    a game that started out on the iPhone and has come to represent the sort of simple yet addictive game that has been so successful on mobile devices Using a catapult you launch a series of birds with different talents at constructions filled with green pigs who have stolen the birds eggs Anyway I was very impressed because it appeared that they had reimplemented Angry Birds entirely using the open HTML5 standard From what I could see on a cursory glance it was Javascript all the way and all was good Except not Turns out that there is still a bit of flash hanging around If you disable flash in your chrome you ll be presented and refresh your Angry Birds page you ll be asked to install it This is because buried down below the javascript and goodness there is this little code segment obect id gwtVoices100 type application x shockwave flash data http chrome angrybirds com angrybirds gwt voices swf param name FlashVars value id gwtVoices1000 object I don t know what it s meant to do but the app won t work without it It is slightly disappointing however I should point out that all the game

    inspired enough to design this Moving onto Linux Australia stuff I ve been nominated both for the role of President and Vice President which in itself is a nice vote of confidence however over the last week and a bit I ve been doing a lot of thinking mainly about my priorities and where I need to be investing my energy and time Sad to say I don t think I will be accepting my nominations Much as I would love to take on the role after sitting down and talking with Karin and others I ve decided that I need to sort out a few more things before I can dedicate the kind of time and effort that the role of President or Vice President requires My time on the Committee has been both rewarding and educational I have enjoyed working with all Committee members over the past two years and I look forward to watching as the next committee takes Linux Australia forward to meet the challanges that the changing face of both our community and the wider general community pose In terms of what my priorities are this year they really boil down to growing the business
