"I attended this System Internet Business Training Seminar last year and it has helped me tremendously. They have now opened up registration to the public for a limited time." - Jeff Love

Who else wants a proven "System" that turns raw ideas into solid businesses and solid businesses into raging cash machines in days and weeks instead of years?

Don't delay because 67 industry insiders have already snatched up precious seats on word-of-mouth alone.

"System" students have made major financial breakthroughs, not in years, but within months - sometimes just days - after graduating. Now, in 2003, for the first time ever, the "System" is being made available to the general public after years of secrecy.

Effective C++ and More Effective C++:

In these two free online C++ books, you'll find advice on what you should do, and why, and what you should not do, and why not. Unlike most books on C++, the author's presentation is not organized around particular language features, but rather each discussion in the book is tailored to the guideline it accompanies, and coverage of the various aspects of a particular language feature are dispersed throughout the book. The advantage of this approach is that it better reflects the complexity of the software systems for which C++ is often chosen.
