I and many others spent basically all day there yesterday. It's fun to look through all of these manuals. It takes a lot of concentration picking out the unique copies and leaving the many copies behind. Especially HP.. arg so, so many revisions of the same manual.
The kindness requirement is awesome and refreshing. I was shocked just how much vitriol gets spewed in an average workplace, directed at customers, fellow employees, inanimate objects. I gravitate towards the people I work with that aren't like that, so specifying 'kindness' right up front is great.
Thanks for your concern, but we don't see a point in just removing it in git because it doesn't really help. the key is in several branches, in our iso file, every rockstor rpm in our yum repo and not to mention lot of users who have downloaded rockstor.
We changed the key in our live demo, but for our users we'll roll out the fix in the next update. As part of that fix, we'll also remove the key file from git.
I think that's a reasonable plan. Hope I am not missing something.
I keep wondering whether they still have something up their sleeve, but judging by them dropping the price, its not the case. This is the pinnacle of Mark Shuttleworth's "convergence" dream, I wonder whether he will carry the rest of this campaign if it looks like it will not get funded in the end? Also if it does fail, it is going to look mighty bad for Canonical.

I also thought about this, but I'm not sure that's the case. At the very least, they managed to collect close to $10 million in a a two week period, without much of an advertising budget and only some vague on-paper specs and a few renders.
I think that gives them some leverage when negotiating with manufacturers to show that there is at least some demand for high-priced smartphones running their software stack.
Why is it going to look mighty bad for Canonical if it fails? For one, this was a self-claimed experiment. And two, these phones are priced the same as a decent laptop. If anything it proves people aren't willing to shell out $800 for a phone 9 months from now. However, I think it also shows that people do in fact want an Ubuntu phone.
A few months ago I had some trouble with BofA flagging my card for "suspicious activity." I had to go in and get a new card twice over two months. The only change I can think of is that I switched hosting to DigitalOcean.
I had been thinking of switching banks for awhile, but this ended up being the biggest motivator to finally pull the trigger.
My Chase cards seem to get compromised somewhat regularly but it's never been an issue. I get a robocall that asks me to press 1 if fraudulent, 2 if legit. Obviously I indicated that the DigitalOcean charge was fine.
Whenever I've had an actual fraudulent charge, Chase has just overnighted me a replacement card, both with my business and personal cards. They've got wonderful customer service.
I have seen a $780 purchase in one of my card (which is only used online in App Store, PayPal, Amazon and Linode) on April 27th. I dispute the purchase and request reissue of the card immediately. Since I also use this card physically few times (all before Linode incident) I wouldn't say for sure that Linode was responsible. (I'm not located in US but the purchase was from online store in US, I suspect it might be compromised online by some means.)
I had some issues with a card several months ago that was used for very few things, including Linode. Security on one of the other services I used was actually pretty bad, rather than inadvertently bad: they resent me my own password, and I canceled immediately, so it may not have been Linode, but it's impossible to say.
