So where is the opening ceremony at this year? Last year we had it at Evo's garage and it was...fantastic.
This year we need to run a Bunsen burner around.

Negative. We are definitely not letting Evo run around with a Bunsen Burner. Don't you remember what happened that time with the chainsaw?!

But after the unfortunate mishap which destroyed their home, PF members came together and built them a new home, solar powered, sustainable...

and Greg chipped in internet access and a lifetime PF membership. The oldest son is now a budding physicist, the first racoon to attend University.

Still brings tears to my eyes.

It's amazing how the quantity of quality post in the engineering forums I follow has grown in the past year. There are so many deserving members.

I agree. There are many times now when I recognize a username who has replied in a thread when I'm viewing the top level of each forum, and I know that I don't have to click into the thread to help out. Their level of expertise and patient help is that high. And I know if there is a problem in the thread, it will be reported. Very nice!

Contrast that to my own posts, where Phinds has to send me nasty e-mails about my grammar!

Gosh, I want a badge. I wanna be a homework helper too. But Im also stuck with my own problems since I'm finishing my masters. Next year maybe I'll be able to help more and be active here not asking but answering. LoL.

Polls open tomorrow!!!

Before I forget, I want to mention a rule change. We have some super extraordinaire members here who have won awards multiple years. No doubt those badges are starting to become heavy! In order to give them a break and to give other members opportunities, we are leaving last year's winners off the ballots. Thank you and game on!
