All good things and people must come to an end... :(
 
Geek Question of the Day: We sadly seem to be losing artists by the dozen this year. With the news of the passing of James Horner, I thought I'd just ask you guys; What music created/performed by James Horner is your favorite and why? It's totally fine if you guys answer similarly. For reference, here is his Wikipedia page: http://bit.ly/1Id2iTI #gqotd

The FBI is becoming a bit of a bad joke if it wasn't already
There's an organization responsible for more terrorism plots in the United States than al-Qaeda, al-Shabaab and ISIS combined: The FBI. How? Why? In an eye-opening talk, investigative journalist Trevor Aaronson reveals a disturbing FBI practice that breeds terrorist plots by exploiting Muslim-Americans with mental health problems.

Going to be sharing Charlie's regular post from now on as they are the nuts
 
Geek Question of the Day: Fiction is full of characters who, for one reason or another, leave the story. Whether they die, run away, are cast out, or just plain disappear, it leads us to tonight's question; What are the most memorable character goodbye's (or losses) and why do they stick with you? Yup all the usual sources apply! #gqotd

Me thinks the Kubuntu feature tour could do with an update? How could I contribute to the Kubuntu site?
