mr. bunny's guide to activex
by carlton egremont iii
"activex is just a new way of controlling your pixels," says mr. bunny. "can you say 'pixel'?"
so begin the adventures of mr. bunny and farmer jake. in his new book carlton egremont iii brings the complex topic of activex to a new audience - a target group with the combined intelligence of a sack of creme caramels.* from the beginner-oriented table of contents (each page is listed, along with its page number) and the incredibly annoying index (every entry says "see activex"), you will find page after page of printed words and space wasting screen shots, just like a real technical book. you simply must see it to believe it - particularly if you are a chewy candy.
this is the first technology book by carlton egremont iii, author of numerous lengthy grocery lists (unpublished), one or two letters to his mom (unsent), and a doodle on page 117 of the rochester public library's copy of moby dick (overdue). mr. bunny's guide to activex makes a lovely gift for the nerd who has everything, and is perfect for propping up uneven table legs. for the high-tech parent there is simply no better antidote to yet another bedtime reading of "the velveteen rabbit" or the "ole 2 programmer's reference". just like carlton, you and your children will come to believe in a talking bunny, a befuddled farmer, and a technology called activex.
