@obsolesce Thanks! That scope is a tad bigger than the one I use for viewing, but should be just as easy to setup. Celestron makes a pretty robust mount for a smartphone to take pictures from something like that.
Obviously this will depend on the COVID situation where you are, but find a local astronomy club and go to one of their star parties, then you can look/use several different scopes and figure out which one might be a better fit.
Also, All of the astronomy resellers have really knowledgeable people and are more than happy to answer questions to help you get started.
Most of the images I take (except for really bright objects like the moon) are imaged over several nights and I'm layering 60 - 100+ pictures to make it. For my photography setup, it is a smaller scope so it is a larger field of view of the sky, it has a dedicated astronomy camera on it. I've never actually looked through my photography setup with an eye piece, I just have a computer sitting out with it controlling the mount, focuser, filter wheel, and camera. Its a time consuming process.
If you are wanting to get in to some of the longer astrophotography stuff, the cheapest way to start is with a DSLR, a lens and a star tracker. You can take some pretty incredible wide field shots with just that.
Even a lot of fiber services are like that now. And satellite. Upload costs more than download
Not exactly how it works.
Fiber are doing because they choose to use modems that are built that way (looking at oyu AT&T UVerse), or to prevent "abuse" of their network by people buying low cost consumer internet and running everything.
Satellite works that way because power to broadcast versus receive. So yes more expensive only because of hte cost to have a strong enough transmitter.
Just to make it clear, I'm using rclone sync to do the job on a headless Ubuntu container.
Revisiting this now two years later, as it's been that long since I last synchronized my personal OneDrive photo and video archives to Wasabi.
Most everything is great, except when doing a few --dry-run tests on some already-synchronized source/destination remotes, I noticed a few thousand files in total among several OneDrive archives result in a potential re-sync. Not a huge deal, except it's a slow process to sync.
The files themself didn't change. I verified from both the source and backup that the CRC is the same on a bunch of to-be re-synced files, but perhaps the modification time changed at the source due to other syncs or who knows.
I would like to force RClone to use checksum only when synchronizing. Is that possible with an rclone sync between OneDrive and Wasabi?
Microsoft is aware of a remote code execution vulnerability in the way that the Microsoft Server Message Block 3.1.1 (SMBv3) protocol handles certain requests. An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could gain the ability to execute code on the target SMB Server or SMB Client.
To exploit the vulnerability against an SMB Server, an unauthenticated attacker could send a specially crafted packet to a targeted SMBv3 Server. To exploit the vulnerability against an SMB Client, an unauthenticated attacker would need to configure a malicious SMBv3 Server and convince a user to connect to it.
The following workaround may be helpful in your situation. In all cases, Microsoft strongly recommends that you install the updates for this vulnerability as soon as they become available even if you plan to leave this workaround in place:
Disable SMBv3 compression
You can disable compression to block unauthenticated attackers from exploiting the vulnerability against an SMBv3 Server with the PowerShell command below.
I would agree in most situations no user needs to be admin on their own box. I think this is the way to go about things. Of course there are a lot of other factors as others have mentioned. However, if someone at your company tells you to compromise, what about having a seperate admin account that they only use when necessary? Then the rest of the time they use their regular account.
Perhaps. But actually logging into an admin account means they they would be logged in and have admin rights full time while logged on, and that works around the whole thing.
As a compromise, I think sticking to exceptions being able to temporarily obtain local admin rights, with warning, acceptance message, etc. That will force consciousness of the fact.
Are you using a product that allows for this temporary gaining of local admin rights?
Yes you could say that.
Why so coy?
Not intentionally, just wanting to stay on the main discussion.
You can only have a point of presence where you are registered. So if you want an HQ somewhere but do no business there, that's generally allowed. For example, you can have a headquarters in Nicaragua while having no incorporation there, and be incorporated in Panama and have no staff there... but in setting up this way you are barred from doing business in either country, but are free to do business with any other country.
I'm a bad one to ask for this because I only have my RHCSA. I don't know why I don't do more certs, I still do all of the learning for these things, Im just not a good test taker so I think that makes me hold back a lot when I look at this stuff.
Don't know about you guys, but most people use dark themes because they strain their eyes with the light themes.
But the problem is not the theme, because you shouldn't get eye strain with a light theme. The real problem is that the monitor is set way too bright. Like a lot. Monitor brightness should be about equal to the ambient light level. Bright monitors make for punchy images but horrible ergonomics.
I thought it would be good to give an update on how the headphones are holding up to my usage and expectations.
Just a reminder, I got the Sennheiser PXC 550. They are over/around-ear Bluetooth noise-cancelling headphones.
So I've been using them almost daily now for the past almost 4 months, about 45-60 minutes each way to/from work on the train. I don't always use the noise cancelling on the train, but when I do, it shuts up what I am trying to avoid hearing pretty well. 🙂 I also use them at home for watching Udemy courses, at work, music for R&R at home, and sometimes for a video game. I usually use them wirelessly, but sometimes I hook them up to my computer's USB while listening when they need a charge. The charge still lasts well over 20+ hours. I don't time it, but it lasts weeks before needing a charge. Definitely 2+ weeks, depending on usage, which I mentioned above, give or take.
I found out a co-worker has had the same pair for years, and they also still look and work like new.
To wrap up, they are definitely holding up well, and surpassed my expectations. I definitely recommend!
