Happy New Year - what did I miss? Answered

I'm back!

It was two weeks staying with internet-less relatives and friends over Christmas and New Year. I had a very nice time (got a bottle of Bushmills!), but I suffered withdrawal symptoms.

So? What did I miss?

Welcome back! You missed the end of the laser cutter contest, and my first featured instructable.

Pardon? LinuxH4x0r's featured 'ible was a cake. Hang on, I've been seeing references to portals and "aperture technologies" recently, especially on t-shirts. Is this some aspect of popular American yoof culture that has passed me by?

You missed the end of the laser contest, zietgeist introduction, the invasion of the face snatchers, and my attempts to meet future me. You also missed the Instructables Robot t shirt and Leatherman give away

From where I live, I can't hit the Atlantic, never mind l'il ol' you!

I'd offer you a cookie to make you feel better, but I've seen where that leads...

Oh, and here's me thinking SC just liked the way I looked (I've already noticed at least one ID-change). Anything else? I'm trawling through the 'ibles, but I should really be getting my own ready for the Holiday competition...

There have been a lot of victims to "curiosity killed the avatar."

Huh, new nickname, SC

You didn't miss too much..... mostly because my attempt at creating a cotton candy gun failed, but never fear... IT WILL COME! (Along with Project X and 5 other 'ibles that I need to publish)

Great to have you back Kiteman. You missed the huge event that all Instructables members got free Robot t-shirts at 12:00, January 1st. Just kidding, that would really suck! Great to have you back, some great Instructables were posted up by the way.
