GOAL REACHED!

Well, I continue to be impressed and humbled by the online G.I. Joe fandom who have come to my aid!  My camera died 6 days ago, and it took all of 5 days for the fans of this site to come together, pool their resources and really blow me away with their generosity.

This isn’t something that will become a habit, believe me.  In fact, I hope I never ever have to do it again, and I don’t plan on doing it ever again.  But I am pleasantly surprised at the positive responses I’ve gotten throughout.

Thanks to everyone for their donations, however large or small, they all made a difference, and I’m going camera shopping this weekend!

How’s about we have a little fun with this, too?  Anyone have any requests for the first pictures they want me to take with the new Fuji?  Drop a comment down below and let me know!

Thanks one and all.  You guys are awesome!

Layout issues in Internet Explorer

Someone made me aware last night that the top progress bar for the camera fund was causing issues with the layout of the blog in Internet Explorer.  My apologies!  I normally test all changes cross-browser, but for that minor change, I didn’t think it was necessary.  Apparently I was wrong!

Ah, well.  I got rid of the top progress bar and worked it into a smaller box on the left sidebar, so check that section to see where we stand on the camera fund.  Another HUGE thanks to everyone for their contributions!
