The Bolt AwardThis year marks the introduction of something new. An award, or more accurately a recognition of achievement that goes above and beyond the normal call of duty.The Bolt Award by lolly
This will be given out a mere once per year, every August 7th on the Birthday of the site.
What are the criteria for this award?
For contributions to the site that have had a massive impact on it and have caused things to change that affect every single one of us whether we know it or not.

This is in honor of its first recipient, someone who goes very unnoticed and quietly has kept the backbone of this beast firmly in place during all sorts of hell and high water.

By blowing the whistle into a phone, Draper found that he could place long-distance phone calls for free! Well, he went to the slammer for that, but he was the grandfather of a subcommunity of so-called Phone Freaks or Phreaks, as they were called, who explored the intricacies of the telephone systems. Some of them were the first hackers, but others simply want to understand how things worked. But I digress.Phreakin' dA by darkmatterzone
