The Art of Computer Programming: ever heard of it?

This post is not directly TeX-based, but there is a link. I read the magazine PC Plus every month, and last month they had an article called 10 Mistakes every programmer makes. It was pretty good, but one thing really caught my eye: a box entitled Spotlight on … the art of programming. You can imagine my surprise to see that Professor Knuth’s The Art of Computer Programming did not get a mention! So I sent quick e-mail to the editors, which has turned up in the latest issue (301). That’s not to say that the other suggestions were bad, but a quick Google search pops up The Art of Computer Programming as hit number one, so I’d expect it to get a look-in.
