I've been trying to find a suitable SlimPort adapter between micro USB and HDMI. The only ones I could find, say that they are suitable with the N7 2013. Does this mean that they will also work with my older N7 2012?

I think, at the end, I might get a Raspberry PI for almost the same price. Makes more sense from a programmer's point of view

InstaDoom - a #Doom mode that gives the doomguy a selfie stick, a camera, and retro filters #fun   #funny  
Linguica. Posts: 4324. Registered: 05-00, https://www.dropbox.com/s/enxo9i3oi...tadoom.zip?dl=0. There have been various attempts over the years to "improve" the Doom palette. While these attempts had various goals, and succeeded to various degrees, one question remains: did the authors get paid ...

I have a 2012 Nexus 7, which Lollipop made a bit unusable. The tablet is not my primary device, I have a Nexus 5 with Lollipop, which runs OK. I've been thinking that I can give it a second life as a reading (ebooks, comics) and writing (notes, blog posts, etc) device. As such, I don't need many of the goodies that Lollipop brings to the table. All I want is a bit of performance when typing, and switching bw apps.

I am not into rooting at all, so I am not really aware of what mods, roms, and launchers there are, which can bring life back into my old Nexus. Can you recommend me something?

Which one would you recommend?

Note: I am not much of a gamer TBH, that's why I'm looking for a sub-$100 console, to just have fun with family and friends. My first choice was the Ouya, because it is closer to my heart as an Android developer. Plus, it is what the indie devs are into. On another hand, the Wii Mini has the hardcore fun games and the family factor (taking into account some ripped-offs features compared to the larger version).

As you can see, I am pretty lost.

If Cyanogen comes out with its own app store support in 18 months, will you make versions of your apps for it? Read more here: http://www.androidauthority.com/cyanogen-google-kirt-mcmaster-582373/

Do you have any idea why the Zero Launcher is not available for a 2012 Nexus 7? I wanted to compare it's performance vs Nova, but I can't seem to be able to download it.

Do you a have preferred way of doing reverse routing in #expressjs ? Are you doing it at all? I believe you should.

Why one should use reverse routing? Very simple. With a reverse router, you abstract your components (and your templates) from having to know the exact URLs to your API calls. This is very helpful, when you change your URL schemas. In case you've had hardcoded URLs across your JavaScript code, changing them is a tough game of find-replace. I searched for some Node modules, and here are some interesting ones I found: https://www.npmjs.com/package/reverse and https://github.com/dizlexik/express-reverse
