Wood burning / Re: splitting rocket-sized wood

Yes, but it is incredibly slow compared to this thing.  Working on my own version of the popular "wheel of death" as found on web.  Trying to balance speed (rpm) with mass (added ballast) to make an effective splitter for 2x4 size wood and smaller. Not concerned with big stuff that I'll use the hydraulic splitter for.

Safety is questionable as well

Nothing with that design.  He put up a site sharing all his work.  He does not believe "brain drain" is a good thing

Problem: Synaptic fails with "W: Can't drop privileges for downloading as file '/root/.synaptic/tmp//tmp_sh' couldn't be accessed by user '_apt'. - pkgAcquire::Run (13: Permission denied)"

Solution that works and is safe at https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/aptitude/+bug/1543280

Thanks for this nice workaround, John, but I would strongly suggest not to execute that first line. If you have already, set the permissions back to 755. Instead, the better way to fix this permission problem is the following line:

sudo chown _apt /var/lib/update-notifier/package-data-downloads/partial/

May I at this point also say that the continued existence of this trivial bug is a disgrace and a reason for me to question if there are structural problems within the core Ubuntu development community that may easily lead to more serious problems.

I totally agree with Christian's sentiments here. Very disappointed that this bug has affected so many for so long and still has not been addressed.
