Jane Griscti sent this link to me, and reading the article I thought it may be interesting for all CattleDrive students and professors
Especially this part:
�Finally, this may sound a little corny, but Franklin started on his exercises after someone pointed out deficiencies in his writing. It may not be pleasant to have someone point out flaws in your Java code, but if someone does, it may provide the motivation to do what Franklin did and improve your skills.�

Thank you, Jane!

Speaking of Jane, does anyone know why she dropped off the Drive?

Yes and thank you too Map
It sure does look like Paul got an endorsement for his "nitpicking" style of teaching Java.
Maybe we should point Mr. Nielsen to the Cattle Drive. But then are the nitpickers realy wating for more students ??

Since a new student means $200 for JavaRanch, sure!
