How exciting. :) Though I'm not very good with designing in photoshop and stuff. I was just curious. :) Thanks for the clarification.

lol! I've never won any online contest before..

Except that $1k contest in poetry.com, and I'm sure I'm better at poetry than I am at page design on PS. :)

I'm the guy who codes pages from a mental design.. I don't go through templates. You know that better than most. :) So.. Not happening.

Not happening. :) I'm terrible with Designing Layout Templates. I do better coding pages directly. :)
