Win A Book!

Monday, June 20, 2005

The fine people at Packt Publishing are letting me giveaway their books in a contest. They have books by yours truly, on DotNetNuke, BPEL, and a variety of other topics outside of .NET.

My first thought was to have contestants answer 3 .NET trivia questions, but this runs the risk of having some clever know-at-all from Microsoft point out a subtle flaw in the question and invalidating the entire contest. Instead, I decided to play it safe and ask three questions about content on this blog (don’t worry – I’ve provided hints to make it point-and-click easy).

Here are the basic rules:
Send answers for the questions listed below to contest@OdeToCode.com. Three winners will be selected at random on July 5th from entries with correct answers. Entries must be in before midnight (UTC) on July 4th. Winners will be announced here on July 6th.

I'll have Packt ship each winner one book of their choice from the Packt stable! Whoohoo!

Questions

1. What is the #3 reason I wanted to see Microsoft buy Disney?
2. What do I think is #1 in the 'best of' list from the .NET 1.1 years?
3. What do I consider stage #4 in the '5 stages of mocking'?

Hints

The 5 Stages Of Mocking
If Microsoft Would Buy Disney
The Best Of The .NET 1.x Years

Spread the word!

Update: Your email will not be given out to anyone - ever! I don't like spam any more than you do...

I'm not sure why, Hermann, but I'll ask the ISP. If anyone has problems feel free to use the &quot;Contact&quot; link in the upper left.
