Last but not least a word of appreciation to the folks behind the awards calculations. Many many thanks to our brilliant volunteers Girish Bangalore (Nemesis) and Manish Nadkarni (WCW) for spending days in crunching all the data, analyzing them and completing the detailed report. And also thanks to Prasanna Ranganthan (Weekenders) for his valuable inputs. Girish is in India on vacation and yet found enough time to do this for all of us. Thanks a lot guys.
