Dexter Manager WIP 29 Dec 2014

This is a desktop app I am writing to make it easy to manage Dexter.  A high priority for me is making the app be able to update itself so that I can keep everyone up to date with my latest improvements.  So I am working on this part first.  There is a lot of behind the scenes stuff that you can't really see in the video.  That is why I added a section showing how much source code I've written so far :)

Dexter bootstrap video

TLDR: Dexter booting up for the first time in a new environment

This is a video of Dexter bootstrapping itself from a new SD card image.  It reboots twice (after creating a partition dedicated to holding .ldimg files), then copies an .ldimg file from a USB drive to its SD card in order to achieve good performance.

What does this mean for you?

It means that Dexter is closer to being able to fully auto-configure itself so that a human being needs to do less in order to use Dexter.  This is a high priority for me (to make Dexter as easy as possible to use).
