I talked to my wife today about letting JavaRanch fans buy loot. We figure that $20 would cover the shipping plus the expense of each item (tote bag, mug, a couple of pens and a "debugging tool"). But she says she doesn't want to be a slave to this JavaRanch thing and I don't have time to go to the post office. So the deal we struck was that if you send her a check (in US funds drawn on a US bank) she'll send you a package and she gets to keep all the money over the cost of the postage. This seems okay to me since the idea is to get this stuff into the hands of people that like JavaRanch. So this is sort of like this is a free product and shipping and handling is $20.
In fact, if you meet me in person and I have loot with me, just metnion that you've been to JavaRanch and I'll give you loot!
So! Send your check for $20 to
<pre>
The lovely and charming Brenda Wheaton
17937 E Amherst Ave
Aurora, CO 80013
</pre>
Be sure to specify that the check is for JavaRanch loot, or else she might think it's just a gift.
If you are outside the U.S., better send an extra ten bucks. If you can't do the check with US funds on a US bank, you need to do a postal money order in US funds.

Shoot! I've heard that you were up at the Colorado Software Summit. If that's true, and I had read this post before the Summit, I would have been asking everyone where I could find you!
Guess I'll have to do the send a check through the mail thing. Luckily, I live in Aurora (actually Centennial, I guess) so the postage shouldn't be too much.

Oooops!
I gave away the last of the loot at the summit. So I guess this offer is over. I shoulda dug up this old message and said so. If you had sent a check, you would have been the first.

There is a web site that allows you to design a t-shirt, coffee mug and mouse pad and they handle all the work. You charge whatever you want and they give you all the money over there base price. I use them for my site and it seems to work OK.

Awww, shucks, but now I want some loot, too. Any prediction on when more loot may come your way, Paul?

I know that we are currently tinkering with shirts that have the moose embroidered on them along with "JavaRanch.com"
Will keep you posted.

Rather than T-shirts, we were looking into button down shirts. But if we get this going, I suppose we could put this on damn near anything.
