Hi
Last issue of the week! Hope you all have a lovely weekend. Unrelated, I didn't forget about the referral rewards stuff! I just need a weekend (or maybe it is related? JK not this one) or two to throw something up as incentives. As an aside, if you've ever thought about throwing up a website to mess around with stuff, I'd totally recommend it. There's something nice about having some eyeball space on the web you can experiment on or share with others.
