(with apologies to whoever wrote the original poem, which seems rather unclear)

Twas the night before Christmas, and all through my browser,
not a creature was stirring - except of course, mouser;

Questions were typed in the forums with care,
in the hope that some answers soon would be there;

Donation Coders were nestled all snug in their beds,
while visions of software danced in their heads;

cranioscopical had just logged back on,
and was all settled down for a long Winter's pun;

When out in the forum there arose such a thread!
We all logged back on to see what was said;

Away to my firefox I ran in a dash,
tore open my tabs and updated my flash;

And what to my wondering eyes should appear,
but some amazing new apps, in time for New Year;

A fun competition to show your ability:
create a new app, game or utility;

Code it, upload it and throw it into the mix,
and then let everyone find the bugs to be fixed

No offense meant, in fact let me be clear:
I am of course referring to my own entry here Wink

But even right now, as the deadline is nearing:
34 apps and they are still appearing!

This is why DC is my number one:
community, spirit, software and fun;

And so I exclaim, to all who can hear:
this NANY is great, and just wait till NEXT year!

Thanks folks! I know it was cheesy as anything, but it's all I'm capable of at this stage  embarassed

I know, maybe I should take a couple of days off! Now, what could I use as an excuse...?

See? see why I included him in the poem!?

Thanks nudone - actually you were the reason I cranked this out in the first place! I was looking through some old Codex Transportica stuff I have lying around, and found a half-written version of something similar from way back smiley
