Sorry, Paul, but Java's just a babe in the woods compared to the aforementioned grandSpyderholics. I arrived in early 2001 after lurking about for a good 6 months. Kraziekurtis, Alan E Treat, and JSmith were all regulars when I got here. Kahz, Dynaryder, Zrexxer, and Lokelani still made the the occasional appearance as well back then.
Good to see Clay is still keepin watch on Spyderco's southern seas.
I've got the final frontier......or at least I did have until Obama decided to axe the Constellation Program. PA1 - the launch abort system - is still a go however:
Orion Launch Abort System Test CG Simulation
The real deal is scheduled around April of this year and I'm hearing AA2 might be funded as well.....but I digress.
