Will do - I think what I've decided to do is make a written dated record of what I was accused of at this meeting by this guy, because there were a couple of allegations that were simply false - for example that I was using the function malloc() in the game code instead of the companies memory allocation functions, which isn't true, and by doing that I was affecting the Sony Technical Requirements and the game would fail. (What's it called? I could do with putting the official name on this Doc, is it the Sony T.R.I., or T.R.C. or something?)

I could note down in the same document the thigns about the #including, compile time, namespace issues, the resultant compiler crash output with a date etc.
