Want to Win a Copy of Professional Enterprise .NET?

Due to some confusion and delays at the publisher, I ended up with two review copies of Professional Enterprise .NET by Jon Arking and Scott Millett, the book I recently reviewed on this web site.

I'll be giving one of the copies away for free to a reader of my site. Well, free.... not entirely. You can win a copy by sending me a developer story that explains why you need a book about Enterprise development. Do you have a story about an application you designed some years ago which is now no longer maintainable? Or do you have a colleague that screws things up so bad they need a copy of this book? Do you have other horror stories about ugly designs and impossible code that could have been solved with a proper, enterprise oriented architecture??

Send me your story through my contact page (plain text only, no HTML; if you want to send HTML, contact me first and then send in your story by e-mail) before January 1st 2010. I'll pick the most funny, great, or depressing story and reward it with the book. I'll announce the winner in the first week of January and publish the story along with the announcement. If you've won, I'll contact you so we can work out the details with regards to your shipping address.
