doggies on the Cattle
It's where you come to learn Java, and just like the
cattle drivers of the old west, you're expected to pull
your weight along the way.
The Cattle Drive forum is where the
drivers get together to complain, uh rather, discuss
their assignments and encourage each other. Thanks to
the enthusiastic initiative of Johannes de Jong, you can keep
track of your progress on the drive with the Assignment Log. If you're tough enough
to get through the nitpicking, you'll start collecting
moose heads at the Cattle Drive Hall of Fame.
We got 'round about a good
dozen ranchers drivin' along the trail, most of 'em in
rasslin' good ol' Java-4 Say and Servlets-4
Fresh riders on the
Got two new Cattle Drivers

Another moose on the wall
Yep, that's right, you make it
through, you get yerself a nice little moose to hang on
the wall. Well, OK, so it's a virtual moose on a virtual
wall, but you can be right proud of 'em! Thanks to the
efforts of Marilyn deQueiroz, you can now
proudly admire your codin' accomplishments at the
Cattle Drive Hall of Fame.
Check it out, pardner, it's worth a wink.

Barry Gaunt has bagged another moose. This time
it's on the Servlets trail of the drive. He's a mighty fast
driver, that 'un.
John Hembree splits his time between
the ridin' the open range and his farm (basement server farm)
in the Ohio territory. John just bagged his first moose
on the Cattle Drive Basics trail.
Back in the saddle
Cowboy Daniel Dunleavy spent a spell out
on the open range. But now's he's back in town, huntin'
down that no-good varmint called "Say-4b."

The law's one step closer to tracking down that outlaw

Old-timer Carol Murphy is rasslin'
the last assignment to the ground. Maybe them XML
assignments are right around the bend.
Nitpicking is hard work
We know they're workin' reeeeeally
hard, after all, we've seen what those assignments look
like once the nitpickers have combed through 'em. Hats
off to Marilyn deQueiroz, Pauline McNamara, and Jason Adam for their dedication
and patience with the pesky vermin that always manage to
make their way into those assignments.
Those gentlemen behind the
Notice the fellas wipin' the bar

under the bar, if you know what to ask fer.
