General Discussion  - 
 
I've read comics on and off for most of my life and have recently started again with titles such as Saga, Rat Queens, Trees, Copperhead and more. I've been trying to find blogs, sites and YouTube channels for reviews, articles and discussions but am having trouble finding ones that I like. Many of them seem to focus on Supers, which has never been my main interest.

Any tips?

You could rely on aggregators or just go to publisher sites, such as Dark Horse, Top Shelf, Fantagraphics, First Second, etc., who frequently post or link you to interviews with or essays by the creators themselves. It cuts out the middle man. Of course, if it's the publisher's site then it will spin everything positively but the point is, you already know that going in. You don't have to parse a reviewer's rhetoric to figure out their biases, if any. You can get right to the title's premise and probably examples of the art.

Finding a Game  - 
 
Would anyone be up for running a game just for me or one or two other players on rpol.net or a similar site?  Freeform or very rules light would be my peference (HQ is fine).

What I would love to play is someone who is about to convert to the Lunar way, so this would be a main theme of the game.

I don't post quickly, so everyone should be fine with a relatively slow game.

Bug Report  - 
 
Not sure if this belongs here, but I've run into a little snaglet. Now that Google Music is (officially) available to me I decided to try out the Google Music Dev addon  http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=134783
Evrything works fine when I use Yatse as a remote, but when I go directly to Addons ->Google Music Dev -> My Library and any of Artists, Albums etc Yatse tries to fetch the data but fails. The little dot in the corner stays white

No worries, I've posted on the xbmc forum as well. Thanks for the quick reply.

I don't suppose someone out there in RQ-land would be interested in running a game on rpg.net, rpol or some other forum?
Monster Island perhaps?

I haven't installed touch on any of my devices yet, and probably won't untill next version when there'll hopefully be a few more apps.

One app, or rather feature of an app I would find very useful is if the ebook reader (I seem to remember there is one) could use a Calibre database stored on Ubuntu One. I buy ebooks from a variety of shops (mostly from Google books lately) but always download the epub and add it to Calibre which is then saved to a folder synced on uo. DRM would have to be solved somehow I suppose.

If there was an Ubuntu One Book Shop, I'd buy from there as well even if prices were slightly higher :)

I had no idea I wasn't supposed to do that.
And thanks for linking to the instructions, looks like that's what I'll do then :)

I'm thinking of buying a (probably used) tablet to primarily read comics and have two questions.

I may get a Huawei MediaTab 10 link+. Is there an image for Ubuntu for that device, I couldn't find anything on Canonical's  site. If not, Nexus 10?

I know there is an ereader app for ubuntu, how does it handle comics? Can it connect to a server and download the comics? I have a Ubooquity server running on my pi, so it would be nice if I could acess that from within the app.

That may be true, but doesn't answer my questions

First off: Thanks for a great app!
I just discovered that the paid version has streaming and had a question. When I stream music from my xbmc server (a raspberry pi) to my nexus 4 and pick Google Music as the player, all I get is a small box displaying the file name with %20 for spaces and so on. Is it possible to have it display proper id3/flac tags instead? 
Would another music player app be better?

I know there are apps like Paprika and Evernote Food out there, but what would you suggest? I need it to work on Ubuntu and Android.
I'm happier with an app I pay for than one that tries to learn everything about me and my contacts. I'm mostly interested in collecting and organising recipes and don't need to make grocery lists or count calories.

I will soon be taking lots of not very good pictures with a compact camera I just bought used. I will also scan old photos. So, I'll need to learn about image manipulation and Gimp. Like most people, I imagine, I've played a little with images from time to time but I really have very little idea of what I'm doing.

So, I want a good book introducing Gimp  basics, especially with an eye towards photo manipulation. PDF, epub or paper are all options, though obviously the cheaper the better. 
I know there are several books as well as various on-line tutorials available, I basically want to learn why one would suit my needs better than others.
