>> OPENING WORDS FROM THE EDITORBy Colin Vassallo, [Editor@...]
Hey boys and girls. For the 'new' subscribers, thanks for all the
comments you've been sending. E-mails with suggestions, comments and
complaints are always welcomed. Hopefully tomorrow I will get the
replies out. It's a pretty hectic week at W-O, we're changing the ads on
our websites since we sent our 30 day notice to our former ad agency and
it takes quite a few to update all HTML. Hopefully everything will be
running smoothly by the beginning of next week.
Also I would like to announce a new sponsor for our PPVs.
AttitudeTees.com will be replacing WWFTees.com in providing some of the
t-shirts for our competitions.
That's all for today, back tomorrow.
