although movies brought me to this scene, they are only a small part of my life. it seems nowadays i have my fair share of things to do (between a husband, two young boys, and my work).

"Yes, thanks for ghostery, that one's very useful.
"While Knalds and Baff are perfectly correct - NF is far from perfect and things don't always work like they are supposed to. So don't be surprised when the wrong version arrives in your mailbox.
Often, at least in my experience,…"
"Oh, I liked it well enough, just wanted more of what he didn't cover, and less of most of what he did. New stuff is always interesting, and there was plenty of that in this doc.
