A question (if there’s time): How would you go about building an ultra low-power writing appliance?
Requirements:
Capable of running ssh, vim, mercurial, and possibly pandoc

Small form-factor (no larger than a full-sized keyboard without numeric keypad)

Minimum 4×40 characters of text visible on screen

Useable without a flat surface (i.e. your lap)

Runs from battery, but with a life measurable in days or weeks

More on Nagios.  Version of hardware monitoring modules has the wrong syntax for Python 3.  Original source in the AUR is now missing.  When you eliminate the outdated source, you find the source has not been ported to ARM.  There is a possibility of installing Nagios from Debian/Ubuntu repros (thanks Dave Morris).  https://www.howtoforge.com/instdiaalling-nagios-on-debian-lenny-and-monitoring-a-debian-lenny-server Chromecast wired adapter on Raspberry Pi, does not automatically show up as a new interface.  Ideas for multimedia streaming across a network, i.e., “casting” DVDs to TVs on my home network.
