I would never know that I hit 7000 if it weren't for this thread. Thanks guys. I will now dedicate my life to trying to say "cool bananas" as often as I can.
As for the story of the beginning of JavaRanch, I know that Marilyn has it thoroughly documented somewhere. Here it is: http://www.javaranch.com/history.jsp
The main thing I remember about the merger was spending a couple of months trying to get Kathy to cough up that floppy disk with all the old JavaRanch content. She was just waaaaay too busy. I ended up researching Golden, Colorado and setting up a breakfast meeting there with all of her family and all of my family.
And then there was the fiasco in going to a bank that was open on Saturday to get a notary to sign the forum that the internic needed to transfer ownership of the domain. After all of my careful research, I learned at the bank that yes, it's $2 for the notary service, but that's only for people who have an account at that bank. Forget that there is nobody else in the bank and these people are bored out of their minds. So I proceeded to open an account ...
January 15th, 2000 was a very busy day ...

By that time, I hope JavaRanch has a geek-recovery room with a chill-out area.

Congratulations, Paul
The Moose can make appearences for parties, but it would be an empty gesture since Paul is the bookings manager...
