      Thanks Alasdair! I am glad to know it hasn't been stolen. No rush, I've waited all this time. I'm just psyched to have this on my shelf to make all my friends jealous. And only the closest friends will have a chance to sniff the cellophane and smell the fresh printed poultry perfume.

      Hi Sterling! Sorry, I was hoping to write the 'DVD Shipping!' update at the start of the month, but there have been delays with the printing. But they're *nearly* ready. So your DVD has not got lost, and you'll hear from me again soon...

      so did we get an official ship date on the physical copies yet? :) I seem to remember them going out or planned to go out soon and I'm worried a pie rat may have stolen mine...

      Finally got back home and started the game. Great stuff so far, congratulations. I hope you get more positive coverage like that, you deserve it.

      Even the Space Quest Historian. Which liked Fran Bow very much! Which I got Stendahl Syndrom from! Holy mother of cows, I need to let that pirate woman on my screen ASAP.
