This is worth your time reading. It is why cartoonists must find more modern methods of publishing

Today is a BOO HISS BOO kind of day after trying to upgrade from Ubuntu 13.10 to 14.04.  The upgrade gave me no problems on one of my PC's so I was surprised to have such problems on my laptop.  Of course, the laptop is where I play with all kinds of programs and packages.

I shouldn't have been surprised that the upgrade failed with the dreaded "failed to calculate upgrade" error.  I've tried several fixes that helped other people but so far nothing works for me.

Again -- BOO HISS BOO. #ubuntu   #errors   #failtocalculate

This is an honest assessment of something cartoonists talk about all the time. It is also why so many cartoonists are looking for more ways to publish their work other than relying on traditional venues. #cartoons #politicalCartoon #selfpublishing #syndicates

The following illustrates my messed up graphics after upgrading to Ubuntu 14.04. This is my conky display after the data writes over itself. This manifests after I open an app window then close it.

It has never worked well with my graphics card. In the past it would react to a closing window by ignoring the defined invisible background and turn into an ugly solid background but at least the data was visible and clearly readable.

What is the status of Intel Graphic device drivers in Ubuntu?  I'm running 14.04 on my laptop and the graphics is horrible.  I have a Mobile Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD. Ubuntu 14.04 states the graphics is Mobile Intel GM45 Express Chipset x86/MMX/SSE2 & I don't know the specific graphic driver it is trying to use for the graphic chip (it is embedded on the motherboard)

+Jean Lotz I'm pretty sure that i915 (the driver that is identified) is already the correct driver for your Intel graphics controller.  When you say the graphics is horrible, to what symptoms are you referring?

BTW:  I am using the same Intel graphics driver on a not very new Lenovo laptop and for what I do (browsing, youtube, playing DVDs, Google Earth - NO video games), the graphics is adequate.

Employment
  • Self
    artist, present
    I enjoy drawing cartoons, line work and painting. I have also enjoyed wood carving in the past. I work part time on a temp basis to help a friend in a legal office as needed if I'm able -- currently setting up quick books for them.
  • AAUW
    Social Media Committee, 2013
    I was the chair of the AAUW Social Media Committee from the start of the AAUW Social Media Task Force, then committee till July 2013. Before this I researched social media platforms (including Second Life) for possible use for AAUW and other nonprofits.
  • Shell Oil Company
    CAD/Oracle programmer, 1980 - 1995
    I worked for the drafting department at Shell as Oracle database software administrator for CAD, user support on IBM mainframe, Unix, VAX, PC, MAC and CAD specialties such as Auto-Trol and MicroStation machines. I also migrated files from a turnkey typesetting system into Auto-Trol so the old system could be retired. In the days of Mac's not talking nice to PC's, a lot of my efforts was finding ways to share files between all these machines from the MAC's which were the odd balls of the whole system.

Story
Tagline
AAUW advocate for equity and respect for women & girls.
Introduction
I love art and photography. I'm absolutely nuts about cartoons - especially political & social cartoons.

Some people call me an old hippie because of my strong feminist views and out spoken ways but it is ridiculous to be labelled "radical" for only expecting equity and respect for women and girls today.

I try to be non-partisan and vote independently. I will speak out against those I feel do NOT deserve your vote but I typically do not make endorsements.

I AM NOT PRO-ABORTION, but must be pro-choice. I would prefer women choose life but I accept that only they and their doctors can make this difficult choice.

Please know that there is help when life and kids get too hard --  CALL " 2 1 1 "  FOR HELP.
Bragging rights
I am the past chair of the AAUW Social Media Committee from the conception of the Social Media Task Force through July 2013
