Just discovered that my favorite handwritten note-taking software on Linux, Xournal, is also available on Windows. :)

Grive2: Grive Fork With Google Drive REST API And Partial Sync Support [PPA]: http://www.webupd8.org/2015/05/grive2-grive-fork-with-google-drive.html

Grive was an unofficial, open source command line Linux client for Google Drive. I say "was" because the tool no longer works due to Google changing it's API recently and Grive not being maintained any more (there are no commits on its GitHub page since May, 2013).

To get Grive up and running again, Vitaliy Filippov forked it and named his fork "Grive2". The fork supports the new Google Drive REST API and it also includes a new feature: partial (directory) sync, along with bug fixes.

Nothing quite like having the morning sun shine through your open window as you first work on your computer, with a sleeping, well-fed kitty curled up on your bed nearby and a freshly-brewed mug of green tea at the ready.

How to Make a Squircle in SVG
It seems squircles are pretty popular nowadays. Both iOS and Ubuntu make use of this shape, which also appeared in some other places. If you don't feel like following my Wikipedia link, a squircle is defined geometrically by the equation x 4 +y 4 =r 4 . And...

So, it looks like our new AT&T U-verse gateway is dropping at least 10% of packets on average when trying to go online through it over WiFi. This probably explains why web pages occasionally take longer to load, if at all, and our game systems are having trouble connecting to online services. Download speed and latency still look good, however.

Only my parents' computer doesn't have any problems accessing the Internet, but of course it is connected to the gateway via Ethernet.

You should have mentioned something about being reminded of the 1930s stock market crash and that the word crash now triggers a PTSD reaction just for giggles XD

The idea that Apple hardware is “better for creative uses” is 100% BS.

If you use Apple hardware, stop using that reason. There are plenty of non-Apple computers out there with the same or better internals, the same or better displays, and the same or better size/weight.

Instead, be honest about your preferences: you appreciate well-designed hardware, and you consistently get that with Apple laptops. And/or you prefer to use OS X over Windows. And/or you care about appearances and Apple hardware is a status symbol to you.

Those are all completely valid reasons.

But stop with the “it’s better for creative work” because it’s really not.

The trouble adding a single submit <button> to a broken #HTML  form can cause.

Story
Tagline
Ubuntu user with many side projects.
Introduction
I have been a user of Ubuntu since 9.04, and am usually running whatever the latest development release is on my laptop. I am using Ubuntu GNOME on my desktop. Although I'm not currently using it, I'm also an elementary OS fan. I am currently an undergraduate in computer science at Lawrence Technological University in Southfield, MI.

I typically am kept quite busy with school and work, but I also have a few side hobbies, which include hanging out with friends online, coding, bike riding, and teaching myself Esperanto.
Bragging rights
Fixed a few Ubuntu bugs; constructed my own personal website from scratch; maintainer of the Chocolatey package for EASy68K

The store layout is confusing, and my #3 Totally Tuna came without the bean sprouts. Service was just okay; not good, but not bad either. There's a Jimmy John's in Sterling Heights that I like better.

I got the ribs and was quite disappointed. They came out tough, dry and chewy, with a hard shell. They weren't very tasty, either. For $11 for a 1/3 slab, they were quite the letdown.
