@Grant - I converted this to community wiki - apparently they've changed the behaviour now so that when you answer a wiki question then your answer isn't a wiki answer by default... (!)
@Matt - these 'improvements' keep on coming!
Oops. Sorry. I sure didn't notice that.
I only found out the default had changed through an off-line conversation with Chris M @ Red Gate...
Thanks Grant - it sure means a lot coming from a man of your stature
Congratulations Kev for a well deserved recognition. As soon as I saw the news on the email I came directly to here and @FatherJack already opened a thread:-)

Thanks! You are too kind!
Way to go! Justly deserved recognition to be sure.

Thanks! I'm blushing now!
I know that I am late to congratulate Kev, but as Blanche Devereaux once said on the Golden Girls show, "better late than pregnant". Seriously though, I totally owe the initiation of my activity on this site to Kev. One of my first answers was to this question. I answered it incorrectly without any way to test my attempt at solving the problem because I did not have SQL Server 2000 handy. The problem intrigued me though and I kept on coming back and asking Kevan to test some other variation for me. While doing it, I incorrectly kept on calling him Kevin (I did not know yet how to spell his name, fixed the spelling error later). He always came back with the answer despite the fact that I was obviously annoying. Kevan’s patience and willingness to experiment until the solution is found truly amazed me, particularly because I was a new user without any points to my credit.
People like Kev make this site so helpful. Nobody is disregarded and all questions are taken seriously. Congratulations, Kev!!!
@Oleg Cheers! I now feel entirely responsible for dragging you into this! Addictive isn't it?!
@Kev Riley Addictive it is!
Thank you for being here Kev! You're smart, yet not geeky. I'm afraid that I'm more the opposite of that, but I have you and others here to steer me in the right direction. :0)
