News for Tuesday February 26th 2013


So I’m sure you’ve noticed the new site design by now, at least I hope you did! yes it’s finally done, I had to re-do it all from scratch after I had it all done the first time, so that’s what took me so long getting complete. It’s done now and that’s what counts, so I can get back to posting the news and reviews, more time to focus on that! One of the new features I’ve added is a table of contents on longer articles so they’re not one huge long scrolling page. The TOC is also on the news posts as well now so you can just jump right to the section you might be interested in, so that’s something neat I think.  So it’s time for the news from our friends around the world, read on…
