Am I too late for this reminder, but as long as this page is alive, I am hopeful of my book's arrival. Any ideas, if it is printed or is on the way or if I can get an e-copy. I am at December 9.

I mailed only once when my details were enquired by Javaranch staff. After that I had been waiting and refreshing the winners page.. Today when I saw the status that books are still in print, i was happy. By the way, meanwhile I am relocated, and I would like to re-update my details. What should I do to receive the same(in case it arrives, hope it does.)

they were printed sometime in 30 december 2008 (as stated in the book website).
Usually if you dont get it by 3 months or so, you can send a reminder to book promotion email and they will follow up with the publishers. Some one from the book promotion team will be able to help you

So I understand JavaRanch hasn't update the same on this page.

I am not frequent winner and I did not know that, and I had been just waiting for something to arrive. What can be done now and in what sequence, a wait or an email (from me to book promotion team or from book promotion team to the publishers), or an update about my relocation

I was hoping that someone from the Ranch team would reply here. But in any case you can send the mail to: bookpromotion AT javaranch DOT com with the updated address stating that you havent received the book yet. May be you can continue in the old mail chain- the one in which you had sent your old address and the book promo team had replied back confirming the receipt of your address.

To me it matters because it is the one and only book I have won at JavaRanch, and I mean JavaRanch.

sorry!

We didn't send the e-mail about intervals to follow up back in 2008. The status column is just a guide based on what people tell us. The time to follow up was two and half years ago. There's nothing we can do now. Sorry.
