So here's the story...

We all know how much great advice and input Holly has had on these Forums.

In fact, she was selected to be a Forum Moderator because of her great input and demeanor.

Yes, she is truly admired and respected !

Yet, there is a problem...
Parallax, as a small token of appreciation for being a Moderator, has decided to give custom engraved Leatherman Squirts to these un-sung heroes :-)

All Leatherman's have been shipped (and received)...except Holly's.

Why, you ask? Because Holly has not given us her shipping address - and won't even respond to our PM's on this subject.

Holly, we are desperate to show our gratitude!

Matt,

Didn't you see Holly's location (under her avatar)? She's a non-local phenomena!

Just put your token of appreciation in the mail, and wherever it ends up ... she'll be there! :smile:

Ross.

I understand Tinker Fairies are notoriously flighty, and most do not wish to be burdend or "tied down" with an "Address"... ;)

But, a really good deal on Ebay is an excellent idea, she would find it.. :smile:

Oh, man, it'd be a shame to miss out. I love mine. A real thing of beauty.

Holly is doing her mandatory service in the Israeli military, and she stated awhile back that she would be part of a project that would make it impossible for her to reveal her location and make her participation on the forum spotty. Apparently her government appreciates her talents as well as we do.

I guess they could hold one for her until she is done or has a break from active duty.

They have one with her name engraved on it so I hope they will hold it for her.

Localrager has summed it up pretty well.

That looks really cool! I will collect it after I'm done with all this duty.
It won't be that much longer..so hang onto that for me.

There is a lot of trouble brewing here, it's possible my service could be
extended depending on what happens. If it drags out too long I will have
you send that to my parents home....I will eventually get back there at
least for a visit.

It's humbling to know that people find my presence here to be useful. :-)

Holly,

Your presence in these forums is always inspiring, but your sense of duty and sacrifice is even more so.
