Yes lack of posts here, I need to post more but my hands are getting worse, they just seem to want to work most days…or at least they don’t seem to do what I want them to do so it makes typing hard. I have good days and bad days though, some are better than others and on the good days I try to get a lot done… Anyway here’s the latest tech news…
