In response to: The moving ball illusion

Comment from: Do I know you? [Visitor]

Do I know you?
I guess it is the same with similar optical illusions: the lens of the eye is not flat (obviously) and therefore every straight line will be bent when hitting the retina. The fascinating “software” of the brain of course corrects these things into straight lines. (btw, your smartphone camera software will do the same.) But now there are no straight ones. What to do? Not only this, when moving your head / eyes the lens moves relative to the image. Of course focusing on another part of the image makes the lens refocus which causes it to deform causing again shifting of the lines. And when something is moving, even only seen in the corner of the eye, it will try to track that movement which causes another refocusing. In photography you get line distortions depending the focal length. Especially with lower focal length (wide angle). I believe that this page gives you a short impression on what line distortion is: https://clickitupanotch.com/lens-distortion/ I hope my explanations are close enough to the real phenomenon behind this optical illusion.

In response to: Compiling omniORB 4.1.5 and omniORBpy 3.5 with Python 2.7

I do not know since when (currently available version is 4.2.3) but omniORBpy provides a shell script that creates a package for you (copy built files):
sh src/lib/omniORBpy/bin/scripts/binrelease.sh
I use this for Windows builds. As this is a shell script one has to execute it in an environment that supports it (like Cygwin, etc.).

In response to: Which is the latest version of yii-user

Comment from: Benny [Visitor]

Benny
Nice read! Yii uses MVC approach to developing applications. This is an extremely convenient approach where data, controlling and communicating processes and visual entities are kept completely separate, and the information is exchanged between them as required. This is a clean, efficient way of designing classes while developing, and keeps different kinds of code from getting mixed up.

It sounds like files with the extension .ps1 are associated with Notepad and not Powershell. Right click the file in Explorer click Properties, then Change… from the General tab to change the file association Powershell.

In response to: Change Power Plan when application starts

Comment from: Kusaywa [Visitor]

Followed the directions with no problem until I got to “Finally, add the program to your start menu Startup folder.” What am I adding to the Startup folder? I created a Microsoft.PowerShell_profile.ps1 file but when I place that in the Startup folder it only opens up in notepad. Any help would be appreciated as this is exactly what I’m looking for. Thanks

logistics app debugging tool

logistics app debugging tool - This tool allows you visualize/plot multiple points (lat, long)/(latitude, longitude) on the map. It also allows you to specify a shape (circle/square/marker), a color and a comment for each of the points. Only lat, long for each line is mandatory. Providing color, shape and comment is optional.

The owner of a calendar may be changed. You add specific users to access the calendar and give them full rights. That user then changes the calendar settings to remove the original owner’s rights to the calendar. The calendar is transferred. Alternatively you can just export the calendar as iCal and import it into another account.

When someone leaves a company there is a formal process to handle it which may include revoking access to a number of other systems, door key entry, etc. You could just solve this with an extra step to reassign any calendars or in fact any Google Docs they might have to other people.

Typically you’d put all the shared calendars under the administrators account. This is the first email address used to create the Google account and, as far as I know, can’t be deleted.

Regarding creating extra accounts, the administrator can create an account which is impossible to login to. The administrator can then assign different users different levels of access to the various Apps available on that account.

I know one company that has 40,000 people in its Google Apps for Business account and it takes a small army to run it. There’s lots of administrator tools you can buy/licence from the Marketplace to help with these kinds of housekeeping jobs.

When you scale up like that you can afford your own developers and get them writing tools to help the business run it. The Google API is comprehensive; what you see in the admin pages is just a fraction of what functions are available.

In response to: Setting up company wide group calendars in Google Apps

Comment from: Scott Williamson [Visitor]

In order to pull this off, you’re creating an ‘extra’ calendar on your account and sharing it with the company. What happens when you leave and your account is deactivated?

A) If the account goes away, how do you migrate this en masse all the events on a given calendar to a new vict- er, admin?

or, B) How do you create a group calendar this is user account independent without creating a dummy account that is a security problem waiting to happen?

Thank you for this.

I had a problem with a bright green highlight showing for the background color of directories on an NTFS drive. Changing the line in .dir_colors from:

OTHER_WRITABLE 34;42 # dir that …

to:

OTHER_WRITABLE 94;40 # dir …

made it more bearable.
