Never take anything I say personally unless preceded by "Dear Joshua,". 
  As I've told my boss in the past, I don't do subtle.

Meh.  Ignore 'em.  It's what I do.  And we all need to vent at times as 
well.  I do accept that in the dead language of text that nuances can 
get lost.

And I intend to about these sound oddities.  I do normally log what I 
find (or sub to an existing bug).

Good news!  Centre and LFE are back (did I mention that already?)  Only 
problem now is that both front channels are playing out of front-left. 
Dunno why.  There's lots and lots of good info on this, but it all seems 
to stop around Hardy/Jaunty with "It just works now".  And have the alsa 
files have gone AWOL.  A curse upon progress I tells you!

Screw the branch, where's the beer? :-)

Now, for some really good news.  rsync'd the Thunderbird folder off the 
server back onto the upgraded desktop, started Thunderbird and....bingo. 
  All works.  Awesome.  And even if it hadn't, I still had my mail in a 
fully documented standard that I could have dealt with.

Just a shame Sauerbraten won't connect to the main server.  I use that 
for, err, checking the graphics driver.  Yes, serious testing tool that 
is.  Ahem.

Only other thing to note is that's there's some odd freezes in Unity at 
times.  Not sure what that's all about (yet).
