Speaking of software development...

there is a book entitled, "Code Complete..." My copy is in a client's office or I would provide the full title. Anyway, a few years back it was recommended here, I think by Karsten Self. It is just full of all kinds of information, tables, and lists, all to do with the "construction" of software projects. Every time I refer to the book I am simply amazed to think that anyone could produce such an effective, detailed, voluminous book about such a problematic issue.

The book was well worth the price.
