  10. Hey Guys!  I've done a bit of work on the server this afternoon.  Maybe the forums are a bit quicker?

    Hi Folks, It's been a while since I've had the time to dedicate any attention to the forum. Many thanks to rising star, Eigen and fuzzy_logician for keeping the show on the road. Anyway - In past years we've opened up blogging to folks who were interested in sharing their admissions journey with a wider audience. If anyone is interested in doing that for this season, please reply to this thread! Cheers -bgk
