As teased earlier, the first release candidate for WordPress 3.9 is now available for testing!  http://wordpress.org/news/2014/04/wordpress-3-9-release-candidate/ for details.  I tried something new to me, used the WordPress Beta Tester plugin with "Bleeding Edge Nightlies" selected to upgrade from 3.8.2 to WordPress 3.9-RC1  all seems to be fine at first looks.
As teased earlier, the first release candidate for WordPress 3.9 is now available for testing! We hope to ship WordPress 3.9 next week, but we need your help to get there. If you haven’t tested 3.9 yet, there’s no time like the present. (Please, not on a production site, unless you’re adventurous.) To test WordPress 3.9 RC1, try the WordPress Beta Tester plugin (you’ll want “bleeding edge nightlies”). Or you can download the release candidate her...

Nothing bad to say really, everything on the blog seems to work so I'm impressed with RC1 being that far along.  I really haven't tried to break it.

@George, maybe it's from cache?  That indeed is odd, unless they're just over-writing the repos with the same file name, that doesn't make sense.

http://shutter-project.org/  for the Linux users.

Shutter is a feature-rich screenshot program for Linux based operating systems such as Ubuntu. You can take a screenshot of a specific area, window, your whole screen, or even of a website – apply different effects to it, draw on it to highlight points, and then upload to an image hosting site, all within one window. Shutter is free, open-source, and licensed under GPL v3.

Summary: Yes, many of your Windows programs aren't available on Linux, but some of them are and there are Linux programs that can do just as well as your old XP software.

Story
Tagline
If it isn't tested, it doesn't work.
Introduction

The first question: What do I do first? (in setting up their new website) The answer might well be this simple: Planning Session All good websites come from a good plan. Sounds redundant, but it's true. If you want to create a good and solid website, you need a good and solid plan. I know it's hard to do, and I know you want to keep poking and playing with this exciting program, but it is time to take a break away from your computer and turn to the old paper and pen. That's right, we're going back in time to when people actually wrote things down. On a piece of notebook paper, or whatever is lying around, describe your site. Take five to twenty minutes to come up with a purpose for your site, or better yet, call it your Mission Statement. Answer the following questions:

  • What am I going to do with this?
  • Who is going to read this?
  • What kinds of information will I be posting?
  • Why am I doing this?
  • Who am I doing this for?
  • How often am I going to be posting and adding information?

Now, compile this information into a paragraph so it looks like this:

This website will be dedicated to X, Y, and Z,

and cover the topics of A, B, and C.

The audience will be __________ ________________ _______.

I will be adding posts every _____________

about ________ _______ ______________.

I am doing this because _____________ _____________ __________________.

Just ask, and I'll be happy to take a look.
