No T-Shirt hurling contest this year

We won't be holding the t-shirt hurling contest at JavaOne this year. I should have done all of the prep and announcements a couple of months ago, but I was out sick and mostly unconscious. I've been back at work for a few weeks and it's become clear that the time is too short and life is way too hectic for me to do it properly. There's also the problem that we've got a pile of other contests happening, so JavaOne was getting pretty crowded. These other contests should be fantastic and will allow more people to participate. The early work on them is looking great.
