Regarding the Membership Drive

First, a brief note on the membership drive contest — the winners were selected and notified via email at the end of last week. If you didn’t receive an email from me (or from one of the companies sponsoring prizes), alas, you did not win.

My thanks again to all of the fine companies that donated prizes for this contest. It’s very fun to give away piles of cool stuff; I can see why Bob Barker keeps going.

Even bigger thanks to those of you who contributed to help support this site. April 20 marked the one-year anniversary of my announcement that I was going to write Daring Fireball full-time. It’s been quite a year, and I couldn’t have done it without your continuing support.

Thank you all.
