I must have walked into a tear on my nightly walk;
Homosexual marriage is now legal;
Bernie Sanders is being taken seriously;
Donald Trump is running for president;
Bridgeport Lake is full;
Valve (via Steam OS) is challenging the way we look at PC gaming;
A portable gaming system running Steam OS is in the works;
AND the CRAZIEST ANNOUNCEMENT Microsoft is releasing a desktop Linux distribution called Miux (pronounced "Mix") before Windows 10 and for half the cost. And it is supposed to be fully compatible with windows mobile apps.
I'm not even adding the personal stuff that has changed lately. Wow! Just wow.

So Vague Entertainment is working on starting a independent broadcasting "channel". And I'm are looking for talented individuals that aren't afraid of either getting in front of a camera or having their voices broadcast out to the interwebs.
Only one show has been set in stone and I'm looking for pitches for a whole host of shows.
If you're interested, comment here, or if you have my number send me a text, and we will do the talking.

I'm trying to use the conditional layouts, but I seem to be missing something. How do I get the actual width and height of the window when it is sent to the phone?

Okay I'm a goof ball. Its was as simple as placing the layouts into the right area.  As usual I was over thinking things

So I found the first real problem with the Ubuntu phone philosophy. I dropped my N4 and got a minor break in the glass. Because this crack is on then bottom half of the screen I'm unable to use any vertical gestures.

As you can imagine I'm bummed out.

Boycott SourceForge! They give Open Source a bad name by adding adware and malware to the downloads making windows computers run slower and who knows what else.

Here is a dev update for CafeSync by Vague Entertainment , I've been hard at work on the server backend so I haven't had much time to work on the interface. This is the tentative layout for the tablet and desktop versions.

For youtube and other services that make RSS feeds for their users I will be replacing the webView with a custom QML item.

 I also may look into making a scope to update the server on the users current locations to get around the current limitations on background services.

I've decided to release a working, but far from complete version of CafeSync for the phones. Location services will be turned off so everyone that downloads it and sets up an account will be able to see everyones cards. This isn't the intent of the program but I thought if I had users to test it I would have more drive to complete it.  It will also give me a chance to get feed back on where it needs to go.

In one of the new convergence videos they show Netflix working using the web-container (the video said so) anyone have a clue how they did this? I get the stop page when I try.

+Benjamin Flanagin You need to install Xmir (see acelan's notes but it's not really ready for public use yet), then install Chrome.  Create a bash script to:  1) Start Xmir, 2) Start Chrome (with DISPLAY set to that Xmir) with the option --kiosk and the url of Netflix.  We're doing a proper write up of everything soon which might help more.
