Hacks/Hackers

12Jul11

First off, apologies for all those who’ve been missing the DWS molten eloquence. I’ve taken on a new start-up project, so it’s all busy busy busy (mainly working out what I’ll do with my untold riches when my ship comes in – colossal equestrian statues and gold-plated yachts, I imagine).
