Wasn't trying to bait...

Just seemed very strange that you announce a contest in a post and don't put any date on when it ends and there's no word for weeks. Seemed like maybe you weren't very serious about it.


Guest wrote 4 years 44 weeks ago


No answer here, no answer on Twitter. I wonder if this contest was for real?

Baiting will always work...

We haven't picked the contest winners yet...

Sounds like a great book

It sure wasn't easy logging in to your site with OpenID, but I'm glad I finally managed it. :-)

The way you presented the first 5–6 really made me interested in the book.
Here's my name for the hat of possible winners of a copy of the book: Johan Falk.

My Name In The Hat

Just dropping my name in the hat for the book drawing. I really like your interviews with all of the authors of Drupal books. Hopefully my name will get pulled this time.

Knowing which modules to use for social networking functionality has always been a challenge for me!

Book request

Hello. I enjoyed listening to the podcast, and would love to receive a copy of the book. Thanks!

Guest wrote 4 years 47 weeks ago

Sounds interesting

User relationships is a great module. I don't have this book, yet, but have been considering it. There's so many social networking modules and it's interesting to see how the same subject can be tackled in so many different ways.
