I love this site. What I think makes it special is that it's down to earth and unpretentious, unlike most Java sites. There is a real community atmosphere. I am working through the Cattle Drive at the moment (just for fun, deciding whether to pay $200!) and finding it very useful as a Java newcomer (converting from C). The forums are excellent. I also love the way you have writers like Tim Darwin and Alan Shalloway contributing.
Anyway, better go before I get too misty-eyed!

Oh it's always nice to feel appreciated
Welcome Martin
A lot of hard work goes into making this place the kind of place you described, this work isn't just done by the bartenders and Sheriffs but by you guys being incredibly helpful to eachother and to us by offering opinions and suggestions on what you'd like to see.
