Please send me e-mail if you enjoyed this book (or, even if you didn't). I'd love to hear from you!

Stack Computers: the new wave was originally published by Ellis Horwood Ltd., Chichester England in 1989, ISBN: 0-7458-0418-7. When the book went out of print in 1996, they kindly returned rights to me as the author.


The book has been validated with HoTMetaL Pro 3.0 release 3.21. It uses only minor extensions to core HTML such as the underline attribute. If you have a problem with a specific browser, please let me know and I'll attempt to fix it.


A floppy disk for off-line viewing is available from Mountain View Press. They also sell a hard-copy reprint. If you want to use a web browser without being connected to a network, you may need to use a null socket utility so that your browser runs correctly. I've place a copy of the freeware mozock and nullsock files for PC in a local directory for your convienience, but I cannot guarantee nor support this software. If this doesn't work for you, try doing web searches on the keywords "mozock" and "nullsock" using your favorite search engine.

If you are reading this book from a legally acquired floppy disk, you are granted a single concurrent reading license only ("like a book").
