What to read?

As I've previously mentioned, I have a voracious appetite for books and regularly have 3-4 in progress. Last night I was chatting with my wife about a recommendation for her book club. We decided upon a lesser known, but excellent author who has written two books in the SF genre that are very unique. The author is Maria Doria Russel who has written The Sparrow and the sequel Children of God. Maria takes the classic SF plot of first contact and turns it completely on its head. Two of the best stories I have ever read.

ps - Considered and discarded were a couple of other favorites (I was really torn about passing up American Gods, it's fantastic):

Neil Gaiman - Neverwhere
Neil Gaiman - American Gods
Robert A. Heinlein - Job A Comedy of Justice

Hi, Was very badly looking for tunable parameters in sd\\ssd driver and this was really helpfull. Thanks a lot for the same. Same time I would like to clarify one point, that is finding the value of the flag which I found slightly confused.As per the given example, the flag value is given as 0X00015, but as per explanation (bit0 is it towards letf? ..bit0 --> 0,0,0 ......2,0,1 <-- bit17) .If yes the flag value should have been 0x2A000. Say the value is correct , then the bit position may be reversed ...left side is bit 17(bit17--> 0,0,....60,0,2,0,1 <--bit 0). The example refered is .... sd-config-list= "VENDOR1 PRODUCT1","sd-ver1-tst-data"; sd-ver1-tst-data= 1,0x00015,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,60,0,2,0,1; I just confused in the above flag value .. Can you pleas help me to check and confirm what i have done is coorect?if I wanted to set (for SPARC system) throttle max - 64,throttle min - 8,not ready retries - 30 ,busy retries - 30 and reset retries - 30 1).. config1=1,0x9007,64,30,30,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,30,0,0,8,0,0; or 2) config2=1,0x38024,64,30,30,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,30,0,0,8,0,0; Thanks and regards, Joshey Lazer.
