In this Update - As most regular visitors know, this is principally a hobby website for me. I fit it in between family and work commitments, but with the large amount of time I've commited to The New Wave, this space has suffered some what. But I havent given up. Actually, quite contrary, my programmer and I are working on some site improvements, we hope to release soon. I also have lots of material on the back burner, so I will start chewing on that soon and probably be back with a full update over the summer.
