Playing DVDs in Ubuntu 14.04

Playing DVDs used to be easy just install Ubuntu restricted extras or install VLC media player but at several recent installfests this did not work. Thanks to wmack he found the answer in the links below. Due a legal change you now must Buy the Fluendo DVD Player or open the Ubuntu Software Center search for and install libdvdread4 and libdvdnav4 and/or Ubuntu restricted extras then just copy and paste the folloiwing in a terminal
sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/install-css.sh

legal issues aside this will make it play and work

Sierra Vista Ubuntu Hour

The inaugural Sierra Vista Ubuntu Hour was held from 1730-1830 on 24 July 2014 at the Sierra Vista Public Library foyer. There were four Arizona Loco team members in attendance, three of which drove from the Phoenix area to ensure the success of this inaugural event. Two people stopped by and expressed an interest in having Ubuntu installed on their computer. I will accomodate them this next week. A good time was had by all present before, during, and after the Ubuntu Hour.

Ralink-based wifi access point in Linux - frequent dropouts on Windows clients

One of my recent projects was built around an Intel Atom system. One of its functions was to be a wireless access point. The chip that was in use was an Ralink 8192, hooked up through a USB port. A lot of clients (Windows, Android, iPhone) either dropped the connection frequently, or wouldn't connect at all.
This block describes a remedy.

REMOVE OLD KERNELS

I tend to be on #ubuntu to help others. Today, an interesting question
popped up, how do I clean the old linux images and headers?

Each linux image / header has its own dir in /usr/src/

Let's start, uname -a ... do NOT remove this image

Let's do a sudo apt-get update ... make sure it is clean

If, for some reason, you get errors, try sudo apt-get -f install (fix broken)

Let's get a list of all the images, dpkg -l | grep linux-image
