  1. Quite a few pleasing results in there, but big bucketloads of congratulations to the SF Signal crew in particular, of course: a great reward for all the effort that goes into running this here place.

  2. Well-deserved congratulations to the SFSignal crew for the Hugo. Hope you are pleased as I am that your excellent work, week in and week out, has been recognized. Cheers!

  3. Woo! Fricken! Hoo!

    Well-deserved. Maybe not quite as well-deserved as Betsy Wollheim’s, but well up there. I’m darned glad you finally got your rocketship.

  4. Speaking of watching it live…has the thrice-damned streaming service put the video back up?

    Or, are there pictures of His Bagelness that we can pass around and snicker over?

  5. There is a picture of Mr. DeNardo going around Facebook; VERY dapper! :-)

    Congratulations again, John. It was lovely of you to thank the crew, but as I said elsewhere, you are the cyborg-wizard who makes this whole thing work. Thanks!
