I'd like to think this is as much torture to make as it is to watch. We're all going through this together. Its like a water shortage.

My OCD absolutely loathes the random clicking Kessler does in this game. IT'S NOT THAT HARD TO CLICK IN A STRAIGHT LINE DAMN IT.

Yeah what the hell happened? Did he just leave since Matt and Steve were busy? And what did he want? Grr, so many unanswered questions.

Been enjoying this series. Almost started Farmville to help out... Then I realized I would be like an intern, and I just can't have that.
 
Looking forward to the next investor meeting.

Kessler's check in was hilarious. He seriously needs to buy a plow and seeder. Clicking each square sucks and eats up a lot of time.

They haven't decided yet. I'm hoping it will come up in the next "investor call" or whatever.
