I'm an electronics technician and I make jewelry out of circuit boards and electronic components.
Check out my shop if that sounds like something you might be into. :)

Hello ladies,

I apologize for the off topic post, but I wanted to make you aware of some status changes for the community. There have been some changes to the way post moderation works.

I have chosen to leave the settings as follows:
Entries including links to whitelisted domains will be automatically posted. Entries containing links that have not been added to the whitelist will still require manual moderation. To add links to your whitelist, click below.

I have not yet created a set of urls to whitelist

I haven't been aware of a lot of spam coming into the community, so if the request of the community is to return things to fully open posting, I'll be happy to do so. If we stick with moderation for non-whitelisted urls, I ask for your help in developing the whitelist. Comment with urls and I will happily add them.

Poll #1784623 Post Moderation Settings

Which type of post moderation should we use?

Fully Open Posting (no moderation)
Some Moderation - Posts with non-whitelist urls moderated

Hello geeky ladies! I've recently started Stemming, a new collaborative blog/community site for women/girls interested in science, tech, engineering, and math, and thought it might be of interest to the community -- it's available at http://stemming.org! I hope those who are interested will join and possibly contribute to the blog! rock on, Clara

Subject:Hard Drive Questions!
Posted by:irishfire81.
Time:1:20 pm.
I've been in IT for eight years, but still have enormous gaping  holes of knowledge . . . perhaps because I simply happened into it, and never studied?

Anyhoo, two hard drive questions for you:

first, opinion!  Would you pay $45 for a 7200 rpm 500gb hitachi refurb, or $55 new?  Nothing protects data, and I'm often guilty of buying a new one instead of keeping my warranty information and going through the proper channels when things fail anyway.  The only exception is when I purchase through best buy, because they're the only retailer I've used that keeps my receipt info for me and lets me exchange warranty crap right on site, but then the price doubles!  The extra moolah is almost worth it when I consider how often I've swapped out hard drives, but not really.

Second:  I typically use enclosures or docks at work to make clones of hard drives or transfer data.  Now I need to do both for my home computers.  Can I skip the enclosure and use the second internal bay to get the job done?  Does it work exactly the same way, minus the hot-swapping, or do I need to adjust some things so that windows understands how to recognize the drive the way I want it to?  I realize I should know these things already, but I don't.  

Thanks for your help and opinions!

Subject:Scheduled Restart

Mood: frustrated.
Hi Ladies!

I'm trying to use a scheduled task to automatically restart a server every so often.

Unfortunately, every time I check the start time on my running tasks through msinfo32, none of them indicate that the machine has been rebooted.

Here's the run path and flags I'm using for the task:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\shutdown.exe -r -d:4:1 -f

Any ideas as to what I'm doing wrong?

Hi girls,
I don’t have any experience in building multi-user program. I have to build a conference program (as study project) and as the first step I should explain the different choices to build it. So I can make it as client-server program, p2p, or “replication” as the instructor said which I didn’t get until now what it does mean. :(
My questions:
  1. Is there other choice for building such programs?
  2. When I search about “replication” I understand it and it is about database usually so it requires server so we return to the client-server model. Is that right?… I really got so confused.
  3. Doesn’t p2p also needs some kind of sever?
  4. How NetMeeting works? I think my program should be similar to it
  5. I think If the program implemented to work in LAN network it MAY doesn’t need server but if it is for the web there should be a server. Am I right?

Hi Ladies,

We just had some troubles with a post in here. As a result, I would like to invite all of you to email me or post a comment in my journal if you see anything here that bothers you (my email's listed on the userinfo). I'll deal with things as quickly as I can. I'd appreciate an email if you see a comment thread going in a bad direction. While I try to keep an eye on things, I can't always keep a close eye on everything, so alerts are appreciated.

Have a great week, ladies,

My Sister in Law and I are starting our own business and we can't afford our own site/domain at the moment so we are using AngelFire.  The site itself I used Dreamweaver to do the design because it's quicker for me than typing out all the HTML and easier to link everything up.

I noticed when I was uploading the files to AngelFire that there are already certain files there that have different extensions and I'm not sure if it's ok to delete those files or not. I was working on my degree in Web Tech, but had to change majors (long story) before I got to this part.Screen shot of the problemCollapse )

Subject:C programming
Posted by:dana_cz.
Time:9:39 am.
Hello, I'm a bit of a newbie in C programming, so I was wondering if you could help me?

Basically, the program I'm working on is supposed to add characters up in a 36 numeric base, so that A = 10, B = 11, C = 12, etc. Let's say I have these two words:


If one word is shorter than the other, it will keep repeating


The result should be 32C864U.

Subject:C++ newbie!
Posted by:silverlightstar.
Time:5:45 pm.
Mood: uncomfortable.
I'm taking C++ as a requirement for my Web Tech degree at a local community college (Plan: Web design with some comfortable knowledge in server technology.).

However, I'm still dazed and confused when it comes to C++; it's not catching on for me and I'm far from used to that! I understand the basics of a function and calling a function, but I'm gaining a headache beyond that.

In other words, this class is kicking my butt and I would rather be returning the favor.

My question is this: Where (either on or offline) could I go for a decent book or tutorial on C++ that is specifically made for someone not used to programming (I have C++ for Dummies and it's making me feel like one!)?

Subject:Video Editing?
Posted by:obnox.
Time:6:55 am.
Can anyone recommend some video editing software? My camera films in mov files, so linux software probably won't work*. I prefer free/cheap, but feel free to suggest things that aren't. It's for YouTube, so quality only matters so much. Thanks!

*I have windows, I just don't use it.

Subject:College student in need of direction
Posted by:stephanyk.
Time:12:15 pm.
Mood: confused.
I'm pretty new to all this computer programming stuff. I taught myself HTML and CSS when I was in middle school/high school, but I never learned anything more advanced than that. I'm currently going to a community college and am working towards an Associate's degree in Internet Services Technology. I'm currently taking Java and C++, and I still have two more semesters-worth of classes to take. However, as I'm looking through jobs I could possibly qualify for when I graduate, I find most of them want Bachelor's degrees in Computer Science. I also know there are many specialties within CS, so I'm really not sure which way to go when I continue my schooling.

I originally started school hoping to work with web pages and the internet. That was my first love. But now that I'm in those programming classes, I find they're also enjoyable. It's still confusing right now, but I like working with the code (I particularly like C++), and trying to get it to do what I want. I could see myself doing it as a profession after I've learned it more and have become more proficient with it.

I guess my main struggle is this: which path would land me the better salaries and overall better job security in the long-run? Web/internet programming or software development? What type of program should I look for after I've graduated this one and continue on for my Bachelor's?

Hi, I was wondering if someone could help me.

I've just finished a year of web design and although it is not on the course curriculum, I feel like I should learn some kind of coding. I'm already quite good with CSS and HTML, and I tried to learn PHP from a book but I just can't do it. Does anyone know of any good online tutorials? I just want to learn as much as I possibly can about web design and coding. =P

Subject:Homegrown surveillance system
Posted by:redsonja.
Time:2:48 pm.
Mood: mellow.
Heya, I posted this on unixadmin and heard nothing but crickets, so will try again here. Hope no one minds.

I am interested in building a 4 camera CCTV home surveillance system. I like the idea of using ZoneMinder on Debian Edge so far, but I haven't actually gotten started yet. I've got beefier experience with Solaris but the software really was developed for Linux so I don't really want to go there unless I have to.

I also don't have my video capture card yet so recommendations are welcome. The interfaces either need to be standard coax or I need some sort of converter. I know one can send ethernet over coax, but can one practically send digital video over ethernet? (I do have Cat5E available.) After all this will be closed circuit - this traffic isn't going to hit anything else.

So, anyone got any helpful hints while this is still in the planning stages?
