    In the words of a famous man... WOOHOO!

    That is, thanks to Rob and others -- especially Ali -- for sharing their thoughts about Velocity and its alternatives. Very interesting discussions this week.

    Congrats to all Winners!! & thanks Rob for hanging around here and answering all questions. There has'nt been many occasions when I have ended up with some real good knowledge of a tool during a promotion considering the short time frame for which it is conducted.
    But this is definitely one! even though I didnt win the book

    Dirk,
    As an Apress author I get a lot of their new titles at no cost. So I would like to donate my copy to the ranch.

    Sincerely,
    Brian
     
    Yes, of course, and I accept that blame. In fact, i covet that blame. As does this tiny ad:
