Thank you, dear test subjects, for your continued commitment.
Today, I am pleased to announce that the R.F.S. board has, aside from drastically raising their salaries, ordered a mostly functional Fuzzy to work on further improvements to the beta of Spacebase Startopia. These changes are as follows:
