It has been a long time coming, but finally we have blog.

This will be the place were you get to hear about a whole bunch of stuff. Not only will there be special cases and quizes but also posts about any new features we are working on, and some tips about how to use existing features. Best of all, because (like any other blog) you have the ability to comment, we hope you will join in the discussion and help us make the site even better. 

I look forward to sharing thoughts and content in the near future.
