The interview linked above is from earlier this year and I'm not sure that Marc is still answering questions. However, he definitely won't see questions posted here in this thread. You could try reposting them at the bottom of the interview page (look for the "Leave a Comment" heading in red), or you can look at his answers to previous questions here: ... rch-qa.php
