Reader comment: I may be wrong, but wasn't "Build it Yourself" one of the booklets in the FANTASTIC set of I think 7 booklets you put out back then called "ventrilo-pedia"? I had that set and wish I still did! SO much wonderful stuff in those covers! Any chance of a reprint of ventrilo-pedia? I'd buy one for SURE! Keep up the GREAT work!
