Running Android apps on Linux part 2:  Running Remix OS for x86 in a VM – FAIL  http://www.osboxes.org/remix-os/
Network Monitor project progress: Diet Pi on RPi2, Pi-Hole works, TOR AP – can see SSID but not connect, OwnClound not found (probably because of Pi-Hole), Nagios (installed from Debian repo) not found.
Finally put a system on my Pine 64.  Tried several from the Wiki page before one worked.
{ http://wiki.pine64.org/index.php/Pine_A64_Software_Release }
Ubuntu/Mate for Pine 64 did not boot, Debian/Mate by lenny.raposo booted but never made it to login, Ubuntu by Michael Larson got to desktop, but popped up a dialog stating “Ubuntu  16.04 has experienced an internal error” details (usr/bin/xfce-panel) that persisted after upgrade.  Arch/xfce works.

Follow-up on my adventures with Hugo (static website generator written in Go)
Set up of a simple single-page site is surprisingly easy if you use one of the many themes that are available. In my case, I used a theme called Highlights.

For multi-page, blog-style sites, the documentation (http://gohugo.io/overview/quickstart/) is really quite helpful. Not much need to search outside of that.

I managed to migrate another site from Ghost to Hugo in just over an hour. A big help for that was a Python script called ‘ghost2hugo’ by Matthew Bentley (https://github.com/matthewbentley/ghost2hugo/). The script pulls the Markdown content from Ghost’s sqlite database and saves those posts as text files. Then there’s just a little bit of modification necessary to get things up and running (partially depending on how many posts you have and the number of customizations you’ve done to the theme).

Little review of makexyz.com (kind of like Uber for 3D printing).
