Real programmers don't comment their code. If it was hard to write, it should be hard to understand.

  1. Most Helpful - It's a toss up for me. I'd have to go with volka and d11wtq.
  2. Best Code Snippet - HTML Purifier is pretty sweet, but so is Swift. Tie for me here too. Ambush Commander and d11wtq.
  3. Fastest Advancing Newcomer - I'll have to agree, superdesignz.
  4. Most Peculiar - abstain.
  5. IATM - Probably me.
  6. Friendliest - Everah, you big teddy bear.
  7. Funniest - I'll have to think about that
  8. Most Inspirational - I have no idea.
  9. Best Avatar - My walking spider was pretty cool. Okay, me.
    Image
  10. Most Thorough Response - I'm tempted to say volka, although Maugrim has been posting some pretty thorough response lately too. But I'll stick with volka.
  11. Best Signature - No one's is really memorable at this time.

What says we can't?

Worst case, each point gets distributed amongst them.

I thought that too - that's why I didn't post my vote on that topic. He has been pretty prolific though, so I PM'd him to see if it was for Swiftmailer or one of his other snippets. Haven't received a response yet.

You know, there are a lot of us in facebook. I am a friend of Kieran, feyd, d11. And I'd be yours, too, except there are like 285 people with a variant of your name on face book and I have never seen your face so I don't know who you are.
