My sidebar is filling up, so I have decided to creat a separate page to list the awards bestowed upon me by my friends in the blogosphere.
Receiving recognition in any form is a great honor and also a somewhat humbling experience as this blog has only been in existence since June 7th 2007, and has become more popular than my original blog on Free PC Security.
Here are the Awards I have received with a link to those that bestowed them upon me.

My Wish for You in 2008
May peace break into your house and may thieves come to steal your debts. May the pockets of your jeans become a magnet of $100 bills. May love stick to your face like Vaseline and may laughter assault your lips! May your clothes smell of success like smoking tires! May happiness slap you across the face and may your tears be that of joy. May the problems you had forget your home address! In simple words …May 2008 be the best year of your life!
