- SumatraPDF for WINDOWS uses MuPDF, and can “read” DJVU, EPUB, MOBI, AZW/AZW3, PDF, and more.
- DjVuLibre DjVu ebook reading software for WIN, MAC and GNU/LINUX is worth pointing out (if you don’t have windows/SumatraPDF).

PROGRAMMING BOOKS & LIBRARIES
List of Free Learning Resources (most importantly)
If you want to find a learning resource, you should definitely check out our site, Free Learning Resources. And for those who want to learn a computer language, you should check out these books on reSRC.io or on github. This list initially was a clone of stackoverflow – List of Freely Available Programming Books by George Stocker. Now updated, with dead links gone and new content.
Mathematics and computer science Papers of D. J. Bernstein
Author: Bjarne Stroustrup (INVENTOR OF C++ STD)
—note: this is the only programming book I’d listed, –partly because of the resource listed above.
I very much advocate the man’s books as well as CPU/APU/GPU OpCode instructions.
You also might wish to look into Dennis Ritchie and his work — creator of C programming lang.
ECMA — Get to know the public ECMA standards, if you haven’t already.
MIDI STANDARDS COMMITTEE — [TODO]
PRO-GIT — “The entire Pro Git book, written by Scott Chacon and published by Apress, is available here. All content is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution Non Commercial Share Alike 3.0 license. Print versions of the book are available on Amazon.com.” The book is available in several languages and formats, including source (probably hosted on github).
RFC — The RFC series was originated in 1969 by Steve Crocker of UCLA, to organize the working notes of the new ARPAnet research program. For 28 years, this RFC series was managed and edited by the Internet pioneer Jon Postel. For the history of the series, see “30 Years of RFCs” and “40 Years of RFCs“.
Official Internet Protocol Standards: HTML (RFC’s are ASCII/TXT format)
The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) — The mission of the IETF is to make the Internet work better by producing high quality, relevant technical documents that influence the way people design, use, and manage the Internet. Newcomers to the IETF should start here.
GNU Coding Standards — GNU coding standards aside, AUTOCONF, AUTOMAKE, BASH, GREP, MAKE, (the list goes on and onnn)… GNU make/build-system (arguably) remains one of the most versatile build systems available to most computer operating environments.

RESEARCH PAPERS AND GROUPS
Author: (Dr) RICHARD ALAN MILLER
(NOTE) The work of ‘RAM’ is best looked into via a search engine as the public materials provided by RAM are somewhat vast compared to my inclination to provide an index to his content. For brevity, I’ve provided a thesis below and a link to his web-site. RAM is quite active in the public domain providing his ideas via his blog, publications as he is interviewed several radio shows.
“Author and researcher Dr. Richard Alan Miller reveals a depth of knowledge and experience in Alternative Agriculture, Physics, and Metaphysics. Miller began working in the secret world of Navy Intel (Seal Corp. and then MRU) in the late 60s, and now has amazing experiences and conclusions to share. His writings reveal a depth of knowledge and experience in three major fields; Alternative Agriculture, Physics, and Metaphysics. Before many leading edge concepts became trendy topics, Miller was (and is) in the international front lines of research, experimentation and documentation. Today, Miller writes for Nexus magazine and is a preferred guest on internet radio. In the 21st century Miller is re-emerging at a critical time in humanities evolution where metaphysics and practical survival converge.”

1973 A HOLOGRAPHIC CONCEPT OF REALITY
by RICHARD ALAN MILLER, BURT WEBB, and DARDEN DICKSON
“Abstract: The organization of any biological system is established by a complex electrodynamic field which is, in part, determined by its atomic physiochemical components and which, in part, determines the behavior and orientation of these components. The holographic model of reality emerging from this principle may provide a scientific explanation of psychoenergetic phenomena.”
MANKIND RESEARCH UNLIMITED — Added due to frequency of mention by Dr. RAM (noted above).
SPACE TELESCOPE SCIENCE INSTITUTE (STSI) — Here, you will find the interesting library comprised of several topical matters via a multitude of universities and organizations. The youtube and newsletter materials seem to be seeking and supporting the commercial aspects of the organization.
An impressive library portal — http://www.stsci.edu/institute/smo/library/
UNIVERSITY-PRESS, ARTICLES, PAPER(S) & COLLECTIONS
Observations, theories and math thesis/articles from ‘academia’.
Cornell University Library — An expansive archive, with a large number of subjects is covered. The major subjects are physics, mathematics, computer science, quantitative biology, quantitative finance and statistics — branching in to numerous sub-categories per subject.
“arXiv is an e-print service in the fields of physics, mathematics, computer science, quantitative biology, quantitative finance and statistics. Submissions to arXiv should conform to Cornell University academic standards. arXiv is owned and operated by Cornell University, a private not-for-profit educational institution. arXiv is funded by Cornell University Library, the Simons Foundation and by the member institutions.”
Home: arXiv.org —
Articles provided in PDF, DVI, PostScript and TeX (XeLaTeX) sources
MIT news—I must admit, I didn’t find academic publications (such as provided by Cornell above) on the MIT portal after spending a tiny portion of time. Though the news section looked a little inspiring.
While this section seems a bit too out of place for my liking, there are not many sources for audio-books out there. While you-tube happens to be a wonderful source of audio-books, many of the audio-books up there tend to be from publicly available sources.
“To make all books in the public domain available, for free, in audio format on the internet.”

Currently (Release 1.1) the SSOC consists of more than 2,300 book-length texts (more than 1 million pages) by over 300 authors, and includes many of the texts considered “classics” in Spiritualism and the occult. Every text in the SSOC is supplied, free of charge, in indexed PDF form, allowing it to be electronically stored, searched, printed and converted (to image, HTML or text). The outer, later bound of the corpus is limited by copyright law.”

RUSLAN KHAZARZAR‘S VAST, (A)MAZING LIBRARY.
The Nag Hammadi Library — Edited by James M. Robinson.
The definitive translation of the Gnostic Scriptures complete in one volume.
The University of Science and Philosophy — Walter Bowman Russell; LOOK HIM UP!
“Read and meditate. Re-read, and meditate further.”
“The University of Science and Philosophy , which was formerly The Walter [& Lao] Russell Foundation, was formed for the purpose of giving to the world-family The Message of the Divine Iliad, by Walter Russell, which is a scientific explanation of God’s ways and processes in the construction of His universe, and the Message of a Living Philosophy, by Lao Russell, for illuminating man’s Cosmic way of Life in his long journey of life from the dark to God’s Light.”
Author: Vladimere Megré
from the author’s web-site:
“At the beginning of Perestroika (reforms of the late 1980s) he was the president of the Inter-Regional Association of Siberian Entrepreneurs. In 1994-5 he organized two large-scale trade expeditions with a fleet of river steamers along the River Ob along the route Novosibirsk — Salekhard — Novosibirsk at his own expense. On this trip, an encounter with Anastasia in the Siberian taiga changed his entire life.”
To my understanding, BOOK I of this series is available for free on Kindle.
