    The congratulations here are not for me but for all the folks who have worked on sunsite/metalab/ibiblio over the past decade and a half including our great contributors — some of whom have been working with us for the whole time.

    And hey, help us plan to celebrate and for the next 15 years at the sunsite/MetaLab/ibiblio 15 Year Wiki
