This year our Technical Director, and the person most responsible for the existence of Shadowcat as an entity, turns thirty-five. By folklorish manner that is half the span of man (three score years and ten) though modern medical advances places people in his region of birth/habitat as between 87-93 years of lifespan for those who are biologically identified as male.

In celebration we at Shadowcat would like to note a few facts about his birthday in figures. Our MD, Mark, has written a rather interesting blog for this day which has a lyrical take on the tale of how we came to be.
