Re: Sequels strife

You know Elestan, I saw something you said earlier about how Brad seemed genuinely shocked that P&F didn’t want to work with him. I’m going to take that a step further, that the impression I’m getting from his emails and such is that he felt he had bought himself a lot of favor and credit with his f...

Re: Sequels strife

Apparently, SCO is off GOG again, something about P&F DMCAing GOG’s ISP? Anyone have any insight?
