Subject: Welcome to my AI-hosted dinner party

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

I just moved to Washington, D.C., and there’s been a lot on my plate. I’ve been trying to figure out if there are ways AI can help me navigate it all. One of the first tasks my family tormented me about was, “When can we come over for dinner?” The thought of planning and executing an entire dinner party right now? Terrifying. I could order takeout for all of us, but I enjoy cooking and hosting for people. But again, there’s been too much going on. This is when I became enamored with the idea of putting AI to the test and giving it a shot: I’ll let it plan the dinner for me.

Subject: App Doesn’t Run in Ubuntu 24.04? This AppArmor Update May Fix It

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

If you’ve been experiencing issues getting some apps to run or work properly in Ubuntu 24.04 LTS it may be down to the distro using AppArmor to restrict the creation of user namespaces. This change (which I touched on in my article look at what’s new in Ubuntu 24.04 LTS) is there to bolster security. After all, no-one wants icky apps free to do icky things, unchecked.
