Happy new year, gang. This year, our Christmas break has coincided with two sets of departures: Pip and I are in Atlanta for the next week covering the Hi-Rez Expo, and the day we return is the day that Tom F heads to Seattle to start his three-months-give-or-take of working on Heat Signature from Valve’s offices (!)

With that in mind, we’re not going to have an episode for you this week. The Crate and Crowbar will return on Friday the 13th of January, accompanied by various future-of-the-podcast-type announcements (only good things.) See you in ten yea… days! Ten days.
