So, just to be clear, you'll essentially be allowing this account to go fallow?

I just heard that, after a long illness, Dennis Ritchie (dmr) died at home this weekend. I have no more information.

I trust there are people here who will appreciate the reach of his contributions and mourn his passing appropriately.

He was a quiet and mostly private man, but he was also my friend, colleague, and collaborator, and the world has lost a truly great mind.

At least I didn't have to look up what the adjective meant this time so I guess that's progress!

Irony: I think GNOME Shell 3.2's user menu looks more like the traditional Ubuntu "MeMenu" than Ubuntu 11.10's new user menu.

But both menus are fairly similar. Ubuntu adds extra buttons (printer, webcam, scanner, display settings, startup applications [too much prominence for this power user feature], direct access to shutdown and hibernate [too bad hibernate doesn't work in many cases], guest mode, and a bunch more messaging status stuff and therefore has to split the functionality into 3 separate menus. GNOME adds a one-click "do not disturb" button and makes the user settings button a little less obvious (click the picture). And GNOME uses the notification bar as a rather different implementation of Ubuntu's messaging menu in addition to the notification's other features.

It's a fine line, the GNOME shell menu is cleaner and probably more usable in 'most cases', which is the GNOME philosophy, but it also risks making 'advanced' features like shutdown (!!) completely undiscoverable.

What? Nexus One won't officially get Ice Cream Sandwich?!! That means the Nexus One only got 1 year of feature updates. Lame move, Google.
Google has confirmed that it will update the existing Nexus S handset to new Ice Cream Sandwich Android software in the next few weeks, but has also said that its original Nexus One is ‘too old’...

yeah I was also shocked to learn that I won't be getting an official OTA update onto my Nexus One. However, it's already been ported onto the N1 with some glitches here and there. I'm sure someone will release the ROM soon and my N1 will rejoice with Ice Cream Sandwich.

The rest of GNOME 3 has just landed in Debian unstable (look at all of the green on the chart!). Thanks to all those working on it!

My eyes hurt for the first day or so after switching my default monospace font to Ubuntu Mono but I think I've got used to it. I had to bump the size up to 12 though as I had trouble reading the 11. The font is intentionally smaller so that it doesn't look like the regular Ubuntu font but that logic is lost on me.

I made my first upload directly to Ubuntu today. I'll admit I was a bit worried that I'd do it wrong and break the archives but everything seems to have gone ok. And now I can add Ubuntu Desktop Developer to my resume, so today is a very good day!
