Hey. Thanks for linking to my review of Birds of Prey. But it looks like there was a formatting error. My post shows up as a URL instead of a link. Also, there's a letter missing, so even if people copy and paste, they won't find it.

Here's the correct link:

Thanks again. :)

you're too quick! I'm still editing this post so it will be a while before everything's correctly formatted. Blogger never formats anything correctly the first go-round. Anyway, that's already been fixed but thanks!

Oops. Sorry. It showed up in my RSS feed, so I thought it was done. Anyway, thanks.
