I just wanted to say thank you for all your hard work with all the awesome modules you have created.

Without them I would not have been able to finish the project I've been working on for a customer in time and you bring great and necessary funtionality to SilverStripe.

The latest release with nested dataobjectmanager and a working datepickerfield outside of popups is just too good to be true. I have been using my own hack to get the datepickerfield working but now with an official patch I can finally throw that ugly hack out the window and go for the officially sanctioned version.

The nested dataobjectmanager opens up a whole new world for managing more advanced relationships which has been kind of a choking point for me with Silverstripe. There are ways around it but the solution you have made is the most intuitive one and the way the user expects it to work.

Also your support is by far the best on these forums which is kind of ironic considering you do this in your spare time and the Silverstripe developers actually get paid for their work. You answer quickly and helpfully, they generally don't answer at all.

Once again, thank you!

Hey, thanks, guys! That really means a lot. I do put a lot of time into SS mostly because I enjoy doing it, but also because I really believe in the product. It's definitely encouraging to receive feedback like that and know that my efforts don't go unrecognized.

Smurkas, I may want to collect your info if it's alright with you and use your comment as a testimonial on my website.

Keep it up, guys! See you around the forums!

I third that :)

I am using the nested DOM on a project now and I really don't know what ugly solution I would have had to come up with without it. Not a project goes by that I don't use the DOM in some form.

I would suggest that you have made the single largest contribution to the SS community that I have seen in the 12months I have been a part of it.

Thank you Unclecheese :) :)
