    1. Thanks @MattieTK(only once? =D) We’re really excited about it but we’ve two weeks to go until the voting ends so we’re going to be nervous until then. We definitely want to thank everyone who has voted for us. And then another month until the results are announced.

    1. Thanks @TechtvIreland ! We just saw your Facebook mention a moment ago. We’re going to be shameless and plug ourselves and say you can vote everyday until July 1.

      We’re really surprised and excited by the nomination, it’s going to be hard month though – the results won’t be announced until July 20.
