Congratulations to Barand on 1000 likes

Recommended Posts

Our resident SQL guru Barry "Barand" Andrews, who recently surpassed the 1k "like" mark -- a first for any member of phpfreaks.

 

The "like" mechanism is a relatively recent addition to the site, making it that much more impressive.

 

Phpfreaks has always been a 100% volunteer effort. People like Barand are what makes this site the amazing place it is, and they do so to help others learn and achieve their goals.

 

A number of our members have been visiting the site on a weekly basis for over a decade. Barry is one of those incredible people, and I feel proud to be associated with the site thanks to regulars like Barry who have kept the community alive through its many ups and downs over the years.

 

I hope you'll join me in congratulating Barry on this milestone, and in thanking him for sharing his expertise with so many people over the years.

With the effort he puts into his responses and the depth of knowledge he shows on a regular basis, I'm somewhat surprised he only has 1000. Congrats Barand!

Agreed, I thought he'd be well over that mark already. Congrats Barand, every one is well deserved.

What happens if I go back to pages I "liked" for him previously and remove the like?  >:)

Go Barand!  Your SQL kung fu has always amazed me, motivated me, and also intimidated me :P  I've actually "liked" several of your posts as well.

Barand's a great guy ... first "met" him at another site many years ago.  Always a class act --- a decent fellow with a good handle on many subjects.  Congrats, man.

I love Barand.  He has helped me out of a bind so many times while I'm trying to learn mySQL and sometimes even php.  I've probably been on this site for 10+ years now, but off and on as I have not always been actively coding.

 

What I really like about Barand is that often times when asking for help, some people will say, "Why are you doing it this way?" where Barand just gives you the answer. He's always very helpful!

Exactly. Thinking is overrated.

I miss Philip! For what it's worth, Barand's "Like" tab has 62 pages and Philip has 9. I imagine there was some "like" testing going on in Philip's case.  :geek:
