(...) I'd like to offer my personal congratulations to Kevin too. There've been times when I've found myself using his software far more than is natural ;) Tim (6 years ago, 7-Apr-08, to lugnet.cad.dev.org.ldraw)
Great to hear! From a user of the tools (not an insider) I think Kevin has done some of the most creative and inovative stuff for instruction creation! Congrats Kevin! SteveB (...) (6 years ago, 10-Apr-08, to lugnet.cad.dev.org.ldraw)
(...) It was a great honor to receive the 2007 James Jessiman Award at Brickworld. It was unfortunate the current SteerCo members were unable to attend, but you were there in my mind. I was especially honored to receive the award from Tim Courtney. (...) (5 years ago, 23-Jun-08, to lugnet.cad.dev.org.ldraw)
