I do that too -- if I'm under the "free shipping" amount I look for another book to add to the list. I also have one on my iPad called "Napoleon's Buttons", which sounds interesting (I think it's about chemistry)

Max, Interesting book to search next time I need to fill my shoping cart in Amazon, for free shipping. Although a taboo topic, I can appreciate the historical value of those notes. ;-)

Another book that looks interesting is "Napoleon's Buttons: How 17 Molecules Changed History". In fact I already have the electronic version of this book downloaded onto my iPad ... it's just waiting for me to find the time to read it...

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
