Test-Driven Development with Python
Test-Driven Development with Python
by Harry J.W. Percival
Edition: Paperback
Price: £29.99

5.0 out of 5 stars system environments or configurations are required and it communicates that Harry has taken great care in choosing the surroundi, 11 Mar. 2015
In this book, Harry constructs and introduces the reader into the world of Test Driven Development. His examples are well thought out and evenly paced.
No unwiedly IDEs, system environments or configurations are required and it communicates that Harry has taken great care in choosing the surrounding frameworks. These decisions will no doubt prove themselves in years to come, as I expect the book will age much better than most technical books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Coffee Junkies never leave home without it!, 18 April 2006
This mug is the BEST way to produce coffee without all the clutter of excess equipment. So very simple but very effective, I've not had a bad cup of coffee and never been so easy to clean than a messy cafetiere. The thermal properties of this mug also excell, as it stays hot for a long time and will not burn your hand.

Also unlike other plastic mug products, you don't taste the plastic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just keep on getting better, 18 Sept. 2004
This distribution comes with everything you need to set down on the linux road, it's jammed packed with all the applications you need, lots of docs and the most important this is it appeals to people of all userlevels.
Ofcourse there's still middle sections, where upgrading key system components will be hard for some users. But that's linux, a simple user who does word processing and browses the internet will have no problem just using the system.
Alot of the applications on the cd are easy to install, YAST is wonderful for this. It'll do all the work, as previously said. The only hard bit is related to linux. Before SuSE I was completly lost, but now when I'm doing work I see no difference between using SuSE & Windows.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just not Funny, 31 July 2003
I seriously advise anyone against even considering buying this product, Avid Marion is some of the worst comedy ever released on tv & dvd.
He began with a good start doing a spin off alongside Big Brother 3, with him kidnapping BB2 housemates. That was funny, but his series is unwatchable. There are some elements which have a certain good value but overall it's just not funny.
One of the key themes through the show is the use of plastic masks, he represents characters through the use of disguises. However the context he puts with the characters and the loosely based cheap laughs just add up to bad sketchs.
If you want to see some quality Current Affairs comedy, get the Dead Ringers DVD.
