Only one more week of Summer. It is time for all of us to kick back into overdrive and bring Burst to the masses. If you are unsure of how to help, dont hesitate to ask. Burst is a community owned project and has to be supported from all sides. As the reports are showing, work is picking up at a very encouraging pace. I look forward to seeing what the last quarter of the year has in store for us.

A big thank you to Tom for the honor of filling in while he is away, he will be returning next week. I hope I have done the weekly report justice, and kept the readers happy. So long!
