Congrats, Ken.

Can I ask why CJ is still listed (or ever was listed) as a "contributor" to this site?

I think I would be more interested in the "ever was" than the "still" question.

Anyway, Happy Blogiversary!

I'm glad to see that excellent series of posts by Palisadesk made the top 10.
Thank you for a stimulating 3 years. (It's been 3 years already? WTF!)

Thanks all.

I gave Catherine the ability to post on the blog when she was having trouble posting on the original KTM. I'm keeping it open just in case of emergency.
