At Wendy BG's kind suggestion, I'm writing a seperate thread nominating Mungofitch (Jim) for the 2008 Feste Award to encourage others to speak to his outstanding accomplishments if they wish to do so.

Jim has been a stalwart at three Boards again this past year; Falling Knives, StocksB/Berkshire Hathaway and Mechanical Investing. The frequency, range and intellectual depth of his posts earned him first runner-up status for this award in 2007. His contributions in 2008 were even more prolific, thought provoking, well-reasoned and wide-ranging this past year. Further, Jim has a demonstrated gift for explaining or illuminating often murky or difficult concepts, research and observations in a way that simplifies them, generally always with a dollop or two of whimsy thrown in.

In 2008 alone, Mungofitch has unselfishly shared his expertise on several hundred posts on a large range of issues. Here's three posts from each Board in 2008 that typify Jim's talent and multi-faceted contributions:
