I googled for SCJP. I liked the fly, the moose and the "A friendly place for Java Greenhorns".

I was just starting to learn Java and I was hunting for a solution to a problem and stumbled across JavaRanch. I failed to bookmark it and a few days later had to again search. And I had forgotten the name. So it took me longer to find the second time than it did the first time.

It was a dark and stormy night... I was preparing for the SCJP exam and searching for more information on inner classes. I found the Campfire Story, Getting in Touch with Your Inner Class, and from there I eventually staggered into the saloon.

Despite working with Java, it wasn't actually Java which first led me to stumble across Javaranch. A friend and I used to send each other puzzles and riddles in emails. One day, when googling for a something tricky to send him, I came across the Programming Diversions part of Javaranch. After copying a few of the fiendish puzzles there I had a look around the rest of the site and was pleasantly surprised.

I used to post on the Sun forum, but after the Water Cooler closed, it stopped being fun any more. Also it seemed that the balance of the forum changed as many of the regulars left. Intelligent conversation got replaced with annoying repetitive questions. That's why I was so pleased to find Javaranch - it seemed to me to be something similar to the Sun forum at it's best, and since then I've realised its even better.

Got to know of it from " the " SCJP book. What hooked me on to the site most was that i could actually send messages and get replies from Bert and Kathy. I was like " WOW !! i can speak to the authors and give them direct feedback ?". Plus the range of topics one can post on here is great ! and bla bla bla bla bla bla bla
