Hi,
I'm not sure if this Flies in the Face of Javaranch rules and I'lll issue an Immediate Reversal if so. But if anyone who wins already has the book, or if you just want to get something different, I'd be happy to substitute anything $20 or under from www.cafepress.com/datingpatterns
The shirt "I Implement Half Bad Boy Plus Protocol" has been very popular. ;>

Oh, like you're going to be a winner with a measly 10 or 20 posts? ;>

Why this sudden change of heart to give shirts and mugs instead of books? :roll:

Oh, it's just a choice. I'm certainly not going to be forcing the tshirts on anyone. It's just that the "I Implement Half Bad Boy Plus Protocol" and "Dating Design Patterns Reference Implementation Team" tshirts have been very popular.
A lot of other authors on Javaranch might also have provided tshirts or books, but I don't think there are a lot of "I Implement Core J2EE Patterns" or "MVC Rules!" tshirts out there.

I like the way you write. Yopu should be writing more books.

Thanks! I wasn't in line for the Techy Genius Brain since somebody pushed me into the Weird Ideas line ('dating design patterns? why not?!') so I'm workin' with what I got. ;>
