Re: Expanding Storage. NOOBS Installed!

You need to create space for expansion of sda4 first: move sda3 towards the end of the card and then do the same with sda2.
Then you can expand sda4, etc

Make sure you have a backup of your card before you start moving partitions around

I just ran into this issue myself today. I wish I had a solution for you, but I CAN confirm that it seems to be a 3B vs 3B+ difference. We are using a systemd script to change the OUI via "ip link set" prior to dhcpcd.service. The disk works fine in a 3B, but on 3B+ the network doesn't seem to work...

Which post is that? According to https://pypi.org/project/gTTS/ it should work in python 3.
You do need to install it specifically for Python 3. Use pip3 instead of pip.

You don't need an overlay for the 'GPIO start' function. You're probably confusing it with the gpio shutdown function
