comment How to acquire a low latency realtime HD video image?
These devices won't work with a laptop. There may be USB3.0 capture cards I think?

Would be good to have a high quality USB 3.0 camera using the USB UVC class. It should be usable without drivers on Linux and OS X this way.

There also seem to bee some industrial vision cameras using USB 3.0. Expensive, usually proprietary SDK, usually Windows only. That is not what I look for...

comment How long does it usually take to format a 2TB external HD using ext4 and gparted?
ext4 can be formatted in a defered way, where most of formatting commences in background while the filesystem can already be used after a very short initalization period. Using mkfs.ext4, the option would be -E lazy_itable_init=1, and this even is a default setting it seems. I don't know how to make gparted using this option, but maybe it is possible. Using this feature, a 2GB partition gets available after about one minute.

comment Is it possible to make the OOM killer intervent earlier?
I think this answer is a bit like 'don't do anything real bad to solve a problem' but in my opinion a system that can made unresponsive by a bunch of seemingly harmless user actions is worse than a system that kills them early.

comment How to store file attributes like permissions and timestamps and reapply them later on linux?
Yes, but I want to store the attributes alone. I use other tools to store the files, but they do not reliable store attributes. So I like to use something that is able to store attributes but don't neccessary the file contents.
