No snow angel

I love snow

Actually let me clarify. I love snow from indoors, when I don't have to go outside into it for any reason. There's just something very simple and festive about a neighborhood covered in snow that I like. Call it quaint, or old-fashioned if you will. Of course, the effect is always nicer when you haven't forgotten to order more of the oil that heats your living space, and you wake up and it's fifty-nine degrees in your apartment...

I've finalized the front design for the Winter-een-mas shirt. Just did a bit of tweaking here and there, some color balancing mostly. Here is the finished design for this year:

And as I've said, on the back will be the thirteen verse Winter-een-mas story from 2004. I'm thinking that we'll only do one shirt this year, simply for ease of delivery and the time restraints. WEMas is right around the corner, and it doesn't do anyone any good to receive a 2005 Winter-een-mas shirt in February.

With any luck we'll start taking pre-orders in a day or two.

Last day of Child's Play

The official Child's Play Donation drive ends today

Child's Play raises money and toys for children's hospitals around the country. I don't know about you guys, but hospitals weren't exactly my idea of "fun" when I was a kid. Hell, they're still no fun. I think that the least we can do is try to make the experience a little more tolerable for kids.

If you haven't donated a toy, or a few bucks to Child's Play (you have no excuse for not hearing about it... we've been running banners for it for a month now) then hurry up and do so today. Make someone's holidays a little brighter.

The CAD forums will be down for an undetermined amount of time while we upgrade and implement some security features. I apologize for the downtime, and I will announce it here as soon as the forums are back online.

Thank you for your patience.
