I ran across this site: http://www.free-engineering-book...

It looks legit to me. LOTS of topics covered. It is really worth a look.

You got a nose ring? Did that hurt? How does it now look like?

Einstein was right: "Two things are unlimited: the universe and the human stupidity. But i'm not quite sure about the former..."

I tried to download on e at random. Yes there were some pop-ups trying to persuade me to sign up for a premium account and yes, when I got to the download page a slow clock made me wait 60 seconds before I got to enter a Captcha and start the "slow download", It then took the best part of 10 minutes to download 24MB (maybe 50K/s ?). But in the end I got the thing I asked for.

 

Having said that the book ("Some Assembly required") has a (c) 2012 and an ISBN. When I google that ISBN I arrive here:

 

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Some-Ass...

 

If Amazon are charging £60 for a kindle version I would very much doubt that the site where I just got it for free is legitimate.

Thanks for the report. Sounds like a cool book. I have some birthday money left, so maybe I'll go to Amazon.

 

Oh, right. I need a new pair of black shoes. (Shocking, I know, to hear ME say that.)

A "new pair" infers that you already have another pair... you fraud! We should drum you out of the barefeet-only club.
