Excellent! Chris Menning is credited for his awesome work on this website! Of course Jamie, Ellie, and Yatta deserve their credits as well but Chris is hardly ever part of the praise.

It was only a matter of time. Glad to see recognition paid out to those who deserve it. Congrats, Chris and the Rocketboom crew.
