    Considering I was one of the previous contest winners I don't want it to look like I'm complaining here, I can honestly live without the recognition. I just thought past winners might appreciate the same recognition for their efforts as the 3,000,000th post contest winners have been.

    I figured this may not have been brought up before because the previous winners were apprehensive about asking. I'm a little apprehensive asking this myself but I'm willing to put the idea out there for the benefit of myself and the other past winners.

    All winners have been issued their proper badges.

    Mea Culpa for our not taking care of this sooner, and thanks for posting about it. I guess everyone else was too shy to remind us.

    See the History of Macrumors Contest Winners thread for the list of honorees.

    I was on my way here now to point out that Q had missed the 1,000,000 post contest winners.

    btw I've always liked your avatar, I can't quite make it out but it looks like a dog pirate to me. :cool:

    edit: Oh right, thanks a bunch Doctor Q!

    well now I'm not sure if I should unlock the mystery! It's actually a graphic from the Guns N' Roses 'Chinese Democracy' tour.

    I didn't miss them. They were all correct yesterday, but the automatic scripts that ran last night (they check for problems in the database) decided they knew better than we did about the badges, and reset them. I've had a few words with those scripts (we both speak INTERCAL). We'll see if the badges survive the night tonight.

    I refuse to answer that question on the grounds that it will show that I was involved in the stolen code episode, and was in fact the spy, the spy's contact at Microsoft, the person who discovered the spy and tipped off Apple, the person who did the INTERCAL translation, the creator of INTERCAL, the person who started the rumor, and your long lost twin.

    Shush! I told you never to tell anyone!

    So, exactly what is the family fortune worth, anyway?
