BarTender
I had a conversation with someone a while ago about Unifi Protect and the fact it only works on a Cloudkey. Since a Cloudkey is just an 64bit ARM I thought I would try installing it on an ODroid C2. This is completely unsupported and who knows if it will stop working in the future... so YMMV. Insta...

xpd
Since I now have a new toy that uses LiPo batteries, and came with a charger, I thought I'd better figure out how to use it.
