Coffee Time News 04/08/14

Happy Monday everyone, just a quick bit of admin to get out of the way; last month I mentioned that I’ve taken a bit more work at my night job, well this has left me with less time than I would prefer to dedicate to Axby. To that end, for the next 6 weeks or so, our weekly Lazy Sunday Lists will now be up on Wednesdays. I’m hoping that this will allow me to do a bit more behind the scenes to make Axby a better site for you guys.

With that out of the way it’s time for some news!
