    bgill did you play at all or just a diehard fan? typically takes a player (in america anyway!) to become a big fan :)

    awesome! i've played my whole life as well, but haven't been on an organized team since our second child was born last year... a few indoor things here and there, which are fun, but not quite the same... how you make the time to run a restaurant, dev for android, and play on a semi pro team (with two kids yourself right?) is very impressive!

    it is indeed beautiful, and i'm just glad there's another die hard fan out there :)

    Nice work, Wu,

    and thank you Bgill, I bought my droid for what came in the box but soon found out that the developers are what make it a sick device to own. I have a friend who just bought a droid and when he tried comparing notes his jaw dropped when I showed him everything this bad boy is capable of. Keep up the good work.

    I honestly can't believe my eyes right now. What I just read was the most In-depth, sought out interview I have ever read. Wuyanks, you asked all the right questions, nice job sir. To Brian..... I will never be able to put into words to tell you how much I really appreciate all that you have taught me. I know it takes time, effort and patience to be a mentor, (especially with me) and you have taken on the task with open arms. I am proud to say that one of my closest friends is someone I met over the internet. (Jentry-->:icon_rolleyes:<--Bridgette) I am thankful for the knowledge you share, and will always listen because I want to learn. It is truly an honor to be working with you on Green Metal Glass. Thank You for everything!
