Hurray Kurt. Congratulations for a very respectable finish against some outstanding competition.

Once again congratulations and please keep up the good work. I want to say thanks for all your contributions to the SM community. I have learned a great deal from your tutorials and following your progress on the CGTALK metalflesh challenge.
