The software is designed to work with any Mac-compatible audio hardware and supports multiple channels of 8-, 16-, 24-, or 32-bit data with sample rates as high as the hardware will support.

Note: This application contains in-app and/or external module purchases.



Version 3.9:
  • Added support for automatic unit selection and factory calibration for PCB Model 633A01 digital accelerometer and Model 485B39 USB ICP interface


  • OS X 10.7 or later
  • CoreAudio-compatible hardware

SignalScope 3.9 - Audio signal analysis tool.

MacUpdate - Mac OS X - Sat, 10/20/2018 - 04:46


SignalScope builds on its predecessor's tradition of award-winning design and precision measurement capabilities by building on advanced technology developed for Faber Acoustical's flagship product, Electroacoustics Toolbox.

SignalScope's brand new interface places each signal analyzer tool in its own window, allowing users to multiple data displays simultaneously. Each analyzer display offers hardware-accelerated OpenGL graphics for fast on-screen drawing, and Quartz graphics for high-resolution off-screen drawing to PDF files or the printed page. Advanced cursor options enable users to zoom and pan data displays, in addition to pinpointing specific data points within a display for further inspection.

All analysis tools within SignalScope offer more advanced measurement configurations, which can all be saved in project files, along with the measurement data itself. Significant new features in SignalScope also include comprehensive AppleScript support, direct comparison of captured and live signals, and multi-channel analysis.

Kiosk PC access to SharePoint Online

Sysadmin - Sat, 10/20/2018 - 04:16

So we are setting up 6 kiosk pcs for access to an external e-learning website. We have around 150 employees who don’t have windows accounts as their job role doesn’t require it however they must do this e-learning.

So we have deployed Porteus Kiosk for the PCs which works wonderfully well for this single site however the company would also like these employees to access our intranet.

Now our company intranet is hosted on SharePoint Online with Office 365 so I have a major authentication issue.

The logical step would be create a user for all kiosk users but we are taking around 150 additional accounts.

Is there any way around this?

Using Linux I’ve lost and potential SSO, I thought maybe have a landing page that shows the password which changes every 8 hours or so but I would rather not display a shared logon if possible even if the account is super locked down with conditional access etc.

Thoughts? Anyone else have a similar use case?

Fluid 2.1.2 - Create site-specific browsers for your favorite Web apps.

MacUpdate - Mac OS X - Sat, 10/20/2018 - 04:14


Fluid gives your favorite Web apps a home on your Mac OS X Desktop.

Are you a Gmail, Facebook, Campfire or an insert-your-favorite-webapp-here fanatic? Do you have 20 or more browser tabs open at all times? Are you tired of some random site crashing your browser and causing you to lose your (say) Google Docs data in another tab? If so, site-specific browsers (SSBs) provide a great solution for your webapp woes. Using Fluid, you can create SSBs to run each of your favorite Web apps as a separate desktop application. Fluid gives any webapp a home on your OS X desktop including Dock icon, menu bar, and logical separation from your other Web browsing activity.

How does it work? Fluid itself is a very small application. When launched, Fluid displays a small window where you specify the URL of a webapp you'd like to run in a site-specific browser. Then provide a name, click 'Create' and you'll be prompted to launch the new native Mac app you've just created. Use it to run YouTube, GTalk, Flickr, Basecamp, Delicious, .Mac webmail, or any other webapp as a separate desktop application. Anytime you click a link to another site in an SSB, the link is opened in your system default Web browser, keeping your SSB dedicated to the original site you've specified.



Version 2.1.2:

Note: Now requires OS X 10.12 or later

FIX:
  • Clicking a Bookmark in the Bookmarks bar opens the link in the current tab


  • macOS 10.12 or later

Help on Segregating office networks.

https://imgur.com/AnU6ZyR

We are leasing an office space to a tax prep person who we share 1 at&t fiber line.

we want to split the network, and have each office in a separate network.

we have 5 available Static IP addresses from our ISP.

we are using the first IP address on our current router and everything is find, we were thinking of getting an additional router and setting it up with one of the remaining Static ip addresses.

I want to know if having two routers after the modem, would work.

Some help with For Loop, please

Tasker: Total Automation for Android - Sat, 10/20/2018 - 02:07

Don't laugh, but here comes Lazyperson... and I'm always looking for stuff to improve in my existing tasks:

I have a task that turns up (or down) my radio's volume by running AutoInput actions a set number of repeats, say 10 times, with a 300ms wait between this AI actions. Works like a charm. Using an app, of course.

But as you can imagine this could lead to getting to a volume level that is not the desired target if and when the volume was adjusted manually by, say, 3 steps (for whichever reason). My ocd demands the target volume to be always the same...

I now thought of using an AI Query to check for the desired target volume which is displayed as a number in the radio's app (when changing the volume). That also works.

Now I want to change my "volume up/down" task to use an AI Query action and run the AI inputs as many times as it is needed to reach the target volume. I believe I would need to run a for loop for that? But those are yet beyond my comprehension and I would kindly request some input as to how I would go about this?

Let's use the target number of 38. The current volume level number could be 28 or 32 or even 48.

Thanks for some input. :)

System Monitoring Advice

I have a VPS that has several services running across several users (small scale, <20 processes). I'm trying to find a way so that I can:

  1. Start them all up immediately on reboot (I understand I can use systemd? Will I be able to save output from the processes somewhere?)
  2. View information on these processes. Including CPU and RAM usage. Preferably in a web UI. Also noting that some of these processes spawn threads and I want to be able to monitor them as a whole (so a project may have processes A, B and C, and C spawns threads on and off. I hope to be able to see CPU usage of this project as a whole maybe, and also processes A, B and C (with its child threads), in a graph.)

Kubernetes soundssss like it might be what I want? But I'm not sure. I'm very lost heh and any help would be greatly appreciated?
