Concerning my complaint about the lack of participation, I had some people call me impatient. They say I expect too much too soon from my blog friends. So, let's wait a little longer and see if there will be more submissions in the next days.

Update Jan. 22, 2011
I've posted my favorites here.
In addition, Marc sent me 3 more versions.
