I hope the FTP problems are figured out, and the Toa of Igor Chapter Two will start Tuesday.

In the meantime…

The Dork Tower Haiku Kontest turned out far better than I could have imagined. There were many more entries – and grand ones, at that – than we had room even for honorable mentions. So, it looks like this may have to become an annual thing. (If you want to find out about this and other semi-regular contests, just join me on my Livejournal spot, or at my Facebook pad).

Anyway, cutting to the chase (drumroll, please), we have a winner…and several awfully good runners up. And one not so good, but it had to be mentioned anyway.
