The winners are:
<h1>George Brown</h1>
and
<h1>mitch tzonev</h1>
I'm not going to do the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum until later today, so there is still time for that one. Remember, your message has to have substance and you have to have an account name that follows the JavaRanch rules for account names.
Here is how the winner was chosen: I went through the forum and read every message posted on or after the 10th. If the author had a proper name and the message had some substance (not just "thanks" or "enter me in the contest" or "yeah, what he said") then I added the name to a list in a text file.
I ended up with 77 lines in the text file. Some names were repeated several times.
I used this little program to pick a number from 1 to 77:

Fair enough?
Questions? Comments? Should we do this again?

You still have time to go to the OO forum Angela. Ask some questions. Maybe answer some. I won't do that one for a few hours still (gotta run some errands this morning).
