Upgrading to Kubuntu 16.04. This is my first upgrade drive I switched to Kubuntu. About to reboot. A little nervous, but this is a long standing distro.

So far, so good. The taskbar is a bit fancier and I think they went to a slightly smaller system font. New icon set. Some of my apache and php settings are hosed up. Got a symlink missing from /sites.

You know, there's Roanoke just up the road a piece, and they've got jobs for pc techs. Floyd's got two computer repair shops and only one traffic light.

Here's a link to a short story I wrote for FASA's steamweird roleplaying game, 1879, with artwork by A.L. Ashbaugh.

In which we get to see a group of heroes facing a dire predicament. Without further ado, the story. Thunderous explosions shook the rapidly disintegrating factory. The five adventurers dodged falling debris and gouts of flame as best they could as they fled the wrath of the owners.

So you can see a couple of the colors our firsts come in. Firsts are available in raw fiber from all of our animals at US $3.00 per ounce.

Do you offer bulk pricing by the pound, or just by the ounce?

These are alpacas, yes. They're a bit on the cantankerous side. My wife spins. We do sell raw fiber and carded batts.

We must protect our families and keep our children from being traumatized while performing necessary functions. Therefore, because Westboro Church exists, I demand that we ban all Christians from attending funerals except for the denomination they were born into. After all, Westboro is a much greater threat, provably, than transgender people. Your logic, Republicans.

I think "Republican Logic" is an oxymoron.

This is Harley, moments after birth, still wet and tousled, with momma Sheeza, not long after Shearing Day. Harley will be up for her second shearing this year. Come to our farm and see how big she's grown.

Andres at the front desk was the only employee actually working. He ran his butt off taking care of us. My wife has fibromyalgia and needs hydrotherapy after long car rides. The pool area opens at 7 according to the sign. At 8:30, it was still locked, and when Andres unlocked it, the hot tub was shut off and stone cold. No hydrotherapy for you. The engineer (didn't get his name) and the other guy whose jacket covered his badge gave us non apologetic apologies. The breakfast was terrible, with little that someone allergic to pork could eat other than carbs. Won't stay here again.

Amazing chicken shawarma sandwich. They sprinkle feta in the olive oil that comes with the appetizer bread.

They do an excellent grilled falafel sandwich, but the best offering is the set-menu breakfast. Do not go by yourself. Take a small group. There's lebneh, hummus, foul, yogurt with honey, sour cream with za'atar and olive oil, black and green olives, scrambled eggs with tomatoes and onions, and they bring out huge rounds of fresh-baked bread until you surrender. I went there with a group of six. Two more of our friends showed up after we had been served. We left with food still on the table, unable to finish it all. Excellent service, friendly staff, and I'm told they set up a good hookah.

Very geek-friendly, with a separate gaming room fitted out with a whiteboard and comfortable chairs, diverse genre decor, and a staff that play the games, watch the movies, and read the books. Brilliant menu, although a bit pricey for the average gamer.

Excellent buffet, with Pakistani-influenced dishes that I don't usually see at an Indian restaurant. Good service, very polite staff. I've been here multiple times and never had a bad experience.

Dunno about their hookahs, but they do an awe inspiring breakfast on Saturday mornings. Bring friends and be prepared to spend serious time with serious amounts of amazing food.
