Whilst I’ve been very quite on my own blog of late, I have been quite busy working on my Company Website: BitSolver Limited.  I have made a big improvement to the overall look and feel of the Website, making it easier to navigate and understand.  I’ve added more images to break up the text and clarify points being raised.

Over the next few month I will be adding more content to BitSolver Limited.
