>> it involves time

... or money.

maybe we revisit the kickstarter (or something else) idea brought forth by
jonathon a few years ago and just pay someone to do it. to me it seems like
1) none of us really have any money (im just assuming here we are all poor
artists) and more importantly 2) none of us really have any time and those
that do might not have the skills.

OR maybe we have another PDCon (remember that?) to get amped up and pump
something out....
