Thank you for coming.

It's been a long time coming now, but it's time for Twenty Percent Cooler to close down. We've had a good run and had a great time in our heyday, but the sun has set on our little website and now it's time to go.

Thank you for all the memories and contributions to our community in these last 8 years. We had a great time.
