Thank you Jon, the new 14.04 is fantastic.  My computer is now working like it should.

It's Community Docs Jam today! We want to fix www.ubuntu.com/community
to better represent our community, and who better than our community to
help providing that content? So join us today, pick an area in which
you're interested on https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CommunityWebsite and give
us a hand adding content.

As a reminder, and to provide some more context, here's Jono's original
blog post for this initiative [1]:

Improving Community ‘Getting Involved’ Documentation
----------------------------------------------------

For quite some time now we have had some information about how to join
the Ubuntu community at [www.ubuntu.com/community][]. This documentation
has traditionally been pretty limited, doesn’t really help get people
started effectively, and doesn’t represent the humanity and personal
nature of being part of the Ubuntu community.

We want to change that in this cycle.

At UDS we had a great discussion about solving this problem. The
challenge that we were faced with in refreshing this content is that the
Canonical web team own these pages and have limited bandwidth for
incorporating changes and improvements. As such we agreed to transition
this content to a site where we can more readily make improvements and
updates.

This week I asked Michael Hall to deploy WordPress (which we agreed at
UDS as our platform) with the Ubuntu theme to CanoniStack. Today we had
a discussion to flesh out the information architecture for the site
(largely inspired by the current IA). We are now in a position where we
have the skeleton of the site and we want to produce some awesome
content tuned to the needs of new community members, as well as other
content for our entire community (such as information about governance
and the code of conduct).

To get this content in shape we have created a series of pages on
`pad.ubuntu.com` for each page of content and we are transferring our
existing content to these pages. We as a community can then collaborate
on these pages and ensure they are crisp, concise, and provide all the
information we need. When these pages are complete we can then
transition them to the WordPress instance. When the content is there we
will then ask the Canonical IS team to deploy it.

Help Us! Join the Docs Jam!
===========================

To get this content in shape, on *Thursday 13th Dec 2012* we are going
to be holding a documentation jam to work together and get this content
refined and finalized. This is how it works:

-   You can see the list of pages and the links to the pads [by clicking
    here][].
-   We will spend the day working on the content, refining and improving
    it and ensuring there are no typos.
-   All the content should be writting using [Markdown][] format; this
    makes it simple to write and merge into the WordPress site. For how
    to format your content with Markdown, see [this guide][Markdown].
-   We will coordinate this work in the `#ubuntu-doc` channel.

The day after we will then move the completed content over to the
WordPress site and finalize any stylistic changes. We should then be in
good shape to get things moved over to production.

We are looking to our wider community to help us get this content rock
solid. If you have a few hours (or longer) to help with this effort,
please join us in `#ubuntu-doc` on *Thursday 13th Dec 2013*!

I went, I looked, I'm confused as to how this "pad" works; however, what I saw in the "seeded" areas looked good.  I just don't feel I have the expertise to add in the "needed" areas.

Well, I've been trying for the last year or so to get this thing off the ground, and we just can't seem to get people to show up for IRC meetings. So, here's one alternative we could use. Anyone have any other ideas for getting this group going?

You may want to add the sc loco to the Ubuntu Community page under local communities.

Waiting on #ingressinvite, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
The Enlightened hacked all of their portals with care,
In hopes that the Shapers soon would be there;
Resistance were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of vast blue fields danced in their heads,
And Ma in her 'kerchief and I in my cap,
Had just settled down for a long winter's nap.
When over on my phone there arose such a clatter
I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter.
Away to the charger I flew like a flash,
Pulled up the lock screen and swiped it away fast.
The moon on the breast of the new fallen snow,
Now that's a wallpaper I'd like to download.
When, where did my wandering eyes look instead,
But a notification light, and eight emails unread,
I glanced at the senders, so quick yet thorough,
I knew in a moment it must be St. Joe.
More rapid than eagles his access code came,
And he whistled and shouted and called me by name.
Now, go forth. Now, find them. Now, hack them. Now, blitz 'em.
Enlightened! Resistance! Decode the questions;
To the top of the porch! To the top of the wall!
Now dash away, dash away, dash away, all!
So out to the real world they flew,
With their phones full of maps and Google+, too;
St. Joe sprung to his car, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all rode, like the down of a thistle.
But I heard him exclaim, as he drove out of sight
#ingress invite to all, and to all a good night.

Unable to hack their portals, I have resorted to limiting their mobility. #ingress   #ingressinvite   #ingressenlightened

Looks like pretty standard driving for the #ingressresistance .   Actually, driving and hacking is about the craziest dumb thing I have done recently.  I have nearly ended up looking like this a few times.  Driver and navigator is a much better configuration, when you aren't on foot.

HTC One Max? Can't be that different from the One.

Bummer - not sure what to say there, I can't see anything in the play store listings that could reasonable be a One Max that isn't enabled. The model number didn't show up either.
