Thank you so much for listening! 😊

And, yeah, I know how you feel: I too want to keep caring but it sure feels like going against the tide of “modern” web development. 😔

Thank you so much for making Scribe!

  • The Wilderness Yet
  • Tom Delaney
  • Paddy Egan

All great albums!

The other one was Cormac Begley’s excellent “B”.
