Sam and Fuzzy Q & A: Bonus Edition
Got a question you want answered? Just drop me an email with "Q & A" in the subject line!
"What desktop wallpaper idea won the book club poll?" -Beckers
At the moment, "NMS Coat of Arms" has a solid lead. Team Fortress 2 parody is in second, and (astonishingly) three different options -- Marvel parody, Ninja Turtles parody, and NMS summer beach party -- are all tied for third.
Some folks still haven't voted (get on it, guys!), so theoretically things could change. All these ideas sound pretty fun to me, though, so I might actually eventually do the top two or three.
"Have you ever considered letting people just give donations for access to the bonus packs?" -Natalie
Good question! I created the bonus packs because I really wanted to provide an extra reward/thank-you to folks who were for dropping the cash on my books, which were a little more expensive to buy and ship than I liked because of their unusually massive size. Because of that, I wanted to keep the rewards exclusive, since they're part of the whole package.
But! As the years go by, we are starting to pile up a lot of previous bonus rewards... rewards that there are actually no way for people to obtain anymore. Which seems kind of silly, I admit! So here's the plan: when the new site design relaunches, I'll be creating a new "digital downloads" section. In it, folks will be able to buy the stuff from some of the older Fix Your Problem bonus packs, and hopefully some other goodies as well. It's in the works, anyway!
"Are the table-salt-and-antihistamine bullets Sam and Dev used to 1435">"simulate death-like conditions" the same ones Mr. Black used to fake Sidney's death? -Matt
"PS: Is it the drug also known as Juliex 2-40?" (Caught that on another read-through, BTW" -Matt (In a separate email, 3 hours later)
That makes so much sense, it must be canon! Guess it's a ninja trade secret.
(PS: I'm sure this wasn't actually the case, but I loved how the timeline of your emails implied that you completely re-read the entire archive specfically looking for more mentions of the drug.)
That's a wrap for this week, team! See you on Monday.
