Happy Birthday Ubuntu

Today Ubuntu turns 13.

The first release was Ubuntu 4.10 Each Ubuntu release has a version number that consists of the year and month number of the release. For example, the first release was Ubuntu 4.10 as it was released on 20 October 2004.

I’ve been using Ubuntu since version 5.04 (not always, I regularly switch between Debian GNU/Linux, Linux Mint and Ubuntu).

Ubuntu 17.10 released

Today Ubuntu 17.10 and the official variants are released.

This is a intermediate version with only 9 months of support, therefore it’s not recommended for daily use.

If you need / want help with installing or upgrading leave a reply or send me a message.

Dutch support

Phatch broken in Linux

After installing Linux Mint 18.2 LTS MATE, I noticed that Phatch could not start.

Searching the forums I found a solution, unfortunately it didn’t work for me.

Fortunately there is a newer version in the Ubuntu repositories, so I downloaded and installed the artfull version (Ubuntu 17.10).

Lifeliner 2 at Park Esdoornlaan

Today there was a lifeliner (medical air assistance) in the park.
The pilot was so kind to open the doors so we could take pictures inside.

And taking off, returning to base

A big family

Lately there is a big group of swans at the park nearby my house.
A couple with 8 young ones.
Btw, watch out for the cat 😉

Free Money Day

Free Money Day is an annual, global day of sharing.

On September 15, people hand out their own money to complete strangers (two coins/notes at a time) asking the recipients to pass half on to someone else. It’s a chance to raise awareness and start conversations about the benefits of economies based on sharing, as well as offer a liberating experience to inspire more critical and creative thinking about our relationships with money and how we can have new types of economic activity.

Since 2011, more than 200 events have been held across 36 countries. This September 15th, join us for the world’s most intriguing social experiment: what happens when you offer money to complete strangers?!

From Picasa Web Albums to Flickr

After Google abandoned Picasa Web Albums my pictures were moved to Google Photo’s. And that sucks. With Picasa I could share a link to my albums with any one, whether they had a Google account or not. With Google Photos? Forget it. So I’ve downloaded all the albums and will upload them to Flickr.
Here is the first album : a concert by Aussie Floyd (an Australian Pink Floyd tribute band), at the World Forum The Hague, 2012 April 29.
