Omid David Tabibi was live on national television and had during my game
falcon-diep to leave for hours to give the television interview.

There was every day reports about it and the national newspapers brought daily
news about it too.

However i guess you didn't notice all that as you were doing your excellent job
as an operator there.

You just see how big an event is if you regurarly walk around :)

Of course i lost masses of time by doing that, but well that's a small price for
the extra pleasure an event gives!
