ManyFriends.com only works because a lot of good people pitch in and help out. The following people have been a tremendous help in various ways and are among the best of our Many Friends:

  • Shannon Holland can take burgers & beer and turn them into magic -- it's an amazing thing to watch. Without him, ManyFriends.com would not exist. Everyone say "Thank you, Shannon!"
  • Shadow Dancing has been amazingly patient in helping with our many Java and Web Objects questions.
  • Mikey has also been instrumental in making sure that we practice safe Java.
  • Michiel Konstapel, Jim Scully and George Ziniewicz were also quite patient answering my many technical questions on the usenet.
  • Bryce helps make the network go, and generally provides guru-ness, when asked.
  • Dandelion & Ledward helped debug Magnets! when it was young (Dande by playing, Led by making it crash! :)
  • Pam Greene is the empress of devising ways to make things better, in general. If you like the way our toys look, play or feel, you can probably thank Pam. All the silly ideas are mine -- she did her best to stop me, honest.
  • "Buffums" was amazingly helpful in getting these web pages just-so. Everything brilliant that you see here is hers. Everything that's sub-brilliant is where I chose to ignore her advice and do things my own way.

...And too many others to name.
