This is the second time I am using Ubuntu automatic upgrade; yesterday, I went from Ubuntu 12.04 to 14.04. But for some glitches with tex-common and octave (which I believe I have fixed now). Very nice indeed!
Read Dian Fosey’s Gorillas in the mist. A very sad but truly elevating reading experience. Strongly recommended.
Also read Reif Larsen’s The young and prodigious T. S. Spivet. A nice novel. Enjoyed reading it a lot. Another strong recommendation!
