Wow. So much love. I dunno if I can top that, but hell, I'm gonna give it a go.
Happy birthday man. From the start of ATS, there's been just three people we could look to as our collective leaders, and you would just so happen to
be one of them. For this, I and I'm sure everyone here, are deeply indebted to you. If it wasn't for the vision that you three had, we'd not be
able to be having this conversation.
There's no real words that I can use to convey the sense of thanks for such a wonderful thing as ATS. I never could have come up with this idea on my
own, and even if I did, I wouldn't have had the technical knowledge, nor the funds to be able to do something so amazing.
On this day, we should all reflect on what this site has done for each and every one of us, and be thankful that you, SO, and Springer found each
other in the proverbial ether, and managed to put together one of the greatest online communities that exists today.
Simon, this is your day. When SO and Springer have birthdays, I'm sure they will get the same praise as you are right now, but know that we all love
ya for what you've done. Regardless of what anyone may tell you to the contrary, this is indeed a good thing.
Again, I'd just like to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY, and to keep doing what you're doing to allow us to stay here. Oh, and one more thing:
