Submission + - Printing to the console

uneek writes: Why is printing to the console such a bottleneck? Applications that do not print to the console are at least 30 times faster than apps that do. This seems to be the case in both windows and linux.

Submission + - Computer architecture for toddlers

uneek writes: I have a computer that is broken that is about to be dissected for educational reasons. I would like to find a book, targeted at six year old / kindergarten reading level that talks about the parts of a computer using both pictures and words. I would like my child to take good guesses at what parts are as we take them out.

Does anyone have any recommendations?

Thanks

Submission + - Good books on programming threads

uneek writes: Hello: I have been programming for several years now in a variety of languages, most recently C#, Java, and Python. I have never had to use threads for a solution in the past. Recently I have been incorporating them more in my solutions for clients. I understand the theory behind them. However I am looking for a good book on programming threads from an applied point of view. I am looking for one or more texts that provide thorough coverage and provide meaningful exercises. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks
