Testing Biwin's 300X CompactFlash under Linux with the Delock 91694 FireWire to CompactFlash Reader

We wanted to test samples of 300X CompactFlash Cards from Biwin Semiconductor (HK) Company Limited. We decided to try using a different test platform than our typical iMac, and used a Xubuntu Linux desktop and the Delock 91694 CompactFlash FireWire 800 Reader. The great news is that the FireWire reader works just fine under Linux, and we were able to complete our benchmarks tests on these non-DLSR grade CompactFlash cards.

Our test machine is a Intel Core2 6300 @ 1.86GHz with 2GB RAM running Xubuntu 12.04.2 LTS. The reader was our Delock FireWire 800 to UDMA CompactFlash Drive Read-Writer 91694. We used the Linux application Disk Utility 3.0.2 to run the benchmarks. Here are the benchmarks for the cards, which are intended for general storage purposes.

Power Supply Information for Unibrain's FireRepeater Line of FireWire Repeater Hubs

12VDC 3A External Power Supplies/Adapters for Unibrain FireWire Devices)One of the more prevalent questions asked when purchasing FireWire repeater hubs is "do I need the optional power supply?" The answer to this question depends on what type of FireWire 800 or FireWire 400 devices are being used.

Quick Definitions: Self Powered vs. Bus Powered

A Self Powered FireWire device is one that plugs into the wall or utilizes internal batteries. One example is FireWire hard disk drives using 3.5in mechanism which come with their own power transformers and AC adapters. Another example are battery powered DV Camcorders. Most FireWire based audio equipment like those from Pro Tools is self powered as well

Bus Powered FireWire devices draw current from the FireWire bus itself. FireWire hard disk drives using 2.5in mechanisms are typically able to use bus power. Our CFFire800 Pro FireWire 800 UDMA CompactFlash reader requires bus power. Portable devices like the Apogee Duet require bus power as well.

If you are using self powered devices with a FireWire repeater hub, then there isn't a need to purchase an optional power supply. Conversely, if you are using bus powered FireWire products, you almost certainly need the optional power supply. [1]

Bus Power isn't always enough for multiple devices drawing current off multiple ports at the same time. If you daisy chain several devices, it also may draw more current than available. Further, the total amount of Amps a hub provides needs to divided by the number of ports to find per port current when each port is drawing current. In the case of Unibrain's FireRepeater 3A supply, this would work out approximately as follows:

Unibrain FireRepeater-800 Pro FireWire 800 IEEE 1394b Repeater Hub 5 Port
(3 amperes) / 5 = 0.6 amperes approximately per port (max)
Unibrain FireRepeater-800 Pro FireWire 800 IEEE 1394b Repeater Hub 4 Port
(3 amperes) / 4 = 0.75 amperes approximately per port (max)
Unibrain FireRepeater 800 FireWire 800 IEEE 1394b Repeater Hub 3 Port
(3 amperes) / 3 = 1 ampere approximately per port (max)
Unibrain FireRepeater 400 FireWire 400 IEEE 1394a Repeater Hub 3 Port
(3 amperes) / 3 = 1 ampere approximately per port (max)

Often computer companies will list ports by watts, instead of amps. When a company lists Watts for their FireWire ports, divide it by 12 (FireWire is typically 12 Volts) to find the Amperage.

The calculation above are the worst case scenario, typical application rarely see devices drawing current of each port.

Unibrain 3 port hub for 2 CFFire800 Pro FireWire 800 to UDMA CompactFlash Drives[1] A notible exception is the CFFire800 Pro FireWire 800 UDMA CompactFlash reader with Unibrain's 3 Port FireWire 800 Hub. We've tested this off a powered Mac port and were able to run two CFFire800 Pro's without the addtional power supply. Here is a quote from our test results.

While our CFFire800 Pro uses FireWire bus power, we knew it draws less than 500mA, while the MacBook Pro provides just under 1A of current while running on batteries. One product we offer, Unibrain's extremely portable FireRepeater 800, splits source current between two ports. With that in mind we set out to test two CFFire800 Pro readers with FireRepeater 800 to see if it provided enough power off a single FireWire 800 port to enable both CompactFlash readers; we found it worked flawlessly.

12VDC 3A External Power Supplies/Adapters for Unibrain FireWire Devices

This versatile adapter provides up to 3A stable regulated 12V DC output. For use with Unibrain Fire Repeaters, Fire-i Digital cameras and Unibrain FireWire External Hard Drives.

FireWire Cable Converter Adapter Plugs Illustrated

FireWire 800 (6 to 9 pin) (9 to 6 pin), and FireWire 400 (6 to 4 pin) Cable Converter and Adapter Plugs
How handy is this photo? It sure makes a lot of prose unnecessary. These adapters cover just about any FireWire 400 or FireWire 800 conversion scenario one could think of.

Converter plugs for FireWire cables allow changing the cable plug type at the very end to match that of the port it's being plugged into. For FireWire 400 (IEEE 1394a) ports, there are converter plugs allowing 9-pin cables to plug into 6-pin ports and converter plugs allowing 6-pin cables to plug into 4-pin ports. For FireWire 800 (IEEE 1394b) there is an adapter plug allowing 6-pin cables to plug into 9-pin ports.

Using Elan's U111-M SRAM and ATA Flash PCMCIA PC Card Drive with Unix-like Systems [first draft]

U111-M USB to PCMCIA PC Card ATA Flash and SRAM
EverythingHerePlus.com announces a first draft of a document which outlines the use of the BSD and Linux compatible USB reader for PCMCIA PC Card SRAM and ATA Flash memory devices. While the draft isn't complete, experienced users will have no problems using the command line instructions to complete tasks.

Elan's U111-M PCMCIA PC Card reader for SRAM and ATA Flash memory devices is unique in that the reader itself brokers all the interfacing with the PC Card and presents itself to the host computer as a USB mass storage device. In addition to working on The Windows platforms, the device works with various versions of BSDs and Linux. Because of this, the U111-M allows users of Unix-like platforms to perform actions on these cards using common command line tools that usually require specialized and expensive software for The Windows. EverythingHerePlus hopes the document will be helpful to those wanting to deploy the U111-M with Unix-like systems.

FireRepeater-800 PRO gets a glowing review from IT Enquirer

FireRepeater-800 Pro FireWire 800 IEEE 1394b Repeater Hub 4 Port
IT Enquirer's Erik Vlietinck summed up his review of the 4 port FireWire 800 FireRepeater-800 PRO repeater hub with this glowing endorsement:

In contrast to its competitors, Unibrain’s FireRepeater-800 PRO has a wall mounting bracket to secure the unit in place, and the ability to screw-lock your FireWire cables in place. I would recommend the Unibrain FireRepeater-800 PRO to anyone wanting to connect more devices to his computer than he can daisy-chain, and up to a longer distance than is possible without a repeater device. [full review]

The FireWire 800 four port repeater hub, along with the five and three port models of the FireRepeater line are all available at EverythingHerePlus. For people needing a FireWire 400 model, we still stock the Three Port FireWire 400 Repeater Hub.

The Death and Life of the Great American School System: How Testing and Choice Are Undermining Education (Hardcover)



As an education historian and former assistant secretary of education, Ravitch has witnessed the trends in public education over the past 40 years and has herself swung from public-school advocate to market-driven accountability and choice supporter back to public-school advocate. With passion and insight, she analyzes research and draws on interviews with educators, philanthropists, and business executives to question the current direction of reform of public education. In the mid-1990s, the movement to boost educational standards failed on political concerns; next came the emphasis on accountability with its reliance on standardized testing. Now educators are worried that the No Child Left Behind mandate that all students meet proficiency standards by 2014 will result in the dismantling of public schools across the nation. Ravitch analyzes the impact of choice on public schools, attempts to quantify quality teaching, and describes the data wars with advocates for charter and traditional public schools. Ravitch also critiques the continued reliance on a corporate model for school reform and the continued failure of such efforts to emphasize curriculum. Conceding that there is no single solution, Ravitch concludes by advocating for strong educational values and revival of strong neighborhood public schools. For readers on all sides of the school-reform debate, this is a very important book. --Vanessa Bush
Review
NYSun.com
“Public education is a tough enterprise. It won’t be fixed overnight. But if we stick with a back to basics approach, saturated with the solid American democratic values that Ms. Ravitch advocates, we won’t be so prone to fall for the silver bullets that never seem to find their mark.”

Los Angeles Times
“The Death and Life of the Great American School System may yet inspire a lot of high-level rethinking.”

Valerie Strauss, Washington Post
“Her credibility with conservatives is exactly why it would be particularly instructive for everyone--whether you have kids in school or not--to read The Death and Life of the Great American School System.”

Booklist, starred
“For readers on all sides of the school-reform debate, this is a very important book.”

Library Journal, starred
“[A]n important and highly readable examination of the educational system, how it fails to prepare students for life after graduation, and how we can put it back on track…Anyone interested in education should definitely read this accessible, riveting book.”

“Diane Ravitch is the rarest of scholars—one who reports her findings and conclusions, even when they go against conventional wisdom and even when they counter her earlier, publicly espoused positions. A ‘must’ read for all who truly care about American education.”

Linda Darling-Hammond, Charles E. Ducommon Professor of Education, Stanford University, and Founding Executive Director, National Commission for Teaching & America's Future
“Diane Ravitch is one of the most important public intellectuals of our time. In this powerful and deftly written book, she takes on the big issues of American education today, fearlessly articulating both the central importance of strong public education and the central elements for strengthening our schools. Anyone who cares about public education should read this book.”

E. D. Hirsch, Jr., author of Cultural Literacy, The Schools We Need, and The Making of Americans
“No citizen can afford to ignore this brave book by our premier historian of education. Diane Ravitch shines a bright, corrective light on the exaggerated claims of school reformers on both the left and the right, and offers an utterly convincing case for abandoning quick fixes in favor of nurturing the minds and hearts of our students from the earliest years with enabling knowledge and values.”

New York Times
“Ms. Ravitch…writes with enormous authority and common sense.”

The Nation
“In an age when almost everybody has an opinion about schools, Ravitch’s name must be somewhere near the top of the Rolodex of every serious education journalist in this country.”

Wall Street Journal
“Ms. Ravitch [is] the country’s soberest, most history-minded education expert.”

Christian Science Monitor
“Ravitch’s hopeful vision is of a national curriculum – she’s had enough of fly-by-night methods and unchallenging requirements. She’s impatient with education that is not personally transformative. She believes there is experience and knowledge of art, literature, history, science, and math that every public school graduate should have.”

National Review
“The book intelligently and readably addresses today’s education controversies, using a combination of anecdotes, case studies, and statistics…[I]t’s a must-read for education policymakers at all levels of government.”

Time Magazine
“Ravitch’s critique is an essential one – passionate, well considered and completely logical.”

Jay Matthews,WashingtonPost.com
“Ravitch is our best living historian of education. In my view she is the best ever.”

Boston Globe
“The book that follows is, if not a mea culpa, perhaps something more valuable – a fiercely argued manifesto against fads in education reform and for public schools, and the teachers and students who inhabit them.”

Forbes.com
“Diane Ravitch’s important new book, The Death and Life of the Great American School System, will surely stir controversy, exactly as she intends. For it embodies and expresses—with her characteristic confidence, style and verve—a fundamental change in her views about where U.S. K-12 education should be heading.”

Marc By Marc Jacobs Maripol Collection

Marc by Marc Jacobs Maripol Plastic Ring 100% Plastic. Available in Black, Green, Fuschia, Yellow, Blue, Teal & Orange
Like all Marc By Marc Jacobs collections, these items are available for a limited time.

Maripol was brought up in France before moving to New York, USA in 1976. She is an artist, film producer, fashion designer and stylist who has had an influence on the looks of many influential artists, including Grace Jones, Deborah Harry, and Madonna. Maripol is also a Polaroid artist photographer who has exhibited her photos in art galleries all over the world. Her photographic work is being collected by museums. In 2006, Maripol had a new book of her life's photography published.

Maripol is best known for designing for and styling pop singer Madonna during the Madonna and Like a Virgin albums in the mid-1980s. Maripol's trademark black rubber bracelets, jewelry and crucifixes became as iconic as Madonna herself in these early years.

In the early 1980s, Maripol was the art director for hip Italian boutique Fiorucci. By the mid-80s, Maripol had achieved some success with her own shop, Maripolitan, in the NoHo area of New York. She also made a line of official Madonna jewelry and accessories for the Like a Virgin tour.

At the same time she directed documentary films, such as "Crack is whack" on 1980s artist Keith Haring.

She has also worked as a film producer, most notably on Downtown 81, a film starring artist Jean-Michel Basquiat and featuring Blondie lead singer Deborah Harry, and musical interludes my many New York No Wave bands. The movie, directed by then partner Edo and written by Glenn O'Brien, was filmed in 1980-81 as New York Beat. However, it was not until 1998 that the film was rediscovered, cleaned up, edited and released (as Downtown 81) after being selected at the director's fortnight of the Cannes film festival in the year 2000.

She has been the art director on music videos for Cher, D'Angelo, Elton John, and Luther Vandross.

U111-M Q&A, Compatibility with Mac OS X?

U111M USB reader for ATA Flash and SRAM PCMCIA PC CardsQuestion: Interested in purchasing the USB to PC card reader/writer but i want to make sure it is compatible with Apple computers and OS X.

Answer: Unfortunately, the U111-M currently doesn't work with Mac OS X as of this writing (January 2010). We've tested it extensively under Linux (Xubuntu Linux 9.04 (Jaunty Jackalope) amd64 edition), and even discovered viable work-around methods to get the U111M to work with OpenBSD (OpenBSD 4.6 beta i386 edition). However, the way the U111-M presents itself to Mac OS X precludes using even low level commands like diskutil and mount_msdos from Terminal. Mac OS X sees the U111M reader, and even the capacity of the inserted PCMCIA PC Card, but can't read the MBR of the PCMCIA PC Card, and hence is unable to treat it as a filesystem.

We're not sure if this is Elan or Apple's fault, but we're just as disappointed that it doesn't work with the Mac since we're Mac users too. If you have a spare Linux or OpenBSD machine, we can send you instructions for getting the U111M to work with those systems. U111-M also works with Windows 2000, XP 32, Vista 32.

If you have no need to read PCMCIA PC Card SRAM, and just need to read PCMCIA PC Card ATA Flash, we do have two different combinations of products that are well supported under Mac OS X.

PCM-CR-UEMUL03 MotionFlash32 USB 2.0 to 5 Slot Multi-Card Read-Writer 
in conjunction with the
ADP-ATA-CF CompactFlash Type I to 16-bit PC Card Type I/II Adapter for ATA Flash

or

PCM-CR-FW81ECF-02 CFFire800 Pro FireWire 800 to UDMA CompactFlash Drive Read-Writer 
in conjunction with the
ADP-ATA-CF CompactFlash Type I to 16-bit PC Card Type I/II Adapter for ATA Flash

Ordinarily we would recommend the FireWire solution because of overwhelming speed advantages, but ATA Flash PCMCIA PC Cards are so slow (PIO mode 4 -- max), that even USB 2.0 is more than adequate to read and write to them.

USB 2.0 Y Cable of Choice, DoubleQueue

DoubleQueue USB 2.0 Y Cable at EverythingHerePlus.comThe DoubleQueue USB 2.0 Y Cable features two upstream male A connectors, one for data and power, one for power only, and provides a downstream female A connector. Designed for notebooks and computers that don't provide enough current at their USB 2.0 ports, DoubleQueue's ability to draw power from a second port allows power hungry devices like WWAN 3G modems and hard drives. Some computers provide as little as 300mA per port, which while within specification, is woefully inadequate for many USB 2.0 devices. The DoubleQueue USB 2.0 Y Cable's ability to provide up to 1000mA to 1200mA when used with 500mA ports, and up to 600mA when used with 300mA ports. Providing a female A receptacle allows DoubleQueue to accept USB 2.0 and 1.1 male A cable ends and devices like the MicroU2E-MV without any other adapters. The DoubleQueue USB 2.0 Y Cable can be used as a normal USB 2.0 extender cable simple by using the data and power portion of the cable only.

DoubleQueue USB 2.0 Y Cables the best choice for a range of devices including 3G/4G WWAN wireless mobile broadband devices like the Kyocera KPC680 or Option Wireless GT Max 3.6 Express when used with the MicroU2E family of adapters, and even hard drives and SSD devices requiring extra electrical current.

Available at EverythingHerePlus.com for just $3.50 with inexpensive USPS Priority Mail shipping.

technology musings: U111-M USB to PC Card Read-Writer 1 Slot PCMCIA PC Card ATA Flash and SRAM Memory Cards

U111M USB reader for ATA Flash and SRAM PC CardsThe U111-M is an external read-writer for PCMCIA PC Card SRAM, and ATA Flash memory cards. The U111-M works without additional software or drivers on supported operating systems, treating both SRAM and ATA Flash as standard removable USB mass storage devices. Used in concert with a Type II PC Card adapter, the U111M USB to PCMCIA Memory PC Card drive will work with a variety of consumer memory cards including CompactFlash and SD Cards. Used with desktop or notebooks computers, the U111-M USB to PC Card Read-Writer 1 Slot PCMCIA PC Card ATA Flash and SRAM makes copying files to and from PCMCIA PC Card SRAM and PCMCIA PC Card ATA Flash devices simple and straight forward without confusing software interfaces.

The U111-M comes with a USB 'Y' for use on rare systems with underpowered ports. Simply plug in the additional power only connection in order to provide necessary current. The U111M provides an inexpensive, hassle free solution to deploying legacy PCMCIA PC Card memory SRAM and ATA Flash cards on modern Linux and Windows computers with USB 1.1 or USB 2.0 ports.
