I think I finally have enough time to do a links post. Some of these will be a tad old-ish, but they’re things I’ve seen while I was dealing with getting Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope properly installed (and getting Evolution set back up since I forgot to do a proper backup and was pretty much back at square one of importing data from Thunderbird).
- Edward A. Robinson: Limited Edition Jaunty Jackalope T-shirts. While not as cute as the Intrepid tees, Ubuntu has come out with a limited edition tee that I may have to see if I can coax Nanci (or another family member) might get me for my (upcoming) birthday.
- Andrew Zajac: Version 9.04. Andrew has info on the latest version of Ubuntu Rescue Remix, which includes the “best free-libre, open source data recovery and forensic tools available”. I may have to throw it on either a CD-RW or a flash drive, and keep it updated, just in case I end up needing it. I could have really used it back when I kicked Windows off my comp and accidentally blew away a few thousand audio files that I hadn’t backed up yet. (Yeah, you’d think I’d have learned to back up my data by now. Me too.)
- Emma Jane Hogbin: Presenting online. Emma has some really nice tips for you if you ever find yourself having to create a presentation to give online.
- Lior Kaplan: OpenOffice.org 3.1 New Features. The latest update to the very popular open source productivity suite came out the other day and Lior has links to a nice listing of what the new features are.
- Paolo Sammicheli: Jaunty under Android. This Planet Ubuntu member got the latest version of Ubuntu working on his G1 phone. And as far as I know he’s still able to make calls with it.
- DesktopLinux.com: Anti-malware software upgraded for Linux. AVG Technologies has an update for GNU/Linux users who want to scan their systems for malicious code.
- Mighel de Icaza: Smooth Streaming with Moonlight. Miguel has good news for those who want to be able to enjoy Microsoft’s Silverlight technology on their Linux boxes.
- Jaldhar Vyas: Shaka, When the Firewall Fell. Some of you will recognize that title as a modified version of a line from a very well done episode of a sci-fi television show. If you liked the original, and you like GNU/Linux, you’ll love Jaldhar’s version.
For those who haven’t gotten their free Ubuntu 9.04 disks yet, I have links to posts from Søren Bredlund Caspersen, Hollman Enciso, and David Thomas showing the new circle-of-friends-free (and IMO nice looking) packaging for the LiveCDs for Jaunty.
I’m going to call it a lid, and I hope everyone who is able will contact their mom and wish them a happy day for tomorrow. Just remember, not all gifts will bring the intended result.
