Update On Fresh Ubuntu

Update On Fresh Ubuntu So now that the summer is winding down I just want to ready everyone for the continuation of what I believe will be a year to remember. Also, the site got “Stumbled” and sent a lot of traffic my way, so I want to thank the “stumblers” who stopped by and […]
