2.0 out of 5 stars Not Reliable, 17 Sept. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Reliability is poor. Maybe due to hard water, but who knows. Second one I have owned and they both gave up after a year or so. This time 7 days after the one year guarantee. Avoid this product

5.0 out of 5 stars I just love a space opera, 5 Aug. 2013
And this is one of them. The pages keep turning (alright the button keeps clicking) and we move from one cliff edge to the next. As with the first book we are left wanting more. Just how will mankind get its act together to survive? Will Alara and Ethan be re-united? Just what role will Hoff play if he ever becomes an Admiral again and will Tova and her kind look upon humans as something other than food?

This is a great deal of fun. Like all good story tellers, Jasper leaves us always wondering what next, waiting on the edges of our seats with our mouths open. I really am looking forward to the next book in this series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Old Fashioned Space Opera, 1 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dark Space (Kindle Edition)
I bought this because I wanted a bit of escapism through science fiction. I hadn't read a book of this sort for a long time, and was looking to simply enjoy it. And I did. This had elements of Battlestar Galactica, Star Wars, Start Trek, Starship Troopers and probably some others as well. I felt in need of more when I got to the end and felt that this could be the prologue for a much larger story. We have only just left the Dark Space, and have yet to meet the big bad enemy (insects ala Starship Troopers) and the other life forms. So much to look forward to. I cannot give this more than 4 now, because the story i only beginning. But it does have great potential.

This is the first time I have read anything from Jasper T Scott. He will be on my reading list in future. I used to read Asmimov, Herbert, Heinlein, Lem, Le Guin etc. I hope that Scott rekindles my interest in this genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Coding is a Proffession, 13 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book challenges the coder to become a professional practitioner. Many coders behave like tradesmen rather than professionals and therefore get treated that way. The clean coder behaves like any other professional and expects to be treated that way. So what does it mean to behave like a professional. Its hard work but it also sets you apart. Bob challenges us to work hard to keep sharp. To understand all aspects of the profession and not just the bits we like. He also helps us with how to deal with pressure. All in all this is a great book which you may find challenging in behaviour terms.

Bob also pays me a complement in the preface, Thanks Bob

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating insight into the person behind Linux, 6 July 2001
Linus turned out to be that strange combination of what you expected and what you didn't. He is certainly a geek who spent a large amount of time hidden away working at his computer. However I found his views on Open Source refreshing and his general outlook on the industry and life, to be unexpected. Following his travels from Finland to California revealed alot about why he has succeeded and how it has changed him.
Linus in certainly unlike the rest of the key figures in the computer industry and I hope that we get many more like him.
