Sometimes I wear my feelings on my shirt tye. I'll let my contributions stand for themselves as a way of judging whether my intentions are good or not.

I bet I've got more of my own code that I've written and haven't applied than you have your own unapplied code.

That could be an interesting bet. :-) Im accumulating patches on the test server rather quickly. But beside measuring how long a piece of string is, why not put it up on the test server so we can have a look and see how it goes? Even if you dont have the time to get it integrated fully, (a labour intensive job even with the test server I admit, something I am working on to improve,) maybe we do. For instance I notice refactoring opportunities almost every time I work on the test server, and I'd be astounded if you didnt know far more, so its likely that you have stuff we could put into play.

I can't fix a second problem until I undo the previous patch and redo it in the way I tried to explain several times

Well, I dont know if this is something I've done or not. I dont know what the problem you mean is. Id be happy to look into it.

You got lucky and got a few patches applied. That doesn't happen much for a lot of reasons still.

Yeah. I got lucky. You know, I think that touches on my frustration here. I didn't get lucky. Almost nobody on this site knows what I wrote, I derive modest benefits from my efforts. I don't use Selected Best Nodes, or to be honest any of their friends much. I do benefit from the Other Users being cached, and so forth, just as you benefit from your Super Search and caching, etc, (++) work. Neither of us benefit much from what we do. Except we get this warm fuzzy feeling that people are using and enjoying things that we liked to do and are proud of. Really its PM thats lucky that there are people like us who will do what we do.

cheers
