Changes to the Novell Rewards program

I just got a mail from the company that manages CoolSolutions. They're changing how they handle the points you earn for submitting articles, tips, and tools. Quote:
Beginning December 31, 2006, points will expire after one year of account inactivity. Point balances of members who have had no activity within the last calendar year (2006) will expire on Dec. 31, 2006.

Points will not expire as long as you participate in one of the following activities at least once a year:

- Earn points by participating in any of the opportunities listed at Novell Rewards
- Redeem points by requesting an award at

If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail us at
So. Looks like they're trying to clean up a bit. People who haven't submitted anything recently but are high contributers will get edged out. There are a few in the top 20. Me? My last submission was an AppNote in August, so I'm in good shape.

One more AppNote, and I can get that 80GB iPod. Mmmm. Or maybe those Bose QuietComfort 3 headphones.
