Happy birthday Kerm!
Thank you for the kind wishes, everyone! I particularly love the color text program, the calculator-train, the Kerm-pie, the encoded message, the birthday XML... Very Happy You guys are the best.

Fortunately or unfortunately, I am in Chicago for T^3, so although I get to spend the day with friends and colleagues, I won't get to see my family until the coming week. The plan is to continue attending interesting coding/engineering sessions today at T^3, have lunch with a certain excellent gentleman who has been very supportive of my and our work here at Cemetech, and hang out with Jonimus and his fiancee this evening.
Merry birthday! Hope your cake is delicious and moist! Very Happy

Happy Birthday Kerm! Smile
Happy birthday from me too. Smile
Happy birthday Kerm!
I've decided to try something a little different this year, while still embracing the tradition of making something neat. Instead of creating a program, I've made an image, which encodes a message. The message is not buried very deep because you need to be able to find the answer quickly for it to be any fun. Enjoy Razz

Happy birthday, Kerm!
Happy Birthday!

Oh no, although I think I solved this last year, I never responded to it! The obvious first step was to check the color values:
Code:
486170 707920 426972 746864 617920 4b6572 6d2121
Those 0x20s in there were a dead giveaway for the next step; I recognize an ASCII space when I see it:
"Happy Birthday Kerm!!"

Thanks, mr womp womp and everyone else from last year; thanks, PT_!

Merry birthday Kerm!
To celebrate I made an ASCII flavored cake!

This was really hard to do as Cemetech understandably hates excessive whitespace
Once again, here is a very easy one that could have easily been very hard Laughing

We all know what it says anyways, so I'm not sure its even worth doing Rolling Eyes
Mine are bit harder, but you should end up with "Happy Birthday, Kerm!" when you are done with each of them.
