A little less than a month left until The Little Prover will be released. I haven't been this excited about a book for a long time. I've a feeling this book will make it to the top of my favorite books. I love the Little Schemer series. I pre-ordered my copy a month ago. Get yours too!

I just published the 2nd part in my top 100 programming books article series!

http://www.catonmat.net/blog/top-100-books-part-two/

Focusing on practical and theoretical books this time because as Knuth says. "The best theory is inspired by practice; The best practice is inspired by theory."

If you haven't yet, share your favorite programming, science and computer books in the comments. Let's see if our lists match.
Second part of my top 100 programming, software development, science, physics, mathematics and computer books. Knuth's Selected Papers on Computer Science, To Mock a Mockingbird, The Seasoned Schemer, Expert C Programming, Lovasz's Combinatorial Problems and Exercises.

Attempting to overclock my Intel i7 4790k to 5Ghz. Trying out several top thermal pastes:

Phanteks PH-NDC (8.2 W/(m·K)))
Noctua NT-H1 (8.4 W/(m·K))
Prolimatech PK3 (11.2 W/(m·K))
Liquid metal Indigo XS Xtreme (40 W/(m·K))

Not sure which will do best. Liquid metal is pita to apply and clean up. Will start with that and see what the temps are.

Got my tools ready too - lint free wipes, Arcticlean thermal material remover & surface purifier, and 99% Isopropyl.

I've found the perfect headphones for programming and concentration. Bose QuietComfort 25. I'll be sticking with these headphones for years now. I just wrote a quick blog post about them, if you're interested in hearing more:

http://www.catonmat.net/blog/bose-qc25-programming-headphones/

My white kitty also approves my QC25s. She says they help her at her work at catching mice too. (When I'm not using them.)

I'm starting a new article series on my blog called My Top 100 Programming, Computer and Science Books:

http://www.catonmat.net/blog/top-100-books-part-one/

I'll do 5 books at a time as breaking huge tasks in tiny sub tasks is the easiest way to get things done.

Let me know in the comments what your favorite books are!
I'm starting a new article series about my top 100 programming, software development, science, physics, mathematics and computer books. The New Turing Omnibus, The Little Book of Semaphores, Programming Pearls, More Programming Pearls, The Little Schemer, The Elements of Style, The Elements of Programming Style.
