He was interviewed on a french tv show specialized on japanese culture a year ago and showed other instruments on various vegetables. Happy to show this to you at next sprint (there is an account required to access to the replay of that tv channel)

I connected a mouse to my Ubuntu phone.... this happened! The large icons and fonts will be because it knows the screen is only 4 inches.. Not a bad effort considering its far from ready, or even publicized that this feature even exists, let alone that it is so far along.

The original series of House of Cards is worth a watch too.

Upgraded my home server from Linux 3.16 to 4.1.3 which has fixed (for me) terrible btrfs performance issues (for now).

For some reason under 3.16 it took an age (days) to delete a few GB of data across 6 directories. Upgraded, rebooted and now it takes minutes. Well happy. The chaps in #btrfs on freenode are very helpful.

We had one of these but it wasn't long before we got a midi interface that worked with a Casio keyboard and it was never used again.

I wrote up some notes on how easy I found it to port HTML5 games to #ubuntu phone. Hope it's useful.

+Diego Fernando Leal yes, it allows people to play the game offline (if the game supports that).

It's no wonder developers hardly bother with meaningful change logs in the play store when Google themselves don't.

Help us make clear skies for everyone by beta testing the new Weather app and/or by helping us write tests!
The default Weather app for the Ubuntu phone has gone through a major redesign over the last few months! The design has improved to make the gestures that are used more usable. The overall design has been cleaned up. And last, but not least, the app now can give you forecasts for your current ...

Ah nice I find WU to generally have better forecast in advance but weather channel is usually pretty up to date in the moment. Not sure how WU performs overseas though.

Went to the Kingfisher last night (Tuesday) for the first time since the refit. First waiter we had didn't know what some things on the menu were, offloaded us to another waitress. Starters arrived with no cutlery. My starter (squid) was on the 'special' list but was far from special. Overcooked to the point of being burned in places, hard, dry and not like any other squid I've ever had. I complained and it was taken away and struck off the bill. Main course some time later. Waitress ignored us for ages when we were trying to order a bottle of wine. Eventually took the order and then took ages to bring it. We were half way through our meals before the wine arrived. This is yet another crappy meal I've had in that place, each under successive new management. Worst wedding anniversary ever. Not going again.
