The Joy of TeX is the user-friendly guide to AMSTeX, a software package based on the computer typesetting language TeX. AMSTeX was designed to simplify typesetting of mathematical quantities, equations, and displays, and to format the output according to any of various preset style specifications. This second edition of Joy reflects the changes introduced on Version 2.0 of the AMSTeX macro package. The first two parts of the manual, ``Starters'' and ``Main Courses'', teach the reader how to typeset the kind of text and mathematics one ordinarily encounters. ``Sauces and Pickles'', the third section, treats more exotic problems and includes a 60-page dictionary of special TeXniques. The manual also includes descriptions of conventions of mathematical typography to help the novice technical typist. Appendices list handy summaries of frequently used and more esoteric symbols. This manual is useful for technical typists as well as scientists who prepare their own manuscripts. For the novice, exercises sprinkled generously throughout each chapter encourage the reader to sit down at a terminal and learn through experimentation.

Molly's and Tex's abrupt and accidental deaths have granted them a unique opportunity to brazenly reinvent their personal realities--not to mention a chance to commune with various forsaked ancient deities and down-and--out woodland spirits. But a pair of gentle souls once firmly rooted in the Earth cannot so easily vacate this corporeal plane. There are despoilers, witches, wolves, outlaw hackers, and rabid survivalists running wild through the soon-to-be corporately mutated Great North Woods. And Tex and Molly aren't about to vanish forever into the fast-moving eddy of Time until they take one last shot at profoundly influencing Eternity and this Life that is no longer theirs. Like a racous pagan dance in Thomas Pynchon's garden, here is a novel rich in intelligence, wit, unrestrained joy, and serious strangeness--a truly breathtaking flight of the imaginatino--written with style and heart by an award-winning storyteller whom the Washington Post once proclaimed "either a genius or a madman."

Genre: Cooking

The tastes of Tex-Mex cooking are well-known and much loved despite that, most people dont know how simple and tasty it is to prepare the food yourself, from scratch. In the USA, this sort of properly made Mex food is rapidly gaining in popularity: several of the trendiest young restaurateurs have left their restaurants to start mobile food places in so-called Taco trucks. It is from the US border states, rather than directly from Mexico, that we get our inspiration for this book. Such as from Texas with its robust Tex-Mex food inspired by both their southern neighbor and by cowboy culture with its beans, cheesy enchiladas and smoky BBQ. Or New Mexico with its smoky, luxurious and more authentic Mexican cuisine, and California with its well-prepared Mex food, so-called fresh Mex. Often made with fish and shellfish, and always without using any semi-manufactured products, of course. Beautiful images of settings are followed by simple recipes, entertaining Tex- Mex stories and extremely nerdy tips like where on the hamburger one really should put the accessories, or why it ought to be forbidden to mix your guacamole. This book is planned with an introductory chapter where the reader can learn the basics of Tex-Mex cooking: how to make your own tortillas, deep fry your own nacho chips, knock together the perfect guacamole, make the hottest chilli sauce, make your own BBQ smoker and so on. Then there are separate chapters on: side dishes; tacos, enchiladas and burritos; salads and soups; BBQ; sandwiches and hamburgers; desserts; drinks.
