Hi Paul,
I've browsed around the Range quit a bit lately and have noticed that there is a LOT of knowledge here. But heck my phone bill will bankrupt me if I went trough all this trying to gather all the knowledge for my-self i.e. education. Is there no way we can download the postings and read it offline?
Another question how do we contact one of the "elite" i.e. sherrif bartender. I'm want to ask Frank Carver a question about a response that he gave to a topic of his way back (21 st Jan 2000). Know I know Frank moderates "Servlets & JSP's" and "Moderators Only", the question I have for him has nothing to do with "servlets or JSP's" and as such does not belong there and the other one, well
I see that Frank is pretty active and might see my question or might be altered to its existence by the moderator of the forum I post it in.
But what is the preferred way to contact an "elite" directly execept for e-mail?

In general, the best thing to do is not to worry who answers a question. Ask it in the right forum, and accept all replies gracefully. A good and useful reply can come from anyone.
In the particular case of me I am indeed "pretty active", and a question in any of the forums except the exam-specific ones will almost certainly catch my attention. I have seen your other question, of course, and replied to it, but you need not have particularly directed it at me. There are a large number of experienced and skilled Java practitioners here, and many of them are happy to answer any polite and comprehensible question.
Most of us do not reply to Java questions via email, except sometimes with a request to post the question on Java Ranch instead. If you post a question here, it will be seen by hundereds, maybe thousands of visitors, any of who might be willing and able to answer it. And the replies will also be seen by as many people, and may answer questions of theirs before they even ask them. So a question is always better posted in the appropriate forum here than sent by email.
I hope you continue to get a lot from JavaRanch, and will help by answering other peoples questions yourself as soon as you feel ready to do so.
