This is the funniest thing I have seen shared on facebook (that I didn't see here first) in a long time!

How a key works.  That's the best use of an animated GIF that I have ever seen. Now I'm off to my lock-picking class.

Woot! Got NaCl toolchain running (natively) on ARM Chromebook. (i.e. self-contained development environment) -- This should make NaCl development considerably more convenient! :)

My steps for installing ArchLinux userspace on Android 4.2.1 running on Kindle Fire (Gen 1). A ridiculously specific case that I'm not sure many other people care about. :) ...but it nets me git and gcc directly on the Kindle Fire, and that's what I really wanted. Not surprisingly a lot of similarity with the ARM Chromebook.

Using Dropbox-Updater bash script to access dropbox on ARM Chromebook (crosh). With added "sync" option for recursive downloads. Dropbox has really become a must-have for my own stuff. (If you're one of the very few people without a dropbox account, use my referral code so I can get extra space :) http://db.tt/6dQfcEO)

How to use a pre-built ArchLinux (ARM) environment on the Samsung Chromebook. This is a much cleaner setup than my previous method. And the real value is that package management (pacman) works well. So just a 'pacman -S git' away from git working on the Chromebook. (Notably without dropbox, getting stuff on and off the Chromebook is/was the most annoying part of use.)
