    It's more or less the bible of algorithms. you won't need anything else
    From now on a large part of your life will be spent finding and correcting your own mistakes.
    And if you are lucky and land yourself a good job, a whole lot more time will be spent finding and correcting other people's mistakes.
    That has to be good, no?

    Got Head First in the mail today and only got up past their design philosophy, seems interesting to say the least. Guess I'll now be able to get back into java since it's what the book uses but I'm sure it's easy to translate, just wanted to get back into java for a while. Seems like a good read, kind of corny comedy but it seems to be an "active" learning book.
