I’d like to take a moment and, on behalf of all the staff members of this site, wish our fearless leader, Mike Macauley a Happy Birthday.

Back in 2004, Mike was only 14 when the site opened, now he’s turning the ripe old age of 20. Mike probably isn’t the most thrilled that people even mention his birthday, but we’re going to do it anyway! We appreciate everything he’s done for the site and we wish him many many more years to come.

If you so wish, post your birthday wishes for Mike in the comments. And if you wish to see Mike showing off his New York City pride the day after the Brisingr release, check after the break.
