    At least Hoban Showed up… (No disrespect to the other guys)…
    Let’s see how this convergence of ideas shapes the meta.

  • don()shinobi

    Any idea what Meow Machine OTK is?

    • Adam Jerrett

      Qliphorts. Meow is Cat (Trampolynx), Machine is the typing and OTK is what they do

    • Sunami King

      lol i had the same question

  • Jessie Pinedo

    Hoban wants ARG to go to Los Angeles / Southern California! Cmon ARG make it happen, at least once a year!
