New Hacker's Dictionary
by Eric S. Raymond
(*)(*)(*)(*)(*)(10)
This new edition of the hacker's own phenomenally succesful lexicon includes more than 200 new entries and updates or revises 175 more. Historically and etymologically richer than its predecessor, it supplies additional background on existing entries and clarifies the murky origins of several important jargon terms (overturning a lew long-standing folk etymologies) while still retaining its high giggle value.
