Clarification please

Not all the games' source was released, particularly of the second batch - only Revenge of the Titans was to be released, and then only once 1.75m was raised.

Also, there were issues with releasing the source to Lugaru, when some jackass promptly built a version of it using all the original assets, pushed it through the Mac Store at $2 when the official version was $10...

But yeah, nice to see that some gamers were paying over the odds for things :)

World Maths Day?

Please stop already. Please show at least some sign of intelligence. Since there is no abbreviated form of mathematics that is acceptable in all English dialects, then when naming anything "World Anything Day" assure that when the "anything" is substituted with a word which is an international standard.

The day should be called "World Mathematics Day" unless it was intended just for the part of the world which speaks the British dialect of English.
