Well, after going 3 years without a desktop, I finally have one... granted, I got the case, mobo, cpu, and an extra (read: old and since replaced) psu ... for $45. Thought it was ok for my purpose as a file server / nas. 

Pentium E2160 Dual Core 1.80 GHz
Generic Foxconn Mobo
Geforce 2100 GPU (for the hell of it... because it's headless.... )
assortment of harddrives, soon to be holding 6-7 TB of capactiy. 

I have a thought of when I get the money for them, to get two more desktops, one as a gaming machine, and the other as a rendering/streaming machine. 
That in total will be ~$4500.

That's an awesome sounding NAS. Being a cheap bastard I'd probably just hook my raspberry pi up to two external drives and run it headless. In fact now that I think about it that sounds like something I'll need to put in my agenda. Put that little guy to work instead of laying around in a shoebox.

I don't think I'd fill up 7TB anytime soon, even if I backed up every single dvd, cd, vhs, cassette tape, vinyl, video game discs, floppies, and every hard drive in my house twice I'd still get a few gigs shy of 4TB. I think I'd only get past 7TB if I did high res scans of every page of every book I have.

What is your aim with the streaming machine? Are you looking into having a windows media center or a linux myth tv/xbmc box? Also what do you mean by rendering machine? Do you mean dvd backup video processing like backing up dvds using handbrake to convert the dvd into a mp4 file or the like? Or do you mean video editing?

I'm having a lot of issues lately with apps being killed and the layer once more ram frees up, they sometimes respawn. I know having 115 apps from the play store doesn't help, but I'm not even running that many, and I'm always clearing recent apps...

Any suggestions for apps that could help this? Or any improvements?

Note: I've already use greenify from the play store and it doesn't help.

Is there someone actively maintaining Toro? If not, and all that would need done is to pull the changes, and build it, I might be able to help. I don't know how to code in Android, but if it's just building, I should be able to help there.... I have toro, and have heard there might not be an active dev for it...

True?

Lol... that sux. I don't necessarily want to be an official dev, except to deploy as official, other than that I can't code worth shit. And I've been trying to get to be an official mirror

Hi all, I'm trying something new for me...
I have a directory structure that holds files for ROM's, but I don't want to just display the directory structure, I want to display direct links to the files, but in a webpage.
This webpage would generate links dynamically based on what files are in what directories that I've chosen.
This could either be a single web page that also functions as an index page, or could be a server-side php script to generate a page on a cron job...
Could someone either point me in the right direction, or post some example code on how to do that?
I'd really appreciate it!

It looks like +Andrei Gherghel and +Jason Huebel have some good stuff there. +Irish Ado I've also been directed to the "readdir" function for php also... Think that might fit a bit better. 

Thanks all. :)

My servers are currently downloading the new updates for: Toro, Toroplus, Maguro, and Grouper. Sorry Mako...
So around 7:30pm EST they should be completely downloaded and ready for sharing. :)

You can get these from: https://hearthost.co/paranoidandroid
The directories are split into respective models. 


Hope this helps you guys.

Why does my Rom, which was made for Toro, list out being also yakju? ... that makes no sense to me

Has anyone had any problems with battery life and 4G LTE? Basically once I updated to this version, 4G absolutely KILLS battery life. As in, if I'm simply streaming a radio station and have the screen off, the battery maybe lasts an hour.... I've NEVER had an issue that bad with battery life... even on heavy use, I'd still get 2 hours minimum....

Edit: forgot to add that the amount of heat generated just from 4G with minimal use is bad, but near scalding hot when tethering (which has been slightly average depending on the amount of data I'm transferring..)

Device: Verizon Samsung Galaxy Nexus (Toro)
PA version: 3.67

Interesting, PA updater from the market, says the update available for my phone, Toro galaxy nexus, is the toroplus based version of the update...

Any ideas? Good thing I am mirroring the updates...

I'll update this post with the newest Gapps soon 

Also, I'm just waiting for the PA Team to get their main server setup for all the devs. Once setup, I'll be giving them access to accounts on my servers so they can upload the builds as they are finished. I will be trying to update this thread as I get time and as new builds become available for the Nexus Devices. 

I hope everyone can benefit from this effort. :) 

Feel free to spread the HeartHost.CO brand name. I'd greatly appreciate it.
