Goodreads: Book Review: Predator Vs. Magnus Robot Fighter

Predator Vs. Magnus Robot Fighter

 Predator Vs. Magnus Robot Fighter by Jim Shooter

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I read this book because it had such bad reviews, I had to see if it was really that bad. It was.

Predator, is an alien that hunts humans for sport.

Magnus Robot Fighter, is a dude who fights robots with martial arts. He lives in the 41st century in a society that resembles the Roman Empire. I had never heard of him before I heard of this book. I’m not sure why he fights robots. It seems to me that he was friends with some robots in this book.

Anyway, Predator fights Magnus. Magnus wins. This book is very bad. I got it for 3 bucks and figured it was worth buying for that cheap.

A disgruntled employee at a dealership used the web tool for disabling stolen cars to disable cars that hadn’t been stolen.

This guy wasn’t really a hacker…  Stupid sensational wired headlines.

High level description for a design of a memory management system that uses colored pages to enforce side channel security requirements.

Robert D. Silverman’s write up of Peter L. Montgomery’s multiple polynomial improvements to the Quadratic Sieve.

from the well-presented-but-useless-information dept:

Interesting information about internet usage and some computer security stuff.

Dick Lipton responds to Neal Koblitz’s most recent article.

A silent movie version of “Alice in Wonderland.”

From the Cyberpunk-future is now dept:

Big Brother meets Lord of the Flies.

Although I think /b/-tards were into it before the chinese got into it.

Cute article on the mathematics in “Alice in Wonderland.”

Lots of the information in here can also be found in Martin Gardner’s excellent book “The Annotated Alice”
