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?

Haifux: Call for speakers

Hi all,

After a short August vacation, Haifux is back. And it seems like it's 
some kind of tradition that the lecture list is empty at this time of 
the year.

So, any takers? The next slot -- a week from now -- is vacant. Grab it 
while it's hot!

Remember that you don't have to be an expert in the field of your 
lecture, even though many are. Haifux is also a good place to test-run 
talks intended for less responsive audiences.

See you,
    Eli

[YBA] new package for simple HTTP file upload

Dear colleagues,
I have posted a new package for simple parsing of multipart/form-data file 
uploads with no dependencies on third-party code at

http://tkos.co.il/downloads/misc/libmpfd-1.0.0.tar.xz

The package is derived from code by Grigory Dmitrievich Gorelov posted at
http://grigory.info/MPFDParser.About.html

Sourse code is C++.

The libmpfd-1.0.0.tar.xz adds autoconf capability and a Mongoose example 
and some refactoring of the code. Does not handle filenames with spaces or 
Hebrew, yet...

Shavua tov,

  - yba

Who is leaking memory in my Linux Jessie/KDE4 installation?

I have a 8GB PC which runs Linux Debian Jessie with KDE 4.4.
My problem is to find out who is occupying almost 4GB memory some time
after rebooting, even when nothing heavy is running.

The heaviest applications that I run are:
- A VirtualBox virtual machine occupying 3GB memory
- Google Chrome browser (version 37.0.2062.94, 64-bit)
- Evolution 3.12.2.

However, even when they are closed, a lot memory is still reported to be
in use.

My question is: besides top, what tools can be used to find who is using
all this memory?
The next question, of course, is how to get rid of those memory hogs
without destabilizing the system.
