    and that is precisely my psychological worry

    on the other hand, if plan b keeps going the way it is, I'll retire altogether from IT in two years time and work in the plan b full time - and then the decision will be easy

    If they are anything like the books i had for uni they are now so out of date as to be worthless.
    Chances are they won't take them. Stick them in re-cycling. If the bin-men reject them, you know where you stand.

    You have psychological issues. Nothing to do with technical books.
