I had a lot of questions that I attempted my finest to reply, but when I did not handle to reply yours, sorry. Well, after fairly a little bit of working, posting these posts, and taking suggestions into account, I’m happy to say that I’ll be rolling out the primary public beta, Plasmint zero.1, inside a week.
