  16. Brad,

    Tried to reach you last week regarding “Free Stuff Thursday” comment contest.

    Instead of comments like “would be a great birthday present for me” or “my Aunt Tillie lives there and I haven’t seen her in years”, why not ask for a comment with a suggestion how to help the orphange mentioned in Scott’s blog, or at a minimum ask for a comment including a personal Photoshop tip or shortcut.

    In other words make us “work for it” – it’s still free and I’m sure Pshop brainpower will come up with great suggestions for the orphanage.
