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

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 ...

How Overleaf got me into LaTeX - a chat with Finance Professor Brian M Lucey: https://www.overleaf.com/blog/299
I’m pretty much a convert to Overleaf and delighted to be using it. After years of avoiding LaTeX this has done the job for me.

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" ...

Some LaTeX composition can be done faster using a spreadsheet application.

I just discovered HostMath. Very impressive, not that I have any need for it, I but HostMath http://www.hostmath.com/Default.aspx makes writing math equations in LaTeX much easier.
Input LaTeX, Tex, AMSmath or ASCIIMath notation (Click icon on the toolbar to switch to ASCIIMath mode) to make formula instantly. Math; GK&Fun; Logic; Arrow; Symbol; Format. Show External URL. Show Embeded Code. Show MathML Code. \[{}\]. `{}`. Copy and paste the code above to your webpage!

Is there a glut on the market for USB drives and media cards?

In the past month I have been in three stores where I have noticed that the price of USB flash drives has taken a nose dive. In one store I purchased two 32 GIG drives for under $16.00 each. It looks like sub 50 cents a gigabyte is here.
Staples has a pack of three 8 GIG flash drives for $14.00.
Then there was that 128 GIG flash drive on Amazon for some ridiculous low price a few weeks ago. +Ken Starks do you recall the price?
It looks like the smallest drive made these days is an 8 gig and we will pay between $6 - $9. That looks like the price to make any drive, because many 16 gig drives do not cost much more than that, selling at the $10 price point. Jump up to 32 GIGs and we are at the $16 point or less.

Is there a glut? Has cloud storage taken over???
What do you think?

Has the cost actually dropped because it doesn't cost much to make these? Competition drives consumer prices, sometimes.
