The last contest was won by Rickard Olsson from Swede who
posted me a nice email in reply:

"I've been following your site almost since it started and I
look it up a couple of times a week to see if something new
has happened. So today at work I browsed the CYA, while my
project was compiling I might add ;-), and I found that the
latest winner spelled his name the same way as I do. Could
it be me? I had to wait until I was home to look in my mail
mailbox. And there they were. One mail from CYA and one
from VisualASP Components. THANK YOU!

I like CYA because of the personal touch and your aim to
make the maintenance of the site as easy as possible. And
one thing that I could identify myself with is that You
seems to be a guy that has a social life too and some other
hobbies not evolving around computers.

The work on CYA is impressive and in beginning of the era
of CYA I wondered if you got any sleep at all. New
functions almost every day! Myself I'm happy if I can sneek
in one hour computer work some night a week when my wife
and two kids, 2 and 5,  finally are asleep.

Keep up the good work with CYA and I'll be a fan forever.

Rickard :-D"

Thanks Rickard. CYA has truly been a great experience, and I
love that I can give prizes now as a reward. CYA.NET is
about to start the same evolution, online and in public!

Don't worry, I'll let you guys know when to look.


REMEMBER - the contest is now monthly. To re-synch, this
contest will run until the end of February.

The main prize is the awesome Dundas Chart component
a $950 value!

It is truly an amazing tool. Check out the sample 3D

This contests book is a brand new one from Steven Smith of - I've been looking forward to this
book for some time. It was written just as I would write a
book - learning by example is my favorite method.

15 Jan

- It's .NET day!! Microsoft just released the official .NET
Framework SDK[1]. This is the day I've been anticipating
for a long time - now I can install it on my nice new
machine. I hadn't wanted to install the beta release on a
new computer, for obvious reasons. Now get over to MSDN
and get that 131mb download!



18 Jan

- When Ben Hitchcock sent me a much modified and improved
version of my Database Administration Tool[1] today it got
me thinking about my almost non-existent license[2] again.

I'd be very interested to hear your opinions on GPL and
other public domain licenses, and whether my free code[3]
should use one. I certainly don't mind giving it away
for free and others using it, but I don't want other
sites publishing my code as their own. But what about
modified code? Please, let me know your thoughts.



20 Jan

- Rickard Olsson from Sweden just won the latest contest
and the next one is underway! This one is the best yet,
with $1,000 worth of prizes!

Please note that this contest is now drawn monthly, not
bi-weekly. To get in sync this contest will run until the
end of February. With such a valuable prize I hope no-one
will mind!


21 Jan

- <NotASP> I don't know if you remember me mentioning[1] a long time ago, but it was a fascinating
site by a larger-than-life German entrepreneur. Today it
changed into something even more outrageous! You have to
see Kim Schmitz' site to believe it...</NotASP>



22 Jan

- Please don't forget to join me at the Atlanta ASP User
Group meeting next Tuesday, January 29th at 6pm.

Stuart Dickerson will be talking on "Creating Web Services
Using Visual Studio.NET".

This is the first meeting at the new location, so be sure
to check the details on the Atlanta ASP User Group
