Generally, I don't like "Points For" topics, as poor information for PAQ-ing. But since you took time to add the link to the question, I can find:

Topic was: "Future of programming?"
hmmm, nice discussion there.

OK, I'll 'Answer' this one (bookmark), on condition you consider reducing our pts to 50 each. At least think on_it. Where some think 300 is, should be Max (not I), it seems that 100 each for several people is quite extravagant. But do as you like.

Unless you have to leave EE and move on, I'd prefer to see you save some points for your continuing programming efforts.

(I can unsubscribe to this one, but not to the thread above which I did NOT 'answer'!?)

Perhaps as a few people have suggested, I'm being too generous, but equally compelling a reason to stay at 100 points is that it's easier to just hit the accept button at this point in time, I have the points to spare, and do appreciate the input I recieved.

Thanks you

Such good news helps many, for we all also experience what could be downers when 'answering' someone day after day only to have points go unawarded, or given to newbie who only gives partial answer of what several others had already contributed.  But I not need points that much, caring more for answers, and... have now been at receiving end of some points for undetermined reason (less than my best efforts).  Of late I've been steering my own Q's to be more discussion than of specific problem.

Good luck in your future endeavors, whatever they turn to be.

Thanks. I am focusing on learning Java right now just because I'm tired of being semi-knowledgeable in everything else. I figure I'll focus on Java, then XML and Database applications more and just when I become "expert" at those technologies...I'll have to learn C# to do the .NET services for M$...what the heck, at least I have a job still.
