Unfortunately, Neil made an abomination of the video and it’s too awful to publish - he’s sitting in the naughty corner awaiting the finest coal that Santa has to offer later this month. Huge apologies for that!

As some of you may have heard, One of our fellow London Apple Admin herders was diagnosed with testicular cancer in January last year.

In November, Graham Gilbert’s trademark beard will be going away, to be replaced by a glorious ‘tache for Movember. He has setup a FaceBook fundraiser page and asks that instead of buying him a beer, please consider a donating.

If this matters to you, click here and please donate any amount you can spare.

If you use any of his software, or like his website or any of his talks, you owe him ;)
