I actually spent about 15 minutes staring at the screen debating with myself which option is the best course of action. Looking forward to the next one.

Good, because I'm going off you're votes for the next one. :) I'm surprised more people didn't consolidate, I sure would have but it looks like guerrilla tactics it is, I'll post the next one here at 1:20 or so.
