I think I don't say it enough ( or may be I overdo it -- take your pick), but JavaRanch is my most favorite website. I like all you wonderful people here, who make this website the best learning source for many.
I am one of those who chanced upon it too late ( yup - I was living in isolation! ) and often I wonder if I had found JavaRanch before, my learning would have had a different and a pleasing graph. Nevertheless, it's not too late.
It being Teachers' Day today, I want to thank you all for all the help you all provide us with day and night, going through all the silly mistakes we do in our logic building, in our code, in our thought process, and also for the efforts you put in to keep this website running without too many ads and failures.
It's not just the staff here ( though yes, it's mostly you guys ), everyone here is really a pleasant experience to work with ( in a way, we are all working together ).
You all know just how much of help to give, or if a nudge is enough, or when to let us be. Even professional instructors could learn this from JavaRanch.
Sometimes I wonder if you guys also have junior engineers in your team and if you mentor them. They are one of the most fortunate people in the world, cause they have you to review their work more often.
Thank you and happy teachers day ( happy teaching and learning, if you like that version of it).
