Here is my entry for your contest...

1. Tenser, said the Tensor. Tenser, said the Tensor. Tension, apprehension,
and dissension have begun. RIFF.


2. I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that
brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass
over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye
to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will

Subject: [FRIDAY] YA Stuts In Action / JUnit in Action Trivia Quiz

Last time, we asked contestants to name for a popular science fiction series
that featured a psi cop named after a science fiction author 

1 The series (Babylon 5)

2 The character (Alfred Bester)

3 The actor who played the character (Walter Koenig)

4 The character this actor played in another famous science fiction series

*OR* to list the twelve core practices of Extreme Programming.


Turn out was low for this contest, so either the questions were hard, or
this bit is getting stale :) 

Anyway, last week's winner is: 


(Melissa, please send your surface mail address to, and
indicate whether you would like JUnit in Action or Struts in Action)



To play, correctly answer  -- directly to me at -- one or
both of these questions.

In The Demolished Man by Alfred Bester, a character used a jingle to help
keep himself from being "scanned". 

  1 The first word of the chant is "Tenser". How does the rest of it go?

In Dune by Frank Herbert, a character used a litany to help him through a
time of stress.

  2 The first word of the chant is "Fear". How does the rest of it go?


  + Name your two favorite changes, improvements, or new additions to the
Struts Nightly Build since 1.1 was released. Hint:
<>. One more
addition, currently in progress, is to add a "module" parameters to several
tags to allow linking between modules. [Yes, 1.2.0 will be along shortly :)]


Contestants sending -- directly to me at -- correct
answers to the to the bonus question *OR* the SF question to me will be
eligible for the next drawing. (the correct answers being the ones I
expect). Prior winners excluded (but feel free to play anyway).

The contest will run until Thursday, January 15, 2004, 23:59:59, so everyone
has a chance to participate.

The lucky winner selected from the correct responses will receive their
choice of either a signed copy of Struts in Action *OR* JUnit in Action.

(Signed only by me, I'm afraid, my co-authors are scattered across the globe
-- gotta love the Internet!)

If you have an interesting science fiction or computer science question that
is hard, or at least fun, to google, please send it to me. The first to
suggest a question that we use also wins!
