And now Ubuntu Touch has become completely pointless.

This is what it should of been from the beginning. I was excited for "Ubuntu for Android" before they decided to kill off the project.

Damn Melbourne, Australia. Your internet is really slow.

Just running tests on the site and Australia load times are slow as shit compared to other places. I heard Australia internet was slow but this is beyond a joke. I don't get it, why does Australia internet suck this bad??

Some 3rd world countries have better internet speeds.

Australian internet is not only slow, it's also very expensive.

Update about Pinguy OS.
 
An update. I am on the mend, but had a collapsed lung.

Still working on the OS so it isn't dead. Just haven't got as much free time as I used to have.

Also to be honest, I am finding 16.04 a bit on the buggy side. I am still using 14.04 as my daily driver.

I will go for a big push in the next 2 days and get a build out within two weeks.

All that is needed to make the build is online if anyone wants to have a mess around: http://forum.pinguyos.com/Thread-PinguyOS-METAPACKAGE?pid=34132#pid34132

If you are running 14.04, run this to update the kernel so you are running the latest security patches:

sudo apt-get install linux-generic-lts-xenial linux-image-generic-lts-xenial

Thanks for reaching out.

This is my setup at the moment:

http://forum.pinguyos.com/Thread-How-to-Speed-Up-a-Website

What can you do to make the site run better then it is now?

At the moment the site loads under 1000ms and the forum has a mobile layout.

The ads do slow it up.

Main Site  0.9s: https://gtmetrix.com/reports/pinguyos.com/M2BqFLYK

The tests are in Canada. In the US it is a lot faster. I do have a CDN, so some places are faster then others.

Dallas, Texas, USA it is 478 ms

If you can beat that I would like to know how.

Got it working in the end. Had to remove:

hdmi_force_hotplug=1

From the boot config.txt. Even then I had to plug it in, wait for the screen to go dead then unplug-re-plug the HDMI.

It is fucking awesome that geektillithertz has even got Android booting on the Pi. But unfortunately nothing works on it and it is buggy as fuck.

I tried to fix it, but had no luck. It is to much of a buggy mess to fix (I wouldn't even know where to start to fix it). I am not having ago at the geektillithertz guy. What he was able to do was amazing. Unfortunately the Pi just hasn't got the hardware needed to make running Android on it useful.

Running this on the Pi is fine, but that is about it: http://www.matthuisman.nz/2015/11/recalbox-kodi-dual-boot-images.html

If you want to run Netflix etc. on it, you are shit out of luck.

The hardware for the Raspberry Pi is well documented and it is easy to develop on. The problem is it isn't very powerful. If it had HEVC & VP9 hardware encoding, 5G Wifi and 2G's of RAM it would be a killer single-board computer (SBC). As it stands at the moment. The Pi isn't a very useful HTPC system.

It lacks to many hardware codecs and can't do 4k video. If it could do 10 bit HEVC, I might be able to live with its limitations.
Unfortunately doesn't work for me. Tried burning/writing the SD using a few methods, but all of them fail to boot. I got my Pi from 'The Pi Hut' and I am… - Antoni Norman - Google+

PageSpeed Score A (96%)
YSlow Score B (87%)
Page Load Time 0.9s

Pretty amazed by that. The forum does run ads that do slow down the load times by a fair amount. The fact that the forum is loading under 1000ms with ads enabled is frankly amazing (I can't think of many other forums that perform that well)

All I did was install a newer kernel (4.4.0-34) and the latest version of W3 Total Cache plug-in. That was it.

If you own one of them cheap Android TV devices and want the apps to run in the Leanback mode (the Androd TV mode) copy the tv_core_hardware.xml file to /etc/permissions and set the correct permissions.

Almost all of these Android Boxes ship pre-rooted so you should be able to copy the file using Root Browser ( https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.jrummy.root.browserfree ) without any issues.

Just remember to reboot the box after coping the file.

I hate FOX and not a fan of Geraldo, but he does seem to have a point.
