I've been going through some... shall we say shady people at best. I've finally comissioned Akule to see what he and his lackeys can procure. If his progess continues to be as slow as it has been over the last year, I also have some contacts up in Boston I can arrange to have lunch with on my next day off, and discuss what I'm looking for. This last guy I've been dealing with over the last week just finally showed me the garbage he'd been making in mspaint, threw together in a .jpg image, and called a postbit. Let's just say the brushed steel he was claiming was all original looked like it was stolen off of the Quicktime player. I'd pull it up from my cache if the designs weren't atrocious. I just sent him an email today letting him know that his services are no longer required, and deleted his ftp account he was using on BF to upload all of his work. If any of you guys have any other suggestions, as I mentioned earlier, let me know. I have been sending emails out to various other companies in the meantime however, either receiving replies from shiver7 stating they're not taking any new projects for the time being, or receiving very delayed responses. Not something I'd want to get into if I ever had to get in touch with them hurridly. If any of the donators are interested in viewing the current projects or candidates for new template, I'd be happy to show you guys some URLs. Additionally you're more than welcome to throw in your own suggestions as well. You know how to contact me.
