excellent tutorial and gets me 90% of the way to what I need, just one thing.
Is there a way to wait until the entire other services have finished loading before loading this?
I am using this for a kiosk style thing for the office, where other services on the Pi need to load before opening the browser, without doing this it always loads into a blank page as the http service has not started yet
