Appnovation Technologies: Simple Website Approach Using a Headless CMS: Part 1

drupal.org aggregator - Wed, 02/06/2019 - 03:00
Simple Website Approach Using a Headless CMS: Part 1 I strongly believe that the path for innovation requires a mix of experimentation, sweat, and failure. Without experimenting with new solutions, new technologies, new tools, we are limiting our ability to improve, arresting our potential to be better, to be faster, and sadly ensuring that we stay rooted in systems, processes and...

Laptop for College

Total budget and country of purchase: No budget, USA

● Do you prefer a 2 in 1 form factor, good battery life or best specifications for the money? Pick or include any that apply.

Good battery

● How important is weight and thinness to you?

I will be using this laptop throughout my years at college so getting something light is very important

● Which OS do you require? Windows, Mac, Chrome OS, Linux.


● Do you have a preferred screen size? If indifferent, put N/A.

13.3”, 14” 15.6” is fine

● Are you doing any CAD/video editing/photo editing/gaming? List which programs/games you desire to run.

I will have to run Adobe Premier and wish to run League of LegendsIf you're gaming, do you have certain games you want to play? At what settings and FPS do you want? League of Legends. Above 60 FPS Max settings is fine

● Any specific requirements such as good keyboard, reliable build quality, touch-screen, finger-print reader, optical drive or good input devices (keyboard/touchpad)?

High build quality and possibly anything that would allow me to utilize Windows Hello would be great

● Leave any finishing thoughts here that you may feel are necessary and beneficial to the discussion.

I prefer not to get a laptop that has any gamer aesthetic to it. I’ve been looking at the Asus UX553FD for quite a while now but I’m reaching out to this Subreddit in hopes of anything different I might be able to purchase. As for the graphics card, an Nvidia GeForce MX150 would suffice. It would be great if the CPU is an i7-8550U or an i7-8565U. As for the design, anything that looks premium along with thin bezels would be great.

Need help! Trying to display a letter on a LED-grid

Raspberry Pi - 11 min 2 sec ago


I'm trying to make a setup with two Raspberry PI's, where one gets input from a keyboard, and the other displays which letter is pressed through a LED-grid.

I've tried to illustrate it in this picture.


Anyone know how I can do this? The PI's will be connected wirelessly.

Can not having the DNS role on a DC mess with things?

Sysadmin - 18 min 52 sec ago

The guys before me who setup our primary DC never put the DNS role on it. I always thought that was odd and not according to best practice. I think this may be causing our sysvol not to replicate to other DC's. What are your thoughts? Just trying to narrow down this replication issue.

Sysadmin - 20 min 17 sec ago

Brought to you by the /r/sysadmin 'Trusted VARs': /u/SquizzOC and /u/bad0seed with Trusted Telecom Broker /u/Each1Teach1x27 for Telecom. This weekly thread is here for you to discuss pricing and quotes on hardware and services or ask software questions. Last Post: January 11th.

Required Info for accurate answers:

  • Manufacturer
  • Part Number
  • Quantity
  • Service Type and Location

All questions welcome, keep in mind that there are of course more pieces to this IT puzzle we can dig out of the box

  1. Cloud Options (Hybrid, Azure, AWS, security and storage integrations and migrations…)
  2. Server configs and quote answers
  3. Storage Vendor options, details and selection
  4. Network hardware from routers, switches, load balancing, Aps…
  5. Security - firewalls, 2FA, cloud DNS, layer 7 services, antivirus, email, DLP….
  6. Client-side: Is it a really big quantity? User equipment doesn't have major negotiations without big numbers
  7. Bandwidth - Internet, MPLS, dark fiber, carrier SD-WAN
  8. Voice- SIP, Hosted VoIP, PRI etc.

As always, PMs welcome with your questions any time, not just Fridays.

Question about RHEL support

Sysadmin - 20 min 59 sec ago

My company runs a research computing cluster that currently runs on Solaris. For obvious reasons we want to get away from anything Oracle so we are thinking about switching to RHEL. Does anyone have experience with their enterprise support? How is it? Any experiences you can share, good or bad, would be helpful.

Switch port up and down

Sysadmin - 21 min 18 sec ago

I have a Cisco switch with a port that's going up and down and the device quits working until I shutdown the port and bring it backup.  


This is what show log returns:  


%LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface GigabitEthernet1/0/35, changed state to up %LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface GigabitEthernet1/0/35, changed state to down shows this over and over with about a 5 minute gap between each  


The end device is a camera the switch port is configured exactly like the other cameras on other switch ports. Same config and same cameras type.  


I have switched ports, cameras, and cable all have the exact same problem with the port going up and down and the camera shutting down. Duplex settings are set to auto exactly like the other cameras; I even tried to manually set the duplex to full 100mb on the camera and the switch port but the problem kept happening.  


My original thought was port security was blocking the device but I removed port security settings from that switch port config and it still had the problem.  


The strangest part is if I keep and constant ping on the device it will stay up but if I stop the ping it goes down within 20-30 minutes.  


Any ideas on whats going on or some troubleshooting I can try?

In linux, if say i have a symbolic link with no owner e.g.

lrwx... 500 501 ...... /mypath/myfile rwx ... root root ... /mypath/myfile.0

myfile is symbolic link to myfile.0 . Does it matter if I leave the unknown user and group as it is for myfile? Or should i change owner to root as well? thanks

The longstanding NASA-Russian partnership in space may be unraveling

Ars Technica - 27 min 11 sec ago

After an American Apollo and Soviet Soyuz spacecraft docked in orbit during the height of the Cold War, in 1975, the two leading space powers gradually worked more and more together on civil space activities. Over time, they forged a successful and, among astronauts and engineers at least, even a comfortable bond. But of late, that bond is fraying, and long-term it may unravel entirely.

The most immediate issue involves Dmitry Rogozin, appointed to lead the Russian space corporation Roscosmos in May 2018. Overtly political, Rogozin shares Vladimir Putin's antipathy toward the West. Following the Crimean crisis in 2014, Rogozin was one of seven Russian officials sanctioned by the Obama administration. In response, he taunted NASA, which relied then (and still does) on Russian Soyuz spacecraft to reach the International Space Station.

"After analyzing the sanctions against our space industry, I suggest to the USA to bring their astronauts to the International Space Station using a trampoline,” Rogozin, then a deputy prime minister of Russia over defense and space, tweeted in Russian at the time.

What happens after 11th of April with Client Apps

Developing Android Apps - 29 min 3 sec ago

Hello Community,

long-time reader, first post.

I have an issue with migration to FCM. Situation is as follows:- currently released version is 2.x- we are in heavy development for 3.0 (target release date: early June 2019)- 2.x still uses GCM client library (version 11.0.2)- we have migrated our backend to FCM- please don't ask why we still haven't migrated. Politics. :)

The big question is: what will happen with Apps that use GCM after 11th of April? I have found misleading information from Google, see:

" The GCM server and client APIs have been deprecated and will be removed as soon as April 11th, 2019. "


" What happens to my users who don't update their apps?

As long as users have GCM logic in their apps, they will still receive messages. FCM is backwards compatible with GCM, so even if you don't update your server endpoint now, you can still update your app's logic, and vice versa."

(as of https://android-developers.googleblog.com/2018/04/time-to-upgrade-from-gcm-to-fcm.html).

I assume that existing Apps will work just fine. The thing I cannot verify is whether token generation API will still be operable? (eg. for Users freshly installing App)

Does anyone have any *confirmed* information?
