I've never known how to pronounce that word! :D

Oh and yes, I was the one who found the sheet to skool's monkey. It's from Monkey Puncher! http://sdb.drshnaps.com/game.php?game=705&view=2

Shouldn't the Redux in Chrono Redux be pronounced as "redo?" I can't help but think it's a double entendre that's mispelled... as "deux" is the number 2 in french.

I'd be happy to have you both, when the right topics come along! ^_^

NickyP at 1:08PM, Nov. 30, 2011

I wouldn't mind guesting if it was a topic I could talk about. Though I'm one of those guys that has an opinion about anything... :P Anyways, let's listen to the QC now..

I'll need to test my mic to see if it works though

RPGgrenade at 4:08AM, Nov. 30, 2011

I'm totally willing to be a guest as long as it's something i can talk about XD

That's sort of unfortunate Gene... See, she's a special guest, not a regular now. She doesn't want to do these regularly and I do not want to try and force her either. She IS happy to be a special guest if she's available though. So for future Quackcasts Skool may or may not feature, and I'll probably routinely rotate through a bunch of other guests if I can organise the times.

Makes a big difference having skoolmunkee back.
