Software Engineering by Ian Sommerville, what are the differences between International and domestic edition.

I ordered Software Engineering by Ian Sommerville two days ago and it arrived from India today. I was little surprised to see the cover of the book which was not the same which was shown in most of the site. The cover of the book that I received is like this:
I knew this book has multiple ISBN associated with : ISBN-10: 0137035152     ISBN-13: 9780137035151.

However I have compared the content with a regular version of the book:
and found that it is very same page by page. I just wanted other readers of the book to be assured that if they have received a book with same name but a different cover like me, is indeed the same book. I got the book from at a significantly cheaper price. I hope this post will assure those students who are wondering whether this international version book is as same as the regular version or not.

Making a DIY fitted RealD 3d glass (Passive) with a regular frame.

I have been enjoying my LG 47LW5600 3d TV for a year by now. It came with four pair of nice 3d glasses. I also had a few pairs of reald 3d glasses left from the reald 3d movies that I watched in the theater. These glasses works fine with my 3d tv so I used them whenever we had extra guests visiting us. Those reald 3d glasses were very uncomfortable to me as they were too big to wear. This post is about how I customized those glasses for additional comfort.

Here is Step by Step Procedure with the picture to help anyone who wants a pair of 3d glass that nicely fits.

Step 1: Gather the tools and items you need:
1. Scissors
2. small flat end screw driver.
3. A eye glasses frame that fits nicely on you (You could buy this type of frame with glasses from 99 cent store which I did)
4. A pair of realD 3d glasses.

Step 2. remove the two temples (Look at the hinge and you will figure out how to pull them off)

Step 3. Using screw driver pry off the upper parts of the main frame.

Step 4. Take out the plastic filtered lenses.

Step 5. Take out the glass from the selected frame (Which you want to turn into a 3d glasses) and keep it on top of the plastic lens and mark the circumference with a pin.

Step 6. Cut the glass following the outline.

Step 7. Snap the plastic to the frame where the glass used to be.
