We've been dealing with webapps on iOS for a couple of years: websites that after Home Screen installation become a full-featured full screen app from a user's perspective. Finally, Chrome 31 brings that approach to Android devices: HTML5 apps without the need of packaging and a using the store ...

While staring at an ASCII table for this week's crypto homework, realized that XORing a letter with space flips between upper and lower case.

I've just discovered Bubble's URL share intent provider, which allows sending media from the web/other apps to Bubble, bridging the gap between web media and media renderers, ala Chromecast (but way better!). It even works for Youtube playlists, from the Youtube app.

The only gap vs Chromecast is support for "sharing" the current URL from a desktop browser to Bubble. I can see several ways this could work:

- Native browser extension that sends to Bubble on phone
- Run Bubble on desktop Chrome/ChromeOS using https://archon-runtime.github.io/. Not sure how to plumb a browser button to share intent, but should be possible.

The first option could be a generic "Share URL to Android Phone" extension, and probably something similar already exists.

Has anyone tried running Bubble on desktop Chrome via ARC/Archon?

Also, BubbleUPnP is a fantastic piece of software. Thank you!

+Eric Drechsel Not sure exactly what you meant but BubbleUPnP Server can be used to access media servers in Android BubbleUPNP when regular discovery is not available. That's the only way to access media servers currently when running BubbleUPnP in ARC. But there's not counterpart for renderers so you can only play locally.

Auto-sync for local repository

I use Orgzly with a local directory repository synchronized with other devices (laptop Emacs) via an external process (Syncthing https://syncthing.net/).

Manually triggering Orgzly's sync with the local repository is not ideal in this case. I'd prefer if Orgzly treated the local repository differently than remotes, and more like a text editor would: write changes immediately, with conflict detection ("File has changed on disk, do you want to save or load?") and polling for external writes to the current open file. Syncthing (or other sync tool) provides its own conflict resolution procedure (save both copies with a datestamp suffix), so Orgzly's procedure is redundant in this case.

For me, using a local repository, this feels like the most urgent feature need for Orgzly, and I wanted to make sure to provide feedback.

Best,
Eric

The best info I found on parking strip gardens in the Portland city code was this Oregon Live article
I give a supply of answers for a number of questions about hell strips.

Stayed up through the night configuring Alexandria. Pretty much done now. +Camlistore inside +Docker , +XBMC, ZFS on root. Had to configure lots of little things like Avahi because Arch, but somehow the 6 hour config process was a satisfying anachronism. Anyway it'd be much quicker next time. Thinking of creating a +Ansible script to automate this build/share the recipe.
