News for Sunday August 19th 2012

News

It’s Sunday and for some reason I was up and wide awake at 7:30 am, I could have slept in. My kids stayed at their grandmas so I really had no reason to get up but I did. I figured I’d get some work done as I’ve been busy with other projects lately, my host upgraded one of my other sites without telling me and crashed my site so I had to spend hours and hours fixing that. After spending time doing that and fighting with support I really didn’t feel like doing anything, but it’s back to work now. So how about some news, and there’s a lot about the recent Nvidia launch of course. So read the news and check back later for a review..
