If I got an OTG cable would I be able to connect my phone to automate on another device (android headunit or tablet) in the same way stock android auto works or is it only run locally so to speak?

Sorry, AutoMate is meant to run stand alone on the device it's installed on. Currently no OTG cable support.

However, there are apps in the Play store that let you use OTG cable to play media from your phone on your tablet. AutoMate supports a media app called Nexus Media Importer that lets you do this.

You can also use Tablet Talk to launch calls from your tablet to phone. Set up instructions for that in the FAQ.

I recent installed yappy after the push bullet incident. Really liking it so but I have 1 issue where my phone can't see my other phone. Process of events went like this

Set up my personal phone (nexus 5x)
Set up my work phone (HTC One)
HTC one can see both itself and nexus.
nexus can only see itself

Setup tablet (Note 8)
Tablet, web interface and HTC can see both devices

nexus can still only see itself...

Any idea how to resolve this?

I pity you poor folks in the UK who will be saddled with another cycle of PM David Cameron. When he's through with your Internet, you might as well just address all your messages to MI5 directly.

setup +Graylog this morning, Not impressed by their installation documentation, it failed to make a lot of things clear

But compared to ELK the ease of getting it up and running is amazing!

Really like it so far. Got syslog set up already and starting to play about with dashboards.

I went to see victor frankenstein last night, really enjoyed it. Maybe not the best film ever but I thought McAvoy and Radcliffe were both excellent. it's a shame if it's considered a disappointment.
Daniel Radcliffe can’t bring life to the horror reboot as it takes a mere £375,000 at cinemas, while festive offering Christmas With the Coopers comes in at fifth place

No complaints. Large TV. Food in the restaurant was fine. Only issue was it was very warm and there was no AC to cool the room down.
