Fair enough, I'd rather read about dino-riders then singing pigs :D

bruce has mentioned that he keeps adding to his understanding of the RS and RS2, which is a relief actually, it's like the subject is alive and expanding just as the Universe is. The book,figuratively speaking (not referring to a future textbook on the subject), has not been written yet because there is always more to learn, thankfully. Dogma not need enter here.
