>That's right, Amos and I have just gotten done adding all kinds of new

>Also, sometime really soon, we will be making a 2.3 alpha release.  This

>So, instead of reading the book over again for the N to the Nth time

>The *first* person to point out an incorrect usage of the term

>book signed by Amos and myself.  If you are the second person to point
>out the same error, sorry, you're out of luck, but *keep reading*
>because you may find another!  For each unique "method" error found in the

>And don't just stick to Chapter 8 (although that's probably the best

>To keep everything fair, you must report your findings to the community

>Here are some sample right and wrong sentences to give you an idea, just
>because a sentence contains the word "method", doesn't make it wrong:
>
>  "DTML Methods are smelly."  (Right)
>
>  "By using DTML, Python, Perl or other kinds of methods, you can
>  script the web." (Wrong)
>
>  "Python Methods rock!"  (Wrong)
>
>  "You can call *fooBar* through the web like any other kind of
>  method". (Wrong, should be "object", tricky! The judgest make the call
>  on these kinds of errors)
>
>  "The Python code in your External Method must be in the Foo module."
>  (Right, External Methods still exist)
>
>Get the idea?  
>
>The O'Reilly community reviewers (the "judges") and employees of
>Digital Creations are not elligible in this contest, sorry guys, you
>already get free books. ;)
>
>So without further a-do here's the URL.  Have fun!
