[PLUG] Suggestions for a 'computer science' textbook...

Dear PLUG gang,

A colleague here is teaching several bioinformatic courses, and asked me if I knew of any 'computer science' textbooks he could recommend to his students. Since I never learned any computer stuff in a 'formal' environment, I have no idea. Do you have any suggestions? He wants something that covers the basics (hardware, software, a bit of programming 'philosophy', maybe something that also touches databases, etc.). I know that one would usually use specific books/sources for each topic, but it's likely that there is a textbook out there that has a bit of everything bundled-up.
