I'd just like to wish everyone a merry Christmas from the MacHeist team as we each pass out for the night. The Giving Tree was quite the epic production (I think we started working on pre-production in July) but it was all worth it for the past few days, and you guys matched everything we threw at you with an absolutely gigantic response. We've already had over 100,000 people stop by for gifts!

So thank you, and a special thanks to the dozens of Mac and iPhone developers who were involved in making this such a memorable event. Enjoy your software loot, but most importantly, enjoy the rest of the holidays!

Happy Christmas to the Directorate - The Giving Tree event went off brilliantly. The hard work shows. I can't wait to see what lies in store for the actual Heist.

I'm dusting off my deductive abilities, and preparing for an invasive exploration and extraction of Heistacular swag in the coming weeks...

Thanks, Phill and John, and Merry Christmas to everyone here, on the Mod Staff, the Directorate, and everyone else on the forums past and present - thanks for making the community and the heists as truly enjoyable and memorable as they are today.

To all of the newcomers: thanks for getting on board and supporting MacHeist! If you thought the Giving Tree was exciting, you ain't seen nothin' yet. If The Directorate got you to fasten your safety belts for the Giving Tree, come MHIII it'll be time to put on your shoulder harness...

As someone who's been enjoying MH from the start but lurking in the shadows, let me now speak up and say thanks for everyone thing you guys have done and wish you all a merry Christmas and a great new year!

Like megamoose, I am a long time participant but silent lurker.  I think it's time I emerged from the shadows to say "Thanks" to the Directorate.  You guys obviously put a lot of thought and hard work into this.

Can't wait for the heist to commence!

Merry Christmas to all.

I'm such an airhead. I meant DAVID- as in Lanham. I know he's not part of the directorate, but designers shouldn't be overlooked. (Apparently just misnamed. Lovely.)

What he said  smile

Seriously, the Directorate has been working on Giving Tree since mid-summer, I think, and it was incredible.  Mostly.  Grumble.  No, really, it was.  And with the real fun yet to come, Rampancy is right...hang on to your hats, 'cause it's gonna start rockin' pretty soon!
