Oh, it's Friday!

Another of our tech marvels, the only thing you need to do to find James is mention an Android app anywhere on the forum - within a matter of seconds, he'll be busy helping you - which looks like a huge contribution in and of itself - until you realise that he doesn't just help everyone, he also built the Android app in the first place...
James is full of ideas (in fact, I owe him an email at the moment, but I'm busy writing this instead - sorry, James!) - and has been a hugely valuable contributor to our (mostly tech) volunteer group on Slack. You may have seen some of the clever tech stuff he's put together - his activities list for the south-east looks to me like a potential model for the whole of Wales, as soon as someone (yes, we'd like it to be us!) can give it some proper support.
He's also been a staunch meetup leader and supporter - in the not-always-an-easy-sell-for-Welsh south eastern part of the country - something else which I think is one of the most important things happen, and want very much to be able to support more.
In fact, the more I look at what James does (when I'm not getting emails from him with his surname Mahoney on them, because that distracts me by making me think of Police Academy), the more I see him as a very important outlier/front line for a lot of the most important stuff that we need to try and achieve over the next ten years or so.
I'm looking forward very much to when we can actually put some investment behind our general enthusiasm in that direction.
James has always struck me as quieter in person than I expect from his text contributions - I suspect he probably spends a lot of the time he's in my company thinking 'You really don't need quite so many words'. Nonetheless, he's been kind enough to keep on putting up with me, and keep on providing massive value to this community.
If you use the Android app, it's time to say thank you...
If you're glad the forum is not full of Android users demanding an app, it's time to say thank you...
If you're glad the forum is not full of Android users asking increasingly furious unanswered questions, it's time to say thank you...
James, we salute you!
