Used this trick now to reduce the screen space the title bar consumes; added "font-size: 0.6em;" to the first section to make the title bar font a bit smaller, too.

If this doesn't shine a floodlight on the impact of competition in the ISP access marketplace, nothing can. Proof that when a dominant ISP doesn't have effective competition, they feel free to screw consumers. It's right there in black and white!
Comcast's only price is $140 when it doesn't have to compete against Google.

Ubuntu 16.04 wifi issues return & colord no longer works.
Fedora 24 soldiers on - dual-booting FTW. #Linux

We here at Android Authority get a lot of feedback about the devices running our favorite operating system. However, the most negative comments usually have to do with battery life. And it makes sense: there’s nothing more frustrating than having this magical powerhouse of microtechnology suddenly die on you at 5pm, right as you were trying to make dinner plans.Because literally everyone owning a smartphone has experienced this problem, it’s no s...

Upgraded my System76 Kudo Pro (2014) to Ubuntu 16.04 (from 15.10). Upon issuing a 'systemctl reboot' from the command line, or shutting down via the GUI, I now get the gray Apple logo screen, with pulsing Apple logo. This laptop has never seen OS X.

Using the default them and background. Changed to Numix theme and background, and Apple logo still appeared. Not a big deal, but strange.

(Pardon the sound of my 2-year old in the background)

SOLVED: Seems there is a bootsplash theme from noobslab PPA installed.  The package name is mbuntu-bscreen-v3 and it shows up in /lib/plymouth/themes/   

What irks me more about this is that it's a blatant rip-off of Apple's design and uses their trademark.  Amateur hour. 

So yeah, note to self: When you install third-party themes and find yourself not using them, remove them.  They probably reach further into the system than you realize. Sigh.
