Richard, remember Activision hires Ryan to port the exe and other files 
so they run on the Linux OS.  Ryan is a business man and I would imagine 
he would like to continue any further business practices with Activision 
on good terms.  He can not comment or should comment on this. 

It's simply not his fault, or doing.  All we can do is appreciate all 
the things Ryan has done above these contracts with Activision (release 
zero day patches for us)

Thanks Ryan, wish you got this contract, here's looking that you get the 
Dice contract for BFBC2 and BF1943.
