Further I want to share some tips and tricks I found out to be helpful in getting the most performance out of Ubuntu linux...

Solar cells from donuts and tea - energy crisis solved?

Yes I know - this has not got anything to do with mobile computing (sorry), and No, its not an april hoax at all - but I simply had to write about it..

as you can see on the youTube video below, this guy actually makes a small (and inefficient but still amazing) solar panel at home - from donuts, "starbucks passion" red hibiscus flower tea, water, vodka and some microscopy object slides...

Educational - and VERY funny to watch and listen!
