I feel like GIMP is a bit of an overkill when I just need to crop and adjust the brightness/contrast a bit. Any recommendations for a desktop app for this purpose? Needs to be light weight and good looking in Ubuntu/Gnome. Thanks!

"I hope that, bit by bit, we can shift away from taking it as an indictment of our goodness and move towards taking it as a gesture of respect and an act of kindness when someone tells us that we've got something racist stuck in our teeth."

Thanks to Jay Smooth for this great quote and talk on .

Very good point: We have to stop thinking of beeing a good or bad person as something one _is_ and start thinking about it as a process, a thing one _does_.

Noone thinks that a clean person is clean, and therefor never have to brush their teeth. We are not either clean or unclean, good or bad. We do good or bad things, and we all need to check the mirror to see if we have something stuck in out teeth.

Very good talk on :

"When you believe that you must be perfect in order to be good, it makes you adverse to recognizing your own inevitable imperfections, and that lets them stagnate and grow."

Thunderbird is now using Pretty Easy Privacy (PEP) for encrypted emails. I find the user experience quite seamless. It takes no additional effort to send an encrypted email than a non-encrypted one. I don't even have to check whether I'm encrypting or not. It automatically encrypts emails sent to recipients for which it has keys available.

So much more goodies in 15 too, like video chat inside collaborative document editing, better full text search (searching everything, not just files), etc.), faster, more secure.

I really need to try this soon!

I wish had a pause button on each timeline. Scrolling down a bit "pauses" it, I guess, but it keeeps blinking and changing the scroll bar position slightly

The latest version of Deepin looks really nice! Does anyone have any experience with it? Is it more lightweight than Gnome? And are there any Ubuntu based OS that uses Deepin Desktop Environment 15.8?

@anildash Just a heads up that we're open source now: writefreely.org

Installation isn't as quick and painless as we want yet, but that's the main goal for v1.0. Aiming to have that released by the end of the year.
