I was just giving you a hard time.  ;-)  "AOL User" is an ongoing joke,
because 7 years ago when AOL first linked up to the internet, it
unleashed a vast horde of clueless newbies onto Usenet and pretty much
overwhelmed sensible discussion for quite a while.  So it's sort of a
duty now for 'netters to give AOL'ers a hard time.  ;-)

Anyway, what Peter said is correct; we're not to the point where we've
got a polished product to use for creating games.  However, as you've
noticed, we're a welcoming bunch and there's plenty of fun to be had in
this phase of development, too.
