Could you explain the WI/MN?

You mean my location?  Sure.  I am from southeast WI, go to school in MN, and am currently living in east central WI.  I was living in WI last fall, MN this past spring, WI this summer, and MN this fall.  For simplicity, I opted to just say I live in both states.

I also wanted to make it known that I basically live in both states for meetup purposes or anything of that sort.  Someone in MN might otherwise be hesitant to ask someone from WI to help out with something, but since I have an apartment in MN I could easily and quickly travel there even when I live in WI.

Hope that answers your question.  :)

So...according to your fascination with MN/WI accents, we should be best friends since I live in both.  :P

My question is answered.  Woo, that's a lot of moving.
Wish I had some gif or quote for this space, but I got nothing

Not all these observations are totally dedicated to Keycon, but through the GH community itself:

Ming will now forever be known as "Mingopedia"
CPT Badass is "always wrong"  ;)
TJ's peace "pipe" is pretty cool
Sifo is a real live anime character
The Beast is an expert craftsman and not the ferocious animal I expected :eek:
Binge is a deadringer for Russell Brand
Mr. and Mrs. Melvang have some awesome recipes
Halverson, I appreciate the "no judgement" of my drinking straight from the water carafe
HoffmanMyster, you're a sweet, gentle giant
You all really do have birth names other than your handles
General internet terms defined:  Planking, trolling--thank you   :)
Double shots are not espresso drinks
A Phantom is not a spook
A Cherry is not a tasty fruit
GB= group buy
Twerking is not a talent reserved for Miley Cyrus  :p
Geekhackers are often foodies, anime' enthusiasts and gearheads  :thumb:

Smally Fry has an incredible family (Mamafry, your new avatar rocks!)---although I never had the privilege of meeting Nate, I feel like I got a glimpse of his exuberant nature and loving essence--thank you for keeping his sweet spirit alive in this community through your energetic involvement

Mashby has a wonderful network of fellow Geekhackers who are so witty, kind, creative and all around brilliant!

Thank you all for openly embracing this techie challenged , GH newbie into your great community.  :-*

It's so very awesome that this stuck.

Also, halverson got all his carafe drinking judgement out on me when I drank from one earlier.

You guys don't even know. Sparkle Barbie skilled it when she picked out an amazing place to have brunch...and indulged my obsession with ice cream. I tend to remember people based on food experiences more than keyboard experiences :P. Welcome to GeekHack!
