  1. Yeahno... if it's in the same namespace, you should name the classes differently (e.g. TimerThingSecond and TimeThingDay). But the optimal route would be to have one generic timer for both times.
  2. Be aware that if you don't own the rights to the game you decompiled, you might break the law if you decide to publish the game! On that note, while Actionscript is far away from C#/Js in many aspects, the logic still holds similarities. Doing it by hand might be a large task, but it should be doable with some knowlegde in Unity, and if you hurry up, you might be able to use Unity Learn Professional while it is available, free of charge! (their free tier is great too!)
  3. Okay, so it seems like it's one of those bigger starter sets, which is great, this means you're basically not limited, unless you need e.g. multiple wheels and such. However, you could start with something simple, like using a temperature module with the LCD to make a digital room temperature reader. You could further expand that to include buttons, so you could switch between e.g. light (photo resistor) and temperature... this should give you a good understanding for the basics of coding with arduino, and scaling sensors. Using the 74HC595, which is a shift-out module, you can basically control 8 digital outputs from one serial output, so you can start simple with maybe a couple of traffic lights and controll it accordingly? If you want to got slightly further, you can even use the LCD or 8*8 Dot matrix with buttons or the joystick module and make a simple game, maybe flappy-bird, space invader, tetris or well... anything within the arduino restraints? Oh, and Instructables is a quite interesting website as well, for all hobby designs, not only arduino https://www.instructables.com/
  4. There's lots you could do! It all depends on the kit you got, and what you envision to do with it, the sky is the limit! Arduino is great for prototyping nearly everything, and something as complex as a robot cleaner/vacuum could be simple-ish to do with an arduino. May I suggest for you to head over to Arduino Project Hub, it's a great location for inspiration! https://create.arduino.cc/projecthub
  5. Actually not a bad idea... if done well, this could connect you to more people with similar interests as you.. so this sounds interesting!
  6. Could it be that all the SD card you've tried, is more than 32GB in size? Because SD cards larger than 32GB is usually formatted with the exFAT filesystem, which the Raspberry pi bootloader doesn't support.
  7. Not a stream deck, but a "GoXLR Mixer"
  8. I have to, partly, disagree. An average user wouldn't note much difference using Mac OS, Windows nor Linux, as all they will use is the office package and internet browser.. and if those are easily available, that's basically all there is to it. If a computer comes pre-installed with Linux, the average user would just login and start browsing the web without diving any further. The issue is if you wish to to other stuff with it, such as gaming, video/photo editing or mostly everything "above average" computer stuff on your PC, and don't like hacking around your system. Plus, not all industry-standard tools are available in Linux. If you, however, are tech savvy and actually spend some time with Linux, you'll eventually figure out that a lot of stuff is easier or more convenient to do in Linux. E.g. as a developer, I find Linux tools a lot more powerful and a lot easier to work with, than competing tools on Mac OS and Windows. However, if it's your first time developing something, then it might be an easier route to start out with Mac OS and Windows.
  9. Ah, then it makes a tad more sense that a simple fix like this won't work. I'm not quite familiar with DO, but I'll try to come with some possible solutions, based on available information: Maybe checking out this post? https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/i-cannot-seem-to-connect-via-private-ip-address-between-2-droplets Other than that: Is the address range of the VPC the same as the server IP-ranges? And is the firewall setup of the VPC made to allow all local communication? and remember to reboot after changes on the VPC and/or droplet configuration.
  10. Hm, weird. You might have three different ones that needs to be active, one for public, private and domain networks (not sure if that's the case for server editions as well?) Other than that, how is the physical network setup? Is two servers connected directly to a switch or are they virtual? Also, there might be some outbound rules for the same settings.
  11. To answer you title; it depends. For the majority of people, Linux just isn't worth it, just yet. I prefer Linux over Windows and Mac OS for many tasks, but I also enjoy spending time to solve challenges I might get when doing stupid s**t I never should've. But again, most people just want to open the laptop/tablet/desktop/phone and start using it, and while distrobutions might be at that stage right now, it still requires the user to actually install it, which is a barrier most people won't pass. In the future, more computers might come pre-installed with some distrobution that just works out of the box, and that might be the actual rise of Linux on the desktop. About all the stuff you listed, well, enough people already answered why those statements/issues are false or misleading, so I won't bother with it.
  12. Even if your firewall is disabled, the Echo Requiest could still be disabled, I believe that with the release of Windows 7/Windows Server 2008 they, as a default, disabled echo on ping requests, so you could try to enable it? https://www.rootusers.com/how-to-enable-ping-in-windows-server-2019-firewall/ Short summary of the information, in case the website goes down: Open "Windows Defender Firewall with Advanced Security" Goto "Inbound Rules" Find "File and Printer Sharing (Echo Request - ICMPv4-In)" Right click it, and select "Enable Rule" Do the same to ICMPv6-In in case you wish to enable in on IPv6 as well.
  13. This could be possible with a similar software that Linus & Co used building the 6 editors, 1 cpu and 7 gamers, 1 cpu systems; Unraid. There are other ways of doing it as well, such as most Linux distros and KVM. Probably possible with some sneaky software on Windows as well, but I've never tried that path before.
  14. You missed the most important part: Chrome: CTRL+SHITFT+N = Firefox: CTRL+SHIFT+P =
  15. Maybe you should find a software that generates virtual network adapters, then you use proxifier to assign the different adapters to the different windows? After that, unless the virtual network adapter already has internet connection, you could probably bridge the adapters?
  16. Well, posting at what stage you got the error, and what you've done prior to getting the error. However, seems like somebody already has had a similar issue, and it seems like the apache2 isn't configured with those domains on a vHost; https://community.letsencrypt.org/t/problem-with-initial-setup/96580/2
  17. Well, there's a few things I can think of, and these are those I know of: If you're somehow able to move a .reg file to your computer (via a friends computer, maybe?) with the contents: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\exefile\shell\open\command] @="\"%1\" %*" "IsolatedCommand"="\"%1\" %*" and then double-click it. This should, hopefully, make exe files run with the correct parametres. Other than that, you might want to try to get a memory stick with Windows 10 and try to repair it from there. There's always the last method, and that's to copy the registry from C:\Windows\System32\Config (I believe it should either be software or system), this can be opened and edited on a different Windows machine and placed back on the currently not working machine. I have a vage memory of doing this to fix a W2k PC at work some years ago, but I am unsure if the solution worked as I wanted.
  18. Maybe looping through the controls and checking it that way: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/14129652/dynamically-looping-through-picture-box-controls-in-visual-basic-2010-does-not-s A better solution might be to make a list of all the pictureboxes and their locations and sizes (could use the loop to automate this part), then use LINQ to check wether or not there is a intersect. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/visual-basic/programming-guide/language-features/linq/introduction-to-linq Even better would be if you could dynamically create all the objects and positions, using e.g. a textfile (or hardcoded into the software ofc) for the data (x, y, width, height), because then you could create a list containing all the objects, and you wouldn't have to loop through the controls in order to fetch and store them. It all depends on your end goal with the program thought.

    Remote server?

    Well... what application are you trying to launch?
  20. If you're inexperienced with software development, I'd suggeset to start off with a simple programming language. Since you're relying on a rpi, I'd suggest going for Python. What you'd have to do, is basically loop through the disks, detect new drives (not sure if you could attach it to a system event for when new drive is connected, to drop the loop?) , go to a clone/copy function, format, then possibly use the rpi GPIO to display a LED for "done". Luckily for us, the internet is overflowing with helpful articles Detecting new USB devices https://stackoverflow.com/questions/47495206/how-to-detect-a-new-usb-device-is-connected-on-python Python copy: https://docs.python.org/3/library/copy.html https://stackoverflow.com/questions/123198/how-do-i-copy-a-file-in-python Python format drive https://stackoverflow.com/questions/27568706/format-drive-in-python Raspberry pi/Python GPIO https://thepihut.com/blogs/raspberry-pi-tutorials/27968772-turning-on-an-led-with-your-raspberry-pis-gpio-pins Not sure if all of these articles are completely up-to-date and working with RPI/Linux, but it should give you an general idea for the path you should take
