I posted this from my sub main e-mail account trying to get people's
attention. If I said 'we have a fix' or something like that, it would show
comercial intentions- that we do not have. this is free, and totally
pro-bono. Also, it is PivX's, but not mine- its the brainchild of a few of
the dev team guys (silly monekys).
I can also blame insomnia and temporary neurosis after using my thinkg33k
cafine soap! :)
