I just wanted to say that Dick really *is* active and helpful on the MS 
newsgroups.  I wasn't going to make him feel obligated by endorsing him 
personally, but he is a tireless contributor and mentor--especially to people 
with questions on anything VB-related.

There are a number of MVPs like Dick on the forums he mentions that really are 
the backbone of Microsoft's support for the PocketPC platform, IMO.  It's 
possible that the reason there seems to be a smaller base of people answering 
questions on those newsgroups than on the palm-dev-forum is that the MVPs do 
such a good job that others don't feel as much of a compulsion to chip in 
themselves.  Also, while I suspect this is changing, I think the base of expert 
developers on PPC/WinCE is still smaller than for the Palm OS platform.
