Local storage is the most secure way to back up your files on Linux, says Swapnil Bhartiya. Here’s how to do it with Rsync on the command line.
Rsync is an extremely powerful tool and does more than just make copies of your files on your system.

I must be a fucking savant.

Data from a recent study entitled, The Highest Form of Intelligence: Sarcasm Increases Creativity for Both Expressers and Recipients, suggests that the delivery and deciphering of sarcasm offers psychological benefits that have been largely underappreciated and long overlooked.

“To create or decode sarcasm, both the expressers and recipients of sarcasm need to overcome the contradiction (i.e., psychological distance) between the literal and actual meanings of the sarcastic expressions. This is a process that activates and is facilitated by abstraction, which in turn promotes creative thinking.”

In the study, participants were randomly rotated through simulated conversation tasks that had one of three conditions: neutral (control), sincere, and sarcastic. After each conversation, participants were asked to complete unrelated “creativity” tasks. Those addressing the creativity tasks after sarcastic conditions consistently outperformed those attempting the tasks after sincere or control conditions.

“This suggests that sarcasm has the potential to catalyze creativity in everyone,” Columbia’s Galinsky told the Gazette.
People who don’t like sarcasm are the best; such confident, agreeable, quick-witted folk. More impressively, their negative conclusions regarding sarcasm are often founded upon strong analytic frameworks like raw emotion and insecurity, rather than notoriously unreliable approaches like rational observation and the scientific method. See what I did there? According to new research from Harvard Business School, Columbia Business School and INSEAD ...

Don't let you keyboard betray you. Learn how this wireless keylogger works, and protect yourself. #evilweek  
The “KeySweeper” is a tiny, arduino-powered wireless sniffer that captures data sent by your wireless keyboard to its receiver. That’s right—it’s a keylogger, and it doesn’t have to be plugged into your computer to work.

The Scars

This reminded me of traveling. Sometimes we get literal scars, and other times they're much more metaphorical. In any case, you can't truly live life without collecting a few scars along the way, imho...

Showing up for it was the key phrase to me. It's the only way I've ever imagined living. I was never one who enjoyed being an Armchair Traveler, for example. I had to be out there -- out in the world, whatever the cost, financial or physical. I had no choice then or now; it's part of my DNA, seeing the world. And just like the explorers of all ages, it had always driven me to want to see more. To me, it just feels right.

55% off Learn VHDL, ISE and FPGA by Designing a basic Home Alarm course coupon - $15
In 6 hours, you will become comfortable with designing in VHDL using ISE tools and test your design on a Basys2 board

Lectures 57

Video 6 Hours

Skill level intermediate level

Languages English

Includes Lifetime access

30 day money back guarantee!

Available on iOS and Android

Certificate of Completion

This course was designed to equip you with the knowledge and skill that will get you up to speed with FPGA Design in VHDL. You will be expected to have some basic knowledge on digital electronics such as the meaning of Flip Flops, Gates and Finite State Machine, and also some basics of programming language would help in the course.
Although the design flow will be dealt with in almost its entirety, the course starts from the basics and take you up to an intermediate level, where you will be able to take a design from a concept through the different stages of design until seeing the design work on a board.
The course is structured in four parts, starting with a simplistic view at how FPGA’s work and the resources that are available on a typical FPGA. The tool FPGA Editor will be used. Then an overview of ISE Flow will be presented in part 2, along with demos on how the tool is downloaded, installed and used. The third part of the course will explain and demonstrate how the most useful VHDL syntaxes are written, and at each step, the Technology Schematic is viewed to understand how VHDL codes are synthesized into logic.
The last part is about designing a Home Alarm System from the concept and State Diagram. A step-by-step approach is used to show all the stages of the flow, including writing of the codes, Synthesize, add constraints, run Implementation, Timing Analysis, Behavioural Simulation and Post implementation Simulation and Configuration of the FPGA and PROM on a Basys 2 board.
The course consists of 6 hours of videos, spread over 50 lectures, and provide demos to show how the tool is used effectively.

Is there a way to determine if I have the beta build ? It says that I am a beta tester, but when I click the Android app, it says last updated sometime in March, which doesn't seem to reflect the announcement made April 6th, that a new beta was released.

If you combine a passion for engineering with a pinch of photography and a dash of Android, you pretty much sum up what I enjoy the most.

+The restaurant looks really nice. +Food came out reasonably fast +Food was delicious (had the tequila al salmon - i think thats what its called, and it was really good) -The band is very loud. Had a hard time understanding when someone was speaking to me. It's like talking in a club (difficult). I'd go again for sure.

Great Italian pizza. It tastes great and is reasonably priced. Whatever you get, make sure you get it with Buffalo cheese. It jumps from tasting great to tasting GREAT.

I've never been a resort before so I can't give it a comparison rating. I have it a very good because I had a pretty good time there. The resort itself is nice ( the rooms are obviously not to North American standards - maybe motel level), but they do a good job with keeping it clean and stuff. Plus, its not like you'll spend a lot of time in your room, and if you do, you are doing it wrong. Very wrong. The food was good too, and they have a variety, but it tends to be the same variety everyday. At least from what I can remember ( I went 3 -4 years ago). But the food is decent. Unlimited drinks, who can wrong with that. They shut the bar down at like 11 I think. But its not a 24hour thing. The shows are actually really entertaining. I was always excited for the shows because they were funny, and they targeted a large variety of people. Very funny. The beach, gorgeous. The water is crystal clear, and the reefs protect you from the waves so its not like you'll get swept to sea or anything. Its just..calm. Also, its SUPER shallow. I think I walked a good 500m and was still able to touch the ground. The ground got too "weird" for me, so I walked back, but theres this hut in the middle of the ocean ( you can walk or swim there), and all these fish like to hang out there. You get a pair of FREE goggles ( you have to return it when you are done), and you just go snorkelling. Loved it. Awesome. The crowd, is more family orientated. If you are pretty young and expecting alot of people your age to party and stuff, wont find it here. Theres alot of kids and old people. If you just wanna enjoy the ocean, culture and stuff, its a good time for sure. Their is possibility of theft. i left $10 on the table and when I came back, it was gone. I assume the maid thought I was tipping her, but I wasn't. But I felt bad because they dont make much, and $10 to me, is nothing. Bring some extra cash and tip them well because your tip is probably more than they make a month. No joke. Overall, a good time. Would I go back ? Probably not because I'm still pretty young and I dont have kids, so I'd want more of the party scene, but maybe when I'm older Id go again. Hope that helps.
