I sat in an airport line for an hour once with a woman who knew
Spector. So she asked me what I thought of the book, and you guys know
me well enough to know how good of a spin I put on my answer: "Well,
he seemed to have a clue about high availability, but the Beowulf
section was pretty crappy."

It turns out that he's well aware of that, and was egged on to write a
"complete" book by the editors. Ah well, it's a shame no matter how it
