Greetings Webtaculators! Welcome to the very first hundredth issue! We here at Webtacular World have done very few things 100 times, so this is a pretty awesome milestone. We would give you some stats, but our relative laziness prevented us from tracking anything important. Thanks for being part of this crazy experiment.
Also, daylight saving time is over, so remember to roll back your clocks, and enjoy coming home in the dark. Onto the news.
