I’ve read the CISSP book twice, cover to cover.
Ugh. For every bright spot the book has (various thoughts on where one should put a phone room or server room), there’s a list of trivia that one is expected to memorize rather than overall theory. For example: in discussing various fire suppression methods, they talk about the upsides/downsides of wet vs. dry vs. inert gas and that’s all well and good. But the questions at the end of the chapter talk about how Halon 1301 is being replaced by stuff like FE-13.
Dude. We need to figure out the circumstances under which inert gas would be preferable. By the time February rolls around, we’ll probably be replacing FE-13 with something. The important part is to say “this calls for foam” or “this calls for inert gas” and not “this calls for FE-13”.
But that’s beside the point. I stopped by a mall to maybe pick up a paperback of something pleasantly disposable but the local mall does not have a bookstore. Which is totally creepy because it’s freakin’ huge. They’ve got dozens of jewelry stores, toy stores, hip clothing stores, and “body products” (ew!) stores but NO BOOK STORES.
Brave New World talked about this.
So… what are you reading and/or watching?
