G2E - Same procedure as every year
They'll be no updates to whilst I'm in the U.S. for G2E. However I will be posting via the Forum and a selection of images on GF's Flickr account. It's quite possible there'll also be the odd Tweet but as I ain't a Celeb it's unlikely that anyone will notice them :).

Apologies for the break in service and I hope to see some of you there.  Ian
