It came and went so fast that one could have almost overlooked it. But getting to this tremendously big number, and helping so many people along the way, deserves a special mention.

Bear, I salute you!

Woot! Woot!

I generally dislike emphasizing post count anniversaries, and am happy that these threads are now few and far between. (Unlike a few years ago when you couldn't swing a dead cat without someone celebrating another meaningless anniversary.) But Bear deserves a special exception. Well done, sensei.

Absolutely amazing. And somehow writing all those books at the same time. Thanks for your incredible contributions, friend.

Can't really think of anything funny to say. "Does a Bear post in the woods?"

Thanks Bear.

If you are not laughing at yourself, then you just didn't get the joke.
