Justin,

Hmmm... well, that explains why I thought that much of this was too
good to be true. Derek (Licciardi) and I went through most of the
sites FAQ one day and I remember saying things like "Yea this is
possible" and "this would be cool" BUT our consensus was... that it
wasn't going to happen anytime soon; based on current and near
future technology... oh and a little item - cash :^)

*Chuckle* When I first found the site, I placed a link to it on my
web site in the list of MMPORPGs that are in development... I'm not
really sure if I should take it down or leave it... Here's to
dreamers (And I say this in an un-sarcastic tone).
