I forgot to mention Peter - I'm going on holiday for a week or two, I don't even think I'll have 4G.

So, not on Earth, then. We generally don’t get more than 1G of acceleration here. Still, a great opportunity for you to build up some muscles.

With 4G you might suffer a mental blackout, but without 4G you might suffer a media blackout. Tricky one.

I can't say I'm surprised. Saddened, yes, deeply disappointed and gutted for all those who've lost money on this, but not overly surprised.

Not surprised too.

Actually it had no chance to succeed when guys who should cooperate jumped down their throats and all this saga of accusations, legal fighting, trolling and hating on internet and so on began.

I hope that one day someone will describe it all objectively in probably some big book. I have my version of whole story but would like to see it confirmed.

A doesn't have B, C doesn't have B, therefore A isn't C. ← makes no sense.

Two of my messages have disappeared, accidentally or not, but I will not send the third time, for sure.
If we cant talk freely about this topic, then its better that it doesnt exist at all..
