    Congratulations to the winners! All good stuff.

    For those who appreciate Minim, the demo is now a styleswitcher version which is cleaned up and more minimal. Because the variety of options could be confusing, more detailed instructions are included with the download

    Peter, the white style is so much better (at least for me)! Great work. Photo pullouts on the side are awesome.
