    It's used in Missouri too, although its generally reserved for familiar speech. I wouldn't use it when talking to a customer or an enginer at another company. I use it when typing, again in familiar contexts, because it is easier than typing probably, which requires much more finger movement.
    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.

    I spell "probably" as "prolly" sometimes, but i never use it as a spoken word. I also write "tho" instead of "though" and "cos" instead of "because". Reason being: laziness.
