I use Ubuntu as my primary operating system and absolutely love it. I am also a software developer fluent in C++, PHP, and somewhat-fluent in Python.

Some links:

  • StackApplet - a Gnome applet for keeping track of your activity on this site! Included in Universe for Ubuntu 10.10+.
  • StackExchange Data Dump Browser - a browser for viewing the offline data dumps from this site
  • StackMobile - view the questions, answers, etc. on this site with a smartphone-friendly interface
  • OpenTracks - an open source railway simulation game I started

comment How do I backport/install a newer version of clang?
@Nickolai: I have no idea. To be honest, now that Trusty is out, I'm not really doing anything with 12.04 any more.

I finally made it work with this: "sudo apt-get install libssl1.0.0/trusty libssl-dev/trusty openssl/trusty".

@mtmiller: Nope - impossible. I'm actually the guy that uploaded the OpenSSL packages to the PPA and those were the only packages I uploaded. (I created the PPA and uploaded the packages the day Heartbleed was announced.)

@chaskes: I've set them to manual with apt-mark but apt still insists that they will be removed if I downgrade libssl. I'm not sure if apt-get update will update since the PPA version ended in g and the repository's version ends in f still.

@mtmiller: If I do that, I am warned that "The following packages will be REMOVED: libcurl4-openssl-dev libpq-dev libssl-dev postgresql-server-dev-9.3 postgresql-server-dev-all"

@chaskes: You are absolutely right (good thinking). I did do that. Now how do I undo this mess? As for OpenJDK - I'm betting that it's getting held due to OpenSSL. No wait - I don't think I installed OpenJDK 7... I only installed 6.

Yeah, that's what I just noticed too. But the only two .list files I have in /etc/apt/sources.list.d are for Google Web Designer and Google Music Manager. Shouldn't PPAs show up in that directory?

@mtmiller: I've added the output of the last two. I'm noticing something unusual in the first one.
