    ...a friend of all of us.

    He set this site up the very same day the 3DS was first announced, and has tirelessly worked away at it to make it the very best 3DS site in the world. He's put countless hours into making it a great place to get both your 3DS fix as well as to connect with fellow fans of the upcoming autostereoscopic handheld. He pays for the hosting, all the awesome contests, and the software that is now allowing me to post this message. And today's a special day for him...

    Happy birthday, Adam!!

    You've been awesome to both chat and work with ever since you inducted me into the team back in June. Working with you never feels like a chore, and every step of the way has been a great one. Not only do I have a position here that is the envy of many of my friends, but I'd also like to express my thanks for supporting and motivating me in some of my more personal endeavours (particularly also for having the patience to read through and reply in detail to my lengthy, often 2000+ word emails :)). Without you, I wouldn't be where I am today. I hope this is only the beginning of a long friendship to come.

    I've decided to commemorate this occasion by drawing a picture.

    [​IMG]

    Adam's the red Yoshi, and I'm the blue one. Adam received a free red review 3DS from Nintendo, incidentally on his birthday and matching his website's theme (as well as his skin colour as a Yoshi), and now cannot rip himself away from it. I'm trying to wish him a happy birthday and give him a cake, but he's too engrossed in the little red box of wonders to even notice me. :p I hope you like it!

    So, that concludes my little speech. I'm just doing my part to make your day as awesome as it can be, Adam. You really deserve a day to just have some fun and relax for all the blood, sweat, and tears you've put into this site. Of course, you're probably going to spend your time with your friends and family in real life, so you might not even see this message here for a while, but know that we all want nothing but the best for you!

    ~Peter D.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY ADAM!

    I would draw something (I love drawing), but I don't have a clue how to get a picture from the desktop to here, since you have to have a URL. Maybe I can. . . umm. . . well, I don't have a clue on that, either! I know the very least I can do is thank you for making this site; thanks so much for making it, since I have (perhaps unwillingly; now I can't wait for it to come out, and there won't be any surprises) learned a bunch about the 3DS! How's the 3DS, and do you get to keep it? If so, then maybe I should make a site about the Wii 2. . . . XD

    You just select the file in the box, press the upload button, and then copy and paste the "direct link" that comes out, if you've got msn or skype pm me and I can explain it step by step :)

    Lol, I've already done that, as you can see in my siggy.

    Adam didn't really get a 3DS for his birthday; I made that scenario up for the sake of a funny picture.

    Sorry this picture is so small, but I deviously found a way to get the picture's URL by going to TinEye and searching for that image, then right clicking it and pressing "View Image", then copying the URL! I went through a lot of trouble to find a way to get it, and I wish I could get it bigger. . . .

    http://www.tineye.com/query/ebfb8cfc2f079251d8b6703fa7053378869641a7
    Click the link. . . .
    This is just a quick sketch (took about five to ten minutes); if I did a better one, it would take a couple days!

    Personal data is cropped out for obvious reasons!

    Uhm... but if you upload on imageshack and you get tha URL from the "direct link" area, you should get the picture as large as it really is

    It was to point out that it's quite obvious, since you get the giant "UPLOAD" button on the home page, without having an account xD

    What is Picture Push? :confused: Ahytys, I've never been to Imageshack, that's why I said that.
    Here's the picture:

    I see the next Internet meme. *bookmarks pic*

    Wow, great work on that. I think you made the stitch lines on Mario's sleeves too prominent, and the M on his hat too small, but other than that, it's amazing. You should put it on deviantART.

    Yeah, like I said, it didn't take long to draw; also, the brim of his hat is small and his left hand is fat. . . .
