Issues and Problems  - 
 
Update problem.  My trusty is located under folder:

/media/removable/chroots/main/trusty but when I run:

sudo sh ~/Downloads/crouton -p /media/removable/chroots/main -u -n trusty

It munges the path, saying:

/media/removable/chroots/main/chroots not found.
/media/removable/chroots/main/chroots/trusty does not exist; cannot update.

Why does it force 'chroots' as the immediate parent?

I don't think crouton likes subfolders in the chroots directory so you may have to eliminate 'main' and put your chroot(s) right under /media/removable/chroots

Wasn't too concerned about the Crouton backup skipping the Dropbox sockets (causing Dropbox to reinitialize when restoring a backup), but now I see I've got keyring stuff being skipped?  Wondering if that is going to screw up Ubuntu in some way when I next restore a backup.

chronos@localhost/media/removable/ntfs/CroutonBackups $ sudo edit-chroot -b -c /media/removable/chroots/main trusty

I found out today, Google Image Search pitches way better movie ideas than me.

Hello, G+!  Screenwriters, are you a hoarder?  Can't resist a guilty extra spoonful that turns bliss to binge?  Then I am not your friend today.  Here's enough screenwriting news to keep you busy not writing.  Fun for the family!  Give your agent a heart attack from your missed deadlines: http://10ptt.com/go/swn #screenwriting

"This movie gets worse every screening." -- alleged screening notes by Jerry Perenchio and Bud Yorkin, lamenting over the state of BLADE RUNNER.  "Were they all on drugs when they did this?"

+François Beaufort  François, I've had a chromebox for a week and was lamenting the soft/light fonts and lack of control over text gamma, subpixel rendering etc.  I googled and learned fonts could be improved/darkened by overriding default styles -- very disappointing that the custom user styles feature was ripped out of chrome after 32!  But thankfully the Stylish extension permits adding this overriding style that allows beautiful dark fonts in chrome:

html, body {
-webkit-font-smoothing: subpixel-antialiased !important;
text-shadow: 0px 0px 0px !important;
-webkit-text-stroke-width: 0.05px !important;
}

Adjusting the stroke width value between 0.01 and 0.1 gives great results.  Chrome really needs this level of control built in.

Otherwise, I'm having a blast with my chromebox and crouton!  Incredible stuff.  Thanks for making it possible.

Screenwriters, some ten-page torture tests where I go all Rain Man on words and sentences, yeah, 21 syllables so far.  Definitely N-O-T wearing underwear, yeah.

Apogee Software/3D Realms—the studio that spent more than a decade working on Duke Nukem Forever—is suing Gearbox Software, the company that bought that game’s rights and released the long-brewing sequel in 2011. Apogee/3D Realms alleges that Gearbox has refused to pay more than $2 million owed to 3D Realms from royalties and advances Gearbox received from publishers for Duke Nukem Forever.
