August 2016 Update

Blogging just seems to be one of those things that has got away from me this year.  Whilst I’ve sometimes taken the lazy man’s option of posting an image to Instagram, I’ve not been as good as I was last year with monthly updates.  Ironically, it’s because I’ve been so busy that I’ve not been [...]

My first MMO was Star Wars Galaxies and we had a great guild with our own city until the NGE came along and just wrecked everything we loved [...]
