Server Update & Comments

I was fiddling about with the Snowulf Wiki earlier today, updating a few pages. I remember that originally, rather than download the latest release, I checked the wiki code out of SVN – so it was about time for an update.

Bugatti Veyron I stopped by the Danville d’Elegance car show this last weekend. For those that don’t know what the show is, it is a high end show that takes place on the main street in Danville, CA. By “high end” I mean that there were 100+ vehicles there, worth (easily) 15-20 million dollars, in my estimate. They had some old cars that have really been shinned up nicely, but...
