Our continuing weekly series where I ramble on about whatever topics happen to catch my fancy for a particular week. This week, we take a quick look at 0.8.0.2, make some recommendations on how people can provide useful feedback to the global community teams, discuss the recent Q&A with Sir_Nelson, briefly touch on the new radar and flooding changes, and take an in-depth look at USS Wichita.
