Tom vs. Bruce Update #19

Tom vs. Bruce Update #19.

Since the content of the update was sent privately to backers, I shall not share it except for this photo showing the stack of postcards.

While the postcards will be greatly appreciated, what I want are the articles, to be out, *now*.

Slept 16 hours...

Slept 16 hours...

I slept 10 hrs last night,
then 6 more hrs in the PM.

If I sleep anymore, I think I'll puke.
I think I can play UFO: Alien Invasion for a very long time tonight ;)
