How much RAM do you need? How much RAM you need in a system depends on what you intend to do with it, how long you intend to keep it, and whether or not you can upgrade your memory post-purchase. This last point is important, as many high-end laptops have eliminated user-upgradeable RAM in order to reduce system thickness by roughly six nanometers. Adding additional RAM to any laptop generally increases power consumption by a measurable (if small) amou
Copy.com, the cloud storage service that offered near-unlimited space and huge bonuses for referrals, announced today they’re shutting down on May 1st, 2016—leaving more than a few people with dozens or hundreds of gigs of data to migrate. Copy, and its business-focused cloud storage service, CudaDrive, are subsidiaries of Barracuda Networks, which announced the shutdown today first in the form of pop-up notifications to its users, and then eventually in a
When you can't create the Windows 10 Recovery Drive, try these three fixes The words you don't want to read: "We can't create a recovery drive on this PC." These workarounds should help in most situations. If you’re running Windows 10, you need to create a recovery drive—a bootable flash drive that will allow you to restore your system from a restore point, an image backup, or through a complete reinstall. There’s no single solution to this probl
Excellent article by James Perry I founded a new tech-startup called Signal Analytics with an old University friend, Fedor Dzjuba of Linnworks. We are building a modern, cloud-based version of OLAP cubes (multi-dimensional data storage and retrieval) using a propriety multi-dimensional database system. I am taking the lead on the technical side and I am most comfortable with C++ so decided to build our OLAP engine with it. I did originally build a prototyp
Most of us make resolutions for the new year and hope everything will change magically in this year but as the days pass on so does the enthusiasm and the new resolutions are left behind to solve the old issues first from the previous year. The same story is repeated for most of us year on year. The problem is that we try to set unrealistic aims and goals, even though it's OK to set your aim/ goal high but also must realize that we can only reach there wit
Researchers have found a way to -- literally -- multiply teeth. In mice, they were able to extract teeth germs -- groups of cells formed early in life that later develop into teeth, split them into two, and then implant the teeth into the mice's jaws, where they developed into two fully functional teeth.

Microsoft has grudgingly agreed to let current OneDrive users keep their 15GB of free cloud storage and 15GB of free Camera Roll “bonus” storage, rather than dropping you to 5GB as previously stated, but only if you’re aware of the offer and don’t mind a bit of spam. To take advantage of the offer, visit this Microsoft page. Microsoft representatives said the company does not have a supplementary explanatory blog post or statement to add at the present, b
This is a brief introduction to the environment of development and visual programming for the platform Arduino, Visuino is a property of Mitov software and I alone take part making tests and some libraries not yet concluded. The example is to realize an analogical lecture in my Arduino Uno of a sensor of temperature LM35 and this analogical information to open it in a display of lcd 16x2 classic with controller HD44780, the whole programming does in Visui...
Even though ATtiny chips are cheap but still it helps to know that still can salvage a bricked chip.
To get a HEX-code in your Attiny85 it is possible to use the Arduino as a programmer, but as you cannot load hexcode in your IDE, it involves using avrdude. First of all, we need to get the Attiny85 clocked to 8Mhz. Open up your Arduino software and upload the Arduino ISP sketch to your board. Disconnect the board from your computer and attach the Attiny as shown here. Also make sure you download and install the Attiny core files as described in that
