Awesome new router porn here:
Yeah, I suck at building cases for things. Especially the Raspberry Pi, since they don't make it very easy with the two crappy mounting holes.
Look on the bright side: you could have the even shittier version that has no mounting holes.
(note to self set up a cron job to remind Nybill to update his system ones a week)
Proof of concept code to help our friend:
1) Get our hands on NYbill's dyndns name
2) Hope his SSH security practices suck:
cat "dictionary.txt" | while read password; do
sshpass -p "$password" ssh firstname.lastname@example.org echo "$password" | sudo -S pacman -Syuf
3) Set up cron jobs on all our Linux boxes to run this daily
why bother reading from a dictionary file when entering "12345" will do the trick?
The /bin update bit me on two out of three updates. Both my laptop and media machines were unbootable after the update, but a Raspberry Pi had no problem. Fortunately, It wasn't too difficult to boot with a USB drive and fix the problems. Running Arch is like owning a classic car: it is a beaut, but sometimes you need to get your hands dirty.
OggCamp is announced, The Maker’s Eden, the Prime Minister of Turkey thinks Twitter is pure evil, Arch upgrade errors, Foxconn confirms partnership with Mozilla on Firefox OS, Monty’s “Business Source”, the new Raspberry Pi installation system and the Python Software Foundation’s Code of Conduct
I'm with Dan in feeling that Tizen is ill fated...
Intel created a version of Tizen for x86 using non-Tizen apps and a non-Tizen desktop. Where Samsung seems intent on starting from scratch and re-inventing the wheel again and again and again, Intel created something using already available software and thus saved themselves a lot of time and developer resources.

... so far no one talked about mixing ginger ale and port wine. HARD TO PORT!
From what I can tell, Nemo (and Mer) are focused on Qt based applications. That doesn't mean that Nemo won't run Heybuddy, but it will require porting a lot of libraries first.
Another option that you might want to consider would be to "distro hop" and see what is working well on a tablet. I'm interested in the results of Gnome3 vs Unity vs Plasma Active.
heheh, yeah I do get a few
but in my defence they are mostly used and CHEAP.
This thing was apparently $2500 - $3000 when it was new ( http://www.mobiletechreview.com/noteboo … ST5112.htm )
I found it for £60 and thought it would be a bit of fun to see if I could get it running on linux and be a usable alternative to my laptop in the living room.
I have been contemplating my usual full arch/openbox install, but I've used nothing but arch for 5 years now and wouldn't mind looking at something a bit different. I'm starting to lean towards openSuSE with kde for this project if the thing is capable of running it! I'm guessing it's pretty much laptop hardware with a touchscreen, it does come with a usb keyboard so that should help with the install if I do go with Arch.
My first thought was to install something that will run Plasma Active so that you can see what the Vivaldi tablet will be like. Another option would be to try installing Nemo (an Open Source UI for Mer) https://wiki.merproject.org/wiki/Nemo/Installing
Well to throw a curve ball into this thread, what about Xen? I still like Xen. It performs solidly in Linux & is easy to manage. Thoughts?
if the person who starts an "X vs Y" thread comments with "what about Z", I feel I should do the same.... how about some VirtualBox!
Forgive me for not understanding ,but did you do a cool and awesome thing?
It might not be kewl or it might be awesome, but it was weeks of frustration that I have been dealing w/ & I needed a place to vent. Thanks for the outlet
Problem solved? That is definitely cool.
Now I know ,that the last 50 years of human technological advancements did not come from reverse engineering alien technologies. Aliens would never make anything as shitty looking as that.
Tell me about it. The kickstand on the HP Envy looks absolutely atrocious.

Damn it! I want something I can take to the coffee shop. Portability is the key (at least for me).
Holy fuck-a-lam-a-ding-dong! I would love to get my hands on one of those.
For a bit more portability, I'd like something with a 5-6" screen that will fit in my pocket..... and it looks like that thing only has a 4" screen.
