  2. I like your ideas. Good Job.

  3. Triumph should definitely be there. But, you absolutely MUST post EVERY interview he conducts with us nerds. He did such a fantastic job with the Phantom Menace premier. I can only imagine how much fin he’d have with so many computer nerds (probably many, if not all, of the same ones from the premier)
