(Please note that due to the dotcom demise many Internet Companies that we received awards from are no longer in existence. Consequently, the original links are no longer working. Some of these websites have been restructured, shifting their focus away from providing free services and are concentrating on e-commerce or e-health commerce. Many sites have discontinued their awards. However, this does not diminish the awards given in good faith for recognized excellence in websites during a time of enthusiasm, excitement and good-will on the Internet.)

Somehow I can't believe that there are any heights that can't be scaled by a man who knows the secrets of making dreams come true. This special secret, it seems to me, can be summarized in four C's. They are curiosity, confidence, courage, and constancy, and the greatest of all is confidence. When you believe in a thing, believe in it all the way, implicitly and unquestionable.
