    I profusely apologise to everyone, I was not able to finish my gift today because of life but I will try and finish it tomorrow and on Saturday i will make sure to send it. @Darksakul I will send you the tracking number then. I did cheat and sent part of my gift through Steam so it should have already arrived :smiley:

    Finished my gift in the few hours that I had today. Tried to make it to the 24 hour USPS location but found out its a 23 hour location because they were closed. Unfortunately, I'm flying out tomorrow to go to a graduation ceremony. I'll have to ship it Saturday. Don't taze me, bro.

    I figured it was too close to your deployment. Or I would have messaged you about it sooner.

    Sorry for the delay on getting my package shipped out. Leaving now to drop it off. My last part of the present took some time arriving and I had to deal with being out of town for NEC. Managed to up the ante with the extra time so it worked out for the best.

    I just received my ss gift today!
    lJrTkP1.jpg

    Nice work on the pop out card. They are the best.

    Blokus is a fun game. My brother owns it and now I do. He's a lot better than me, but now I can practice!

    Srirach2go. Can't leave home without it!

    Legos are always welcome in my home. I'll have to bring home my Lego collection from my mother's house when my son gets older and can start playing with them.

    I love the screw driver so much. You have no idea how useful this is to me. It has 6 retractable bits (2 flat, 2 phillips, 1 star, and 1 square). I frequently need to switch between phillips and flathead so this is convenient. I will NEVER let anyone borrow this tool when I'm at a tournament. They can use my other screwdrivers.

    I'm excited to try out a cordless dremel. I know it could never replace my 4000, but the idea of dremeling where ever I want sounds too good to pass up. I'll need to buy a second battery so nothing slows me down while waiting for the recharge.

    BEER! YES! Holy cow this one looks like it's going to be tastey. Ale with cocoa nibs and holiday spices! Plus puns! I feel like they are missing out on making a stout version and call it Yule Shoot Your Eye Stout.

    Thank you Santa Nendo!

    *The return address looked familiar since I've delivered to that address before.

    You caught me, you crafty devil. I hope you like the beer. It's a local brew from Karbach who just sold out to Busch. That means you will likely be able to get it in your area in the near future. That screwdriver has been really handy for me too. It's what I bring to my local weekly along with a set of allen wrenches jic anyone needs quick repairs. About the cordless Dremel....I found out before shipping it that the battery seems to have crapped out. There is also some corrosion one one of the contacts that will need to be cleaned. I'm looking for a battery for it and will send it as soon as I find one. Merry Xmas, Gummo. Thanks for all of the work you've done in the community and for me personally. Glad that I can bounce ideas off of you and get some troubleshooting help when I'm stumped on something. I really appreciate it.

    And one of the coolest thing I received this year:

    Shin Rowlf

    I'm framing this. I may send it to Art to have this etched onto a panel. Mr. Hombre, thank you sir

    Thank you for the kind words. I wish I didn't procastinate on drawing it, otherwise I would have redone if and fully replaced Akuma's head with a circular cute looking Rowlf head (kinda like one punch man style http://i.imgur.com/ZlPpDck.jpg ). I tried to combine the two and wasn't completely happy with the result but I still think it came out cool!


    This is my gift from Darksakul
    hbl6Toj.jpg
    DcR66Ym.jpg

    The SNES was a COMPLETE shock! I've always wanted one and when I saw it I had such a huge nostalgia moment thinking about myself and my cousins playing on one as kids. I can't wait to try out Street Fighter on it with the SNES pad - it'll feel so cool I think seeing how the transition was made from arcade to retro console.

    I haven't been home much since I've been busy with work and some projects I've been working on. So I haven't given this great gift justice yet! I've yet to boot up the SNES or eat the cookies! But I'll be back in my house for the week on Monday so I'll get to it then! I also can't wait to use that Sakura keychain and read the comic book. Thank you so much Darksakul - I love the gift. You went above and beyond on it.

    So many memories playing the SNES version of SFII. You'll like it. Looks like the Super Famicon version too, if my eyes don't mistake me...

    As for the pic, if you ever feel like redoing it, feel free. I'm good with 2 pictures (but I'm good with this one)

    Yup its the Japanese version of the game in an American SNES. Which means that Darksakul snipped the lil plastic bit in the cartridge slot that prevents the cart from fitting into the slot. He region unlocked it!

    Yep, All SNES and N64 Consoles that comes by me usually get the same treatment.


    The Rear power jack also been replace since they come loose too often (and that particular SNES had a broken power jack). Hence the custom AC adapter.
    In retrospect I should have rewired the SNES to take a standard AC/DC adapter instead of rewiring the adapter for the repaired SNES.

    The cookies (I know spenzalii recognize them) are a local to Maryland.
    The Fudge frosting is very thick, so I am not sure if you would like them or not. They can be hit or miss for some people.
    But there not seen much outside the area so I figured I would send them out.

    Also when you get the chance, try the Old Bay seasoning. It's awesome on fries, in tuna salad, seafood, ect.

    Also since spenzalii loved the Drawing, I think its safe to say the spenzalii challenge has been completed for this year.


    In other news.
    Those who have shipping delays, if you contacted me you are fine. You know who you are and you are OK-ed.

    Those who have not shipped yet and did not contact me about it need to do so ASAP and send me a email, PM or other message with a tracking number, please.

    Is Old Bay sold across the USA or is it a regional MDV thing? I'm used to seeing it around.

    I think its a more of a regional thing, but it can be found more and more outside the area as time goes by.

    Old Bay is kinda regional. The further west you go the harder it is to find, if it's available at all. A lot like Utz potato chips. Regardless, Old Bay is awesome. Obviously it's great on seafood, but it works surprisingly well on chicken wings as well
