This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
Bashers and "constructive critics", US citizens and not: Regardless of your opinion of the US, it was tragic and senseless and in no way justified that my friend Kit Farragher was killed when she was in New York on September 11th for Java training. http://missing.cnn.com/search.asp?letters=f And in case it makes more of an impact, this also means there's one less beautiful single female Java programmer in the world. Take a look at the faces of the thousands of people killed September 11th, before you cast any more stones.
Solveig, I am very sorry about your loss. It's a very sad thing to look at all those smiling faces and realize they're not here anymore.

Thanks for your replies. I played Ultimate with Kit for a couple seasons, so we weren't extremely close, but I liked her, a friend of mine at Sun dated her, and I feel terrible for her sisters and brother and parents. All the criticism of the US in this tragedy is like talking about a rape victim who was drinking and wearing a tight skirt. So, well, what do we expect?
