Good and good. :o) I still only have a small grasp of all the new(er)
technologies that will be making their way into Dapper, but they all
sound good to me. I also want to point out to you (and/or Cliff if he
reads the list) that I think all the artwork thus far has been
outstanding. I was just throwing in my highly medicated $.02.

You would have gotten more bonus points for quoting an Adult Swim
character, but the Simpsons is acceptable. :o)

Since we didn't get anything done in time for Breezy (except maybe
Andrew's icons, I keep missing him online), if we make friends with a
MOTU, would there by any problem with the team putting together an
unofficial "extra artwork" package in universe? Again, just curious.
