The new website is a mess on my galaxy note 4. I'm happy to QA any changes, just drop me a message.

It's a cache-related bug then. Perhaps the site doesn't properly use ETags?

Do you want the dock to show on all of your monitors? Check out my new post.

A comment on my original article, combined with a holdiay, created an opportunity for improvement. While my previous post provided a method to manually specify 2+ docks, this was not ideal for situations where the number of monitors frequently changes. With that in mind I created a small app ...

I created an app called Safe for elementary OS that allows you to create encrypted containers to hold sensitive files. It uses https://www.dyne.org/software/tomb under the hood to handle all of the complex parts. I'm sure it has lots of bugs which you all will find and tell me about. 

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:heathbar/safe
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install safe

For security reasons, Safe will not work when swap is enabled. For now you can run: "sudo swapoff -a" to disable the swap. In the future, perhaps Safe will disable and re-enable your swap for you.

Has anyone worked with glib-compile-resources + vala? I've successfully generated a .c file, but I'm not sure what goes in the cmake file to make the magic happen. Do I need a VAPI for that?

EDIT: Pixbuf.from_inline seems to be another options, but I'm still unclear, once I get the data file, how do I include it in the project?

Alt+Tab cycles through windows correctly, but Alt+Shift+Tab cycles through the same direction when it should cycle backwards. Is that something I messed up, or does this happen for anyone else?

If I change it to something else, I can get it to correctly cycle backwards, but if I set it to Alt+Shift+Tab, it goes forwards.

I installed from elementaryos-stable-0.3.1-amd64.20150903.iso, which I pulled from http://elementary.io After installation there is an icon that's named "install release" which seems to launch ubiquity. Did I goof something up or is this expected behavior? Note: this is on the installed system, not the live cd.

+Heath Paddock, Plank is separate from elementary. Plank can do whatever it wants, although they of course follow elementary's principles to some degree.

Besides if you create a bug now it'll probably get confirmed by Rico anyways.

So...it's elementary with a different wallpaper?

Mangaka is a not-so-traditional Linux distro with a gorgeous look. After gaining some traction among fans of the manga and anime communities, Mangaka fell dormant in December 2009. Developer Animesoft International regrouped, and the latest Release Candidate version came out on June 20. The Mangaka Project -- the name means "love" in Japanese -- started out with the code name of "AngelOS."

They are perfectly within their rights to change the wallpaper and rebrand. I just wonder, what's the point? Seems like a lot of effort.

No, it is just a front panel to my desktop. One USB cable goes out the back to my tower.
