Hi, Carl I was expecting another forum with BooksGiveAway this week.But I think there is no offer this week. I have not been a lucky even a single time.I think the criteria for choosing winners should be "Chits" only.The winner should not depend upon the no. of postings.The disadvantage with this practice is that for that week only people will flood with the postings.Other times they would not care to visit it again. Is this criteria meant so that people should visit all the forums instead of concentrating on one like I do for "Servlets And JSP"?If it really is then it is a welcome one.
With JavaOne looming, Authors and Publishers are pretty tied up. The idea is to get the discussion in the area that is best covered by the book. You're sure the Author has the knowledge you may need. Yes, people post just to try and get the books but, you'll see quite a few where they really need help on the topic and are fairly assured they'll get it.
