As aggrivating as it was, that 3-ish week break between Episodes that I had to suffer through actually did some good. Gave me time to get caught up with everything else I'd been neglecting, AND get ready for the new college semester that just started.
Now that I'm slowly starting Episode Two, lets see if the promised improvements and challeges actually materialize. If not, its time to put the horse outta its misery, so we can get around to beating it. Badly.
