vNews – 25th May, 2010

Date: May 25, 2010

Welcome to this months vNews, and what with me being on holiday during this time – there is lots to report. Did the vendors know I was on my holidays – and release stuff just as I board the plane? Anyway, I’m back from Crete where I took my break – whilst I was there I took out the time to walk/hike the Somaria Gorge, which is allegedly the longest gorge in Europe. Somewhere between 16-18km in length – you drop a couple of 1,000m within the first couple of kilometers. So it was down hill all the way you say – easy-peasy. Not so my friend. I almost lost both toenails from each of my feet! So this vNews is well earned chance to rest my butt and those toes nails – and work my way through all the blog posts and announcements. I had nearly 300 unread posts in my feed-burner – so it took some whittling away to get to this content. Enjoy!
