The following fine folks, having distinguished themselves with their niceness, helpfulness, intelligence, and gullibility, have been roped into volunteered to help out around these parts and have been given the title of bartender to recognize their excellence:

Wouter Oet
Jelle Klap
Greg Charles

These cowpokes have just been granted their special bartending powers and will be flexing their muscles here in the Saloon. If you see them, say "Howdy" and buy 'em a drink!

Thank you all. I am honour with this title. I hope that I can assist in maintaining JavaRanch as a happy place to learn about Java and programming.

Thanks everyone!
Of course I too am very excited to be a part of the JavaRanch team, and I sure hope I can make myself useful around here!
Now where's that drink? ;)

Welcome aboard. It's getting pretty busy, both on and off JavaRanch, for many of the moderators here, so we are very glad for the help.
