News Until There is News: March 2009

A new spic-and-span redesigned site is in the works. Until then, any and all news (whether it's worthy or not) will be posted on my blog. Plans are in the works, contracts and schemes are being negotiated, but the hope is that a tweaked version of my website will be up by the summer time.
