I need iptables for phone numbers so I can never again get a call from the 520 area code.

Bug reports  - 
 
All synced files are 0 bytes

Since the last update or so, I am finding zero-byte files. Whole directories are ruined because every file is empty.

I am running version 2.9.5.121.

Files are synced to an external SD card, to which I have granted permission.

Update: see additional comment abut the 0-byte files. This might be a "Windows viewing MTP stuff" issue

I am syncing with ownCloud 7.

I first noticed this issue when using a webDAV setting for my folder pairs. Yesterday I also set up an owncloud 7 connection to sync the same files (but to a different SD card location).

Today I find that all the synced files are 0-bytes, as are the assorted .tacitpart files. This is true for both the webDAV sync and the ownCloud sync.

The zero-size files might be a Window/MTP/Android thing. When I view files on my phone directly the sizes appear fine. When I attach the phone to Windows 7 (forced to use MTP ) many of the files show as zero bytes. But not all.

I'm mainly syncing MP3s, and I have been able to play these "empty" files, so they are OK. I have no idea what changed to cause this. Wasn't seeing this a month or so ago.

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/17786627/files-showing-as-empty-on-pc-but-non-empty-on-smartphone

Yet there have been cases where MP3 files have become unplayable. I wonder if FolderSync is altering some file attribute when syncing.

It might be related to this: https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=38282

Residents of Scottsdale need to know that the city is planning to build a very large facility in OUR McDowell Sonoran Preserve, right at the Gateway trailhead, the most popular of all the Preserve trail heads.

Beta feedback  - 
 
Beta version keeps downloading the same file

I'm using the beta version of FolderSync on an LG Stylo G, with an external SD card (which is where I store the synced files).

It seems to be working fine, except there are some files that are repeatedly downloaded to the phone.

Situation: I am working on a set of songs. I produce the tracks and convert them to mp3 on my desktop PC and use ownCloud to sync them to my server. FolderSync then pulls down anything new *using a scheduled hourly sync).

Today I noticed that a song I updated yesterday afternoon gets downloaded on every sync execution.

If I do manual sync it gets downloaded. If I again do a manual sync a minute later, the same tracks gets downloaded again. The file on the server didn't change.

Last week I noticed a few other files were doing the same thing. I didn't need them synced so I moved them to a different, non-synced, folder, just to avoid seeing them in the log all the time.

What might cause some, but not other, files to be repeatedly downloaded?

Great place, clean, rarely have to wait for any of the larger machines. Have no idea why it's listed on Google Maps as being closed; it's definitely open for business.

I give this bookstore double thumbs-up on everything, but this only makes sense if you know what kind of place this is. It sells used books and magazines, with a strong focus on The West. I would have liked to see a larger collection of sci-fi and graphic novels, but that's just a matter of personal taste. I was really amazed at the range of Western items, plus the collection of cookbook's children's books, and history items. If by some chance you're looking for a VHS tape of something you may just find it here, too. The owner is very nice; offered my wife and I some cold drinking water. BTW, there's no A/C in the store, so if you go in the summer it will be warm. There are fans, and I didn't mind the heat, but just so you know. I've been to a fair number of used-book stores, and many of them are just collections of whatever other people don't want. Reader's Oasis, however, has a much more curated feel. Note: If you don't already know, the owner is a naturalist. When I stopped in he was wearing nothing more that a big hat, an big grin, and a partial loincloth. I say more power to him, and I don't care what he wears (or doesn't ) but it's probably not what you usually see at a book store.

Horrible. Avoid. Overpriced and they serve junk. On the bright side you get a lot of that junk, but it's so poorly done it's almost laughable. They have no idea how to make a Ceaser Salad (hint: do not use vinaigrette); the shrimp cocktail is served pre-smothered in sauce; the linguini is a awash in over-salted cream sauce, drowning the flavor of the assorted bits of seafood. The crab cakes are mealy and weak. There are many other restaurants in the same area; hard to imagine they could be worse.

I enjoyed the Bamboo Club; a little pricey but good food. However, the one at Desert Ridge has closed.
