Site Update – January 29th, 2014

Hello All,

Sorry about the lack of updates lately. I recently got back into WoW  and have been playing that a lot. I’ve also been quite busy at my day job and I’ve just been trying to relax in the evening. I also had some computer issues recently to sort through as well. But I am going to try to do better about posting more. Still in the evenings for now. Hopefully I’ll be able to resume daytime posting sometime soon-ish. Thanks for your patience & understanding and for reading.
