Re: 100,000 posts!
Steven, I have benefitted greatly for several years now from being a daily user and sometime contributor to MathGroup. I collect and compare the various solutions to posts on a daily basis. I have found that in doing so I get an education in the use and capability of Mathematica that is invaluable. MathGroup has also generated a number of opportunities to interact with other members, to share ideas and collaborate. For all of this heartiest Thanks! Best wishes for the next 100,000 posts.
