    Damnit, if I knew were relic lived, I had the money and could afford the time off work, I'd drive to where he is and make him get on for just one post to accept his trophy back.

    Well I think the majority of us will be doing whatever we can to make sure it's home a little longer than that!

    I call BS on the trophy history. We all know that Al Gore invented it when he invented the internet.

    Home is where the "trophy" is. ;)

    It's nice to know that people care enough to remember the "history" of this great project.
    The Battle of the Titans continues.... :D

    Did someone call upon the Force???

    On behalf of one retired and MIA [H]FoldingFarmer to another, I've emailed Relic about the news and the thread.

    ... and btw: CONGRATULATIONS!

    May the Force be with the [H]orde....
