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!

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.)

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?

According to the statistics I've seen, Vector is faster because it avoids a method wrapper.

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.
 
Be reasonable. You can't destroy everything. Where would you sit? How would you read a tiny ad?
