TWTWTW: At the current rate of production – I should really rename this feature

Yes, yes. I have been tardy, nay a little slapdash in the updating of this blog of late, and especially of this feature. You don’t want to hear excuses, but as I’m writing this, I’m going to give them to you anyway.

It’s been a hellish busy start to the year. A couple of new projects on the go, Open University has started again and I am trying (though also currently way behind) to complete Codecademy. Ok, it’s not the best excuse you’ll ever read but at least it’s true. I never said it was interesting or amusing…
