Re: Day Note Puzzle Fun Counting Challenge

This is the time of year for holiday cards and, in our business, for showcasing the ones sent out by major publishers and studios, and bragging about which ones you've received.

They're very flattering, but few could be as flattering as that virtual card we got yesterday from Nic - aka commenter Flagg - whose brother Shawn has done the programming for the the site hosting it, The Card Chest. Nic put a holiday spin on the Metal Gear Solid equip-a-box joke for the card, which he designed in Photoshop before uploading and sending over to us.

We cover some important people and companies, and we're happy to have professional relationships with them. But they are not and never can be our constituency. These gestures from readers mean a great deal, and I'm not sure if a reader understands how much they mean when a writer considers how fortunate he is to do the job he does.

Happy Holidays to you all.
