A big congrats to the nitpickers out there. They appear to be crankin' through the nitpicks lately with the ongoing stampede. I'm thinking we might be working you all harder than you're probably working us right now. Keep up the good work.

Sounds like someone is nervous about their latest submission

And now I know who's been holding up my JDBC-2...
Thinks: I'll have to finda way to slow these guys down...

Not one bit, sometimes the nitpick seems real good and I think "oh yeah I should have thought of that", other times I'm like what in the world are they thinking and then I change it.
I just know that there are a lot of names on the list when looking at the assignment log and there are a lot of entries that are green in the table and they only get to be green when they're new. Now mind you, I haven't been in the cattle drive that long and maybe this is nothing for you all, but what the heck, I appreciate your time to look my code over and give a good tweaking.
We get special mention in the newsletter when we complete a section, and I know that all of you are commended as well. Just wanted to say thanks from one of the moo-heads.

It could also be because Marilyn's still loading down the latest MySQL distribution on that 9.6Kb/s line of hers...

I'll have to admit, I have been trying to catch you on the log. If you could wait just a little bit longer before blowing through the JDBC assignments, I think I might make it. Have you been working on your Developer assignment, you could be working on the RMI assignments for the drive as well. I suppose if you particapate in their creation you won't have to re-submit them for nitpickin's.

Hehe, was just joshing you John. We definitely appreciate your appreciation. We learn just as much from doing the nitpicking as y'all do, and it's quite fun (though at times equally as frustrating )
And Barry's accomplishments have goaded me into finally taking a crack at JDBC-4, get my name off the inactive list. Good luck with the SCJD stuff Barry, keep us informed of how things go!

We started about the same time and I marked you as my pace moose. But me thinks you are part Antelope - you blew my antlers off! .
Just would like to extend kudo's to the moose herders as well! Good job!

Thanks for the compliment, I should be slowing now, starting new job assignment next week and with Servlets-4b on, they want you to use Instructor's source as base code set, so no coding ahead. I do have the JDBC stuff set up and ready to go as soon as I finish Servlets-5.

It wasn't you guys holding up my assignments, nor was it Marilyn, it was the return mail system. No idea why, the return address was perfectly OK.
Something does occur to me though...
If you're getting spammed by Viagra, Homeloans, Refinancing stuff (as I am at work since March, it's all from ???@aol.com methinks ), are they also using *your* name as the sender of one of these randomly generated messages?
If so, a mail forwarder implementing a spam blocker could be blocking any mails with that sender's name in - dunno, wildly uninformed guess.
Any ideas?

Or blocking your ISP because someone used it as the forwarding address....

Is that what happened? You mean swissonline.ch is used as a spammer's forwarding address?
If so, I'll send swissonline.ch a rocket.
