Thanks for the award and many thanks to all who contribute.
I see my effort as just pulling together a tiny amount of the enormous amount of work the Developers and everyone else contributes - standing on shoulders so-to-speak.
It’s really easy to be a part of such an active and inclusive community.


Nice work Shawn, well earned!!


I will sponsor the next month. Please ping me privately.
