I'll have to check that book out.

While we're at it, perhaps one of the most important things programmers
should know (or do know, but ignore), DON'T PUT DATA IN CODE!  It kills
me every time I need to grep through a codebase to pull out a
hard-coded email address or company name (yeah, guess what I'm doing
now -- kill me, please)
