Pensando aqui, nC#o estava afim de falar esse assunto via voip aqui do
Por isso nC#o liguei ainda...
Pessoal passou lC! em casa ontem, me levaram para conhecer as pessoas, nego
ta Amarok Zero...
Cara, pessoal da alta que quer o serviC'o, de uma advocacia..
Alguma chance de um encontro pessoalmente hoje?
Estou na esplanada atC) 18, posso ficar um pouco mais.
As 19 eles querem saber se jC! falei contigo e se vocC* e sua "equipe" tem
interesse no projeto.
