Should I switch my home to IPv6?

I am shopping around for a new ISP. Exaphone are offering a reasonable deal, with an option to connect using IPv6.

Sadly, their fixed IP costs are astronomical even with IPv6, without any justification I can see.

The question is: should I? Do standard linksys routers support IPv6? Will I be able to get any level of
bittorrent bandwidth with my IP unreachable to other peers running IPv4?

What do you say?

How do I debug this (mailman)?

I'm trying to set up mailman on a new host (transferring my VPS to a new machine). This is running Debian. Mailman is set up, shows up in the web interface. I transferred the mailing list. I'm trying to send myself a password reminder, and.... nothing.

The postfix logs don't show anything at all.
/var/lib/mailman/qfils/virgin shows something that looks like the password reminder
Nothing appears in my inbox.

All tips on the internet say to look for the mailer's logs to find out what's wrong, but the mailer doesn't show any logs at all.

Ideas?

Shachar

Boot sequence on Ubuntu 14.04

Greetings,

I hastily tried to upgrade from 10.04 to 14.04 using do-relase-upgrade
It turned out to be a bad idea.
Now after boot I get something like "can not mount /" and then it suggests that I will type (among other things) M for maintenance (start a shell)
First flaw I noticed is missing init functions typically in /lib/lsb/init_functions.d
I also noticed that init_functions file is not up to date so I copied them from a stable14.04 installation. This operation enabled running them scripts in /etc/init.d and also the service command.
Also I had to create a directory /run/network so ifup -a will start.
Still I couldn't figure out what step in the boot process I am missing that fails to mount /
Currently I setup the services on this server manually including:
mount -rw,remount /
mountall
networking
ifup -a // Had to do it separately.
smbd
nmbd
ssh
postgresql-8.4
apache2

the server is running in full but I guess it has some security issues.
I can not use the init command (i.e. init 2) to initiate the machine. It reboots and I have to start all over again.

I intend to install a new server instead but for curiosity sake I want to keep the bad server in order to learn more about upstart.

I did not find any articles about boot sequence with upstart other than how to build rc files and a few about the conf files in /etc/init

Will appreciate some good reading on the subject.

Thanks.

sd card file system on android

Hello All

I am looking for phone models with android (maybe version number)  that support sd card formated with ext2 or ext3. Preferable ext2 since it's not journaled.

I'd like to save big files (1-2gb each file) on the sd.

Thanks

I've written about some business models for web-based publishing here:

https://plus.google.com/+ShlomiFish/posts/MRLntf3xu5Y

Some of them have correspondence to open source. See:

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
Alternative profitable business models for Web-based commerce.

This is a list of 5 business models for web-based commerce that do not require
depending on advertising:


1. Collect donations or ask for money for public appearances in advance - see
https://plus.google.com/+ShlomiFish/posts/GUpTuA6641x .

2. The Flickr model - charge people for a premium model.

3. The Bandcamp/Humble-Bundle model - pay what you want (people can be very
generous).

4. The cloud model - pay for hosting or a MMORPG account
(World-of-Warcraft/etc.) or whatever.

5. Pay to liberate - collect money to make a CC-by-nc-sa work CC-by/etc.

6. Sell merchandise - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oNZove4OTtI .

7. One can also set up non-intrusive ads like those provided by
http://projectwonderful.com/ , but I doubt they'll be profitable.
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Another suggestion I can give you is to work a lot on publicity, social
networking, etc. - both in real life and in Internet-based social media venues.

See:

http://www.reddit.com/r/Objectivism/comments/2c1fue/the_importance_of_human_networking/

A chauffeur with whom I stroke a conversation at a McDonalds restaurant close to
Heathrow airport in London told me he now gets most of his customers from
social media outlets such as Facebook or Twitter. The newfound possibilities
from real-life and electronic social networking are very much reflected in
stories here:

* http://www.shlomifish.org/humour/Buffy/A-Few-Good-Slayers/

There are plenty of online communities for various topics on the Internet.
Find some of them that you are interested in and contribute to them. There are
Reddit subreddits, wikis (Wikipedia, Wikia wikis, etc.), IRC channels on
Freenode/etc., Facebook groups and pages, Twitter feeds, mailing lists, etc.
and you should be able to contribute to some of them.

The greatest threat for any business is obscurity.

You may also wish to invest some money in buying ads, commercials,
promotions or whatever - nothing wrong with that and this money may be well
worth it in publicity.

Finally note the Carpe Diem / "He who saved one man has essentially saved the
world entire principle" - don't try to maximise your audience immediately.
Invest time in each and every friend and recipient:

* http://www.shlomifish.org/humour.html#carpe_diem

Finally, I should note that your English does not sound idiomatic (although I
admit I heard much worse). You should work on improving it. See my advice for
how to do that here:

Question about how to make a living from open source

Hi All,
I am in need of assistance.

I am currently working as a freelancer coding stuff in a company.
However, although I am making good living, this does not scale much (and promotion is out of the question :) ).

Anyway, I am looking for ways to scale.

One of the ideas that were given to me is to compile couchbase or postgres and distribute the binaries with a support license. Find 4-5 customers which pay big bucks and make a living. Though, not much scale there either, unless i start taking employees...

Another idea is taking employees but people in the business are telling me i am better off staying a freelancer than taking employees. Not sure what is true here.

One other idea I had is hosting complex solutions for sites. Like postgresql couchbase etc... which is difficult for the average joe and making it scale like heroku etc...

Can someone give me a clue?

Thanks!

Tzahi Fadida.

How to sort a file by pure ASCII order?

I encountered a counterintuitive behavior of 'sort' in modern Linux
releases.

I checked the sorting behavior of sort, as installed in Debian Jessie
and Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.
Turns out that the default behavior of sort (with locale=en_US.UTF-8) is
not to sort by ASCII order, but as if letters and digits are more
important to sort order than punctuation marks.

Attached please find a sort-test.txt file and the output of
sort < sort-test.txt (as the file actual.txt).

To show how would the output look like using pure ASCII sort, I sorted
sort-test.txt using python-sort.py (attached).
and got the result reproduced in correct.txt (attached).

The problem is then what options would get GNU sort to sort like
python-sort.py?

Can anyone shed a light on the matter?
