Tag based FileSystem

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
I still want my tag based filesystem. I have yet to find an implementation or partial implementation that does what I want. It looks like me and a friend will start work on documenting how we want one to work, and then maybe give writing it in FUSE a try to see how feasible it is. I plan to document my ideas up here once I get a chance to sit down and think them all through, but I have been busy with playing xbox and working on school stuff for a while.

In the mean time I will finish up the encryption communication thing and implement a test for it to see how all of it works. I will post any updates/changes to that based on my efforts to finalize it.
Personally I never understood how bluetooth didn't really take off. I don't recall it being that expensive, and functionally it works decently. I think it got stuck in a sort of chicken/egg problem, no one had it so manufacturers were reluctant to include it even if it was cheap, which also created the people didn't have it problem.

Then it slowly starts to take off, and somehow some people get the brilliant idea to create bluetooth profiles, most of which are wildly incompatible with each other and also causes some devices which clearly should have some profiles to not work with other devices.

I really like the idea, and it would be wonderful if bluetooth stacks and devices were a lot more prevalent... and if you could easily change profiles on devices when newer ones come along or need updating. My phone can't do stereo bluetooth headsets because its only got a profile for mono, thats dumb, and unfixable thanks to the bluetooth stack on it.

Just another of my, where did it go technology questions. I have some more interesting things I am working on, hopefully I can post them up soon.
