Site Updates.

Boy have I been busy! 

The site has been updated with an updated template, video and news feeds, and of course a new 'archive' module you can now get to from the top of the page. 

I am also letting everyone know, I will be expiring articles after a year on the site. The DB's are getting quite large and I need to start managing that a bit better. 

Enjoy the new...er...'stuff'... I have been working on. 

Now, who wants to send me cookies for all the hard work I have done? 

Later - Dave.
