    I'd just like to take this time to thank Arn for his hard work in maintaining this site. Today, amid the flurry of updates, I've noticed many people on. I don't know what he did, but somehow he avoided a major /. effect (Hey Arn... do you know what the max load was today?)

    Well, basically I just want to say thanks. You're doing an awesome job, and since I didn't see a "thank-you" thread on top here, I decided to make my own little one. When I get a credit card I'll subscribe, but right now all I can give you is my thanks. This site rocks, and keep up the good work.

    awesome. you covered your butt from my "donate" spiel... heh

    i agree. the way the front page is set up separately from the forums and stuff is such a great move. makes big events much better as the updates can come, without killing the site...

    arn's the man.

    Uh oh, vniow, if you ever do become a demi all the things that I said about you are NOT true.

    I swear, I did not have an affair with that woman :D

    Well, I could just delete all my incriminating posts, a pro of being a demi.

    ah, this isn't a contest ;)

    you wouldn't want to know about the jello thread in the mod forum, would you?

    Let's at least attempt to keep this on track....

    Ha, you see, when I get to be a demi, I'll never tell anyone.

    That is the way to go. :p

    I don't dis-like anyone anyway so I don't even expect their to be much.

    I think arn is trully awesome. He does an outstanding job running this forum. This is like my father-in-law who's a physician, his love and passion was collecting Art. We are very lucky that arn has chosen us as his love and passion! ;)

    Right, back to the topic, couldn't help it.

    Arn, the mysterious man behind this all is truly remarkable, I've never met him and most probably never will but that doesn't ruin the fact that he is a major player in the Apple rumor world.

    I've never known what "Arn" is, is it his nickname, his real name or just something that he made up.

    I've thought about it for a while and come up with this:
    Automatic Rumor Nomad.

    But then I realised after looking at a Magasine called ARN.
    Australian Reseller Network.

    So Arn must be Aussie...
    :D

    I would contribute but there is one small thing: I want to see your rank (i.e 6502. 68xxxx. 601) and your demi-god title at he same time thats what holding me back

    If you PM a message to arn, he could change your title to "Contributor." I had an objection myself and arn was gracious enough to change it for me!

    arn is a great manager of this site and deserves our support.
