Editor's note
This week we lead off with the most popular item from the past week, "The languages of Debian Wheezy", which reported on the analysis of Perth-based programmer James Bromberger. Make sure to take a look at today's Around the Grounds post, there's plenty of news in there about the R18+ game rating and new locations added to the 2012 NBN roll-out in Victoria and Tasmania. Hope you have a good seven days and we'll see you next week. -- Chris
