Hello, Wisconsin.

anything rolling somewhere in the state.

***Happenings (here, let me play 20 questions):
What kinds of things are people doing? Is anyone testing Natty?
Desktop, Netbook, Unity? Thoughts? Report or fix any bugs? Still
rocking the long-term release? Anyone using server?
Okay, so that was only 7 questions.
