On a 1,000th Postby dws (Chancellor)

It is a Monastery Custom to mark the passing of significant events with a post of thanks. Though it isn't clear whether 1,000 posts* is actually an accomplishment (as much as it a waste of perfectly good keystrokes), it is still a good point to pause, reflect, and express some well-earned appreciations.
First, my hearty thanks to vroom for getting this started, and a hearty thanks to he and his hench-people for keeping PM running.
My thanks to the editors for helping keep the Monastery tidy. A lot of quiet, volunteer, behind-the-scenes cleanup happens here, holding entropy bay.
My thanks to all, Saints and others, who have set such good examples with their well-written posts and thoughtful replies. I'm continually impressed by both the depth of thinking to be found here, as well as the patience many show when answering the same question the n+1st time. By following your example, I've learned quite a lot about both answering and asking questions, and hope that it sometimes shows.
My thanks to the many who have challenged my biases and beliefs. I wandered in here an intermediate Perl hacker at best, and have learned an immense amount of useful stuff, much of which is not to be found in any book.
And finally, my apologized for anyone I've offended inadvertently. Bonus points if you can make the "inadvertent" distinction. :)
Onward. There's work to be done.
