Awarded a Web Standards Awards award

I just found out that 456 Berea Street has been, umm, awarded a Web Standards Awards award. It came as a total surprise but is obviously very honouring, especially when you take a look at the previous winners. Thanks, John, for being so kind in your review. Your check is in the mail. Oh wait, I wasn’t supposed to tell anyone about that.

  7. Very well deserved! Nice work.

  8. Congratulations. It’s one of the most well-deserved awards there, since this site is, besides being well designed, a source of very useful information. PS: I sent an email congratulating you because I hadn’t seen this post.

    Thanks everybody! Better get back to work then ;-)

  16. Hmm, Dave busted on your use of MT (see the award comments). Is it because of it’s utf-8 problems? Is Textpattern any better? Otherwise, this is an incredibly designed site; hope you don’t mind me adopting so many of its features - see my beta site:
