I'm sure we'll all find something we didn't know in here, and it's a great starter for people wanting to learn about computers...

PC Architecture
- a book by Michael Karbo.

This book is protected by copyright. It has been published in many European countries but never in English language. Therefore I desided to upload it to the Internet. It is free to use as it is for personal, non-commercial use. All rights belong to Michael Karbo. You may not in any way copy the contents.

These web pages have been produced from a Microsoft Word file. Hence the design, which could be a lot better. However, it is too much work for me to clean it all up. So you'll have to live with it as it is.

How DO computers turn programs into actions? [Dec. 25th, 2009|11:08 am]

You know that black-box... that bit of magic where the symbolic stuff you see on your screen gets turned into the electrical patterns inside the chips which exist, and do stuff... this book explains all that in minute detail.

It'll kill the "magic black box" feel of computers, but give you an amazing insight into the physical workings of a computer program...
