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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
