Hello!

Jack Mullins from Jonesboro Arkansas here.  I am an applications programmer
for Sun Industries, Inc., a privately owned tanning equipment company.  At
the moment we are not doing any JAVA development, but, we will be looking
into the possibilities after our Y2K conversion is complete.  I have just
recently completed a C++ course at our local University and I'm looking
forward to doing some OO development.  I've got a book on JAVA (about two
inches thick!) laying on my desk, but, I'm afraid I can't be of much help at
the moment.  Hopefully, I'll get to start learning JAVA soon.  Good luck and
merry Christmas to you and all others on the list!
