Li Yang
Let here it for our four lucky winners! Yeeehaaa!!!
Here is how the winners were chosen: I went through the forum and read EVERY message posted on or after the 5th. If the author had a proper name and the message had some substance (not just "thanks" or "enter me in the contest" or "yeah, what he said") then I added the name to a list in a text file.
I ended up with 228 lines in the text file. Some names were repeated several times. I used this little program to pick a number from 1 to 228:
import java.util.* ;
public class Pick
public static void main( String[] args )
int numPicks = Integer.parseInt( args[0] );
Random r = new Random();
for( int i = 0 ; i < 10 ; i++ )
System.out.println( r.nextInt( numPicks ) + 1 );
Fair enough?
Thanks to the good folks at Addison-Wesley ( ) for the books!
The next big book giveaway is going to be on December 12. We will be giving away four XP books. The winners will each have a choice between "Planning Extreme Programming (The XP Series)" and "Extreme Programming Installed(The XP Series)".
See you soon partner!
