My first link roll of the most interesting articles I read and quick lessons learned in the past week or so.

Lessons Learned

  • File system interopability between Linux and Windows is tough

    • Trying to get large hard drives with large and numerous files in them to work between Windows and Linux is truly awful. NTFS and exFAT suffers from numerous limitations, and are poorly supported on Linux. Next time I will try to use ext4 (or another Linux native fs) and try to get them working properly on Windows - or just give up on supporting multiple OSes via USB.
  • A quick way to get a tombstone on Android

    • Sometimes you need a quick tombstone for reference, cat /dev/random | ps or kill -5 `pidof mediaserver` will work for most devices.
