Here are some of my top tips for additional OS X functions, most have come from my experience at home and work.

For anyone who went to Majorca and wants there pictures on ImAFish send them to [email protected] and I will stick them online for you. I hope to get hold of Pete Clayton's funny PowerPoint presentation at some point and put that online.
Thanks to the people who wrote articles while I was away, I should get back to adding more content to the site soon. The site has just made 100 articles, so well done everyone who has submitted content over the past 6 months. We should be seeing some changes to the site over the next 2 months, Shenton hopes to have some free time from his hectic schedule to write the comedy section and there are ideas for a music section that I can see taking up a lot of my coding time!!! I also have a new web mail section for the site at some point that I hope to have working very soon.
More soon I hope when I'm less tired - maybe a picture.
