Don't forget the BI-Gen Twitter feed - remember that stuff gets mentioned here that often doesn't make it onto the blog (and you don't have to formally join Twitter to read my feed).

Oh, and I've a little announcement to make tomorrow (Saturday), so do call in to see what it's all about.

Must try to trim down my staff...
