I’m aware that the sales page could provide more information so if you have any questions then – until Sunday (the 26th) – please @viperchill me on twitter, email me on hq @ viperchill.com or ask me a question on the ViperChill Facebook page. If you haven’t noticed from the amount of 4,000+ word articles I write, I want to keep the signal to noise ratio on this blog hugely in favour of signal. So, please understand that I don’t really like doing these little announcements as there’s not much you can get from them. Social Media
