And to Think That I Saw It on talk.bizarre
Responding to the demand for more stories by the
incredibly talented but still completely dead Dr. Seuss,
the publishers of this book have scoured Usenet
for parodies of Seuss's style. Includes such
poorly-rhymed favorites as "If I Ran the Server," "Green Cards and SPAM,"
and 47 different Star Trek parodies!
This book helps children come to terms with one of the
difficult truths of life: the built-in obsolescence of
their electronic equipment. "Goodnight Moog" shows
your child that his or her computer, video game console,
and even audio equipment will someday be out-of-date,
but it also provides hope that
it may someday live again through the magic of retro.
A wonderful way to introduce children to binary numbers,
this is a whimsical story about a systems administrator, his
wife, and the database he uses to keep track of their
dogs. From the author of "0x4e20 Leagues Under the Sea."

delivered using Microsoft Midwife Suite 98.
The Fandom Tollbooth
