Man, I better get back to answering questions, I'm #11 all-time in points now and Koen is bearing down on me


Aw fudge. I was hoping you wouldn't notice it.
My ninja tactics have failed...

ps: the only reason I've been so active last weeks is because Sean is on hot pursuit of me


hehe I just kind of got in the habit of it over the last year or so and then all of a sudden I was moving up the list. Seems that most of the really "heavy hitters" have not been answering as much either so people like me can come grab the low hanging fruit.

I'm no low hanging fruit dammit I won't give up without a fight!
Seriously now, the "top 10" has been quiet the last few months (with the exception of Gail and Jeff of course). I had a super busy first half of the year, so I didn't have the time to answer questions unfortunately. (I even had my Microsoft Community Contributor status on MSDN revoked. Sniff. Not that I lost any sleep over it).
But it seems a lot of us have it real busy lately.

bwahahahaha!!!

I didn't mean you were low hanging fruit. In fact, I don't think I have ever grabbed you. I was referring to the fact that since the top 10 aren't posting I can come along and toss my crappy responses at them instead. Good for me...but maybe not so good for SSC's reputation as a place to get quality responses.

I translated literally from Dutch.
What's the correct term in English?

In English you would be sitting in front of or maybe at your computer. Sitting behind it would put you on the dusty side with all the cords.

Do you mean that we're destroying this site reputation? I'll better continue quiet.

Are you seriously taking the advice and code from someone from the internet without testing it? Do you at least understand it? Or can it easily kill your server?

..... I don't think I have ever grabbed you.


Sometimes, it's the small, unknown things in life that end up giving me the greatest pleasure. I'm so glad you haven't tried!
