"The evolt.org community is happy to announce what will become a regular news feature on the evolt.org site, for all members." ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ not looking for flamefests or accusations or anything, just some thoughts from a person who was hoping to write a 'recap', but thought there should be something to 'recap' first... .djc.
