Special Thanks From Justin
- Clem – for giving me all the responsibilities I have today and trusting me with them
- Ikey – for getting me to where I am today, for getting me the jobs I have and suggesting for me, along with being a positive force, an example, a great teacher, for listening to all my crazy ideas, and for being a great friend. I likely wouldn’t be here without your encouragement.

- Kuja – For taking an active role in administration and helping us whenever we need it
- Steely – For being one of the greatest supporters of us and never turning his back no matter the difficulty, along with encouraging us to always do the right thing
- Suhana – For reminding me that BSD rocks and for teaching me to stand for best practices regardless of the consequences
- rich_roast – For providing logic and reason even in the most difficult times
- To all the other operators: Roin, gazza, proxima_centauri, linXea, Deadguy, Oscar799 – for being the best supporting staff I could ask for. You guys truly rock and are an inspiration to everyone around you.
