    Well, I recognise the text as Aurek-Besh (Star Wars). The top one has the right number of letters for "Black Hole". If I'm feeling especially geeky later, I may dig out the alphabet sheet I've got and translate.

    hmm... seems like most production on this will be halted till around the middle of november, as the Adobe PS Cs4 trial isnt coming out until around then, and I need some filters from photoshop to be able to make the main part of my entry, and i have tried about all the 50 other possible things, and nothing has worked


    i have like one more thing to try, but i cant try that yet....



    oh well, i guess ill just work on the overall look if it while i wait.
