I wonder. Is it possible to look thru a list of members?
I propose to change the Cindy's and Marilyn-de-Queiroz's member-number for inside first twenties

You could find any of this information by doing a lot of searches by member number so I didn't see any problem with posting this.

There is no way for a non-sheriff to get this information without a lot of work.

Thanks a lot, Thomas Paul,
very informative insight.
I have strange feeling that name ordering has been started in the first members' hundred and ended there.

REALLY stupid question, but how do I find out my member number? I can't find it on the "my profile" page.
I guess it'll show up in the thread once I post this!

Yep, it is on the left side of the block surrounding your post. Under your name and status.

I was hinting at adding this to the "my profile" page. Since us greenhorns don't have it memorized yet, and it is a field that the site search has, it would be useful to display it on the profile.
It was just a suggestion.

Hi, Neal,
I see the number in your profile!
There are different profile visualizations.
Get to any your post. Click "Profile for Neal Swearer" button (envelope with the question mark).
http://www.javaranch.com
Here it is: your number in profile as you wanted.
Also you may see it in the link, mouse-point to it and see pop-up 36224.
There were earlier proposals to make that "Profile for..." more easily available. Especially "Recent posts"... available only in that kind of profile
So I found it convenient to have at hand a link from that button "Profile to..." in order to avoid making posts just to get to my Recent Posts since the list became unmanageable soon.
Only Sheriffs may make changes. After proving that you stopped seeing inconveniences any more, you may be promoted to Sheriff to continue.

Wrights actually did not make airplane, they made glider (s). It could not neither getup nor land on its own., without external help It was thrown in the air, get new additional 10 m of flight for newspapers and then crashed into the earth. These experiments were not transparent. The external observers were not present and the news were passed to newspapers by Wrights....But they were very good in creating and heating up a legend of Wrights.
I wonder why it started to be called an airplane but not stone, for example?
It is the problem: the History is not about what has happened, it is what is being remembered after. Mainly publicity and propaganda.

Your history is completely wrong. A glider is a plane that does not use an engine. The Wright Brothers' plane did take off from Kitty hawk and travelled in powered flight. How would they be able to keep the press away since they were doing this on public property. The Wright brothers went on to design many other airplanes.

It means that administrators can find out the IP address of each person who posts to the forum.

We would get the IP address of the firewall. it allows us to do things like block people who cause trouble or report troublemakers to their ISP.

Thomas,
do you use MS Visual Studio. NET?
I have difficulties to find tutorials and samples about webdeveloping using C#.NET.
It is all either VB, or VB.NET. What is your advise.
I would like to ask about time of finishing and starting bookpromo.It is even not my initiative, but I sponsor it:

There are many good books about C#.NET. Take a look at http://www.javaranch.com/bunkhouse/NET.jsp for a list of books with reviews.

Thomas Paul,
thanks. I had been there, I really was more interested in MSDN, since I already have it...
I just was surprised that so many tutorials and there is nothing on main strategic effort (tutorial on webdevelopment with the use of C#.NET without going out to Internet, inside MSDN/Help of MS Visio Studio.NET)
Sorry, about airplane. It depends on definition. I understand that airplane is device that autonomously takes off the land, controls its movements autonomously in predictable way (independable on external factors) and lands after. More shortly: the device for transportation (because otherwise a banner may be called an airplane).
I have information from various sources and do not rely on any single one.

And how does a banner take off and land by itself? An airplane is a heavier than air craft that can fly and contains its own method of propulsion (an engine).

Wrights launched their "airplane" only against very strong wind, canceling, otherwise, any attempt.
The minimum required to launch it velocity of wind was much bigger than that needed for a banner to go with the wind.
The airplane did not have even wheels to take off and land. It was launched from monorail. it is really written in your link.
Wrights did not accept any independent public commission to observe their result in order to establish objective criteria to be achieved by mechanism. Wrights made photographs themselves: no presence of reporters was permitted.
It is self-proclaimed unverifiable achievement.

Even a single witness except Wrights has not testified the flight. They had never come out public in any way with it. It is ridiculous story: rather a pattern of self-concocted success.

They had never accepted any from numerous challenges from other inventors. Once more there were hundreds attempts to make the invention observable and it was NEVER admitted.
IT WAS NOT A FAIR PLAY
Nevertheless they succeeded in publicity campaign and patent. The pattern is rather well known.
Why to prove anything if you can pay newspapers?
The banners usually have bigger density than air (though I cannot find any link on this).
It is an interesting pattern: what is more important the quality of result or presentation of it. If you have extraordinary achievement and cannot present it to the others, it is, somehow, not achievement but rather mystery.
But if you do not have achievement but too many are convinced in success, so it is.
