I expect Neal and co to bring home an NWR Site Win.
Though he did promise me a Skylander write up a while back for a workshop he went to.

I didn't go to a Skylanders workshop. There was a talk at GDC that I was trying to see if there was good info about, but there wasn't anything that notable.

And I'm screwed. I'm missing P-Barn and JDizzle. I'm finished!
