Great Thomas! To tell you the truth I am so tired of the "Java Dying" subject that I don't even want to point out to anyone that the topic has been discussion 42zillion times already. How can we advertise "SEARCH" better?

Thomas, I've been wondering how I go about tracking the number of posts I've posted here at the ranch. Are all posts from all forums counted? How many posts equals a ranch hand? Does 100 'Duh' posts in M.D. go towards your total? Thanks for any info here, Rick
Rick, you have 25 posts. The way to find this out is: 1) find one of your posts 2) locate the little icon next to the date/time stamp that looks like a face with a question mark 3) click on it I think you need 35 posts to be a RanchHand. And yes every post is counted.

I generally get the impression most people don't take the time to do a quick search before posting.
Yeah but it can still be helpful. Then instead of having to restate what's already been said a zillion times or pointing them to a thread (which unless you've memorized it you'd have to look up), you could post the URL for the FAQ. Much easier if you ask me.
