As some of you may have noticed, I've been uploading more photography than maille recently. That's because I've been lazy and haven't made maille recently, but carrying my camera around is easy. Don't worry, I'll be making more eventually. I'm not pretending I'm a good photographer or anything here, just trying to get better, I know the quality of my maille is above that of the pictures at this point. Hopefully any learned skill will carry over to making the maille pictures look better too.

This update is mainly to remove the giant wall of text though.

Man, who are you? :) 
I've seen your Starpoint Gemini 2 site, that is awesome, more accurate then wiki. As a part of LGM team I can just say thank you! We really appreciate that and we didn't even knew about it till today. That's a damn fine work! We will feature it on Facebook and Twitter in a few days. :)

Feel free to use our logos, art and headers if you wanna give it a cosmetic makeover. :D (On the bottom left side you have Press Kit download). Of course, you don't need to if you wanna keep the page ultra fast. :)

Thanks! I was a little worried going in about stepping on toes with IP since I'm essentially taking all the game data and making it available online for people who haven't bought it, so hearing from LGM officially about you guys liking it is great. My day job is as a mechanical engineer in a large corporation working on stuff that's usually marked proprietary and export controlled, so I'm cautious by nature about anything that a lawyer might take issue with. ;) I appreciate the offer of the fan kit, but I am trying to keep it fast loading so I'll probably just grab color schemes from it and stay away from images where unnecessary (that's where my engineer side overrides the creative side).

I had been holding off on publicizing my site it since it's still very much a WIP, but apparently it's usable enough for people to enjoy already :) - I hope people are understanding when I'm playing around and break things temporarily in the process. Cheers!
