I mean, we really don't deserve it. It's awesome. Good work everyone, high-fives all around. Cheers (for those of you from across the pond, so-to-speak).

    $\begingroup$ This is like the bleeding Houses of Parliament. "Would my colleague, the right honourable Member of Parliament for Nether Wallop, like to tell the House just how awesome we are, and how proud we are of our Glorious Leader"... $\endgroup$ – Yemon Choi Jun 25 '13 at 6:51

    $\begingroup$ I thank the right honourable Member for Saskatoon for his excellent and insightful question. Indeed, this government has a long standing policy for the promotion of awesomeness ... $\endgroup$ – Neil Strickland Jun 25 '13 at 8:32
  • $\begingroup$ Um, why don't we really deserve it? And indeed, why is it so awesome? In other words, what makes you say that? I'm genuinely curious... $\endgroup$ – Todd Trimble Jun 25 '13 at 13:58

    $\begingroup$ Well, I don't know, I guess I don't feel like I deserve it, maybe you guys do. But for the most part, considering that this is a free website, and that we're just a bunch of cross-eyed mathematicians, I'm not sure we deserve it. And w/r/t your second question, I'm still figuring that out. It certainly is pretty! $\endgroup$ – Jonathan Beardsley Jun 25 '13 at 14:58

    $\begingroup$ Oh, but for one thing, I'm really excited about the ability to edit comments, and do this: @ToddTrimble (did that work?) $\endgroup$ – Jonathan Beardsley Jun 25 '13 at 14:59

    $\begingroup$ Agreed, ability to edit comments is nice. If you're asking did the notification to me work, then "yes". And I'll say I had a positive exchange with SE support wrt to getting my account properly up and running, so that's a good sign as well. Oh, @JonBeardsley. $\endgroup$ – Todd Trimble Jun 25 '13 at 15:30
  • $\begingroup$ Yeah, so happy about tagging people in comments, though other people may not be so happy about my ability to do this... $\endgroup$ – Jonathan Beardsley Jun 25 '13 at 15:41

Well, Anton and friends worked pretty hard to make this happen, so they deserve a fair bit of credit here...

But mostly, it's this guy's fault:

Super "Geoff" Dalgas

He's been busting his rear for quite a while now to make sure everything works, and here pushing midnight he's still at it, his supper presumably cold on the dinner table and his wife in tears.

So if you see something you like, take a moment to raise your beer in the direction of Oregon and toast ol' Geoff.

    $\begingroup$ Thanks to all the SE mods who've been so helpful over the last 24 hours getting everything up and running again. It's been a great start to 2.0! $\endgroup$ – Scott Morrison Jun 25 '13 at 15:06
