Windows (10) doesn’t allow the same resource twice

Written by  on February 4, 2021

So, the NAS* I use for years is separated into different partitions. Some for general access and things and one for music, which has a special user, which owns just read-only privileges.

Linux: no problem: mount as many shares with Gigolo and you are done.

Windows: use that 90s-style network-mount of the ‘explorer’ and add share by resource and credentials.
“\\ds213\musik” .. Works, but is awkward and not comfortable.
then you want to mount the second share with different credentials and you get “Can’t mount the same share** with different credentials”.

mount once by resource-name and once by ip: “\\\musik”

Another approach via the hosts-file.

* DS213 from Synology: 2 bay; now running 24/7 for 5 (?) years; upgraded inbetween from 2 TByte drives to 4 TB with complete replication
** is actually “different shares at the same host”, but who am I with my limited knowledge?

RamBLE and the (german) Covid19 tracker

Quicker posts, less retardation! One of the goals for 2021 was to 0. write more often, 1. faster after ‘doing’ and 2. therefore also covering more things which were ‘touched’
There’s still a pile of topics left from 2020 xD

In Novembre a colleague and me talked about one of his acquantainces which wrote an iOS-app, which can show how many “Corona Warn App”-users are nearby. I was puzzling over this and also wondered if really some special app or some bluetooth-receiver-tinkering is needed. I still own that one BT receiver for the Raspberry.

First: So, quick check for BT sniffers in the playstore showed RamBLE.
Second: 5 min of googling found the UUID used for the exposure notification: “fd6f”.

So, let’s combine and see what is shown for an location I traverse often:

Quintessence: check the market before developing something 😉
