Rob Richards, the author of the "Pro PHP XML and Web Services" book from APress, has posted this new item on his (new) blog today about a contest he's doing to give away a copy of his book.
Rather than ask you to find some answer to an obscure question, the contest is pretty easy. Simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org before midnight EST on April 30th 2006 telling me why you want a copy and why I should give it to you rather than someone else.
The deadline for submissions is midnight EST on April 30th of 2006, and the winner will be announced on May 7th. Be sure you include a valid email address for him to get back with you if you're a winner. And if you want a tip on getting a bit higher in the ranks, be sure to take heed of his last note:
Keep it short, to the point and I am easily amused.
