    Am I the only one who finds it hard to keep up with E.E.L. Ambiense, he seems to have about 30 amazing cases all on the go at once.

    Who is this impostor, and how dare he take the reigns!? :hehe:

    Seriously, thank you kindly, everyone. You're all very kind. Thanks to Richard (Bindi) and Antony for the infinite patience in getting it up, and of course, Tim. Granted, only four months behind, but at least it's finally up, right? :D :p ...and just in time for a new build! :rock:

    Apparently, I hadn't shot any overall shots of her in the original photo session back in March (because I'm an idiot), so I had to recently shoot additional pics and she'd been sitting on my desk at home for a few months now and had quite a fine sheen of dust caked on everywhere. So I guess it was a blessing in disguise to get me to do some cleaning/maintenance for the pics. :lol:

    Again, thank you everyone. It's a pleasure. And thanks for the wakeup call, Bill, to let me know it was finally up! :lol:

    You know Jeremy, I'm glad to see this beauty hit bit-tech's front page. You are deserving of the recognition in every way. Congrats!

    Which brings me to this little story... A short while ago in your outstanding Checkmate worklog, I mentioned that you were like the Susan Lucci of modding... Always outstanding work, yet never getting the MotM wins you likely deserved. Well, fast forward to this morning. I open up my browser, and was happily greeted by Lumière. In my vicarious excitement I mentioned it to my wife as she passed by. (Now, I always suspected she only listened to my mod related ramblings half-intently, and this confirms it...) She said, "Oh, that guy you said was like Helen Keller?" Uh... I'll admit that I laughed till I cried. Then I thought of 'Building Better Worlds', and laughed even harder. ;-)

    Lol, in all seriousness though, great job. I'll be looking forward to seeing Checkmate up here as well!

    Thanks a million, Craig. It means a lot, man. :)

    I mentioned that very thing about you coining me the 'Susan Lucci' of modding to the writer, Antony, in an email. LOL. That's funny to bring it up again! Granted, it wasn't as funny as the Helen Keller line here. That s**t was funny. Dude, I did the classic movie-move of spitting water out. :hehe:

    Be sure to thank your wife for me for needing a new work keyboard now with that little gem! :D

    I appreciate all the kind words, everyone. Sincerely. And be sure to keep your eyes peeled! ;)

    Anytime Jeremy, anytime. ;)

    I almost could have lost a keyboard myself. Normally I'll sit down at the computer every morning with a big glass of orange juice, but was running behind, and didn't get one today. Close call!
