Any of you who receive a PM from me in the following couple of days, please be sweethearts and send me your high-res versions! Oh, and anybody wishing to be credited to both their first and last names should send those to me as well - otherwise I'll credit just your first name (or your screen name, if you haven't provided a first name).

Ha... well I guess you never know what will happen when you hold your 5 year old, first model Kodak digital camera up over your head and click down on a plant!

Thanks Judges!

So...I'm surfing the internet today and come across my photo on a cover of BQ magazine.

Lorax had deliberately misspelled my last name so it would be difficult for me to find. I sent her an email, but got no response.

What a slimeball...

Pretty sad the way this all worked out. I thoroughly enjoyed my time helping work on the magazine and then to find out all the underhanded things that were going on that I had no clue about. Maybe some day we can do our own version again.

I don't know all the stuff that happened and I don't want to. I do wish something like this could take place again though. It seemed like a great idea.

It went belly up. There were publishing issues.

There's a post about it somewhere, I forget where, but it explains everything that happened.

This explains it
