There's a little history behind this. Chris started his website stuff at a site called codeguru and the owner of it sold out and left Chris high and dry. Shortly thereafter he sent an e-mail to a few hundred users of the site and notified us he was starting the site and many of us came over. The first member numbers were assigned by where your first name was in the alphabetic sort and not all of those first people actually signed up. As I wrote, Ravi and I are the only ones from back then that I know are still around, at least occasionally.
If there was, I'm sure someone would have GOTTEN one long before now.

YW! Richard beat me to it, but my favorites are continuation and coalescing operators, so you can write stuff like this (not that you'd want to, mind you, at least without really thinking about whether your data model is really right, but really handy when you need it!):
string ns = n?.ToString() ?? "0"; // oops, forgot the quotes in the original post.
