A couple days ago I came across a Raspberri Pi web server guide and thought it looked neat. Especially since I've really been wanting to get back into programming.
Now at the moment I can't do any of this because of a lack of funds. What I do have is 2 Galaxy S3s. Both have broken screens so right now I'm waiting to get an OTG and HDMI cable for them. I wasn't lucky enough to get ADB access. I have a few ideas on how to get control of them but for right now it's the waiting game. In the meantime I have a Moto xt926 running a web server through Android and seems to work fine.
For the linux magic itself, I haven't really decided how I want to go about doing this. I'm worried about not being able to get the servers to talk to the internet. WiFi is likely going to be a problem. I may be fine running it through a vm, I'll have to test that with the Moto later. Ubuntu's Nexus 7 installer may be something worth looking into as well.
So what I'm looking for is anyone who has attempted anything similar. How did it go for you? Even if not any input would be appreciated!submitted by Bellix

When CEO Tim Cook and his fellow Apple executives unveils iOS 8’s great new features on stage during their WWDC 2014 keynote presentation back in June, the most dramatic audience response might have come when the crew unveiled iOS 8’s new Continuity features. With this great new functionality, iOS devices and Mac computers will be more closely connected than ever, able to quickly and easily exchange files and other data. Better still, iOS device notifications appear on a user’s connected Mac, and messages can even be sent and received right from within OS X.
But there’s a catch: despite the fact that Apple released iOS 8 to the public on Wednesday, none of this awesome new functionality is available to iPhone and iPad users yet. If you have an Android smartphone or tablet, however, all of these great features and more are already available thanks to a single fantastic app.
A Kickstarter project called “MOD Duo” is an open source Linux music pedalboard with Arduino hooks and virtual pedals for 100-plus guitar and voice effects.
The MOD Duo is billed as “the first multipurpose pedal.” The Linux-based device will be supported with an app platform, letting you create virtual pedal effects, and other audio apps, as well as download those created by other musicians in the “MOD community.” You can create digital effects plug-ins using the open source LV2 standard, then replay dozens of pedals during recording or performances. Effects include guitar distortions, vocoders for voice, recording apps, and more.
