    Tom is kind of making a big deal out of nothing…he’s gonna start a backlash if anyone.

    Isn’t is a bit late for Agora to pick up a disbributor for a 2009 release? Perhap it will be picked up for a 2010 release. What are you thoughts – Guy or Kris?

    Jilda: Which is why I don’t plan on addressing it much further. :)

    DHE: I don’t think it would release this year if it found a buyer.
