Subject Re: [FRIDAY] YA Stuts In Action / JUnit in Action Trivia Quiz
Date Sat, 07 Feb 2004 19:15:33 GMT
Hi Ted,

it's not gone stale, the questions are just getting hard! The best bit 
is waiting to see how long it will be before someone posts the answer to 
the list! And then seeing what their reaction is once they realise what 
they did!

Actually Brian Higdon's answer (to try to 'recall' his mail) was a bit 
of a disappointment. Are you still out there Brian? Gotta have a 
grovelling apology!

Actually I have more fun trying to find something that is a good Quiz 
but hard to google, because generally I don't have a clue what the 
answers to your quizzes are - at least for 15 minutes before someone 
posts the answer. :)

Adam

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 :)]
