NetworkManager blocking analytics/tracking?

Reddit - Fri, 2016-05-27 10:47

I was playing around with piwik earlier (a free analytics software for websites) and it seems like NetworkManager was blocking the tracker. When I switched on my bitmask VPN I was able to get a hit on the tracker. I read somewhere that NetworkManager blocks tracking on wireless networks but now I can't find the article. Can anybody else confirm and provide source of information?

Hey peeps so I am working on a project for a restaurant I am working with. Instead of using a sign they went with a digital menu that is going to use a TV as a display.

What I am looking to make is a script that displays a static image after boot. So pretty much Boot > Then Image. I need to make it automated so that when the Raspberry Pi/TV are turned on in the morning the Pi will boot and go straight to that image.

Anywhere I should start or anyone know how to do this?
