It’s the Episode 14 release party! You’re all invited. The party will be held in a 3x3 foot space that is centered on the point directly beneath you and extends roughly 7 feet upwards. The party starts as soon as you start the show and ends when it’s over. Don’t say we never gave you anything!
Thanks for sticking with us while we took a week to get our bandwidth issues straightened out. The increase in downloads convinced me to spend some extra money to upgrade our hosting service.
