Recovering data from a failing Android adoptable storage

Background My phone running Android stopped being able to read its Adoptable Storage™ and so lost all non-stock apps and their data (Riot, OSMand+, Signal, etc) as well as the shared “home dir” containing DCIM, Documents, Downloads. Most of this is backed up in various ways but I’d like to get the whole storage back. The phone is rooted, using the LineageOS method with ADB root access enabled, so I can copy the encryption keys with a USB cable.

Coworking spaces in Portland, OR

Three collaborative spaces I know well enough to recommend, written up in response to a friend’s search. Collective Agency Open floorplan collectivist space, with lots of community facilities including a full kitchen and side rooms with whiteboards and phones. Some have reported eerie quiet in the main area during the day weirds them out but you should try it and see for yourself. They host an all-day open house once monthly.

FUSE vs the Temp Files

I moved my Documents folder into camli (on my home ARM server) and have been accessing it via FUSE for 10 days or so. Overall, the FUSE filesystem has been unstable. 1. FUSE exits occasionally without explaination This is probably an easy fix, I haven’t looked at the code yet. 2. writes block until everything has been uploaded successfully This is painful over slow links. Not only does the writing app (VIM/sublime) block, but also things tmux (not sure why, maybe only one thread in FUSE somewhere?

Grid systems research https://wiki.thingsandstuff.org/Grid/rhythm http://fourkitchens.com/blog/2013/10/14/singularity-grids-without-limits Prioritize result over process purity I am using Harp to build my pages. However, it is sub-optimal when it comes to CSS and JS builds. For CSS, I think I need to be using Ruby Sass instead of libsass, which Harp doesn’t do. For JS, Brunch or Grunt I think. They are purpose-built for that. Maybe something like this makes sense: Sass -> public/styles Brunch -> public/scripts Unfortunately, Harp doesn’t support –watch for compile mode.
