Looks like you've recently crossed the threshold yourself.
Congrats

Indeed, Congratulations to David and thank you very much for your contributions as well!

[ An aside: This is the problem with congratulating people on milestones: if someone slips by unnoticed, they can feel bad because no one said anything. ]

Where my posts have been heavily concentrated in 2 or 3 forums, putting my mug in constant view for a couple of bartenders and sheriffs, and where David seems to be helpfull EVERYWHERE, including in the very busy General Java forums, it's not hard to see how he could have sprinted past the 1000 mark before any particular bar-keep could notice.

Nevertheless... he deserves his own party.

Hey, yeah! No one's ever noted any of mine! OK, I'm coming up on 6K soon and I'll be expecting a big broo-ha-ha!

My ego tried this on me when I posted my reply above and saw the #'s for Ben and Joyce with mine smack-dab between them. But everyone here is so respectful and supportive that I knew it was probably more likely that no one had a chance to notice in the 18 hours that have past since I hit the 1000 mark.

Three cheers for people with good attitudes!
