I wanted to make a little script that could make a beep or some fun sound when a long-running terminal process was complete… Because who sits there and watches the terminal all day when we have websites to browse and applications to write?

Security cameras are great for keeping physical evidence on strange events in and around your house. They have picked up thieves stealing Christmas packages, house break-ins, and various other thefts. In this article I’ll teach you how to capture videos from your security cameras using Linux Motion.

Update 2 – 2016-06-13 (see previous update below)
Some have pointed out that this post is well trafficked for installing Ubuntu 16.04 on the Yoga 900. I appreciate this and I hope that this information comes in handy. Please be aware that this post was created for my own reference as well as to help others who might stumble upon it. It’s here so that you can comment below and review the help provided by other generous commenters who are having similar issues. Perhaps they’ll have solved your problem.
I felt it necessary to update this because some people are bringing up new issues that weren’t around when I created this article. Apparently there is a new version of the Yoga 900 which uses an NVMe SSD which may not work well with 16.04.
From user D.S.:
The SSD-problem seems to affect only recent revisions of the device (Yoga 900 13ISK2, 13ISK Business Edition and 12ISK) where the SSD is connected through NVMe.
If you are a lucky owner of the first version of the device (13ISK), you should not have any problems installing Ubuntu 16.04.
If the problem is related to the NVMe drive then there might be some solutions online:
Unable to install GRUB in /dev/nvme
Setting up an NVMe SSD on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (related to 14.04, but information might transfer to 16.04)
Ubuntu 15.10 does not boot on Intel NUC6i3 with Samsung 950 Pro PCIe NVME SSD

The Lenovo Yoga 900 is an ultrabook that is based on the popular Yoga 3, which evolved from the design of the Yoga 2 model. Essentially, the offering between each model are very similar, specifically a touchscreen, convertible format from laptop to tablet, Bluetooth, and a smooth touch pad, to name a few.
