Dear Santa, I don't mean to sound ungrateful for the gifts that I've received over the years. The toy train set was great in 1976. My Atari 2600 was awesome in 1980. And who could forget the subscriptions to Playboy, Penthouse, Hustler, Oui, and Reader's Digest. Good times. But lately man: the presents have kind of sucked. 2006, I got a tie. A freakin' tie? I'm a programmer. 2007 was the month's supply of Rogaine. I understand the motivation there, but couldn't you have tested that on a bald elf first? Doesn't work. This year I'm asking for an early gift. Luis and Matt are offering the gift of free ColdBox training. If you could lend a hand and make that happen, I'll overlook the debacle of 2006's gift (really? A book on ASP.NET?), and that one year I saw you kissing my mom.
The winner of ColdBox training is: Conrad Davis!!
We did a raffle and the following are the results:
1) Conrad Davis (Winner)
2) Charlie Griefer (Runner Up)
3) Dave Schuck (2nd Runner Up) I have emailed all three participants as Conrad has the first bid for the training. If he does not answer that he will be going by Tomorrow at 5PM pacific, then the winner becomes runner up 2, Charlie Griefer. If charlie does not answer by Saturday at 5PM pacific, then Dave Shuck becomes the winner. Congratulations Conrad, you are a proud owner of ColdBox Training for CBOX:101 this October 4-5th in Dallas, Texas
