I'm at work and can't read this. What does this say?

I can't read this...(stupid work filters block most video gaming web sites):

What does it say about VGMaps?

All I can tell is, it starts with:
"I've made no secret of my love for VGMaps and their noble mission to render video game worlds in atlas-like detail. But I fear our friends at VGMaps have..."

Have what?  I can't see!  THE SUSPENSE!  0_0

I've made no secret of my love for VGMaps  and their noble mission to render video game worlds in atlas-like detail. But I fear our friends at VGMaps have just been fatally outdone by none other than Akihabara retro shop Super Potato. (Yes, them again.)

Super Potato has a long-standing tradition of adorning the walls of its building's public spaces with retro-themed artwork, usually of a Famicom-oriented nature. Their latest work pretty much gilds the lily, though: A massive printed mural of an entire Kid Icarus fortress stage.

Is this awesome? Yes. Yes, it is.

I'd never really considered creating a poster like this, even after holding on to Mark MacDonald's rad Super Metroid map poster for a year. But it's kind of an amazing idea to render a virtual space in the real world. Now I want to plaster my apartment walls with these.

I'm sure my fiancée won't mind.
Games I have mapped--Zombies Ate My Neighbors (SNES), Mario Party 3 (N64), Super Mario Bros Deluxe (GBC), New Super Mario Bros. (DS), Mario Kart DS (DS)

Yeah, I read about that yesterday. On the same subject, I've been meaning to get my Aria of Sorrow map printed out and laminated, but I know nothing about printing companies, local or otherwise. Hopefully, if I can manage to get it done with enough precision that individual pixels are still preserved somewhat, it might warrant some more attention from 1UP's Retro Gaming Blog...
Current project that are on hold because job burnout :
-Drill Dozer (GBA)
-Sonic 3D Blast (Genesis)
-Naya's Quest (PC)
