The mittens are off again! - Gazette Issue 4 - 1424 S.R.

As you can see, the Gazette has put away it's winter livery again and I thought that would be enough cause to follow up on the three most wanted persons I mentioned last month.

First, there was our graphics editor, who we need to change liveries just before Yule and after Spring sets in: Master Speckles did a great job designing those and quietly changed them again just in time *cheers*

Secondly, every musician was on the lookout for Master Digero who laid the foundation of their widely used tool called "Maestro". Unfortunately Master Digero himself could not find opportunity to adapt Maestro to the use of the new fiddles, but a team of dedicated users decided to help out. They are (in no particular order) Bruzo, Adarbyem and Aifel *cheers* Well done! The fruit of their labour can be found here and is regularly updated.

The third person on the list is Bramblebury's present Deputy Mayor (by election in 2010), Master Byronbrand Stepwise. This is what editor Yola Plumblossom found during her search for him...
