Black Stallion Revolts and Ghost

I finished Revolts. Farley is really good at writing thrillers. A friend's daughters get very excited watching tense movies or episodes, especially the youngest girl, even when they know the plot and outcome; youngest will get up to shake out tension, or hide from the TV, or cling to mother for comfort. I felt a lot like that reading this book, having to put down the book because eeeeeee. This despite the fact that if you describe the plot baldly, it's a ridiculous concatenation of unlikely setbacks.

Oh, and the plane did crash, but *not* because of the storm! Well played, Farley.

I'm currently reading the Black Stallion's Ghost, which I'm sure I did read, because I doubt there are two novels in the series with the Everglades, sawgrass, Seminoles, and twisted icons. I still recall nothing of the plot.

    Ah, gobbled up in the rift, no doubt.

    The most systematic way I have is working through a tutorial for the language.

    A couple years ago I'd been working on what I called Language Reference Suites, which were big blobs of code doing…

    No, but my roommates had a cat that would stalk and attack me.

    Do you have some systematic way of learning a new coding language, or characterizing it for reference as you learn it?
