Do I completely misunderstand how autossh works? If I autossh <somewhere> then kill -9 the ssh process, autossh dies too; it doesn't restart.

No, sadly. This isn't an interactive connection; it's for port forwarding

I did some play testing on this. Yes, it's maths, but if you can add numbers you can do this, and it's actually quite an interesting little puzzle mechanic.
 
Time for a new "game" only for #UbuntuPhone :)

Many thanks to +Stuart Langridge for all his help testing the app and solving design issues and +Sam Hewitt for his nice Ubuntu Icon Resource Kit [1] which I used to create the application icon.
Yes, the icon is not perfect, but I wanted to try myself on creating an Ubuntu icon with Inkscape ... so suggestions welcome :)

I loved my Nexus 6 but it decided to go swimming. Pretty happy with the Nexus 6P.

+David Klasinc heya: just discovered that Kazam in 16.04 doesn't have the show-mouse-clicks stuff available. Is there a release planned at some point?

I like books which involve jury-rigging ingenious technical solutions to problems with what you've got on hand. The most obvious recent example is The Martian, of course, but there's also Randall Garrett's Hanging By A Thread (http://www.gutenberg.org/files/30308/30308-h/30308-h.htm) which is admittedly a short story, and the ur-example is obviously The Mysterious Island by Jules Verne. Are there more of this sort of thing? Speak your recommendations now!

thanks. I like this kind of stuff too. I got the epub for Hanging By A Thread, and will give it a try.

Interesting. Users of HaxeFlixel (a popular game framework) raise enough to pay the project founder to work on it full time for a couple of years (!). So, fundraising to pay for open source does work, and very successfully. However, he only needs $6000pa because he lives in Russia. So, maybe one way to successfully fund your open source project is to not have the funded developers live in expensive places :)

+Alan Pope no. Don't go looking for developers elsewhere just because they're cheaper. A reasonably sized project will likely have developers who happen to live in cheaper places anyway (and if it doesn't, then the project is likely missing out on a big chunk of potential contributors, which is a problem they ought to be fixing anyway; diversity is a good idea). And then, when putting together funding, maybe choose those people with whom the money will go further; even if one thinks that the best developer in the project lives in San Francisco, maybe the fourth best could do twelve times as much work for the same money, and nobody's that good. (Don't believe all that 10X programmer mythology bullshit.) That is: don't pick new developers because they're cheap, bit maybe consider picking the cheaper of your existing developers. A fine line, perhaps, but I think it's a real distinction.

I did not understand most of the jargon in here. But then you see a phrase like "the challenge is to remove the SiGe in the gaps that measure 15 angstroms or less" and all I can think is, damn, I'm glad I'm not a chip engineer. 15 angstroms? Bloody hell.
 
Scaling down to 5nm is going to be painfully expensive: http://semiengineering.com/going-to-gate-all-around-fets/
What Transistors Will Look Like At 5nm As finFETs run out of steam after 7nm, what comes next? The debate is just beginning.

These paintings of Ubuntu mascot animals are really good! http://www.boredpanda.com/ive-just-painted-all-25-ubuntu-animals/
Hello! I’m Sylvia, an artist, illustrator and game developer from Germany. I’m a huge fan of the open source operating system Ubuntu and I love to paint animals. The Ubuntu releases inspired me to create a series of illustrations, each illustration depicting an animal from a release, in chronological order.

Heh. Stage at #fosstalk for the final show. +David Megins-Nicholas looks apprehensive, +Joe Ressington looks pugnacious, and I look like I'm disagreeing with whoever's point I'm opposing :)

Good beers; a modern, stripped wood feel. Quite trendy.

Slick professional-looking place near the Bullring. They did a great job cutting my hair; used the cut-throat razor for really close sideburns and edges; a quick wash and dry; and only £12. Recommended.

Excellent restaurant. Just up from a street full of places to eat; this is higher-end than most, and worth it. I recommend the poitrine de cochon confite unreservedly. Friendly waiters, good wine, a good menu.
