Tonight on the CBC Doc Channel, a film about the beginning of Rock on the FM band and the free form DJ's. I am looking forward to seeing this again. http://www.cbc.ca/documentarychannel/docs/i-am-what-i-play. The film includes Canada's David Marsden.
From the 1960s to the 1980s, the rock radio DJ played an unprecedented creative role in the rock music world. Where are they now -- and how did they reinvent themselves as the medium changed?

Upgrade from Ubuntu 14.04 to 16.04 went smoothly, but it took some time. The process cleaned up some old files that were on my computer and now I have 9 gigs more hard drive space than when I started.

Great story. I do believe that whatever it takes to be a great DJ in radio, it can't be taught. That is what they saw in you, and I bet the stations don't have the freedom today to hire a person like you. Unless you are working in the wee hours of the morning on some obscure station, they will not let you be great anyway.
For those of you who remember the days of free form FM radio, I recommend the David Marsden show, Saturday and Sunday evening 8:00 to midnight. Nythespirit.com is where you point your browser to. Then sign into the chat room at marsdenglobal.com. there are a few Linux folks there too.
The first time I paid for a piece of music was back in 1972 which means I was either 12 years old or would, at some point in that year, be 12 years old. The music I bought was a 45 RPM record, a single, by one Sammy Davis Jr. The song, which I'd heard many times on the radio, was "The Candy Man" ...

Years ago, a computer had a bunch of cords attached to it. And because of all of this, we had to have a desk for our computers:
a cord for the mouse
a cord for the keyboard
a cord for the printer
a cord for the monitor
Unless you have a laptop the cord to the monitor is still required. Wireless technology has eliminated the wires, the printer can be anywhere in the house and at times I ask myself "I am still doing things this way because???

John Kerr and Mary Visser Kerr with their cats Thatcher (left) and Miss Pebbles (right). John Kerr and Mary Visser Kerr didn't expect to stumble upon a litter of five newborn kittens on a spring afternoon in early May 1984. The kittens, who belonged to a feral cat, were only a couple of weeks ...

This film includes Canada's David Marsden. It is a good film, a bit of music history that you will enjoy.

All menus in Ubuntu are working as they should after I did an update and upgrade from the command line.
