In case anyone here is having trouble getting the 14.04 updates to show up, here's what I found to get it working:

The 14.04 upgrade won't be coming until 14.04.1 if you're on the previous lts release.  Running "sudo update-manager -d" will force it now, but for me that still didn't do it.  In /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades Propmt was set to never.  Changing that to lts and then running sudo update-manager -d did the trick though.

Hope this helps others trying to do the same thing.

Upon completing the upgrade 2-finger scrolling stopped working.  This fixed that:

echo "blacklist i2c_hid" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

My newly created Android app is now up in the Play Store.  

It's a flash card app that functions as you might expect, except that it creates a spreadsheet in your Google Drive for you to enter your flash cards so you can use a real keyboard to type them in.  Tabs/sheets in the spreadsheet turn into card sets and rows in the sheets turn into cards.

I made this because I wanted a flash card app but find it frustrating to type on a touch screen.  I considered allowing users to upload a file and have the app download it or copy data via USB, but that seems annoying to do.  The obvious option would be to have a server running a simple card editor webapp, but that means users creating/managing accounts and having to store all that data.  It turns out Google Drive Spreadsheets already does all that though and makes for a perfect personal database.  So, I made Cartes use Google's handy flash card editor storage system and now users get a nice interface that they're already used to and free storage for the data.

So far my new Sputnik is great.  My only minor complaint is the Intel sticker spoiling the nice design a bit.  Has anyone removed that sticker without leaving a scratched-up sticky mess?

Been working on this with +Tony Chuinard. Think of it like fantasy sports picks bit where you get paid if someone buys your pick.

Been an interesting project with AngularJS and Google App Engine.

I made an Android app to help me keep track of how I'm doing for my health in the simplest way.  With this thing I just click the good or bad button and I can see a chart later if I am doing ok.

Knowing I'm going to make myself click the bad button tends to be enough to help me avoid eating a donut or something.

The same thing could be accomplished with an existing calorie counter app or something like that, but I found that I never took the time to enter in all that data.  I made this because it requires the absolute minimum amount of effort to keep track of my progress.  In the end, I don't care how many calories I ate; I know the m&m's are bad for me, I just need to make sure I don't end up eating 8 hand-fulls of them over the course of the day (that would be 8 bad clicks now).

I made if for myself, but it's up in the Google Play store for $1, so maybe I'll make a few dollars too, which I'll try my best not to spend on chocolate. :)

This week I'm at 2/3 good.  Last week I ended with 50/50.  I'm trying to do better this time around. :)

Terrible. Incorrect mail delivery, lost packages, items that show as delivered online, but never actually got delivered. We know this are being sent to us and know there is a decent chance we'll never receive them.

Went in to get a SIM card swapped from an old phone to a new one. Rather than try to sell me a new SIM (as another T-Mobile store did) the guy that helped me cut my old one and got me in and out the door in under 5 minutes without trying to sell me anything.
