Time to ban The Ravenone Bot?
I don't think he/she's a bot, is it?
Just advertising the game, does anyone even read those posts? I just ignore...

I was impressed at how hard they seem to be working and how much detail they are posting, hoping for testers. Feel sorry for them keeping onposting here and not seeming to be getting any takers. They probably hoped there would be more gamers here.

Thanks Bea. It happened in the city. Fortunately neither of us were in the city today. It's a terrible thing when anyone who has control of a car can cause so much havoc. I know the area, used to regularly use that entrance to Flinders St. Would have been very crowded at the time this was done.

Calling previously unsummonable @Henry Dale
Before you come Downunder, and to avoid misunderstandings, you may need to learn the nuances of the word "MATE".

Whatever you say mate
Down here unlike in the UK, if you forgot someones name you can just greet them as 'Maaate!' and it'll be sweet.

Passing on a message from one of our top Forum friends @m3mnoch who sends his love and misses us but is over-the-top busy working in, on and around his new home every spare moment. ;D

Maybe we should all go and help him like this ?

So whatever happened to being able to put Youtube videos up in messages? Is that feature EVER coming back?

Christmas holiday! Hello everyone.

Work has been very stressful, and very intense. I wrote that we launched a huge set of software, knowing it had bugs, but feeling it had to get out there before we all jumped off of buildings. Well, it turned out to be buggier than we thought. Our top distributors were angry and frustrated, and my boss set me to running a daily meeting to tell them of progress in fixing things.

That was starting to calm down some, and the other day boss made a personnel change (not public yet, and we’re a public company, so even here I can’t say) and threw another project at me. It’s nice to be his go-to trouble-shooter, but then gain not so nice.

I’ll be around more over the next week, saying hi, catching up.

And i’m 500 words into my December story, so there’s that.

Anything I need to know? I hope everyone is well.

Merry Christmas Jmack, hope your work proceeds well. Nothing going on that I'm aware of.

Yay, Jmack is 'back' :D
Anything I need to know?
Not really, it's been quiet.
We have some good newbies, nice new/old threads to reply to, and I started reading Malazan... I think I'll be set for the next 10 books now ::) ;D

(anything in the post?)

Yes, indeedy. A very lovely surprise it was, too. Which also means that if I didn’t already, I have a certain address. Much mischief could ensue! ;D

Beyond the traditions of the holidays themselves, the cold and dark time of the year always invokes thoughts of those who are far away in distance and sometimes in time, as well. I hope it is warm wherever you are, in all the ways that surroundings can be warm. A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you.
