Your "Too late..." comment strikes me as the kind of thing that I would normally appreciate (if I could wrap my mind around it). I've returned to it afresh, with a cup of coffee in hand. Unfortunately, so far, it remains beyond my grasp.
While that comment was directed rather squarely at steveL, a sort of gentle nudge in a certain direction, writ in neon and parked on his doorstep, if you will; since you asked I offer a couple of hints.
His stated intended message: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Dc6Pre77AY, note the rather distinctly optimistic tenor.
His stated unintended message: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YKUOB8MN4Kc, note that the tenor is... rather different.
Also, just to drag Terry Pratchett into this: https://christwise.wordpress.com/2011/11/22/footnotes-ire-and-other-thoughts-of-the-week/, well, not just to drag him into this, but also to poke just that little bit of additional fun at footnotes.[1]

Um. The K&R is essential for C, and Stroustrup's Annotated Reference for C++. Some of those others I have too, not sure exactly how relevant they all are now.

The ones written more than a decade ago may be out-of-date on a lot of important changes. Like the init system, I'm pretty sure nothing uses the init system from that far back, and even if the same system is used they've all migrated.

That's not strictly related to programming end-user apps but if you're doing system programming it's entirely relevant.
Jeez. No, the ones I cited are all relevant.

C++.. lul.

If you know what you're talking about, by all means show how the books I cited are of no use.

OFC that would require you to have read them.

LOL.
I'm sticking that in the bot, when I finally get back to IRC.
