And I’m back! If you were wondering what was happening and why no new post appeared on the website, it’s only because i just moved to a new flat. With all the planning required and some problems with the internet provider, i was not able to write new content while dealing with everything. Thankfully, things are clearing out before the end of the year and I hope to be back to a regular schedule. If not, don’t hesitate to tweet me @delaydistort.
