    Every day, jobs are saved, careers improved and solutions found.

    Thanks to you. Yes YOU forum reader. We love you. And we love your contributions too.

    But forums are from time to time "tidied". Archived to improve performance.

    TechNet Wiki however, are where the real heroes are celebrated for generations to come.

    Thanks Peter,

    But I am worried that I am alone in this DBE section :(  ,so it actually feels like running in race but alone. No body to compete with.

    I really don't know why there is no article in DBE section. Kind of discouraging.
