Turned my Chromebook Cr-48 into an embedded +Kodi player with +OpenELEC ; just waiting for my VGA/SVideo adapter from Staples.
So far it has played every type of video I have on my Plex server. The Plexbmc addon works great plus using Kodi I have the option of installing a whole slew of addons such as emulators and games. 
The Cr-48 has bluetooth so I should be able to use my BT headphones for listening to stuff at night, the Kodi remote will be used to control everything.

Anyone here subscribing to the print addition of Linux Voice and if so does it arrive on time and in decent shape? I have picked up a couple of issues at Barnes and Nobel but that is a long haul for a magazine. Thanks!

that's darn spiffy
 
I did not know you could do tab completion over ssh.

I was doing something like:

scp myremoteserver:mylongfilename .

and out of habit I hit the tab key after typing the first few characters of the filename. Imagine my surprise when it worked.

You may have to wait a second or two if the remote server is busy or the network is congested, but if you have your keys set up it should "just work".

Assumes Linux, 'natch

Guilty as charged but I must start reading programming books.
Don't be discouraged by the fact that the first book says M$ on the cover.
This does look like a good list.
This list was last updated in March 2015. Why are updates to my reading list so rare? Because computers change a lot in 10 years, but people don't. To make better software, you need to understand how people work, and that is what the books I recommend tend to focus on.
