As i have mentioned, I have an Agfa SnapScan, and it appears to have
died. I have bought a new scanner, and checked compatibility with the
sane website. The Canon CanoScan LiDE 120 is listed as supported, but
with scanimage 1.0.27, while the up to date scanimage on Debian 9.7 is
I do have the backports enabled for APT and Synaptic, but it appears
to not yet have been backported. I have found some mixed comments on
the LinuxQuestions.org website, but from mid 2017, so the cautions may
no longer apply.
I would appreciate any comments and suggestions from this community.
I have a server that regularly runs jobs to import email via IMAP from
The cron runs a bash scrip that in turn iterates through the customer's
install directories and then goes through each mail box that users have
configured and parses the email. This is done by going back to get 100
email headers checking that the message ID hasn't been imported and if
not getting the full body.
The problem is that these jobs seem to run over each other and then
eventually (occasionally) it will hang the server.
I've tried a few things like getting less headers, spacing the cron jobs
out and using lock files but neither combination has resolved this
issue. I suspect that some of the IMAP services take too long to respond
or rate limit connections (but since I don't control them I can't be sure).
I am looking for suggestions as to:
- How to fix the underlying problem
- How to configure Nagios to monitor specific processes
I've been reading about IPFS (https://www.ipfs.io/), and I'm becoming
interested in these emerging peer to peer technologies.
Suppose that I want to share files among several of my machines, with
synchronization of files/directories, but without a server/client
arrangement. Encrypted network communication is also desirable, and none
of the data should reside on anyone else's hardware. For convenience,
modifying a file on one machine should result in changes eventually
being distributed to the others as automatically as possible.
Are there good options at this point? If so, what are the trade-offs and
This is partly a matter of curiosity, but if there's a good solution, I
would be interested in trying it.

PERHAPS, if the list is going to receive an email with faulty SPF, then
it might be best to remove that header... better still, reject the
message and have the sender fix the problems!

We have an existing platform that uses a separate MySQL instance for
each customer and a shared application code base in PHP. Our platform
has an API but this is mainly used for system admin and not fully
featured and is an in-house MVC framework. We have been given a spec
from a customer as to what they want in the app. We will be hiring a
developer for this work
- To have a phone app for both major platforms that we can re-use and
re-sell to other customers of our existing platform if they need it
I am seeking input on:
- API / Framework
We could use our own API but as its a separate project we could use a
well know framework (Laravel, etc) and reduce the leaning curve for the
developer and draw from a wider candidate pool. Alternately we could
have the dev only focused upon the app and my team can work on extending
- Phone Development
Which approach have you found better; using a cross platform development
tool like Cordova (one app is developed) or using the the tools provided
by iPhone and Andriod and writing two apps?
Any feedback is appreciated.
I am moving a 1TB NTFS partition 200MB to the right using gparted and of
course it is very slow. I don't understand why gparted is moving all of
the data. Why not just move 200MB and add it to the end of the
partition? My googling only tells me how to do it but not why.
my venerable linksys wrt54gs running openwrt is still going strong, but
probably can't handle NBN 100 Mbit even on lobotomised HFC, so I guess
it's time for a new router...
any recommendations for a 2+ port gigabit and (I guess) AC WiFi that
can hopefully run openwrt ok for the next decade?
I don't need or want any USB or NAS or gaming.
ATA for landline optional.
I looked at newer linksys wrt32x but they're $450 from jb (prob $250
from amazon but they don't seem to ship to .au (again)) and also
they're outliers running marvel chipsets.
after that I just get confused in the maze of 100's of routers that
could run openwrt vs. what you can buy today that's an ok price.
I'm open to other options if they're interesting or cheaper/better -
eg. little arm boards with a couple of gige ports and ac wifi as long
as they run centos/fedora/openwrt or similar.
