Hi all!

It�s been about a year now that I joined Java Ranch, and an educational one it has been. I�d just like to thank you all senior ranchers for creating, running, improving, moderating and contributing to the site. My knowledge of Java beforehand was academic (a course in Uni) and managerial (overseeing a team of Java coders.) Now I am in the thick of it and loving every moment!

Fantastic stuff: forums, book reviews, Rules Roundup, FAQs, etc. A very well rounded and relevant site.

A special thanks to William Brogden. Prior to last fall, I has always considered myself �a high-level application guy.� With his initial introduction and encouragement to some servlet stuff (rememeber "read-n-spew" ), I have been jumping much deeper into Java than I ever expected. Also, the resulting servlet project has put a few gold stars beside my name on the company register�so much so that I can wear what I want and nobody complains about the late starts I prefer. (Bill, if you ever find yourself in Z�rich, please drop me a line and I�ll buy you a sarsaparilla!)

Anyway, that�s enough smoke blown your collective way. Thanks again and keep up the great work.

Stu

I have been quoted as saying "When I grow up, I want to be William Brogden"

I know what you mean
 
Squanch that. And squanch this tiny ad:
