Introducing “gnirehtet”, a reverse tethering tool for Android. That's actually really cool, use your computer and a USB cable to get Internet access for your phone (good in places where maybe you only have a wired connection or limited to the number of devices you can attach to wifi...)     #>

Coyote Hazing: Guidelines for Discouraging Neighborhood Coyotes. It's a shame that this is required but it's better than pushing them out of the neighborhoods entirely...     #>

Canon Powershot G12 Digital Camera at KEH (so used). After so many years of excellent service mine finally died (some part of the lens control broke, the lens wouldn't extend or retract, it was stuck in this grey area.) I'm still debating replacing it with the same thing, but in all honesty I should just upgrade to current technology (though there's a lot to be said for this G12...)     #>

Converting h.265 (HEVC) to h.264 (AVC) with ffmpeg. My FireTV was playing HEVC fine, then it had some problems, now with an upgrade to Kodi 17 it's back to working fine again. This is bookmarked just in case it acts up again.     #>

R-Pi Troubleshooting and The Boot Problems Sticky. I had a problem with my RPi3 twice now, re-flashing the card fixed it. I've swapped the card out, and I'm going to just back it up into a disk image to save me the grief of rebuilding from scratch next time.     #>

How to Upgrade Debian 7 Wheezy to Debian 8 Jessie. Worked perfectly on a VPS I have. I did get bit by a couple of things so be sure to check Issues to be aware of for jessie. I specifically got hit with: Apache Upgrading to 2.4 from 2.2. This went smooth enough I'm going to migrate my CentOS servers over to Debian (there's no way to go from CentOS 6 to 7, you have to start from scratch and rebuild... Screw that noise.)     #>

Sonoff - WiFi Wireless Smart Switch. Five bucks and it's got a little ESP8266 embedded in it... So tempted, though I don't know for what yet.     #>
