Is it just me or do tech books suffer from the most awful titles? They are incredibly long.
Programming Microsoft ASP.NET 2.0 Core Reference
Programming C# : Building .NET Applications with C#
Data Structures and Problem Solving Using Java
Practical Guidelines and Best Practices for Microsoft Visual Basic and Visual C# Developers
I don't see the sense of having "Microsoft ASP.NET" when "ASP.NET" will suffice. Or "Building .NET Applications with C#" when "Building applications with C#" will suffice. It isn't going to be "Building Java Applications with C#" now is it?
I only bring this up as I am listing all the books in the office and my web-app has to truncuate nearly every single book title. And that is before you get into things like 2nd, 3rd, 4th and nth editions.
I leave all my books at home. I just started with my graduation project and I bought all my books before. I might move them to the office when I need them there. I won't leave my books there since I don't have any private space there.
Anybody else working in a so called flex-office?

I ran into that problem several years ago. One of my books disappeared that I used fairly often. I went wandering around, asking about it, with no results. Finally, I was idly talking to someone, and it turned out they had it.
"I borrowed it one day, and you weren't around."
"You couldn't leave a damn note?"
She wouldn't talk to me after that.
For a long time after that I kept the shelf units over my desk locked.
