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.

Hi all,

We are finally there! An official beta of Vivaldi was released on the public today. We have worked real hard on getting to where we are now. We would like to thank all of you, our community, for the fantastic effort you have made to get us to this release. Couldn't have done it without you!

From our press release:

"Vivaldi today unveiled the long-awaited beta version of its free web browser packed with features and capabilities designed for the web’s most demanding users. 

After more than 2 million downloads of Vivaldi’s technical previews, the beta release marks the firm transition of Vivaldi from a tool for early explorers to a browser anyone can use to navigate the web with speed and power. The beta also introduces more features that transform your everyday interactions on the web – boosting productivity, efficiency and fun."

Installed a version of bash called Fish which puts it on steroids and then for good measure installed a Fish plugin called, well you guessed it, Fisherman.

It does some very clever stuff; too much to cover here so I'll just give you the we links for both. Give it a try, you'll love it (and you can always exit back to Bash anytime you want).

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?
