Posted by jpluimers on 2020/05/07

Cool tool:

MultiBootUSB is a cross platform software written in python which allows you to install multiple live linux on a USB disk non destructively and option to uninstall distros. Try out the world’s first true cross platform multi boot live usb creator for free. Download Now!

Information and downloads on [WayBackMultiBootUSB.

There are actually a few repositories within [WayBack] mbusb (multibootusb) · GitHub of which one has a ruby implementation as well.

A more elaborate article is on [WayBack] How to Install Multiple Linux Distributions on One USB, but the site should get you going just fine.

That duh moment when you cannot read an SD card: it’s SDHC/SDXC in an SD card reader; Secure Digital – Wikipedia

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/02/18

That moment you facepalm yourself because you forgot that particular machine won’t read SD cards because they are too big for the SD card reader in it: SD goes up to 4 gigabyte, anything bigger (nowadays basically everything) requires SDXC or SDHC compatible readers.

Quotes from Wikipedia:

However, older host devices do not recognize SDHC or SDXC memory cards, although some devices can do so through a firmware upgrade.[11] Older Windows operating systems released before Windows 7 require patches or service packs to support access to SDHC cards.[12][13][14]

Older host devices generally do not support newer card formats, and even when they might support the bus interface used by the card,[6]there are several factors that arise:

  • A newer card may offer greater capacity than the host device can handle (over 4 GB for SDHC, over 32 GB for SDXC).
  • A newer card may use a file system the host device cannot navigate (FAT32 for SDHC, exFAT for SDXC)
  • Use of an SDIO card requires the host device be designed for the input/output functions the card provides.
  • The hardware interface of the card was changed starting with the version 2.0 (new high-speed bus clocks, redefinition of storage capacity bits) and SDHC family (Ultra-high speed (UHS) bus)
  • UHS-II has physically more pins but is backwards compatible to UHS-I and non-UHS for both slot and card.[27]
  • Some vendors produced SDSC cards above 1GB before the SDA had standardized a method of doing so.
SD compatibility table
SDSC card SDHC card SDHC UHS card SDXC card SDXC UHS card SDIO card
SDSC slot Yes No No No No No
SDHC slot Yes Yes Yes[a] No No No
SDHC UHS slot Yes[a] Yes[a] Yes[b] No No No
SDXC slot Yes Yes Yes[a] Yes Yes[a] No
SDXC UHS slot Yes[a] Yes[a] Yes[b] Yes[a] Yes[b] No
SDIO slot Varies Varies Varies Varies Varies Yes

The tragedy of FireWire: Collaborative tech torpedoed by corporations | Ars Technica

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/11/26

Another piece of history: FireWire also known as IEEE-1394 [WayBack].

I still have that iPod, cables and IEEE-1394 adapters to communicate with it (:

It didn’t help that by now various types of connections – including FireWire, USB and others –  are also used for DMA hacking. One less connection type, one less risk of entry:
