A Christmas Catastrophe

A calamitous collision of kitty cat, (very full) coffee cup and computer keyboard has clobbered my PC. 
While I await official permission from the missus to replace my fallen laptop the SWO empire will feature fewer blog posts and more tweets. Hopefully things will be back to normal in a few days. 

Cheers and thanks for visiting!
