Submission + - Ryzom releases native Linux client ( 1

biking42 writes: The MMORPG Ryzom, in addition to Open Sourcing the core server code last spring, has released a native Linux client. No more messing with Wine and settling with no sound or 3fps. You can also download the client source and compile it yourself. A dev Wiki and Forums can be found at: for both the client AND core server source code.

In addition, for new game accounts they just went F2P. No store or micropayment items yet — just some restrictions on the free accounts. Read about it at the main site:

Submission + - Firefox on LUbuntu switched to UK dictionary? 1

biking42 writes: Has anyone else noticed a fairly recent update to firefox on Linux / Ubuntu has changed the spelling dictionary over to the UK dictionary?

When typing web-based mail I started noticing it highlighting words like "favorite", "color", "neighbor" as incorrect and suggesting the UK versions "favourite", "colour", "neighbour", In looking under ad-ons languages I see "Firefox (en-GB)". Does that not stand for Great Britain?

Under preferences, Content, Languages I had "English [en]" but I see there's also an "English/United States [en-us]" option.

Additionally I installed the "United States English Dictionary".

I've been running the LTS 8.04 (64-bit) on my laptop for the last 2 years. Though a co-worker running a new install of 10.04 (32-bit) sees the same issue.

Yes I'll head over to the Ubuntu forums but I was curious how widespread this is.

Perhaps trickery by our fellow UK brethren?
