So the other day, I was on some website -- I can't even remember which, maybe it was Facebook -- and it was one of those sites that uses cookies or whatever to keep track of your interests and give you banner ads that are targeted specifically to you.

So I saw some of the new Dwarven Forge ads. "Neat!" I thought. I'm pretty much set on my DF collection at this point, can't say that there are any holes (other than the space I'm leaving for the city stuff!) But it's still neat to see ads for DF.

And then I realized -- say, that picture looks mighty familiar! Sure enough, it was one of mine. And I really got a kick out of that.

I've seen the ad a few times since then, it seems to randomly select between a few photos, only some of which are mine. I'm happy to see DF putting itself out there, something I feel like wasn't being done nearly enough before. And I'm flattered that some of my pics are being used (even if it wasn't intentional and it's just some random algorithm that happened to have picked mine, which seems just as likely). But I hope that my pics help bring some new customers in. It was a kick to see my pics in an ad when I was completely not expecting to.
