Bill* is saying "So each time my doGet() or doPost() runs, it's in a separate method." I find that a bit confusing. Is that right? The 100/101 presentation is talking about threads, so I thought maybe he meant to say "...in a separate thread."?

* If he is still Bill. I'm not sure the characters are going to have the same names as HFEJB. I saw Annie was now Dianne, but maybe we're just being formal ;-)

He was *thinking* about saying, "... in a separate thread", but he may have had a little too much to drink the night before, so it came out "separate method" which is *technically* not wrong, but the developer formerly known as Bill (he changed his name legally to Kim) is usually more articulate than that. He *really* isn't much of a drinker, but sometimes...

Diane is actually Annie's twin sister. If you look very very closely, you can sometimes tell them apart

cheers,
Kathy

p.s. Dale, when you're bored of software development, you could always get a job as "continuity" expert in Hollywood.
