We are pleased to announce and acknowledge the hard work and dedication of these two men:

How many have you inspired that became involved?

Great job, Pete!  You were definitely ready. O0

Congratulations Papa__Smith welcome to the new pay grade

Oh yeah, the pay is so much better than an IIT's; however, it doesn't match the increase in responsiblitly...and work. >:D


Really though, congratulations to you both.
