We’ve been through the washer…again!

Well, it was about time wasn’t it. Lets be brutally honest here, about:blank looked like it had been well and truly slapped in the face with the ugly stick in the past few months. After the site broke a few months back, i rushed out a new template to get the site up and running over night and never really returned to it to refine it. Naughty me. I hope you like the new look. I feel its a lot cleaner and a lot easier to read than...

Server Upgrade

Hi All, Its that time again where about:blank needs a good going over. Im moving it to another server this weekend.
