Do you mean things like Digital Fortress (Dan Brown)?
What makes it a "programming" novel? (would the movie Hackers count as a book?)

And based on 30+ years of experience... WHY? I live in a fictional Programming world, where we were just asked to deliver a small 12 week project by Feb 1st. COMPLETED, and they are still "working out" the contract they hope to sign by Monday/Tuesday of next week.

I think I get MORE than enough FICTION... LOL...
[On the bright side, if we pound in 90hr work weeks, bring in some extra resources (ROTFLMAO), and put other projects on hold... I am CONFIDENT that by Feb 1st. We will have 80% of the ANSWERS to the questions we gave them last week. LOL)... And you want to read MORE Fiction?

My gosh... Where do you work? (And how do you have time to read?)

LOL

Straw Poll

On which operating systems are you writing code?
Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
