Hi,

Frequent visitors of ranch cannot miss this man. I joined the ranch 2 years back (when i wanted to do SCJP and SCWCD),and he helped me understand the nitty-gritty of the web. His impact was so much that whenever i wrote scriptlets I see him making faces (saying his oft-said one-liner "JSP's of 2000s" shrug). He continues to inspire me with his knowledge,one-liners ,books and his administrative skills (Please check your private message for an important administrative matter :P ).

Of course, all the ranchers have always helped me . But he deserves a special mention . No one would deny it i believe.

Bear,
Thanks for all your selfless help.

P.S:This is of course not a drivel. Bear , please do send me to the right thread if it has been discussed already ;)

He's my mentor. One who knows nuts and bolts of Java Web development.
Thanks Bear !

And I'll take this opportunity to ask him to why he hasn't started blogging yet ??

I liked his jQuery book.

I read it and used jQuery quite effectively in my work on multiple occasions.
