Well, I see I'm the first to say it (at least in the TM board), but congratulations to LDA!

In case you're wondering what the heck I'm talking about:

Let me be the second!

Congratulations to Seumas and the rest of the LDA team - I'm glad to see you've been justly rewarded for all your hard work!

Cheers,

Chris

I'm surprised it took so long to decide on LDA. It didn't take me more than a few minutes.

Thanks everyone

Those of you who are regulars on this board will have noticed a drop off in posts from Seumas.

Seumas is a fighter and never wanted to be given special considerations, but now that the IGF and GDC are over, [and it was obvious to everyone there, how ill he is...] he has decided to make it public knowledge.... he has been fighting a battle with Hodgkin's Disease [...a cancer of lymph nodes...] these past 3 years, and things have been rough since last summer.

Tread Marks was delayed [...with a 14 month development cycle and Seumas the only programmer, it was still an amazing achievement...] because of this, postings were missed and email went unanswered. Features were left out of the game and add-ons remain unfinished.

Seumas is an amazing young man...just turned 21. He has done all his programming in C since his diagnosis. This, all while having chemo and radiation therapy.

We are trying to get things stabilized.... as we try to reverse some recent complications of treatment.

He hopes to be back in the swing of things soon....

Thanks...
