Yes, Uli - Skofus is top performer this time too., by a considerable margin!

Our roving reporter has just returned from the Dvorak Society's party, which this time was held in Antonin's birthplace:

In third place this time is dg6580004, picking up on the bike picture I think, with:
Now THAT'S a face plant.......

Second goes to Lynn, picking up on this post in the minicities thread:
Michael, looking deep for stats page.

The first place goes to Richard, with:
David Anderson's immediate reaction to my recent email on initial runtime estimates.

but since that post is not part of the competition, I declare Lynn the winner. PM sent.
