From: Barefootwanderer Subject: Red dwarf quote
in side quest, you mentioned you’d forgotten you’d asked the question about the red dwarf acronym – I have to confess that until I listened to that episode and heard my name mentioned and my answer – I’d forgotten I’d answered it too lol.
A pleasant surprise, had me smiling all the way to work that morning, thanks for the mention.
Love the podcast, it’s consistently one of the best and most entertaining gaming casts I listen to (and you are in very good company there) it’s nice to hear brits doing a good gaming show. Keep up the good work
Greetings Lady and Gents!
To save myself from writing a long email, I’ll simply link you to a recent post I wrote on the subject of subscription MMO’s and how they need to end
Hopefully you’ll find an answer in there, or at least something to talk about ^ ^
