Hi Jim!
This is my first post! I'm a lurker!
I have been using Webmaster World for many years now and have been an official member for almost a year (10/13/2009). Happy Anniversary to me!
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you on behalf of myself and all the hundreds, nay, thousands of others that you have helped.
Kindest Regards,
Brian Brown, Ph.D.

Agreed, he knows his stuff inside and out... and very generous in taking the time to help out others. Hats off.

...and congrats on de-lurking brianbrown ;o)

Hear, hear!

I always feel safe about Apache advice when it comes from Jim. And not only that - he's no slouch when it comes to Google SEO, either.

Jim is an absolute gem. This forum is VERY lucky to have a guy of his caliber participating. Hes helped me out on more than one occasion, and Im very grateful for that help.

Cheers to Jim, I agree.

welcome and thanks for delurking, brianbrown!

re: jim...
i'm not sure - i think there's actually a team of experts behind that nick.
although there's a consistent personality, so i'm still not sure.
he's a beast - that is for sure!

I'll second that. :)

Thank you Jim!

But please, let's also thank the other frequent contributors to this forum, without whose help I could not possibly keep up with the volume of threads posted here. Their contributions are vital.

Hi brianbrown, and welcome to WebmasterWorld. Great first post to thank one of the great people here.

Let me add my thanks too. Thank you Jim.

I have several jdMorgan posts pasted into my server maintenance notebook. He really knows how to explain things so that even I can understand them. Many thanks for all your help!

I even cite him in numerous .htaccess comments/notes to self:

## SEE ALSO: http://www.webmasterworld.com/content_copywriting/3801560.htm

## SEE: jdMorgan: Scroll down re parens: http://www.webmasterworld.com/forum92/5900.htm

## "I specifically recommend that you do not use a custom error document for 500-Server Error
## for the simple reason that if your server has a serious problem, you want to use the
## simplest possible method to inform the user (and yourself) that the problem exists." -jdMorgan

## SEE: jdMorgan re eBay, etc.: http://www.webmasterworld.com/forum92/2101.htm - re GOOGLE CACHE REFERER

Jim, for all you do, and for the skill and grace which you do it, thank you!

After being here for over two years now, I have to say that jdMorgan has impressed me more than anyone else. His knowledge of Apache is astounding.


 6:42 pm on Oct 14, 2010 (gmt 0)

I'm five years with JD... If his collected words were put in print it would be titled "How To Do The Web RIGHT!"

Thank you, Jim. Oh, and for being a good and civil person, too!

Jim is by far the most knowledgeable guy in APACHE that I've ever known and on top of that he's extremely helpful as well.

Thanks a lot once again Jim for all the help that you've provided me - whenever I'm stuck with mod_rewrites I know where to seek guidance from.

cheers! :)

The stuff that jdMorgan helped me write for my http.conf file is the stuff my server and websites now totally rely on... Enough said.

Yep, amen. Jim, you are a gem.


 4:03 pm on Oct 29, 2010 (gmt 0)

Agreed, jdMorgan has helped me out loads since I first started in web development.

Many many thanks
