Weekend over :( Back to work - LOL

Don't you just wish a day had 36 hours :P Well, non work days LOL.
I had time to finish my palpatine window and walls. I have cropped 47 pictures and need to organise them in pagemill. They will be online tomorrow.

Also, Congratulations to Jeff Robertson, He is the first to have found all 30 hidden Niubniubs. Way to go Jeff!!!! So there you go, you now know it isn't impossible and it only took him 38 hours LOL

I've also been playing Eternal Darkness on my Gamecube. A really cool game. So if there is a lack of updates this week, blame Nintendo ;P



Sneak Previews - Palpatine's Office

As promised, here are the updates for Palpatine's Office. A total of 5 new pages and over 50 pictures will help you recreate the Hologram podium as well as the window and walls. Check out the Sneak Previews Dioramas Section. Bottom of Page 5 through Page 9 are where the new pictures can be found.


Where's Niubniub? clarifications

I've seen a few people think that Niubniubs that are part of logos like the image above or in the DVD Diary page are hidden Niubs. NO Top Page Banners of any kind are part of the contest. That would be too abvious :) Totals so far...144 entries, and 3 Qualifications. Congratulations to Brian Wachhaus and Grant McDaniel who join Jeff Robertson in the draw. And with NO extra help. I am very impressed. :)
