"Operating Systems Design and Implementation Third Edition" by Andrew S. Tanenbaum

The MINIX 3 boot image (also called system image) is a concatenation of several program files: the kernel, process manager, file system, reincarnation server, several device drivers and init, as shown in Fig 2-30. Note that MINIX 3 as described here is configured with just one disk driver in the boot image, but several may be present, with the active one selected by a label. Like all binary programs, each file in the boot image includes a header that tells how much space to reserve for uninitialized data and stack after loading the executable code and initialized data, so the next program can be loaded at the proper address.

Edit - Fixed a grammatical error.

"Sasha's mouth twisted Sharply.
"For the first moth after the game started, I was out in the world, leveling up to beat the game... but one day, I spotted one of these kids on a street corner in town. I just couldn't leave him to fend for himself, so I brought him to live in my rented inn room with me. Once I'd started that, I couldn't stop thinking about other children in his situation, so I went around the city trying to round up all the kids I could find. Next thing I knew, I was doing this right here. Seeing people like you, who are fighting for all of us up above... I feel ashamed that I dropped out of our quest."
"No... no!"
Asuna shook her head, desperately searching for the right words...

“Stuck inside here.” He tapped his fingers on the crystal ball. “It’s a Foreseer’s crystal ball. The kind they use to see visions. But to see the future, they actually have to go into the future.” He flicked the ball with his finger again. “By going inside.” “But why would I get stuck inside it? I’m not a Foreseer.” “Yeah, but you’re…different. I don’t think you should touch it.”

From Don Quixote, by Cervantes. God, the paragraph takes up a page and a half:


"And that night he will take his leave of his lady the princess through the grillework at the window where she sleeps, which overlooks the garden, and through this grillework he has already spoken to her many times, their go-between and confidante being a lady-in-waiting greatly trusted by the princess. he will sigh, she will swoon, the lady-in-waiting will bring water, sorely troubled because morning is coming and, for the sake of her lady's honor, she does not wish them to be discovered. Finally the princess will regain consciousness and pass her white hands through he grillework to the knight, who will kiss them over and over again and bathe them in his tears. The two of them will agree on the manner in which they will keep each other informed of their fortunes and misfortunes, and the princess will beg him to tarry as little as possible; he will promise, making any vows; he will kiss her hands one more time and say goodbye with so much emotion that his life will almost come to an end. Then he goes to his room, throws himself on the bed, cannot sleep because of the pain of their parting, arises very early in the morning, goes to take his leave of the king, the queen, and the princess; they tell him, when he has bade farewell to the first two, that her highness the princess is indisposed and cannot receive visitors; the knight thinks it is because of the sorrow at his leaving, his heart wounded, and it is all he can do not to show clear signs of his suffering. The lady-in-waiting, their confidante, is present, and she will take note of everything and recount it all to her lady, who receives her in tears and tells her that one of her greatest griefs is not knowing who her knight is, or if he is of royal lineage; the lady-in-waiting assures her that the degree of courtesy, gallantry, and valor displayed by her knight can exist only in a royal and illustrious person; the suffering princess consoles herself with this; she attempts to find consolation so as not to appear in a bad light before her parents, and after two days she appears in public."


I suppose I am a hopeless romantic and a madman who believes that he is a great knight.


Haha! I almost used Don Quixote, but decided it would be too long to type out

That made me think of the first two thirds of Journey to the Centre of the Earth, which is mostly the narrator listing of the minerals and rocks that he and his uncle see as they go deeper into the tunnel.
