Buddy and Hopkins, Change of Email, Wrecked on Homepage, Mr.NWB Goes Freelance!, NWB Wedding!

Howdy People

A mix bag of news.. Firstly

Buddy and Hopkins - Jason Nocera has ended his run of B&H comic strips, so that means no more new strips for the site. On the plus side we now have enough strips from the archives to rotate them every few days. Theres a hoarde of strips that most people wont have seen, of have forgotten.

Jason is concentrating on developing bespoke comic strips for clients. I've been in talking to Jason, and hopefully we'll be able to reveal some exciting news shortly

Change of Email - I get numerous requests from people on how to change their registered NWB email address. You can now change your email through your admin panel - http://www.northwestbands.co.uk/Myprofile/ChangeEmail.aspx

Wrecked on Homepage - I have taken The Fix off the homepage,and replaced them with a classic photo of Wrecked.

Mr.NWB gone 100% freelance - Yep, I've gone freelance, which is good news for NWB as I should now have even more time to get the extra features developed for NWB 2.0. This is also a very scary time, as I wont have a regular income coming in, but the freedom is going to be awesome! - (shameless plug) - If anyone wants a website developing, or knows of someone who does, please pass on my details - www.suedeapple.co.uk

Wedding - Me and Mrs NWB will be officially tieing the knot on Saturday 1st of May. The big question is... who have we got as our wedding band?? :-)

Thats all for now folks

Buddy & Hopkins? What happens next at that acoustic place where drummer walks in???????
Wedding band? Its not us is it? No, I'd say The Fix as a one off.

A mix bag of comments.. Firstly

Congrats on your forthcoming wedding. Just make sure Mrs NWB can say the vows in English and doesn't lapse into her native Spanish,......

Going it alone is a real scary moment, but if you have everything in place and more so the belief that you can do it, it will probably turn out to be the best move ever, (after marrying Mrs NWB that it is).

As one who wanted to change e-mail, ta very muchly for the development tweak.

Congratulations, I'm sure things will work out fine.
