Automatically update flashplayer-plugin

Posted 07-11-2015 at 04:03 PM by jere21
Updated 07-20-2015 at 08:13 PM by jere21

Code:
ii  flashplugin-nonfree  1:3.6.1  amd64  Adobe Flash Player - browser plugin

For now the Jessie issues also apply:

New stuff:
  1. Window resizing
    Gnome 3.16 came with an issue where the mouse pointer doesn't change to "resize" look on all borders of every app. (Only some apps and some parts of the borders are affected).
    The resizing seems to work anyway, just click with your normally looking pointer on any border and resize the window.
    See https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=746598

E-cigarettes not endorsed by American Lung Association

Posted 07-08-2015 at 09:01 PM by BenCollver

I received a problem report on my personal web page [1]. It resembled spam, but I replied anyway. The response appealed to my sense of charity, and suggested that they are supported by the American Lung Association [2]. I asked the American Lung Association and they responded [3] that they do NOT support this charity nor do they endorse e-cigarettes [3].
