Okay... I hate to admit it, but I'm a sucker for this movie. Sure it's just a rehash of an original series episode, but the effects were great for their time and since being cleaned up in the director's cut still workable.

I have a much earlier printing with a considerably different cover. So I've always had a sneaking suspicion that the "me" that I observe is not the complete "me". I mean, my subconscious gets me doing all sorts of wacky stuff.

So if you agree with the definition that "Magick" is the willed change of the self, then Hyatt's premise here is somewhat like "get down deep, say 'hi' to the bits of your mind that inform your perceptions, make them your allies in changing bits of yourself that you want to change.

Or, it could just be a load of crap. But this book is entertaining and not full of itself in the way that most new age self-help manuals are.

Acclaimed user interface guru Jef Raskin was in charge of the original Macintosh project at Apple. After a tiff with Steve Jobs, Raskin left to find greener pastures. But his relentless search for a better user interface never ceased. And this text is the overview of his "humane" interface for computers.

Radically different from WIMP interfaces we know today, the Humane Interface is compelling and alien, but calls out to be tested.

Raskin's book may not convince you that his interface is the best, but it will provide input into how computer-human interfaces are evaluated.

Highly recommended.

This book is a collection of essays relating to the lesser investigated aspects of human space colonization. Focusing on the ethical, sociological, economic and biological aspects of interstellar migration, this is the first book I've seen to take a serious look at the "soft" science of space.

Another book from Leo Brodie. This is more of an "epi-programming" text. In other words, it's not a language tutorial, but rather a series of technical essays about how to approach problem solving in FORTH.

A PDF of the text is available for download at http://thinking-forth.sourceforge.net/ .

One of the essential references for introducing FORTH to the technical non-specialist. A good introduction if you've never seen FORTH or have been away from it for a while.

This book is hard to find in print these days, but an online version is available at http://home.iae.nl/users/mhx/sf.html

If you get no other book on cryptography, this is the one to get. An extremely solid overview of the subject matter, it suffers from only from being vague on a few points (that can be found from a web search) and being somewhat out of date with respect to elliptic curve crypto.
