Beware! I apt-get dist-upgraded my system to the latest fedora development rpms, and part of that upgraded dev to udev. All very nice. Except I couldn't open a terminal. So I rebooted.

In Windows, we need to manually edit the registry as Zulu and Sipedi / Northern Sotho aren't listed languages...

a while ago - why not use lamp posts to hold WiFi HotSpots
