Here's the news for June 2008 - things are still pretty hectic for me as I continue to learn my new day-job, so haven't been able to keep on top of the news as much as I'd like, and I've got a sinking feeling I'm missing some important stuff in the list below.

If you really want to help out, and would like to become a guest-editor for July's news, drop me an email and I'll send on the scripts I use when compiling the list - it'll still be a pretty time consuming task though (2 or 3 hours, typically), but it's for a good cause!
