Subject [FRIDAY] YA Stuts In Action / JUnit in Action Trivia Quiz
Date Sat, 07 Feb 2004 16:04:10 GMT
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 (Chekov)

*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

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!)
