Scroll through and check out some of the good stuff.

Discover any cool talks you missed the first time around?

Well, it's 2016. Election year inthe United States.

Time to un-circle all the otherwise-sane-and-clever people who suddenly start broadcasting their political views.

Thanks, but not interested this time around. See you guys again in late November.

Updated the "Remove Old Kernels" wiki page. Too many people showing up in the help forums confused by it and with still-broken systems.

Added a link to LP: #137093, since that's the most promising fix in process. I sure hope that fix lands in 16.04 soon....

Also added a working (and explained) sample kernel removal that should work for most users; just four commands.

Also added a 'Regular Maintenance' section, to you can prevent it from happening again. The second time is your fault.

Also added resolution for the most common folow-on effect: Version mismatches and the corresponding apt errors.

Now you can be confused for all-new reasons!
Due to Bug #1357093, the start up list (GRUB) becomes longer over time as new kernels are added. Never remove your current kernel, else your computer will not boot up. It is also generally advised to keep the most recent previous version in case you discover problems with your current kernel.

Is your team ready for the Ubuntu Online Summit (UOS), 03-05 November 2015?

Has your team updated it's Find-a-Task roles for newly-inspired volunteers?

Also, bring suggestions on how to improve Find-a-Task to the Community Roundtable!

I've been riding bike for 30 years.Taught my kids to obey the traffic laws and be defensive riders. Finally somebody else says it.

"Riders have a responsibility as well. After my accident, I became more conscious of obeying traffic laws, including stopping and staying put at red lights. I've tried to be a smarter, more defensive rider"
After a close call five years ago, a commitment to defensive riding.

It's sad pedistrians and cyclists are treated like speed bumps. An minor inconvenience should you happen to hit one at speed. Why bother to see if you killed or damaged them? The law is on your side; it's there fault.

The sound on the recordings is very poor. Any chance of fixing this? Thanks!

Hey Support Gurus: Remember to encourage happy Ubuntu users to get involved. Find-a-Task makes it very easy. Send them there!

If you haven't tried Ubuntu Find-a-Task yet, take a moment and browse it.

There's a spike in support requests ...and user interest in volunteering... during December and January. Help capture those volunteers and make Ubuntu better!

Hey Team Leaders: Time to make your list and check it twice. Are your Find-a-Task roles are correct? Are your new-volunteer landing pages accurate, friendly, and easy to follow?

The Ubuntu Online Summit has added an overflow session on Find-a-Task, the Ubuntu community's volunteer job board. The job board tries to link volunteers with a wide range of jobs that need to be done.

Does it work?
Have you tried it?
Do you know anyone who has joined a team after using it?
Is your team listed on it?
How can it be improved?
Is it the best gateway for undecided new volunteers?

Join us tomorrow, 05 Nov at 1800 UTC to discuss the future of Find-a-Task, and the best ways to recruit new Ubuntu Members.

Watch Live at http://summit.ubuntu.com/uos-1511/meeting/22644/growing-new-community-members/
Or join us on freenode IRC:  # ubuntu-uos-overflow

See you there!
