Different versions of book.

Post  Lindacol on 12/26/2011, 10:34 pm

Today I saw this version of the book in the seed rack at HD. It is a small book for $4.99.





The regular book pictured below was available in the book/magazine area. Not sure of the price but think it was something like $17.





I can see where newbies might be confused..

There was a thread about this last month:

http://squarefoot.creatingforum.com/t9315-how-much-corn-per-sfg-square

Some chapters are missing from the shorter version.

I remember that thread but I searched & couldn't find it tonight. I don't recall seeing the different covers before and thought it might help to see the difference.

Hmm, maybe we do need an emoticon of the book...

James, a newbie is basically a new person to a particular subject.


Definition: A newbie is a slang term for a person who is new to the Internet and Web culture in general. For example, if you're not familiar with something on a message board, you might be called a "newbie". Usually this isn't meant to be derogatory, it's simply a classification term.
Also Known As: Newb
Alternate Spellings: Noob, noobie

Just ordered original 1981 sfg book

Post  kauairosina on 3/18/2014, 6:25 pm

I've borrowed it from the library and find it has lots of interesting tidbits that make it worth having as a reference.  Looks like Mel couldn't get everything in the newest book.

Hello,

I know this particular post is from 2011, but there is a distinction in these definitions.

While newb or newbie is not meant to be derogatory, noob or noobie is. At least that was the distinction I found after years of gaming.
