  1. Just desire to say your article is as astounding. The clarity in your post is simply nice and i can assume you’re an expert on this subject. Fine with your permission allow me to grab your feed to keep up to date with forthcoming post. Thanks a million and please keep up the enjoyable work.

  2. Júniusban volt az első comment ami a 11. részt hiányolja? mennyi idő amíg lefordítotok egy részt? Már nem tudok várni pedig most fejeztem be. Esetleg meg tudnátok mondani, hogy lesz-e folytatás,(ha igen akk mikor?) vagy abbahagytátok? előre is köszi.
