Fergus, <p> <ol> <li>We no longer have any contact information for JR Schmidt. <p> <li>Spiderball appears to be an abandoned game -- Schmidt never did any of the additional material for it he apparently had intended to. <p> <li>While Paranto might not win in court on this matter, ending up in court costs money. The CVP has better uses for its money. </ol> <p> Mind you, if Schmidt shows up and says he wants Spiderball changed back, I certainly will. But this is really small stuff, and life is too short to sweat the small stuff.
