Another Title, But Not Really

Filed under: Main — Tags: — admin @ 12:01 am

I do most of my programming stuff on my C For Dummies website, but I thought I’d relate my recent self-publishing efforts here on Wambooli. The TL;DR version: You can now self-publish print books as well as eBooks on Kindle.

Continuing with my byte-madness from last Friday’s blog entry, how about some more computer storage terms? But this time I delve into the utterly trivial, useless, and fun.
