"Πελλαίον βους μέγαν είν Αιδη."
This was something to the effect that, in the Underworld, a great ox costs only a penny, but I knew what he meant and in spite of myself I laughed. There was a tradition among the ancients that things were very cheap in Hell.

To be fair, the colon is involved later on. in the final stages of consumption.

Every Ubuntu phone ought to monitor its apps and if an app shows UI but does not respond to screen taps then it tells the server, and if an app gets complained about multiple times then it gets removed from the app store. I'm sure my own apps are just as guilty, but it drives me nuts. Keep the ui responsive to the user!

Yeah, don't blame the app because some system component crashed and apport is making the screen unresponsive by using all the CPU.

I wish Ubuntu applications used proper notifications rather than rolling their own.

I wish Ubuntu notifications were dismissable.

Cool, Caxton now has a node.JS wrapper library so it's easy to send push notifications to an Ubuntu phone from a node server or app, courtesy of the excellent +Brian Douglass​. https://www.npmjs.com/package/caxton

Nice! Now you can browse the Ubuntu app store on your desktop and have it install apps on the phone (or jump to those apps on the phone at least)
 
I just added to uApp Explorer the ability to send yourself apps via +Stuart Langridge's Caxton app. Just set it up via the settings when you log in!

Sweet chilli salmon with cocktail prawns and a mustard potato salad. Niamh and I are quite pleased with this.

On +Bad Voltage​ we've been doing a series called "Bad Voltage Fixes The Fucking World", where we look at a particular thing or organisation and talk about some different directions they could take, and then in the next show somebody from that organisation cones on the show to comment or respond. In the most recent show we looked at a more broad thing: mass surveillance. We talked about when it's OK, what limits there should be, and what we can do about it. It would be good to have someone on to talk about it, but... we're not sure who! It should be somebody who is in favour of the idea, so not the EFF or ORG. And its gotta be somebody who will come on the show: we're not going to get the director of GCHQ or the NSA. Did anybody have suggestions?

I think this enquiry needs a bit more dedication and a serious, well-worded, down-to-earth and commited press inquiry.  This is why I'm writing this here, because Stuart seems to have his stuff together and could get it done.

Well, here it should go, if you're ready for it:
http://ironnetcyber.com/contact.html

No, just asking will not put you on a no-fly-list or have your house, family and dog poop observed by spooks. But the podcast will have to be authorized before it airs. Basically you'd need someone in the DC area to get something done. Jono's west coast is a different country. But hell yes, you shoud try to contact IronNet Cybersecurity. Or meet them at Defcon.

At  #edgeconf  this weekend we had lots of really decent educated discussion about the future of the web, and one of the things which came up was that developers are resistant to the term "progressive enhancement", but not to the idea of it, once they understand what the idea of it is (and more importantly what it isn't). So I've written up some of my thoughts in a couple of things:

The second one has pictures, although I don't think that Leonardo da Vinci would be impressed.

If you've used talky.io and therefore know how good it is both as a thing and for open video chat, you should consider backing their crowdfunding drive. If you haven't used it then use it, be impressed, and then consider backing them.

Simple video chat and screensharing for groups. Oh, and we’re open sourcing all the components.

Was about to be disappointed in the direction of the Ubuntu reddit, not because somebody posted a desktop background with text "I'm running Linux, bitch" but because when someone called them out on saying that, one response from a particular moron was "oh do fuck off". And that particular moron is the problem -- much more of a problem than the original post, to be honest. But when I wanted to post a screenshot of this particular moron being the problem, I couldn't find it, and that's because the post has been hidden by the mods because it's against the code of conduct, and the particular moron has deleted their account. So, extremely well done, /r/Ubuntu mods, including Nathan Haines. Small steps, every day, and we get better. Not just to call out wrong behaviour, where a bit of education probably will help, but more importantly to stop those that sneer at people who call it out. I'm glad you deleted your account, particular moron. Don't create another.

As you say, reddit is not, and has never AFAIK claimed to be a democracy. Subreddit mods can, and will, do pretty much anything they damn well please. Really - and I mean this sincerely, not dismissively - what we users can do if we don't like a subreddit is leave it and start our own. Or, ultimately, if Reddit bans us, go make our own website somewhere.

This isn't the public airwaves, where we grant an organization monopoly rights to a bit of it in exchange for "fair and balanced" reporting. Reddit - or, really, any site - is more like a coffee shop, store, or club, and can within very broad limits decide what can and can not go on in there.

OK. Time to actually buy my dad's new computer for his birthday. Requirements: smallish form factor desktop (an Aspire Revo size is OK); no more than £250; runs Ubuntu perfectly. Your suggestions are invited. Gigabyte Brix? Shuttle? eMachines?

Decided on a purchase: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00L2C3VAQ?ref_=cm_cr_pr_product_top plus 8GB RAM and 250GB SSD from Crucial for that Brix.

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.
