What can I do to improve adhesion on BuildTak like surfaces?

3D printing news - 1 hour 51 min ago

I currently own an Ender 3, and it has a heated BuildTak-like surface. I've been told I shouldn't use gluestick on it so I'm not sure how else I can improve my bed adhesion. I haven't has any issues before when printing smaller objects, but for larger prints, the areas further away from the centre of the bed tend to warp as it's further away from the heating element and in some cases the entire print slides/lifts off the bed.

What I'm currently trying to print are the wings of the Spitfire Mk XVI by 3dlabprint.com

I've had 4 print failures so far, all due to the wings lifting or sliding off the bed. The largest section warped, and the smaller sections toppled over a few hours into the print. I had no issues with the fuselage so I'm guessing it's due to the smaller cross-section of the wings.

Suggest me a mid-range gaming laptop

Howdy

I'm in the market for a new laptop after my last one.. had an unfortunate incident with the wheels of a car.

My budget limit is around $1400USD.

I've done the research my limited knowledge of laptops can manage and I think the Dell New XPS 15 and the Inspiron 15 7000 are contenders. I'm not a heavy gamer, but would like to be able to dabble in a few relatively new (2016-now) games if I fancy it.

Am I right in thinking these two would be suitable for my needs? While hoping for something that could handle average gaming needs, I was hoping for a high resolution screen (at least FHD) and not bulky/ugly like so many gaming laptops are.

Of course any other suggestions are welcome!

What is everybody's opinion on freeCodeCamp ?

Learn Programming - 2 hours 5 min ago

As most of you know, freeCodeCamp is a free website in where you learn html/css/javaScript mostly. I have been using it for a few years now on and off (when school is not busy) and I think it is ok. I am a compE student and we don't ever touch javaScript in any of my classes I don't think (I think it is an elective) and surprising a lot of compE jobs want applicants to know one scripting language.

I think the problem with the website is something they can't help themselves with. I really think javaScript is a horrible first language to learn (I would love to hear your argument if you disagree) because of the way functions and data types are written. My first programming (or scripting) language I attempted to learn was JS on freeCodeCamp. I then went to take my first really programming class (C) the following semester and nothing was making sense. I picked up so many bad habits while learning JS like not declaring data types in function parameters and such that I was really struggling with my C class. So essentially I tried to forget JS and tried to re-learn programming the "proper" way. After I took and passed that C class, things were making a lot more sense. When I first started learning on freeCodeCamp, I felt that they rushed everything and even the syntax wasn't sticking.

I also think the site gives people this optimism of "oh, I don't have to go to school or a bootcamp, if I just pass all these challenges cough cough copy/paste then I can get a real web development job. I get this vibe from reading the freeCodeCamp subreddit.

However, I do think the website is good because it is convenient and somewhat helpful. When I am bored I attempt a challenge and lately I have been drilling myself on the website.

So I am curious, what is your opinion of the website? If not, what do you recommend instead?

Is a laptop with i3-6006U good enough for college work for CS engineer?

I have a i5 7th gen + GTX 1060 pc at home to game on and do any heavy work on it. I'm going to third year now and I need a laptop for the same.

I'm getting i3-6006U at INR 26,000 (Asus Vivobook X507UA-EJ179T)

and i5-8250U with 940MX 2GB at INR 39,000 (Asus VivoBook R542UQ-DM251T).

Which one should I go for? I will game on my home's pc only. The laptop will mostly be used for programming java, making android apps using android studio etc as far as I know.

How does i3-6006U compare to i5-8250U? I don't want atleast the android studio to shit on me because of processor and these benchmark differnence looks huge to me (UserBenchmark).

Help learning to code to automate research work

Learn Programming - 2 hours 24 min ago

Hello. I’ve coded simple basic tutorials in some languages before but never really developed a full project. Im trying to learn more to help automize a monotonous part of my work. Essentially, I work with images which contain lots of broken up plant parts that need photoshopped back together like a puzzle piece. This work realisitically is rather simplistic in nature as most reassembly is fairly obvious and just simple Rotation and drag+drop. So my questions mainly are) what language would be best for this? Where could I learn more about coding some thing like that? What are some good available resources in learning to create something like this?

Laptop for everyday use, flight training and occasional gaming.

Total budget and country of purchase:
A little over $1k USD, Latin America

Do you prefer a 2 in 1 form factor, good battery life or best specifications for the money?

Best specifications for the money.

How important is weight and thinness to you?

I don't care about weight that much nor about thinness, but an easily manageable laptop is always welcomed.

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

Windows

Do you have a preferred screen size?

15"

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

I want to run flight simulators mainly. Light video, audio and photo editing, I do play occasionally but I wouldn't consider myself a "gamer".

If you're gaming, do you have certain games you want to play? At what settings and FPS do you want?

PUBG or LoL with friends from time to time. I'd like to run the flight simulators at highish settings but I'm aware my budget might not be enough to get an optimal experience.

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

Good keyboard is way too subjective so I'll just mention I had a 2010 Macbook Pro and I absolutely loved that one. I'm spoiled by the aluminum on that Mac but I guess I could tolerate nice feeling plastic builds. No interest or need for touch screens. I won't even mention the touch pad because I don't think I'll get something close to the Macbook and I use a mouse half the time.

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

So I was in love with my 2010 Macbook Pro for everyday use, I adored the older OSXs (Snow Leopard - Mavericks), the intuitive interfaces and the cohesiveness with the hardware. That being said she's long gone and I'm ready to jump back to Windows.
Please consider some of the better options are not available in Latin America, neither the upgrades for some of the brands. I checked the range at a local store today and found two laptops within my budget that were Imo good enough but I'm honestly a bit lost at specs these days (I'm getting old and I spent two years away from computers).

The first one is a Lenovo Legion Y720-15IKB. The specs seemed great (Idk though), I'm not a big fan of the design but I didn't dislike it that much either.

The second one is an HP 15-CE005LA. Similar specs and design, a bit less expensive and the keyboard and surface felt better to me.

Both had 8GBs of RAM which doesn't concern me because that's an easy future upgrade. There were some Asus republic of gamers laptops there but I seriously disliked the designs and the branding lol.

Obligatory English is not my first language blah blah comment. Grammar might be off but I think it's clear enough. Please help me reddit, I know nothing about new computers.

Motivation (and desperation) in learning to code

Learn Programming - 2 hours 29 min ago

I have struggled immensely throughout my learning journey. My first attempts at coding began with Usborne BASIC language books written for kids to code small games on the plethora of home computers back in the 1980s. I didn’t understand the concepts but I did love seeing how what I typed from a book translated into something I could play with.

In the 90s I was introduced to Pascal in high school, and again programming theory didn’t really make any sense - my drive was manipulating the computer to do certain things. I would try and try again to ‘get’ coding, and made a biggest effort in 2000 when starting an IT degree, but this lasted only a year. Across a large span of time I bought and borrowed numerous books on languages such as C and C++, tried online courses, began and quit more formal studies. And the same pattern emerged - I would start well and with great enthusiasm - and then hit some obstacle, become overwhelmed, and feel unable to continue.

A couple years back I found Free Code Camp and started the local chapter on Facebook for Meetups, and this again only lasted for a brief period. I moved on to try Treehouse and found The Odin Project last year, and even spent a good chunk of money on Launch School, an online curriculum which is very similar to TOP in the depth of content (but obviously they can afford to have paid staff to assist). I gave up on coding in the end as I figured I just wasn’t interested enough to maintain momentum.

Later last year I began to have physical and mental health issues that caused my work in I.T. technical support to be unbearable. I’ve worked in this arena for close on 20 years, and in the past decade have had these periods where I sink low into fatigue and despair, feeling too unwell to face the day’s duties. It seems that internal and external stressors become intolerable after a certain period of time.

Last week I was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as a result of early childhood trauma. I thought that was a diagnosis only given to war veterans or those who suffered from a severe accident, but apparently it encompasses a wide variety of experiences. And it’s at the root of these experiences of failure and disappointment that have repeated time and time again.

I decided to return this year to attempt to learn to code as I knew I couldn’t return to tech support. I began with a local college but found that again my intolerance to the stress from the workload led to me withdrawing. In one of our assignments there we were utilising Github and I found my repos while working on The Odin Project. I jumped back to the website and loved the new design and began working through it again.

What has grabbed me the most is the section “Gearing Up”. There is so much useful information in there that has become almost a daily reference for me. I am working through Learning How to Learn, the most popular MOOC in the world, to work out the best strategies to tackle learning with my challenges. Some of the best ideas from the MOOC are in that section. And I’ve noticed that there is a lot in the curriculum of TOP that come from the MOOC, such as the questions at the start of each section. It’s largely this that has kept me coming back (however slowly right now).

As I work through treatment of my concerns, I find doing just a little bit from Web Development 101 or a MOOC is really beneficial. I have typically kept myself isolated, but I can see the value in sharing in a community of developers.

A YouTube Subscriber Counter With A Tetris Twist

Hack a Day - 2 hours 46 min ago

When it comes to YouTube subscriber counters, there’s not much wiggle room for creativity. Sure, you can go with Nixies or even more exotic displays, but in the end a counter is just a bunch of numbers.

But [Brian Lough] found a way to jazz things up with this Tetris-playing YouTube sub counter. For those of you not familiar with [Brian]’s channel, it’s really worth a watch. He tends toward long live-stream videos where he works on one project for a marathon session, and there’s a lot to learn from peeking over his virtual shoulder. This project stems from an earlier video, posted after the break, which itself was a condensation of several sessions hacking with the RGB matrix that would form the display for this project. He’s become enamored of the cheap and readily-available 64×32 pixel RGB displays, and borrowing an idea from Mc Lighting author [toblum], he decided that digits being assembled from falling Tetris blocks would be a nice twist. [Brian] had to port the Tetris-ifying code to Arduino before getting the ESP8266 to do the work of getting the subs and updating the display. We think the display looks great, and the fact that the library is open and available means that you too can add Tetris animations to your projects.

None of this is to say that more traditional sub counters can’t be cool too. From a minimalist display to keeping track of all your social media, good designs are everywhere. And adding a solid copper play button is a nice touch too.

[Project Share]Self-purging Clipboard Manager/History Overlay

Hello all.

I used to use Swiftkey, but after several recent updates, accessing the clipboard manager was rather obnoxious. I moved to Gboard, especially after they added the automatic space after punctuation. The only thing Gboard didn't have that Swiftkey has that I missed was a clipboard manager with a history. Tasker to the rescue! I created a clipboard manager that maintains a 3 hour clipboard history (this can be changed) that you can copy from if you need an old clipboard snippet.

This project is inspired by /u/joaomgcd's Read Later List project.

If you're feeling lazy, you can download the XML for the project right here.

PREREQUISITES: You will need to have the AutoApps, AutoTools, and optionally the AutoNotification plugins for this project to work.

N.B. When describing the configuration of any actions, if I don't mention a field, leave it at its default value.

STOP. PLEASE READ!! Throughout this project, we'll be using a tilde (~) as our item separator in lieu of a comma in certain areas, as sometimes copied text contains a comma, which can throw off the entire JSON table. Please be aware of this if you are manually building the project.

The first task we're going to build is called "Reset Clipboard," a clear/reset of the JSON where the clipboard content will be stored. This will allow us to reset the table if something goes wonky, and initialize it for first use. The variables used here will be elaborated on further in the guide.

The first action is to clear the variable where the JSON is stored.

A1: Variable Clear [ Name:%Clipboard Pattern Matching:Off Local Variables Only:Off ]

Next, we'll need to create a clean JSON that can be written to.

A2: AutoTools Json Write [ Configuration:Separator: ~ Json Input: %Clipboard Add to Array Key: items Array Object Keys: text~time Array Object Values: %CLIP|%TIME Arrays Separator: | Timeout (Seconds):60 ]

We'll then store the "clean" JSON in the variable cleared above.

A3: Variable Set [ Name:%Clipboard To:%clipboard Recurse Variables:Off Do Maths:Off Append:Off ]

Run this task once to prepare the JSON table and its variable.

Next, we'll need to build the profile that will actually take the clipboard's contents, and add them to the JSON. It is called "Add Clipboard Content To Clipboard Manager."

Event: Variable Set [ Variable:%CLIP Value:* User Variables Only:Off ]

First, we'll need to read the JSON, and ensure that whatever we just copied isn't already in the clipboard manager already, so a duplicate entry isn't made. This is done using the value filter on the dynamic system variable "%CLIP."

A1: AutoTools Json Read [ Configuration:Simple Mode: true Json: %Clipboard Fields: text(),time() Filter Fields: text() Filter Values: %CLIP Contains All: true Separator: , Timeout (Seconds):60 ]

Once we've ensured that this is a new snippet, we'll add it to the clipboard JSON.

A2: If [ %text(#) ~ 0 ] A3: AutoTools Json Write [ Configuration:Separator: ~ Json Input: %Clipboard Add to Array Key: items Array Object Keys: text~time Array Object Values: %CLIP|%TIME Arrays Separator: | Timeout (Seconds):60 ]

Then, we'll write the JSON to a global variable.

A4: Variable Set [ Name:%Clipboard To:%clipboard Recurse Variables:Off Do Maths:Off Append:Off ]

Next, we'll create the profile that purges old content out of the clipboard manager. I have it set to purge content older than three hours, but if you want to lengthen/shorten that, it can be done in step A4.

Profile: Purge Old Clipboard Content (223) Time: Every 1h

The first step will to be to read the variable where the JSON is stored.

A1: AutoTools Json Read [ Configuration:Simple Mode: true Json: %Clipboard Fields: text(),time() Separator: , Timeout (Seconds):60 ]

We'll need to grab the current system time, and put it into a variable we can modify so we can compare against it to purge old content. We'll then grab just the hour section, and modify the variable to contain just that.

A2: Variable Set [ Name:%purgetime To:%TIME Recurse Variables:Off Do Maths:Off Append:Off ] A3: Variable Section [ Name:%purgetime From:1 Length:2 Adapt To Fit:Off Store Result In: ]

This is the step where you can modify how long you want to keep content. Just modify the subtraction value to however many hours you want to keep content.

A4: Variable Subtract [ Name:%purgetime Value:3 Wrap Around:23 ]

Because Tasker keeps time in 24 hour format, we'll want to modify it to perform the comparison easier.

A5: If [ %purgetime > 12 ] A6: Variable Subtract [ Name:%purgetime Value:12 Wrap Around:0 ] A7: End If

Now, you'll need to do a loop through every item in the JSON to compare it against your PurgeTime to see if it's eligible to be purged.

If it is, then the content will be removed from the JSON.

A8: For [ Variable:%time Items:%time() ] A9: Variable Section [ Name:%time From:1 Length:2 Adapt To Fit:Off Store Result In:%calctime ] A10: If [ %calctime > 12 ] A11: Variable Subtract [ Name:%calctime Value:12 Wrap Around:0 ] A12: End If A13: If [ %calctime < %purgetime ] A14: AutoTools Json Write [ Configuration:Separator: ~ Json Input: %Clipboard Prettify: true Delete Paths: items.time Delete Values: %time Exact: true Arrays Separator: | Timeout (Seconds):60 ] A15: Variable Set [ Name:%Clipboard To:%clipboard Recurse Variables:Off Do Maths:Off Append:Off ] A16: End If A17: End For

Ok. So we have all this backend stuff that's adding snippets to the clipboard, and automatically purging it after a set time. How do we actually view and interact with the content? With just one, simple (haha, not really) command!

Normally, I'm not one to create named tasks, and just create ad hoc tasks. In this case though, we'll want to create a task called "Show Clipboard Manager" that we can reference in a couple different places.

Show Clipboard Manager

First, we'll want to read the JSON to get its content to display.

A1: AutoTools Json Read [ Configuration:Simple Mode: true Json: %Clipboard Fields: text(),time() Separator: , Timeout (Seconds):60 ]

We'll want to join all the clipboard snippets into a single variable to make it easier to read and act upon.

A2: Variable Join [ Name:%text Joiner:~ Delete Parts:Off ]

If there's nothing in the clipboard manager, we'll show a simplified window that states as much.

A3: If [ %text(#) ~ 0 ] A4: AutoTools Web Screen [ Configuration:Screen Preset: Card List Display Mode: Overlay Source: /storage/emulated/0/AutoTools/cardlist/page.html Toast Duration: 5000 Width: 300 Height: 130 Gravity: Center Animation: Zoom In Show Duration: 500 Hide Duration: 250 Drag: Not Draggable Close Button: Top Right Close On Command: true Search Color: #ffffff Filter With Search: true Command Prefix: search Drawer Width: 80% Card Titles: Clipboard history is empty. Card Buttons: Close Accent Color: #01579B Max Card Widths: 90% Min Card Widths: 90% Title Text Size: 20 Subtitle Text Size: 22 Card Padding: 10 Card Alignment: Center Item Separator: , Timeout (Seconds):30 ]

If there is actually content to display, we'll want to show it!

A5: Else A6: AutoTools Web Screen [ Configuration:Screen Preset: Card List Display Mode: Overlay Source: /storage/emulated/0/AutoTools/cardlist/page.html Toast Duration: 5000 Width: 300 Height: 360 Gravity: Center Animation: Zoom In Show Duration: 500 Hide Duration: 250 Drag: Not Draggable Close Button: Top Right Wait For Command: true Title Icon: android.resource://net.dinglisch.android.taskerm/hd_content_new_event Title Button Commands: ResetClipboard Search Color: #ffffff Filter With Search: true Command Prefix: search Drawer Width: 80% Card Titles: %text Card Buttons: Copy~Remove Accent Color: #01579B Max Card Widths: 90% Min Card Widths: 90% Title Text Size: 20 Subtitle Text Size: 22 Card Padding: 10 Card Alignment: Top Item Separator: ~ Timeout (Seconds):30 ]

Now, we'll need to configure the buttons on each card allowing you to either add the snippet to your current clipboard, or manually remove it from your list.

A7: If [ %atcommand Set ] A8: If [ %atcommand ~ *=:=Copy ] A9: AutoTools Web Screen [ Configuration:Display Mode: Close Toast Duration: 5000 Height: 400 Gravity: Center Animation: Slide In From Top Show Duration: 500 Hide Duration: 250 Timeout (Seconds):30 ] A10: Variable Search Replace [ Variable:%atcommand Search:=:=Copy Ignore Case:Off Multi-Line:Off One Match Only:Off Store Matches In: Replace Matches:On Replace With: ] A11: Set Clipboard [ Text:%atcommand Add:Off ] A12: Flash [ Text:Copied! Long:Off ] A13: Else If [ %atcommand ~ *=:=Remove ] A14: Variable Search Replace [ Variable:%atcommand Search:=:=Remove Ignore Case:Off Multi-Line:Off One Match Only:Off Store Matches In: Replace Matches:On Replace With: ] A15: AutoTools Json Write [ Configuration:Separator: ~ Json Input: %Clipboard Prettify: true Delete Paths: items.text Delete Values: %atcommand Exact: true Arrays Separator: | Timeout (Seconds):60 ] A16: Variable Set [ Name:%Clipboard To:%clipboard Recurse Variables:Off Do Maths:Off Append:Off ] A17: AutoAppsHub SendCommand [ Configuration:Command: ClipboardManager Timeout (Seconds):60 ] A18: End If

Now we need to create a profile that calls the action we just built to show the clipboard manager itself. This is based on calling an AutoApps command.

Profile: Show Clipboard Manager (226) Event: AutoApps Command [ Configuration:Command Filter: ClipboardManager ] Enter: Show Clipboard Manager (219)

That's all you need! An additional optional step you can do is create a quick action tile to easily access your clipboard from anywhere. If you don't want to do this, you do not need the AutoNotification plugin, and you can be finished now!

This is a fairly simple task. I am only using tile number 4 as I'm already using the other tiles for other projects.

Clipboard Manager Tile (225) A1: AutoNotification Tiles [ Configuration:Tile: AutoNotification 4 Command: ClipboardManager Label: Clipboard Manager Icon: android.resource://net.dinglisch.android.taskerm/hl_ab_content_paste State: Active Hide Notifications: true Timeout (Seconds):60 ]

And there you go! You now have a self-purging clipboard manager that you can access and copy from any screen! Please let me know if you have any questions, and I'll be happy to answer them!

[C++] is static memory always created at compile time and why dynamically allocate single instance variables?

Learn Programming - 2 hours 49 min ago

I have three questions regarding dynamic memory allocation that I need help on, can someone help me out? thank you.

  1. I hear dynamic memory is created at run time and static memory is created at compile time. if so, what if I take user input for the length of the statically allocated array? then doesn't that mean it's created at run time? can someone explain this to me?
  2. I hear that to prevent memory leaks, its not good to reallocate memory in a dynamically allocated array without first deallocating it but wouldn't deallocating it wipe the memory? what if I want to increase the size of the array but keep the values, how would I do that?
  3. If dynamic memory allocation is often used when the programmer is unsure about how much memory to allocate, then why do people dynamically allocate single instance variables like int or char? doesn't the memory used for single instance variables remain constant? dynamically allocating an int won't exactly let people store larger numbers anyways so shouldn't dynamic memory allocation be meant for arrays?

Core XY or prusa tyoe printer?

3D printing news - 2 hours 51 min ago

I am in quite a pickle...I own a tevo tarantula and I am seriously thinking about buying another printer. The problem is that I don't knpw whether to buy another prusa type printer or a corexy. I have seen the new creality for 200€ m, but I have also been looking at the flsun 3d cube for around that price, plus I get two dual extruders and a touchscreen for like 50 bucks more. Also, the build volume is like 26x26x35, which is awesome. I am leaning towards the flsun but I would like to know if you have some experience with cube printers and if they can perfom better. Needless to say I am poor... so more than 300 bucks is too much. Thank you in advace, I love you guys

Looking for Gaming Laptop w/ 1060 6gb and 75hz+ refresh rate with these specs

* **Total budget and country of purchase:**

My budget is "flexible" but I'm looking for hopefully no more than $1500 in the US

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

2 in 1 is probably not possible with what I want, neither is good battery life. Im more looking for the best specs for my money

* **How important is weight and thinness to you?**

Not much at all

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

Win 10

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

Indifferent for the most part but hopefully 15"+

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

Gaming mostly, AAA titles and graphically demanding games, not many indie

* **If you're gaming, do you have certain games you want to play? At what settings and FPS do you want?**

Battlefield 1/V, Fallout 4/76, PUBG, R6S, Runescape (Mainly Fallouts and R6S)

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

I specifically want a 1060 6gb or higher as a dedicated graphics chip, an intel 7700hq or higher for processor (but I can live with 6700hq or equivalent), a 75hz or higher refresh rate for the screen, hopefully with g-sync but not required, 12gb or higher RAM, and either 256gb SSD or 1TB+HDD plus some amount of SSD that isn't SSHD.

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

Im just a gamer who needs a new laptop as I cannot bring my desktop back and forth between where I go, portability isn't a problem as I have a backpack I can carry it in without worrying too much on weight, but the most important things are that I want the hardware to experience over 60fps gaming without worrying about a 60hz monitor drawing me back, even if the fps is more stable I still want to be able to experience it above that mark. Cant seem to find any within my budget bar the GL702VS-AH73, but it has a 75hz monitor and I wanted to see if there was a possibility of higher refresh rate monitors that still retain good colour quality.

Replacing a theme's logo.svg with my own doesn't work?

I'm subtheming with Bootstrap in Drupal 8 and trying to replace the default logo.svg with my own .svg image. I tried renaming my image to logo.svg and replacing the default one, giving it a custom path and uploading it directly (which I found out is not supported by default). None of these have worked. I'm confused because the default logo for Bootstrap loads fine, so I thought maybe I messed up exporting my logo from Adobe Illustrator? However, after exporting 5 different .svg files with varying settings, I had no success.

I'd like to find a solution if possible as I think a .svg image will look much cleaner than a .png one.
