Hibernation complete fix after upgrading to Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Lots of issues with Gnome after upgrading Ubuntu GNU/Linux from 12.04 LTS to 14.04 LTS. The fix for most issues is to first login with the Ubuntu (Unity) session before choosing another session.

Anyway, hibernation ceases to be available after the upgrade.



Shooting star in North Essex

In the early hours of this morning at 00:30 GMT I witnessed an unusal shooting star.  It was seen just North of Chelmsford, Essex with a South-to-North direction.  It lasted a couple of seconds and was yellowish in colour.  Its width was quite large and it was visible through the clouds.  What was it?  A satellite in polar orbit breaking up, perhaps?
