This is quite concerning. Ben now has 3000 intelligent, high quality, friendly posts. If this continues we'll have several Bartenders out of jobs.

Too much in a short period of time. You obviously don't work hard enough at work

Highly unlikely.
It's the work that you, Bear, et al have done (and continue to do) that makes these forums worthy of such effort in the first place.
Thanks

Paul,
You're not exactly moving at a snail's pace yourself.
But, we can discuss this at our next 'Secret Society to Take Over Javaranch' meeting. (oops shouldn't have mentioned that here...).
Thanks.

Is that 3,000 posts in under nine months? Wow! I doubt whether anyone is contributing so much so fast.

Looks like you've crossed into the 4 digit realm yourself.
You must have your own party.

Hey Ben, you have got all the compliments in my absense. Actually I was on holidays. I took my honey to the moon .

I wish, I were raise this thread up. Anyways, thanks David for raising the thread for Ben. He is really a special Ranch hand.

Keep up the great work, and please don't forget me when plan a meeting on "How to take over Ranch", Ben and Paul. I know i'm having snail pace, but will try to move fast.

Thanks Ben.
