Ouch, I accidentally voted you up before reading the last word.

Danny apparently wasn't even directly involved with this digest. He built the platform (for which we are grateful, of course), but this digest was compiled by:

Marco Krohn
Vladislav Blanton
Marta Rybczynska
Dominik Tritscher

Thank you, guys!

Hehe, yes - full credit for these Digests must go to the people listed above (and to the top right of each issue) :)

I'm still lurking around, but I mostly only fix Enzyme issues as they appear so that others can continue doing their good work!

Cheers,
Danny
