Read Across America Day 2017


Today is Read Across America Day, and to celebrate the day I wanted to share what I'm reading now and recently finished. And, of course, Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

Reading Now

Extreme Ownership by Jocko Willink and Leif Babin

Extreme Ownership is written by two former Navy SEALs and conveys leadership principles from battlefield experiences.

Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl

This is a reread for me. For those unfamiliar, the book is Viktor Frankl’s memoir of life in Nazi concentration camps and focuses on how though we can't avoid suffering, we always have a choice in how we react to it.

Recently Finished

What Every BODY is Saying: An Ex-FBI Agent’s Guide to Speed-Reading
by Joe Navarro and Marvin Karlins

This was a useful and readable primer on understanding and reading nonverbal body language by a former FBI counterintelligence officer.

Blubber by Judy Blume

Judy Blume's classic about bullying is still as relevant today as it was when it was first published over 40 years ago.

The Chaneysville Incident by John Bradley

I read a lot of books, and sometimes even manage to comment about them here. More often that not, I enjoy most of the books I post about. This is probably because (admittedly) I look for books by authors I already know or that I have an inkling -- from word of mouth or reviews -- that I'll enjoy.

Still, you never know when you're going to read a book that you really like or that makes others pale in comparison. The Chaneysville Incident is such a novel.

I came to read The Chaneysville Incident after asking for suggestions for a big book for my long flights to and from Japan. One of my work colleagues suggested it, and though I'd never heard of it or author John Bradley, I decided to give it a try.

I'm really glad I did. On the surface, the novel is a well-honed and affecting story of historian John Washington's attempt to discover what happened to thirteen runaway slaves in Chaneysville, Pennsylvania. The protagonist's efforts to reconstruct the past elevate the n…

Configuring a Wireless HP Photosmart C4380

Updated on 2009-11-16:
It's been over a year since I wrote this, and lot of people continue to find this page from Google, which leads me to believe that people are still having problems with their HP Photosmart C4380s. For the record, over a year later the workaround I detailed here is still working for me. If you have something to add that might help others, please feel free to add to the comments. The original post follows below.

##

So, we bought a wireless printer. After some initial back and forth, we settled on a wireless HP Photosmart C4380. I thought we did a fair bit of research before purchasing the product, but apparently not enough, as there were many issues and surprises that we discovered only after we setup the device.

I'm posting this to relate the significant difficulties we encountered setting up the printer and post workarounds I've implemented for the benefits of others who might be considering this product or who may have already purchased it and are l…
