I think it's about time Kattullus got a pat on the back for a staggering output of consistently excellent posts.
Remember Modest Needs? They turned five years old this week and hit one million dollars in funds dispersed since they started. In the anniversary post, the founder mentions they got their whole start thanks to that post on mefi.
