Today we have an unusual update. We've passed multiple milestones in single updates before, but the last 48 hours have seen a rush of new share purchases from several people. That means more than one person gets special recognition today; I hope no one minds sharing.
First, a Supreme Protector's Tip of the Hat™ goes to Mort ach, whose purchase of 675 million isk worth of shares put us over the 51 billion mark. Next up is Derrek Katelo, who purchased 2,000 shares shortly afterward, putting us past the 52 and 53 billion marks. Derrek earns a coveted Double Supreme Protector's Tip of the Hat™ for his efforts. And finally, Echo Belly purchased 100 shares and put us over the 54 billion mark. A Supreme Protector's Tip of the Hat™ goes to Echo.
But the story's not quite over. I'd like to recognize another new shareholder, whose purchase of 671 shares nearly put us over the 54 billion mark prior to Echo's purchase:
Zechrabah's heartfelt contribution of 671,743,612.58 isk is deeply moving. It's a peculiar amount--could he have actually cleared out his wallet? If so, Zechrabah's sacrifice is a worthy penance for Code violations of the past. Your new life begins today. The 671 million is also strikingly close to Mort's 675 million, but that's just a coincidence. Anyway, while Zechrabah didn't put us over a billion isk mark, he nevertheless earns a Supreme Protector's Nod of Recognition™ for his fiscal valour today.
Congratulations to everyone!
