I guess I don't really miss the SUN as much as I thought I would - I mean, I used to play as the sun a lot, but it is more fun when playing against humans (the bots apparently wear sunglasses). I do want to thank batmite for those odd powers - especially Remote View. That is pretty cool especially when I play catch the Chicken against a bot. Easy to find them when you know the map.
BTW, I also wondered where Link had been. Glad to read you.
