Re: spoon-discuss: Re: spoon-business: Bank Actions

Sorrry to write so late, I am currently 
moving to Boston and am writing this 
on a hotel webTV thing.  Iwould  not 
recommend it.

I did not realize that I had to actually 
restate the Bankers point totals inorder 
to complete the transfers of points 
between the bank/Player.  All 
outstanding debts owed to the Bank 
are ordered transferred.  Hopefully this 
will work

If anyone needs a roommate in Boston, 
let me know!  Iwill get a real computer 
on Monday.
