Devnet, you should have seen it before I edited it. The guy was sniffing something.

I prefer to think of myself as an Ubunterini. Well, now I guess I'll see if I can get twenty Dallasites to request a visit. I am running a test machine with Breezy and it seems pretty good. I don't notice anything spectacular as compared to Hoary, but several slightly newer versions of software. I wonder if it would be worth trying on a ThinkPad 570.

When I was in undergraduate school at Michigan State, I became aware that locals were split on what to call themselves. The higher wattage, brighter, wittier, more inventive, more distinctive souls liked Michigander.

The strive-to-be-tapioca crowd preferred Michiganian.

Some years later, I understand that the state legislature made Michiganian official.

Why am I not surprised?

What's sauce for the Michigoose is sauce for the Michigander.

And no goose worth her dander would prefer a ganian to a gander.

I didn't mind the tag for Ubuntu users. The original heading was:

Badger Badger Badger Tour and Special USA Tour

then I really liked this:

Expect badgers, mushrooms, schnaaaaaakes, an awful lot of Ubuntu CDs, and a healthy dose of madcap hijinks! If you would like to catch up with me during my journey, add your details to the wiki page, or reply to this email.

The" schnaaaaaakes" sort of added to the exuberance of the annoucement.

Oh well.
