HA! I knew it!

Ah, good times here this morning. In all seriousness, yes, it was designed from the ground-up. It's sleeker, a bit more aggressive, but doesn't have that "tacky aggressive" look. You'll see what I mean soon.

It's not for looks at all, unless we're talking about ugly looks! tongue.gif

It is however, a great performer with a good layout.
