I ought to say something about "the best laid plans" and all that, but I'll save the cliché. Obviously, we haven't finished moving to our new blog website even after 2 weeks. This is all the more embarrassing considering this is what I do, but when I get paid by other people for other work, that has to take priority, and that I've had a lot of work the last couple of weeks is my real (and best) excuse.

These are, however, hints of what we've been up to since our last blog hit the world wide web a week ago.
