News for February 24th 2012

News

So here’s me up at 5:30 am and I don’t know why, yep I’m wide awake. I was up at 3am, but I got back to sleep thankfully! I figured why not get some news posted as it’s been a while, longer than I’d like actually. So there’s a lot of it for you in here, sit back, relax and read some news and reviews from our friends around the world…
