I guess I didn't stick to my new year's resolution about blogging more. We are battling with cold, Jim drugged home from office, again. Every single flu we had over the years he brought home from work. I get the impression his office is ridden with diseased people full to the brim with infections. I am coping and he had a full-blown man's flu, when he couldn't eat or get up. He lost a lot of weight. Even now, after couple of weeks, he still cant shake of cough.
Pixie and Dixie have grown about twice in size since we bought them. But we don't play with them as often as we would like lately, because we are afraid to give them this flu.
I watched a bunch of movies and tv episodes and half read a book called Inside the Machine: An Illustrated Introduction to Microprocessors and Computer Architecture by Jon Stokes. I have an university degree in Management Information Systems. But this degree is more about business than computers. Sort of like: how to replace a thousands of people with one soleless software and the like. I have only an approximate idea about what is inside the computer, but I was always curious to learn more about this. So, when I saw this book, I couldn’t resist it. The first 3 chapters give general knowledge about how pc processors work and the rest of the book compares details of different specific microprocessors. I didn't read in details past first 3 chapters as by then my curiosity was satisfied. The book is oversimplified and examples and illustrations are overdetailed, so absolutely anyone can understand it. I would recommend it to anyone, who like to learn as leisure-time and are curious how computers work.
