Hi,
I'm new here and it's the second time I see that you send free copy of books. That's just great.
I saw the book promotion page but I don't really understand how to be registred for the random selection. Is everybody posting on the beginner forum automatically registred ?
Thx

It was a great experience asking questions at Javaranch, though javaranch handles a lot of forums but there are only few which are active one and this one is real hot and it becomes more while there is a promotion..
Picking up the 4 luck persons randomly is a great idea and leave no room for any grutches. I have a suggestions if you could add two more copies(ofcourse deducting from these four will be of no use) to the best question and answer should be rewarded.. :roll:
regards,
Arun

Yeah - well then we end up bickering about which one is "best". WAAAAAY to much stress involved in that.
The only alternative would be to allow Carl to select the "best" by himself, and we REALLY would not want to give Carl that much power . He is difficult enough to keep a handle on as it is .

hmmm . . . Hey CARL!!!

Of course you could just send your name and mailing address to Carl@javaranch.com and a little reminder that you were one of the winners. If you are international he will also need a phone number (dratted shipping companies are SO picky).
What with the new server being implemented last week-end, I would expect that Carl was just slightly swamped and hasn't gotten around to it yet.
