The passing of FiftyOneFifty

It is with deep sadness we announce that another of our hosts and friends Donald Grier, known to us as FiftyOneFifty, has passed away.

FiftyOneFifty's frat brother Randy Hall has written an lovely piece. The team at Linuxlugcast are preparing our own tribute if you want to contribute an audio file you can email Honkeymagoo or join the show.

Our thoughts go out to his friends and family at this difficult time.

Aaaand I gave up on this one about twenty minutes in when birtherism came up. I really like the concept of the new year show, but it feels like it's gone completely off the rails.

Fact check Scotland brexit not 100%

Scotland has voted in favour of the UK staying in the EU by 62% to 38% - with all 32 council areas backing Remain.


Turnout in Scotland was 67%

New Episode Title: Conspriacy Gate!

WOW! this show was something else. I didn't realize there were so many conspiracy wonks in the group.

Regarding the !00% figure on Scotland voting to remain, I think he was referring to 100% of the areas, not actual voters. I assume Ken's quote 'with all 32 council areas backing Remain.' confirms that.

Windows on top

Windows actually supports the always-on-top function. It just has no GUI means of activating it. But some programs use it, most prominently media players.

There are third-party tools which make it available globally, such as Ac'tivAid, written by the staff of German computer magazine c't. A quick English installation guide is at
Ac'tivAid also brings other Linux-Goodies, such as drag a window with Alt+LMB.
