comment Why do people use programming books?
Books are becoming digital media. Admittedly the current generation of dedicated e-book readers like the kindle don't do well with technical books, like programming books. Given how fast the hardware is advancing, I think in just a few years you will have much better e-book readers and much better e-books to go with them. Books on programming have always been a popular way to learn new languages and technologies. I don't see this changing and with new formats books will become an even better tools for learning.

comment Logistics of code reuse (OOP)
Documentation is the key. Even you will forget what you coded 6 months ago. If it is not documented, it might as well not exist.

comment Representing timezone list
It is logical to sort by timezones, but most people will know if they are in the same timezone as a major city.
