The Web Book - Build Static and Dynamic Websites by Riaz Ahmed
same as another reviewer, i am programmer who hasnt touched web since html whatever and early flash in the late 90s

sat down this sunday lunchtime, by 5pm I had a decent working understanding of HTML5, CSS, PHP and MySQL basics.

ive never found such a good resouce for rapidly getting up to speed on something. u could waste hours and hours doing web tutorials

there is of course still much to learn, but i feel that nothing is out of my reach with a little effort.

as a small aside, ive since done a jQuery tutorial which helps supplement this knowledge (its short hand javascript and works well with php)

i can now get round to what i… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect - For me, 6 Jan 2012
I must admit I am somewhat confused as to the reviews this book has gotten so far. However, this is likely because I am using the book differently to others.

For my purposes this books has been everything I need. I got the book at Christmas and now have a pretty good foundation 2D physics engine for my game engine (this book primarily covers 3D, but coversion to 2D is relatively simple, and the maths is easier. there is even a chapter on what you need to convert!)

5.0 out of 5 stars The best, hands down, 12 Jan 2010
I was replying to a comment wrote so much thoughti might as well review the tv! i have this tv, absolutely flawless, comments on the internet about uneven backlight, bleed, NOTHING on mine, picture second to none. Sound could be better but is a slim tv, if your paying this for a tv you should be getting the surround sound set up. Blacks are inky, the BlueRay 24p is just fantastic and for sports motion flow is brilliant (minimal/no two cricket ball defects etc)

had the X3500 before and this is notably better

if your main concerns are a beautiful picture, smooth motion, nice SD and gorgeous minimalist design, this TV is a must. Game mode is clocked at around 40ms input… Read more
