This is my 10,000th post in the DaniWeb Java forum. so I hope I won't get an infraction for being off-topic.
I just thought this would be the perfect opportunity to thank all the people who have helped to make this such a valuable and rewarding experience for me. I can't name them all now, but particular thanks go to peter_budo and Ezzaral who, 5 years ago, set me on the right path for "how to respond to a DaniWeb post", ~s.o.s~ who has forgotten more about programming than I ever will know (despite his being completely wrong about happiness) and mKorbel whose knowledge of Swing is even more amazing that his interesting use of the English language. Others deserving a special mention include masijade, stultuke, bestJewSinceJC, jwenting and the much-missed NormR1. Everyone else: you know who you are...
I'm really looking forward to continuing working with, debating with, and learning from all you guys.
