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.
Yeah, I tried to do this too, but was too late -- I was told that the site is now sponsored solely by DWS.

The slices of pi are for members that have been here for 3 years and some change (about .14 year). How's bout a coupon for one free pint of Yuengling, instead?
I don't even remotely qualify for the 3-year pin, yet I can't escape the feeling that maybe I should have that one, because...because...oh, I just can't put my finger on the exact reason.

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."
What with you people and the alternate IDs? Why do you need more than one?

Simple. A new ID, a new avatar and a new sig line for each topic.
Now there is only one topic. And only one 2pac.
And Parrot Lady wants to know when is your next birthday.

You're just being irrational. Transcend that pettiness.



Anyway 3.14 ≠ π

That would be funny if the pin didn't actually say "3.14".
