for a new team to win! As a daily reward for burning rubber on the track,
contributing racers from teams that come in first, second or third place have a

final, all contributing racers have a chance to win!
In addition to helping your team race to the top of the podium, you can swing by
the Grand Prix Pit Stop to
exchange tokens you earn for rewards such as emoticons, backgrounds and more at
the Grand Prix Pit Stop.

says Canonical is backtracking on their plans to scrap
32-bit support in Ubuntu. It seems this would mean Valve will be able to
continue to support this Linux distro in Steam

Thanks to the
huge amount of feedback this weekend from gamers, Ubuntu Studio, and the WINE

needed to support legacy software, and can add to that list post-release if we

We are off today to close on the sale of the BlueTower. This brings mixed
feelings as we'll miss this place and our friends, though we are not moving so

drawn-out and difficult process. Thank you once again for your patience with how
this is affecting updates here this week. We will be quite happy when things
return to normal.
