My proposal did not screw yours up. I submitted my proposal before you submitted yours. And I was gone for a week, while you had plenty of time before nday 10 to figure out the incompatibility.

Yes, you could probably have cleaned up after yourself. At which point you'd get points for making the mistake, plus points for fixing it. Besides which, I'm ticked that you'd blame me for having a proposal that your later-submitted proposal didn't work well with.

I'll drop the point thing if you drop the "it's your fault" thing.

I apologize for making all this neccesary. I will confess that it is my fault - I should have read all those messages in my inbox. But this was during my '20 minutes a day' internet period, so I didn't read anything except what I absolutely had to.
