I'm busy working on a MOC right now, so I won't be able to leave in-depth comments explaining my votes for this round. Sorry about that. I'll try to leave a more detailed comment once the round is over. Permalink

No prob. I could probably guess what you'd say anyway ;) Permalink
Bad news, the uploader is refusing to work at my house. I think it has something to do with some new software we just installed. If our judges can't grant me an extended deadline (assuming it doesn't start working before midnight), I'll accept that and take the defeat. But it would be appreciated... very much. Sorry about all this. Permalink
