    Hey Rothgar , thanks for another great podcast! I was just wondering. if you are going to publicly post the top 3 winners of the wallpaper challenge? I think that would be cool so everyone would know the finalists 🙂 Once again thanks for all you do, keep it up! 🙂 I really wish i could donate but i’m so poor right now 🙁

      I am going to post the finalists along with the rests of the wallpapers when we record the next podcast. I have some stats I want to get together before I post them, so for now please just wait in suspense. 🙂
