Thank you very much for your work in Daphne and your researches in this area, it's much appreciated. Thank you also for coming here tell us about it. It's really comforting to know that something is being done about it.

I'd be very happy seeing these new captures released, no matter if it will be replaced or not. It seems to me that, being these captures already done, releasing it wouldn't be the hardest part anyway. But, of course, it's not my work, it's not my call, so I wont even pretend I feel entitled to anything, but damn, that would be so cool.

Thanks again.
