Spamming the Internet

Please write down here where you already sent the 789 newsletter to, posted the press text, spammed the internet about 789, etc. This might be important so that we don't do double work, e.g. posting the same text 5 times in the same forum :-)


This Pannel have been created to confirms our advancement and to don't spread the informations twice
