There's a new Challenge on the StrataCafe: "A Name You Can Trust".

As a medical illustrator, Mike has been doing naturally scary images for years. His portrayals of the human body (and various "deviations" from there) might make the weak hearted feel a little faint.

Mike upgraded to 3.9 to make sure he had a jump on using the latest in Strata technology. Check out Mike's StrataCafe profile - just make sure you have some lights on when you go.
