Does anyone know if (and how) to access a list of blocked calls via the CM built-in function?

Why is it that anytime I update my partner's nexus 4 it ends up crashing randomly. Not impressed.

Anyone running deluge:

My deluge seems to randomly shut-down for no reason, have you experienced it and how can I stop it from happening or get it to restart automatically.

I had this problem.  My work around was to create a cron job that checks if the service is running, and if not restart it.  Sometimes still had an issue where the daemon is running, but not downloading.  I never solved this.

Install a TOR Proxy on my RPi
Looking to be able to point specific apps to the proxy only, do not want all net traffic going via TOR

Can you anyone point me the direction of any good tutorials/guides?

Well deluge, the app in question allows you to specify a proxy for specific tasks. Just wondered if I needed to install TOR in a specific way.

How to permanently mount a remote folder

I've mounted a remote windows share on my RPi using the following, which works great:
sudo mount -t cifs //workstation004/media_tmp_upload -o username=MyUserName /mnt/remotecomputername_media_tmp_upload

What would the /etc/fstab entry be?

+Michael McDade works a treat, thanks. I'd just missed the password, hoped I could exclude it and it would prompt, lol.

I wonder... Did you add the user to the group, and then within the same login session attempt to access the directory and failed?

If so, that's probably why: the groups are only applied to the user at login time.

30something getting on with life...
Introduction
I'm a 30-something with an avid interest in anything IT.  

I'm particularly into open-source software / companies, those that promote positive ideals and not just ripping the money out of the wallets of people who are addicted to tech/gadgets.  

I prefer Linux over other OS and Android over other Mobile OS.  I do this because they are predominantly open-source and they stimulate people to try and improve.  

I will ALWAYS prefer products/services that have the following Terms & Conditions: [You may do what you want with this product/service, you may try to improve it, copy and pass it round your friends, do what you want]

I welcome people from anywhere in the world, as long as they A) Don't have their head stuck half way up their rectum... B) They speak to me (and post mostly) in English...

Please note that I do not use G+ to specifically make new friends. I use it to share information, news and see what goes on in the world.  If I regularly interact with certain people on certain topics, so be it.  So do not tag me in a message like "Hi +Barry Smith", as it will not get answered.
Had a leaking pipe (from the sink to Washing Machine), had been advised it could be just a washer, but didn't have a clue more than that. Overton Bathroom Centre provided a washer after showing a pic on my phone and explained what probably needed doing was able to disconnect the hose and replace the washer. Leak sorted.

We went here for our first baby scan. The experience was generally good, was seen within 10 minutes of our appointment time and it didn't take long. I'm not however impressed that we could not take our own pics/vids of the scan. I would really like some official justification as to why we are prevented from doing so.
