Congratulations are due to Marilyn deQueiroz, who has now submitted more than 1000 messages to the Java Ranch Big Moose Saloon. she joins the real "heavy hitters" of the Ranch. Well done Marilyn, it takes a lot to get this far, and I'm sure we all appreciate your efforts and the help you've given to so many people.
Wow, 1000 posts. I wonder how many hours that is equivalent to. Some of my posts are quick, like 1 minute and some take a half an hour or more. I think a lot of Marilyn's post take a while because she often has to try to understand what we cattle drivers are trying to ask her. I would guess that represents probably between 50 to 100 hours.
*tips his hat and kicks his heels up* Congrats Marilyn! Still new to the Cattle Drive and JavaRanch in general, but yer one of the most dedicated people I have seen. Let us in on a little secret, by your monitor, do you have: A) A box of tissues for the tears B) A little gadget that you push a button and it bursts into fits of laughter C) One of those squishy balls to strangle and throw D) All of the above and then some Congrats again, well done and well earned!
