Hey, another wiki. Great!
Here, you will find things. You may notice that anonymous edits are firmly DISABLED. Yeah, THAT'S RIGHT. I am intentionally destroying the communal benefits that wiki was designed to provide. Why? I friggin hate spam, and my two previous wikis were consumed by friggin spambots. You may also notice that you can't create a user account. COPE! :) If you really want to contribute, please mail me at dreNOSPAMPLSKTHX@mac.com, and I'd be more than happy to let you in.
UPDATE: Even this one got spam-bombed. Note to self: use of 'one-click upgrades' are unlikely to migrate configuration file directives when the syntax changes.
Here is the page of User:Dre, your esteemed information broker.
