Dude -- look at you! Apparently I'm not the only one...

Hmmm. 5025 + 6014 = 11039 . That's getting into Jim and Tom territory. Maybe we should team up!

Well, if you would quit posting on that Jess Mailing list and concentrate more on Javaranch, maybe you would be closer to that 11000 mark. Being a god and all, can't you post in more than one place at the same time?

Yeah... but he's racked those up since July 2001. You, Mr. EFH -- have only been at it since July 2003!!!

Congrats -- I'm so glad that after you did that Book promo that you stuck around!

Actually, everyone who's posted prior to me is a wonderful addition to the ranch. Skimming down through this thread, every name is one i recognize as having helped me more times than i can count...

and there are dozens of others as well, but prior to my post, this thread is a "who's who" of the javaranch.

Congrats, and THANKS, to ALL of you!!!

A chicken coup?

OK, so this joke only works onscreen. Don't read it out loud.

Tom: Getting Ernest has been a coup for JavaRanch.

I still cannot believe we got him. Maybe this is just our collective dream.

Congratulations, Ernest!
