I sent one to your e-mail address, but maybe it got caught or something else happened. PM me with the address you want it sent to and I'll take care of it.

Yay i got mentioned at the bottom, well done to the winners, I was suprised at the random prize having so little views and comments, that's a great idea highlighted by the random bit, personally I just drilled a big hole in the workbench though...

I'm actually pleased about getting a mention, simply shows that people participated for something, many bring up the old kipkay argument, I think that defends against it nicely. Did all entrants get a patch then, I couldn't really tell? On the other hand, Ha kiteman, bet you wish you were Kiiteman now

Ah right, I was trying to figure if it was a consellation prize or like an honourable mention prize... I've been trying to think up a good way to utilize the patch I got from burning questions, but it's hard to think of the right thing for me, some stuff has to be just so... Any ideas?
