Kaugustino: Being italian with a short temper, though IRC does teach paitence if your around long enough. Lol.

uniquec: Lol, do you believe then that patience is a virture?

Kaugustino: Yes I do, to bad others couldn't pick up on that :P

uniquec: And then would you say that you consider yourself virtuous?:)

Kaugustino: Somewhat I guess.

uniquec: So does your staff tend to get you mad easily then?

Kaugustino: Nah, I have great staff.

uniquec:They listen to you most of the time?

Kaugustino: Yep.

uniquec: They aren't tempermental and like to have random moments of difference of opinions?

Kaugustino: Any group will, but we work it out and move on. We don't really clash. I say it helps having older staff.

uniquec: They tend not to be as childish. So what would you like others to know about you that they might not know?

Kaugustino: Nah they are not childish. People need to know that us fansubbers (or DVD groups like we are) do this for the love of anime. The occasional thank you is nice. We do our best, mistakes happen, but being childish about it and complaining about speeds or us being slow on stuff doesn't help.

Kaugustino: For those that can, buy the anime. Support the people making it.

uniquec: Parting words of wisdoms?

Kaugustino: What I said above sums it up nicely.

uniquec: Thank you for doing the interview despite you thought I wanted to be interviewd for staff :)

uniquec: We would like to thank Kaugustino for doing this interview, we shall blame a certain friend of his who did not quite explain how things work. He was gracious enough to do this despite originally say no and was talk into doing this to appease his friend (who by the way will not do an interview but has been solicting others to do them :p).
