Great! Glad to report that I installed it on my Google Nexus 7 (wifi 2012) with no problems. Running fine and easily configured. Hopefully, I'll see a further improvement in battery life.
 
Doze Brings Marshmallow's Battery-Saving Feature to Older Androids

Doze is one of the best new features in Android Marshmallow, which stops apps from using the network when your phone is idle. But if your phone still doesn’t have Marshmallow, this app will bring the feature to older phones.

Once installed and activated, Doze creates a VPN, which the developer says is more a barrier to block data flow rather than an actual VPN. Doze kicks in once the screen is switched off, but you can whitelist certain apps to use data. Considering that data connections drain your battery quickly, it’s a good way of saving power.

I am also finding that on CyanogenMod 12.1 it's Privacy Guard function is saving lots of power where I have disabled permissions to wake the phone for many apps.  This is achieving the same effect as Doze but on an individual app basis.
Android 4.1+: Doze is one of the best new features in Android Marshmallow, which stops apps from using the network when your phone is idle. But if your phone still doesn’t have Marhsmallow, this app will bring the feature to older phones.

#OK , boys and girls. I need your help.

I recently bought a spider capo  and it works fine but I have been unable to find out how to set it for the Open D tuning (DADF#AD). There are many example tuning but this is not one of them.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Thanks.
The SpiderCapo acoustic guitar capo allows you to capo each string individually, and works as an alternative tunings capo or partial capo. Works as an electric guitar capo, acoustic guitar capo, nylon string capo.

This is a question for all GNU/Linux geeks out there:

I'm using the dig -f command in a Linux terminal in conjunction with  a bulk #DNS query in text file containing all the web addresses. The problem is that the dig command only accept address in this format:

linuxvoice.com
The http and www are superfluous but if there is an extended file path in that name dig does not return a result. Does anyone know if there is any parameter in the dig command to list and print out in the terminal the numerical IP addresses?

I swore blind I wouldn't post anything about politics but, like a dog coming back to sniff its own vomit, I just couldn't stay away. To continue the similie, I'm barking mad and angry at the downright lies being pedalled by the Prime Minister, David Cameron, about the #EU and the "Norway Option".

He claimed that the Norwegians paid as much as the UK does to the EU coffers and still has to abide by their rules - whilst being excluded from making those rules. Either Cameron is an ignorant, incompetent politician (well, that's virtually all of them) or he is a downright, bloody liar. Let me explain why.

According to their own official sources,  Norway pays the EU £435 million per annum. The UK pays (gross) £19.2 billion per annum. After rebates ,  etc,  this becomes 9.8 biilion net. Well, it looks as if Cameron's pants are on fire.

To compound Cameron's lies and or stupidity he retails the tired canard that Norway pays the EU but has no influence. Lie. Outside the EU Norway is a member of various and crucially important global bodies that actually set the regulations and standards and it is the EU that in fact suffers from fax diplomacy as, increasingly, it simply implements global standards.

Cameron's ignorance and lies is only the start. It won't stop there. No matter what he or any other duplicitous Euro fanatic says, there is nothing - and I mean nothing - that will make me believe anything they says about the EU. I NEVER vote but the EU referendum is not about voting for parties or government but a single issue vote: in or out of the EU. 

I will be voting to leave that vile organization once and for all. It is an irrelevant 19th-century solution looking for a 21st-century problem. Modern globalization and the internet have made it redundant. Staying in would be like voting to be prisoner lashed to an Etruscan corpse.

Of course the issues are very complex, so I have appended a link to Richard North's Flexit Pdf.

Dreadful stuff but I just don't see hot they could know that you had unlocked, modified or rooted your device.  It hasn't and won't stop me. Screw them.
