    You probably need to be a nerd/geek to truly appreciate this, but, check out the review (about half way down the page) by John E. Fracisco of the following book :sad:

    I always liked Tracert the Otter.. the much loved, but oft forgotten twin brother of Tarka.

    His stories of shell commands and scripting had me coming back for more 'when I were a lad'.

    In this vein, surely Harry Potter is all about peer to peer (Ron, Hermione and Harry) networks working under a liberal network environment (Dumbledore) to defeat the evil top down information/magic syndicates?
