Default Free books for top January 2009 p2p.wrox.com members

Thanks everyone for your participation in the forums. To recognize our most helpful members, we’re going to give away a few books every month. The recipients are chosen by the Wrox staff. Staff, authors, and technical editors are excluded and all awards are at our discretion.
  • Top helpful members: Old Pedant, Martin Honnen, mmcdonal, alliancejhall, and aspless. (Martin actually tech edited for us so long ago, it’s great to see him still involved in the forums!)
  • Top new member/reader: Rachel – everyone can learn from Rachel’s questions and Rachel is a good model of how to ask questions in a way that makes other people want to answer
  • New members of the Friends of Wrox user group: alliancejhall, mrame, neal,
Please email me through the forums with your shipping address (and phone number if you are outside the US) and your choice of any Wrox book (no box sets, sorry) and I’ll ship it to you gratis. Thanks for your participation!

As always, thanks to Imar, dparsons, Lee Dumond, mhkay, joefawcett our most regular authors and tech editors without whom there would be almost no answers in these forums. And thanks to our newest active author, reto for his recent welcomed contributions.

Everyone else: if you want to earn a free book next month, post helpful answers. We’ll pick different members next month.

I am really happy to see Rachel getting a book. She is really working hard at it and "gets" how to ask good questions. She reminds me so much of myself back in the beginning. I'll bet others would say likewise.

P.S. Since (unlike the others) I am still listed on the forums as a "Friend of Wrox", does that mean I can get a free book too?

Congratulations! Thanks for all your great submissions without which I would still be stuck... and probably out of a job.

Congratulations to everyone (including me ). And thanks for the kind words Lee & Jim.

And Imar was so very helpful in getting me through my first website. His book is great for newbies like me. You're the best Imar!

What a nice surprise.
