Xenial Wine-development Debian backports

If like me, you like having the latest version of Wine, I’m providing a very simple backport of the Debian Wine packages in this PPA:
https://launchpad.net/~bryanquigley/+archive/ubuntu/wine

This won’t likely ever have the stable wine versions in it; it’s just the wine-development (1.9.xx series) package.   I’m hoping to be able to get some of the versions tested in this PPA made available as updates to Xenial.

Presidential Candidate Website Survey Update

The race is now down to 5. (From 21!)

What’s changed in their website setups?

Donald Trump got rid of Flash, otherwise everything else appears to be the same.

Ted Cruz went from a A+ rating to just an A (lost HSTS?).

Nothing changed for John Kasich.

Hillary Clinton went from an inconsistent server setup with many IPv4 addresses to just 1 IPV4 address.   The www. redirect behavior (from without to it) does mess up HTTPS Everywhere and ssllabs tests.     A major plus is she added HSTS to her site, so her ssllabs rating is now A+.

Bernie Sanders added IPv6 support and HSTS to the main site.  Unfortunately a sha2 intermediate certificate prevents his site from going from A to A+.  And his donation provider has HSTS setup correctly and get’s an A+.

At this point in the campaign, only A ratings (ssllabs) are left!  The Democrats seem to have prioritized implementing HSTS, but neither appears to have gone for the preload list.

HSTS – Means you tell the browser to enforce SSL

You can find the raw data in this spreadsheet

I also included sub domains in this list, but it wasn’t as interesting as I hoped.

Do you have any old file format images?

I’m specifically looking for:
OS/2 Metafile (.met)
PICT (Mac’s precursor to PDF) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PICT

Also useful might be:
PCD – Kodak Photo CD
RAS – Sun Raster Image

I’m trying to evaluate if LibreOffice should keep support for them (specifically if the support is good). Unfortunately I can only generate the images using LibreOffice (or sister projects) which doesn’t really provide a great test.

Please either:
* Provide a link in a comment below
* Email me B @ (If emailed, please mention if I can share the image publicly)

If I find the support works great I’d try to integrate a few of them into LO tests so we make sure they don’t regress.

Thank you!

Planet Ubuntu endorses Bernie Sanders; Larry Lessig for Supreme Court?

The results of the Planet Ubuntu poll we’re
Democratic: 72% for Bernie Sanders
Republican: 27% for Rand Paul (has since dropped out*)
Independents: 46% for Jon Stewart

Who do you like the (republican) least?: 65% Donald Trump
* And otherwise it was a wash.

In other political news a few people have pitched Larry Lessig to be the next justice on the supreme court. We need someone tech savvy on the supreme court. Not to mention someone who wants to get money out of politics.
