@DestinationLinux hey guys! Finally sent in an email comment to you guys, $7 Ethiopian stool picture included :-)
Overshadowed from the news of the big #Unity8 and #Mir merge into devel at @ubports, we also silently published a new version of the #UBportsInstaller yesterday, which finalizes some things we've been working on over the past months!
If you've been having issues with the installer before, you'll definitely appreciate this. We've closed over a hundred issues on the installer repo over the last three months!
Update your installer now, you won't regret it! https://github.com/ubports/ubports-installer/releases/tag/0.4.3-beta

I'm reading the first chapter of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. Forty years ago Pirsig was writing about his riding buddies not being able to cope with technology, so they bury their head in the sand about it.
I feel like if he was writing it today, maybe he'd be talking about online privacy. Except today, the poeple that can't cope with it are in the majority, and there isn't any Budda or Godhead to be found in those privacy-destroying systems.
@linuxlads Hey guys, really liking your take on the podcast. I am a US citizen in Ethiopia doing IT work for language development communities.
About 400 are using www.wastalinux.org which I developed as a customized Ubuntu with our language tools, etc. pre-installed.
@ubports I can't get a topic through at the forum since it keeps getting flagged as spam for some reason, but here goes:
Would Treble take care of *all* or mostly all of the hardware / kernel level things so that if the phone supports Treble then it should work with #UbuntuTouch?
I am so excited! I am co-hosting #FLOSSWeekly today and the timing couldn't be better. We're interviewing Hillel Coren of #invoiceninja . I am big fan of Invoice Ninja and have been following it for years. Check it out at 9:30am Pacific (in 3 hours) at https://twit.tv/live
