Hello and intro or is it re-entry?

Hi all,

It�s been awhile since I visited this great place. Doubt anyone will remember me. Long story short I worked my way through the OOP exercises in the Cattle Drive getting nitpicked to death by Marilyn and others back in 2003. I got side tracked by work when my boss decided he wanted me to be a SAP Basis Admin for the new SAP R/3 ERP we were implementing. That took all my free time and then some.

Now I�m back on the Java horse and have crawled my way back through the Cattle Drive exercises where I had left off only this time without the nitpicking. I�m currently studying for the SCJP 1.5 exam and have Kathy and Bert�s book (chapters 1 & 2 read), the LearnKey MasterExam loaded, new pack of index cards and my little-red-caboose attitude engaged.

Why am I taking the exam? It can�t hurt and to satisfy my personal desire to be a better programmer. Just two weeks of studying has been very enlightening.

Sorry about the rambling� figured I�d better give y�all a warning before I started exposing my ignorance around these here parts.

Cower. That's more like it.

Actually I've found answers to all my questions, so far, by searching this and other forums here.

So maybe it won't be that bad, but then I'm only on chapter 3.

I agree. Here's the link:

It's not a secret anymore!
