I've been wanting to share these with you guys for a while now, but the timing is especially appropriate in the wake of Jeff's latest post. Jeff covered all the important benefits of Wolfire's live support. We have had our fair share of exciting visits from higher-ups at gaming news sites, awesome fans who want to give us fun ideas and people in search of interactive help for Lugaru and the Overgrowth alphas. While most conversations tend to be very productive, there are occasionally times when funny things happen. Without further ado, it is my pleasure to share with you my six silliest meebo moments:

Remember I'm usually available on meebo a good part of the day, every day of the week. So if you want to talk to someone at Wolfire come visit the live chat on our contact page and start typing. Even if I'm not online when you send your message, I'll see it the next time I sign on (but leave some contact info for me if you want me to follow up with you). Thanks for all the visits so far. I look forward to many future chats and kindly ask you not to prank me too much :) .
