We are giving away four copies of "Java Collections", and the Author, John Zukowski, is on-line! See our Book Giveaway Page for details. You have to contribute something to this forum to be entered in the drawing. Simply replying to this message with "Enter me" or any thing similar will not get your name in the hat. [OK, read the previous sentence again, people. Posting "Enter me" will NOT help you. DON'T DO IT. - added by Jim Y] Good Luck! [This message has been edited by Jim Yingst (edited May 08, 2001).]

So , go in the forum. Start the victory march. I hope this is helpful. Your Friendly Bartender Shailesh.
GUYS!!! Carl said that doing this WOULD NOT COUNT. They throw away all the "Enter Me" posts. So DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME!! (OK so octavyn, I expect you are doing it just to be obnoxious , but the rest of them just can't read.) [This message has been edited by Cindy Glass (edited May 08, 2001).]
"JavaRanch, where the deer and the Certified play" - David O'Meara
OK, I'll bite... Let's have a debate: If you desire a thread-save List, who thinks it is better to use a Vector (an old Collections class that implements a List and is thread-safe) or to create "synchronized" List using the Collections.synchronizedList(List) method? -Bryan
OK, I deleted a bunch of "Enter me" posts from some of the more... intellectually challenged ranchers, and added a small note to the beginning of the thread. I know that some of the posts were from people who knew better and were joking, which is fine - but from my perspective it's easier to remove the source of confusion. Sorry Octavyn - I actually thought it was funny too, but if left unchecked these things just grow and grow. Hmmm... maybe we should start a new thread that says "anyone who posts 'me too' in this thread will be permanently banned from JavaRanch". Then post a couple of followups saying "me too" (using aliases), and watch to see how many people take the bait. Then act accordingly. The scary thing is that some of these people might have cars, and be on the road the same time I am.

Well, if you consider getting a book from some guy named "Zukowski" to be "winning". You can't trust those guys with names at the end of the alphabet - they're so used to being overlooked, they'll say anything to get some attention.
