You finally did! Good to see you here pascal ;)

Anna i papapep, fa temps que ho heu anat fent i el resultat és genial.  us
veieu capaços d'adquirir el compromís de mantenir la web al dia? Us cal
ajuda o seríeu suficients?

En cap cas us deixariem sols. Es tracta de tenir algú que es cuidi de la
web i que faci notar els problemes per poder-hi respondre a temps entre
