This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
I believe we should help people here as best we can, however "dumb" their questions might sound to you.
Sorry please ignore this reply its just for testing...
