While Anand is away on a well-deserved vacation (ed: and as such isn’t around to stop us from doing this), we wanted to give The Boss a very special shout-out to wish him a happy 30th birthday.

For those of you familiar with our history, Anand has operated AnandTech since he was just 14 years old, which means he’s now been writing reviews (and breaking things) for half of his life. And while he has slowed down a bit with age – we understand that he sometimes sleeps now – his hard work still puts the rest of us (younger and older) to shame. But in all seriousness, even after having read AnandTech for most of those 15 years and worked for Anand for many of them, he continues to amaze us on a regular basis.

Of course they say that with age comes wisdom. On his 30th birthday it’s clear that Anand acquired both of those in spades – which is probably why he’s on vacation while we’re still working (ed: hey!).

Happy 30th birthday Anand!

    Only 30? Ah, you're a young pup! Home-cooked food and exercise, and you can do this for us until you decide to retire. Cheers! :)

    I don't usually post, but I've been reading Anandtech just about every day for many years. I expect to be reading for many more. Thank you Anand, and Happy Birthday to you!

    when I said Overclocking led to hair loss.

    Seriously though been reading Anandtech for over 10 years due to your passion and commitment into providing some of the best analysis of the hardware we all know and sort of love. :)

    Happy birthday Anand. This place isn't perfect, but it's IMHO the best site on the internet for quality unbiased reviews, which is a heck of an accomplishment!
