Congratulations are due to Angela Poynton, who has now submitted more than 1000 messages to the Java Ranch Big Moose Saloon. She joins Paul Wheaton, Ajith Kallambella, Frank Carver, Jim Yingst, Tony Alicea, maha anna, Cindy Glass, Carl Trusiakand Jane Griscti - the real "heavy hitters" of the Ranch.
Well done Angela, it takes a lot to get this far, and I'm sure we all appreciate your efforts and the help you've given to so many people.

I also issue a similar congratulation message for anyone who reaches the dizzy heights of 2000 messages. Only Paul Wheaton, Ajith Kalambella, and I have got there so far, so that should be your next goal ...

So Frank are you just very observant or do you have a secret way of knowing who has almost 1000 / 2000 posts?

Sad as it may seem, I just run a user find for all users over 800 posts using the control panel from time to time, and keep an eye on anyone who is near the limit.

oh ... I hadn't even noticed that functionality ... and here's me thinking you check everyone's profile from time to time! I suppose that would seem even sadder.

Course Angela, you have always been my hero . I think it strange that you don't get brownie points for all the behind the scenes work that you guys do. Gives me a guilt complex . How do you DO it all???

ahh it's nothing!!
Technically i don't really do all that much anymore .. just delegate work to others ... have you seen how the Bunkhouse Team has grown? I do very little actual work here anymore ... I'm just the ideas person .. of course many other contribute ideas too .. I just decide if they get used The power of the Sheriff
I still spend way too much time here though!
When I met up with George Brown the other day we were discussing that if every bartender / sheriff at javaranch actually got together to form a software development company we'd be fantastic!! It still amazes me that such an amazing site as this is put together but a bunch of people who work remotely from all over the world in their spare time!

Way to go Angela. You were the one who emailed me asking me to become a bartendar, so I see you as kind of my mentor or something I think I am getting close to 1000 also, maybe soon.
