    Wow, I'm really honoured to get this award! PF is so much fun, and then one gets even an award for participating in this fun (for even 366 days this year)!

    Damn. Second prize in a Beauty Contest. I think OmCheeto should have gotten both the awards he won including this one given to me and I should have gotten a special "grumpy" award. Bah Humbug ! :oldlaugh: :biggrin:

    Anyway, thanks to all who voted for me and congrats to all winners, especially @ProfuselyQuarky for the newcomer award.

    Thanks, everyone! Not sure why anyone voted for me, though :D Wish I could contribute more to this awesome place. Shout out for @Math_QED, who was my choice :smile:

    Two awards would have put me over the edge this year.
    Too many people already doing that, IMHO.

    Hopefully, next year, they'll take my advice, and create a "Faraday award".

    thanks folks for the kind thoughts and words.
    If my simplistic attempts at explanation have helped someone 'climb over a hump' , well , it's a small down payment on the debt i owe the universe for the generous help i got along my way.
    I'm happy to see so many familiar names on the list, they are folks who've helped me ..

    Thank You PF . The people here who give selflessly of their time to help others are building something unprecedented.

    "Pay it Forward" ?

    thanks again,

    old jim
