Ubuntu Users Should Be Subscribed to The Security Mailing List

If you use Ubuntu Linux, then any security announcement from its developers and Canonical should concern you.


++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

This is a follow-up to the End of Life warning sent last month to
confirm that as of today (May 16, 2014), Ubuntu 12.10 is no longer
supported.  No more package updates will be accepted to 12.10, and
it will be archived to old-releases.ubuntu.com in the coming weeks.

The original End of Life warning follows, with upgrade instructions:

Ubuntu announced its 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal) release more than 18 months
ago, on October 18, 2012.  Since changes to the Ubuntu support cycle
mean that Ubuntu 13.04 has reached end of life before Ubuntu 12.10, the
support cycle for Ubuntu 12.10 has been extended slightly to overlap
with the release of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.  This will allow users to move
directly from Ubuntu 12.10 to Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (via Ubuntu 13.10).

This period of overlap is now coming to a close, and we will be retiring
Ubuntu 12.10 on Friday, May 16, 2014.  At that time, Ubuntu Security
Notices will no longer include information or updated packages for
Ubuntu 12.10.

The supported upgrade path from Ubuntu 12.10 is via Ubuntu 13.10, though
we highly recommend that once you've upgraded to 13.10, you continue to
upgrade through to 14.04, as 13.10's support will end in July.

Instructions and caveats for the upgrade may be found at:

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SaucyUpgrades
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/TrustyUpgrades

Ubuntu 13.10 and 14.04 continue to be actively supported with security
updates and select high-impact bug fixes.  Announcements of security
updates for Ubuntu releases are sent to the ubuntu-security-announce
mailing list, information about which may be found at:

https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-security-announce

Since its launch in October 2004 Ubuntu has become one of the most
highly regarded Linux distributions with millions of users in homes,
schools, businesses and governments around the world. Ubuntu is Open
Source software, costs nothing to download, and users are free to
customize or alter their software in order to meet their needs.

On behalf of the Ubuntu Release Team,

Adam Conrad

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.
