    Whatever that is, he deserves it.

    Just so we know (and can celebrate), what has he done?

    Well done Robert. And to think I knew you when (when I sat on the other side of the wall and heard you making gentle suggestions to RxCalc users). Although being in the hall of fame doesn't give you license to kick back and relax. Get back to work.

    Fair enough question, drk! I think it's safe to say that I was recognized for my contribution to the creation of the Vision Council's Data Communication Standard (the creation of which was the work of a pretty large number of people in addition to myself, including dcf, just above).

    That, and being an all-around great guy.

    At least, that was my take on it...

    A very concise standard, useful and human readable. Congrats and job well done to the team.
