11 Vessels they are meant to protect (6)

Book meme:

  • Grab the nearest book.
  • Open it to page 56.
  • Find the fifth sentence.
  • Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
  • Don’t dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.

The nearest book to me was a cryptic crossword book. This is the fifth across clue from the 56th crossword.  No idea what the answer might be.  Any ideas?

UPDATE:  Chris has done this over on his blog.

UPDATE 2: The answer is LINERS

    ‘The local variable is defined thoughout the body of the function, which means the global variable by the same name is hidden throughout the function’ – JavaScript: The Definitive Guide by D Flanagan. Not my coolest book, which at the moment is The Road by Cormac McCarthy but nearest to my desk.

    “Variables in JavaScript are fundamentally the same as object properties.” Not very exciting but it gets the point across :-)

    From O’Reilly’s ‘JavaScript The Definitive Guide’.

    Is everyone reading this book? Should I get it?

    Note that calling setLookAndFeel() like this overrides the value of the swing.defaultlaf property, if the end user has set one

    Mine’s the 3rd Edition, and looks like page 56′s sentence is a little different. It is a good reference guide for native JS, but I mostly use the Internet for JS/jQuery troubles. Is the closest book in my work-library…

    After picking up 4 books that didn’t have 5 sentences on page 56, I found one that did. Guh to design books and their lack of sentences (but oh so lovely pictures!)

    “Do you have an answer?”

    From “How to be a graphic designer without losing your soul”
