Ten years of blogging?! That's come as a bit of a surprise to me, admittedly I've been hardly prolific for the last 2-3 years, but I am still going to keep this going. Much of the shorter content that I used to blog now goes to Twitter, Identi.ca or Delicious, and arguably gets exposed to a far smaller audience. With that thought in mind I'm aiming to bring more content back here, let's see how that works out.
I suggest you put your feet up, and watch how this evolves.

Re-enabling Ubuntu Hibernation
For some (sightly odd, imho) reason, Ubuntu decided to disable hibernation by default in the latest release - 12.04
Fortunately re-enabling hibernation (on machines that support it) is reasonably simple, with step by step instructions on help.ubuntu.com and askubuntu.com.
This is one of those occasions where I believe Ubuntu made the wrong decision, it might save them bug reports from unsupported hardware, but disabling a useful - working - feature on many machines is never a great idea.

Out of the archives of Fun-1, Ewan finds an old post of mine about the tragic events at Imola in 1994, which I had also revisited in 2009.
18 years on, I'm still stunned when I think of the event, although Asif Kapadia's Senna documentary has softened my viewpoint on Ayrton. Perhaps the events of the day should be required viewing for anyone desiring a motorsport license; a little reflection is never a bad thing.
Roland, Ayrton, rest in peace.
