Root Sony Z3 compact with Lolipop (Android 5.1)

This keeps all your data and most settings intact, so you can use your phone as you do it (though it will spend a lot of time 'optimizing apps') or stop and go out :-)
You don't need to unlock the boot loader, so the camera quality stays awesome, and you get all the bundled apps, along with the Google ones.

Use the built in update app to go from 4.4 to 5.

Then use the settings, about, update menu to update to 5.1 latest.

Install Kingroot (I used 4.8) and let it root your phone.

Just add these to ~/.config/openbox/lxde-pi-rc.xml after all the other <keybind> before the </keyboard>

Heart of noise : first two tracks mini review

After a brief fight with the website, I got my advance copied of the first two tracks as part of the physical 'fan box'

Any complaints from the first part of the album that it wasn't Jarre enough with all the collaborations can be instantly dismissed.
This is him on top knob twiddling form, albeit sounding very digital.

Part one is a slow epic wide Bladerunner style piece. Goes well with the bleak snowy weather I have at the moment.

Part two speeds it up a little and underlies the melody with heavier bass beats. I think we have the making of a classic here.

TP-Link TL-WPA4230P on Linux

Quick note on these PowerLine devices.

They don't need any tools to manage them, as they have a sufficient web interface.

BUT - these devices are terrible network citizens.
