Days before Labor Day holiday and the forecast is for July temps in September. In central Illinois when the temps get near 90° with the humidity above 80% it can be unbearable.

Consolidated the teams to get in before it got to hot.

Run your Ubuntu/Debian 64 bit system with the latest kernel!

Posted 09-02-2015 at 03:48 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I have compiled yet another Ubuntu/Debian kernel for 64 bit systems. This time kernel 4.2.0-7-exton, equivalent to’s latest stable kernel 4.2 released 150830.

What’s new in kernel 4.2? One million new lines of code in kernel 4.2! (The biggest kernel release ever according to Linus Torvalds).
