Hmmm...have a few items I think.

1.) Passing my Master's test to get my 4th degree in Tang Soo Do.  I have one in Matsumura Seito Shorin Ryu as well, but it didn't mean as much to me as the one in TSD. 
2.) This website.  We've been doing this for over a decade.  I've met so many people in the industry including Garriott, Molyneux, Itagaki, the entire Bioware team, the God of War team, etc. etc. etc.   I could fill this page to capacity with just the people in this industry that I've gotten to meet.  It's kinda awesome.  Getting to meet a few of you was pretty awesome too!
3.) Served my country with honor and came out alive.

My short list:

- my 2 kids
- 4.0 GPA for my undergraduate in Physics
- 4 consecutive conference championships at my last job
- Putting my kids first throughout my divorce no matter how much that hurt me financially
- 3rd dan black belt in TKD

It's tough to call.

I'm in the camp of thinking I wouldn't make it this far, but I somehow did. nod

Once, I came twice.

Good job buddy. Did you get banned from the petting zoo?

Hrm... I don't know if I think of my wife/kids as accomplishments per se, but I'm enormously proud of both.

Things that I've done on my own that I'm pretty proud of:
Putting out several albums and doing some touring behind them.
Quitting smoking, losing 70+ pounds and getting fit all of which allowed me to do some pretty cool stuff like running a half marathon and doing some long (50 - 72 mile) mountain bike races.

Few things I'm proud of:

- Serving my country in the U.S. Marines after high school.

- Have written and had two books on Programming published. Also been the technical reviewer for several other popular books.

- My career - I wasn't able to afford to go to College, but even without a Computer Science degree I've been able to work hard, learn, and grow over the years. The amount of influence I have today continually amazes me.

- My daughter (she's not perfect but she's pretty frickin awesome).

1. I took control of an Air Force satellite while fresh out of grad school.
2. I got to say "mission planning is go for launch" for 2 launches of Iridium satellites.
3. I got to name a crater on Mercury.

A Pew Research Center poll found nearly half of Americans hold the false belief that TARP was passed under President Obama, while only 34 percent know it originated under Bush.
"Oh yeah?" Bush replied. "50% of the people were wrong."
