@Silva. A few months? That's cool. I know how to be patient. I just have one tiny request. Could you hurry up and release it in a few hours, a few days at the most? It's not that I'm impatient. It's more that I want it NOW! A reasonable request. I'm certain you agree. Yes. Certain. Remember, I'm more than willing to have you work around the clock if necessary. It's really no problem for me. Yes. Really. =P
