Good to hear the feedback! Actually, this is my 2nd news post... dunno about taking over from Tweak'e... I think those news posts discussed a wide range of topics!

I'll keep trying to share what I find... but time is a bit of a thing for me as well... so as long as it doesn't get in the way of anything else, you can expect some more news from me :)
