    It was really a good night. Very informative. Added bonus of winning a copy of CS5. Emily will surely let you know when i start to use it. Haven't received it as yet.

    First off, thanks to everyone for coming out Wednesday night (we know how many alarmingly seductive other things there are to do in the summer!) and to Dan Rodney for a truly fun—believe it!—presentation.

    And secondly: huge congrats to Winart Foster for winning that copy of CS5 Design Premium! Winart, please check-in back here once it arrives & let us know how you're using it... >
