I hope that you didn't infer from my comments that a project manager should only be one who codes. I was trying to suggest that a program manager should know both - coding and managing.
But, if it was my post that made you write your response, then great!
I've been reading, listening, and learning from you for years. If one student's praise is enough to make you feel like you've made a difference, then let me tell you...
You have and you do. I know there's many more Vaughn fans out there. Your work has helped and continues to do so.
It was you who brought be out of the Microsoft Jet realm and into database servers. It was you who first taught me ADO when I was using DAO.
Most importantly, it was you and your work that helped me be a better programmer and manager.
Your hopes have turned into actions, and your actions have made me better. I'll be singing your praises till they tell me to shutup.
