I asked your questions of him, but I told him to feel free to answer them or not. So there is no feedback for you. And I will be very glad to do the same with you. I would like to invite you to do an email interview for my blog. Do you agree? I believe, contrary some people, that we can hear both sides, going for it, not waiting in a cave to tell things they don't know. Regards, Thiago Luiz Ticchetti Listen to 'Strange Days...
