Is it that time of the year again?

The book meme is still alive, so once again:

  • Grab the nearest book.
  • Open it to page 56.
  • Find the fifth sentence.
  • Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
  • Don’t dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.
"When the QLabels are added to the status bar, they are automatically reparented to make them children of the status bar."

And the winner is "C++ GUI Programming with Qt 4" second edition by Jasmin Blanchette and Mark Summerfield. Thank <deity> this wasn't "ANSI C" by Kernighan and Ritchie which is lying beneath the Qt book, but sadly Stanisław Lem's "Tales of Pirx the Pilot" where to far away, although also on top of another stack of books

Looks like Mark D. is right - we all are depressingly geeky...
