(I apologize for the late reply but I was offline for a week looking after
a health/family matter)

Thank you everyone for the kinds words. This award is a complete surprise,
and reading your messages made me realize once again the privilege I had
for all these 12 years.

Working in a Smalltalk-inspired world is indeed inspiring. But, what makes
it a privilege is working with all of you. And, I am not saying it just for
the sake of it.
