Me too. ;)
Before Kevin became distracted with little things like running the
company <g>, he was among the most regular contributors to the MC list
where all this began. Without his excellent post on arrays (not all

(if you think Rev's docs are subpar you should have seen the Read Me
that comprised most of what we had to work with to learn new features in
A lot of folks I know post here on a sort of "pay it forward" principle:
we've gotten a lot of help from others in the past, and feel obliged
to return that favor to others. A lot of the programming community is
like that. I honestly believe that NNTP predating HTTP reflects the
