500,000 points... that is a TON of points. IDZ community mastermind Steve Lionel, commonly known as Dr. FORTRAN, has reached that mark!
What does a half of a million Black Belt points look like? It’s about 20 thousand answers on forum questions plus hundreds of blog posts and articles on top of that. I’ve just checked some historical data and it turns out that Steve has published one of his first posts in this particular forum almost 13 years ago. That’s impressive, is it not? As for the blog, you can find his first, self-introduction post on IDZ (actually ISN those days) here: The Doctor is IN! and it was submitted about seven years ago!
We all know Steve mostly by his short but meaningful & helpful posts. In case you wonder how does Steve look & sound, here is a video for you: A Check Up with Dr. Fortran.
There are many ways to stay in touch nowadays. I think the best way to stay in touch with Steve is to be a proud member of his FORTRAN community. But it’s not the only way:
I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank you, Steve, for your remarkable contribution to the IDZ! Congratulations on this outstanding achievement!
