ER had been Dr. Sam Petrie's specialty, and his love... until a violent gang war spilled into his world. He lived and breathed emergency medicine. This all changed one night when murderous drug gangs... More > extended their killing into Sam's world. Carl Thurston, a burly, gruff, streetwise cop and Sam's best friend, answered the call for police rescue in the ER , which had been taken over by gun- toting, bullet-spraying thugs of the local drug cartel. When the smoke cleared, the only two sons of the drug lord, Carlos Quinterra, had been shot and killed by Officer Thurston. The dream becomes a nightmare as they are unwittingly entangled in a brutal web of retribution for Quinterra's sons, murder, and deceit which takes them from peaceful Upstate New York, to the serene and later blood soaked forests of Montana. As they struggle for psychological as well as physical survival, Sam and Carl find their strengths, the limits of their friendship and unconditional love.< Less

We are using computers in environments where our software is the ``brain'' of the system, which has minimal or no interaction with human, e.g., car engine control systems, assembly line robots,... More > etc.;these systems must operate in our notion of time, i.e., real time. This book is about how to deal with time and concurrency in software. Computers can execute instructions much faster than we can count. We use our software (or computer) to accomplish as many activities as possible every second. A processor can only execute one instruction at a time. To deal with concurrent activities, we need to multiplex the processor among a set of independent or cooperating activities. This book explains the timing and concurrency issues in software, discusses concepts that are relevant to real time programming, presents a set of techniques that are useful in practice, and shows how to construct a simple real time operating system that may help in dealing with time and concurrency.< Less
