Subject Re: [FRIDAY] YA Stuts In Action Triva Quiz
Date Fri, 26 Sep 2003 19:46:18 GMT
Believe it or not, I'm just now closing the contest that ended Saturday, 
September 14, 2003, 23:59:59. Perhaps all the yapping about the timezone 
sent me off me into one of my own =:)

The question was:

 >In reviewing a very fine book on programming, who was quoted to say:
 > "The compiler should stop anyone implementing Runnable
 >  who hasn't read this book."

I had several good responses that mentioned Martin Fowler, but then went 
and cited the wrong book (usually one of his). Other people mentioned a 
(similar) book but didn't mention Martin. The best correct response was 
given by Harsha Sanjeewa:

"Martin Fowler on Doug Lea's Concurrent Programming in Java: Design 
Principles and Patterns"

A signed copy of Struts in Action is also going to Shane Miggens for 
suggesting this hard-to-google quote.


There are many answers to this question, but only one is the infamous 
quote I have in mind:

"Open source developers don't make backups, they ..."

PLEASE be sure to reply to

Answers will be summarized to the list, so feel free to try and amuse us =:)

The winner will be selected at random (or at least arbitrarily) from the
correct responses. [The correct response being the one I expected =:)]

The contest will run until Friday, October 3, 2003, 23:59:59, so
everyone has a chance to participate.

The lucky winner selected from the correct responses will receive a
signed copy of Struts in Action.

PLEASE be sure to reply to

Thanks to Arunkumar for suggesting this quote! In appreciation,
Arun will be also be receiving a signed copy of Struts in Action.

If you have an interesting science fiction or computer science quote
