On behalf of the entire site, Runtime DNA, we wish to wish you the happiest of birthdays. We are positive that the members of this site feel the same way we do, as some of them have been your fans since the early Morphworld days.
You have done more, and gone beyond the call to make this site the shining star that it is. You are friend, co worker, leader, expo expert, technical whizzie whiz, and a true giant among men in the Poser Industry. Your history in this industry is undaunted. Your reputation as a fair, honest, and loyal man and crazy in the DNA asylum are why we have gathered here today.
We could not do this without you, nor would we ever want to.
Traveler, ERIC VAN DYCKE,
WE LOVE YOU.

Eric was one of the first folks to inspire me to be get into 3D work. Morphworld, Eric's old Poser site, was full of information, clever approaches (magnets with targeting sights!) and more morph packs that you could even possibly use. He is part of the blood, sweat and tears that go into RDNA every day and that really shines through. From one tech guru to another, thanks for being there, Eric!!! The world is a better place with you in it!
Eric you are my Hero. Always ready to help and advise. Thank you for all your support. I only wish I could offer you Eggs Benedict for Brunch.

Happy Birthday to the fabulous Traveler! You are one of the warmest and most giving people that I know. My dear friend, my confidant, my co-conspirator, my second set of eyes... My Noodle Bomber.
Wishing you the happiest of days today and hoping that you know how much I, and all of us at RDNA, adore you.
GB X a gazillion.

Eric, I don't even know where to start. You were one of the first people to ever really believe in me, that I could make something that wasn't junk, and I've learned so much both from you and from working with your wonderful creations! (Favorite. Teddy. EVER!) Your kindness, generosity, your amazing talent, and your flare for the -funnest- Challenges are something that has carried me through my darkest days and kept me going even when I thought my creative spark was long ground to dust. I can't even begin to count the number of times I sat down to work with your ever diabolical-themes and used them to work through everything life threw at me!
There is NO way I can even begin to thank you for that everything that you've done or, most precious of all, for being YOU. Never, ever, EVER change, except to have many wonderful and amazing years ahead!!!! Happy birthday!!!
Happy Birthday to the most versatile independent thinking and simply brilliant individuals I've ever known. It isn't often you get a chance to meet one of the greats, even more rare you will get to work with and even for them. From the time I first saw your work and the help you gave others it was clear to me you would be one of the top people to know. I got to see not only the beauty of your style, but the love of the craft which does make you not only help those around you but also do so in the most uplifting way. May you enjoy your day today, and the many more to come in the future.
Traveler...like many of the folks here, I started out in awe of your work
and your wisdom. I'm proud to call you a friend, and I deeply appreciate all
you've taught me over the years. You still amaze and impress after all these
Happy Birthday and I look forward to sharing many more with you.
Or your clones.
I can never tell which.
