Silence in the face of adversity is the father of complicity and collusion, the first cousins of conspiracy..

(From DGR #112)

The colors are bright and cheerful enough to light up the page in any album.
Doug mentions that the simplified level now contains 448 individual color values and that 129 color names have been used, a study in itself.

Several sections of the on-line Complete Deegam Machin Handbook have been updated so some who own the disc version may want to trade in their copy for the latest updates.

Unlike Scott and Gibbons the numbering system invented by Doug and used by the CDMH remains the same and new issues fit in without changing earlier issue's numbers and locations.
