Editors note FlameS

Welcome to issue #6 of the Bootleggers Buzz

This week, yours truly has been away on holiday and following my late night return last night I have woken to publish this issue with no idea on the weeks proceedings. This has actually given me quite a lot of joy, I have read through all of the articles before publishing as always, however today has been the first time that I didn't know what I would be reading, and it was fabulous. I really do take my hat off to the current team who give up their spare time to bring you the news each week. Through the eyes of someone out of the loop this week, the stories available really do let me feel like I am part of the action.

The big news stories this week include the changing of colours for several players, 4 new HDOs and one new Moderator (Developer). Joke covers the former and Illinois covers the latter. Joke also brings us the story of Plax's death (sorry for the delay). Afty writes another wonderful column in his FAQ series and Constans serves up two articles; one news based and a column regarding psychology, both well worth a read. And finally; Joke finishes off his hatrick by writing an article about our illustrious leader BSF2000

I do hope you enjoy this weeks issue, and please as always leave as much feedback as possible.

And lastly, we are currently looking at recruiting one new member to the Buzz team, if you are interested please contact one of the team.

Happy Bootlegging.
