This week's book giveaway is in the Mac OS forum. We're giving away four copies of a choice of "Take Control of Upgrading to Yosemite" or "Take Control of Automating Your Mac" and have Joe Kissell on-line! See this thread for details.
record after records are breaken in no. of posts. last week , Jim reached 5000 mark. everybody wished him good luck for 6000 hoping that nobody still reached there. But , We are having Cindy there first. Congratulations for such a tremendous effort. all the very best for next 1000 ( i think they will be in no time. ) (Ahhhh the power of being Sheriff - congrats shailesh!!!)

After 5000, it becomes apparent that it is not an accomplishment, but a problem. In order to not encourage this addictive behaviour, anyone surpassing 5000 should just be admitted to J.A. ( JavaRanchers' Anonymous ). Some sort of aversive behaviour conditioning will take place in this therapy, in which the rancher will be forced to participate in Sun's forums. Congratulations Cindy, does this put you in the lead for the most posts in this forum? Jamie

By responding to all threads like this one Actually Cindy spent alot of time with the beginners forum and answered many questions. Or does she spend all her time in MD. Either way works. If you want to get there the fastest, congratulate everyone who passes the exams and posts results.
Thanks folks . Try posting all those naming policy posts . Then post bunches of Blatant Advertising for publishers. Then add in a lot of just friendly conversation posts like this one. etc. Course once you are a moderator you can run up your numbers just chit chatting in the Moderators Only forum .

Congratulations. The nos. speaks it self. You have done tremendous contribution to this whole effort. All I can say I have hardly made any contribution.

I could not get you , sire Jim. As always , you are using your sophisticated , politically astute language ( Just kidding ) Rahul, Thanks for appriciation. I think It was my great wish that you beat me in 2000 posts. Infact , i have given you sufficient time. I think I have not posted more than 80 messages after dec 2001. you missed the bus. ( just kidding ). I am waiting for you now to beat me in 3000. Shailesh.
