This weekend, Midwest Gaming Classic

I hope that none of you missed my previous post about the Midwest Gaming Classic.
Officially it starts tomorrow morning at 10am, 3-24-12, and goes until 8pm. Admission is $20.
Sunday it goes from 10am until 5pm but admission is only $10 because it's family day.
It's no PAX as far as attendance but the 2 gentlemen that started it back in 2001 put their hear and sole into making it the best gaming show they can. It continues to grow in attendance numbers and new activities every year.
I look forward to seeing everyone there as there is something from everyone. From gaming vendors, free arcade games to try and play to tournaments.

New YouTube layout should be OPTIONAL, petition

YouTube's "new" layout will be forced upon the entire YouTube community. Many don't like it merely because they are used to creating backgrounds for the "old" layout. Myself, I don't care. It will require many channels to have to go get a new background and I do YouTube backgrounds so it may be some work for UbuTech LLC so it's ok with me. Many YouTube channels are kids or people without the skill required to create GFX or even spend money so there's a petition to make the new YouTube layout be optional.

Go HERE and sign it IF it matters to you.

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin) Beta 1 Released

I'm very excited about this new LTS (Long Term Support) version of my favorite operating system Ubuntu. There's many changes that are needed IMO from past versions of Ubuntu but most of all, it's finally another LTS release.
My home computer environment requires stability for many reasons but the main one is whats commonly referred to as the "WAC" factor. That stands for "Wife and Child" factor. Meaning as long as everything (media streaming wise as well as MythTV) is running good they're happy. So my home network must be stable and always online.

You can find the BETA for download at the normal locations so go get it and put it in a VM. Post comments on what you like and don't.

PS this is posted from my iPhone so I will post links later when at my workstation.
