Storage Technologies Should Usably Persist (for 2400+ years)

It is interesting to consider that the thoughts of one person who lived in a society which seems familiar yet alien 2400 years before I was born are not only still available to be inspected in their near original state but are communicated to me in a device purchased by my Father when I was born over 4 decades ago. Even more interesting is the thoughts of my father (and countless others) on the thoughts of that 2400 year dead man regardless of age are also available. If you haven’t figured it out yet, I am speaking of books.

A few books that really helped me out

I like reading. Sometimes the book turns on the proverbial light bulb. These are a few of the professional development books that did this for me: Peopleware : Productive Projects and Teams, 2nd Ed. by Tom Demarco & Timothy Lister (at Amazon)

What comes after primary, secondary, tertiary?

A manager popped into my area today and asked this question. Oddly enough my brain immediately answered back quaternary and quinary. Which then caused the inevitable "how do you spell that?" question. A sticky note and a pen and he was running off with a cheerful grin on his face.

Of course then I started to wonder how the heck did I know the answer to that and even more importantly was I right?
