That's bogus. I was going to support the site. Really, I was. But Glenn couldn't take my money and keep me anonymous so I couldn't.

Actually, I think the pi pin is sort of cool, and I'm happy to keep it. I was just looking out for my buddy TDA, who is looking for his 5 year pin.

Edited to add: Oops - I see I now have a 5 year pin. That's cool, too.
Thanks!

Avi, of all people that I thought would take full advantage of the 100x100 pixels, you're the last one I thought that would leave a whopping 4px x 100px of unutilized space. What gives? You okay?

I've gone on ahead and automated the pins so you should get them without having to ask. So now all of your alts from 5 years ago that you've forgotten about are pinned. Please feel free to continue to take a bow when you do get your pin, and see ya again in 2011!

Alt IDs that you've forgotten about? I don't understand. Please explain.

Actually, if you have truly forgotten about them, you won't be able to check. For what it's worth, I checked out some of my alts and one actually has a 5 year pin. The rest rate pi pins. I think I quit making up new ones, but I might have just forgotten the ones that are later than that. . .

By the way, Parrot Lady says "Thanks, Tom."
