Editors note Mikamon

Welcome to issue 109 of the Bootleggers Buzz!

We apologize for small issue we've published this week. Due to our writers being struck down by flu, they were stuck in bed to recover and couldn't get to their articles. Apart from the sickness of our writers, this week was a pretty quiet one. Maybe we got spoiled a bit too much these past weeks, as there were no action packed sprees or large updates for us to cover this time.

However, despite the lack of such action, we did manage to cover almost everything that happened this week. We have information on the lag and downtime of Bootleggers and the newly added option to buy points by using PayPal. Additionally, we also have our weekly articles for you. 'Behind the Name', 'A Year Back' and a new weekly article, 'The Weekly Flash' are there for you again.

It was already mentioned earlier, this week's issue also has a new article which will hopefully turn into a weekly one. 'The Weekly Flash' covers everything that happened this week and got the Buzz's attention. It is not limited to the information that can be found in the articles but it also gives a little more information on the events that did not get covered because they were too small or which we were unable to cover for whatever reason. Please let us know what you think of this new article. You can either do this by posting in the article's comment box. All opinions and criticism are most welcome.

Sadly, this week did not have any Freelance articles. As said, it has been a rather quiet week which probably explains the lack of Freelance articles. A freelance article can be about any subject, as long as it is related to Bootleggers. It's a very good way to voice your opinion into the Bootleggers world, and the subjects for them are pretty endless, even in a quiet week like this one.

As always, the Buzz is looking for writers. If you are interested in becoming a writer then read the re-printed version of "So You Think You Can Write?" in issue 97. Please submit a sample article of a recent Bootleggers event via selecting Application in the "Send a" located on the bottom of each Buzz. Remember to mind your grammar, punctuation and spelling. If you are dead before we've contacted you, please submit the same article all over again. Your articles will be reviewed as quickly as possible but please have patience, we won't forget about you.

Enjoy this week's read, and stay safe so we can catch you again next week!
