"Where y'at" is a New Orleans dialect. When I was at Tulane, we derisively
referred to the locals as "yats" as a result.
As far as the "pre-" prefix, in many instances (pre-installed, pre-loaded)
it seems almost to be a shorthand for 'previously' and could be changed to
that quite easily and omit some extra words.
I'd normally be more loquacious, but just got back from the dentist where I
was pre- and post drilled (got a crown ...)
