I haven't been around much lately since I'm now learning Java on-the-job instead of by-the-book. BUT when I do have a question I cannot seem to get an answer for in a book or on the Sun documentation website, I come back here to the Moose Saloon and search the most appropriate forum(s) for the answer. I can usually find it, too. The best thing is that my question (which was someone else's question earlier, obviously) is usually answered in plain language with a very simple example. It's a great resource. Thanks!
