Tighten up the tinfoil hats, folks; this is going to be that kind of day. I know my readership extends to Europe and beyond, and I’m going to try to bear that potentially international audience in mind as I write this.

While hanging out in some of the regular channels for SmartOS help, I’ve noticed that some people may still be having a hard time finding where the community congregates.
