Woke up with this on my mind. Not sure what it says about my life, but it is a nice refelective song.
We’ve had a bit of a change of personnel on the forums with the staff team.
New additions to the Forum Council:
Bodhi.Zazen and Overdrank have both stepped down from the Forum Council and I would like to thank them for the time, energy and effort they both put into the role. I have learned a lot from both of them. I think the biggest thing I gained was from Bodhi, and it was about being ‘more human’ and trying to have a positive outlook. The world isn’t as bleak as I use to think it was, so thank you.
We’ve also had a shuffle with the moderators on the forum and I would like to welcome:
A few of the moderators have also stepped down, so I would like to wish them well and thank them for the service to the community they have given.
The new list includes the following:

Sorry for the inconvenience.
10 months ago a bug was filed on launchpad concerning updating the official Ubuntu ubiquity slideshow shown during clean installations. It was felt that it did not show other official avenues of support, such as Launchpad Answers and the Ubuntu Forums. Instead it focused on Ask Ubuntu, which while good for providing answers, has nowhere near the member base or community spirit of the other 2.
An update to the slide was provided, highlighting all 3 sites but nobody appears to have done anything with it. The bug currently has 34 comments and heat of 438, so I am not really sure why the update was never implemented. Perhaps someone could get in touch and be amazing and do something about it?
Of course it would be nice if my entry did okay in the vote, but we’ll see how that one goes. Speaking with a few people they’ve given some great feedback on how to make it better. I’ve already started planning out the update, so hopefully it will be implemented soonish, once I learn some more python
If anyone is interested in giving it a run, here is how to install it:
Open a terminal and enter the following commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:silver-fox/myshortcuts sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install myshortcuts
