Ok, so I’m back. Niel that is. I was on vacation/studying in Beijing. It was great! For now, I’m going to pick up Twindie.net again. I was hoping my bro would do some posts, but at least he was almost there, with a draft of one post! Give him some applause!

Also Twindie.net has some great things in store in the coming few weeks. So stay tuned!
