Mind that vacuum cleaner, it's Tuesday housekeeping here at Tech Digest


Just a spot of housekeeping here on Tech Digest today, with a few new changes to our staff roll-call.

The hugely-knowledgeable Dave Walker is still contributing to the site, in fact, as our new Contributing Editor. You can reach him here if you fancy swinging some compliments his way.
