    New Admin: Vansmith
    Please join me in congratulating Vansmith on his promotion to Admin.

    Vansmith will be joining myself and iWhat on the admin team. In his new role, he'll be primarily working on overhauling and reinvigorating the blog in addition to his existing task of leveraging the ban hammer with a heavy hand.

    Congratulations, Van!
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Congrats, Van! Well deserved.
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    This should perhaps be emphasized.

    Small steps my good man, small steps.

    As for the job itself, I'd like to thank the admin team for giving me the opportunity to provide my services in helping to administer the website. For everyone else, I hope to help foster interest in the blog by providing assistance to those who want to offer their insights for the community.

    That way you'll be a mile away from him, and you'll have his shoes.
