It was my pleasure to be able to participate in a small way in the presentation of the award to Rudi. Wouldn't have missed it for anything. Congrats Rudi!

Rudi is kind of like one of the "founding fathers" here. His Manual Server might be one of the biggest contributions to this site. It has been invaluable to thousands of people and so have his comments on posts. I am glad I got to meet him at one of Cecil's CubFests. Thank you Rudi, you da man!!

My friend Rudi, add my congrats to winning your award. Well deserved!

To our younger forum members, Rudi and other original members have set a very high example and standard of service. They always give expert advice for us, in a non-condescending manner. I never once felt that my stupid question was taken by him as a "stupid" question. His responses were always delivered in a kindly manner.

Rudi, thanks again for you service and congrats.

Congratulations Rudi!
I have always considered you as one of the the Big Three.
George Willer, Bigdog, and yourself.
This board has grown and thrived. I visit at least once a week nowadays looking for interesting posts and photos.
I joined the board away back in '03 as a newbie to the world of the Farmall Cub, and after many conversations and mentoring on the board I had the pleasure of meeting you and your family in '04 at your home. Never forgot that day.
Your efforts in contribution are very deserving. A real honour from your peers.
Just Do It !
