+Chris Wilson I've had this problem all day for some reason (asked several people) but finally just got one to go through. Not sure what's going on there, but thank you! Loving it so far.

OK, I've just been setting up a couple of laptops with Lubuntu, and realised that regardless of the distro and what use the machine will be put to, I always install the following first, and in this order:

Tmux, Vim, Lynx and Google Chrome (if I'm running a desktop and it's not pre-installed)

This got me wondering what are the first things you grab when you start working with a vanilla install?

Chrome, synaptic, adobe reader (for school), Gimp, and Drives (I just did a fresh load of Xubuntu 14.04 on my laptop).

I got me a #raspberrypi!

Had it since the weekend, but tomorrow night I'll finally have time to get it all set up and start playing. A think a minimal Linux distro booting up to a nice MAME GUI will be my first project.

Nice. Was pointed in this direction by Jon Gomm.

If you like this, then it's very likely you'd also enjoy Jon's work.

Loving the #whitespace stuff that's flooding in at the moment. Much of it very clever, or at least funny.

Tried and then turned off GExtend as it requires too much horizontal eye movement to read posts. Think I'd rather just have the ability to pin the Trending, You May Know and You Might Like stuff rather than having it scroll off the top of the screen. Presumably that (and plenty of other options) will land before long.

OK everyone, I've been a bit slack with this due to other things I've been up to lately, but if you'd like to sponsor me for the 6 mile Sport Relief run in a fortnight or so, then that would be wonderful.

The giving link is here: http://my.sportrelief.com/sponsor/ciw1973

If I get £100 or more in sponsorship, then I'll be running this dressed as one of the Gumbies from Monty Python. Michael Palin to be precise.
