Wow. I must say this is quite unexpected. I didn't even know I was nominated. So thanks to anyone who did nominate me.

To be honest, I really haven't been a big presense in the forums (outside of the Ontario section) for the last few years, so I thought I was flying under the radar. I haven't even written a 'how to' for a long time either, which is something that I thought might have gotten me nominated a few years ago, but not now, so this truly does come as a big surprise.

Thanks again everyone.
