Russia’s Proton rocket, which predates Apollo, will finally stop flying

Ars Technica - 1 hour 50 min ago

The Russian-manufactured Proton rocket has been flying into space since before humans landed on the Moon. First launched in 1965, the rocket was initially conceived of as a booster to fly two-person crews around the Moon, as the Soviet Union sought to beat NASA into deep space. Indeed, some of its earliest missions launched creatures, including two turtles, to the Moon and back.

But now, Russian officials confirm, the Proton rocket will finally reach its end. In an interview with a Russian publication, Roscosmos head Dmitry Rogozin said production of the Proton booster will cease as production shifts to the new Angara booster. (A translation of this article was provided to Ars by Robinson Mitchell, a former US Air Force Airborne Cryptologic Language Analyst). No new Proton contracts are likely to be signed.

Presently, Proton rockets are built at the Khrunichev State Research and Production Space Center in Moscow, then they're transported to a launch site in Baikonur in Kazakhstan. The Angara rocket, which has made just two test flights back in 2014, will be produced in a new factory in Omsk, a city in Siberia.

Cooling shroud, ABS, ASA or Xstrand? Which holds up best.

3D printing news - 1 hour 50 min ago

I'm going to have to print a new part cooling shroud soon. Mine's a wee bit close to the block, and it's deforming a bit. It's printed in ABS currently.

I've got some ASA and Corning Xstrand samples I scored at the EastCoast RepRap, and while I can find a bunch of info on strength, UV and print temps, I'm not finding much in the way of figuring out which of the three would hold up best for a part that will be close to the heat block.

I'm curious if anyone has any practical experience they can share.

Can I realistically learn web development in 6-12 months?

Learn Programming - 1 hour 51 min ago

I signed up for Codecademy and have completed a few of their lessons. I'm not sure what I'll do after Codecademy yet, I figured I'll worry about that once I get there. Is it realistic to be able to start doing freelance work in 6-12 months? Everywhere I've looked online, I've gotten different answers. Some say it'll take many years, some say it'll take a few months. I'm just trying to learn something that I can do as a side job to pay for an apartment while I go to college. I'm starting off with JavaScript right now on Codecademy. Is it a realistic goal to be able to do web development in within the next 6-12 months?

Execute ROOT cmds through Java Functions

Hi guys,

I'm looking for testing the execution of commands via Java Functions, and I can manage them to work properly, but with non-root commands. Example: cp, mv, and so on. But, how to run root ones? I saw that in Java, the 'su' must be added just before the main(s) command(s). (already tried)

A1: Java Function [ Return:temp Class Or Object:Runtime Function:getRuntime {Runtime} () Param: Param: Param: Param: Param: Param: Param: ] A2: Java Function [ Return: Class Or Object:temp Function:exec {Process} (String) Param:CMD Param: Param: Param: Param: Param: Param: ]

Example of working command (cp):

A1: Java Function [ Return:temp Class Or Object:Runtime Function:getRuntime {Runtime} () Param: Param: Param: Param: Param: Param: Param: ] A2: Java Function [ Return: Class Or Object:temp Function:exec {Process} (String) Param:cp /sdcard/Documents/my_file.txt /sdcard/Downloads Param: Param: Param: Param: Param: Param: ]

Thanks! ;)

Zx basic like environment?

Learn Programming - 2 hours 2 min ago

Looking back, ZX Spectrum was a perfect environment for kids. Simple, interactive and engaging. The language is not the best there is, but having a mix of text and canvas capabilities was awesome. Even c64 didn't have that IIRC.

Are there any similar modern environments? I can't think of anything comparable which would be as simple and engaging.

Can't decide between taking Harvard CS50 or the MIT Python course

Learn Programming - 2 hours 4 min ago

I will be a freshman majorimg in computer science at a university that uses mainly Python and C++ next year. I am newish to computer science. I learned some Java at the beginning of high school but don't remember much. On this sub people really recommend the Harvard course for beginners and I think it would give me a better understanding of everything. With the MIT course, it would focus on Python and I think that would really help prepare me for school. They both seem like they will be time consuming and I don't think I will be able to fit both in this summer. Does anyone have any advice? It would be very appreciated.

What to buy??

Looking to get a new laptop was able to narrow it down to 3 but still unsure🤔 open to ideas also.

Razer blade 15" Macbook Pro 15" Surface book 2 15"

A Laptop for College

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

I'd like to have anything under $1500, 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.**

No 2 in 1, just a laptop, good battery life would be ideal but not necessarily required

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

Not very important, I would be fine with lugging around a beefy laptop

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

Windows 10 of course

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

17" or above

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

Most likely will be doing CAD for engineering and gaming.

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

Not any certain games in particular however I would like to be able to run most if not all games at a decent framerate, i.e. 60 FPS or above

* **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, reliable build quality, finger-print reader would be nice but I can live without, optical drive, good input devices, a decent SSD for fast start up times, a pretty good graphics card, and a decently large hard-drive.

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

Will be taking this laptop to college and will be studying engineering so I would imagine it needs to be quite a beefy laptop to be able to run 3D modeling and CAD programs pretty well, however correct me if I am wrong.

Not able to intercept BT headset Play/Pause button

I've Skullcandy inkd wireless headset which comes with 3 buttons: vol up, down, play pause. I want to intercept play/pause button single click and remap it to play next track instead. I have successfully done it using "Automate" app but now I want to do it using tasker. I am running Tasker on OP6 with Android Oreo.

What I tried: - add event as autoinput key intercept but it didn't catch BT buttons. nothing shown in autoinput logs :( - use Tasker inbuilt HW media play/pause event but didn't work

Please help me. I believe tasker is powerful enough and I don't want to use any other app to achieve this.

Windows 10 Pre-login script

Hello Reddit,

I posted about this last week and thought I came to a solution, but I still haven’t been able to figure it out.

I wrote AHK code to create a GUI that changes the IP address of my computer, and I need it to execute and open BEFORE the user login. I’m running Windows 10.

So basically the process should go like this. Power on computer -> my GUI launches -> user fills in GUI and hits enter -> IP address is changed in background -> login screen appears so user can log into desktop.

Please help!

Anyone willing to mentor me doing a small hide and seek game?

Learn Programming - 2 hours 18 min ago

Hey guys! I wanted to do a multiplayer hide and seek mobile game. You see your cahracter from above (like in LOL) and every cahracter has a unique ability. Since I am a beginner and only have maybe 10-15 hours a week, I wanted to ask if that is too hard for me as a starting project or if it is possible and which coding lanmguage would be the best and easiest to use for this? Also, I wanted to know if someone has time to mentor me - you do not have to code, just guide me, tell me the next steps or my mistakes and help me finish the project. I am from germany, if that helps. Thank you!
