As an interesting side note, a publisher here in Sweden has
recently started a 10-minute series, with titles such as
"Teach your self Internet in 10 minutes". Seems there is
inflation (or perhaps deflation) in these things.

And it _is_ a silly practice. But then again, corporate
silliness doesn't surprise me that much anymore.
