Go: Going, Going...Gone...to the Machine

And boom, like that, another previously human domain passes to machines. Deep Learning algorithms from the DeepMind team at Google can now beat professional Go players.

Just ran into this nasty bug, and worked around it by manually installing Arduino IDE 1.6.7 from the website as suggested. Any chance a newer package will be uploaded to 15.10/16.04 LTS to fix this nasty issue?

Well, the arduino package in +Ubuntu​ is far outdated! 😮 https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/arduino . Coz, the one in Debian sid is too: https://packages.debian.org/sid/arduino . It seems upstream +Arduino​ haven't been very active in maintaining the Debian package. 😞

Fortunately, we +Ubuntu​ users got Ubuntu Make, which's the new recommended method of installing any developer tool. Just use this simple command and you'll get Arduino SDK installed:

umake ide arduino

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-make for more info! 😊

Finally getting back into programming with C# (actually, for the moment, Mono in MonoDevelop) a few years after my last (actually, only) project with it. I'm very used to working with Visual Basic .NET now at work, and I keep tripping up over all of the syntax differences and the surprisingly many things you can't do in C#. :P

I could really use some help here. If I can't get this library set up on my System76 laptop for my robotics programming class, then I'll be forced to use Windows 8 instead. :P

+Christopher Horton you can install any recent Linux distro on a System76 machine. It shouldn't be a problem to install 16.04, or Fedora (which is what I'm using). Also, can't you use virtualbox or KVM to use a virtual Windows install? Or use it to run a virtual install of 16.04

But what I don't understand is many people still prefer the age old analogue dial like look for their smartwatches. 😮 This is the 21st century, analogue watches are supposed to be superseded by digital ones. But for some reason they're still everywhere, strange! 😲

...and now our hot water heater finally decided to fail entirely. As +Jonathan Horton said, it seems like everything around here is breaking at the same time again.

Why do you guys have a hot water heater? If the water is already hot, there's no need to heat it. A cold water heater is more like it!

Day 2 of Dad's DIY hot water heater replacement process. After spending an evening and night with no running water at all, we now have ice-cold water again, but still no hot because he misplaced a crucial part. Now the bathtub faucet and toilet are leaking water like crazy, with no way to stop it except by shutting the water off again (but both needed repairs for a while now, despite Dad's perpetual denial).

I seriously wish he would just pay for a professional plumber to come in and clean up his mess already, rather than trying to save a buck doing everything himself when he has no idea what he's doing.

That awkward moment when everything works just fine after all is said and done (except for the bathtub faucet, but there's nothing new with that acting funny).

Just published my first #Pebble #watchface ! This one attempts to emulate the look of the GNOME 3 lockscreen. I'll upload fancier watchfaces later on as my skills improve.

(Note: This watchface will only work on the Pebble Time and Pebble Time Steel.)

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 packages for EASy68K and gdipp

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.

My favorite place for BBQ. Their sauce is good, and I really like their fried okra!

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.
