Congratulations are due to Carl Trusiak, who has now submitted more than 1000 messages to the Java Ranch Old Moose Saloon. He joins Paul Wheaton, Ajith Kallambella, Jim Yingst, Tony Alicea, Frank Carver and maha anna - the real "heavy hitters" of the Ranch. Well done Carl, it takes a lot to get this far, and I'm sure we all appreciate your efforts and the help you've given to so many people.
Amazing! If we take the average time per post to be 5 minutes, that's over 5000 minutes that Carl (and the other people Frank mentioned) has given to the Saloon. Here's are some other ways to look at it: 5000 minutes is equal to: * ~83 hours. * 2 weeks of full time work. Now if we take a billing rate of (to make it easy $100/hr), that's $8300.00 of volunteer work! As I said at the beginning of my post: AMAZING!!! BTW, congratulations Carl. -Peter
