My thoughts
Me on launchpad PPA
Evidently one of my mini-apps was useful enough to make it on to Webupd8
Do you use/like that app? Maybe you want to help fund a cryptogram game

comment Is Amazon a sponsor of Ubuntu development?
AFAIK, Amazon is not a sponsor of Canonical/Ubuntu. I did at one point suggest that setting the referrer link on Amazon purchase queries might be a viable source of revenue in chat. I consider myself not that retarded, and I would think that other at least not that retarded people could also consider it a revenue stream. In that respect, it would seem a decent way to raise money.

comment Chrome crash when trying to see a Youtube video using Adobe Flash
Regular flash has been deprecated on 14.04 and Chrome since before 14.04 came out, so you really had to do a significant amount of finagling to generate this problem. Use pepper-flash.

Yes. It's the default transmission-rpc port that only accepts connections from 127.0.0.1 if enabled without auth and no trusted hosts are specified.
