Haha; that's a good one... yeah, sadly true.

Not righteous, no... it's a good point and one we often forget in our
comfy caucasion existence.

So... you mean they're no advertising, like a Saturday morning kids
show is advertising in that it exists mostly for the purpose of selling the
connected toys and dolls and such?

Alas, meth is something that isn't found often in the wilds of Ohio...
it's very much pot territory here. And a damn lot of it, too.

I guess that's to be expected. But I'm glad to hear that it's not an
entirely dead idea.

No no; keep it at non-G2 because many platforms don't have G2 listeners
yet. But if you do get a chance to listen and compare, G2 is pretty
stunning. I hope they'll get players out for all platforms that support it

Have you tried live broadcasting via the server? May I? Also, do you
know anything about registering/installing servers with higher capacity,
uh, "without paying"? I wonder if there's a crack or something, or if that's just asking for it to use one.

Agreed; it is most unfortunate that it's so proprietary... but, it is a
method that allows many people to listen with a minimum of effort, and
that's something I like.

That's post-filtered; what I need is, well, time... See ya,
