  • Thanks Aaron I missed the chat Due to my Mum Being in the Hosp. This gives me a run down of things discussed with out dealing with reading thought the whole chat. Good news is I got the Laptop back, don’t know when I can be on. Looking Forward to all the newness DCG has planned for SGR down the road.

  • Alternative language support being developed. <— R&D stage at best… not being looked into to implement at this time.

    Maddog I hope your Mum comes out of the hospital soon, you have my best wishes.
