Anyone using the Nuvo P3100 or other whole-house audio system components in a Linux-only household?

The hardware and feature set seem like what we want.  but the docs are all very Android/iOS/Windows/MacOS specific, there are no useful technical docs on the protocols used, the control plane and music library access apps all appear proprietary, and I suspect the box itself is yet another GPL-violating consumer device (diagnostic docs on the web site make it pretty clear the box runs Linux inside)...

So, anyone know more about the system than I've been able to discover online?:

You could of course just get yourself an amplifier and some ARM boards and build such a thing yourself.

In various talks about the FreedomBox project, I've mentioned my excitement about the Novena platform... a fully open design laptop project.  I have one of the current prototype circuit boards, and it's a very cool piece of hardware...  If you want one too, you need to act quickly, as the campaign over on Crowd Supply ends soon!

One of the things I do is represent individual members on the board of the Linux Foundation.  If you're not a member of the LF, and want to be, note that between now and 10 December there's a special deal where when you sign up and pay the annual dues, a portion goes to the World Wildlife Fund to support emperor penguins...

That was cool. I've never seen an OTP token emit all 8s before... I almost didn't type it in!

Once in 100,000 when you don't specify which exact digit.  If each lasts for 30 seconds it will happen roughly once a month.

I've had a great time over the last few weeks helping son Robert build a custom guitar... it sounds great! He just posted a selection of photos from the build process on flickr, many of which I took.

After the fire, some of his friends chipped in and bought him a nice Fender amp with built-in DSP effects that's really cool... But there are a few things that deserve discrete pedals we're likely to tackle soon...

Finally got around to replacing "big blue" in the cocktail-table Asteroids machine in our basement. Wow. What a difference one capacitor can make. I only wish I'd done it sooner... Game on!
