Well, we're back from a 3985 mile road trip around the Southeastern
U.S. ending back in Minnesota--- dragging a trailer--- spent somewhere
close to a month visiting battle fields honoring the CSA dead from that
little skirmish between the states 1861-1865... found my great great
grandpa's tomb (he served with the Smyth Dragoons 8th Virginia Cavalry
Co A... did Chancellorsville, and Gettysburg, and D.C.... quite a trip.
So what??? I feel like I own major stock shares in British Petroleum!
No, seriously, in the evenings I worked my way through the 3rd
edition of the book, "Python Programming for the Absolute Beginner":
quiet cool evenings with a starlit sky... my notebook... and python game
programming; what more could I want?

Most of the campgrounds we visited had free wifi in on the grounds,
and there was peace and quite for evaluating a fantastic book. What
makes this book different is that it is project oriented rather than
reference oriented. He teaches programming in Python by teaching the
reader how to construct some simpler games using the Python tools.
I used the public library copy for the trip... but I picked up my
own copy since getting back, and I'm gonna set my kids down with this
text as a fun educational motivator. I'll let you know...
FSF ...free as in freedom/
