This video will give you an insight what work is done in regards to the ULM scripts.

The concept is one of story telling.

I do my work and tell you why I do things that way.

There is a new Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon out and I want to see if I need to make new Sardi and Surfn icons for this release.

It is also a good chance to see if the Arc and Mint-Y themes are still working and to check if the Ultimate Linux Mint or ULM is still working fine.

We will create a new github and we will work with the github scripts.
