Hopefully this is not too spammy, but I figured that others might like to know about the deal.
I've heard (many times) that Code Complete is very good-- I'm strongly considering purchasing it.
A fascinating book for both those who know nothing about computers, and so well written it's still a great read for those who know them inside out. If not for yourself, it's possibly a great gift for a family member who wonders what exactly it is that you 'do'.
It's been mentioned here a lot of times during the last few weeks.
More practically, how do I know I'm /allowed/ to use it, and O'Reilly won't be within their rights to bill me the full amount later when they work out what's going on?
A link to the page in the summary would have been a good thing to have though.
I'd consider it tribute for putting a worthwhile book into the world as such.
I preferred it to RESTful Web Services, which is rather long winded.
no joy for me.
Edit: works for ebooks only for me, not for printed versions. I'm outside the US, so that may be a factor?
edit: it explicitely says it's only for e-books and videos.
Not sure about the US-only bit, though.
