haha thanks for the kind words, friends.
Pretty sure I haven't read half of it myself either for now. It already took me for ever collecting that and the pictures on the other thread, I'd still be copy-pasting stuff now, had I read those! rofl
Will calmly do tomorrow, cause right now my eyes and bwwainz ain't exactly working any good. Cheers!
