Today the site is officially one
month old. After seeing EQ the first time in December, I never could
have imagined that only a few months later much of my time would be
dedicated to building a website for it. This is the impact it has
had not only on myself but many like me. Thank you once again Kurt
Wimmer, cast, and crew for creating Equilibrium; for giving us
something extraordinary disguised as mere entertainment. I must also
express my appreciation to all of those who have assisted and
contributed to making this site so gratifying. Your contributions and
comments add character, imagination, and depth, thank you. -
