First a huge thank you to Hans for being here this week. I hope you will come back when the fourth edition of your book comes out. Or perhaps you can come back to discuss your JSF book which is coming out shortly. The winners are: Jeroen Wenting Al Kaiser Raul Martinez Lasse Koskela Congratulations to all our winners. Please send me your snail mail address and I will see that the book gets sent out to you. Meanwhile, I have some bad news. Next week's promotion has been cancelled as the author has an emergency situation that prevents him from being with us. I am trying to schedule another promotion but as of now it appears that we will not be having a promotion next week.

Congratulations to all winners and I do want to thank Mr.Bergsten for being here, answering almost all of our queries...

For more info, that thread might be able to explain this... Thanks...
Hallelujah! The book is certainly of great help -- I decided not to participate the SCWCD beta partly because I didn't feel like printing out the specification to learn the 2.0 stuff... Now I don't need to
