Acknowledgments

Acknowledgments

There are a number of people I wish to say “Thank You” to. First on that list is God. It may sound trite, but it isn't. I would have died at sea were it not for Him, before this book even became an idea in my head.

Next would be Arun Ranganathan at Netscape, for pointing me to those IDL files at lxr.mozilla.org. Without his help in at least pointing me to them, this book would have died halfway through.

Then there are the numerous people on the Sams Publishing team: Shelley Johnston, Jon Steever, Patricia Barnes, the technical editors for this book, Martin Honnen and Jason Byars, and several other behind-the-scenes people I haven't yet met or e-mailed.

John Krutsch, a longtime friend and fellow moderator at Website Abstraction, for his work on cookies.

Jason Karl Davis, Ryan Frishberg (a.k.a. “Arielladog”), and Andrew Shults (a.k.a. “thejavaman1”), for second opinions on my occasional guessing.

Several Mozilla.org engineers and QA people whose names I can't even begin to recall. What goes around comes around, ladies and gentlemen, and I'll be coming around quite a bit in the future.

George Chiang, owner and operator of Website Abstraction (http://www.wsabstract.com), the first place I found a home in Web site design.

The various journalism instructors at Defense Information School at Fort Meade, MD. Particularly then-Gunnery Sergeants Beyer and Roberts of the United States Marine Corps, in the radio and public affairs departments respectively, and Sergeant 1st Class Sizer who put up with my attitudes (barely) in print journalism class in the winter of 1996–1997. I don't think I could have written this book as well as I did without your teachings, and you've definitely impacted my writing style. The same applies to all the non-commissioned officers, petty officers, and chief petty officers at DINFOS during that time.

James LeBlance at Smart Scents, and Dimple Sayles at D & R Hauling, for doing everything they could to keep a roof over my head and food in my stomach.

Who could forget Mom and Dad, who will be celebrating 25 years of marriage in April 2002? I couldn't.
