Sorry to go about it, but I"ve still got the bloody man flu! This is now no longer a joke and I"m an official, card carrying member of the "I"m sick of coughing club". Seriously, phlegm has taken over my life. Still, in a seemless link to a health and safety plug, I"ve got to ...

Well, I"ve manfully soldiered on until the end of the week, and am just starting to feel a little bit better. Just glad it"s friday so I can spend the weekend quietly, hopefully finally shaking off this horrible bug. Thankfully, the man flu has only coincided with the work cycle which involv ...

Except it really is awful and I really do feel as rough as a rough thing on a rough night in a rough town having drunk lots of rough whiskey out of a very rough glass.

Well, it was my first D&M Show last weekend, and what a great time I had. It was particularly great to meet so many readers and members of the forum... you all graciously gave me some positive feedback about the mag, and/or great ideas for future developments.

Well, issue 36 has been put to bed today, with its first editorial deadline. As usual, it"s all a little rushed towards the end, but we"ve hit deadline, and that suits me just fine. We have introduced a new Tools On Test section in the magazine, which basically takes our old tests model, and ...
