This week's book giveaway is in the General Computing forum. We're giving away four copies of Arduino in Action and have Martin Evans, Joshua Noble, and Jordan Hochenbaum on-line! See this thread for details.
Congratulations are due to Johannes de Jong, who has now submitted more than 1000 messages to the Java Ranch Big Moose Saloon. he joins the real "heavy hitters" of the Ranch. Well done Johannes, it takes a lot to get this far, and I'm sure we all appreciate your efforts and the help you've given to so many people.
