Wild Applications

Background

In the preceding chapters, you learned all the standard poop about computers: you learned about their hardware, operating systems, word processing, communication, spreadsheets, and databases.

But thereís more to computer life than just that! Computer life also includes art, music, games, and fun! Lovemaking, too!

So letís get wild! This section of the book shows you how. It reveals everything wild about computers, including not just wild fun but also wild challenges ó such as building a robot that acts just like you, and finding an accounting program that actually works well!

I wish you happy hunting through this thicket of pleasures and pain. When you finish, youíll understand why computers are just a high-tech form of sadomasochism.

Enjoy!
