cool visualization of bart trains arriving with javascript

maybe multiple select isn't the right way to think of these...
maybe different lists is the way to go
or nested sortable lists..

looking into different options for a sortable list, preferably with multiple select options...
would be nice if click,shift-click worked to select,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_cp.r_qf.,cf.osb&fp=cb5928975d0a7e48&ix=seb&ion=1&biw=1024&bih=514

This is a nice working example, that seems simple enough
no longer maintained
(forgot about multiple select at this point though)

other options:

sudo parted -a optimal /dev/sdb mklabel mac
sudo parted -a optimal /dev/sdb mklabel msdos #is this Master Boot Record?

sudo parted -a optimal /dev/sdb mkpart primary NTFS 20.5kB 2000GB
Warning: The resulting partition is not properly aligned for best performance.
Ignore/Cancel? C


formatted with mac os X: (GUID Partition Table)
sudo parted -a optimal /dev/sdb print
Model: SAMSUNG HD204UI (scsi)
Disk /dev/sdb: 2000GB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B

looking into Advanced Format drives

they recommend parted (2.2 and up) instead of fdisk:
parted -v

#this starts in an interactive mode similar to fdisk:
sudo parted -a optimal /dev/sdb

#can also supply commands via command line:

sudo ls #prime sudo

sudo parted -a optimal /dev/sdb mklabel gpt
sudo parted -a optimal /dev/sdb print

sudo parted -a optimal /dev/sdb rm 1
sudo parted -a optimal /dev/sdb rm 2

sudo parted -a optimal /dev/sdb mkpart primary NTFS 1MB 2000GB
sudo mkfs.ntfs -L DATA -f /dev/sdb1

sudo parted -a optimal /dev/sdb mkpart primary hfs 1MB 2000GB
format on mac

sudo parted -a optimal /dev/sdb mkpart primary ext4 1MB 2000GB
sudo mkfs.ext4 -L backups /dev/sdb1

sudo mkfs.vfat -n UBUNTU /dev/sdb1
format USB drive

be sure to label the drive externally
when it was first initialized
what file system
capacity (in case it's not clear from the drive)
