Herr D delivered a rant to me this morning, and I was somewhat surprised. He's usually of good humor. I'm still not even sure what he was mad about. . . . yeah, okay?

Obviously underwater species could not possibly have much in the way of paper, and intramatter species couldn't have fragile media, like the--

You are under explicit instructions not to discuss those particulars until further notice.

Stupid gag order. Right. Thanks, Shelob. I've always been a sculpt / carve kind of guy: how 'bout you all?
