Waiting For Ubuntu On Phones

I'm still living the Google Drive world with its docs and ALL file format compatibility. I'm checking my google mail on my PC and my phone.And getting notifications wherever I am. I can check what my friends are doing and chat with them. By that I mean give my 5 word comments on twitter or in a growing thread in their blogs.

So do I need one operating system to rule my devices. Certainly not. I can do a lot with a smartphone and its apps. 

Ubuntu's proposition is that a single user experience is the goal. To achieve the goal, the way is one operating system to rule the desktop, laptop, tablet and phone. After Microsoft's domination of personal computing, the suggestion of one OS sitting on all platform is going to be met with doubts even with an open source OS.

As a desktop user and smartphone user, I can believe in the vision of enhancing the user experience. I mean why dock a phone or use a usb when you can just jump from phone to desktop and vice versa.

America Must Evolve Fast Or Die

This was a music festival concert venue in Las Vegas, Nevada. A shooter in the 32nd floor of a nearby hotel across the general area opened fire then shot himself. He killed 59 people in what reports call the biggest mass shooting in modern American history to date.
America must learn from the lessons of previous mass shootings otherwise this tragedy will happen again. Reasonable animals evolve when their lives and the life of the pack or group are threatened. They change how they face the problem and not just move on. They don't dismiss reality. They recognize the problem and listen to reason. For those who say nothing can be done, you're wrong. There is something America can do. It is not premature to talk about gun control. This is the time to talk about it.

GnuCash In Arch Linux

I updated a number of packages today and Gnucash won't start. I immediately went to the Archlinux website to see what's happening. I can't seem to find the package in the community repo. There's a thread in AUR on how to compile Gnucash by hand no AUR helpers.

But I tried to compile goffice and webkit2, needed packages for Gnucash-git. No. It doesn't work for me.

Funny but I'm now using my Android Tablet with Gnucash app to record transactions. This is working. We need to have the stable GnuCash back. This is a stop gap on my part. Transactions don't stop when computers stop. Please don't make me go back to paper.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Poster

The Last Jedi is coming this December 2017. I can't wait. My guess is we can watch it later in the Christmas season or even later than the New Year 2018. The Filipino Film Festival season usually starts the 15th December up to January 7th. Only Filipino films are shown in theaters. Unless there's a special run, we would see it much later.
