Sorry if I haven't made alot of posts, but I've been spending more of my time working on stuff in the Ubuntu community. If you want to follow what I'm doing, follow my feed on Identi.ca.

Well, today is my birthday, I'm 24!

... I wish I had more to say, especially since it's been so long since I made a post, but oh well.
If anybody wants to keep up on what I'm doing, I spend most of my time in the Ubuntu community doing misc. stuff, mostly updating the gmpc-trunk ppa. You can see my micro-blog posts at http://identi.ca/ripps.

It's been a while since I mentioned anything about the my Dust Cold theme on Livejournal, so I decided to post an update.

Resynced Dust Cold with Dust from bazaar branch. Now at version 0.4.0. Lots of changes, go take a look.

Synced Dustfox Cold with Dustfox from bazaar branch. No longet need to keep seperate versions for firefox-3.0 and firefox-3.1.

Added Nodoka Dust Cold. My version of the Nodoka Dust theme, it's very pretty and I fixed a couple issues the original Nodoka Dust had (e.g. Evolution new button). You'll need to use the git version of the Nodoka engine. I've built packages for that in my PPA:
https://launchpad.net/~ripps818/+archive/ppa

Created Launchpad bazaar branches for Dust Cold and Dustfox Cold, so you guys don't have to wait until I upload a package to Gnome-Look.org anymore.

Packages are available here:

I'm trying to help out new users upgrading to Jaunty in the #ubuntu IRC chatroom. But, man, is it busy. The most annoying thing is the people who get rude with the volunteers who are just trying to help.

Finally, Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope is released.
I've been using it for months now, since it was in Alpha. But I have to say, Jaunty is probably the fastest and cleanest version of Ubuntu yet. Everything works great.

Anybody wanting to install Ubuntu 9.04, or just take it for a test drive without installing anything, you can download a CD ISO here:

Well, I've been downgraded from a Paid account to a Plus account. I decided not to buy it this year because I simply don't have the money to pay for a service a barely use. I just wish I could've chosen which userpics to keep. A couple have become invalid, particularily the one's I made myself. Instead of the one's that I actually use, I get to keep the south park and matrix userpics that I've used only once.

I'm now the proud owner of the GMPC Trunk team on Launchpad.net.
Feel free to use the PPA to install the latest version of GMPC and it's plugins.

If you don't know what GMPC is, it's a graphical client for the greatest music playing app in linux, MPD.
