Steaming Into (4 Book Series)
From Book 1: “The tales are a fascinating mix of anecdotes about the working lives of footplate men... readers with a railway bent will find themselves moved. This ebook is incredibly good value for money.” Gauge 0 Guild Gazette

Steaming into the Firing Line is a set of short stories based on and around the railways of North West England during the Second World War.

Humorous and moving, the collection tells the tale of a group of railwaymen during the latter days of the memorable age of steam.

Readers will quickly warm to the book’s characters and will be compelled to read of the day-to-day lives of drivers and firemen, their colleagues and their passengers, during this particularly challenging time in British history.

Author Michael Clutterbuck is himself the son of a railwayman from that era. This is clear from the realism and detail evident throughout the book.

By no means just for steam rail enthusiasts, Steaming into the Firing Line offers an insight into the Second World War from an unusual and interesting vantage point.

“The author’s railway family background ensures that the stories are very realistic – especially in the banter between the, by and large, well-drawn characters! ... even a working engineman couldn’t find too much to fault. Recommended.” Steam Railway magazine

Addison-Wesley Professional Computing Series (2 Book Series)
From Book 1:

“For an engineer determined to refine and secure Internet operation or to explore alternative solutions to persistent problems, the insights provided by this book will be invaluable.”

—Vint Cerf, Internet pioneer


TCP/IP Illustrated, Volume 1, Second Edition, is a detailed and visual guide to today’s TCP/IP protocol suite. Fully updated for the newest innovations, it demonstrates each protocol in action through realistic examples from modern Linux, Windows, and Mac OS environments. There’s no better way to discover why TCP/IP works as it does, how it reacts to common conditions, and how to apply it in your own applications and networks.


Building on the late W. Richard Stevens’ classic first edition, author Kevin R. Fall adds his cutting-edge experience as a leader in TCP/IP protocol research, updating the book to fully reflect the latest protocols and best practices. He first introduces TCP/IP’s core goals and architectural concepts, showing how they can robustly connect diverse networks and support multiple services running concurrently. Next, he carefully explains Internet addressing in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks. Then, he  walks through TCP/IP’s structure and function from the bottom up: from link layer protocols–such as Ethernet and Wi-Fi–through network, transport, and application layers.


Fall thoroughly introduces ARP, DHCP, NAT, firewalls, ICMPv4/ICMPv6, broadcasting, multicasting, UDP, DNS, and much more. He offers extensive coverage of reliable transport and TCP, including connection management, timeout, retransmission, interactive data flow, and congestion control. Finally, he introduces the basics of security and cryptography, and illuminates the crucial modern protocols for protecting security and privacy, including EAP, IPsec, TLS, DNSSEC, and DKIM. Whatever your TCP/IP experience, this book will help you gain a deeper, more intuitive understanding of the entire protocol suite so you can build better applications and run more reliable, efficient networks.

Arbortext Monster Garage (2 Book Series)
From Book 1: This book covers the basics for getting Arbortext products configured correctly, so you can get started right away, without help from consultants and service partners. This book details the custom directory and points out the essential files new users need to know about. These files and folders are the keys to further configuring your environment, and customizing it (if you absolutely need to).

This book is not meant to replace the product documentation because, at well over 5000 pages, the complete Arbortext documentation covers much more than the basics. The product documentation can also be intimidating enough that it hinders speedy adoption for new users and leaves them at risk of using fragile environments and depending on consultants and service partners for even the most basic understanding.

The toughest thing about learning any new software package is shifting your perspective or expectations: Either you try to force the software to do things that fit your current situation through extensive customization ("Same Mess, Different Tools") or you adapt and change your processes to incorporate not only the new software but the new paradigm it represents. Our opinion is that you shouldn't need to customize and for 90% of technical documentation needs advanced customization is never required.

For the average use case, Arbortext works great right out of the box. This book shows you how to get started quickly in the most effective and most beneficial (to you) way possible. (And decrease your need to be dependent on consultants when you're first starting out.)

This book will show you how to shift your understanding so that you can make the most of your investment in your world. By getting this brief introduction to the product suite and the key folders and files, not only can you get started right away but you know where to go in the product documentation to understand more.

If you’re a brand new Arbortext user and feel that most of your technical publication needs are similar to 80-90% of technical publications out there, this book is for you. Even if you’ve got more complicated needs, this book is still for you. It doesn’t matter what industry or what country you’re in: Arbortext is used by customers in every industry in countries all around the world.
