May I be among the first to congratulate Gary on his ’Frustration & Futility’ Award. I aim to repeat your success and have been studying your epic list of submissions, including such gems as "WIPO launches IP PANORAMA: Online E-Learning About Intellectual Property Issues For Small and Medium Size Biz" and the unforgettable classic "New Specialty Database: Science: ChemxSeer to Hunt Molecules Online; Also Say Hello to TableSeer"Congrats also to the recipients of the lesser awards.

@ Shana - it was a bunch of fun for Jeff and I to do.... it started small with me doing some numbers ( I am a # junky ya know) and then we thought it was working so we started spoofing the ceremony part... from there, it was laughter upon laughter.. :0)@ Plant - congrats man! Welcome to the world of celebrity in the Sphinn-o-sphereSebastian was pining for a ’dumbass’ award on my post Friday.... had me thinking about some silly awards like that to which I could make some polls for... let folks actualy vote.... who knows, if the people want us to do more... we may. At this point it was a one-off really... we’ll see how it turns out.... If we had an award for the ’Fastest to go hot’ I think this post would win.. should be hot witihn the hour :0)Stay tuned for the exciting conclusion tomorow!

<font face="Arial" size="2">@ Andy - 1hr 58 min to go Hot... we think the delay (took 22?) may be because a few folks at Jeff’s shop Sphunn it.. so maybe there is a limit on same IPs?</font><font face="Arial" size="2">@ qwert - dood... you lost me with ’Google Green Bar is people’.... How about ana award for the most confusing comment?? ha ha ha ha</font>

Now that was hysterical -- very well done, gang. Worthy of all the attention it’s getting. :-)To add to the conversation here in comments, my "Top 21 Signs..." went hot in 47 minutes. I don’t know if that’s the record or not, but it’s probably in the hunt.

The Gary Price comment isn’t really nice.  He has contributed a ton and has not asked anyone to Sphinn his submissions.  It is because of that reason that most his contributions did not get hot.  IMO, we should actively watch what Gary submits and help most of his submissions go hot.  <div></div><div>Why? Simply because he brings a new view of search that most of us cannot see on our own, including myself.</div>

Why Rusty?... I actually wrote that thinking that these folks deserved some more love.. the same thing you did.... Bringing some attention to their plight didn’t seem wrong at all to me."For these fine folks that love so deeply, even when they are not loved back" as well as;"for all your efforts and hard work. I know there are 161 of us that are extremely appreciative "and ;" let’s show these folks some love people"Jeez dude.....

I missed this before. You posted it the day I set out for London for SMX; someone there alerted me to it. I guess my comment count is high as this place is a bit like a forum, and I spent a lot of time in several of those too.
