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.
If you mean to say that you experienced difficulties connecting to http://java.sun.com yesterday, I can confirm that for about five minutes yesterday morning, I couldn't connect to Sun's website. It seems to be working fine right now.
