Glad to hear from you, Aaron. About the USplash thing, I think it's a
better idea to first get a good design concept for Dapper, freeze it
so it won't be changing every two weeks and then start producing all
the pieces relative to that concept. Other way we will end up with
probably some very nice artwork, but the pieces won't have an overall
meaning or coherent feeling. That's what I think.
