Webtacular World Issue # 119, March 13, 2016

Greetings Webtaculators! Hooray! It’s Daylight Saving Time again! We finally get our afternoons back! Given, waking up for work tomorrow will be awful (basically it means I’ll be up at what my body will think is 4:30 AM), but I’ll take a little tiredness for my precious sun time. That is if it ever stops raining. On to the news.
