    To Celebrate That Cup, We're Letting the Game Dictate the Price!

    In a few days, we're giving away one of our most popular books. Which book will it be? Only time will tell.

    Check out the details here: http://www.sitepoint.com/launch/thiscup

    To celebrate This Cup (which has nothing to do with "that" Cup thatís being played in South Africa at the moment), we're having a HUGE digital book sale.

    There are massive discounts up for grabs, (save 30% right now!) and there's a FREE best selling book at the end that you don't want to miss...

    If you're considering adding a SitePoint digital book to your library, now's the time to act.

    Yeah Stomme, ours seems to be doing rather well. At least according to the unbearable screaming from outside my home office.

    I have to say I really like the idea and the prices are great. Good one!

    Why, they actually give a cup for playing hockey?

    Yes, and you can't win it by falling over the most.

    Love this idea though, I finally have a reason to care who wins......

    Uh oh, that was a different psychic octopus!

    The one who's always correct says Spain beats NL : (

    Looks like jQuery book will be the free book.

    Apparently he has had 'death threats' against him from some disgruntled fans. I suppose either-way it will still be a good addition to the book collection.

    "stroopwafel"
    It's like a luchtwaffel, which is an edible German flying saucer, except better suited to coffee. Certainly not football. Or sitepoint books.

    *edit stroomwaffel... sounds interesting. An electric waffle?

    When can we expect the prices to update?

    The graphic says that jQuery has won the final and is free, but when I click on Buy Me Now it's trying to charge me $19.95.

    )c:

    Thanks.
