It's always about Ubuntu with you, anyone would think they were paying you ;-)

And so here we are, observing that ages old annual tradition that no one believes in any more and no one remembers the point of. Yep, British Summer Time is here!

I can only imagine the productive period at 4am is due to subconscious thought....

Signs I'm settling into Ubuntu Touch, #1: I keep swiping from the left of the screen for the launcher when using CyanogenMod on my old HTC Desire.

I've been watching Juju evolve for a while now and promising myself I'd find the time to have a play with it. I never did, until the last couple of nights.

In response to a post from +Alan Pope about deploying a Minecraft server with two simple Juju commands, +Clive Darra responded asking about a Minetest version of the same.  Since I inadvertently got my boys hooked on Minetest recently and set up a server on our LAN so we can all play together, I figured this was my calling.

So I give you the initial version of the Minetest Server Juju charm to try out and file bugs against!  It still needs a README file, which I'll work on tonight, but until then, if you want to run a server with anything other than default settings you can check out the config-changed hook.

According to daysoftheyear.com, March 26th is "Make Up Your Own Holiday" Day. If you could make up your own holiday, what would it be and why?
