  1. Alain! Hello, Hello, Hello! Maybe: http://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2014/05/install-users-groups-management-tool-ubuntu1404/
  2. Windmills throughout the country were in "rouwstand", mourning position; when the upper sail has been fixed after having passed through the highest position, it is in the 'going' position; this is the position of mourning, indicating that the culminating point has been passed and life is going downhill. This is the position when a member of the miller's family has died or there is some other reason for mourning. When a funeral procession in the village passes the mill, even when the person who is to be buried was not directly associated with the miller or his family the mill will still be set in the mourning position. It is decidedly a touching sight when cap and sails are turned to follow the direction taken by the procession and finally stop in the position facing the churchyard.

  6. "Pot coffee" is alive and well and living is summer cottages & market square cafe tents throughout Finland. Eggshells (and other stuff, such as yolk or fish scales) were used when coffee was too finely ground and wouldn't settle to the bottom of the pot. Should you ever buy ground coffee here, you'll need to make a choice:
  7. British smitish, darn, this is difficult... would Porridge count? OK let's see... other summer rerun Brit stuff: New Tricks, seasons 9 & 10. Old Morses, good stuff, but I've seen 'em umpty times... Foyle's War 6-8... the usual stuff. Vera (Stanhope) is not too bad.
