Things I broke: I wanted to install Google Play store on my 7” Amazon Fire tablet so I could install the app for my refurbished DJI 3 Standard drone.  Tried the RootJunky method descibed here http://lifehacker.com/how-to-get-google-play-on-a-kindle-fire-and-install-any-1790706649 but got fail.  Was able to sideload the app, but it needs support apps that come with the Play Store.   
Installed LXDE on my Pocket C.H.I.P., rendered it unusable.  I heard Thaj talking about putting LXDE on his Pocket C.H.I.P. on Urandom and decided to put it on mine as well.  Installed the desktop from terminal. Got a login screen, but my touch screen doesn’t respond to touches near the edges, so I couldn’t get to the dropdown to change desktops.  Discovered I could change the default desktop from the terminal with “sudo killall x-session-manager” which brings up a menu of alternate desktops. Rebooted into LXDE to find I had no apps, including a terminal or a package manager.
Followed these instructions to create an ArchLinuxARM SD for my ODroid X2.  Got warnings every time I unzipped the archive, but I proceeded.  X2 still doesn’t boot.

Fedora is creating a single image for all ARM devices.

Hey hey guys

I got a few quick things

In your attached show notes I see no contact links nor any community links, that makes feedback a touch more like work

Octoprint does have a baked in slicer but I know nobody that uses it, http://docs.octoprint.org/en/master/api/slicing.html I only have used Cura, it works fine in Linux, just a touch slow to load

Good work, good show, keep it up
