Being an Apress Author, a couple of days back I got a mail that talked about Apress’ latest book promotion. Create a five-up/five-down crossword puzzle incorporating ten different Apress and friends of ED author last names and you could win a Sony Playstation. Cool!
Apress registered user group members who reside in the United States
and Canada can participate in the contest. Apress authors can’t
participate. However I did toy with a few crossword tips that could get
me my last name. Oak is a tree, Java’s original name was Oak…
While on the subject of crosswords, I explored a little more about crosword creation and found some interesting facts like :
first crossword was created by newspaperman Arthur Wynn in 1913. It is
amazing that crosswords have spread across the globe in such a short
- People who write conventional crosswords are called constructors.
Anyway, as this doesn’t have much to do with java, I will leave it here.
