+1 from me Peter. 

You guys have really been one of the most successful podlings I've participated in,
and one that has made tremendous progress.

That you sent this email and not some *ahem* other superstar in Lucy, is a strong

you added even more icing.

Get the heck out of here and shine. Lucy deserves it.
