Count me in!

I have been lurking on this list since it's inception.  Like most others, I am
probably too intimidated by my lack of true experience with JAVA to jump into
discussions.  I have been reading up on it for over a year and have had a few
fruitless starts to personal projects.  It seems, though, that without a
definite goal (read: project) it is hard to get any momentum.  (Any
suggestions anyone?)  Also, having been working with the S/38 - AS/400 line
since about 1980, there is a whole lot of unlearning that needs to be done for
me to be truly effective with such a different approach, although I have been
intrigued with O-O since first learning about it some 10 yrs. ago.   Is anyone
willing to share their experience with some of the different educational
"modes" (tutorials, video tapes, seminars et al)? 

And now for a plug... We have a Java/O-O SIG here in the Chicago area,
sponsored by the Omni User, an AS/400 oriented group.  Our SIG meets on the
1st Wednesday evening of each month.  For more info, e-mail me at the address
below.  In December we had a talk by John Quantarello from IBM Java Marketing
that was eye-opening.  In January we will have a demonstration of a GUI with
AS/400 data access, including an explanation of how the development process
occurred.  In the future we will have presentations from ERP vendors using
JAVA and we may consider a side-by-side comparison of IDEs.  So slowly we are
increasing our high-level knowledge of JAVA, but the challenge of learning to
truly work with the language remains.
