          Tip of the day - Quieten your Hard Disk with Vista ReadyBoost   
A lot has been written about the performance advantage of adding a memory card or usb stick to your Vista machine to make use of the ReadyBoost feature but one interesting side effect is that it can also reduce the amount of access needed to your hard disk and appear to make it quieter.

To quote the official Microsoft blurb:


The flash memory device serves as an additional memory cache—that is, memory that the computer can access much more quickly than it can access data on the hard drive. Windows ReadyBoost relies on the intelligent memory management of Windows SuperFetch and can significantly improve system responsiveness.


Now a lot of this data would normally be held on the hard disk and will need reading regularly, this can be the cause of the chuntering you can hear from lots of hard drives. Putting in a high-speed flash device can significantly reduce this. Obviously its not going to make the drive any quieter when it actually has to access data but it certainly has had avery beneficial effect where I have tried it.

Performance and a quieter life - two for the price of one :-)

Edit: I should point out that the cache is still written to disk so if you swap programs a lot it will still need to write out the changes and you will see less benefit in terms of noise. Q: Why does it still write to disk? A: Have you never pulled out a USB key by accident? The system need something to fall back on.

A Ripple Effect: 21st Century Innovations that Matter
Cheryl Lemke

Adolescent learning: peers, school, home, distributed resources, work, networked publics (a networked space where the public meets). —B. Barron, 2006

We need to create environments where we can work and learn peer-to-peer with our students because that is where they go to learn what interests them. Students need to see the value-added that the teacher offers.

94% of adolescents are involved in online gaming. —Pew

Multi-tasking is a myth. Our brains have an executive function that allows us to only think about things serially. Students, though, are faster than adults because they are younger (our brain processing speed peaks at between 20 and 30. When you move from one task to another, there is a slight delay and loss of time. There is, however, background tasking (e.g., listening to music). When students are engaged in difficult to cognitively process content, we should decrease the need for background tasking and multi-tasking. Drill and practice builds automaticity that leads to a greater ability to do background tasking while engaged in processing new content. Our students are giving us their “continuous partial attention” (Linda Stark).

http://www.positech.co.uk/democracy2/ : This is a game that allows users to try and keep a country alive. It considers elections, economics, etc.

If you grant students choice, on average, their grades will increase by a full grade.

On average there’s less than 10 seconds of sustained discussion in the average classroom. Instead, there is teach-talk followed by student-talk, followed by teacher-talk.

http://voicethread.com: This is a nice tool for working with video, stills, audio, and text/drawings.

http://flowingdata.com/: This is a tool that assists in visualizing data (e.g., Twitter posts about Obama during the Inaugeration, growth of Wal-Mart). http://gapminder.org is a similar program that allows you to track demographic features over time.

http://scratch.mit.edu/: This tool is good for teaching students about gaming and gaming environments from a design perspective.

Tammy’s Favorite Technology Tips, Tricks, and Tools

http://www.tammyworcester.com

  • http://vozme.com: Users type in text and the application reads it aloud.
  • http://vocaroo.com: Allows you to record your voice. It results in an embed code.
  • http://jamstudio.com: Allows users to very easily create music loops.
  • http://fur.ly: Allows you to shorten multiple URLs into one. This creates a website that would be great for creating webquests or smaller Delicious sites.
  • http://www.imaginationcubed.com: This is a free online basic version of KidPix. More than one individual can work on the whiteboard at a time and you can email the project to others. The email includes the real-time drawing, not just the finished product.
  • http://jing.com or http://skitch.com: Allows you to do screen captures and make edits (e.g., adding arrows and text). You can also record voice and screen changes (like with Snapz Pro X).
  • http://kickyoutube.com: Allows you to download YouTube videos for later use. Just add “kick” in the YouTube URL and choose (from the bar on the top) the format in which you want to download. Then, click the green “Download” button. Next, right-click over the “Down” button to download the video to your hard drive.
  • http://classtools.net (Random Name Picker): Picks a name from a list you provide. The application includes an embed code so you can have the program run whenever you wish to use it (e.g., from the class blog).
  • http://taggalaxy.com: Looks in Flickr to find any images relating to the tag you select. You could create your own tag and hen look at the image (a globe) with just your pictures.
  • Firefox Shortcuts: Use Apple-L to move to the URL bar. To create a shortcut, go to the search box for the website (e.g., Amazon) and right click and create a shortcut (e.g., type az twilight and it will look for

From Banned to Planned: Cell Phones in Schools
Hall Davidson

http://discoveryedspeakersbureau.com/node/119

Poll Everywhere
: Allows you to have students take a quick poll using their phones.

Suggestions for ways teachers are using cell phones in the classroom are avilable at http://k12cellphoneprojects.wikispaces.com another resource is http://www.cellphonesinlearning.com.

Voicethread
: A tool for creating projects like HyperStudio, but it allows you to add audio recorded directly from your cell phone.

Davidson suggests we rename "cell phones." In some countries they call it a hand phone and keitai ("a snug, intimate technosocial tethering"). Cell phones are different from other technologies because they are both input and output devices.

"Classroom management is less of an issues when engaged learning is taking place."

Qik: This site allows you to broadcast live from a cell phone. It will also allows you to embed code into blogs or Google Earth.

Shazam
: It allows you to hold-up your cell phone to a song and the phone can decode the name of the song.

Cell phones can read bar codes (bar code readers are freely available online) and they can create bar codes from text/pictures (QR code generators).

Amazon bought a company that does object recognition (e.g., you can take a picture of someone's shoes, send it to Amazon, and Amazon with offer it for purchase).

Davidson has placed Fatherlee's paperwork for using cell phones in the classroom on his website (see above). It includes a letter home to parents, instructions for designing cell-phone educational activities, and a tech-survey for parents to ensure students aren't being charged for their in-class work.
          Zuna vs iPod   
I have been engulfing myself with Zuna material over that last several months trying to get a clearer picture of actually what MS is planning on shipping. It looks smart with its WiFi connectivity instead of fumbling with cables and its gargantuan hard drive that will make 60 Gigs music players look like an IBM AT soon enough.

That being said the platform that will win will be the one that has the content. Apple has done a great job with iTunes and now the TV shows (something like 150 shows in their format). Microsoft did a good job with the gaming console but not enough to lure games like Metal Gear Solid and such huge titles away from Sony and thus Sony is still winning. Speaking of Sony though let's not mention why the heck they aren't in this battle ( Walkman ).

MS is going to have the better player at least until Apple has a chance to regroup and possibly leapfrog but their success lies in the hands of some Desperate Housewives. However, even Survivors will make money in this House (man!!! I couldn't resist but that is bad).

    Looks like almost all reviews a good for the WD TV HD but there are some bugs to keep it from perfect. once they release a really good firmware this will be a hard to beat player since it can do ALMOST everything you would want it to do. Seems there are two types now: with and w/o hard drive. those with HDD like the Mediagate or Popcorn hour are a good choice. those w/o hard drives like the WD TV, IOMEGA Screenplay are good too but you have to attach some sort of external usb storage anyway. So choose wisely. If you are looking for something that may be better than the WD TV, search for this: "Mediagate MG-M2TV". this is the newest player from Mediagate which can do everything the WD TV can but actually supports more formats like RMVB (real video) for many Asian videos. so this is one item i'm really looking forward to. anyone have it or link to good review? looks like it just came out.

                GONNA NEED A BIGGER HARD DRIVE:   
      Mixing Politics with Business: A Master List of Trump's Conflicts of Interest (Kate Brannen, June 30, 2017, just Security)

      Remember that giant pile of manila folders?

      They were stacked high at Donald Trump's press conference on Jan. 11. While no one was allowed to take a closer look at them, the unlabeled folders were said to contain the documents that Trump had signed in order to hand over control of his business to his two sons, Don Jr. and Eric.

      The move was supposed to free Trump of any conflicts of of interest as he became president, or at least give the appearance that he'd done that. Sheri Dillon, of the law firm Morgan Lewis, said at the January press conference that Trump had asked her firm to design a structure that would "completely isolate him from the management of the company." As part of this arrangement no new foreign deals would be made while Trump was president. New domestic deals would be allowed but would undergo vigorous vetting, according to Dillon. Trump would limit how much information about the business could be shared with him. And the Trump Organization, through its social media and marketing materials, would not refer to Trump as president.

      Dillon also addressed the Emoluments Clause in the Constitution, which is meant at a minimum to protect the American public from a foreign government being able to bribe the president. Dillon argued that it could not be construed to cover fair value goods or services, for example, paying one's bill at a Trump hotel. (Trump is now facing three Emoluments lawsuits that argue these kinds of payments represent exactly the kind of foreign payments that the Constitution sought to prohibit.) Despite asserting that foreign governments' spending money at Trump properties could not be considered an emolument, Dillon said Trump would voluntarily donate all profits made from foreign government payments to his hotels to the U.S. Treasury.

      This was the ethics plan that Trump laid out for himself and his family. It was meant to assure the public that Trump's private business interests would never overlap or influence his duties as president. His daughter, Ivanka, and her husband, Jared Kushner, made somewhat similar arrangements for themselves and their companies as they got ready to work in the White House. While all three distanced themselves to some degree from the companies and brands that carry their names, their financial stakes in the Trump and Kushner business empires remain the same. As for Trump's sons, they frequently attend White House events and remain very much a part of the political scene surrounding their father.

      It has become difficult to track these conflicts of interest stories as they often get drowned out by competing headlines. To help keep up, below is an attempt at a master list. It's not comprehensive, but it starts to paint a picture of the vast number of issues that require oversight and scrutiny during this presidency. If you see anything I've missed, please send it my way. 

                Sony KLV-W772E (43”) TV review   

      Sony TVs have always been a safe bet. They offer great picture quality, good design and an interesting user interface. Compared to other brands however, they also demand a higher price. This obviously doesn’t go well with the budget-conscious audience. To them, these add-ons aren’t value enough. Now Sony has something more to offer with the new KLV-W772E series. This is one of the few mid-range TVs that supports HDR (High Dynamic Range). It looks like Sony believes that HDR is a feature that everybody should be able to enjoy. The TV is available in 49 and 43-inch sizes. We have the smaller size, priced at Rs. 60,000. That’s still pretty high, but does it justify the price? Let’s find out.

      Design and interface

      Sony W772E_design

      The Sony KLV-W772E is a good-looking TV. It carries the trademark Sony design, which features a slim glossy bezel around the screen and a Sony logo at the bottom. It’s minimalistic yet it looks classy. There’s not much that can go wrong here. The design is subtle enough to blend into any room, without causing harm to its aesthetics. The TV manages to look good if you wall mount it or place it on a stand.

      Sony W772E_stand

      Cable clutter is easy to hide when you have the TV mounted on the wall, but it’s not the same on the stand. You can run all the cables through the stand, which makes the setup look clean and neat. Besides that, the stand offers a pretty sleek look. Its triangular shape accentuates the slim profile of the TV.

      Sony W772E_remote

      The ports are all the placed on the left side of the back panel. It’s a little struggle reaching them if you’ve mounted the TV on the wall. The remote isn’t that different to the ones that comes with other Sony TVs. The only thing different about it is that it has a YouTube button now, alongside the Netflix button to give quick access to the apps.

      Interface

      The KLV-W772E comes with smart features, but it doesn’t support Android. Instead, you get the same interface seen on Sony’s basic TVs with a few add-ons. Overall, the interface looks pretty clean and simple to navigate through. We prefer the simplicity here. Other smart TVs can be a little overwhelming for some people. The only bad thing about this model is that it’s a little sluggish, especially when opening web-based apps or going through the contents of a USB hard drive.

      There is no app store, so you can only use the apps that are pre-installed on the TV. There are only eight apps at the moment. More apps might be added later with the help of updates. The app selection isn’t that bad either. You get Netflix, YouTube, YouTube for Kids, a web browser and couple of other Sony entertainment apps. The only thing missing is Amazon Prime.

      Audio and video features

      The TV comes with a full HD (1920x1080) panel. That also makes it one of the first full HD TVs to support HDR. We’re not sure how relevant that is, as most of the HDR content available today is also in 4K resolution. Sony seems to think the trend might change though, which means you wouldn’t have to switch TVs when HDR becomes mainstream. For those who are unaware, HDR (High Dynamic Range) is a new technology in televisions which allows the TV to produce better contrast ratios and much natural looking colours. However HDR content must be played on a HDR-enabled TV to see the benefits.

      Sony has also included their X-Reality Pro engine which they claim offers smoother picture with rich details. Most of the channels we have in India are yet to move to the HD platform, so a good TV should also upscale lower resolutions well.

      Sony W772E_front

      The panel is an LCD one powered by Edge LED backlighting. Brightness levels are pretty good because of that. The TV also ends up being pretty energy efficient with a BEE (Bureau of Energy Efficiency) rating of four stars.

      You only get three picture modes to choose from - Standard, Vivid and Custom. The good thing is that you can actually set individual picture settings for every source. This means that you don’t have to change picture settings every time you jump from watching movies on the USB drive to the set-top-box. Apart from the usual picture settings, you also get a wide array of advanced settings that let you get the enhance picture quality with the help of built-in software. However, in most situations we didn’t really need them. Just setting contrast, brightness and colour was enough.

      Sony W772E_audio

      When it comes to audio, the TV is one up on most of its competition. It comes with a 14 watt subwoofer and 8 watt stereo speakers. The speakers are down-facing. You even get virtual surround support and a wide range of settings to play around with. With such a good built-in sound system, you don’t necessarily have to invest on external speakers to get a better audio.

      Connectivity features

      Connectivity is where things get a little disappointing. For starters, there are only two HDMI ports, which is too little. If you have more than two HD sources, then you have to go through the hassle of changing ports all the time. The only good thing about them is that you get support for HDMI ARC and HDMI CEC. The HDMI ARC port allows you to send digital audio back and forth to the home theatre, using only one cable. This mean that you can enjoy all your content in surround sound. On the other hand, with the help of CEC, you only need one remote to control the TV and the home theatre that is connected to it. This is now a pretty standard feature on most TVs.

      Speaking about audio, there is no Digital Audio out, which mean you have to depend on HDMI ARC port, if you want to enjoy surround sound. You only get the stereo RCA ports, which can be used to connect stereo speakers, a soundbar or even headphones.

      The two USB ports can be used to connect USB drives and play media content. You can watch videos, play music or display pictures. There is support for popular video formats. As expected, most of the HDR content we had also didn’t play on the TV because most of the HDR content available is in 4K resolution, which this TV does not support. The USB ports can also be used to connect USB powered keyboard. It’s a much better solution compared to the clunky virtual keyboard, if you are searching for YouTube video or signing in on apps.

      The TV supports Wi-Fi Direct, which can be used for streaming media content or screen mirroring. There was some delay especially while screen mirroring. It disconnected quite often while we were trying it.

      Performance  

      The first thing that we connected to the TV was our HD set-top-box in order to get a feel of its real-world performance. We saw the popular Kung Fu Panda Movie and liked the TV’s output. The picture looked vibrant. From a distance of 6 feet we were able to see the texture in Po’s fur very clearly. Even with the brightness set to 50 per cent, the TV managed to handle glare reasonably well in a bright lit room. Compared to other TVs, the picture looked pretty solid. Colours find a good balance between being vibrant and subtle. We did notice darker shades of red, blue and orange to look a bit over saturated. They stood out in certain scenes. We tried adjusting the colour settings, but weren’t able to tackle the problem without losing out on other colours.

      Watching Cricket on the Sony W772E was really enjoyable experience. Here, different shades of green across the field were brought out pretty well. The picture looked pretty smooth even with good texture seen on the grass. Overall, the picture looked pretty well-balanced.

      Sony W772E_picture quality

      That said, it’s only the Blu-ray movies that give you a true idea of the TV’s picture quality. We played Terrence Malik’s ‘Tree of Life’. The movie’s exceptionally good cinematography was enough to sum up the TV’s performance for us. The fifteen minute ‘Creation sequence’, dabbles through a variety of beautiful shots that looked great.

      One of the first things we noticed are the amazing contrast ratios. They’re hands down the best quality of the picture. It’s noticeable right from the start of the sequence, where the bright red gaseous clouds are outlined by the blankness of space. The black levels here are pretty deep, but they do not overshadow the fine details. It’s a little over whelming to see how smoothly the TV transitions between the darker and the brighter parts of the screen.

      What we see is the sort of extreme detail it has to offer, bundled together with the subtle mix of colours. It results in a very natural looking picture that we really like. Even the skin tones looked pretty nice. We didn’t really have to tinker with the colour temperature to get the right tone.

      The only area where the Sony KLV-W772E struggles is with motion. Slow panning shots looked a little glitchy. With high-action packed sequence in ‘Pirates of Caribbean: On Stranger Tides’, the image looked hazy. We switched on the Motion flow feature, but that seemed to have little to no effect on the picture. The stuttering is not very prominent from a distance, but if you’re sitting close to the TV, it’s a little hard to miss.

      The audio was pretty good. It’s certainly loud enough for big rooms. But what we like more is the depth added by the subwoofer. Thanks to it, the audio doesn’t sound hollow, like it does on most TV speakers. Even the surround sound feature performs really well.

      However, the Surround Sound feature works best when you’re using the TV in a small room. One of the drawbacks is that even the dialogues that are usually meant for the centre channel, are thrown wide. This makes them a little less audible. We did use the Volume Zoom feature to overcome the problem, but it made the background score a lot louder than the dialogues. We actually had to reduce the Surround sound effect here to get the right sound.


                Dell Inspiron 15 7560 review   

      Dell’s high-end laptops have always been praised for their looks and build quality. A good example of this is the XPS 13, which was a trend setter in the ultrabook segment, with its thin bezel and golden chassis. Now Dell seems to have brought a similar spin to their Inspiron series. We believe it is a good time for Dell to do that too. Inspiron laptops have always been closely associated with performance and value. There wasn’t much innovation in the design area, until now.

      The new Dell Inspiron 7560 is one of the most stunning notebooks we’ve seen. It looks classy, portable and carries top-of-the line hardware, something we all want and expect from our notebooks. However, with all of that, they also demand a premium price, specifically Rs. 80,999*. It’s certainly a high price to pay. We want to find out if you’re paying such a high price to also get a good performance, or just the fancy shell it comes in. Let’s find out.

       Design and Build

      The Dell Inspiron 7560 certainly stands out when compared to other notebooks. With the lid shut, it’s actually hard to believe that it features a 15.6-inch screen. You don’t necessarily need a big bulky bag to carry it. It is however a little heavier than it looks, at 2kg. The outer shell features brushed aluminum, giving the laptop a premium and solid feel all around. The sharp-cut corners and sleek edges make the laptop look pretty bold. Our test unit was a silver one, but you can also buy the laptop in fancy gold.

      Dell Inspiron_centre

      On the inside, Dell has traded in style for functionality. The first thing you notice when you open the lid is the extremely slim bezel around the screen. Dell likes to call it the Infinite Edge Display and that’s a big reason why the laptop manages to have a smaller footprint than other notebooks. Besides that, you also notice the immersive experience it has to offer the moment you turn on the laptop.

      Dell Inspiron_screen

      The thin bezel is also responsible for a few other design changes. Because there is no space at the top, the webcam is moved to the bottom of screen. The move is understandable, but it isn’t implemented well. The angle of the camera too depends on how far back or front you tilt the screen. With the laptop placed on the lap, you need to push the hinge all the way back to get your whole face in the frame.

      The smaller footprint also means you don’t get a numerical pad. However, the keyboard deck looks roomy because of that. There’s plenty of space on either side of the keyboard and even around the trackpad for your palms to rest on. Keys have a good amount of spacing between them. In the start, the keys feel a little too far apart. However once you get used to them, you get better accuracy. There isn’t a lot of travel on them. In fact, they felt a little rigid in the start and they get softer as you use them more. Best thing about the keyboard though is that it's backlit.

      Dell Inspiron_keyboard

      The soft rubber-like material on the deck feels comfortable, but what’s irritating are the sharp edges of the metal chassis that outline it. Long typing sessions resulted in some marks on both our wrists. We constantly had to keep taking breaks to give them rest. This depends on how you’re sitting and at what incline.

      Dell Inspiron_design1

      The track pad is a pretty big and very responsive. Multi-finger gestures work well. Almost all the ports are place on the left, except for a USB port and the SD card slot. The vents are placed at the top-end of the keyboard, so you can’t see them, while the speakers are placed at the bottom.

      Hardware and software

      It’s quite impressive to see that Dell hasn’t compromised much on the hardware, even while working with such a compact build. You still get a graphics card in the form of the NVIDIA GeForce 940MX. It isn’t exactly high-end, but you can still run new game titles but at lower quality settings though. The graphics card is still capable of running video editing software, without much trouble.

      Dell Inspiron_side

      Besides that, you get a 7th generation Intel Core i7 7500U processor running with 8GB of RAM, which is pretty good. There is a 1TB hard drive but what we’re more excited about is the additional 128GB SSD. The operating system is loaded on it, so we’re expecting a snappy Windows 10 experience right from the get go. The battery is not a detachable one. It’s a little less than what we expected, but with the efficiency of the Core i7 processor, it just might be satisfactory. We’ll find out more a little later.

      On the connectivity front you get everything that you pay for (almost). There is an HDMI port, two USB 3.0 ports and one USB 2.0. You get a SD card slot, headphone jack and even a LAN port. It would’ve been nice if it also came with a Type C port, as they are becoming popular. However you still get a Wi-Fi AC and Bluetooth 4.1, for faster wireless connectivity. The camera can also shoot videos in 720p.

      You get Windows 10 right out of the box. There’s plenty of bloatware included in the form of basic games and software. A good number of Dell’s proprietary apps are also present. Among them is a Power Manager which helps you monitor the battery performance and even customize a few of its features including when it should stop charging when connected to the charger.

      There are plenty of Microsoft apps included too. You actually get a year’s free subscription to Office, which is good to have. Also included is their 3D software called 3D Builder. Cortana comes right-out-the-box with Windows 10, but you do have to sign in to make the most of it.

      Infinity Edge Display

      The screen comes with a full HD resolution. We rescaled apps to match the resolution and liked the experience here. Running apps alongside each other looked really good. The slim bezel certainly helps makes the experience much more intriguing. It was possible to read articles, without squinting. The output is really sharp and it reflects with videos, photos or just plain text.

      Dell Inspiron_TEXT

      Naturally, videos and games also look pretty immersive on the laptop, thanks to near-bezel-less screen. There are some drawbacks though. Colors don’t look very saturated. As a result, some videos we played looked dull, losing out a little on the sharpness. The other problem are the blacks. Although they are pretty deep, they hide a lot of detail in a frame, even with the brightness set to high. It only gets worse because of the glare on the screen caused by the light around. The viewing angles are also pretty poor.

      Dell Inspiron_MOVIE

      Don’t get us wrong, the screen is not bad but when compared to other notebooks it’s not as good as we expected it to be. This is disheartening because you’re paying quite a premium price for it.

       Performance

      Performance is one place where you clearly see the return on your money. Plenty of credit here goes to the SSD. The operating system is loaded on the SSD, so the laptop boots up in just a few seconds. Basic applications like web browsing and Microsoft Office are handled very easily. Opening and closing applications is a matter of split-seconds. The SSD also offers great read and write speeds. It was able to copy a 1GB file from the hard drive to the SSD, in just a matter of 5 seconds.

      Dell Inspiron_multi-tasking

      Multi-tasking is also quite manageable on the laptop. We created three virtual desktops running multiple applications including games, Netflix, Chrome and the laptop still managed to run pretty smoothly. It did heat up to some extent, but this was only prominent near the vent. You don’t experience it anywhere on the keyboard deck, so it doesn’t affect the user that much.

      game

      For our game performance test, we loaded Dirt Rally on the laptop. The game looks pretty good and we were actually able to run the game at high quality settings, although not perfectly. The game does stutter at this quality and so did the audio. The built-in benchmark ran the game at about 25 fps, which isn’t that good. However, at medium quality, the performance gets a lot smoother.

      Dell Inspiron_Dirt Rally

      We ran a couple of other benchmarks on the laptop too. The 3D Mark test score was exactly as expected. The laptop scored 2595 points, which as shown is better than the average notebook, but not good enough to be called a gaming laptop.

      Dell Inspiron_3D mark

      In the CrystalDiskMark test, the SSDs was able to let the Inspiron score about five times more the average notebook, with a good write speed of 231 MB/s and a read speed 543 MB/s.

      Dell Inspiron_CrystalDiskMark

      Battery performance is a little disappointing. We got a total of 3 hours on the laptop with moderate use. This included few hours of web browsing, using Word, watching videos on YouTube for half an hour and playing games for another half an hour. The laptop also charged pretty slowly.

      The built-in speaker is reasonably loud, but they don’t sound really good. While playing a movie on Netflix, the dialogues were barely audible. You have to sit very close to the laptop to hear them. With the hollow sound they offer, we would hardly recommend playing music on them.

                Ukraine Cyberattack Wasn't Really About Ransom, Security Experts Say   
      A deeper look at the virus that struck computers in Ukraine and elsewhere this week has shown that what initially looked like ransomware was in fact a type of malware called a "wiper." Rather than extorting money, it's goal was to erase victims' hard drives, disrupt their business and misdirect suspicions about the attacker's identity, according to The Washington Post and other media reports. Victims of the cyberattack saw a screen asking them to pay $300 in bitcoin for a key to unlock their computer – the same ploy used by the WannaCry ransomware that hit computers in more than 150 countries in May . But security experts say this attack was different. "It definitely wasn't ransomware and wasn't financially motivated," Jake Williams, founder of cybersecurity firm Rendition Infosec, tells the Post . "The goal was to cause disruption in computer networks." Likewise, Matt Suiche, founder of cybersecurity firm Comae Technologies, writes on his website , "The goal of a wiper is to destroy

      In September we spent two weeks with five cameras and two sleeping bags in Tenerife to explore the island abroad from all the tourism hotspots, focussing on its nature and lost places.
      In 10 days we slept several nights beneath one of the most breathtaking night skies there are in the whole world, visited ghost town, a forgotten village which used to be a leper colony until it was abandoned, and found a lost hotel, which's construction was suddenly stopped in the 70s because the owner was unknown.
      We gathered 42.187 shots which kept us over 240 hours busy in post production and take up 1,12 Terra bytes of our hard drives.

                How to downgrade from macOS High Sierra back to macOS Sierra   
      If you decide the macOS High Sierra beta just isn't working for you, you can downgrade back to Sierra. The public beta for macOS High Sierra is here — but just because you take a new operating system for a whirl doesn't mean you're ready to commit full-time just yet. If you've decided you'd rather return to macOS Sierra, you can downgrade with just a few steps. It is a bit of a complex process, but if you follow the steps you'll be back to your old setup in no time. Note: If you are reading this article on the Mac that you want to downgrade on, switch to another device or print this page before continuing so you can read along as you go. Step 1: Back up your Mac Step 2: Create a bootable drive of macOS Sierra Step 3: Erase macOS High Sierra Step 4: Reinstall macOS Sierra Step 5: Restore data from an earlier macOS Sierra Time machine backup Step 1: Back up your Mac This process will erase macOS High Sierra from your hard drive entirely.

                How to create a partition on your Mac to test High Sierra   
      You can partition your Mac and boot another operating system alongside your current one. If you've always wanted to partition your Mac's hard drive so you can run a separate operating system — including macOS High Sierra — in tandem with your current one, it's surprisingly easy to do so thanks to Apple's built-in disk utility program. Here's how to partition your Mac. What is a disk partition? Partitioning your Mac is basically splitting your hard drive into separate, usable systems. It makes it possible to run two separate operating systems on one device, like Windows and macOS, and even the macOS High Sierra beta. Note: If you want to run Windows on your Mac, Apple's Boot Camp assistant will automatically make a partition for you. Here's how to install Windows. It is important to note that partitioning your hard drive also splits up your available hard drive space. Each partition will take up a portion of your usable storage. So, if you are running low on stor...
                How to make a bootable Sierra installer drive in case you want to downgrade from macOS High Sierra   
      macOS High Sierra is a working beta, but what if you want to keep a copy of macOS Sierra, too? If you are preparing to test out macOS High Sierra, there is one additional set of steps you should follow. You should download a bootable copy of macOS Sierra. This allows you to use it if you partition your hard drive for dual-software installation. It is also the only way to downgrade to the older format if you decide you don't like macOS High Sierra at all. Before you start How to format your external drive for Mac How to make your external drive bootable for Sierra How to use Sierra with a bootable drive Before you start Before you get started, make sure you have a thumb drive with at least 8GB of storage, or a spare external hard drive (one that you don't use with anything else). You'll also need to download macOS Sierra from the Mac App Store. Note: After macOS Sierra has downloaded, it will automatically begin the installation process. Close the installer instead. Please, P...
                Podcast357: Options for Saving and Trimming Online Video to Your Local Hard Drive   
      This podcast is a recording of an unconference session at the Learning 2.010 Conference in Shanghai, China, on September 18, 2010. The focus of our session was different techniques for saving online videos from websites like YouTube, Vimeo, etc. to your local computer's hard drive. This skill is important for teachers and librarians wanting to integrate the use of online videos in class with students for several reasons. First of all, in locations like China and many U.S. schools, video sharing websites like YouTube and Vimeo are blocked by content filters. In order to access these websites in these locations, for instance, a VPN service or proxy service must be used. Teachers in U.S. schools which block video sharing sites may need to download videos at home and bring them to school. In addition to exploring different free techniques for downloading "offline" versions of online videos from sites like YouTube, I explained how to use the software MPEG Streamclip to convert downloaded FLV (Flash format) files into other formats which play in media players like QuickTime and Windows Media Player. I also explained how to use MPEG Streamclip to "trim" video clips into shorter versions, which can then be exported and shared in class with students. I turned the recorder on about 10 minutes after our session began, so the longer explanation of using UnPlug for Firefox is not included in this recording. Please refer to the podcast shownotes for links to all reference resources in this podcast.

      The evolution of RSS aggregators will be more important than the blog tools we use, I predict.

      Talking about RSS aggregators -- which one do you like the best?.

      Onfolio recently released its Onfolio 2.0 Release Candidate. For new news aggregator users, this is my second recommendation after Bloglines. Bloglines is easier, but Onfolio is much more powerful and, because it stores everything on your hard drive, opens up new scenarios (like you can read and search your feeds even when on a plane unconnected from the Internet).

      If you are still looking for an RSS News Aggregator, this is certainly one you should try.

      Real quick refresher course:

      There are three basic types of RSS News Aggregators:

      1) Server-based aggregators. Some, like Newsgator cross the lines since Newsgator has a server-side service too. Other server-side aggregators are Feeds.scripting.com, MyYahoo, Bloglines, and MyMSN.

      2) Standalone client-side aggregators. RSS Bandit. FeedDemon. SharpReader. Radio UserLand. Among these, my favorites are RSS Bandit and FeedDemon. You'll need to download and install these. They don't depend on any other application being loaded, and are browser-independent too (for the most part). On the Mac, NetNewsWire is the one most of my friends like.

      3) Built in the browser. OnFolio 2.0 adds onto IE or Firefox. Optimal Access adds onto IE. The Mozilla team offers Sage for Firefox users. Pluck adds onto any browser. My favorite here is OnFolio. Pluck is pretty good too.

      4) Dependent on Outlook. NewsGator is my favorite here (it's still the aggregator I use most), but there's also IntraVnews.

      Do you have an aggregator you like more than any of those listed? Which aggregator do you like the best? Let me know.

                How to fix xbox 360 FREE   
      Is It Possible To Repair My Xbox 360 For Free?

      The Xbox 360 is by no means a cheap item to buy. For this reason it is understandable to be frustrated when the machine craps out on you. No one wants to pay to have it repaired after spending so much to purchase it in the first place. The question that often comes up is “can I repair my Xbox 360 for free?”

      When asking the question “can I repair my Xbox 360 for free,” you are going to find that there are a few possible solutions that can help solve your dilemma. The first technique to try out is to unplug the power. Once doing this you are going to want to remove the hard drive and plug in your game console. After plugging in your game console, press the power button and hope that has solved your problems. If it is working, shut the power off and hook your hard drive back in and get back to playing your game.

      The second thing you can do is to remove all of the cables plugged into the console. You want to start by unplugging your Xbox 360 and removing the hard drive. Next, remove all of the cables including the video. From there, plug in the console and start it back up to see if it worked. Unfortunately, you have a more serious problem on your hands if neither of the first two techniques worked.

      At this point you are probably wondering if it is still possible to “repair my Xbox 360 for free.” Before getting even more frustrated, first check to see if your system is still covered by the extended warranty. Microsoft has extended the warranty support to accommodate you and the many other owners who have experienced some kind of problems.

      There are a number of problems your Xbox 360 may be experiencing, but overheating is certainly the most common problem. Because of this, it is important you check to make sure your console is getting enough ventilation. After making sure it has enough air circulation, blow all of the vents out with compressed air.

      The last tip is to open up the machine on your own and follow instructions that you can find online. Just keep in mind that repairing your Xbox 360 on your own, you are voiding any warranties. Although it is risky, it can save you $150 for Microsoft to repair it and ship it back out to you weeks later. This is a decision you will need to make when deciding whether or not it is worth it to “repair my Xbox 360” for free.

                Storage Spaces hard drive SMART information   
      Is there any way to get SMART hard disk information about hard drives in a storage spaces mirror?

      The drives can't be individually addressed with a drive letter in Windows, so most software doesn't even know they exist. Most just see the virtual drive.

                Kristof Willen: Millenium Falcon   
      Hardware

      My old netbook is currently seven years old, and shows its age : boot times up to two minutes, working in Chrome was a drag and took ages. And I'm not even talking about performing updates. All to blame on the slow CPU (never again an Atom !) and the slow hard drive. The last two occasions I used the laptop was on Config Management Days and Red Hat summit, and I can tell you the experience was unpleasant. So a new laptop was needed.

      Luckily, the laptop market has reinvented itself after it collapsed during the tablet rise. Ultrabooks are now super slim, super light and extremely powerful. My new laptop needed to be :

      • fast : no Celeron or Atom chip was allowed. An i5 as minimum CPU
      • beautifull : I need a companion to my vanity. No plasticky stuff, well build and good quality.
      • well supportive for Linux : Linux would be installed, so the hardware needed to be supported
      • reasonable cheap : speaks for itself; a lot of nice ultrabooks are available, but I didn't want to pay an arm and a leg.
      • light and small : I carry this everywhere around the world, so the laptop shouldn't weigh more than 1.4kg

      Soon, I saw 2 main candidates : first, the Dell XPS13 still is regarded as ultrabook king. It supports Linux nicely, and has that beautiful Infinity display. Disadvantages were that it was on the heavy side, and I wasn't fan of its design either. And a tad on the expensive side as well. On the other side, there was the Asus Zenbook 3 (UX390) which was stunningly beautiful, had a nice screen as well and was extremely light with its 0.9 kg.

      However, I saw the silver variant in the shop, but found it a bit on the small side. So when I saw its 14 inch brother, UX430UQ, I was immediately sold. This is a 14 inch laptop - it is advertised as a 13inch laptop with a 14 inch screen, but don't believe that - which is as light as 1.25 kg, has a nice dark grey metal spun outerior and excellent keyboard and screen. Equipped with an i7 CPU and 16GB of RAM, it doesn't fail to deliver on the performance field. Shame that Asus doesn't provide a sleeve with this laptop, as it does with the UX390. Also, important, it doesn't has a safe lock hole, so don't leave this baby unattended.

      I wiped the Windows 10 and booted the Fedora netinstall CD, but it seemed that both WiFi and trackpad were unsupported. I lost quite some time with this, but eventually decided to boot it with the Fedora LiveCD, to find out all was working out of the box. Probably the netinstall CD uses an older kernel. I baptised the laptop Millenium Falcon, as I switched to spaceship names on my hardware lately.

In charge to shrink the hazard of you getting infected, it is essential to stare at how spyware gets on your apparatus and what you can do almost it.First off, the peak prevailing way of unhealthiness is finished show downloads.

                Comment on Moving Apple System Photo Library to an External SSD is Terrifying by Lynn   
      Thank you, Thank you for this informative article! I bought a T3 for the same purpose and am getting same messages. I, too, have a laptop and didn't realize that every time I dismount the T3 and re-connect it, I will have to wait another couple of days to have access to my photos as Photos goes thru the above-mentioned process EACH time if I'm understanding you correctly? Hmmm ... well, you are right, I don't think I'll like that as a permanent solution either, to have the T3 hanging off of the laptop all of the time. However, I only have 20GB free on my laptop's 500GB hard drive, so thinking I'll go ahead and move Photos to the T3 as a stopgap solution. I have a lot of cruft I can clean out of the computer I'm sure, but this will be the quickest way to free up space and hopefully give me some breathing room until I can get other things deleted, etc. I've just started going paperless, so I have a lot more to store digitally all of the sudden. I'm going to re-think how much I _really_ need to keep though. Perhaps I won't have to scan in as much as I'm doing now. I've always been a _just-in-case_ saver, but realizing that may not be the best strategy when it comes to digital space. Thanks again!

                Ukraine Cyberattack Wasn't Really About Ransom, Security Experts Say   
      A deeper look at the virus that struck computers in Ukraine and elsewhere this week has shown that what initially looked like ransomware was in fact a type of malware called a "wiper." Rather than extorting money, it's goal was to erase victims' hard drives, disrupt their business and misdirect suspicions about the attacker's identity, according to The Washington Post and other media reports. Victims of the cyberattack saw a screen asking them to pay $300 in bitcoin for a key to unlock their computer – the same ploy used by the WannaCry ransomware that hit computers in more than 150 countries in May . But security experts say this attack was different. "It definitely wasn't ransomware and wasn't financially motivated," Jake Williams, founder of cybersecurity firm Rendition Infosec, tells the Post . "The goal was to cause disruption in computer networks." Likewise, Matt Suiche, founder of cybersecurity firm Comae Technologies, writes on his website , "The goal of a wiper is to destroy

                How to Handle Hard Drive Failure   
      Hard drive failure is one thing that a computer owner or user will have to face. Because of its mechanical nature, it's bound to just stop working one day, and it's just a matter of when. No matter how long your hard drive has been in use, you can never rule out the possibility that it can one day just quit on you. To prolong the life of your hard drive, it's important to know what causes the failure, recognize the symptoms of a failing drive, and what you can do to help prevent it.

      A hard drive that's been making ticking and grinding noises for a few days now is a likely candidate for failure. When you add strange noises to that mechanical clicking, you can be sure trouble is quite near your digital paradise. If you haven't done any backup of the data stored in your computer yet, there's no time to waste. Backup your files immediately. And if your OS is also located in that drive, it would be a good idea to transfer it to another location to prevent it from crashing as well.

      However, do not even think about fixing the problem yourself. Some computer users think that they may be able to correct whatever is wrong with the system if they open the drive. This is true for old hard drives and even new ones which you may think would be easy to "fix." Not so. Opening a hard drive without the proper tools and facilities would only worsen the situation. Hard drives are assembled in clean rooms and are therefore susceptible to damage even by the smallest microscopic particle. If you open the case by yourself, you are making the repair more difficult.

      If you have been backing up your data regularly, then you may not have a big issue. Many people use online backup services, like MozyHome backup, to keep their data safe. You simply need to replace the drive and put the data back on. But if you don't have backups of the data, you don't need to panic. There are specialists who may be able to recover what is on the drive. Be aware that this is not a cheap process, nor can it happen overnight. It requires a clean room, specialized tools and a very knowledgeable person. And even they may not be able to recover everything you had on the drive.

      If you are ever tempted to try the home remedies that are said to work with damaged hard drives, stop. For one, don't freeze your hard drive. That "solution" has no basis whatsoever and can only exacerbate the problem. The same can be said about troubleshooting it yourself. If your hard drive suddenly stops, your best course of action is to send it off to a technician that specializes on data retrieval. Typically, these hard drives will no longer be functional again. But purchasing a new hard drive is actually a minor problem than the thought of losing one's important files, personal documents, music collection, family recipes, and treasured photos altogether. Make sure this never happens to you by backing up your computer data.
                The High Cost of Hard Drive Data Recovery   
      Almost everyone has had to deal with a hard drive failure and most of those people have had experience with hard drive data recovery. A hard drive failing is one of the worst things any computer user can experience. Until, that is, they see what it can cost to recover their data. Depending on the damage done to the drive, the cost can be hundreds to thousands of dollars. Just for a single drive. But there is a reason this process is so expensive. It is not simply because computer people get paid a huge hourly rate. What is required to restore the data on a hard drive is extremely intensive.

      The kind of damage done to the drive is the first factor which makes up a costly repair. In cases of corrupted data due to a virus, the recovery process is much simpler. Because the hard drive remains mechanically sound, getting it running again and ready for use is easy. The only major problem that you need to face in this type of failure is that some operating systems do not have the ability to read corrupt data. However, a professional can break the date down into its binary form and reconstruct it into a useable format which can be read by the OS. Such process is cheaper and simpler to fix than a mechanical failure.

      A computer has only two moving parts - the fans, and the hard drive, which is a major component. Because of its sensitive nature, the hard drive breaking down is not an uncommon event, and when it does, finding a replacement is not easy. First, there's the matter of finding a part that matches exactly. It's not like recovery technicians have a bunch of hard drive replacements around just waiting for the next case. A replacement part must be so similarly matched to the defective one that it might as well have been made at the same factory at the same period. Pinning down that suitable replacement can take time and effort, and therefore, money.

      The most expensive aspect about recovering the data from a damaged drive is actually getting the drive up and running. Rebuilding corrupted data can be fairly simple and much cheaper. But if your drive was damaged because the drive was opened or from water or heat you will be looking at a much larger bill. In general, the size of the drive or number of files to be recovered has an impact on the price as well if the data has to be rebuilt.

      Obviously, the cheapest thing you can do is to prevent all these problems from occurring in the first place. While even the hardiest drive will eventually fail after prolonged use, you can backup often enough that you will only have to worry about replacing the drive, not the data. Take advantage of an online backup service and ensure that you never have to deal with the pains of data recovery.
                What Usually Causes Hard Disk Failure?   
      It's always difficult having to deal with a failed drive, and knowing the causes of hard disk failure may help you avoid one. If you don't know what may be bringing about the ticking noises that you get from your hard drive, chances are you will be rushing to backup your data when it starts up again. And while its always a good idea to take advantages of the services of the best online backup systems, an online "hard drive" is no replacement for a real one. Dealing with a dying hard drive can be stressful especially when you have a lot of files in it, so knowing the causes of one and how to prevent it can help you keep your data safe from potential loss.

      One of the most common causes of a hard drive failure is physical trauma. Hard drives are very delicate. Each piece inside is built with a micron of space in between them, making it easily damaged or scratched. For instance, computers under your desks can be easily bumped or kicked. Placing your hard drives right next to your loud subwoofers can cause vibrations. Often times, poor hard drives get smacked by frustrated users. It is very important that you keep your computer in a safe place away from physical abuses.

      Another common cause of hard drive disk failure is overheating. While yes, the current computers that we have are capable of doing a wide range of incredible things, they also require a large amount of heat in exchange. Some units can easily cool down by turning down their settings or turning up your air conditioners or fans; however, some layout problems inside your computer can cause further problems. A lot of pre-built computers are laid out fine but then if you want to save money and assemble a unit on your own, there are a few important things to keep in mind. First, you should install fans to ensure a good airflow within your computer. Installing exhaust fans let out hot air and force cool air to the bottom. Heat does not only pose risks to your hard drive but also to the other parts of your computer.

      Keeping your computers in cool storage can help prevent electrical surge. Getting a surge protector for your computer is crucial. A small electrical surge can cause your unit to short circuit. Avoid plugging your computer directly into your wall. Lastly, be sure that your surge protector is tough enough to give your computer the protection it needs against a big surge. Otherwise, it serves no purpose.

      There are numerous reasons that a hard drive can fail. These are just three of those reasons, but they are among the most common. If you take care of your drive, you shouldn't have to worry about that strange noise that you get when your hard drive plays its death knell. By listening to your hard drive and taking care of it properly, you can extend its life indefinitely.
                The Best Online Backup Services - What Do They Offer?   
      You may not realize this now but the best online backup services can actually help you a lot. Whether you are a student dealing with schoolwork, or just your average user with a decent volume of files, photos, and personal documents in your hard drive, using online backup solutions is still applicable to you. Other than keeping your data secure in a location that isn't susceptible to theft or damage caused by various disasters, backup services also protect them from falling into the wrong hands. But finding the best online backup services is crucial for you to get all the advantages of this backup method.

      First is the price. Most online backup services are priced about the same, around $5 per month, which you can opt to pay monthly or at the discounted annual fee. But that's just for the basic service. You can also avail of other additional services like network backup for an added fee. On the other hand, there are also online backup services that come for free, for some companies on a limited trial basis, and for others, for a limited storage capacity. While these offers are not uncommon and are done for promotional purposes, be wary of those backup services that are offered at no cost at all. While they need not cost a lot, the online backup solutions shouldn't come totally free or you would wonder how the company can give service.

      Getting immediate access to your files may not really be extremely important to you. For instance, if you are simply looking for a space to store your photos in, you do not always need them at a moment's notice. Nevertheless, if you are a student or a businessman, you need a service which does not ask you to wait for a day before you can retrieve your files. Different companies provide different levels of access to the files that you store - which is why getting one which perfectly suits your needs is highly important.

      And then you also have to think about the actual software that you'd need to install on your computer. Is it user-friendly enough for you? Would you have to deal with a lot of technical stuff that you're not comfortable with. Most backup software are designed to be as simple and convenient as possible for the user but you'd need to find out which you would be most happy to work with. Remember that online backups are there to make backing up your data easier without having to go through hoops for it. The best online backup services make sure you get that.

      Lastly, you need a secure service. Most companies offer encryption of your stored information as it travels between your computer and theirs. However, some companies can offer more than that. You can find companies which scatter your files across their services making it impossible for any outsider to decipher any important data. You may also choose to put a password on your files. All these added services work together to give you the top-level security that you need. But to make sure that a service is right for your needs, just read a few reviews, like the Carbonite backup review.
                Why Backup Your Computer Files?   
      You may not think you have a good reason to backup your computer information. You're not a bank protecting thousands of customers from losing their financial information, nor are you a government body storing personal data for millions of people. But that doesn't mean that the pictures and e-mails and recipes on your drive aren't priceless. To you, they hold memories perhaps of an entire lifetime. While losing those things may not impact anyone but you, you owe it to yourself to protect the things that you love. Protecting your computer's files is a necessity in the digital age when so many people keep so much of themselves on their computer.

      Some have kept certain files for years. And this was always done in the same old process. First, you buy a stack of floppy disks or CDs which can be costly. You organize your files in such a way that everything in one category would fit into the disk space. Then, you label each disk before finally storing the information - which usually takes lots of space and hours of time. In storing your files, you need to be extra careful since a few scratches or a several drops of water could be enough to erase all your hard work and stored data. You may buy a protective safe for your disks but this would mean additional expenses on your part.

      It's a good thing that recent developments in technology have given way to better methods when it comes to data backups and storage. External hard drives are already available that allow you to just plug and backup. It has become as simple as that. And your files are organized exactly the way they were in your computer's hard drive so the process should only take a few minutes of your time. External hard drives also let you store so much data -- up to several terabytes. For many who don't have an idea how big a terabyte is, one terabyte can hold up to 200,000 photos at 5MB each.

      However, not everybody is open to buying a new and costly hard drive. Yes, it offers comfort to most people since it allows you to keep all of your files at your reach, but hard drives can also be daunting to some people.

      For these types of computer users, a good option for ensuring that your data is safe from all possible causes of data loss would be to avail of online backup services being offered by many companies, one example of which is Carbonite backup. With this backup method, you don't need to be a techie because most of these online storage solutions are very user-friendly. And, you get the guarantee that your data is being kept away from prying eyes using advanced encryption technology and stored in servers located in a protected area.
                Your PC Acting Up? Here's How To Prevent Computer Crashes   
      Some people may think that avoiding computer failure is not possible but on the contrary there are actually steps on how to prevent computer crashes. In a few cases where it is not, such as cases of failed hard drives, there are certain ways which can be done to minimize the damage they can do. Nevertheless, as a computer owner, it is your responsibility to take good care of your computer's health. By being mindful of a few preventive methods, you can make sure that your computer unit will function faster, better and longer.

      The first step in computer crash prevention is proper maintenance. A well-maintained car isn't likely to just quit. In the same way, a well-maintained computer will be more reliable. And when there is a problem, you will be more likely to identify it before it worsens. Proper computer maintenance doesn't just mean cleaning the dust out of the case every month. You also need to run scan disk and defrag programs about every month. You should run a registry cleaner just as often, if not more often. These programs are simple to use and will keep your computer running as smoothly as it can.

      The second step is to be alert and observant. Note that your computer can run diagnostics on its own. When this happens, it is very important that you pay attention when the computer starts up. It is also vital that you are aware of the different signs of bad RAM or of a hard drive gone bad. If your computer lacks memory, it could be that something may be wrong with the RAM stick. On the other hand, if your drive keeps on clicking or buzzing, back up all important data as soon as possible. By learning how to tell visual and auditory hints of hardware failure, you can keep yourself prepared in case something goes awry.

      An important aspect of knowing how to prevent computer crashes is protecting it from outside elements that can damage it. This can encompass a number of things. One is placing your PC in a well-ventilated area to avoid overheating. Another protective measure is positioning it such that parts of your unit like the CPU, will not be easily kicked or hit. Even seemingly minor bumps can lead to major damage. Further, make sure that you secure your unit from power fluctuations by using a surge protector, or you risk damage to your motherboard. Use a reliable and updated anti-virus protection that can keep any the risk of viruses at bay, especially when you browse or surf the internet often.

      By learning to recognize the signs of a possible failure, you can potentially prevent one from occurring. But even if you cannot prevent it, you will at least be able to keep a backup of all your data by using today's best online backup services so that an inevitable crash does not cause you undue frustration. Obviously, the biggest step is prevention. Proper maintenance and protection for your computer are essential to maintaining a long and healthy life. When looking for how to prevent computer crashes, always keep these simple, yet effective, steps in mind.
                Tell Me, Why Does My Computer Crash?   
      I'm sure that for even once in your life you have shouted in exasperation "Why does my computer crash just when I need it most?" It's not an uncommon scenario for many of us -- you've papers to complete, deadlines to beat and suddenly your computer quits just like that. Here's a thought worth mulling over: it could be that your computer crashed simply because you used it so much. Like people, computers also crack under pressure. While it is extremely frustrating having to deal with it, it is also worth knowing why so you can keep it from happening again.

      To keep this from happening to you, it's important that you know how to establish the cause of failure. This may seem difficult to do in the face of a crashed computer. Keep in mind though that every computer figure has its signals which can help you get to the heart of the matter. Determining the cause of the crash can give you the chance to prevent it from happening.

      When a computer is used to the very limits of its capability, it undergoes physical stress, and heat is one of these stresses. When a computer has been working for too long in an area with poor ventilation, the unit can overheat and just shut off. For some fortunate users, a computer may simply shut down as a form of preventative measure and you just need to give it time to release the heat before turning it back up. Sadly though, a computer that experiences overheating can also end up with a failed hard drive, in which case, you would need to find a hard drive replacement. An overused computer can also be using more power than it usually does, and this could cause the power supply to burn out. You would know if this is the case if the unit does not turn on at all.

      Now if you're also wondering, "Why does my computer crash most of the time?" the problem could lie with the software or the programs installed. For instance, the crash could be because of your anti-virus software. This may sound strange as the virus is usually the one that wreaks havoc to any computer but in some cases, anti-virus software that is incompatible with your other programs, could spell trouble as well. You can address this issue by reading up on your anti-virus software. Other causes of your computer slowing down and possibly crashing later on are a fragmented hard drive or a cluttered registry. These can be remedied with a registry cleaner and a defrag program run regularly.

      The early signs of a computer crash are easy to recognize: a hard drive making strange noises could be experiencing mechanical failure, and desktop errors you often encounter may be indicative of software conflict within the system. If you stay on the alert for these signs, you can do preventive measures to avoid a computer crash, or use an online backup service for all your computer files before it is too late. Most computers are bound to fail sooner or later, but if you have a file backup plan in place, you won't be left so helpless, and asking "Why does my computer crash?"
                Need to Restore Files from Carbonite Backup? No Problem   
      If you're interested in using online backup solutions and are concerned of the technical difficulties you might encounter, you would be happy to know that it's really quite simple to restore files from Carbonite. Most of us think that tinkering with our computer hardware needs a lot of technical wisdom. The same is true with a new program or software. With Carbonite backup however, doing data backup and recovering the data when the need arises involves processes that are very easy to follow even for novice computer users.

      If you are ever faced with the task of restoring your files after reformatting your hard drive or after a computer crash, the first thing you would need to do is download the Carbonite software again. As soon as you do this, the setup wizard will ask you to choose from two options - restore your files later or restore your files now. If you opt to restore them immediately, you will then be asked if you prefer the files downloaded to their original locations, or choose specific files for specific users. Most users would choose option one but even the more advanced option is relatively easy with detailed instructions.

      Restoring a single file is also possible with Carbonite. Note that the Carbonite is recognized by your computer as a virtual drive, which means that you can open and navigate to it right in your My Computer folder. Once you open the Carbonite drive, it's simply a matter of looking for the single file that you want to restore. Choose the file, then click Restore to send the file back to its original location, or Restore To if you want to save it in another folder this time. Restoring previous versions of the file is also doable up to the saved ones for the last three months. Just click on the Restore Previous Version option.

      Carbonite however, also has its weak points. One of its major drawbacks is the delay you may encounter when you restore large file sizes. Restoring a few hundred megabytes of data for instance, may be completed only after hours or even days of waiting. Even if you want to have a document restored very quickly though, you would need to exercise more patience. The important thing is, you have a reliable backup in place should you experience a computer disaster. Carbonite's servers may be slow when restoring large volumes, but then again, faster servers would have meant more expensive fees.

      Carbonite is not a flawless service, but it is an extremely attractive one. They offer what other companies charge ten times the amount for. You also get an ease of use that is hard to match with many other online backup companies. When you put all these things together, you get a great service which appeals to a large group of people.
                Data Recovery From Hard Drive Units That Have Failed -- It's Possible!   
      For those who experience computer crashes from a failed hard disk, it may seem that data recovery from hard drive is a far off possibility. It's frustrating to even think about this because such an event would mean the loss of hundreds of files and documents, whether personal or work-related. The truth is, it's really not the end of the world because there are still ways to retrieve your data; the lesser the damage to your drive, the greater the chances of recovery. Still, there are things that you should avoid doing when this happens to you.

      First, never try fixing the drive on your own. The sealed casing of the hard drive should remain closed because once the parts are exposed to the dust particles, the damage could worsen. Even if you are able to identify the problem and repair it yourself, the exposure to air particulates could cause another problem altogether. Keeping the hard drive sealed but attempting home remedies wouldn't work either. For instance, freezing your hard drive wouldn't make things any better. What you should do instead is keep your calm and consider the right steps to take.

      One of the first steps you should make is to see if your computer can still recognize the drive. Once you establish that the drive still works, you can then consider the other possible causes of the hard drive crash. It may have been brought about by a faulty program or software, or a virus. Running a virus scan will allow you to check if your files may be corrupted. There is also a possibility that your files are extremely fragmented, and the strain on your hard drive caused it to crash. You can correct this problem by doing defragmentation regularly.

      And then of course, there is always the probability that a mechanical failure caused the failure. This is evidenced by the strange sounds emanating from your drive, or if the drive refuses to work at all. In this case, it's best to leave the process of data recovery from hard drive to the experts. Such recovery is only possible with the use of a clean room, suitable tools, and the skill and knowledge of an experienced computer technician. The cost could run up to a considerable amount but it should be worth every dime you spend if you are able to salvage your important files and data.

      You will probably have to experience the woes of a hard drive crash before you decide to start backing up data. But it is worth the relatively small amount of money you will spend to ensure the security of your data. If you choose to use an online backup service now, before you ever have to deal with a hard drive crash, you won’t have to spend time, effort and potentially thousands of dollars to recover your important data later on.
                Should I Worry About the Safety of My Files with Carbonite?   
      More people are now discovering the wisdom of using online storage services as a reliable method for having a backup of one's important files, as compared to keeping local backups such as external hard drives. What they all want to know now is "How safe are online backup facilities like Carbonite"?

      The process that they go through is extensive and thorough to make sure that they have all of your files and that they are securely encrypted, so as to prevent theft and loss. I have checked them out thoroughly because I use this service myself and had the same concerns before. From protecting files that have been stored over time to those that we have just saved, Carbonite Backup gets them, encrypts them, stores them, and keeps them safe.

      As they say, anything is possible so there is still that slimmest of chances that some untoward incident may happen to put your files at risk, but the probability of this happening is very low - perhaps close to none. Carbonite's servers are maintained with the highest levels of professionalism and with the most advanced technology.

      If mere words of assurance are not enough for you to completely believe in this online backup company's capabilities, allow me to quickly explain what goes on behind the scenes when Carbonite backs up and stores your files. Before the actual transfer, your data is protected by the 448-bit encryption. Then when the transfer process commences, the files go through further encryption using the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) to guarantee that no theft or loss takes place while data transmission is on going. These two encryption methods are among the best today and no one has ever breached them. When your files reach Carbonite's serves, they remain in that encrypted state until you retrieve them.

      If you need to access your files, Carbonite has encryption keys to unlock your data and only a few select people at Carbonite have access to these encryption key codes. Even the database that stores the encryption keys is encrypted as well. Carbonite stores over 25 billion files and there is no ordinary employee that has access to any of the files.

      Now that you understand what they do to keep your files safe and secure, you should have all of your questions answered. If you are using an external hard drive as your backup method or not using any backup at all, you are taking some horrible risks that could end up being detrimental to your data. You can lose everything to theft, scams, house fires or equipment failure. The biggest risk you are taking is not using Carbonite for your computer backup of all of your files and records.

                Five Questions To Ask When Looking For The Best Online Storage Service   
      There are a lot of online storage services available today but the key to having complete confidence that your files and data are securely backed up is choosing the best online storage solution there is.

      The need for high-quality online backup services was determined first of all by the gradual transition towards a paperless society. In a matter of few seconds important data and information can be irretrievably rendered. But this situation can be avoided by simply subscribing to an online backup facility.

      And if you think that backup functions are all these services can offer, think again. Here is a rundown of what other benefits can be had from storing your data "in the cloud."

      Data Loss Protection. Computer crashes, hard drive failure, even natural disasters can bring about loss of data. Whether one loses important business documents or personal files, the damage can be just as equally difficult to recover from.

      File Access Anytime, Anywhere. Even if external hard drives may provide secure protection against data loss, this does not enable you to have remote access of the files anywhere in the world as long as an internet connection is available.

      File Sharing. You will be able to share with your loved ones and family your latest pictures and even with your business partners your latest proposals. Online storage backup services with file sharing ease your work towards other people and support good-quality communication.

      After analyzing these benefits, the ultimate question is what to look for in a storage service. Therefore, when you will find yourself comparing various backup solutions, you should ask yourself the following five questions:

      What features come with the package?

      Most online backup services offer as basic features like file storage, file sharing, automatic backup, fast file upload and download, and remote file access. To be efficient, you must identify the ones you need the most and look for the best online storage services within that category.

      How secure is the service?

      Security is a big issue for many online storage users. Unlike external hard drives where you have physical control over your files, you may think that online services can put your confidential files at a risk of unauthorized access. The good news is, online storage backups use encryption technology and password protection to ensure that your files are completely secure.

      How do I decide what is the best value for the money?

      Many online storage services come for free and these may be worth looking into. However, paying a small fee can also give you access to some of the better features such as unlimited storage space.

      Is it easy to use?

      Storage services should be as user-friendly as possible else you risk the possibility of not being able to backup your files properly. If a software seems too complicated to use, by all means scratch it off your list.

      Is there technical support when I need it?

      While using the online backup service you might run into some technical problems that require technical support. You must be prepared for such situations by making sure that the chosen online storage service offers good-quality tutorials, customer service, or even online and chat support.

      Now that are aware of what features to look for when finding the best online storage service, be sure to read the online backup reviews of the two most common and widely used companies that provide easy-to-use and very affordable online backup for home users!

                The Eversons - Loser   
      The Eversons have decided to release a music video for the song Loser from their first EP. It’s full of archival footage from their days of shredding and skateboarding in their beautiful hometown of Wellington, New Zealand.



      Loser is a ‘90s slacker rock song from The Eversons EP and its video was slated for release in 2011 until tragedy struck- the sole hard drive containing the footage was damaged beyond repair... until now. While packing for London, the boys found a back-up hard drive further down the back of the couch than any of them had ever been and on arrival set to work cutting a bigger, better version of the lost video.

      The new video for Loser is released along with its b-side ‘Fingerpops’, a cover of a song by classic ‘90s Flying Nun band Garageland.

                Killer Instinct   
      SHOW ME THE ANIMAL






      Many do claim that 1994 was an actual date in history with people living their curious lives, having casual fun under morose cable rainbows. Bah! Little if any do these scientific observers know about the favorite interests and pastimes of the violent arcade geek with the well developed affection for all things post- apocalyptic. Killer Instinct scouts out fictional areas conceived in a future that worships violence and finds rampant pleasure observing the twisted beauty it delivers. The game made its debut of aggressive retinaseduction with a visual/modal style vivid and radical enough to solidify the output as one of the most memorable VS installments.

      Enjoy and read on!





      Killer Instinct arrives by a time that already have seen illustrious franchises and The Lady Kier! emerge. Mortal Kombat, the Street Fighter series, even Sega's Virtua Fighter is available to the public and the style is quite popular by the period. Killer Instinct comes to the arcades as a rather unorthodox machine, sporting a muscular CPU which is steadily supported by a highly secretive hard drive. This storage capacity throws the green light on a massive amount of data, giving - totally and completely blissful - possibility to invoke pre-rendered 3D backgrounds. Increased efficiency to store data enabled the developers to go Nuclear with the detail work, giving you delicious, rather large 2D characters, ready and able to splatter some quality guts around in high definition. Did you believe that? From a technical point of view, an evident, elegant Killer we are talking about, living up to its name right by its debut minute.

      Thank God that Killer Instinct sports the most trite - and subsequently most beautiful - post-apocalypse setting the human mind - ok, the sedated sloth mind - could conceive. You know the drill, it is something like:

      "... then the remaining survivors are forced to retreat from the surface of this here scorched, sorrowful Earth! Radical entertainment is the only form of mass pleasure, preventing a dangerously hectic society from losing its fragile balance!"

      This setting never gets old, because it is beyond being old since times immemorial. The Ultratech Corporation organizes the Killer Instinct Tournaments, toe to toe battles taking place between illustrious participants, all of them having rather inventive characters, background stories and -perplexedly! - consorting agendas.

      I find Killer Instinct to be especially strong and brave in its atmosphere, in its modal buildup. The character roster is exceptionally flamboyant, even inventive - creating a spectrum in which you won't find the same flavor or tint of color twice. Got any doubts? Consult the Optional Randompraise of the Killer Instinct Character Roster section then.

      Optional Randompraise of the Killer Instinct Character Roster

      Spinal is an ancient warrior. At default, he is dead since millenniums, yet now he reigns in sheer skeletal form, revived by Ultratech. Pretty traditional delivery from a storytelling point of view, yet this nice, kind of a classic fictionmodel does a very elegant job of introducing a skillfully outlined past to a skillfully crafted future.

      Riptor is a genetic experiment. Hm. A geneRic experiment, you thought? AND a possible tribute to Primal Rage, huh? A modest WOW nevertheless, as commanding rampant T-Rexes was great fun for the whole family in 1994 - we are only one year after Stevie Spielberg's Jurassic Prick!! - and I have a PayPal Donation to make that it remains great fun for the same type of community to this day, as well.

      Cinder is a convict, trapped in some relatively crazy existence characterized by a constant self-burning that WOULD consume the flesh - but this man has a SIN so DREADFUL that his spirit forces him to re-experience torment without END, without RELIEF. I confess I made half of this up. Which part is the actual background story of Cinder, you wonder? Yet Another Amazing Reason to be a regular.

      Glacius is an ice-alien. Exhibits evident T1000 influences from Terminator 2. Question arises: why would we have any problem with this? Sabrewulf delivers a nice, massive goth impact on the atmosphere, no woman nor man could play as a werewolf in a 2D fighting game prior to this. Let's face the Strange: werewolves are kind of cool, and, according to popular mainstream mythology, - worship redundance, then kill it with ignorance - they shred Vamp butts!



      Killer Instinct delivers even when it comes to those popular "BAH! Every. Body. Picks. Them." characters. Some people will tell you that the most popular characters of the game are Orchid and TJ Combo. That is a lie, I think. The most popular character of Killer Instinct is Orchid. Period. Yes, TJ Combo would be the next in line in popularity, but you will never select this muscular brada', as the Orchid with the different outfit color - press up and down on character selection - looks waaay better, yes?



      Even when she has the mild Michael Jackson going on.

      and now -

      The Gameplay

      Killer Instinct comes with two health bars, though you won't necessarily believe this until you see the first one being destroyed, just to be replaced by the second, final one. The game comes with six action buttons. If it came with any less, consider yourself an unlucky dudette and demand a flawless model from the factory. If it came with more than six action buttons, then contact the favorite identity of your optional multiple personality disorder, which, I guess, could be even me, huh? Anyway. Three kinds of punches and kicks are available: Quick, Medium and Fierce. Block happens by the traditional way, meaning all you have to do is to pull your sista'/duda' towards the opposite direction the attack is coming from. The first elegant catch of Killer Instinct slowly and surely emerges though.

      WATCH!



      - How was that again?
      - The Shadow of Your Smiiiile - When You ... Were Gooooone ...

      In this here game, you can perform a block in the lower region or you can perform a block in the upper region. Doing the two simultaneously would be a nice trick to show off, but, luckily/sadly, no one will be able to do that without cheating. Here is how the system works: an attack aimed for the upper body region will smash a low guard, but will be blocked on an upper defense. An attack aimed for the lower body region naturally will bypass a high block, but will be blocked and will cause no damage if it meets with a successful lower block.

      The system of Quick, Medium and Fierce punches and kicks offers a solid basis for the steady pace the game flows at, giving the players an experience of swift tactical warfare characterized by two or three exchanges AND consecutive attempts to introduce Specials and/or Combos. Killer Instinct likes to seduce its participants to be engaged in fervent bloodshed with relative intensity. I have a scientific observation to defend this here latest notion with.

      Behold how the characters are moving way faster when they are approaching their rivals. Backpedaling is an option in the game, but a fragile one for escaping. Remains useful for Combos and Specials that require you to utilize a so called "Charge", though. We will observe these Charges later on thoroughly.

      Playing Killer Instinct with a keyboard on a PC on MAME while your neighbor has no idea of this at all, will give you amazing Specials. First of all, be sure to tap around on the direction keys like an accomplished idiot would do in Masterful Manic mode. The effect will be tremendous! Also notice one of the tiny Wonders that Killer Instinct delivers: Fulgore's metal body will collide with the ground via a highly acceptable metallic sound, even upon finishing a jump. This is all very tender AND a nice base to sew sentiments of later on, true? Now let me ask you this:

      What do you think will happen if Fulgore's metal body collides with snow, wood or ice on the backgrounds that have snow, wood or ice on them? What do you think will happen then, huh?
      Now unto the gameplay mechanics.

      Gameplay Mechanics

      A Quick kick deals less damage than its other variants, yet it connects before a concurrent stronger kick would do. An orthodox method to punish the newbie in Killer Instinct is to "steal" a row of quick strikes or punches on her/him while she/he is busy introducing Specials. Notice how dramatic the damage dealt by a Fierce kick is when compared to that dealt by a Quick kick.

      Specials come in two forms: those that do require Charging movements and those that do not. Charging is quite similar to what you have seen in Street Fighter II, for example. All it takes to perform is to constrain your movement towards the required direction - usually back - then release with the given command to state your Special and/or Combo. In fact, I am tempted to believe that there are no Charge movements in Killer Instinct apart from the "Away" direction - BUT!, since I defy belief with ruthless efficiency, I believe I'll defy to believe that from now on.

      MAME Review Killer Instinct Minigame!

      Image Hosted by ImageShack.us


      Can you spot the ass?

      The game partly is about Specials, yet it is massively about Combos. Combos are the bread and butter of what Killer Instinct really is. Each character have a number of Specials that are utilizable to Open a Combo. Combos, as you may have suspected already, are offensive moves you land on your puny rival with rapid succession, giving her/him no time to regain composure. Not giving the time is not identical of not GETTING any, though. We will see into this matter later.



      MAME Review gives you:
      The not too GTA IV screenshot.

      As far as the Killer Instinct Combo system goes, you need to master Openers, Linkers and Enders. And, everything else that do not fall into these aforementioned categories. These cited elements are executed automatically once you give in the appropriate commands, yet the name of the game here is your own readiness and trusty knowledge of implementing possible, additional hits before moving on to the consecutive Linker or Ender maneuver. Thus: the art of playing according to the rules of this system consists of two main ingredients:

      1. finding the elements (hits) you could - effectively - smuggle in between the aforementioned categories of Openers, Linkers and Enders.
      2. proving that the elements are implementable, merely by demonstrating your crazy Combo on any opposing butt foolish enough to stay in the presence of your amazing skill set of profane deconstruction!

      The game monitors all successful Combo efforts and will categorize executed Combos on the fly. The basis of this is a simple, yet elegant naming convention, one which categorizes a Combo based on the number of successful hits it consists of. There are Triple, Super, Hyper ... etc. Combos up to Ultimate Combos, but those are invokable only if certain prerequisites are met. Once you master the Killer Combos of your favorite characters, you could call yourself a competent personificator of those particular participants and you could jump right on to master the Ultra Combos. Do not be afraid: Ultras are but two-three buttons away from you once certain prerequisites are met.

      Combos can be broken by the proper Combo Breaker move. Each character have a Special which is suitable to be utilized as a Combo Breaker as well, but, in order to use a particular Breaker Special effectively, you should know what kind of attack - Quick, Medium or Fierce - you want to break the opposing Combo on. If you are new to Killer Instinct and all this sounds like Chinese Mandarin to you, then you are getting close to understand, trust me. The Combo Breaker system is quite similar to the Stone, Paper, Scissors game, yet thorough knowledge of the characters and their Combos will be a must to find/reveal/recognize and PLAY True Fun out of this underlying system, one which invites you to explore depths rarely offered by the genre.

      In the Guides this review points you to at the end, you will find extensive information on Combos and Combo Breakers.

      The Killer Instinct Dilemma for the Miserable and the Proud

      Or: Are You a Presser or Not?

      As you will see while you perfecting your Killer Instinct, Ultra Combos are quite easy to trigger: all they require is a flashing hostile health bar and - as mentioned - a combination of two-three buttons once a Combo is being performed. Now, here is the catch and also here is the Killer Instinct Dilemma for the Miserable and the Proud.

      Once invoked, Ultra and Ultimate Combos will come to their glorious manifestations as acceptably long sequences of successful attacks. You are pretty much free to sit back, grab a beer and/or a (couple of) well shaped (fe)male knee(s) and enjoy the Ultra or Ultimate Combo you have just stated.

      But! If!

      You are one of the Miserable and the Proud, then you will not do this. The Miserable and the Proud player of Killer Instinct will push the buttons around in a highly manic manner once the Ultra or the Ultimate Combo is triggered - making absolutely everyone believe that he is a One in a Million kind of player, a Legit Archtalent, a VS Type Fighter Demigod! Absolutely everyone, granted that we are talking about the happy people who have zero idea about the workings of the game, that is. Ultras are nice additions, as they are glorious Finishes you could flatter your best Killer Combos with, yet they also are the Bittersweet Solace of the Lazy and the Incompetent, and THIS - is acceptable.

      Just not laugh when you spot a Killer Instinct Ultra Combo Presser showing off the Godlike Skillzzzzz. First of all, it might hurt the feelings, not to mention that the point of the game is to remain Ultra Serious when an Ultra Combo is being guitar-soloed in front of your very eyes.

      Question arises though: is it satisfying to push the buttons around like a mad person when your automated Ultra/Ultimate is triggered and plays along safely, regardless of your actions?
      The only honest answer for this question is this: you must seek YOUR answer for this question. And yes, I asked Yoda and he confirmed, too. (Yoda is a Presser by the way.)

      Leftover

      Killer Instinct had no aspiration for being accused of coming short of the cute novelties and good old fatalities the era and the style demanded by the day. The game delivers acceptably yet not too memorably in this regard. Each participants have multiple finishing moves - fatalities, if you will - and all of them could engage the opponent in a brief, nevertheless somewhat satisfying dance session, too. Once you have mastered the ropes and you are in the possession of the "basic" - HAH! - combo set of your favorite characters, the game invites you to explore even deeper waters by mastering the highly secretive Shadow Combos and related delicacies that deliver additional content to the game.

      As you may have suspected by now, Killer Instinct brings you a rather sophisticated system with plenty of moves and secrets to discover. The knowledge about the game is vast already, therefore I give you a link which points to the most serious and truthful Killer Instinct Guides the human race has grateful knowledge of.

      This went out today to those who either emotionally or financially sponsor my Clarion West write-a-thon commitment. If you want to see the full poem, please send me a message here or through facebook or my email to let me know you want to support me, or you can sponsor my efforts financially through my write-a-thon page by donating to Clarion West there.

      Hey, all--

      Thank you again for your past and present support of me, and of Clarion West.

      This wasn't supposed to be late. In fact, it was ready to send just a day after my belated first week report. However, while I was writing this, the hard drive on my main computer decided that it was tired and had served long enough. Replacing and restoring everything took days which I could not spare. Luckily, it was easy. Just slow.

      Having Neil Gaiman teach this week was such an eye-opening experience. I had something of a idea of the intensity of being rockstar writer from working with George R. R. Martin at the workshop last year, but since Neil was on book tour and doing a signing, I had the chance to see him interact with his fans. For hours. And hours. He is impressively there in the moment for the people who wait in long lines to have that brief time with him. He's there, and he's listening.

      He's also the most charismatic and generous person I've been around in a while, and I was impressed to see how he uses those powers for good. He was also an impressive teacher, so the students had a great, if intense, week.

      Again, chunks of time were rare, and my writing time was in bits, but because I had supporters and sponsors I made myself take advantage of those moments. Several members of last year's class were kind enough to give me comments on the first chapter of The Road Between, so I made some revisions, including lopping off a kind of prelude, which had been necessary in earlier drafts but because of other recent revisions no longer was. Buh-bye. Then some tightening and shaping followed.

      I have a little more to go before I load it back up on my kindle app on my iPad to see it afresh and get back to the second draft of The Empty City.

      This week's poem comes from me losing one of my favourite earrings, made by a jeweler from Orkney. The design is called the Finnish beast, and though I still have one, I really miss having the pair. Hope you like this beast.

      Thank you again for supporting my writing--and for supporting Clarion West, which inspires so much of my writing.

      Love,

      --Neile

      A former student of New York’s Ithaca College pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography and transportation of child pornography. Authorities found thousands of images and hundreds of videos of child pornography in his possession. Nicholas Feminella, 21, was arrested for viewing and sharing child pornography online. As part of his plea deal, Feminella admitted to uploading sexually explicit videos of minors to a Dropbox account from his computer. Feminella was arrested in November 2015 after authorities suspected he possessed child pornography. According to court documents, New York State Police searched his Ithaca home where they found more than 13,000 images and 870 videos of child pornography on an external hard drive. The former student told investigators that the children in the videos he uploaded were around 8 years old. He also admitted to watching child pornography from the age of 14.

                Organisations and Computer Users Must Take Immediate Action to Protect against Petya Ransomware    

      Wazzup Pilipinas!

      Fortinet, a global leader in high-performance cyber security solutions, today advised organisations and computer users to brace and take immediate action against a new ransomware variant called Petya that is sweeping across the world. The ransomware is currently having an impact on a wide range of industries and organizations, including critical infrastructure such as energy, banking, and transportation systems.

      This is part of a new wave of multi-vector ransomware attacks that we are calling “ransomworm”, which takes advantage of timely exploits. The ransomworm is designed to move across multiple systems automatically, rather than stay in one place.  It appears that the Petra ransomworm is using similar current vulnerabilities that were exploited during the recent Wannacry attack.

      Unlike WannaCry which encrypts a computer’s files, however, the Petya ransomware encrypts a segment of the hard drive that renders the entire computer inoperable. Older legacy systems and critical infrastructure are particularly vulnerable to this attack.

      The patch for this vulnerability was issued by Microsoft earlier this year. We advise organizations to update their systems immediately.


      In addition, here are a few other steps organisations and individuals should take to protect themselves:

      IT Department
      ·         Back up your critical systems’ files, and keep that backup offline.
      ·         Ensure you have a ‘gold standard’ operating system disk and configuration, to allow you to reconstruct your desktops with confidence.
      ·         Patch.
      ·         Check the currency of your patches.

      Users
      ·         Don’t execute attachments from unknown sources.

      Security Operations
      ·         Push out signatures and antiviruses.
      ·         Use sandboxing on attachments.
      ·         Use behavior-based detections.
      ·         At firewalls, look for evidence of Command & Control.
      ·         Segment, to limit the spread of the malware and backup data being encrypted.
      ·         Ensure that Remote Desktop Protocol is turned off, and/or is properly authenticated, and otherwise limit its ability to move laterally.

      General Guidance
      ·         If affected, do not pay the ransom
      ·         Share facts of infiltration with trusted organizations such as the local police, to assist with overall community efforts to diagnose, contain, and remedy the attack.

                HP Proliant ML10 v2 Tower Server   
      Newegg often put these servers on sale for less than $180, a great value if you need a desktop, either a light weight server or workstation. It is very easy to add or swap hard drives (up to 4), with the front-accessible cartridge:


      However, that's pretty much its only virtue in addition to the low price. It takes several minutes to boot up the BIOS; in comparison, a normal desktop takes only few seconds. It is a pain in the ass to load an OS such as Windows Server 2008 R2 (Windows 7 alike), so here I recorded the process before I forget.

      A hard drive is included, but it is under a raid that is not configured. You must download the
      "HP Smart Storage Administrator" and follow these instructions to configure the raid:

      Then, as mentioned in the instructions, you must download the driver of the raid controller (HP Dynamic Smart Array B120i Controller) and uncompress it to a CD/DVD or USB jump drive. After you started Windows installation, soon you'll need it:


      The rest is fairly easy, and all the drivers can be downloaded here.

      Three tweaks for Windows 2008 R2:

      1) By default, Windows will go into recovery mode, i.e., hang there forever if nobody is around, after an abnormal shutdown or reboot (such as a crash or power outage). So be sure to run these two commands before you ship the server to a remote site:

      bcdedit /set {default} recoveryenabled No 
      bcdedit /set {default} bootstatuspolicy ignoreallfailures

      2) By default, Windows asks you the reason every time you reboot, very annoying. Run gpedit.msc, disable "Dislay Shutdown Event Tracker" under Computer Configuration, Administrative Template, System.

      3) If you have to use an unsigned driver, you must use Driver Signature Enforcement Overrider, a neat utility.

      Once Windows and all drivers are installed, it is a solid computer, for very little money.

      Three tips:

      1) Before you install Windows, go into BIOS and set correctly date (and time), or your 180 days trial will expire once you correct the date in Windows.

      2) Why Windows Server 2008 R2 other than Windows 7, even if I don't use it as a server?  I heard that these boxes do not like consumer OS such as Windows 7. The two look, feel and work the same, and the server seems even slimmer and smoother with no garbage installed by default.

                LaCie’s USB-C Hard Drives Are a Perfect Companion to the MacBook Pro   

      It seems as if USB-C is going to be the wave of the future, and with that being the case, a lot of traditional devices that came with USB 3.0 will be all but obsolete in the not-so-distant future. This includes the external hard drives that we use today. LaCie sent over their USB-C Porsche Design Mobile Drive for me...

                My History of PC Enthusiasm   
      PC’s have been an integral part of my Life. Ever since I got my first PC, I was really into the world of Computing. Although, I wasn’t that interested in Hardware at first, somehow, I began to appreciate what was inside the Case of my current PC back then.
      I think I was in second grade or third grade when I got my First PC. I don’t have a picture of it saved anywhere. My Dad bought it off of my late godfather. He was the best friend of my Dad. He suffered from Myocardial Infarction and die the same day. His wife was then selling all of his Tech Stuff.
      It was a good PC at the time, late 1990’s. It was a Pentium MMX 300mhz PC, a big fancy motherboard with 64mb SD RAM. It had a 9gb Hard drive and used SCSI as its interface to connect to the motherboard. It was also equipped with a CD Burner and a swappable HDD Bay. The tower was huge and was heavy as brick. The PC lasted a few years and helped me with a lot of school projects back then.
      We took the PC back home to the Philippines when my mom retired. It was running for a few months until they decided to move the PC to the new house they were building without removing the cables from the System. That of course disconnect the Graphics Card inside the case from the motherboard. Me, a total noob back then, without knowing anything about computers, has started up the PC and it wouldn’t boot up. I was afraid of opening the Computer Case and looking what might be the problem inside. So I let the PC gather dust in the corner of my home. Typical 11 year olds.
      After 1-2 years I decided to revive the old PC. I have brought it to a local PC technician and he fixed the old thing. The main problem was the graphics Card. It was an s3 Pro Savage ddr PCI graphics card, which was pulled out from the PCI slot during the transfer. He put it simply back in and the Pc worked again. It was prolly 2002 and the PC was still running windows 98. LOL.
      Somehow, the PC stopped working a few years later. I went PC-less for about 3 years till I got to College.
      2005 and I got finally into College. That was the time I told my parents to buy me a new PC for my studies. Of course they were skeptical, as they were thinking that I’d only use it for Games. A few months into college, they finally agreed buying me that sweet, new PC. Pentium 4 was still the mainstream back then. We were going to purchase a ready made PC from a well-known store. I think it was OCTAGON, Tuguegarao City where we made the Purchase from.
      The Complete PC Package was the following:
      Processor: Pentium 4 2.4ghz Prescott
      Motherboard: MSI P4mam2-V
      RAM: 256mb Samsung DDR
      HDD: WD 40GB IDE HDD
      CD: Regular CD-R Burner
      Monitor: AOC 15” CRT Monitor
      Printer: HP PSC1315 AIO
      Chair + Computer Table
      Set of Speakers
      DSC04148
      So, it wasn’t a gaming PC for that time. It ran basic games like Warcraft 3, Starcraft, and some MMO’s. This Computer went thru a lot of upgrades and lasted till 2009.
      My first upgrade to the PC was an ATI Radeon 9250 128mb Graphics Card. And boy, was I happy back then to play some of the games that wouldn’t run on the PC before like NBA Live ‘05, Command and Conquer Generals. I figured, 256mb wasn’t enough so I bought another 256mb DDR stick to make the system run on 512mb. The PC was fast that time although I have been craving for more.
      A Year has passed, and it was around 2006 that I wanted to ugprade my Graphics Card. The 9250 wasn’t performing that well for my needs so I decided to sell it to a friend of mine. With the few options available in the area, I took upon the Radeon 9550 256mb. Another ATI Card, which performed superbly. I was able to max out the games I was playing that time. The feeling was still incomplete and I wanted more. I needed more STORAGE! So I asked my friend, who was going to Manila, to buy me a set of 512mb DDR Sticks, total of 1GB and a 250gb IDE HDD for more storage.
      My system early 2007:
      Processor: Pentium 4 2.4ghz Prescott
      Motherboard: MSI P4mam2-V
      RAM: 1GB DDR RAM (2x 512mb)
      GPU: ATI Radeon 9550 256mb
      HDD: WD 40GB IDE HDD + Seagate 250GB IDE HDD
      CD: DVD-R Combo Drive
      Monitor: AOC 15” CRT Monitor
      Printer: HP PSC1315 AIO
      Chair + Computer Table
      Edifier 2.1 Speakers + The Cheap Speaker Set
      Man, was I proud of that system. That was the time I began with some basic Video Editing in Sony Vegas. It performed reasonably well with those specs and on Windows XP 32bit, too.
      2008 came and we were going on an Affiliation Trip to Manila for 3 weeks. That’s where I figured to upgrade my GPU again. I was looking thru some selling sites in the Philippines and stumbled upon the PALIT Geforce 7300GT AGP 512mb. Although PCI-e was the mainstream already, I couldn’t afford to buy a new board and processor. The card was on sale for about 2,350.00php thru a local seller in Manila. I was so excited getting home and installing the card.

      Image2177
      I was running F.E.A.R. on Max settings back then. The same with Battlefield 2, 2142, and Need For Speed Carbon. This is where I knew that I was getting addicted to this PC upgrading thingy that was going on. You can never have enough.
      Through 2008 till late 2009 has this PC served me well. Through lots of College Paper Work, Video Editing, Photo Editing, as well as Gaming for that time, I couldn’t complain about its performance. Although, seeing the boom of Technology on Youtube, with people getting GTX280’s and the new SLI Technology, it made me crave and crave for more.
      Sadly, during my Nursing Board Review (Yes, I’m a Registered Nurse), this PC has given up on me. RAM sticks started to fail, the 7300GT burned out, and the HDD’s made strange noises and failed to spin after a while. I was already saying goodbye to the PC, and I realized that all through those years, I haven’t had named it.
      During my Board Review, I still needed a PC to continue my work, do video editing and other stuff. I asked my Parents to buy me a Laptop. It was already late 2009, where I received my first Laptop, courtesy of my parents for my Review. It was a Toshiba Satellite L-505D 6948.
      DSC00331
      The Specs were:
      AMD Turion X2 Dual Core 2.20ghz
      3GB DDR 2 SODIMM
      320GB HDD
      DVD Super Multi with Labelflash
      16” Truebrite Widescreen Display
      and so on.

      I did a lot on that laptop, and has helped me become the Person I am today. The Laptop died around 2011 due to Motherboard issues.
      In 2010 I was able to build a new PC with the help of my Mother. It was a birthday gift cause I was sad for letting the old PC go that I had. She gave me a budget of 30,000.00php and it was up to me how I would spend it for PC Hardware. So, I made a list of all the components I would like to have and went the next day shopping.
      IMG_0821
      Late 2010 PC Specs:
      Processor: AMD Athlon 64 5200+ 2.7GHZ
      Motherboard: EMAXX AMD780G Pro+
      RAM: 2GB Kingston DDR2 800mhz RAM
      HDD: 320GB Seagate HDD
      GPU: Palit GeForce 9800GT Green 512mb
      Case: Regular Case
      Monitor: Viewsonic 19” Widescreen LCD
      IMG_0828

      I can’t remember if I spent all of that money just on that build, or if I have saved some of it to spend on other things. The graphics Card died though 3 years after use. I had to replace the Card in 2012 to a Powercolor Radeon HD4850. Best budget upgrade ever. Add another 2GB RAM stick and I had a perfectly fine running machine that could play some of the newer games during that time.
      I have been running that machine from 2012 – 2014. Gaming, working, editing was everything that kept me busy. It wasn’t a beast but it suited my needs.
      With my recent move to Germany, I was in need of another computer. Well, a portable one. So, it was time to buy another Laptop. I was not in need of a brand new one. It could be a used one but with good specs at a cheap price. So, I consulted TipidPC for the best deals. I found one that suits my needs (Multicore, good GPU for basic Gaming, and good storage).
      2014 Laptop Specs:
      Manufacturer: ASUS
      Processor: AMD A6 quadcore 2.1ghz
      RAM: 4gb DDR3 Sodimm
      GPU: Dual Graphics Radeon (Don’t know which ones)
      HDD: 750GB HDD
      Screen: 16” LED

      I am able to play most of the games I am currently playing (Counter-Strike GO, DOTA 2, TF2, Minecraft, etc.
      There you have it. This is where my PC addiction has begun. Sorry for the long post. I hope you enjoyed this post reading as I have writing it.
                My life with Technology   
      I was a grade 1 pupil and every time I went by the principal’s office, I saw that computer of his. A big CRT monitor with a huge CPU case. I think they were Pentium MMX CPU’s running at 333mhz that time with 32mb of RAM, and a 4mb video card. That was 1994 i think. The first technology with electronics etc i had was a gameboy, yeah the fat big gray one with super mario and good old tetris. then i begged my parents to buy me a NES, and i got a nes. The following week i told my parents to buy me some more games for the NES but they insisted to buy a brand new SNES with super mario world. Then came 1998, and the N64 came out. I didn’t opt for the popular “buy” option but I waited a little bit longer. 3 years to be exact. It was 2001 and finally my mom bought me an N64.
      Had a PC but the story was totally different. I think i got my first PC in 1997. My uncle died so my father bought his PC. The specs are horrifying today so here were the specs:
      Processor: Intel Pentium MMX @ 333mhz
      RAM: 32mb of SD RAM
      Video Card: 4mb S3 Pro Savage PCI
      Hard drive: 6gb IDE hdd.

      I still have the PC but doesn’t run anymore. It was great for games like starcraft and hercules. LOL
      Then came the pentium 4 era, way back 2004. I got into college and my parents bought me a P4 PC with 256mb of RAM and integrated graphics. It was a nice PC but i couldn’t play most of the modern titles like NBA and FEAR. I searched for options to make them run on my machine but had no luck. I was advised to upgrade my video card. Well intergrated gfx suck and they are not for gaming. So, i opted for the “buy” option and bought myself a HIS Radeon 9250 128mb 64bit AGP video card. And it was a warm welcome to Directx9 gaming, even though the card only supported dx8.1. lol. After a year, i wasn’t contented with the 9250. I upgraded to a Sapphire Radeon 9550 256mb 128bit DDR video card, and it was a huge jump for me from the previous graphics to the gfx i had with the 9550. FEAR, NFS Carbon, and BF2 ran smoothly on high, if not, medium settings. It was a nice card, it had a little blue light on its fan. Had the card for over a year and sold it to a friend ‘cause i was going to an excursion and thought of buying a new video card. I bought myself a Geforce card this time. An Nvidia Geforce 7300GT 512mb 128bit AGP from PALIT, and all of the previous games I mention were clocked up to maximum.
      Upgrading and buying PC hardware can be an endless battle, which the ending of the story, can hardly be seen. If you're a tech enthusiast, you probably know what I mean. Technology is going by fast, and the latest in tech, probably by 4-5 months, will already be obsolete.

                B-Roll: File formats and file size   
      I've got a lot of B-Roll and the file sizes are too much for us to maintain them in a usable way. 300 gb for a 30 min .avi? What are decent formats/compressions that are acceptable but that also give manageable file sizes? The b-roll is all scenic and ski footage. The total amount isn't too bad, about a terabyte, but many of the files are too big to even share with Dropbox so they just sit on hard drives that don't get used. I can't help but feel some of the older giant files are of lower quality than something 1/100th the size that was generated by my iPad.

                Petya or 'NotPetya', the ransomware mystery lingers   

      San Francisco/New Delhi: Initially thought as the 'Petya' ransomware outbreak that shut computers in several countries, cyber security researchers are now dubbing it as a new form of malware attack that doesn't demand ransom but permanently destroys data.

      "In other words, the researchers said, the payload delivered in Tuesday's outbreak wasn't ransomware at all. Instead, its true objective was to permanently wipe out as many hard drives as possible on infected networks," arstechnica reported on Friday.

      Researchers at Moscow-based cyber security firm Kaspersky Lab have labelled the malware a "wiper."

      Kaspersky Lab experts said the new malware is significantly different from all earlier known versions of 'Petya'.

      "And that's why we are addressing it as a separate malware family. We've named it 'ExPetr' (or 'NotPetya' -- unofficially)," the Kaspersky Lab blog post said.

      The attack appears to be complex, involving several attack vectors.

      "We can confirm that a modified 'EternalBlue' exploit is used for propagation, at least within corporate networks," it read.

      'ExPetr' (aka 'NotPetya') does not have that installation ID (the 'installation key' shown in the 'ExPetr' ransom note is just a random gibberish), which means that the threat actor could not extract the necessary information needed for decryption.

      "In short, victims could not recover their data," the researchers added.

      In the 2016 version of 'Petya', the ID contained crucial information for the key recovery.

      "Tuesday's malware, by contrast, was generated using pseudorandom data that was unrelated to the corresponding key," wrote Kaspersky Lab researchers Anton Ivanov and Orkhan Mamedov.

      Meanwhile, Janus Cybercrime Solutions, the author of 'Petya' resurfaced on Twitter, offering to help those whose files can no longer be recovered.

      "The altruistic gesture, even if it does prove fruitless, is uncharacteristic of the criminal syndicate that launched an underworld enterprise by placing powerful exploits in the hands of others to deploy as they see fit," said a Gizmodo report.

                Workbench #4: Legs: mortise and tenon   

      First of all, my workbench build is far beyond the point that I’m going to share, I just have bunch of pics and I decided to throw them on the blog. There’s nothing special here, but some little documentary to remember. So…

      For M&T job I made couple of marking gauges out of pine. I know pine is not the best choice for this, I just wanted to practice a little before making marking gauge of my dream.

      I put pins just where I needed and then just re-inserted them for different dimensions. And I have an extra beam for replacement.

      Next I marked the mortises and bored out most of the waste.

      Then I cleaned up rest of the waste with the chisel.

      Memo to self: get a corner chisel.

      .
      .
      .

      Well, I think I lost all the tenon pics somewhere on my hard drive…

      Ok, in brief: marked the tenons, then cut knife walls for crisp edge, then sawed along knife walls, then chiseled out waste and cleaned tenons with small rabbet plane.

      I was quite happy with M&T job results, and bravely moved to drawboring. So the next blog entry is going to be “Drawboring: the good, the bad and the ugly”...

      I used to ignore this sound before. But after losing important files because of hard drive failure and unsuccessful attempt to fix it, I became so paranoid that even if the sound coming from it is just normal, I immediately look for physical disruptions that might be causing it.

                AVCHD editing for the everyman   

      We recently had the opportunity to test out a Panasonic HDC-HS100 high-def video camera for our 2008 Holiday Gift Guide. The camera shot beautiful looking video, but the native AVCHD format was not fun to extract or try to edit. Our regular production systems run on Mini-DV tape or we record to a FireStor hard drive in AVI format. This makes editing in Adobe Premiere CS2 easy. But the AVCHD format spit out by the Panasonic camera was not editable. A major pain. Now, there's a new $129 editing tool from CineForm that can help consumers and the like get the most out of the AVCHD format videos. Neo Scene for the Mac (out today) and Windows (available since January), can convert native AVCHD format to a more usable QuickTime MOV format for edting. Now those family trips and holiday videos can be quickly edited down from two hours of mind-numbing footage to a more entertaining 5 to 10 minute video. As a plus, Neo Scene also supports the new Canon 5D Mark II DSLR camera that can shoot video as well, making the software a must for the photographer who uses their 5D for quick video clips. To be fair, Neo Scene is not the only product on the market to support the AVCHD format. The latest version of Adobe Premiere supports it, as does Pinnacle Studio Plus 11 or greater, Sony Vegas 8 and others. But at $129, Neo Scene is one of the cheaper alternatives. There's a fully-functional trial download available from CineForm for those that want to try before they buy (always recommended). Update 2:20p: Changed the details on how Neo Scene handles the AVCHD files. It does convert them before editing.

                Ukraine Cyberattack Wasn't Really About Ransom, Security Experts Say   
      A deeper look at the virus that struck computers in Ukraine and elsewhere this week has shown that what initially looked like ransomware was in fact a type of malware called a "wiper." Rather than extorting money, it's goal was to erase victims' hard drives, disrupt their business and misdirect suspicions about the attacker's identity, according to The Washington Post and other media reports. Victims of the cyberattack saw a screen asking them to pay $300 in bitcoin for a key to unlock their computer – the same ploy used by the WannaCry ransomware that hit computers in more than 150 countries in May . But security experts say this attack was different. "It definitely wasn't ransomware and wasn't financially motivated," Jake Williams, founder of cybersecurity firm Rendition Infosec, tells the Post . "The goal was to cause disruption in computer networks." Likewise, Matt Suiche, founder of cybersecurity firm Comae Technologies, writes on his website , "The goal of a wiper is to destroy
                What's In Your Ditch Bag??   
      Like most offshore sailors, we kept a ditch bag full of very important, life-saving necessities near the companionway exit when we were on a long passage. The common thinking is that if the snot really hits the fan, you can grab your ditch bag on your way to the life raft. Uh-huh.

      Well, regardless of whether you'll have the time or the where-with-all to grab the bag, it's a good idea. And don't just think this only applies to those of us who live a watery existence. Back when we lived a land based life, we also kept an emergency plastic tub with a few essentials handy, just in case.

      Since I’m unpacking the boat, I've brought home our ditch bag. So...here's what we put in our ditch bag. I'm curious to know what you put in yours. What are we missing??




      We use a duffle bag with backpack straps to enable an easy exit and keep our hands free. Yep, we still drool over those fancy yellow bags that float and have perfectly sized partitions for all your 'stuff', but this was a better fit for our budget (ie: free). Everything is double-triple bagged in ziplocs.

      Here's what's in it:
      • Fancy EPIRB (Emergency Beacon with GPS)
      • SPOT (another beacon to call for help, or let your friends know where you are)
      • binoculars
      • first aid kit, gauze, bandaids, slings, splint, tensors, suture kits, and ana pen etc.
      • seasickness meds and T3s
      • gps with batteries
      • signaling devices: strobe light, flash lights, laser light, glow sticks, whistles
      • gerber multi-tool
      • copies of passports and boat papers
      • waterproof notebook and pencil, playing cards
      • sunscreen and emergency blanket
      • sail repair thread (should have included a needle)
      • hazard kit (includes foil water pouches and some type of expired food 'product', toilet paper, garbage bags, and other stuff).

      Some stuff that isn't in this picture, that we usually put in the bag for our big passages:
      • cash and passports
      • satellite phone
      • handheld vhf radio
      • hard drive with photo backups (yeah, I'm a photo-crazed fool)
      • sunglasses
      • a book
      • chocolate (most of it was eaten on our final days at sea...running out of chocolate is definitely an emergency situation aboard Renova).

      We also had a second bag that was tied on that had our supply of flares. We kept a jug of water tied on deck, with a knife nearby to cut it loose. On our North Pacific passage, we put our wetsuits into a dry bag and left that near the exit also.

                Fixing a Mac OS X Spotlight Index, that Doesn't   

      Mail.app "Entire Message" Greyed OutAfter a spate of Mail.app problems probably related to having too damn many mail accounts and messages, I had to do the "Mail.app Reimport Samba" taking hours to let Mail.app reimport the entire mail store. After that got resolved, I found out that my Mail.app "Entire Message" selection in Search was greyed out. This turned out to be a symptom of a problem with the Spotlight index, since this search function of Mail.app is dependent upon the Spotlight index of the hard drive where your mail is stored. Generally speaking, the Solution was to delete the Spotlight index, and then re-index the drive. However, it was not a simple process (is anything?!), and as such was very "un-Apple", so I thought I would take the time to document it.

      How to Make Spotlight Re-index Your Drive, Even When She Says No!

      A.k.a., How to Fix Greyed Out "Entire Message" in Mail.app Search. As I was learning to do this procedure in my OS X 10.6.3 system, looking at the Apple forums and elsewhere, I observed that Spotlight was taking "forever" to re-index, while it should re-index a 500GB drive in an hour or so. When I clicked the "pulsating" Spotlight icon in the upper right of the screen (it pulsates or winks while re-indexing), I saw a message that Spotlight was calculating the time required to index the drive with a barber pole progress bar, but it was just stuck in this state for days. This prompted me to try various things to fix it, and no one method from any one forum ever worked for me, in practice.

      So, let me try to explain what did work.

      Remove the Extraneous

      Disconnect any external drives and shut down any unneeded programs.

      Remove Unneeded Spotlight Importers

      Spotlight importers which allow programs to get their output files indexed are sometimes the cause of Spotlight crashes. You can find them in /Library/Spotlight and ~/Library/Spotlight (where ~ is your home directory, of course). If you have third-party importers, especially in ~/Library/Spotlight, you can move them to another folder for safekeeping, then move them back one by one to see if the "indexing forever" problem recurs. I deleted ones that were associated with programs I never use, but kept the ones I do use.

      You can search the entire drive for the .mdimporter files, using this command. Hat tip to "Hal Itosis" (lol) on the MacFixit Forum.

      # find -x / -iname \*.mdimporter -exec ls -lndotT {} +

      Repair Disk Permissions

      I use the excellent Cocktail for this but you can do it in 3rd Party OnyX or Apple's included Disk Utility as well. In Cocktail, use the Disks menu, Permissions tab. Choose to Reset Permissions and ACLs for Home Directories for All Users, then click Repair. This takes about 30 mins to execute.

      Prepare the Index

      Using Terminal, use launchctl to unload the indexer by controlling the appropriate launchd command, use mdutil to turn off indexing for the root folder (the /) of the local hard drive, use rm to delete the index itself (.Spotlight-V100 in the root of the drive), and finally trash Spotlight's plist.

      $ sudo bash

      Password: *******

      # launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.metadata.mds.plist

      # mdutil -i off -E /

      # cd /

      # rm -rf .Spotlight-V100

      # rm -rf ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.spotlight.plist

      # exit

      $

      To explain, note the sudo bash and exit lines, bookending the procedure. This gets you a root prompt (the #) after you enter the admin password and then exits the root prompt at the end (returning to the $ prompt). You can also use sudo before every command, to be extra safe.

      Clear All Caches

      Noting that this part will force a reboot, again in Cocktail Files, Caches, choose Options and select all caches you can. Executing this resets the system to a state close to what you get when you install anew or do a major upgrade. Note that the system will take longer to restart because it is rebuilding caches, and applications will be sluggish the first time they restart, because they are rebuilding font caches.

      Click Clear to execute the cleaning procedure and wait while it finishes. Choose to let the system restart, but when you hear the startup chime, hold down Shift so the system restarts in Safe Mode.

      Safe Mode Index Rebuild

      The system will take a while to get into Safe Mode. After you press and hold Shift while starting up, once you see the progress bar during startup (which is not present in normal mode), you can let go of Shift and go get coffee while it starts up. The login prompt will have a red Safe Mode in it, to alert you to the difference.

      Again in Terminal, issue some commands to rebuild.

      $ sudo bash

      Password: *******

      # launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.metadata.mds.plist

      # mdutil -i on -E /

      /:

      Indexing enabled.

      # exit

      $

      After a few minutes you should see the Spotlight icon start to pulsate, but this time, the "Calculating Indexing Time" should change to some value, and a blue progress bar, which means the indexing is actually working. You can restart into regular mode, and the indexing just picked up where it left off, for me. However, do not connect any additional drives until it is done indexing the main drive.

      Observing and Confirming

      There are a few things you can do to observe and confirm Spotlight's activities, in Terminal. This assumes you are at a root prompt.

      Check the size of the Spotlight index using du (directory usage):

      # du -hsc /.Spot*

      1.1G /.Spotlight-V100

      1.1G total

      Note that this should be a fairly large file. If it is only a megabyte or so, something is broken or your Spotlight index is off.

      Check Spotlight-related processes with ps (process lister):

      # ps axcru |sed '1p;/ md/!d'

      USER PID %CPU %MEM VSZ RSS TT STAT STARTED TIME COMMAND

      root 352 0.0 2.8 3696728 117196 ?? Ss 8:44AM 24:25.73 mds

      _spotlight 6677 0.0 0.2 2532748 10292 ?? SNs 3:19AM 0:00.33 mdworker

      rcogley 6664 0.0 1.2 2638620 48240 ?? SNs 3:19AM 0:02.95 mdworker

      Check index status with mdutil.

      # mdutil -as

      /:

      Indexing enabled.

      /Volumes/COGLEY-WD:

      Indexing enabled.

      /Volumes/COGLEY-WD/Backups.backupdb:

      Indexing enabled.

      /Volumes/COGLEY-WD2:

      Indexing enabled.

      /Volumes/COGLEY:

      Indexing enabled.

      List open files in /System/Library related to Spotlight, using lsof (list open files).

      # lsof -c md |grep -v /System/Library |grep -v Spotlight

      Get general system information with df and diskutil:

      # df -lh

      # diskutil info /

      Show commands you have entered in the bash shell:

      # history

      Note that if you use an alternative shell like fish, some of the above commands will not work. From fish, just do sudo bash to get a bash-based root prompt. Be sure also to check the Console GUI application in /Applications/Utilities. This will show crash information for the mdworker program, which may give you hints to what is going on.

      I hope this article helps someone, especially since this problem seems to be pretty prevalent, these days. Enjoy!

                New T7ES mini-album: DTMF Jam for Dummies for Dummies   
      Good day! Since moving (I think I have mentioned here that I bought a house last year?) I have not actually hooked up much of my music gear, probably because I'm wary of the outcome where they get shittily fixtured because it seems like too much work to organize them into some modestly better arrangement, and so they stay embarrassingly messy (i.e. XLR cable across the middle of the floor) for years. So I'm trying to only take stuff out of the boxes when I have a good place to put them. This includes my Roland SC-880, which is a fancy MIDI machine that I pretty much only use to generate sawtooth waves and square waves for my Tom 7 Entertainment System "band." So for a while I've been without the sawtooth waves, and this is weird because a very common habit of mine is to sit down for an hour and write a little idea of a jam and then not finish it and leave it on my hard drive. So since this thing is not hooked up, I've been screwing around with software synthesizers, which are of course completely capable of making sawtooth waves and so much more, but also have way too many knobs for my liking and often generate stupid and annoying sounds. So I made a bunch of songs and left them on my hard drive, and then today I gave myself a monster headache by finishing some of them up and dodging the clipped bits and putting together a mini-album, since it's been a few years!

      All these songs use ridiculous synthesizer sounds, which I feel is sort of cheating, but maybe you like. Heart emoji indicates favorite, with Facebook Phone being like on the rainbow dolphin sex end of the spectrum and Wires comin' out being on the alien death disco side.

      1. Theme from Facebook Phone (favorite)
      2. Permanent signal
      3. Superior olive
      4. Theme from Bosch proportional servo valve
      5. Wires comin' out everythin' ev'where (favorite)

      A deeper look at the virus that struck computers in Ukraine and elsewhere this week has shown that what initially looked like ransomware was in fact a type of malware called a "wiper." Rather than extorting money, it's goal was to erase victims' hard drives, disrupt their business and misdirect suspicions about the attacker's identity, according to The Washington Post and other media reports. Victims of the cyberattack saw a screen asking them to pay $300 in bitcoin for a key to unlock their computer – the same ploy used by the WannaCry ransomware that hit computers in more than 150 countries in May . But security experts say this attack was different. "It definitely wasn't ransomware and wasn't financially motivated," Jake Williams, founder of cybersecurity firm Rendition Infosec, tells the Post . "The goal was to cause disruption in computer networks." Likewise, Matt Suiche, founder of cybersecurity firm Comae Technologies, writes on his website , "The goal of a wiper is to destroy

                Seagate claims world's fastest laptop drive   
      Seagate has officially announced its Momentus XT, a hybrid hard/solid state drive (SSD) that it claims is the world's fastest 2.5in drive for laptops.

      The device is designed to offer performance comparable to a costly Flash SSD, but with the greater storage capacity and lower price associated with standard hard drive technology, according to Seagate.

      The Momentus XT achieves this by combining a 7,200rpm drive with 4GB of SSD storage, and using built-in algorithms to put the SSD's speed to best effect. This is independent of the operating system or any applications used, the firm said.

      Seagate's Adaptive Memory technology intelligently monitors application and file requests, and puts the most commonly accessed data in the SSD, where it can be accessed much faster than from the magnetic disk.

      The Momentus XT is 80 per cent faster than a conventional 7,200rpm drive, according to Seagate, and a laptop will boot twice as fast as one with a typical 5,400rpm laptop drive.

      The drive is shipping into the channel and to system vendors now, and Asus has announced that it will offer it as an option for its new Republic of Gamers G73Jh laptop.

      The Momentus XT is available in 500GB, 320GB and 250GB capacities, with suggested retail prices of $156 (£108), $122 (£84) and $113 (£78) respectively.

                Install Windows XP - The Most Popular Operating System   
      Windows XP is the most amicable series of operating system, which has been developed by Microsoft and was introduced on October 25, 2001. It was the first version, where Microsoft put the restriction of product activation, to combat illegal copying.
      Read this blog to know the authentic method of installing Windows XP.
      First you should check the compatibility of Windows XP with hardware configuration of your computer.
      “As per recommendation you must have a computer equipped with a processor of minimum 233 MHz to 300 MHz or higher, minimum memory around 64 MB RAM2 to 128 MB RAM or higher, video adapter and monitor -Super VGA (800 x 600) or higher resolution and Hard drive disk free space -1.5 GB or higher”
      Note: Additional 1.8 GB in Service Pack 2 and additional 900 MB in Service Pack 3
      You can follow the given steps to install Windows XP on your computer.
      Step 1. Load your DVD tray with Windows XP installation CD/DVD.
      Step 2. Restart your computer and press any key when prompted to do so.
      Step 3. As the content of the DVD is getting copied, you receive a message like "Disc one - (#)Megabytes". Press D button of your keyboard.
      Step 4. To create new partition press “C.” You are flexible to decide number of partition and size of each. Press Enter once you have decided the size. You can decide the partition, where you want to locate operating system XP’s file. Choose the file system as “NTFS” as permitted for Windows XP and complete the installation procedure with the help of on-screen prompts.
      Next step in Windows XP installation is to equip it with compatible device drivers for network adapter, wireless adapters, CD-ROMS, Hard Drives, Video Cards, and Printers so that you can accomplish your task perfectly.
                Difficulty with modem communication   

      I was recently hacked bad.  I had to totally format my hard drive.  I reinstalled Windows 7 and Lookout 6.7.1 as well as appropriate .l4p, .l4t, lka and lks files, which pretty much brought me back to where I was before the hack.  However, my phone communications are failing.  We use both Direct Logic D340 and M340 modicoms in the field.  Lookout is occasionally communicating with the M340's, but it is erratic.  It is not talking AT ALL to the D340 and the modems keep getting stuck whenever they try.  We use a variety of modems in the field, but most are Sixnet VT-MODEM-1WW.  Oddly enough, I thought my radio communications would be the issue, but they are all communicating perfectly.

      I have checked the settings on all 8 of my NI PCIe 8430/8 (RS-232) comm devices and the BPS, Data bits, parity, stop bits and flow control all match what is on Lookout.  The comm ports also match to what we had before the hack.  They are running the same driver as they were before the hack (NI 3.9.0.49154).  I had tried the newer version of the driver (15), but it was having the exact same issues, which is why I downgraded to the version we were originally running, HOPING that was the issue.

      Anyone have any ideas?  I have been plugging away at this for the better part of a week and have hit a steel reinforced brick wall.  Thanks.

                 ‘Petya’ malware doesn’t ask for ransom, it permanently destroys data: Kaspersky   
      Initially thought as the ‘Petya’ ransomware outbreak that shut computers in several countries, cyber security researchers are now dubbing it as a new form of malware attack that doesn’t demand ransom but permanently destroys data. “In other words, the researchers said, the payload delivered in Tuesday’s outbreak wasn’t ransomware at all. Instead, its true objective was to permanently wipe out as many hard drives as possible on infected networks,” arstechnica reported. Researchers at Moscow-based cyber security firm Kaspersky Lab have labelled the malware a “wiper.” Kaspersky Lab experts said the new malware is significantly different from all earlier known versions of ‘Petya’. “And that’s why we are addressing it as a separate malware family.

                Software Craftsman Yule Calender: 16th of December:   
      Todays topic is "The gaffa tape programmer

      I strive to hone my coding craft at any opportunity.
      I don't see them to be at odds with any other priorities in the coding domain.

      However, I do mash stuff together sometimes, what is otherwise known as "Gaffa tape programming".

      I don't always strive for complete 100% coverage. I strive to identify pockets/domains within my code that warrant TDD. The more I can fit into those pockets, the better. The more I can compartmentalize the material, the better.

      But when the building blocks are in place so that I from the offset can purposely express a end task in the suitable pseudo language that rise from existing components, I "mash" them together.

      Yesterday, I noticed that the old comic book series "elf quest" was published on the net. (www.elfquest.com) as it no longer was going to be printed. You could browse the comic book online by clicking "next", "next" etc.

      I made a web crawler to scrape it onto my hard drive. Three loops: one "do-while" and two "for-each". No tests.

                Home Network & WiFi Configuration   
      Home Network Question: Help me choose the right router and network configuration for my needs. Our Netgear 802.11b router just died, so we're in the market for a new one. However, we have a couple of concerns.

      1. We've been talking about moving up to 802.11g, but my partner's G3 iBook won't be able to connect to it. She plans on getting a new computer early next year, but until then, we still need that computer to connect. If we get a "g" router that claims "b" cards can still connect, will that really be the case? Will we need to adjust configuration in some way?

      2. We'd like to network our printer and an external hard drive over the router. What's the best way to do this?

                Upgrade your old laptop with a Raspberry Pi   

      Have you ever wondered what to do with that old laptop you kept for so long because you never had the heart to trough it away?

      Plug a Raspberry Pi2 into your old laptop and give it a second life! Also wouldn't it be great to get your Pi around the house with a very portable setup? I know you get a Pi-Top (I'll admit it's cool but $269.99 without the Pi!!!), you can get a Touchscreen even the original from the Pi Foundation, but the recycler in me sometimes screams for justice.

      This setup I am using costs near to nothing and gets the dust off those useless laptops in the loft.

      The idea is pretty easy; we get a Pi, plug it in two USB ports of the laptop via a Y cable, connect it via the Ethernet port to the NIC of the laptop, VNC into the Pi, configure the Wi-Fi and job done.


      Fix the Pi on the back of your laptop's screen with whatever you can think of and enjoy a Pi with no dangling cables but with a nice keyboard, video and mouse setup.



      I made sure that the steps to follow are as simple as possible and that the configuration should work in the majority of situations. By all means this can be further improved and I'll be glad to hear from anybody who might have suggestions.

      The configuration and setup can be replicated pretty much on any laptop you might have, even a new one!

      Hardware requirements


      The requirements for the laptop are:
      2 USB ports
      1 NIC ethernet
      1 Working keyboard and 1 Working Touchpad/Mouse :)
      1 Working Screen :))



      Mine is quite old as you can see



      The Pi needs a Y USB cable with the usual micro connector on the other side. This StarTech 1 feet USB Y Cable for External Hard Drive - Dual USB A to Micro B can do just the job.
      A short (20-30 cm) Ethernet cable CAT5e would be more than enough.
      Finally a compatible Wi-Fi card.

      This is essentially it from the HW point of view. The reason for the Y cable is to make sure that the Pi receives enough current to power itself correctly. Each USB ports in USB1/2 delivers a maximum of 500mA so if you have a laptop of that era you certainly need the Y cable.
      The Ethernet cable doesn't need to be a cross-over although that wouldn't hurt if it is. The Pi is capable of Auto MDI-X and will be able to adjust to a straight or a crossover cable directly connected to the laptop; no Ethernet HUB/SWITCH required.

      Software configuration


      Software wise the Pi will come with its usual distro Raspbian and the Laptop in my case is Elementary Linux. Different combinations of distros should certainly work but might require adjustments compared to what I am showing here.

      06-02-16 Please check the information at the bottom of this page before going ahead with the ICS setup.

      The quickest A quick way to have the best "Plug & Play" experience is to configure the laptop to work as a DHCP for the Pi, this will ensure that the Pi can just come out of a freshly burned SD card (If you use NOOBS you need to install an OS first) with no need for any configuration only requiring to only install VNC server on your Pi but with no need to configure its networking.

      Most NetworkManager distributions should allow for "internet connection sharing" for each network cards. This allows for the laptop to use a service called Dnsmasq to provide automatic configuration of networking parameters for the guests, in our case the Pi. Great!
      This is how I configured my laptop:




      Once the "internet configuration sharing" is setup our Pi can be plugged in in the USB ports of the laptop and hooked to the Ethernet cable.
      After a while we should have an IP for the PI but we are not going to know which is going to be that easily. Luckily both Rasbian and Elementary (Linux in general does) support something called mDNS out of the box. mDNS is for DNS what Link-local address is for IP (you know those 169.254.x.y addresses?) and it allows for DNS names to be setup "democratically" amongst computers in the same network. Raspbian sets its name as


      raspberrypi.local

      and once it gets an IP you should be able to ping raspberrypi.local without knowing the IP, excellent!
      If you can ping it, you can SSH to it and that's the next thing to do.


      We SSH to the Pi and start the VNC server (of course there will be a one off password to setup, keep it simple and use the Pi user password).



      The server should be started with the same resolution of your laptop screen as we want to run the Pi in full screen on the laptop. The command to run on the Pi will be something like:

      vncserver -geometry 1280x800 

      or whichever is the resolution of your laptop, I hope you know how to find it :)


      We now have a VNC server to connect to, note that it runs on screen :1 but don't try yet to get on the Pi until you have done the steps below otherwise you won't be able to use F8 to close the session as the keyboard might not work.

      One thing you may find in fact is that once in fullscreen the keyboard is not working on the remote session. To fix this I had to edit /etc/X11/app-defaults/Vncviewer as sudo

      sudo nano /etc/X11/app-defaults/Vncviewer

      This is distribution dependant and you might have to look elsewhere for this file depending on what you run on the laptop.



      The line that we are uncommenting is:

      Vncviewer.grabKeyboard: true

      on the laptop we should now be able to VNC safely to the Pi. The command I am using is:

      xtightvncviewer raspberrypi.local:1 -fullscreen -compresslevel 3

      we are connecting on host raspberrypi.local on screen 1 in fullscreen and compress the session to get better performance. I made a script just not to have to type that all the time.


      You can play with compresslevel from 0 to 9 where 9 is less compressed. The network should not be the bottleneck as it is a dedicated fast-ethernet connection but the video card on you old laptop might be the one not actually able to keep up.

      If the command above succeeds you should be prompted for the VNC server password you set earlier on and after that you should finally be in your Pi's desktop!!

      We are not done yet unfortunately, a few more tweaks.

      The first thing to do on the Pi is to configure the eth0 card as static IP.


      The reason is still within the realm of keeping things as simple as possible. You remember that Dnsmasq you mentioned earlier? Well as a good DHCP it will keep on refreshing periodically the information of the Pi's Ethernet adapter not only with IP and Mask but also with Gateway, DNS and default route. Now, after we will enable the Wi-Fi card on the Pi we'll want for the default route and the DNS server to be only the ones of the Wireless card not the ones configured from the DHCP server on the laptop. This will ensure that the Pi will be able to connect to the internet only through its Wi-Fi card.
      The best thing to do is to configure the IP address of the Pi's eth0 as the one it used to receive from the DHCP's laptop and


      uncheck "Automatically configure empty options"

      leaving the Router and DNS sections empty.



      Note that this will configure the network mask of the Pi as 255.0.0.0 whilst the laptop interface will have a mask of 255.255.255.0. This is not going to cause any problems although it is quite an horrible thing to live with if you have done any serious networking in your life!

      Next we need to edit:

      sudo nano /etc/resolv.conf

      on the Pi to remove the settings obtained from the laptop. We need to remove the line that says:

      nameserver 10.42.0.1

      or whichever is the IP of your laptop
      it should look like this:


      Lastly we need to remove the default route 0.0.0.0 associated with the laptop's address, in my case:

      sudo route del -net 0.0.0.0 gw 10.42.0.1

      so that the routes will look like this:


      At this point we'll need to configure the Wi-Fi connection on the Pi in the standard way and we should be done!!!


      After these steps connecting again should be just a question of powering up the laptop, starting the VNC server on the Pi (which can of course be set to start automatically) and VNC into the Pi.

      What is left to do


      A lot more automation can be done. When the laptop shuts down for example we should be able to also run a clean shutdown and wait for the Pi to be off before shutting down the laptop. The VNC session could also be run automatically at the startup of the laptop including passing the password for the Pi. The initial configuration of things for both the Pi and the laptop could be scripted to make things easy even for the less expert.
      Finally get a better networking configuration, I hate that thing about the network mask!!

      Also some good designer cloud come up with maybe a 3D printed enclosure or VESA fix like structure that can be adjusted to most laptop screens. It'll be nice to find a way to accommodate a breadboard too although having it always fixed on the back of the screen might not be ideal.

      I leave it here I guess but this is clearly far from being something to "resell".

      Notes


      If your laptop comes with a Wi-Fi interface then you could use that to connect the Pi to the internet in a much more traditional ICS configuration. This hides the Pi behind a NAT and for the majority won't be a problem and work great, I preferred to use the laptop just as a KVM though.

      I must admit that I have tried to find out whether the Pi supports Link-local address which would have made things less complicated but I couldn't find much about this and eventually opted for the more cumbersome "internet connection sharing" approach.

      TIP


      In the long run having to type a password for the laptop and one for the Pi can be tedious so my advice is to at least enable autologin on the laptop and disable the password prompt when exiting the screensaver

      Link-Local Address


      Since I wrote this article I researched a bit more into the matter of Link-Local Address and specifically with regard to the support of this in Raspbian. It turns out that the Pi is more than capable of supporting IP auto configuration and this is in fact the quickest way to go about configuring the Pi in tailless mode (I like calling it this way!).
      By configuring the laptop Ethernet interface as Link-Local only the adapter will get a 169.254.x.y address and will be immediately ready to resolve raspberrypi.local.



      This doesn't mean that the steps I discussed in the main part of this article are wrong only that the networking setup can be achieved in a much easier way if using Link-Local address instead of ICS.

      Sorry for the confusion

                1974   
      I spent the other weekend with the Secret Poets on a writing retreat. It was both great fun and very productive. Here's a poem that came from one of the writing workshops. We had to focus on a specific year and try to put ourselves back there in the moment. 
      It was surprisingly easy to do once I got going. We were asked to write down a sentence in response to a series of questions. The poem had to be 20 lines long.
      This is my take.

      1974

      I spend more time on the green buses
      travelling there, or coming back
      than I do where I am going.
      There is the occasional milky coffee,
      chipped cups in bus station cafés,
      windows misted, cigarette smoke and coughing old men.
      The park is empty.
      The sun slopes through the trees,
      reddens the lake and the municipal ducks.
      Winter comes calling.
      My patch pocket, button front, black loons
      are no match for this lazy wind.
      I don't know where or what we eat,
      but we are either at The Grand, or the Beer Keller,
      or in a doorway kissing.
      Once in a while your house is empty.
      I say I love you.
      I have no idea what those words mean.
      The set of answers left me with a series of images from 1974 that I wove into the above poem. I think it may be near completion.
      Sadly I have not been able to find any photographs from the time on my hard drive. You are presented with some photographs of the New Bridge instead.
      I've been listening to Ryley Walker recently. His third album had some good write ups, though I could do without the hyperbole. Why is it we have to compare new musicians to older artists? Is it to make the job of selling them easier?
      Here he is playing Roundabout.
      And here he is live.  
      He's touring in May. Should be worth seeing.
      Until next time.

                Back up blog or FTP directory with AppleScript    
      All those many different WordPress plugins to back up my blog looked too daunting to me, so I decided to create my own simple Mac-native solution using AppleScript. This AppleScript does the following:
      1. Simulates a double-click on the alias to my web server (where my WordPress blog lives) to mount it as a WebDAV volume (just like iDisk)
      2. Runs the handy Unix backup command rsync to copy the remote contents locally
      3. Unmounts my web server

      I then set up a daily iCal event to run the script at 4 a.m. Since I already have CrashPlan backing up my hard drive, that takes care of archiving periodic versions of the backup, just in case.

      Here's the script:

      set filepath to "Macintosh HD:Users:USERNAME:Library:Favorites:www.example.com"
      tell application "Finder" to open filepath
      delay 30
      
      do shell script "rsync -av /Volumes/www.example.com/blog/ '/Volumes/Backup/wordpress-backup'"
      
      tell application "Finder" to eject "www.example.com" ...

      *******************
      Please note – these are digitized embroidery designs and monogram fonts. They are not patches that you sew on. You must have an embroidery machine to work with these files and a way to transfer the files from your computer to your embroidery machine - (usb, memory card, cd, etc.). With the monogram alphabets/fonts each letter is a separate design and you must layer or merge the designs together to create names or words. If the software that you are working with doesn't allow you to merge multiple designs together – you may need additional software to utilize these sets. We are happy to recommend software to use if needed. We DO NOT support files that have been saved into a format that is not offered and we cannot test. Designs that have been re-sized will not be supported. Re-sizing a file MAY compromise the integrity of the design.

      FORMATS:
      BX - DST - EXP - JEF - HUS - PES - SEW - SHV - VIP - VP3 - XXX. These are a few of the most popular formats. If you are unsure of the file type needed, or do not see the type for your machine listed please contact us BEFORE purchasing your items. The license for the design you are purchasing is for ONE format for use one ONE machine. If you selected the wrong format by accident – no worries, we will help you get the proper format. Again, if you have questions – just ask! Here is a helpful guide for the type of format needed for some of the machines on the market:
      BabyLock PES
      Bernina ART for Artista 440 and below; EXP for Artista 630 and up, and Deco 340. EXP or ART for Artista 730; ART or PES for Deco 330. ***please note**** In most cases, you can convert exp files into .art format. However, there are problems that can occur when converting some fill stitch designs. If you or your machine is converting from exp to .art – please be sure to check the files before stitching. We have several years of designs to convert – so this will take some time. If you have questions – or would like a specific design, just ask!

      Pfaff PCS for older machines, VIP for newer machines such as the Creative Vision

      SIZING:
      For monogram sets, the size of the set is based off of the Capital A in the alphabet. Each letter is sized proportionately to that letter, and will often times be larger than the size of the alphabet. For instance, a cursive capital Y has a tail that falls below the baseline of the letter, and would be larger than the capital A. Single design size label is based on height OR width of the design – but will be consistent for each specific design (example, for tall/narrow designs we will base the sizing off of the height of each design. For designs that are wider, we will size according to width. If you have questions, just ask! That is what we are here for!
      CD'S:
      We no longer offer CD's. We simply do not have the bandwidth to create CD’s at this time.

      What is surprising is how little corporate take up has changed given malware and viruses on Windows... like two days ago.
      That will take time. Heck, if businesses really wanted to, they could buy Macs and simply run Windows in a virtual machine, while keeping a clean copy of the VM unopened, offline, or in a backup. VMs run plenty fast enough these days for most tasks unless they're processor intensive.

      I seem to recall reading that Apple was pursuing enterprise sales for Macs more in recent years, but that was over a year ago and I haven't heard anything lately about it. Perhaps they mentioned it in recent earnings conference calls?

      As a side note, I finally blew away the Windows 7 Bootcamp partition on my iMac to get back the 300GB I had allotted to it. I didn't use it enough to justify take up that much hard drive space. I found that when I did boot into it, it had become very frustrating to use. Since I'd go months without using it, many updates would have to download and try to update, they'd inevitably fail, and Windows would revert the changes. This would take many hours to accomplish and make my computer unusable for most of that time.

      Eventually I'll install Windows 7 again in a VM and live with it that way.

      Sony Music goes back to vinyl records

      There is some backlash against Apple in particular and digital music in general. Most of the populace is indifferent. Audiophiles are different.

      I wonder what Allen would be saying.


      Personally I don't want to go back to vinyl... its really hard to find a record player that doesn't skip when I'm riding my bike, and 24 bit files sound great to me.

      But I'm happier with my new Sony than I am with my new iPod. My new Sony "just works"... last night I spent some hours getting ready to clone my system to another hard drive which I will update and use ONLY to load my new iPod. My old iPod... which is otherwise identical to my new iPod "just works".

      We'll see. I'm distrustful of hardware buttons, and even though the Sony seems very very solid one cannot tell how long the mechanical parts of the buttons will last.

In first describing how this cryptocurrency works for payments, it’s very easy to get started with an account and integrate it into your accepted forms of payment. Bitcoin walks you through the very short implementation period that involves a very straightforward set-up process. You don’t need a merchant account or any special equipment. It just requires a Bitcoin wallet that is located on your hard drive, mobile device, or in the cloud. After doing considerable research, I realized that...

      Intel GL40 graphics with support for two high-resolution monitors up to 2048 x 1536, or up to 32 bit color depth. Output through VGA and DisplayPort connectors. Optional adapters available for DisplayPort to VGA or DVI-D connections.
      Power Supply
      The power supply is a laptop-style 19V one with a coax connector. The outer diameter of the plug is 4. 8mm. I believe the inner diameter to be 1. 7mm but it's not the easiest thing to measure the diameter of the recessed pin in the socket, it might be 1. 4mm. When I searched on line for 't5740 PSU' I was surprised to find a number of offerings claiming to be replacements that were fitted with 5. 5mm/2. 5mm plugs. I can assure you anything with those dimensions does not fit my t5740!

                Ukraine Cyberattack Wasn't Really About Ransom, Security Experts Say   
      A deeper look at the virus that struck computers in Ukraine and elsewhere this week has shown that what initially looked like ransomware was in fact a type of malware called a "wiper." Rather than extorting money, it's goal was to erase victims' hard drives, disrupt their business and misdirect suspicions about the attacker's identity, according to The Washington Post and other media reports. Victims of the cyberattack saw a screen asking them to pay $300 in bitcoin for a key to unlock their computer – the same ploy used by the WannaCry ransomware that hit computers in more than 150 countries in May . But security experts say this attack was different. "It definitely wasn't ransomware and wasn't financially motivated," Jake Williams, founder of cybersecurity firm Rendition Infosec, tells the Post . "The goal was to cause disruption in computer networks." Likewise, Matt Suiche, founder of cybersecurity firm Comae Technologies, writes on his website , "The goal of a wiper is to destroy

                Who owns the Masters? Information every young musician or studio owner should know.   
      Who owns the masters?

      So you bought a DAW, and you invited your friend over to record a song. No "deals" were made, no verbal agreements, just a mutual enjoyment of music and some friendly songwriting. After the song demo is recorded, your friend shows it to his Dad, who gives it to a friend at Universal. In one week the demo is released "as is" and your friend is now an international pop star.

      Sounds crazy right? Well it happens, but not often. So who gets paid and what? Well it all goes back to your original investment of time and equipment. Since no money was exchanged between the artist and the equipment owner, the ownership of the master goes solely to YOU the equipment owner.

      Why?

      Wikipedia states:
      Definition

      The phrase "original master recording" began in the period of acoustical audio recording - one "cuts" a recording because the sound is literally cut into the record. The resulting record was then used as the "master", or original prototype from which further vinyl or acetate copies could be pressed. There is only one original master recording, and that's the recording made at the time of the original recorded performance, but the term "master" is commonly used to describe almost anything used as a source.


      For us, this translates directly to the Mixdown made into a WAV file / MP3 or whatever method you used when you selected "Bounce to Disk." In this way, the hard drive that stores both the Pro Tools session and the Mixdown can be declared as the "Master".

      Wiki cont.
      A multi-track [recording] may be remixed many times, in different ways, on different days, by different engineers, giving the possibility of several masters (AM radio version, mono version, LP stereo version, single version, guitarist's personal version with lead solos emphasized, etc). Any of these would have the designation "first generation", but not necessarily "master", which means there could be many alternate mixes.


      Each of these alternate mixes could then be released, and each would be considered a "master" to which ownership can be declared. Masters can only be used, if a "Master use right" is obtained.

      Harry Fox Agency:
      What are Master Use Rights?

      Master use rights are required for previously recorded material that you do not own or control... ...Master use rights can only be obtained from the owner of the master recording.


      Who owns the master recording and how is it determined?

      Wikipedia:
      Ownership of the master

      Song masters and album masters are considered intellectual property. As with physical property, ownership is acquired by purchasing it, creating it or inheriting it. In this sense, the intellectual property concept applies similarly in the purchase of a house, a car or any other property. The ownership to the master will however not necessarily correspond with the title to the copyright in the audio work. Thus, the sale of a master tape will in most jurisdictions not necessarily imply the transfer of copyright to the songs recorded.

      Before a song or album master is released, the value of the master is determined by the cost to produce it. After release, the value of the master is determined by its potential to sell CDs. The master and all rights associated with it may be sold for several times the production cost or "recoup-able cost".


      Here's the first question you need to ask, "What was agreed upon before the session?" In the case that nothing was agreed upon, the title lies with the executive producer or financier. He who pays the studio time, owns the product. If the artist being recorded did not offer monetary compensation in exchange for the services of your studio, then the time was financed by the studio owner. Cost to the studio can be derived from several sources, such as wages to employees, cost of materials, cost of equipment, utilities cost, consumption of perishables etc.

      In the event that an agreement was made as to monetary compensation for services, a work for hire contract should be used.

      U.S. Copyright Office / Library of Congress
      What is a work made for hire?

      Although the general rule is that the person who creates the work is its author, there is an exception to that principle; the exception is a work made for hire, which is a work prepared by an employee within the scope of his or her employment; or a work specially ordered or commissioned in certain specified circumstances. When a work qualifies as a work made for hire, the employer, or commissioning party, is considered to be the author. See Circular 9, Work-Made-For-Hire Under the 1976 Copyright Act.


      Let's stay on the idea that no "work for hire" agreement was made. If a verbal Agreement was made that you would take money for studio time, then you have effectively entered into a binding contract.

      CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE -- CONTRACTS -- SECTIONS 1619-1622

      1619. A contract is either express or implied.

      1620. An express contract is one, the terms of which are stated in words.

      1621. An implied contract is one, the existence and terms of which are manifested by conduct.

      1622. All contracts may be oral, except such as are specially required by statute to be in writing.


      "Certain types of contracts do have to be in writing to be valid, under laws known collectively as the "Statute of Frauds." These types of contracts include sales of land and other interests in real property, agreements which, by their own terms, cannot be performed within a year, and contracts for sales of goods priced over $500...

      or Contracts for the services of $5,000 or more.

      ...For almost all other agreements, writing is not necessary for them to be legally binding. However, as mentioned above, proving the existence, and exact terms, of a verbal agreement is often very difficult (it boils down to a "he said, she said" matter), so putting any important agreement in writing, even if it isn't technically covered by the Statute of Frauds, is always a good idea."
      -WikiAnswers

      For more information, see California Civil Code Chapter 923 - "Statute of Frauds"

      In the event that no verbal, written, or expressed contract was made, nor payment received for services rendered, the ownership of the "Masters" stays with the financier, or studio owner.

      Wikipedia:
      Masters with respect to independent music and major label recording contracts

      In a typical independent artist/production deal, the artist will pay the studio up front to produce songs or an album of songs. In this deal, the artist, having financed the project, owns the master. If the studio, production company or record company finances the master, sometimes called a "spec" deal, then that studio or company owns the master.

      An independent artist may also do a distribution deal where the independently produced master is temporarily licensed to a major label, and then returned to the original owner; the artist, manager, producer or investor as the case may be.

      Sale of the master vs. sale of albums

      A recording may generate revenue for the artist and studio/record company simultaneously, regardless of who owns the master. The breakdown of revenues from CD sales, also called "mechanical royalties", is determined by the terms of the recording contract. Mechanical royalties are divided between the artist and the studio or record company in accordance with the terms that the artist has negotiated with that company.


      Now that we have firm definitions or owning the "Masters," lets take a quick look at songwriting, publishing, mechanical, and Sync fees. Since you wrote /co-wrote the song, non-contract splits automatically split evenly based on U.S. Law set forth by the Library of Congress. If there are two songwriters, the split is Songwriting and Publishing evenly at 50 /50. If there are three songwriters, Songwriting and Publishing are evenly split at 33.3 /33.3 /33.3.

      Upon entering into a Publishing deal, an individual or company "reps", "plugs", or otherwise connects your song or "Master Recording" to an artist to get "cut" or a placement in (various media) broadcast. The most common exchange is to offer "Publishing" in exchange for the services of your Publisher. A "Draw" is when the Publishing company offers you a monetary "stipend" in addition to the services offered. A "Draw" sounds great, but is it worth it? Well the answer is completely individual and case by case. If Beyoncé cut your song, and it will be released as her first single off her upcoming album, I would recommend you keep as much publishing and songwriting as you can keep. With a "Draw" the publishing company often takes a greater share of publishing and songwriting in exchange for the upfront money the gave you. This is a typical error made by up and coming songwriters, where lack of foresight and patience can earn a publishing company the "Lion's share." In addition, it is very common that a top artist may require a portion of the songwriting in exchange for "cutting" your song. After all, without their voice, there would be no royalties for the songwriter.

      ASCAP
      How are Royalties calculated?

      A major source of income for many songwriters and music publishers are the
      mechanical royalties due from the sale of CDs, tapes, records, and downloads
      containing musical compositions. Under the U.S. mechanical rate (known as the statutory rate)...


      The new schedule of mechanical rates, which will be in effect though December 31, 2012, is:

      Physical recordings: 9.1 ¢ for recordings five minutes or less; for recordings over 5 minutes, 1.75 ¢ for each minute, rounded up.

      Permanent Digital Downloads: 9.1 ¢ for recordings five minutes or less; for recordings over 5 minutes, 1.75 ¢ for each minute, rounded up.

      Mastertone Ringtones: 24¢ (for non-derivative uses)

      Interest on late payments: 1.5% per month, or 18% per year.

      EXAMPLE:
      A million-selling single would be worth a total of $91,000 in combined royalties to the publisher and writer. For an album, the above royalties would be multiplied by the number of songs on the album. For example, if 10 songs were included on an album and each received a 9.1¢ royalty, a total of 91¢ in mechanical royalties would be generated from the sale of each album. Thus, if the album sells between 1,000,000 and 10,000,000 copies, the combined writer and publisher royalties for the album would range from $910,000 to $9,100,000.

      Mechanical royalties are paid by the record company to the music publisher or its representative (BMI / ASCAP etc), who then shares them with the writer based on the "200% pie" 100% Songwriting and 100% Publishing.



      I hope that after reading this article, we as recording engineers, music producers, and studio owners take care to protect ourselves, our investments, our businesses, our careers, and our children. By making decisions based on the current knowledge of Copyright and Distribution laws, we force companies to act honorably. Where in so many horror stories, artists in the past were mistreated and their rights stripped from them, because of a lack of knowledge on their civil rights put forth by our country. Record Labels and Publishing companies often include articles in contracts which deliberately remove us as owners and creators from our creations.

      By signing contracts we do not understand, and by not understanding the current laws and standards of the music industry, we expose ourselves to financial danger easily avoided with knowledge of our rights. When Ray Charles historically demanded to own his own masters, it was a milestone for artists. Without the knowledge as to why he should own his own masters, he would have never truly gained control of his financial future. Thank you for taking the time to read this article, I hope you found the information useful.

                Why Google can’t tell you if it will be dark by the time you get home — and what it's doing about it (GOOG)   

      Emmanuel Mogenet

      These days it may seem like Google has an answer for practically everything but there are some questions it still can't answer.

      Ask it "what is 1,374,294 x 384,293,999?" and it'll give you an answer within a matter of milliseconds but ask it "will it be dark when I get home tonight?" and it won't be able to tell you.

      Emmanuel Mogenet, head of Google Research Europe, explained at the 3rd Research and Applied AI Summit (RAAIS) in London on Friday that he and his team of 130 Googlers in Zurich, Switzerland, are desperately trying to change this.

      Referring to the "will it be dark when I get home tonight?" question, Mogenet said: "The answer is not on the internet anywhere to be found. The sad thing is we have all the data to answer this question. We usually know where the user is. We usually, if the user lets us know, know where they live. We know what time the sun sets at every point on the planet. We can predict movement of the user if he's on the road for example. So all the pieces of the puzzle are stored somewhere on one of our hard drives."

      He added: "But coming up with the answer is not something we're capable of because we cannot get to the semantic meaning of this question. This is what we would like to crack."

      Mogenet said that a breakthrough in this space would benefit Google for obvious reasons. "We're in the search business. We're in the assistant business. Being able to answer that kind of question for our users would be extraordinary."

      google homeOne option, Mogenet said, is to "build a gigantic database of everything there is to know about the world. Petabytes and petabytes of facts." But Google doesn't believe in this approach because it's impossible to scale due to all the various analogies there are in the world and the fact that they can all be combined with each other.

      Instead, he and his team are using a range of artificial intelligence techniques to try and get there, adding that it boils down to Google being able to understand natural language.

      "We want to solve common sense to the point where a computer would look at a [do not cross] sign and say 'yeah, of course, why would you do that'".

      He explained that Google needs to try and build a model of the world so that computers know things like "when there is a 747 there's not going to be a giraffe on top of it."

      One way to go about building that model of the world is to look at all the images and videos on the internet. "We have massive amounts of images of the world available for free on the internet," said Mogenet. "The amount of images available on internet are two to three orders larger than every image you will ever see in your life."

      He explained that a model could be created by "pumping" an image dataset through a computer vision stack that was capable of annotating it and doing statistical analysis on it. "Building a computer vision stack that’s powerful enough to splice the world in its components and hopefully their 'relationship' is something that will get us to a very basic semantic understanding," said Mogenet. "We need lots of data, but we do have this."

      In the short term, Mogenet said that his group's research will be used to support new features in Google's virtual personal assistant. In the long term, Mogenet thinks that his group's work could pave the way towards general AI, which is when machine intelligence reaches parity with human intelligence.

      "I'll be honest with you, I believe that solving language is equivalent to solving general artificial intelligence. I don't think one goes without the other. But it's a different angle of attack. I think we’re going to push towards general AI from a different direction."

                Dropping Frames on Playback and Digital Cut - UHD 60P DNXHR LB   

      Hi Marianna and Avid users! :)

      Thank you for your quick responses to my previous posts! Much appreciated.

      So I'm moving to 4K content production with a Panasonic GH5.  I shoot in UHD 60P and then transcode all media to Avid DNxHR UHD 60P LB to keep the bitrate.

      I import all the files in the Avid no problem.  However, upon playing back of the footage, sometimes I see some red bars appear on the timeline, indicating dropping frames.  Also, when I try to do a digital cut, the application reports "Some frames were dropped."

      Using my previous workflow of filming in HD using XDCAM 50 MBPS 4:2:2, i never have this problem.

      Here is my computer specs (shown below)

      My computer was built in October 2013. What CPU do I need to upgrade to playback UHD 60P DNxHR HD LB without dropped frames please?

      Thank you.

And with NextDrive’s Cam, any event that’s detected by Pixi can be automatically streamed to be watched on your smartphone, all while Cube records it with its built-in memory.

      When you want to view saved recordings later, you can easily browse your videos with a familiar timeline. And with quick bookmarking, it’s simple to make note of what might be of later importance. But if you want to just simply go over your notifications to recall an event better, you can now do that easily.

                Idaho Writers & Readers Rendezvous   
      If you were a member of the Idaho Screenwriter's Association, I have some wonderful news for you. This year at the Rendezvous, we are honored to present Steve Kirwan, Executive Director of the American Screenwriters Association.  Please don't miss out on this opportunity to connect with an amazing man.

      His love for writing began at a young age.

                Moving root partition in linux   
      After several frustrated atempts to move my root partition to another hard drive I finally found a way to do so.

      The error was simply the initrd of the old root which was pointing to the wrong partition!

      Here's what I had in the begining:

      -> Root partition in /dev/hdb1 (when I first installed linux I still had windows in /dev/hda1)
      -> Swap partition in /dev/hdb2, pretty simple, huh?
      -> Space available in /dev/hda

      I wanted to move my whole installation to the newer-faster-cooler-nicer-stabler-hard-drive (aka hda1) without the need of a reinstall, and I was told that the only thing I needed was to create a partition in hda1, copy (cp -ax if I'm not mistaken) everything from / to the new place, update the /etc/fstab and /boot/grub/menu.lst and finally reinstall grub.

      But it wasn't that easy, I had to learn a lot of grub, initrd, kernel, filesystems, partitions and how to rescue the system from stupidity to (at last) do it the propper way (at least for me!)

      Here's what I did:

      (let's consider I had a empty /dev/hda, which I didn't but it'd be safer)

      -> Booted with the Gparted LiveCD
      -> Created a XFS partition in /dev/hda (/dev/hda1)
      -> Created a SWAP partition in /dev/hda (/dev/hda4)
      -> Marked hda1 with the bootable flag
      -> Copied everything from /dev/hdb1 to /dev/hda1 (through grsync which is included in the Gparted LiveCD), that was very nice, the interface is very straightforward and is much simpler to solve any error that with those odd-looking cp options mentioned above.
      -> Booted with Knoppix (so that I wouldn't mess with any of the roots I had installed)
      -> Installed GRUB:
      -> #grub
      -> root(hd0,0)
      -> setup(hd0)
      [so it installs in the MBR instead of the first sector of the drive (a BadThing(tm) for XFS)]
      -> Mounted the new partition
      -> #mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/hda1
      -> Fixed the new /etc/fstab
      -> #vim /mnt/hda1/etc/fstab
      Changed the /dev/hdb1 for /dev/hda1 and /dev/hdb2 for /dev/hda4
      [IMPORTANT] if you have for some reason any strange parameter for mounting the root partition (it was EXT3, thererefore I had "errors=remount-ro" in the options, and that simply doesn't work for XFS) please check in man mount the options for your filesystem.
      My /etc/fstab is now like this:

      # /etc/fstab: static file system information.
      #
      #
      proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
      /dev/hda1 / xfs defaults 0 1
      /dev/hda4 none swap sw 0 0
      sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0



      OK, so far it took a while to copy everything, but it's pretty simple, the next point is where I lost a lot of time on.

      I simply tried to rearange the /boot/grub/menu.lst so that it'd boot the kernel in the right partitition, but it would only boot it from /dev/hdb1, I didn'tknow why!! After all, the fstab was right...

      I then asked the right questions to google and I was enlighted with the answer: The INITRD has hardcoded the root partition link.

      So I tried several ways to rebuild a initrd (using yaird, mkinitrd, mkinitramfs) and NONE of them would work for me. So I was told to simply chroot into the new partition and install another kernel...

      Let's continue then.

      -> Chroot'd to the new partition:
      -> #chroot /mnt/hda1
      -> Mounted the proc and sys partitions:
      -> #mount proc -t proc /proc
      -> #mount sys -t sysfs /sys
      -> Installed another kernel:
      (if you still have the linux-image-2.X.X.X.deb in your apt cache dir, you can simply #dpkg-reconfigure linux-image-2.X.X.X and it will rebuild your initrd. I didn't had, and decided to upgrade my kernel anyway, so I did the following)
      -> # apt-get install linux-image-2.6.17-1-k7 linux-headers-2.6.17-1-k7 linux-source-2.6.17
      -> After the download (circa 60MB) the installer will create a new initrd (and load the root information from your new /etc/fstab), and mess your /boot/grub/menu.lst so I recomend you fix it:
      -> # vim /boot/grub/menu.lst
      -> make sure you have a option similar to this:

      title Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.6.17-1-k7
      root (hd0,0)
      kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.17-1-k7 root=/dev/hda1 ra vga=791
      initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.17-1-k7
      savedefault
      boot

      -> So, now simply umount everything and reboot
      -> #umount /proc
      -> #umount /sys
      -> #exit
      -> #reboot

      -> And boot to your new kernel and partition.

      It should work right now :)
                Pirates of the Caribbean - Two Soundtracks   
      When I was younger and the internet was a smaller place than it is today, one early hobby was browsing newsgroups searching fir Disney theme park audio. Most often scratchy things in a time when internet connections were still slow enough to make RealAudio an attractive possibility, there was nothing like spending the better part of a day trying to get one file, opening it up, and hearing something totally new to you. I heard Phantom Manor's soundtrack almost 20 years before I got to ride it, and I was listening to the Pirates of the Caribbean "Scare Me Music" long before I got to Disneyland in person. The sounds of the park, the musical soundtrack you could take home, were an early obsession - one that's played out on this blog before.

      But one early annoyance that's never fully gone away was: where are all of the Walt Disney World sounds? Disneyland music is everywhere - how many remixes of the Haunted Mansion do we really need, after all - but in the few cases where I could find music from Magic Kingdom, it often was either mislabeled Disneyland tracks, or versions from Disneyland often perfunctorily cut down and remixed. Where were the versions that tried to really capture the idiosyncrasies and unique flavors of each theme park?

      Well, as it turns out, I waited so long that I decided to do it myself. My initial attempt to preserve some of the unique atmosphere of Walt Disney World was posted in 2012, and its superior followup in 2014. But the project never really ended: much of the work I did on the Musical Souvenir between July 2011 and December 2014 was intended to lay the groundwork for more expanded audio mixes. Only a few of these bucket list items were feasible; I've still very proud of the restoration work I did on the 1984 version of Space Mountain, and the full Jungle Cruise soundtrack included in the second collection. But one item still bothered me, because I was so close to having a finished version: where was the complete Pirates of the Caribbean soundtrack for Magic Kingdom?

      In theory, this was not an impossible goal. Very little in the Florida attraction was not simply taken from the recording sessions for the original ride. My Caribbean Plaza track from the second release of the music project had the start and the end of the attraction - the unique pieces - but the whole stretch of the attraction in the middle had to be resolved. How do you decide to cut down all of that material?

      If you listen to the majority of audio mixes of Pirates of the Caribbean available online, you don't. The standard, agreed upon method is to play each and every track back to back. I've never liked this, because although it does allow you to hear everything, it also means that areas with a lot of overlapping, interlocking music cues, like the Haunted Mansion graveyard or the Burning City, go on for 6, 8, 10 minutes.

      What I like to do is to give as nearly as possible an approximation not of what was recorded, but of what you hear and experience when you are there, on the ride. This means letting the cues all bleed together, but also allowing moments where you can artistically stretch or compress other areas. It also means that I do want to hear incidental sounds in so far as they add to the experience - for the same reason that my reconstruction of If You Had Wings from 2011 didn't sound right until I added a lot of clattering 16mm projector sounds buried underneath the music.

      In the end, I tackled Disneyland's Pirates of the Caribbean first.

      There were two real goals here: first, to see how much I could extend the first third of the ride to really capture the atmosphere of that bayou and those caves, and to see how much I could tighten up the whole center section and keep it moving without losing the texture of the experience. I really admire how the Disneyland ride modulates its tones - going from the raucous burning city to the absolute quiet of the jail scene, for example - and I really wanted it capture that.

      I also decided it was worth including Old Bill, despite my goal to go back as near as possible to the original experience. Old Bill was designed by Marc for inclusion in the Florida show, and brought back over to Disneyland at some point after that version opened. Like the "bayou old man", himself a copy of Beacon Joe designed for Magic Kingdom, he's been there for so long that he may as well always been present.

      In Marc's own handwriting, no less.
      It all worked very well, especially the haunted grotto - aided and abetted by the dozens of live waterfall recordings I made to construct the Musical Souvenir. However, a hard drive crash meant that I lost a number of the sound files and was left with just the rough export version presented here, which is why there's a few render errors.

      And that was that - for a few years at least.

      The real thing holding me back from making the attempt was the complete unavailability of the Talking Skull safety announcement from the original version of the attraction. I never really liked the Magic Kingdom Talking Skull - his announcement was kind of lame and more often than not you could barely hear him under all of the howling wind and thunder in those much smaller caverns. I liked him even less after I saw the iconic Disneyland version. But he was an important part of the uniqueness of the Florida ride, and without him I saw no advantage in expanding on what I had already done in 2014.

      Then something unexpected happened. Magic Kingdom went and put a talking skull back in the ride.

      A different one, to be sure. But that got me thinking about the original 1973 talking skull - and whether I should try again to find a usable live recording. It's a total crap shoot whether or not you'll luck into one - it's all up to a kind of camera used to capture the footage, how loud people on the ride with the videographer are, how loud the attraction was that month, and more. It's bad enough considering it with today's modern cameras, but if you consider finding just the right one based on what came were available prior to 2006, you see how unlikely this is.

      I went looking anyway, searching backwards chronologically, until I hit 2003 - and a likely candidate, uploaded by "JPL1311". It was clean, mostly clear, and the Talking Skull was really loud. Once I stripped away the audio hiss using digital filters, I had something that sounded pretty close to a source audio mix. I figured it was worth a shot.

      So I went back into my files and pulled out the Caribbean Plaza track from 2014 and Disneyland Pirates track from 2015 and was able to combine them into something pretty darn convincing. As far as I know it is the first complete attraction soundtrack for the Florida Pirates of the Caribbean ever created.

      It was pretty interesting deciding where this track needed to vary meaningfully from the Disneyland track to get the desired effect across. What I can say is that the 1973 show has a much more complex soundscape from the Disneyland original - there's nearly no moments of quiet. I had to layer audio tracks much more aggressively in the haunted cavern to get the menacing atmosphere Marc Davis intended. And, of course, the whole thing ended up being a few seconds longer than the Disneyland mix - even if you don't actually get to the ride itself until nearly halfway through!

      But more than anything, it's just satisfying to hear, and to have. I try hard to really transport listeners in my tracks, and this one really takes me back to the Pirates of the Caribbean I knew as a kid. This version of the ride was also my preferred attraction to work back at the start of what passed for my career at Disney, so it's a cherished memory for me, and one I fought to preserve while I worked there.

      The talking skull may have returned, and the parrot may no longer be out front and the cannons on the roof don't fire, but at least we have this - I think it's almost as good as being there again.

                Solid State Drives vs Hard Disk Drives   
               

      Solid State Drives (SSD) have been increasingly appearing on cloud servers and are possibly the hard drives of the future. Traditional Hard Disk Drives (HDD) have a hard time keeping up processing speeds as they have reached the maximum potential for speed. SSD drives on the other hand can serve up content at a much faster rate, use less power but come with a higher price. 

      With software applications becoming more powerful pushing big data and using greater server side processing we see SSD drives as the way of the future for server builds. Our dedicated and some shared servers offer SSD and are blazing fast ( with large enterprise applications) in comparison to HDD. The question really comes down to what application or website you are looking to launch online. If it’s a standard website then HDD will work. If your application is looking to grow, scale and a integral part of your business then SDD might be a good consideration.

                Looking For Cheap Spyware Removal

      You can partition your Mac and boot another operating system alongside your current one. If you've always wanted to partition your Mac's hard drive so you can run a separate operating system — including macOS High Sierra — in tandem with your current one, it's surprisingly easy to do so thanks to Apple's built-in disk utility program.

                in my secret life   

       

       
      This update comes a little late, given we posted at the start of December, but the current weaving words into light collaboration between Sarah Mercer and myself, was inspired by Leonard Cohen's song, 'In My Secret Life'.

      With the arrival of the new year, I'm determined to make a stronger effort to post updates to my blog, whether in the form of new work I'm creating, or older images I've managed to now work through and edit.

      I managed to edit quite a lot of older work during the past year or so, but very little of it made it onto my blog, or even onto my website, so I hope to rectify that this year. Many of the posts will be image posts, but maybe I'll even manage some words here and there.

      2013 was a good year for the most part, though for much of it I felt like I was in a holding pattern:

      I made a conscious effort to minimise my shooting and concentrate on the mammoth backlog of images stored on my hard drives that had not been seen by anyone but myself. I managed to complete editing of thousands of photographs taken during a road trip in 2009, another road trip in 2010, and the majority of photographs taken during my residency at Hospitalfield in 2011. The bulk of posts to come will allow you to see that work.

      I'm still working through the self-portraits from my residency and working on creating my interior / exterior book, and I'll keep you updated on the progress of that.

      I was pleased to have my work exhibited in London for the first time in October, at the Printspace. That was definitely a highlight for me. I hope it will be only the first of many exhibitions here in the UK.

      My partner, Kyle, joined me in London in mid-July, which was a pretty momentous and long-anticipated event, after having been in London for 2.5 years already myself at that point. We are quite excited that in the next week or so we will move into a flat of our own, which will no doubt give a greater opportunity for new shoots. Effectively living in one overcrowded bedroom can tend to stifle one's inspiration.

      2014 is definitely feeling like a year of promising beginnings and it is upon my shoulders to ensure I maintain momentum. I am optimistic...

       


                Opiate Overdose -   

      NOT BLUEGRASS NOR TRADITIONAL BANJO MUSIC

      Originally recorded on the fly in 2013. REMASTERD TONIGHT (2017) from original avi and wave files just found on broken hard drive. Audio remasted from wave.  The video is updated a little to show the real overdose deaths, such as the one with the little kid looking on, while his parents lay extremely close to death in the car. Errrrr

      _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

      The news media claims some places in Ohio are running out of body bags due to all of the Opiate overdoses! So I found the original AVI videos and wave of this and remastered the audio/video. It's made for 2017 now, with better quality.  ;)


      Note: Listen real hard at the intro around 013 to - 018 -- I had a large parrot cage full of over 22 Zebra Finches that can be caught chirping between notes. They're dead but now, but thru the Internet they live on! The bird cage is covered in the video to my far left in the video.

      THANKS!

                FeedDemon, TopStyle, and Homesite   

      After playing w/ a couple of RSS readers I've come to love FeedDemon. This bad boy is developed by Bradsoft, the same company that originally created Homesite. FeedDemon's fast, easy to use, and includes tabbed browsing. It'll eventually be an app that you can purchase, but it's currently available free as a pre-release.
      The other readers I've played with include the built in reader in Radio Userland, Feedreader, and AmphetaDesk. Didn't like Radio and Ampheta. Both use your browser to hit against a mini web server app. Feedreader was alright, but craped out alot.

      Bradsoft also created TopStyle, which is a CSS editor. I use TopStyle Lite that comes bundled w/ Homesite + or I should say Dreamweaver. Haven't really played with TopStyle too much until this past week. Using CSS-P to layout an Intranet app. NO TABLES. Positioning w/ DIV's is a pain, but NO PAIN NO GAIN. ;)

      Homesite is under Macromedia's control now and is packaged together w/ Dreamweaver MX 2004. Dreamweaver seems like Word. Too many features. Slow to start. Feels like it's eating away at my RAM and polluting my hard drive when it starts. I just need a fast text editor that colors my code and helps me reduce typing. I hope Macromedia doesn't kill Homesite. Or hopefully it axes it and the tool gets back into BradSoft's hands.
      Another coding tool I recently tried is UltraEdit. Used it for an .asp based project, but haven't touched it since. It seemed very felxible and was a solid app. I missed my code completion ...

      It's all Homesite +, TopStyle Lite, and FeedDemon now. All Bradbury originated tools. My tool god! ALL HAIL BradSoft!!

      What's in your tool kit?

      Micro$oft had a HUGE area for Office. Mini-seminar brain-washing techniques in full swing. How much more crap can they put into this monster bloatware. XML this, XML that ... the crowd doesn't even know WTF XML IS!!! I had to include my little anti-M$ rant.
      Sony has a kewl little video player hard drive. Kinda like an iPod. KoKoRo blogged about already ... again. Damn, this boy's on it. Well, I guess since I'm like a couple of weeks delayed on some of these postings. Gotta get myself in tuned. Too bad Apple wasn't here, but this is a Pee Cee expo. 2bad. (> <)

                Symantec shares Potential Motives behind Petya Ransomware attacks   
      Symantec has confirmed that MEDoc, a tax and accounting software package, is used for the initial insertion of Petya into corporate networks. MEDoc is accounting software that is widely used in the Ukraine, indicating that organizations in that country were the primary target. After gaining an initial foothold, Petya then uses a variety of methods to spread across corporate networks.


      Petya is a worm, meaning it has the ability to self-propagate. It does this by building a list of target computers and using two methods to spread to those computers.
      ·         Lateral movement:
      o    Execution across network shares: It attempts to spread to the target computers by copying itself to [COMPUTER NAME]\\admin$ using the acquired credentials. It is then executed remotely using either PsExec or the Windows Management Instrumentation Command-line (WMIC) tool. Both are legitimate tools.
      o    SMB exploits: It attempts to spread using variations of the EternalBlue and EternalRomance exploits.
      ·         Petya builds a list of IP addresses to spread to, which includes primarily addresses on the local area network (LAN) but also remote IPs. Once the list of target computers has been identified, Petya builds out a list of user names and passwords it can use to spread to those targets. The list of user names and passwords is stored in memory.

      • Initial infection:
        • Petya is initially executed via rundll32.exe using the following command: rundll32.exe perfc.dat, #1
        • Once the DLL has been loaded, it will first attempt to remove itself from the infected system. This is done by opening the file and overwriting its contents with null bytes before finally deleting the file from disk. Overwriting the file with null bytes is used as an attempt to thwart recovery of the file using forensic techniques.
      • MBR infection and encryption:
        • Once installed, Petya proceeds to modify the master boot record (MBR). This allows it to hijack the normal loading process of the infected computer during the next system reboot. The modified MBR is used to encrypt the hard disk while simulating a CHKDSK screen. It then displays a ransom note to the user.
      • Full blog post here.

      Petya outbreak: What’s the motive behind this major cyber attack?
      • Sometimes the obvious answer is the right one:
        • The person or persons behind the attack were technically capable and were attempting to compromise a choice group of financial targets that may be more likely to pay a ransom, as they would need to regain access to important financial records.
        • The attacker may not be a particularly smart criminal, however, as using a single bitcoin wallet, and a single e-mail account for contact, was not the best way to get payment. 
        • The e-mail account was rapidly suspended by its provider, thus disabling the ability of the attacker to interact with victims. 
      • There may be a more nefarious motive behind the attack, that is, disruption:
        • Similar to Killdisk, perhaps this attack was never intended to make money, rather to simply disrupt a large number of organizations. Launching an attack that would wipe victim hard drives would achieve the same effect, however, that would be an overtly aggressive action. Effectively wiping hard drives through the pretense of ransomware confuses the issue, leaving victims and investigators to ask: “Are the attackers politically motivated, or criminally motivated?”
        • Based on the current data, the motive behind the Petya attacks may be the second option. This attack was an ineffective way to make money, but a very effective way to disrupt victims, and sow confusion.

      I was originally enrolled into the GETTY IMAGES collection as a contributor on April 9th 2012, and when links with FLICKR were terminated in March 2014, I was retained and fortunate enough to be signed up via a second contract, both of which have proved to be successful with sales of my photographs all over the world now handled exclusively by them.




      On November 12th 2015 GETTY IMAGES unveiled plans for a new stills upload platform called ESP (Enterprise Submission Platform), to replace the existing 'Moment portal', and on November 13th I was invited to Beta test the new system prior to it being officially rolled out in December. (ESP went live on Tuesday December 15th 2015 and has smoothed out the upload process considerably).


      With visits now in excess of 19.009 Million to my FLICKR site, used primarily these days as a fun platform to reach friends and family as I have now sold my professional gear and now take a more leisurely approach to my photographic exploits, I would like to say a huge and heartfelt 'THANK YOU' to FLICKR, GETTY IMAGES and everyone who drops by.

      This is another blog post about backing up data, and protecting your images. Why? Because if it means just one reader doesn’t lose all their family photos to the digital abyss, it will be worthwhile. Hard disks have a finite lifespan. This is probably going to be around 3 to 5 years. If, for example, you only store your family photos on your laptop, when it dies (and it will) you will lose all your images or have to pay a lot of money to a data recovery firm to try and get back your treasured memories. Back up your computer at home, and ideally have another off-site backup just in case of a disaster such as theft, fire or flood that takes both hard drive and back up drive. Back up at home. If you’ve got an Apple computer use the Time Machine application. All you need is an external hard disk that is significantly larger than the total of your computers internal hard drives.

                Windows 7 - Booting from a VHD   

      Originally posted on: http://geekswithblogs.net/workdog/archive/2009/10/14/135472.aspx

       

      I’m attempting to create a duel boot on my laptop using a VHD of Windows 7.  I heard you could do this, but then I found this great article on http://www.SevenForums.com that describes it in great detail -  How to Create and Attach a Virtual Hard Disk in Windows 7

      I’ve already created the VHD of Windows 7.  That seemed extremely painless, but extremely unintuitive if it wasn’t for this article.  I believe you have the ability to map to your original hard drive as a network share.  

      The great thing about this is that you can run the VHD as if it’s a physical hard drive.  You do not have to reserve part of your resources for the host.  The ideal situation in my mind is to a separate virtual for every member of the family, with a common network share.  If you buy a new box, you can just move the VHD to the new box.  If one of the kids gets a virus, you just rebuild their VHD, not yours.  Sounds ideal, with out exception…. You need a license for each.  I haven’t checked yet, but I’m hoping it’s like vista ultimate where you can have multiple virtual on one license as long as it runs on the same box. 

      I’ll post more as I go through this. 

      Cheers,

      John Workman

      Today has been an interesting day.  The hard drive on my laptop died.  It has been acting up for a few days and I kept saying "I need to back everything up before it dies".  Well, that didn't happen and it's dead.  I went down to our IT group to see if that had any utilities to help me out.  Make a mental picture of this.... It's around 4pm on a friday afternoon.  I walk in and say that my hard drive is dead.  They said, "Oh, we should put it in the freezer for the weekend and we'll check it out on monday."  I trust these guys, but at a glance this looks like "don't bother me on friday afternoon, let's wait until monday."  Well, there is no way I can wait until monday, so I brought the drive home and figured I could try it out here.  I just googled this and found out that there is some truth to this method.  Right now as I type this email (on my desktop), my hard drive is in the fridge "chillin out".  Wish me luck!   I'll let you know if this works out for me.

      I just got a new Dell laptop with Core 2 duo T7200 2GHz, 1 GB ram @ 667mhz, ATI X1400, and Vista home basic. It was running slow, so I set out to improve performance. I uninstalled ALL the bloatware, disabled windows defender, UAC, sidebar, security center, indexing, and all other services/software that were non-essential. I disabled all visual themes and selected "adjust for best performance." It ran a little bit faster, but nowhere near my 4 year old XP machine with p4 2.4ghz, 512 ram, and Geforce2 32MB. I run apache, ftp, and mysql on my XP machine, and I can have 20 high demand applications running as well as high demand on my server without noticing any slowdown. The programs I use most on the Vista laptop are Visual Studio 2005, IE7, windows mail, and media player. This is all MS software, so there shouldn't be compatability issues. It still runs slow, with the biggest lags in windows explorer, switching between programs, launching programs (especially IE), and doing file IO. Even saving small files results in a slight hang. The hard drive is plenty fast as evidenced through file transfers and vista's own rating. The fact is, all other parameters having been eliminated, Vista is SLOW, so I will be loading XP so I can realize the full speed of my computer. Also, as a developer, all the execution permissions are really annoying. When I'm developing and debugging apps I don't want to have to think about "run as admin," or "run in ** compatibility mode."

                Recent ‘ARK: Survival Evolved’ Updates Hit Xbox One, New Crafting Skill Plus Lots Of Bug Fixes And More   

      A Therizino in ARK: Survival Evolved.

      ARK: Survival Evolved for the Xbox One received a major update late Friday that combines the last two PC patches into one. This brings a huge list of bug fixes to the open-world dinosaur survival game along with some significant changes like a new skill for crafting and one-time re-spec of all characters, a new sabertooth model, and more.

      Update 756 is available to download now for ARK: Survival Evolved Xbox One owners. It is approximately 16.6 GB so plan your download and hard drive space accordingly.

      While the Xbox One update was able to make it out of certification quickly, the PS4 version was not. The same update for Sony’s console will likely land early next week. Both consoles will receive the new Ragnarok map in a separate update currently scheduled for Tuesday, July 4.

                Part 2 - Getting my parts out and playing with them   
      With all the kit safely back at base, it was time to put it all together. What were the chances that the kit would power up let alone let me put a firewall on it? Surprisingly (for me at least) it came up first time.

      Now the thing about this solution is that it's all going to have to squeeze in to a small box and I didn't want to put it all together only to find that some hardware configuration or limitation (i.e. supported hardware issue) meant I needed to open it up again. So as soon as I could get the bare bones operational, I decided to find a firewall distribution that met the criteria and give it a whirl.






      Must have:
      • NAT firewall with spi
      • IP blocking features allowing single IP or IP range blocking - (without the 20 or so rule limit I had on my router!!!!)
      • Port forwarding
      • PPP support - I need it to connect to my ethernet modem and log me on to the net
      • SQUID. (I didn't really need this but it was an itch I've been meaning to scratch for ages) - preferrably transparent.
      • Good logging features
      • Be able to run on a reletively low power system without dragging down my surfing experience.
      Dream team:
      • IPSEC VPN endpoint functionality
      • Pretty graphs
      • Good community support (do not undervalue this aspect)
      • NTP, DHCP and DNS (in case I ever decide to consolidate these services away from my existing systems)
      • Intrusion Detection System (IDS) ... another 'want to play with' thing.
      • QOS so that when my kids grow up - I can QOS their bandwidth hogging activities out of existence
      • IM proxy. Again, when my kids grow up I'll need to snoop - err responsibly monitor who they're talking to.
      I trawled my backside off looking through the various features - seeing what did the trick. M0n0wall looked like a fantastic development able to run on skinny kit but didn't appear to have the web proxy functionality I was looking for. Untangle also looked quite tasty but I was put off with the beefy (ok - non wimpy) hardware requirements.

      Much more up my street were IPCOP and Smoothwall Express. Both scored highly and it was hard to choose between them. Being technically minded, I went for IPCOP because my Dad was a copper back in the day - and somewhere in the back of my head the name gave me the impression of The Sweeney meets Tron. That's how the IT decisions are made when I'm spending the money!

      So I downloaded the latest release from sourceforge, burnt the disk and fired it up. Remember what I said above about supported hardware issues? Well that's where IPCOP fell on its arse for me in the first instance. It's not everybodys experience but I couldn't get it to run on my kit. It appeared for all the world to me that during the installer process, IPCOP was looking for the install files from my SATA disk rather than the CDROM with the install disk in. Actually - I proved this for myself by breaking in to a console session and browsing the device it was trying to read from - which was my SATA drive. The community advice was 'search the forum for SATA'. Something that showed mixed success.

      I'm not going to knock the regional cummunity support forum but suffice to say I didn't get the warm fuzzies from it! I wasn't expecting flowers or anything but, well ..

      So there I was with a dining room table full of hardware and one option left. Time for Smoothwall Express. The name wasn't as funky but the base functionality was pretty close (IPCOP being a fork of Smoothwall by all accounts). Would it run on my cobbled hardware or would I have some explaining to do to my wife when we examined the accounts!?

      To start with, the answer was no! *cry* For a moment I thought I had compatibility issues when the installed keeled over repeatedly with an obscure message at the end of the file installation process. But checking the md5sum gave surprising results and it transpired that my iso was corrupted. A first for me. After a second download and a successful md5sum check - the next attempt worked like a dream.

      The wrong kind of chips on this dining table (according to me wife at least!!!) The farmhouse dining table and chairs gave it a Star Wars meets the Waltons feel.












      And if you think I'm going to narrate my firewall configuration across the blogosphere you can, of course, forget it. There's plenty of time to comment on Smoothwall in later blog sessions after a healthy evaluation.

      With the harmonious union of hardware and software witnessed in front of the creator, it was time to build them a house before the honeymoon could commence. In this world though, considering the economic climate, credit crunch and the high price of accommodation - it would have to be a humble dwelling.

      If you've seen my first entry then you will have seen the 'Urban Myth' game box that I proposed to turn in to a case. How had I come to the conclusion that it would do the job? I tipped out the cards and checked to see if the mobo would fit inside. That was the scope of my groundwork! The last time I worked with metal was approx 22 years ago back in school when I made a two piece replica concorde. All I had at my disposal this time was a medium sized hand drill, a small pair of wire clippers and a pair of sturdy scissors - swiped from the kitchen. Before long I had made a few 'functional' modifications to the case.

      Before








      Almost certainly after .. unless the event was subject to a time paradox. Look closely - two holes - as the actress said to the bishop.

















      Now the parts have to be fixed to the case. First off - the PicoPSU power supply. Do I fix it in a practical position - or somewhere stupid & impractical but slightly amusing?

      That's what your face looks like when you have a PicoPSU wired in an impractical place. Suit your sir! oooh!


















      Almost in focus. I think the 'shiny behind' had a dazzling effect!













      Funny (mildly) but in a space efficient environment - not very clever! Next - fasten the mobo to the case.

      A bit wonkey but it fits and there is still hope to cram the rest of the bits in.













      With the PSU wired in and the mobo fitted - all that was left was to slot in the hard drive (somewhere) and shut the thing together. I managed to squeeze the drive in to the lid without too much issue. Closing the case was about a third of the job though!! It turns out that I had set a world record for owning the worlds most inflexible SATA lead. Lucky for me I had a draw packed full of the things - every one of them at least twice as flexible as the one I had chosen earlier!

      The professional job on the metal work had introduced a certain amount of fatigue to the structure. It closed well enough but the chicken in me compelled me to add a bit of tape to ensure integrity. And here it is - the final product. Ladies and gentlemen - may I present to you, the Urban Myth Smoothwall.


      What tape?

      Closing comments - it's alive!! It will probably need a bit of further refinement to secure the case in order to remove the tape. As for a 533mhz system with 256 MB of memory running smoothwall and squid - for home use it's bloody fantastic.

                Part 1 - A firewall Valerie Singleton would be proud of ...   

      Double sided sticking tape (check) - loo roll (check) - old washing up liquid bottle (check) - dog named 'Shep' (check) .... OK, we're ready. Now you may need an adult to help you with this .......

      Anyone who's discovered Linux will probably have gone through the same curve that I have. "What? An O/S for free?" - "I don't understand - why so many distributions!?" - "So most of the internet runs on this?" - "I just jab in apt-get and it ends up on my box?!". All this is great, but for me, the biggest thing about the GNU revolution has to be that it changes us from dumb consumers to controlling creators.

      Let's say for example that you bought yourself a firewall router. You pimped your arse out all week for your pound or dollar - picked your make and model, only to find that it has poor firmware (that bricks your box), and some really cheap limitations that hinder the scope of its use. At least that was my most recent experience. What do you do? Buy another one in the hope you're not let down again? Or perhaps you make your own! Consumer or creator?

      Frankly, I've gone through about five firewall routers in as many years and, cheap or pricey, I've not been entirely happy with any of them (fussy fussy). Combining a few years exposure to open source radiation with some rabid ebaying would surely be a recipie for success? The prospect was tempting and Linux being as versitile as it is, there were bound to be a multitude of distro's ready to take up residence on my hard drive.

      OK, so if you're going to do this there is probably a right way and a wrong way. I imagine the right way to be a) Draw up a list of requirements - b) Pick the software that meets those requirements - c) Check the hardware compatibility list and then buy / build the kit. But I had read the propaganda and had bought into the mantra that told me that I could throw any old hardware together and come up with a solution. That suited me fine because it meant I could be guided by cost rather than need, safe in the knowledge that somehow it would work - right?

      In terms of the hardware, I wanted small / low power / low cost.

      Required hardware:



      • A case
      • A motherboard with at least two nics.
      • A small hard drive
      • Memory
      • Suitable PSU
      • Adapter

      After a bit of poking around on e-bay I managed to find an integrated motherboard with two nics and a 533 Mhz VIA Mark processor for £30. Bargain. See for yourself: http://www.jenlogix.co.nz/products/wafer-mark.htm

      The SATA controllers on the wafer-mark meant that I could make use of a spare Seagate 2.5" hard drive that I had recently hatched from it's external USB housing. Curiosity got the better of me on that one. Like a Kinder egg - I had to crack it open for the toy.

      I decided that I wasn't going to spend more than £10 on memory and managed to get 256 MB of pc 133 for the price.

      Finding a DC DC PSU and an adapter was a real pain in the backside - mainly because the whole thing was an education for me. I picked up a 12V 90W PicoPSU-90 brand new from Linitx.com (nothing cheap enough on ebay) which will provide much more power than I need. That was another £30 (ish). The 4 pin molex would provide the +5v but being an ATX PSU - it would need to be tricked by adding a home made jumper between a couple of the pins (read up and undertake at your own risk).

      Back to ebay for the 12v 5a Adapter plus a 2.1mm to 2.5mm barrel adapter (needed to fit the power point on the PicoPSU). Another £15 ish.

      So that's £85 I've forked out already even with the free hard drive. Being a tight arse and also bathing in the inspirational light of the mini-itx projects page I decided I would find something around the house to mod as a case. The prices for the tiny cases were just too much. After a great deal of hunting around in cupboards and head scratching, I found a card game called 'Urban Myth' that happened to be packaged in a handy mini-itx sized aluminium case.

      Now for some pictures:

      WAFER-MARK 533 - With a couple of juicy nics *drool*
      Note the two USB ports over on the left side. Although only USB 1.1 - you need a way to deliver the O/S to the system. Trust me - telepathy isn't a great medium for transferring data to disk.












      URBAN MYTH - The card game - and now the firewall !!!
      Take a look at that mouth. It comes in handy later.














      Kinder egg toy or hard drive? You decide!

      Although the SATA cable appears to obscure the picture - the artists amongst us will know that it lies on the Golden Section and therefore is mathematically guaranteed to be a work of art.












      Well - that's the hardware procured. Next - instalment - putting it all together.

                NAS! Which one?   

      If you want a physical NASdevice, I would not go any further than QNAP. They are simply the best. With 150 users I would suggest a TS-439 or if you can afford it, the TS-459 which is the same thing but a faster CPU. Just buy 4x 7200RPM hard drives and slot them in. 500GB drives are the obvious choice and gives you about 1.4TB in RAID 5 but I would suggest just grabbing 1TB units as they are so cheap now.

      If you have an old server, they are perfect for this sort of thing on a budget. I would suggest that most older rackmounts like DL380's etc will only have 6x 72GB U320 drives at most, which will not meet storage requirements. Even 6x 147GB drives only provides ~720GB of space in RAID5 which isn't to spec either. So newer, larger U320 drives would need to be purchased and they are expensive.

      With all things NASand RAID, the data you...


                NAS! Which one?   

      Honestly, my NAS experience has been horrible-- two different models of Iomega running various versions of Windows.

      The problem is that you think you're paying for a specialized file-delivery appliance without any of the extras, but what you're really getting is a shitty motherboard/cpu/ram combo and some overpriced hard drives.

      My recommendation: just make a standard Windows file server, if you run Windows. It'll do the same things, but better. Upgrading hard drives will be easy.  AD integration and everything else will be easier. You won't be cursing the appliance vendor at every turn. If cost is a concern, test out FreeNAS, see if it works, and if so build a cheapo PC from Newegg. You'll probably come out ahead.

                Dropbox and Slack Roll out New Features   

      Dropbox and Slack, two well-known and widely used cloud-based products, have rolled out new features to attract more customers.

      The common theme among the new changes is scaling the existing products to work for the entire company instead of just a small team or group. Currently, both these services have a common weakness, which is their tendency to create fragmentation and reinforce silos because only a small group of workers can adopt them for their own use. Typically, it’s only for a team or an informal group of workers who have to collaborate together.

      Though the existing features make it convenient for small groups of people to use them, it creates problems for IT departments as the existing features do not support a company-wide collaboration and use. That has changed with these new enhancements.

      Dropbox’s new feature called “Dropbox Smart Sync” allows users to view all the files stored in the cloud, in their local machine as well. This way, the storage space needed in local machines can remain the same, and yet users can browse through unlimited data, and even download just what they want. An example released by the company shows that users working with just 128 GB of hard drive space can browse through terabytes of data to find what they want. Once they identify the file they want, they can simply download it to their local machine. Earlier, users needed a web browser to log in and view files, but those additional steps are not needed now.

      Another new feature from Dropbox is called “Paper”, that is expected to provide a flexible platform for employees of different departments to collaborate with each other for creating, reviewing, and editing documents within an organization. Both these features encourage a company-wide access, rather than just small groups.

      Like Dropbox, Slack has also expanded its features. The Slack Enterprise Grid allows companies to create an unlimited number of workspaces, so different groups can work together, and at the same time can collaborate across different groups. Currently, only a single workspace exists for the entire organization. While this may work for an organization with about 500 employees, it can get too overwhelming for an organization with say 20,000 employees. To overcome this restriction, Slack’s new features make it convenient to create many small workspaces, so it can be scaled for the entire organization as well.

      This feature comes with an administrative layer to help wrap everything together and to manage all the different workspaces and communications. All this means, as an employee, you can find employees who are in other departments and workspaces and collaborate with them if you have to. But, you won’t have to read through all the messages that transpire in the other groups.

      These new features from both Dropbox and Slack augur well for users, and more importantly, it shows a growing and maturing cloud market. The rolling out of such features means these companies are eyeing for a larger market share and want to stay on top of competition. Such developments are sure [...]

                Windows 7 - Booting from a VHD   

      Originally posted on: http://workdog.org/archive/2009/10/14/135472.aspx

       

      I’m attempting to create a duel boot on my laptop using a VHD of Windows 7.  I heard you could do this, but then I found this great article on http://www.SevenForums.com that describes it in great detail -  How to Create and Attach a Virtual Hard Disk in Windows 7

      I’ve already created the VHD of Windows 7.  That seemed extremely painless, but extremely unintuitive if it wasn’t for this article.  I believe you have the ability to map to your original hard drive as a network share.  

      The great thing about this is that you can run the VHD as if it’s a physical hard drive.  You do not have to reserve part of your resources for the host.  The ideal situation in my mind is to a separate virtual for every member of the family, with a common network share.  If you buy a new box, you can just move the VHD to the new box.  If one of the kids gets a virus, you just rebuild their VHD, not yours.  Sounds ideal, with out exception…. You need a license for each.  I haven’t checked yet, but I’m hoping it’s like vista ultimate where you can have multiple virtual on one license as long as it runs on the same box. 

      I’ll post more as I go through this. 

      Cheers,

      Today has been an interesting day.  The hard drive on my laptop died.  It has been acting up for a few days and I kept saying "I need to back everything up before it dies".  Well, that didn't happen and it's dead.  I went down to our IT group to see if that had any utilities to help me out.  Make a mental picture of this.... It's around 4pm on a friday afternoon.  I walk in and say that my hard drive is dead.  They said, "Oh, we should put it in the freezer for the weekend and we'll check it out on monday."  I trust these guys, but at a glance this looks like "don't bother me on friday afternoon, let's wait until monday."  Well, there is no way I can wait until monday, so I brought the drive home and figured I could try it out here.  I just googled this and found out that there is some truth to this method.  Right now as I type this email (on my desktop), my hard drive is in the fridge "chillin out".  Wish me luck!   I'll let you know if this works out for me.

                Doctor Web: we have already encountered similar infection methods   

      June 29, 2017

      According to some Internet sources, it was reported that Trojan.Encoder.12544 penetrated an operating system using an update program of the application MEDoc, which is designed for taxation management. This encryption worm is also known as Petya, Petya.A, ExPetya and WannaCry-2. Doctor Web specialists have already encountered the similar distribution method of malicious programs before, and they know how to avoid such incidents in future.

      Security researchers, who examined Trojan.Encoder.12544, inform that the original source of the Trojan was an update system of the program MEDoc. This program helps Ukrainian users in taxation management. The security researchers found that a tool named EzVit.exe, included in the MEDoc distribution kit and designed to update the main application, executed a CMD command at one point. This command launched the download of a malicious library. The main functionality of Trojan.Encoder.12544 was implemented in this library. Given that this encryption ransomware spreads via a network independently using a vulnerability in the SMB protocol and steals Windows user account data, further distribution of the infection is a matter of just one infected machine.

      Back in 2012, Doctor Web security researchers detected a targeted attack on drugstores and pharmaceutical companies with the use of malicious program called BackDoor.Dande. This spyware Trojan stole information about a medication procurement from special programs used in the pharmaceutical industry. Once launched, the backdoor checked a system for presence of relevant applications for procurement and recording of purchase of medication and, if there weren’t any, it would shut down. More than 2800 drugstores and Russian pharmaceutical companies became victims of the infection. Thus, it is a fair assumption to say that BackDoor.Dande was used for business espionage.

      Doctor Web specialists have conducted an investigation that lasted as many as 4 years. One of the affected companies provided its hard drives compromised by BackDoor.Dande. Our analytics determined the creation date of a driver that launched all other backdoor components. This driver was mentioned in the Windows paging file and log of Avast anti-virus, which was installed on the infected machine. Analysis of these files showed that the malicious driver was created right after a launch of an application called ePrica (D:\ePrica\App\PriceCompareLoader.dll). This application was developed by a company called “Spargo Tekhnologii”. It allows executives of drugstores to analyze medication prices and to choose the best supplier. Examination of ePrica allowed to determine that it loads a library into the system. This library covertly downloads, decrypts and launches BackDoor.Dande. The Trojan was downloaded from http://ws.eprica.ru. This website belonged to “Spargo Tekhnologii” and was designed to update ePrica. In addition, the module that covertly downloaded the malicious program had the valid digital signature “Spargo”. The Trojan loaded stolen data to servers located outside Russia. In other words, just as Trojan.Encoder.12544, the backdoor was “hidden” in the update module of the program.

      screenshot Trojan.Encoder.12544 #drweb

      Similarity of these cases shows that infrastructure of the software development requires a heightened level of awareness in terms of information security. To begin with, update process of any commercial software must be performed with a close attention of developers themselves and users. Some update tools of different programs have rights to install and launch executable files in an operating system. It can be an unexpected source of infection. In case of MEDoc, the infection was caused by the hack of cybercriminals and compromise of the update server. In the occasion of BackDoor.Dande, specialists assume that spread of infection was caused by deliberate actions of insiders. This method could be used by cybercriminals to conduct an effective aimed attack on users of practically any software.


                Comment on System76 unveils its own Ubuntu-based Linux distribution called 'Pop!_OS' by Film@11   
      And I just spent two hours looking for a replacement System76 laptop mainboard. I didn't find one :/ Turns out, like Sager, they are using either Clevo or Compal or MSI to build their laptops. System76 is just one of many 2nd and 3rd tier laptop "manufacturers" out there that slap RAM, WiFi cards and a hard drive into a laptop built by an ODM in Taiwan, of they also put a System76 logo badge on it. The only thing that makes the System76 interesting is that they ship Linux exclusively. IMHO, if they decide to go with their own fork of Ubuntu they just got a lot less interesting. There are far too many barely supported forks of Linux out there now. I'd much rather see them continue with an LTS version of Ubuntu or Fedora.

                How to Move Your Windows Personal Files to a Different Drive   
      Have a second hard drive and want to move your personal Windows files and content there? Here’s how. You have a PC with two hard drives. And you want to move your personal files and certain content from your C drive to your D drive to keep them separate from your Windows system files. Yep, that’s doable, though it does involve a few steps. You have to redirect each folder to its new location so Windows knows where you’ve put it. And you have to tell your various applications, such as Microsoft Office, that your documents and files will be housed in different default folders. But if you follow the right steps, your personal files will rest soundly in their new location, and Windows and your applications will know just where to find them. Windows creates a Users folder to store subfolders for anyone who has an account on a PC. The folder for your account is home to an array of files and other data, including your contacts, your desktop icons, your favorite webpages, your downloads, your documents, your music, your pictures, your videos, and more. By default, your Users folder is created on your C drive right off … Read More »

                Michael Hill: Giving an OS the space it demands   

      My favourite CAD software used to run on at least ten different platforms, including my trusty SGI Indy. There was even a Linux student version. Evidently the market spoke, and for nearly twenty years the software has been Windows-only.

      Between IRIX and Linux, I’ve never had a need to allow Windows across the threshold (not least because I could get my fill by going to work). Six years ago I needed to run the CAD software at home again, so I bit the bullet, bought a Windows DVD and started dual-booting it on a desktop machine.

      Sensing the completion of the work, the hard drive died, and I dismantled the computer. When I needed to reinstall the CAD software this year for some freelance work, I used the DVD to install Windows into Boxes on my laptop. In the spirit of the Bill Gates quote that never happened, I specified twice as much disk space as I could ever imagine needing. Naturally, the OS and app together consumed the alotted disk space to within a few kilobytes. I needed to resize.

      The Red Hat and Fedora Guest Resizing pages were nearly what I wanted, but my libguestfs tools are too new, the first partition is already a good size, and my second partition isn’t a logical volume. Here’s what worked (as usual, if there’s a better way please set me straight):

      cd ~/.local/share/libvirt/images
      mv Win7.qcow2 Win7.backup
      qemu-img create -f qcow2 Win7.qcow2 100G
      virt-df -h ./Win7.backup
      virt-resize ./Win7.backup ./Win7.qcow2 --expand /dev/sda2

      Since the drive resizing I’ve been able to downgrade the CAD software to an earlier version, so 40 GB probably would have been plenty. I think I’ll leave it, though, because my laptop is relatively new and has all the disk space I could ever need.

      The lesson might appear to be Windows’ disinclination to be contained, but a licensing issue with the CAD software took a few weeks to resolve. In the interim I continued to do remarkable things with FreeCAD. I’ll use the proprietary software for details related to transferring the files, but FreeCAD is very close to keeping my CAD experience Windows-free.


                Ultimate coder challenge blog #1   
      Intel has invited me to participate in their Ultimate code challenge, so for the next 7 weeks i will be working on supporting some cool new tech and blog about it on intels developer site. For people not reading it, I will repost everything here too. Your PC is an amazing peace of kit, it’s amazing because no other computing platform is as versatile and no other platform is so open for innovation. You can buy hardware for it from thousands of vendors, you can hook it up to just about any display or input device and you can make it do just about anything. While maybe no longer being the latest buzzword, the combination of screen, mouse and keyboard, is still the best way to be productive, get a headshot or to create the next software wonder. Whatever cool mobile app or console game you think is the hot stuff, it was conceived on a PC. If we could only choose one computing platform it would have be the PC, for the simple fact that no other platform could exist without the PC. But all is not well in the PC world. If it was, then how is it that my Amiga 1200 was able to boot from power on to desktop in less than 2 seconds when it takes the better part of a minute to do so on my i7 Machine with a 500meg+ a second SSD? How is it that when I type in text in to a modern word processor it sometimes lags behind when it didn't on the Commodore 64? How is it that it takes a minute to search for a file on my PC hard drive when Google can search the entire internet in a fraction of a second? How is it that Facebook remembers every click I make, but my own computer can’t remember where I left off the movie I was watching last night? While Intel and others have done an amazing job shrinking down processor wiring down to the thickness of a few atoms and making processors able to do billions of operations per second, we as software developers haven't really done our part making the software. While the tablet or phone operating systems have yet to become platforms where I can get proper work done, or do complex tasks like say having two browser windows open on the same screen, I think the PC needs more attention. It should not be seen as technology of the past but as a starting point for where we want to go. What we really want is to have the openness and flexibility of the PC everywhere. Our phones, tablets, laptops, workstations, TVs, even walls should all be PCs so that we can freely move software, files and tasks from one to the other and never let the hardware form factor dictate what software we can run on the device. What we should have is software that transcends the physical hardware. The interfaces we have on the PCs aren’t really adapted well to work on a wide variety of devices. While we want to keep the open nature of PC hardware, we need to change our software design so that the desktop of the future would no longer be familiar to someone using a Xerox Alto in 1973. We need a new paradigm for the PC. My goal with this challenge is to show what the PC could be, how we can develop software that can run well on a range of different hardware setups, from screen resolutions to input devices. Intel has provided me with some great new hardware, and I intend to show just how great PC software can be for these devises, if we only spent the time to develop it rather than just focusing on closed platforms. There are many things to improve but with only 7 weeks I will focus on building a framework for graphical interfaces. I will apply this work on at least 3 different applications. A game, a data visualizer and creative tool. I will be writing an open source software layer that makes it easy for any developers to make use of the diverse hardware available to us, and makes it possible for hardware vendors to experiment with new hardware configurations, without forcing us as developers to rewrite our applications in order to take advantage of them. If we are going to consider how to write applications that are independent of hardware, we first need to consider the types of usage scenarios and pros and cons of different input devices and how they should be supported. If we are going to write applications that can run on almost any form factor with any kind of input device, we need to think about the limitations and opportunities it creates. To begin we should probably assume that the device has some kind of pointing input device, so we want to create an API that unifies the concept of pointing, disregarding if its multi-touch, a mouse, a Wii remote style device or (god forbid) a track pad. If we are stuck with a non-pointing input device like a joy pad, we need to figure out a way to make applications useful anyway. We should also figure out a way to support an "escape" with every interface. This could be something like the windows key, or the iOS home button, something that can always be accessed to connect with the operating system. We also want to support very wide range of display sizes and resolutions. All the way from your phone to large displays that may cover and entire wall. Large enough displays means that we want multiuser support too. That creates some interesting challenges since we can no longer assume that two multi touch events are triggered by the same person trying to accomplish the same task. We also must consider that the user many not be able to reach all parts of the screen, so we can’t have any static menus or buttons, like a start menu, taskbar, dock or Apple menu. We will need to solve most of these things with popup menus. We should obviously support a keyboard, but we should also provide some kind of pointing based fall back for typing. To display our interface we should not assume that the pixel resolution in anyway corresponds to the size of the interface. All interface elements should therefore be vectorized and scalable. We also want to support an interface that takes in to account the users view angle, this means the interface must be 3D. If we build a 3D interface we can easily support stereoscopic displays, head tracking, head mounted displays or augmented reality applications. This first week I will dedicate to building an API that will be able to provide application developers with all these things and also let hardware vendors make drivers for it. Next week I will talk about how I go about doing this. It’s going to be a fun ride! Cheers E

                GONNA NEED A BIGGER HARD DRIVE:   
      Mixing Politics with Business: A Master List of Trump's Conflicts of Interest (Kate Brannen, June 30, 2017, just Security)

      Remember that giant pile of manila folders?

      They were stacked high at Donald Trump's press conference on Jan. 11. While no one was allowed to take a closer look at them, the unlabeled folders were said to contain the documents that Trump had signed in order to hand over control of his business to his two sons, Don Jr. and Eric.

      The move was supposed to free Trump of any conflicts of of interest as he became president, or at least give the appearance that he'd done that. Sheri Dillon, of the law firm Morgan Lewis, said at the January press conference that Trump had asked her firm to design a structure that would "completely isolate him from the management of the company." As part of this arrangement no new foreign deals would be made while Trump was president. New domestic deals would be allowed but would undergo vigorous vetting, according to Dillon. Trump would limit how much information about the business could be shared with him. And the Trump Organization, through its social media and marketing materials, would not refer to Trump as president.

      Dillon also addressed the Emoluments Clause in the Constitution, which is meant at a minimum to protect the American public from a foreign government being able to bribe the president. Dillon argued that it could not be construed to cover fair value goods or services, for example, paying one's bill at a Trump hotel. (Trump is now facing three Emoluments lawsuits that argue these kinds of payments represent exactly the kind of foreign payments that the Constitution sought to prohibit.) Despite asserting that foreign governments' spending money at Trump properties could not be considered an emolument, Dillon said Trump would voluntarily donate all profits made from foreign government payments to his hotels to the U.S. Treasury.

      This was the ethics plan that Trump laid out for himself and his family. It was meant to assure the public that Trump's private business interests would never overlap or influence his duties as president. His daughter, Ivanka, and her husband, Jared Kushner, made somewhat similar arrangements for themselves and their companies as they got ready to work in the White House. While all three distanced themselves to some degree from the companies and brands that carry their names, their financial stakes in the Trump and Kushner business empires remain the same. As for Trump's sons, they frequently attend White House events and remain very much a part of the political scene surrounding their father.

      It has become difficult to track these conflicts of interest stories as they often get drowned out by competing headlines. To help keep up, below is an attempt at a master list. It's not comprehensive, but it starts to paint a picture of the vast number of issues that require oversight and scrutiny during this presidency. If you see anything I've missed, please send it my way.

      So far, I have done everything Keith, Maria, Paul, and Samantha has
      suggested, and there is still no destination list to populate in the
      scan to feature. Now, you people try and convince me there is nothing
      wrong with your software. I also noticed that when I downloaded the
      file from the link provided, instead of the 298.43M, the download was only
      297M. And this was from your site. I am starting to get very frustrated
      over this. This is a brand new device, and I should not be experiencing
      these kinds of problems. And, at this point in time, I don't think it's
      a very good idea to send me a survey on how things are being done. I
      have been doing the same thing over and over, per instructions from 4
      different people but still have the same problem.

      Ok, copied and pasted the file into the startup folder, and rebooted
      the computer, but nothing has changed. Still cannot get the destination
      list to populate in the scan set up section for the scanner. I keep getting
      the error that it isn't available, and to reinstall the digital and
      imaging software. I have reinstalled the software so many times now, I
      can almost do it in my sleep. I'm still convinced there is something
      wrong with the software, and not my computer or the C5180.

      Hello, yes the icon for the HP Digital Imaging Monitor is in the
      systray. And it has the little checkmark in it's window. I realize you
      guys have 'steps' you have to follow, but I have done all these 'steps'
      with 2 previous techs, and have gotten nowhere. I'm thinking that there
      is definitely something wrong with the software. Even the downloads
      from HP website, both the full download, and just the driver software. I
      have tried both of those as well as the cd that came with the all in one.


      HP AiO E-mail Support wrote:
      Dear Bill,
      Thank you for getting back to us.
      Bill, I understand from your mail that you had already performed the
      steps of uninstalltion and re-installation as suggested by the
      Techincain at chat support. Please accept my apologies for the
      inconvenience that these arrangements have caused. I appreciate your
      patience in getting this resolved.
      This issue occurs, if the software failed to complete a successfull
      installation.
      I understand your concern in getting this resolved at the earliest.
      However I would like to gather a piece of information. This information
      will help us more accurately identify the issues at hand, and allow us
      to provide a more thorough response. Please provide the following
      information.
      1. Do you have the Digital Imaging Monitor icon at the lower-right
      corner in the systray ?
      The digital imaging monitor must be running for the scan to function to
      work. The digital imaging monitor normally appears in the system
      tray(Green circle with a check mark) in the bottom right-hand corner of
      the computer screen, next to the time.
      If the digital imaging monitor does not appear in the system tray, then
      please perform the following:
      === Adding Digital Imaging Monitor to 'Start up'===
      Please perform this step, if the digital imaging monitor does not
      appear
      in the system tray
      1. Click Start, then Run. The Run window opens.
      2. In the Open: line, type msconfig.
      3. Click Run.
      4. Click OK.
      5. In the System Configuration screen, click on the Startup tab.
      6. Search the list for the digital imaging monitor, the file name will
      be hpqtra08.
      7. Recheck the box for hpqtra08.
      8. Click Yes to restart Windows.
      NOTE: If hpqtra08 is not on the list in the Startup tab, this indicates
      that the driver was not correctly installed. I am afraid you may have
      to
      uninstall and reinstall the driver.
      === Uninstall and Re-install the driver ===
      === UNINSTALL THE SOFTWARE ===
      1. Disconnect the printer(All-in-One) from the Computer.
      2. Insert the CD that came along with the printer.
      3. Cancel the installation message that pops up, and browse the
      contents
      of the CD i.e, double click on 'My Computer' , right-click on the
      CD-Rom
      Drive icon and click on 'open'.
      4. In the CD contents, you will be able to view a folder named "UTIL".
      5. Inside the UTIL folder there will be a folder named "CCC".
      6. In the CCC folder, among the various files, you will be able to view
      four files named, Uninstall_L1.bat, Uninstall_L2.bat, Uninstall_L3.bat
      and Uninstall_L4.bat.
      7. First double click on Uninstall_L1.bat file. A black DOS window will
      open up. This will uninstall the software by Level 1 method. It will
      take a while until Level 1 uninstallation is complete.
      8. Similarly complete level 4 uninstallation by clicking on
      Uninstall_L2.bat, Uninstall_L3.bat and then in Uninstall_L4.bat.
      9. This completes level 4 uninstallation of the software.
      === DELETE THE 'DIGITAL IMAGING' FOLDER ===
      1. Click on Start -> My Computer.
      2. Double click on "C:" drive.
      3. Double click on the "Program Files" folder.
      4. Double click on the "HP/Hewlett Packard" folder.
      5. Right Click on the " Digital Imaging " folder and delete.
      6. Restart the computer.
      === RE-INSTALL THE SOFTWARE ===
      1. Insert the CD that came along with the printer.
      2. Follow the screen prompts to install the HP software.
      NOTE: Please connect your HP Photosmart C5180 All-in-One Unit only when
      the installation process prompts you to do that.
      I want to be sure the troubleshooting steps I provided resolve the
      issue. If the issue continues, please reply to this message with the
      results. We will be glad to assist you further.

      Paul,
      Here is a follow-up to what Keith also had me do to get rid of
      everything HP related.


      I am Keith from HP Chat Support Team following up on our recent
      interaction.
      Solution:
      Here are the manual uninstallation steps.
      The following steps will wipe printer and printer drivers from the
      computer:
      A. Removing entries from Add/Remove programs.
      B. Removing entries from Printers and Faxes folder.
      C. Removing entries from Registry.
      D. Removing folders from C:\Windows
      Note: Please ignore any step if you are unable to find that.
      A. Add/Remove Programs:
      =======================
      1. Click Start, Control Panel and double-click Add/Remove Programs.
      2. If there is an entry relating to one of the printers, select it,
      then
      click Change/Remove.
      3. Follow the dialog and "uninstall all" or "remove all" as
      appropriate.
      Some "printer software" have programs that show up here and it will be
      a
      good idea to remove those before going any further.
      B. Printers Folder:
      ===================
      1. Click Start, Control Panel and double-click Printers and Faxes.
      2. Delete all the Printers available, by right-click and selecting
      "delete" option.
      3. Click File menu and select Server Properties.
      4. Select the Drivers tab.
      5. For each entry, select the entry and click Remove.
      C. Windows Registry:
      ====================
      Before modifying registry, take a backup of it.
      1. Click Start and click on Run.
      2. Type Regedit and from File menu, click on Export Registry.
      3. Select "All" option for backing up every key of registry.
      4. Give a destination file (say Regbackup) and save it on to the
      Desktop.
      5. Now, click "+" beside HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and click "+" beside SYSTEM
      6. Click "+" beside CurrentControlSet
      7. Click "+" beside Control
      8. Click "+" beside Print
      9. Click "+" beside Environments
      10. Click "+" beside Windows NT x86
      11. Click "+" beside Drivers
      12. Under this key, there will be the keys Version-2 and Version-3
      (some
      may be absent,
      which is normal)
      13. Click on each Version key to find contents in the right-window
      pane.
      14. Delete all the sub-keys inside Version-2 and Version-3, but not
      these keys themselves.
      15. From File menu, click exit.
      D. Deleting Folders:
      ====================
      1. Click Start, Run and type "command" (without quotes).
      2. Key-in the following commands:
      net stop spooler and press enter.
      net start spooler and press enter.
      3. Type exit.
      Now click on the start menu and choose the run dialog box.
      In the run dialog box key the following without quotes:
      "%systemroot%\system32\spool\drivers\w32x86"
      Press OK.
      NOTE: %systemroot% is usually C:\Windows, but it might be "winnt" or
      something else; this is
      set when the OS is installed.
      5. Inside w32x86, there will be folders with the names 2 and 3 (some
      may
      be absent, which is
      normal)
      6. Delete all of the files and sub-folders in each of the 2 and 3
      folders, but not the
      folders themselves.
      7. Inside w32x86, there may be other folders with names starting with
      "hewlett_packard",
      "hphp" or something else; delete these folders also.
      8. Restart the print spooler (as in 2nd step, above)
      9. Restart the computer.
      Now please insert the cd and then start the installation process.
      I would like to ensure that the steps provided in the chat session are
      clear and concise. For your convenience the steps are listed below. I
      am
      also providing a few alternate solutions.

      problem_description : When attempting to scan a text document, there
      was an error saying I needed to a). Reinstall the software, b). Restart the
      program, or c). restart the computer.
      There is no 'send to' function in scan menu. Only items listed are:
      Scan and Reprint, and Scan to Memory Card.
      trouble_shooting : After numerous attempts to uninstall, and then
      reinstall the software, I contacted the online chat tech support
      section. Keith, from HP Total Care took me thru the steps to do all
      this again, and also the diag test. Nothing showed up as being wrong in the
      diag test. Keith even went as far as emailing me manual instructions to
      delete any and all things HP related, then reinstall the software. I
      did this, and still cannot get the scan function to work. When I go to
      settings;scan set up, there is not a destination list to select from. I
      keep getting an error stating that "the program cannot find any
      available destinations to send scan to", click ok to close the program.
      Reinstall the imaging software to restore the destination information.
      I have lost track on how many times I have tried this, to no avail. This
      is a brand new unit. I have only had it 2 to 3 weeks, and it has been
      this way from day one.
      setting_changes : Nothing has changed since the day I got this, maybe
      2-3 weeks ago.

                1" hard drives? (better yet SSDs?)   

      Hello All,

       

      I bought a Trekstor vibez last fall shortly after they were released I love the player, it works great and battery life is good.

       

      My question for you all is:

      Do you know of any places to purchase 1" hard drives, there is this ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822338001 ) on newegg.com,  I could probably pull the actual drive out of it and try to make it work in the mp3 player.  but I am looking for larger capacity then 10gb (philips sells a 12gb version)  the player has 12gb in it.

       

      What would be perfect (even if its 10-12gb) would be a SSD (solid state drive). It would improve battery life, load times would be better.... list goes on...

      I have found some in the 1.8" form factor but not in the 1" form factor.  has any one seen any??   (btw the 1.8" ones, if you can find them, you can get up to 64gb of storage. (according to samsung)  ) 

       

      any ideas?

       

      Thanks

      Coupone code: MDRP
                Well, Lookie Here   
      I have a long, fond history with golf games, all the way back to Leaderboard on the Amiga. I've played almost all of them since then.

      The modern era, for me, started with PGA Championship Golf 2000, which included a beautifully refined mouse swing and fantastic courses. I sunk many, many happy hours into that game.

      In no way do I still have that kind of time, but if it's a golf game, I'm playing it.

      When The Golf Club came out a few years ago, I spent a bit of time with it and really enjoyed the game. Rough around the edges, a non-optimized engine, but it was greater than the sum of its parts.

      The Golf Club 2 came out on Tuesday.

      I started it up, put graphics settings on Ultra, started playing--uh oh. What a terrible frame rate. Frame rate, in games with a mouse swing, is hugely important, and I was playing with pain in that regard.

      Fiddled with all the settings I could, finally turning every nice graphics option off. Turned on the Steam overlay so I could get a framerate counter displayed.

      That gave me a number for my pain. With v-sync off, the game was chugging along in the high 20s. Turning everything off only got me into the mid-30s, and this was on a course that wasn't even graphically demanding.

      I have a pattern that has been borne out over many years. When I upgrade components, I do it for a single game.

      Front Page Sports Basketball: (Amiga 500 hard drive)
      Front Page Sports: Football (new system)
      Mechwarrior 2 (Voodoo graphics card)
      Command and Conquer (Soundblaster)

      That's all from the wayback machine, but you get the picture: new systems, new graphics cards, new sound cards. Always for a specific game.

      You can see where this is going.

      I made a poor impulse control decision to gut my computer hardware budget for the next eight months and bought a 1080 TI (the Asus Stryx).

      Installed (always takes longer than I remember), ran Firestrike: over 30,000 for the graphics sub-score. Over 2X my existing score.

      Started The Golf Club 2, put the game on Ultra settings, played on the same course that was chugging along in the 20s.

      Now? Locked on 60 FPS with v-sync back on. Never varied. Ludicrously powerful.

      Temps? Never got above 65C. Almost dead silent.

      The game needs some work (the mouse swing is pretty damned punishing, probably overly so), but it's definitely a substantial upgrade over the original game. And my PC equipment is now substantially upgraded as well.

                My Pinky Problem   
      I have been having computer problems over the last couple of months. I should have listened to Gailishus and KayDee who said "just buy a new one". Well, I just loved my ol' reliable Toshiba laptop. It was great. I had that thing for about 4 years. It was heavier than my car, but worked like a charm. Anyways, one day when my system froze, I decided to just turn it off. Bad decision. It actually corrupted one of the system files and the computer would not boot back up again. I went to my friendly computer guy to fix it. He said it was unfixable. I said "Oh no!!". I have pics on there that I have been planning to upload to my papercraft site but just have not had the chance to do it yet.
      Anyways, the guy was able to save my pics onto an external hard drive. Have I tried to retrieve the pics yet...nooooo, I'm too afraid it won't work.
      As per my charming and delightful friends, named above, I went to BB to buy another laptop. I found another Toshiba that was silver and very blingy. It also had alot of guts, 4 gigs of this and 4 ram of that...anyhoo, it was pretty and I liked it.
      Well, I get the pretty laptop home, install Microsoft Office which I purchased at the same time, and bingo - I was connected. I am writing emails to my pals telling them the news and catching up on my 300 emails that I had not received for a month due to not having a computer. I attempted to use the library computers but the hygiene aspect of using a computer touched by numerous strangers, really did not appeal to me and made me feel icky...however I digress.
      As I am typing, I am happy as a clam and then it dawns on me. MY PINKY CANT REACH THE ENTER KEY. I keep hitting the backslash key. Huh? What on earth is this? Was there in-breeding in my genetics that caused the only part of my body to be exceptionally small? I dig for the old laptop that has been tossed aside into the garage and check out the keyboard. The backslash key on the old laptop is higher up on the keyboard. Ugh! How dumb! I was foaming at the mouth like a rabid dog!
      I packed the whole thing up, drove to BB, as soon as it opened in the next morning. I showed the customer service rep at the return counter. Her pinky couldn't reach the enter key either. She was shocked. She called over a customer service guy and he was fine. She shooed him away and called another female employee who's pinky also could not reach the enter key. "Son of a Gun" she exclaimed. She had no problem giving me my money back. Most of the laptops at BB had this dumb keyboard configuration. I had to drive over to FS and found an HP that had a normal keyboard. They too had non-female-pinky-friendly keyboards. I couldn't be choosy at this point. I spoke to the manager of FS and he said he will be discussing this issue at the next meeting. I have a feeling this subject may be filed under "g" in the circular file. However, I don't care. I am connected and was able to start this fun little blog.

                Teach you how to identify a true and false iphone?   

        iphone

        Iphone can be said to be one of the most popular smart phones, because of its smooth system, high-quality mobile phone parts configuration, exquisite appearance, a good brand image and high price of the passerby, loved by users. Each time to the new release on sale when some of the Apple store in front of the sea of people; sometimes even not on sale, it has been booked over. Have to say, Iphone really is a very successful electronic products, but also created the Apple is the world's most profitable technology companies.

        Since so many people to buy iphone, and make money so much, then there will be a lot of 'black workshop' playing a crooked idea: we can imitate the appearance of iphone, and then get some shops to sell. Yes, this is what we are familiar with the cottage machine, mainly in some small mobile phone shop to see sales, of course, will also go to some of the powerful flagship store. So the question comes, how do we identify a true and false iphone? In this regard, we work together to find out!

        Teach you how to identify a true and false iphone

        Identification method One,

        Apple released in the annual new mobile phone will be some unique features, and will also appear in the appearance of the phone. For example, Apple's fingerprint recognition on the 5s, it is integrated in the main screen Home button, and the previous Apple phone is different, there is a steel ring in the outer ring buttons for finger detection and enable fingerprint detection.

        For high imitation machines, no matter how it is imitated in appearance, the fingerprint identification settings for the system can not be imitated. We can first click on the main screen to open the "Settings" application, find the Touch ID settings in the settings, click Open and then we can add a fingerprint finger fingerprint to see if it can be added successfully. If the high imitation iPhone, then, certainly in the fingerprint recognition can not pass. Of course, fingerprint recognition settings, you can also try to use it to unlock the screen, so that you can completely know the current mobile phone is not really the iPhone.

        Identification methods Second,

        Through the computer to identify itunes. Install itunes connected phone, the user's computer will display "XXX digital camera", if it is removable hard drive is the cottage

        Identification methods Third,

        Each iphone has a serial number of their own, you can check the official website of Apple. We can directly in the Google search "Apple serial number query" keyword, you can directly enter the pine in the page query. In the iPhone system settings, you can see the current mobile phone serial number and IMEI number. Under normal circumstances, with the serial number and IMEI number can be found in the hardware warranty date, and the time should be consistent.

        Identification method four,

        Hold down the iphone lcd screen under the HOME button and then press the shutdown button to screen capture, and a shutter sound, if not the function is fake.

        Well, these four methods for the recognition of true and false iphone is still very useful, the user may wish to collect what I believe will be useful to you.

                Here are three ways to upgrade to better hardware

                What can we learn from South Korea during times of recession?   

      Increased unemployment heavily contributed to the rise of massive
      multiplayer gaming and online social networking.


      The government invested heavily in telecoms networks during the
      recession following the Asian economic crisis of the late 90s
      gambling as part of a wider strategic shift South Korea's attention
      towards the global economy and become an electronics powerhouse.

      Population density meant that higher speed services could be delivered
      to more people at a cheaper cost via PC Baangs (internet cafes).
      However, it was not high speed connections that boosted the online
      gaming market. In fact, increased unemployment heavily contributed to
      the widespread adoption of massive multiplayer gaming and online
      social networking. South Korea boasts a highly educated young
      population with 98% of the population attending university, but with
      fewer full time jobs after graduation, job sharing gave provided
      enough money to spend the rest of the time at PC Baangs.

      So, contrary to what other commentators have been saying about social
      media losing it's appeal in economic hard times, perhaps those of us
      in the online gaming and social media space should remain hopeful
      during the current recession.

      The document contains three worksheets. The first sheet shows even strength data for all situations. The second shows even strength data for when the score was close (i.e. whenever the score margin was 1 or 0 in the first two periods, or tied in the third period or overtime). The last sheet contains data for when the score was tied.

      Empty net goals have been removed from the data.

      I didn't make an adjustment for schedule difficulty this go around because - and this is embarassing - when I recently performed a system restore, I forgot to transfer that particular file to my external hard drive. Having said that:

      1. There seems to be more interest in the raw numbers.

      2. The schedule adjustment would be negligible for most teams at this point in the season.

                Scheduled obsolescence or why your iPhone will not last more than two years   


      Imagine a world where you buy an iPhone or an iPad and you can use them until one day you want to buy another one, but that in no case suffers from scheduled obsolescence and for example Apple leaves it out of its updates. Eye, this is not something exclusive of Apple, in fact if there are gadgets designed to last taking care of the maximum quality, those are the ones manufactured by Cupertino . But even so, there is not a single technological company that manufactures something to last a lifetime, otherwise ... go business. Obviously, they think more in their pockets than in the environment .

      Below we review a report jointly done by Greenpeace and iFixit in which they have gutted more than 40 smartphones, tablets and laptops in recent years, to see how companies deliberately plan the planned obsolescence of their gadgets .


      The 5 ways to speed up the scheduled obsolescence of a gadget

      Devices are designed to make your repair complicated


      Changing memory or upgrading a laptop's hard drive is not as simple as it used to be. Why? Basically, because the tendency is to weld the components to the plate , so that the repair is much more complicated.

      The same happens with the change of battery or screen in the case of smartphones , which could do almost anyone before and now every time try to restrict access more, to do it by authorized technical service or directly you are more profitable to buy new one. Clear examples of these practices? Apple, LG or Samsung.


      Devices becoming less robust and more fragile


      Raise your hand if the cell phone has ever broken . And is that any fall is almost fatal, regardless of the pikes and scratches, it is increasingly common for smartphones barely endure a fall of the pocket without a cover to make your screen crack.


      The reason is that they are made of glass, and although it is increasingly innovated in materials, the screens are a bad endemic , something that will increase with this current trend to manufacture smartphones without frames, with the entire front made of Cristal. There is more to see the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the iPhone 8 that is about to leave in September.


      Batteries, increasingly difficult to replace


      In the case of iPad and iPhone, it has always been that way, but once it was easy enough to remove the back covers and change it with little effort . Do you remember the explosions of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7? They could easily have been prevented from having removable batteries. Unfortunately, almost 70% of the devices tested had batteries that were either hard to remove or directly impossible to do, such as the Apple MacBook or the Samsung Galaxy S8, when attached to the device panels.


      The tools to repair are becoming more exclusive


      Even when repair is possible, it is becoming more expensive and time consuming , and the tools used are not standard, but specific screwdrivers are needed: Apple iPhone, Oppo R9, Huawei P9 ... are some examples of devices Which require special instruments.


      Manuals and parts are not easy to get


      Very few manufacturers provide information on how to repair their products . In fact, of the 17 brands analyzed in the study, only three - Dell, Fairphone and HP - provide both parts and repair manuals.


      What eco-friendly gadgets can we buy?


      From what is extracted in the study it is clear that brands like Fairphone, Dell and HP facilitate the repair work in case of failure, something to take into account.

      Also, within the smartphone market, surprisingly, both the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus stand out as a green terminal with a score of 7/10, with positive mentions on the screen. Therefore, we could say that it is the two most eco-friendly smartphones on the market .

      Another factor to take into account that Greenpeace has not included in its study is the reuse, something in which Apple stands out , that is to say, that while at the two years many terminals of other brands are unusable, at Apple they remain operative, That an alternative would be to sell it so that other less demanding users would give them a new life.

                Frag This!   
      Okay, this one is firmly in the technical part of my knowledge. So it's 10:42 pm and I'm still at work. I probably will be at work for a while longer. Why you ask? Because sometimes you just have to learn the hard way that not every utility works the way you'd like it to.

      Let's see...where best to begin? I think I'll start with about 3:30 pm when I was gathering information on my servers to document my network (yes, Grey, you've gotten to me. I need a network diagram). So there I am, writing down the volume sizes and how much free space is left on them, and low and behold one of my servers has an "interesting" situation. It seems that out of a 70 Gig hard drive (it's actually a series of hard drives in a RAID configuration) there's only 1 Gig available free space. This doesn't seem right to me, so I go through all the network shares and check their sizes, and then I check all the regular directories and their sizes, and it all adds up to only about 35 or 40 Gig. Where in Hades did my other 35 Gig wander off to. The next logical step is to check the fragmentation level of this particular server. This is where it gets interesting. Apparently, this machine is more than 50% fragmented. "No problem!" you say? "Just run the defragmentation utility!" you say? Yeah, I tried that, but unfortunantly, the utility requires at least 15% of total drive space to run efficiently. With only 1 Gig left, I don't have the kind of space. To make matters worse, this server is the storage location for all of the users' profiles and document storage directories. This means that I can't start moving things around until after hours.

      So now it's after hours. I move out enough of the directories to clear out the required 15% of the hard drive space, and I run defrag. Much to my surprise, instead of gaining disk space back, I wind up loosing disk space with every run. Every time I hope that it's just a matter of cleaning up some of the fragmented files. So every time, I clear some more files out and try running defrag again (and again, and again).

      Finally, I view one of the defrag reports a little more carefully. As it turns out, there are two files that simply won't be defragmented. Those two files are \System Volume Information\36{38008..... basically they are paging files. My lovely, little, harmless 2 Gig paging files have grown to the size of 35 Gig based solely on fragmentation levels. The file itself is only 2 Gig in size, but due to fragmentation, this little gem takes up 35 Gigs of hard drive space. It seems that the built in defragmentation utility isn't capable of defragmenting an active page file. Every time I run defrag it uses memory (so the paging file grows) and because it's the active paging file, it doesn't get defragmented so I loose space instead of gaining it.

      How do you get out of this fine mess I've gotten myself into? I'm so glad you asked. You need to delete the paging file by going into virtual memory and setting it to "None". By the way, Windows doesn't like this idea, and it will warn you that this is a "Very Bad Thing (tm)". Once you remove the file, you'll need to reboot. Then, after the reboot, you need to recreate your paging file with a more reasonable size (say 2 Gig). Now you'll need to reboot again. Suddenly, the drive that was was reporting 1 Gig free, now says it has over 55 Gigs free! It's amazing.

      So here I sit at 11:00 pm. Putting files back where I found them, and trying to recreate the file structure exactly as it was. I'm sure there are going to be problems tomorrow morning with files missing for someone. They won't know I was here until after midnight, and frankly, they wouldn't care if they did. It just has to work for them. I've learned a valuable lesson out of all this. It's one that I knew before, but it never hurts to be reminded. Always keep an eye on your fragmentation levels. Run defrag regularly, and for Heaven's sake make sure that the source of your fragmentation problems aren't in your paging files (otherwise the built in defragmentation simply won't work). Now you know! And knowing is half the battle!

      I'm going to go home tonight (actually early tomorrow morning) and kiss my wife and brand new baby daughter (oh yeah! did I forget to mention that? I'll have to blog it another time).

                Exclusive: Dropbox seeks to hire IPO underwriters - sources    

      By Liana B. Baker and Lauren Hirsch

      (Reuters) - Data-sharing business Dropbox Inc is seeking to hire underwriters for an initial public offering that could come later this year, which would make it the biggest U.S. technology company to go public since Snap Inc , people familiar with the matter said on Friday.

      The IPO will be a key test of Dropbox's worth after it was valued at almost $10 billion in a private fundraising round in 2014.

      Dropbox will begin interviewing investment banks in the coming weeks, the sources said, asking not to be named because the deliberations are private.

      Dropbox declined to comment.

      Several big U.S. technology companies such as Uber Technologies Inc and Airbnb Inc have resisted going public in recent months, concerned that stock market investors, who focus more on profitability than do private investors, would assign lower valuations to them.

      Snap, owner of the popular messaging app Snapchat, was forced to lower its IPO valuation expectations earlier this year amid investor concern over its unproven business model. Its shares have since lingered just above the IPO price, with investors troubled by widening losses and missed analyst estimates. It has a market capitalization of $21 billion.

      Still, for many private companies, there is increasing pressure to go pubic as investors look to cash out.

      Proceeds from technology IPOs slumped to $6.7 billion in2015 from $34 billion in 2014, and shrunk further to $2.9 billion in 2016, according to Thomson Reuters data.

      Dropbox's main competitor, Box Inc , was valued at roughly $1.67 billion in its IPO in 2015, less than the $2.4 billion it had been valued at in previous private fundraising rounds.

      San Francisco-based Dropbox, which was founded in 2007 by Massachusetts Institute of Technology graduates Drew Houston and Arash Ferdowsi, counts Sequoia Capital, T. Rowe Price and Greylock Partners as investors.

      Dropbox started as a free service for consumers to share and store photos, music and other large files. That business became commoditized though, as Alphabet Inc's Google, Microsoft Corp and Amazon.com Inc started offering storage for free.

      Dropbox has since pivoted to focus on winning business clients, and Houston, the company's CEO, has said that Dropbox is on track to generate more than $1 billion in revenue this year.

      The company has expanded its Dropbox Business that requires companies to pay a fee based on the number of employees who use it. The service in January began offering Smart Sync, which allows users to see and access all of their files, whether stored in the cloud or on a local hard drive, from their desktop.

                10 cara agar kinerja komputer menjadi enteng   
      Apakah komputer Anda terasa sangat lambat? Jika iya, hal ini jelas saja menghambat produktivitas dalam bekerja, menyelesaikan tugas, dan berselancar di dunia maya. 

      Dalam menyambut tahun baru, tampaknya komputer lama juga harus kembali seperti 'baru' dalam performanya. Untuk mendapatkan performa tersebut, berikut ada tips dari Opera Software yang dapat mengembalikan 'kesegaran' komputer kami seperti semula:

      1. Rapikan Desktop

      Layar desktop yang penuh dengan file membuat hal-hal sulit ditemukan dan berantakan. Buatlah folder baru untuk file-file di desktop Anda dan juga folder khusus untuk file-file yang tidak sering di akses. 

      Ini akan membersihkan desktop Anda, sekaligus menyimpan file-file yang masih berguna sampai kamu mempunyai waktu untuk memilah-milah file tersebut.

      2. Pindahkan File-File Besar ke Hard Drive Eksternal

      Agar hard drive bawaan pada komputer kamu tidak terlalu disesakkan oleh file-file yang ada, ada baiknya Anda pindahkan ke hard drive eksternal. 

      Selain membuat hard disk bawaan bisa 'bernafas' lega, dari sisi keamanan juga akan lebih bermanfaat jika suatu saat komputer kamu mengalami hal-hal yang tidak diinginkan.

      3. Bersihkan Multimedia

      Apakah kamu punya daftar film-film yang kamu sukai dan terus ditonton berkali-kali dalam file-file yang ada? Jika tidak, sudah saatnya buang saja film tersebut, dibandingkan harus dibenamkan berlama-lama di dalam komputer.

      4. Pendukung untuk Browser

      Dengan web browser teknologi kompresi Opera, Opera Turbo, kamu dapat memuat halaman web hingga lima kali lebih cepat dibandingkan dengan browser lainnya. 

      Jika kamu terjebak pada koneksi yang lambat, keluarlah dari area WiFi yang sibuk, gunakanlah kartu 3G atau laptop yang terhubung dengan telepon, dan aktifkan turbo mode untuk menjaga intensitas browsing yang tetap meningkat.

      5. Rapihkan Email

      Jika kamu tidak menyimpan sampah di dalam rumah, maka jangan pula disimpan dalam kotak inbox e-mail kamu. Untuk membuangnya, mulailah dengan e-mail yang sudah sangat lama dan yang sudah tidak relevan lagi saat ini. Jangan lupa coba cari di kotak inbox anda newsletter yang sudah usang yang secara rutin dikirimkan ke e-mail kamu.

      6. Mengatur Disk

      Disk fragmentasi adalah salah satu alasan paling umum yang menyebabkan kinerja lambat pada komputer. Pada windows, klik tombol start lalu ke All Programs > Accessories > System Tools pada versi windows yang lama. 

      Pada Windows 8, klik Search, masuk ke Defragment, lalu ke Settings > Defragment dan optimalkan drive komputer.

      7. Hapus Program Autostart

      Untuk memulai program yang hanya kamu inginkan, gunakan start menu pada Windows Vista dan ketik 'msconfig' untuk Windows 7. Buka program link msconfig.exe, di mana Anda dapat menambahkan program autostart. 

      Pada Windows 8, klik Ctrl + Shift + Esc untuk membuka task manager, pilih tab startup dan non-aktifkan item apapun yang kamu tidak ingin mulai secara otomatis. Pengguna Mac bisa pergi ke System Preferences > Users & Groups/Accounts > Login Items untuk menghapus program.

      8. Scan Virus/ Malware

      Jika kamu pengguna Opera, tambahkan WOT (Web Of Trust) dan ekstensi Ghostery. WOT menggunakan sistem lampu lalu lintas untuk menilai kepercayaan dari situs web yang Anda kunjungi, dan Ghostery mendeteksi pelacakan dan web bugs. Pertimbangkan juga untuk menjalankan perangkat lunak anti-virus dan pindai komputer kamu dari malware.

      9. Bersihkan File Sementara 

      Dalam file download di komputer kamu atau folder file-file sementara, hapuslah file yang sudah tidak perlu lagi. Kamu juga dapat menghapus semua file-file sementara di browser. 

      Jika menggunakan Opera, cukup pilih delete private data (pilihan kedua di bawah 'tools') dan dia akan menunjukan apa yang harus dilakukan selanjutnya, termasuk cookies, browsing history atau keseluruhan cache. Pertimbangkan untuk menyimpan tab dan password kamu agar browsing bisa dilakukan dengan cepat.

      10. Bersihkan Fisik Komputer

      Gunakan pembersih yang tepat agar tampak seperti baru lagi. Jika kamu memiliki komputer lebih dari beberapa bulan, ini saatnya untuk membersihkan bagian dalam mesinnya. 

      Bukalah dan bersihkan debu di bagian interior menggunakan kaleng kompres udara dengan hati-hati, terutama pada bagian fan dan heat sink atas prosesor. Ingatlah untuk tidak menyentuh bagian interior.

    •           Dual Booting on Separate Drives   


      When I installed Ubuntu 12.10 I decided to install it on a separate hard drive from my Windows 7 install. Windows is installed on a 1.5TB hdd and I had an extra 500GB hdd that I intended to use for Ubuntu. I installed the hard drive in my PC and booted up the 12.10 installer. When the “installation type” window came up I chose “Something Else” and then “continue”. This popped up a partition editor and I was able to see both drives in the list. Because they were both different sizes, it was easy to determine which was which. In my case the windows drive was called /dev/sda while the new drive was called /dev/sdb. I had used the drive before so there was a bunch of partitions that I needed to erase. To do this I just selected the partition I wanted to erase and clicked “Delete”. Once they were all gone I was left with one item under /dev/sdb called “free space”. I selected this and clicked “add” to create a new partition. Under “Mount Point” I picked “/boot”, I made the size 500MB, left the rest at default and clicked “OK”. I created another partition for root choosing “/” under Mount Point, Logical for the type, and a size of 50,000MB. For the next partition I selected “swap area” under “use as”, making it 4000MB, I clicked “Logical” for type, and “End” for location. Finally for the last partition I used the remainder of the drive for the home partition. I chose “/home” under Mount Point, “Beginning” for location and “Logical” for type.



      Important Step!

      To make sure I could boot into both Windows and Ubuntu, I selected /dev/sdb under “device for boot loader installation”. and then clicked “Install now”. Once the install was finished I rebooted the computer and pressed the delete key to enter the BIOS. I set the second Ubuntu hdd as my primary boot device and BAM! I was dual booting with windows.

      Well, either my plants have given up the ghost, or the vampires found a way through the wards, meaning I must do most of my sleeping during the day, and of course when I'm trying to type, they go after my hands. And somehow my fan lost most of its power, so the best I can do is try to hold it and type at the same time. Methinks chemical warfare may be necessary, if foggers on timers are anything resembling affordable (and hard enough to steal / unattractive enough to roaming banditso.)
      Birthday on a boat sounds a little more fun smile .
      I think it might be time for a new hard drive and probably a new computer, and that is not budgetable ATM. One external hard drive failed in December, and the other was occasionally doing scary things it doesn't normally do during my last backup. And my computer is being so eradic with its bouts of sluggishness that I am not sure it's doing so well, either. (And yet the 16-year-old laptop with Windows ME had no problems last time I turned it on. ... For backing up its contents, of course.)

      We’ve been testing #HighSierra, which you can try yourself now as part of Apple’s public beta. It’s the next major release of macOS and it’s going to feel like a somewhat boring update to most people. It’s full of foundational refinements and new technologies that will prepare your Mac for very cool things that are coming over the next few years. There’s a whole new file system underneath everything! But feature-wise, High Sierra lacks any new apps or consumer-facing changes that will make it all that exciting for Mac users. If you’re a photographer, you’ll certainly appreciate the revamped Photos app and its more powerful editing tools. Mail, Safari, Notes, Spotlight, and Siri are all slightly better on High Sierra, too. But this time, the most important changes are all happening under the hood. The Photos app has received the most attention and the payoff for that work is significant. The Mail app will likely save space on your Mac’s hard drive, notes can now be pinned, more natural voices are coming to Siri, iMessage history can be stored in the cloud, and much more. Even if you’re unlikely to notice all of the changes, some are pretty monumental for the operating system’s future. 💻🖥 📸 @happicamp @chriswelch

                Forex Trading Software   

      Forex Trading Software

      If you are looking to get started trading the Forex, you will find that there are numerous software programs available (both web based and desktop based) for you to use in your trading. In fact, most brokers offer clients a software package for free or as part of their trading account. Usually the software that comes with your trading account is a very basic "bare bones" model. Sometimes, more features are available for a price. The software packages your broker provides can be an important consideration in choosing a broker. You may want to download and try some different packages using a demo account. This will give you a better idea of which software package you find most suitable to your unique style of trading.

      Forex trading software comes in two basic flavors - desktop software, and web based software. Which one you choose to work with depends on your preference and other more technical factors. Obviously, the Forex market is very dynamic and you need to have the most reliable up to date connection to the data as possible. Your internet connection speed is a factor here, and if you can afford it, you really should be connecting via broadband.

      Your internet connection speed is just one of the factors you should consider when selecting forex trading software. The biggest consideration should be one of security.

      Generally speaking, web based forex software is more secure than a desktop based software package. Why is that? Well, with a desktop software, your information and data is stored on your hard drive thus making it vulnerable to numerous security issues. If your computer became infected by a virus, your personal data and the integrity of your trading system can become compromised. Likewise, in the event of hard drive failure, your important data can be lost. Then there is the threat of prying eyes accessing your trading systems.

      Luckily, if you choose to go with a desktop based software for your forex trading, you can do some things to limit the risks. For starters, a dedicated computer just for trading the forex would be a wise investment. Due to the popularity of forex trading, there are computers made specifically with a forex traders needs in mind. Even if you cant afford a dedicated machine, you should still apply the following tips to your trading computer:

      * Password protect your trading software and personal data
      * Make regular backups of your trading data
      * Use a anti virus program and keep it up to date
      * Update your trading software regularly

      If you choose to go with a web based trading software, allot of the security and maintenance issues are handled by the provider. Online based forex systems are hosted on secure servers, the same type of servers credit card processing is handled on. This gives you a great deal of protection, as your data is encrypted. Also, backups and mirrors of your account data are made by your software provider to protect you from data loss.

      Aside from the security considerations, you may find that an online based trading software is simply more convenient. There is no software to download as the software runs in your regular web browser. This means that you always will have access to the latest versions and features. Also, if you travel you will certainly appreciate the ability to log in and trade from any computer with an internet connection.

      As you can see, there are many options in forex trading software. You ultimately should choose to work with the software that you personally find easiest and most intuitive to use. that you personally find easiest and most intuitive to use.

                All your computers are belong to us: the dystopian future of security is now   

      Alon is contemplating replacing his laptop so I figured I would recommend he take a look at Purism, a company offering laptops that are designed for people that care about security and privacy.

      Unfortunately, once I started looking a bit more closely at this little rabbit it ran deep down into its little rabbit hole and I discovered that in reality there are currently very very few hardware options for people that want a computer that is not backdoored with a sophisticated rootkit at the hardware level.

      I followed the Snowden revelations closely and even read Grenn Greendwald's "No Place to Hide", but still the extent of this was news to me. Apparently after 911 an NSA program called "Sentry Owl" successfully coerced major US PC companies into co-designing hardware level rootkits into their products.

      By 2006 the new generation of Intel hardware came with Intel ME ("Management Engine"), the secret computer within your computer pre-installed.

      The ME has a full network stack with its own MAC that works even when your computer is turned off and has direct access to RAM and you all hard drives / peripherals. It's a 5MB proprietary encrypted blackbox that was designed to be extensible while being extremely hard to reverse engineer. The ME CPU runs its own custom non-x86 instruction set (ARC), the firmware is compressed with a custom designed compression algorithm, and all code is signed and encrypted. Intel is extremely uncooperative with anyone that wants details on how this thing works, including big customers like Google.

      If you wanted to design a universal hardware backdoor that is embedded into all PCs this is how you would do it.

      The people who seem to know the most about Intel ME outside of the intelligence community are the free software "nuts" attempting to develop a free (free as in free speech) boot process:

      https://libreboot.org/faq/#intel

      Unfortunately, the latest generation of AMD hardware (post-2013) has its own version of Intel ME called the AMD PSP (Platform Security Processor) which isn't any better:

      https://libreboot.org/faq/#amd

      For people that want a computer that isn't backdoored at the hardware level libreboot recommends not using modern hardware at all. Yikes!

      Intel ME and the AMD PSP have the NSA's fingerprints all over it. I would be very very surprised if it turned out NOT to be designed (or at least co-designed) with the concerns of US intelligence capabilities in mind.

      Unfortunately, that's a problem even if you trust the NSA not to abuse their powers, because  as one 29-year old former NSA contractor armed with a thumbdrive showed - the NSA's security isn't all that great.

      Even those who think it's wise to trust the NSA would probably think twice about trusting the legions of private contractors it depends on to run its mass warrantless surveillance programs.

      Even worse, according to experts like Bruce Schneier the game of cyber-espionage is all offense, no defense. In other words, foreign intelligence agencies most likely already had all the documents Snowden leaked because they were already in the NSA's systems.

      So now you also have to trust not just the NSA, but the Russian FSB, the Chinese Cyberarmy, and potentially anyone working for them in past, present and future.

      Now I get why the Chinese are developing their own CPUs, why the Russians and Germans are reverting to typewriters and paper for classified information, and what a top US intelligence officials means when he says:

      I know how deep we are in our enemies's networks without them having any idea that we're there. I'm worried that our networks are penetrated just as deeply

      The only saving grace is that given the risk of detection, political fallout and attack devaluation, I reckon advanced attackers regard hardware level backdoors as the tools of last resort and only against high-value targets. For the little guys, they'll prefer plausibly deniable exploits in endpoint software that were either accidentally or maliciously inserted. And yes, part of Sentry Owl and similar programs by other intelligence agencies involves inserting undercover agents into private companies and presumably into open source projects like Debian and Ubuntu as well.

      Bottom line: options for a someone who wants a computer and get reasonable assurance that it cannot be remotely controlled at the hardware level when connected to the Internet are virtually non-existent.

      You can raise the bar a little bit without sacrificing too much comfort with products like those from Purism:

      https://puri.sm/products/

      Features I like:

      • No binary blob drivers (which I'm certain are ALL backdoored)
      • hardware cut-off switches for RF, wireless and camera
      • Qubes OS certified / pre-installation option

      https://www.qubes-os.org/news/2015/12/09/purism-partnership/

      Stuff I don't like:

      Possibly the closest thing you can get to a free computer at the hardware and software level is by buying old refurbished hardware directly from the libreboot guys:

      https://minifree.org/

      Unfortunately, you'll need to pay dearly for freedom. The laptop hardware was cutting edge in 2008. The server/workstation board is better since it took AMD longer to get on the backdoor bandwagon.

      Also, given the well established practice of intercepting hardware in-route to install implants, if you don't have the skills to inspect hardware yourself, you can you know supposedly clean hardware hasn't been tampered with en route?

      Paranoia, justified or not, is a tough hobby.
