I wrote this in python. It works but it's a slow as fuck.

Adjust the 3 constants at the top accordingly.

import sys src = r'' output = r'' blockSize = 1024 * 1024 with open(src, 'rb') as inFile, open(output, 'wb') as outFile: nZeroes = 0 eof = False while not eof: inByte = inFile.read(1) if not inByte: eof = True elif inByte == b'\x00': nZeroes = (nZeroes + 1) % blockSize else: for _ in range(nZeroes): outFile.write(b'\x00') nZeroes = 0 outFile.write(inByte) for _ in range(nZeroes): outFile.write(b'\x00')

I'm in the market for a laptop, but I'm not sure if I can get away with meeting all my criteria.

- It'll be purely for business, the most demanding thing it will be opening is numerous Chrome tabs.
- It needs to run Windows software, with MS Office.
- I want it to be lightweight and no bigger than an A4 pad.

Is there any chance of me getting this for around £200?

I've been seeing refurbished X series Thinkpads from as little as £100, but maybe this is dodgy?

Do you lads know of something better?

The answer is 'pretty well', it seems. Here's a decent video on it that goes over the basics, but also demonstrates that even though Linus is actively trying to get the authentication to trip up, it doesn't always work. It also seems like if your Win10 licence is tied to a Windows Live account it's even easier to sort out anyway.

I should add that in my experience, I've swapped out graphics cards, CPU and motherboard, and Windows 10 either didn't notice, or immediately adapted to the new hardware behind the scenes. I've also put my SSD from one Thinkpad into a different model and that worked fine too. I wouldn't worry.

> How much of my PC can I upgrade before Windows 10 shits itself?

I'll eventually find this out myself as I migrate various VMs around work/customer/enterprise boxes but I do have a shit ton of experience of Office 2013's "Windows Genuine Advantage" which basically threw its toys out of the pram if your CPU changed.

If Win10 is anything like WGA you can change your hdd/ssd, your ram, and any peripherals like video cards / gpus and the like - but the moment you change out the CPU it'll throw a wobbly.

Essentially it all comes down to what data MSFT uses to create their "globally unique identified" (my money's on CPU model and serial number and probably BIOS/UEFI serial number if it's available).

27302 New toy, broken. Sadness
New phone arrived this morning, a year after ordering (yay, indiegogo). It's a lovely jewel of a thing, and the keyboard feels excellent.
Bastard thing's got a cracked outside screen cover, so I'm guessing I'm going to have to send it back, to a company that's in the throes of shipping and unlikely to be very responsive, but I've contacted them.
Arse. I was really looking forward to this.
It doesn't look user-replaceable, and as it's a 'perk' not a purchase, I don't know where I stand.
Whinging here rather on their forum because their forum is full of the most insufferable pricks.

>>27303 I dunno I think PDAs have had their day.

That's probably why you didn't buy one, and I did.
I've had Nokia Communicators, teeny tiny laptops, the Gemini and now this. It's hardly a PDA, it's a computer with a small but tolerable keyboard. I really don't like touchscreens for text entry, and this is something I can easily pocket, and which has a decent battery life so it'll probably work when I want to use it.
As for 'why' - it's a fine email machine, and fine for hammering out words for code or documents. I still tend to go back to a real machine for editing, but for getting the first cut of things, if I can't be arsed to fire up a laptop or find somewhere to perch it, it works nicely. I played with various OSes on the Gemini, but lacklustre support for the Mediatek means I ended up back on Android. I'll try again on the Cosmo.

That is basically what I meant, joking aside. I only have personal projects to faff about with but have still often wanted a 'proper' keyboard for this sort of thing. Even just for emailing in the field in my real job, though personally I prefer a good software keyboard over an "okay" mini keyboard. A thumb board is preferable to both, something in the XDA format would be genuinely useful for my work, but a the clamshell of this or the Gemini or the GPD Pocket are just not ideal for the outdoor-ish work I find myself doing, and modern smartphones are still pretty excellent at typing while standing up, walking etc, but lack the ability to run weird old proprietary software I use, and they don't play well with our VLAN either.

27254 Bluetooth keyboard/mouse dropping out
Alright lads. Here's the situation. I bought a fancy Microsoft Surface Ergonomic bluetooth keyboard, and every time I step away for more than ~5 minutes it does this thing where I have to press a key and then wait for 1-3 seconds. During this time the system is completely locked - whatever's on screen freezes in place and any sound or music stops.

This happens under Linux as well as Windows.

I've looked in power settings in Windows for dongle and mouse and switched it to never sleep wherever possible.

I've looked for others with the same problem, found a handful. Nobody had a solution.

As it happens, I've been given a Surface mouse for free. It also seems to suffer the same problem. My next step would be to buy another bluetooth dongle, but I'm broke and I'd rather not spend the money if can avoid it.

Is there an easy way of pinging bluetooth devices? Or any other way of keeping a bluetooth device awake? I don't mind charging batteries if it'll fix the problem.

I've probably missed the boat on this one, apologies for necroposting, will be sure to sage etc.

> During this time the system is completely locked - whatever's on screen freezes in place and any sound or music stops.
This sounds like an issue with the Bluetooth Stack or possibly a very badly behaved driver. (I'm assuming here that the lock-up only happens during the 1-3 seconds that the device is waking up, if so there's potentially some idiotic while loop blocking all other I/O, although given the number of different busses involved I still find that .... weird to say the least).

> Is there an easy way of pinging bluetooth devices? Or any other way of keeping a bluetooth device awake? I don't mind charging batteries if it'll fix the problem.

On linux you can use lp2ping. I'm not sure if there's a windows port, but you might get it to run under WSL if you're using Windows 10. You might also want to dig out the technical specification document for your keyboard and see if there's a vendor specific HCI command for setting its sleep timeout or what have you.

Ihave made a mental arithmetic brain trainer.

It generates expressions at random like "6 * 3" that you have to evaluate as fast as possible.

It's set to use numbers 1-10 but you can gradually increase the range as you get better.

I recommend training for 20 mins a day.

27251 Practical Networking primers and such
Not too long ago I managed to land myself a position as some sort of a systems administrator / network engineer at a small to medium local ISP in the middle of nowhere.
I'm moderately familiar with their network from the tech support days in the same company. I've dabbled with Linux and *BSD systems before, these don't scare me really.
I've also read Tanenbaum and Olifers' books about networks.

All of this helps immensely though at times I feel like I only barely manage to keep myself from drowning. I can coast along like this a few years, I think, yet I'd prefer not to.

Recommend me something hands-on, please. I've identified at least a few areas where I suck, these include: interoperability between Layer-2 and Layer-3 technologies, routing [0], gateways and firewalls. For the latter, whilst I have a rather clear idea how to firewall an endpoint, I struggle with firewalling transit nodes.

As an example, Network Warrior - I don't remember the author - was good.

----------

[0] Whilst having a basic idea how it works and what protocols do what, I only vaguely understand how I'm supposed to debug routing issues. Also, BGP and iBGP stuff.

To clarify about L2/L3 inter-op a bit, one particular problem I've grappled with included passing transit traffic in a dedicated vlan id through the edge router. There, it had to exit the network via what I understand to be a L3 interface.
It boiled down to setting up bridge domains or whatever its name was. I smashed together a config using a similar one for another VID but bugger me if I undestood what I did.

24391 Time to upgrade
My phone needs to be upgraded. I plan on buying a smart phone, but I don't want to be forking out all my hard earned cash on something super fancy. I'd rather have something more mid-range. But I have no idea what is good and what isn't. I've been using an old samsung for as long as I can remember, so far behind the times, I honestly don't know what to look for.

So I turn to you guys.

I want android.

I'd like to be able to play games and such on it, Fallout Shelter for example, emulators (a buddy of mine has GTA San Andreas on his phone, which would be a bonus)

A half decent camera would be a good touch too as I'm an artist and would love to be able to take quality photos of my work on my phone.

What you saying lads? Can you recommend anything?

I know there's at least one radiolad here - tell me about ADS-B setups.

I only really need the bare minimum to get the free flightradar business account, but I'd actually quite like to get decent coverage myself.

What's the 'best' way to do this? I've got enough raspi's knocking about for that to be the easiest route for me, but as ever I'm willing to be swayed to more expensive bollocks.

I also have two different places I could base the receiver - somewhere with decent elevation about 15 miles from the airport, or somewhere in a slight valley but within spitting distance (well, one mile) of the airport. Which is more appropriate?

Also, it'd be quite nice to run a regular SDR alongside that, I know you can do that with an RPi setup, but what would you recommend for a general, occasional poking about on the airwaves dongle + aerial combo too?

I found a good old school 90's messageboard which focuses on picking nits in science fiction:

http://nitcentral.philfarrand.com/discus/messages/1041/14282.html?1316247691

Note this post from 1999 - "Big nit: In this world, the Constitution has been outlawed. No freedom of speech, no freedom of the press, and so forth. Our heroes, however, manage to put the Constitution on the Internet. My nit is this; how can the Internet exist without free speech? It doesn't make sense that the Internet could have arisen and been made public in a world where freedom of expression doesn't exist.".

I want to make a custom Linux live cd but I don't know where to start.

What I want is a minimal operating system with a picture and video viewer and with truecrypt installed so it can access an encrypted usb stick.

It's not the same IP so that won't help. I'm not sure what a jana model video is and nor does startpage.

From what people who have been on the blue side of the line tell me, paedos who are just collecting generally aren't that smart, and don't go to that much effort. Apparently, when the police do a raid, quite frequently the paedo will actively point out where their stash is, because they know they're set for a long stretch inside and know that the more they co-operate the shorter that stretch is going to be.

Classic police "intelligence". Of course the small bean regarders who get raided are half-witted and half-arsed - if they were any good at covering their traces, they wouldn't be getting their door kicked in.

27163 Newbie Dev
I've been asked to develop a mobile app at work. I've never done mobile dev and this will be by some margin the most substantial thing I've written.

I'm currently leaning towards React Native (Expo) but I'm hearing many good things about Flutter. I'm a bit wary that Flutter is AFAICT nowhere in the UK in terms of job postings. If this project goes well I reckon I'd stand a good chance of doubling or tripling my salary even by taking a junior role. I know if I can pick up one I could certainly pick up the other, but I think having the professional experience is highly valued. Does anyone with their ear to the ground have any input as I hadn't even heard of Flutter before I started researching. Maybe Flutter will be more popular 1-2 years down the line, but maybe it's hard to predict.

On a related note: in any IT job, how common is it for you to spend an entire day or days researching new tech for a new product or project? I could perhaps be recording my research better but it's easy to feel like nothing has been done.

>the market for JS frameworks has exploded in the last few years as front-end development has become a respectable engineering art; they are two a penny now and the source of much geek arguments.
One of the reasons I've tried to stay focused on back-end development is that it takes more than just the passing of a weekend to render my knowledge out of date.

Rule of thumb: go with whatever's newer / flashier. They'll just get you to refactor the code for the next framework of the week a few versions down the line anyway.

Depending on the use-case, it might make more sense to develop a Progressive Web App rather than a native app. With modern web APIs, you can provide an icon on the home screen, offline functionality and push notifications with a web app. You can fully leverage your existing web development skills and tooling, you don't really have to worry about cross-platform issues and you can deliver a more streamlined onboarding process.

How can I disable the bloody Firefox auto-update thingy?
I used to be able to do that with a bit of about:config fiddling. Since version 62-64 that seems to be ineffectual. It still nags me with idiot 'UPDATE AVAILABLE PLS INSTALL' pop-ups.

What's the best way to rip my dick off?

>That's probably not a good idea mate, there'll be blood and pain and you'll probably get sectioned.

>Yeah, I think why is more important than how in this scenario. Are you OK m8?

Bloody typical, I just want to know the best way to rip my dick off but I just get patronised and insulted. Stop being smartarses and tell me how to rip my dick off.

>I dunno, maybe tie a rope around it, tie the other end to a tree, get in your car and floor it?

Jesus christ, that's really going to hurt and I'll get blood all over my upholstery, I don't want to do that. Does anyone know a clean, painless way to rip my dick off?

I'll fire up Wireshark on the other day just to check on the traffic for the sake of curiosity.

How viable is freelance web dev right now? Be it front, back, full.

I'm working a 9-5 Network Engineering job, and whilst the pay is decent at 32k (for my area of the country, and being a graduate's first proper job), I'd much rather work to my own accord remotely, and networking is really not the area for that.

I get the impression it isn't very realistic, what with the saturation of webdev bootcamp 'graduates' looking to fulfil the work in your pants dream, and those make your website in one click things like wix.

I have some programming skills, but none I think are particularly relevant (Python, bash), so if the answer is yes , it is viable, I'd like some pointers on areas to focus on please, both in terms of technical skills and areas within web development that offer some opportunity.

I gather (for front end) it is some order of: HTML, CSS, Javascript, Bootstrap, Jquery, Git, node.js, mongodb.

Thank you.

Honestly a better answer than some I've heard.
> I never had to do that
> I just use it to make API calls
> Well, actually I just modified existing scripts
> I just put it on the CV because it gets me past the filters
> I use ansible which is written in python. If I can't do it in the playbooks, then clearly I'm doing it wrong!

This should really be a /101/ thread.

My area is data analysis so naturally I'm an abysmal programmer. I assume by the question you mean 'opening' a file within the space where python can fiddle around with its constituent bytes. Generally there are library-specific functions for different filetypes in my field, for your bog-standard NumPy array I'd just use np.load() for example. Am I completely thick? Wouldn't it depend entirely on what data structure you want to work with anyway? With an unusual filetype I'd have to research what methods exist for working with it. If you're talking about loading the pure byte stream as a univariate array/list, I'm ashamed to admit I don't know.

> Am I completely thick?

No, and tedious as the answers I listed were the people who gave them weren't thick either. The question is a bit open ended to find out what kind of interaction people had with the language and which direction they approach it from and if that matches up with what we're after. It's intended to sound out how much of what they write is reciting magic incantations v.s. some deeper understanding of what it is they're making the language do (hence the follow up question on context managers). That sort of approach happens to be useful for what we need, but it's not more "correct" or "better".

You'd be far from the only one to use python like a DSL for their niche and if that's all you need from it to get your job done then that's cool, too!
