  9. Hey, this is Len posting on Rob's account (because I never actually made a forum account). Yeah, this was recorded a while ago and I told him it was fine. I didn't want to have to make someone re-record the outro or anything. I edited it so if I'd had a problem with it, obviously, I could have done something about it. Appreciate the concern though!
