Deviousness Award

If there were art-related superheroes, `diamondie would be the superhero for textmode art. She is, without a doubt, the uncontested queen of this medium, utilizing her power and undeniable talent to educate the community through tutorials and countless news features.

I could work 15-hour days despite the CFS/ME, thanks to LDN. I thought my nightmare was finally over. Until November 2011, when my pituitary was destroyed by sabotage. Hypopituitarism is one really shitty illness and has put me close to death more times than I can count. Also very

It's in Finnish, but there is an info page in English, too, and a book trailer which is Finnish only, but very visual, so it's worth watching even if you don't know Finnish. It has gathered many positive, even glowing reviews and
