And the Winners are … | February 14, 2006
Firstly I’d like to thank everybody who entered my big book give-away. I was bowled over by the number of entries, and picking a winner from the plethora of smart, funny and sometime quite scary comments was extremely difficult. However after much deliberation the first FREE copy of CSS Mastery has to go to Chris, for his straightforward yet funny wobbly table leg comment. Sometimes the best gags are the simplest (and oldest)!
I want a copy of CSS Mastery: Advanced Web Standards Solutions because … My desk is all wobbly and I need something to help prop it up.
The second FREE copy goes to Simon for the following whimsical and inventive comment.
I want a copy of CSS Mastery: Advanced Web Standards Solutions because … my websites have more tables than a furniture shop, more fonts than the church of England, and more styles than a walk in the country.
The runner up, who unfortunately wins nothing but a warm cosy glow for being singled out, goes to Boppyer for this smart and amusing comment.
<TD>, or <TD>: that is the question:
Whether ‘tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The <SPAN>’s and <TR>’s of outrageous fortune,
Or to take <DIV>’s against a sea of <TABLE>’s,
And by opposing end them?
And I think a special mention should go to Rhyddian Pugh for a very clever anagram. Props to you!
I want a copy of CSS Mastery: Advanced Web Standards Solutions because … <anagram>Bad and obsolescent code is a scary way - I’d want a fun, vast, super-css tome<anagram />
For all those who missed out on a FREE copy, I’ll be giving away a few freebies at SXSWi and @media 2006, or you could simply buy a copy from Amazon. If you grab a copy now, you’ll be in with a chance of wining an even better prize in the next couple of weeks. Keep you eyes glued to my RSS feed for details of this exciting new competition.
