Thank you so much for all the submissions received for Phat 08 (Deadline being this Saturday)!!! Dave and Selena have been swamped with submissions and they will work through them as fast as they can. They will not be making any announcements until the end of July at the earliest because they want to take the time to check every submission out properly. Please wait to hear back from them as constant quizzing will just slow them down. As long your email was included in your submission you will definitely get a reply, either way!..Read the full post..
