We noticed that Piet Souris has been consistently helpful in various ways and has been nice to other members in these forums. So we decided to award him the "Rancher" title. Please join us in congratulating Piet.

Piet, thank you for your contributions to these forums and congratulations on the new title.

What does the Rancher title mean?

This page http://www.coderanch.com/how-to/java/SaloonTitles has a brief description about it. Unlike the moderator titles (like Bartender, Sheriffs etc...) which have super powers associated with them, the Rancher title is more a token of appreciation for the members' contributions. However, the one notable power that a Rancher title brings in, is the ability to award cows to fellow members. So whenever you see a post which deserves a cow, please do make use of your powers and award them.

And here's mine. We may not always agree, but our discussions are always interesting.

Well done, and well-deserved!

I bet you both agree on that statement I can acknowledge its correctness

I was just wondering, for no good reason: do Ranchers wear larger hats than we mere Ranch Hands? Is the size measured in gallons?

You probably know the Texan expression "All hat, no cattle", don't you? So it's the number of cattle which counts, not the size of the hat.

So she began again: `Ou est ma chatte?’ which was the first sentence in her French lesson-book. The Mouse gave a sudden leap out of the water, and seemed to quiver all over with fright. `Oh, I beg your pardon!’ cried Alice hastily, afraid that she had hurt the poor animal’s feelings. `I quite forgot you didn’t like cats.’
