Pl use Bluz5.30. Initially it was really difficult to bring up bluetooth using Bluez 5. It seems it was okay with Bluez 4.I have tried different versions of Bluez 5 on my LFS build. Even up to Bluez 5.28 it was not satisfactory. Now it is Bluz5.30, with this, LFS doc and lot of trail, I could manage. I feel Bluez is one of the most badly documented user unfriendly software. I also feel it is very buggy. It can hang machines forcing to hard boot the system. I have seen bluetooth forcing the Android phone also to reboot. So it is important to get the latest version of the software. But to make the bluetooth speaker work Pulseaudio was needed. It is better to get the latest version; here also LFS doc was fine. So the process of connecting speaker was using bluetoothctl is as follows;

>> power on >> scan on >> pairable on >> pair >> agent on >> default-agent

Now the actual sound. Here pactl and pacmd are useful. paplay -d can test the devices. using pacmd with command...

Bitfury Mines a Block Signalling User-Activated SegWit Soft Fork

Bitfury is reported is to have mined a block supporting the BIP 148 proposal, effectively signalling a user-activated softfork (UASF) for SegWit.

As the debate surrounding bitcoin’s block size continues, many are moving in various directions supporting the one they believe holds the answer to bitcoin’s future scaling. Recently, Bitcoin Unlimited (BU), had around 40 percent support despite reports saying that BU is controversial, splitting the community in two with those for and against it.

A few weeks ago, though, an alias named Shaolin Fry introduced the idea of SegWit UASF, which would try to activate SegWit before a 95 percent threshold of consensus was reached between miners. The BIP 148 proposal states that a compulsory activation of SegWit would initiate between October 1 and November 15, 2017.

According to Fry’s proposal, it states:

Historically, the P2SH soft fork (BIP16)...

I had a similar issue and I think I finally have a reliable fix. The key issue is the Windows directx engine gives controllerIDs to all pads plugged in and there isn't an easy way to manage them. RL only uses the pad with ControllerID = 0 for player 1.

here are my steps for fixing this. (sometimes step 5 and 6 is all you need, but when things get messed up I have to do this whole process)

1. Plug in all gamepads you have used on this PC

2. uninstall each one from device manager. unplug the controller after you uninstall it.

3. Uninstall the controller you want to use last and unplug it.

4. reboot.

5. plug in the controller you want to use (let windows install it or install driver if applicable)

6. in control panel, go to the "Set up USB game controllers" section

7. click "Advanced" select your controller, then "OK"

8. reboot. (for good measure)

9. Try RL again! hopefully it works now.

In the future any...

*** Introduction to the BitGo Secure Wallet ***

Typical Bitcoin wallets have a single private key, making your Bitcoin susceptible to theft and loss. Our multi-signature technology issues three keys for your wallet, two of which are required to send Bitcoin. Unlike most other Bitcoin companies, BitGo doesn’t have the ability to access your Bitcoin. We only hold one key, which isn’t sufficient to transact on your behalf.

You control a second key, and a third key is stored offline as a backup....

President Donald Trump met with Russian leader Vladimir Putin Friday on the sidelines of the Group of 20 (G20) Summit in Hamburg, Germany, but what exactly was said remains unclear.

One point of clarity is that the meeting was much longer than scheduled, running for over 2 hours instead of 30 minutes.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and his Russian counterpart, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, accompanied the two leaders for the meeting. The only other people present in the room were two translators—prompting criticism from some experts who say such an intimate meeting is not in the U.S.’s best interests.

According to Tillerson, Trump began the meeting “by raising the concerns of the American people” regarding alleged Russian interference in the U.S. elections. The two leaders, Tillerson told the press after the meeting, had a “robust and lengthy exchange on the subject,” and Trump “pressed President Putin on more than one occasion” on the issue, he added....

a) Read what young people say about citizenship projects they have been involved in (A-F) and refer each question (1-8) to the appropriate person. Which project(s):

1. E. had very little equipment for the job?
2. D. benefited the local economy?
3. B. was part of normal school lessons?
4. A. deals with a problem largely caused by local people?
5. C. requires being taught skills?
6. F. involved cooperation with businesses?
7. B. can involve helping injured people?
8. A. is seasonal?

Our school is in a small town on the coast and tourism is very important for our community. One of the problems we've been having though is all the litter that gets left on the beaches. It's not all left by tourists. Unfortunately, most gets dumped by people who live in the area and some is washed up by the sea. Anyway, we decided to do something about it, so once a week during the summer we organised ourselves into work...

About a month ago a developer submitted a pull request to one of my plugins. At first glance the proposed changes looked fine, meaning that the code was clean, formatted nicely, and made sense. After reviewing and thinking about it for a few minutes, however, I realized that I didn’t love the way the proposed change was laid out. The idea behind the change was good but the execution was not ready for prime time.

I responded to the developer and first thanked them for their suggestion and for taking the time to put together a pull request. Seriously, no matter how good or bad a suggestion is, the developer should always be thanked for their time. They took time out of their day to try and improve your plugin, thank them.

The changes proposed were, in my mind, unnecessary because there was already a straight forward method to do what the developer’s changes allowed one to do. It added an additional method to register error messages. In this particular case, I felt that...

accept, accept4 - accept a connection on a socket


#include /* See NOTES */ #include int accept(int sockfd, struct sockaddr *addr, socklen_t *addrlen); #define _GNU_SOURCE /* See feature_test_macros(7) */ #include int accept4(int sockfd, struct sockaddr *addr, socklen_t *addrlen, int flags);


The accept() system call is used with connection-based socket types (SOCK_STREAM, SOCK_SEQPACKET). It extracts the first connection request on the queue of pending connections for the listening socket, sockfd, creates a new connected socket, and returns a new file descriptor referring to that socket. The newly created socket is not in the listening state. The original socket sockfd is unaffected by this call. The argument sockfd is a socket that has been created...

This BIP proposes M-of-N-signatures required transactions as a new standard transaction type.

Enable secured wallets, escrow transactions, and other use cases where redeeming funds requires more than a single signature.

A couple of motivating use cases:

A wallet secured by a "wallet protection service" (WPS). 2-of-2 signatures required transactions will be used, with one signature coming from the (possibly compromised) computer with the wallet and the second signature coming from the WPS. When sending protected bitcoins, the user’s bitcoin client will contact the WPS with the proposed transaction and it can then contact the user for confirmation that they initiated the transaction and that the transaction details are correct. Details for how clients and WPS’s communicate are outside the scope of this BIP. Side note: customers should insist that their wallet protection service provide them with copies of the private key(s) used to secure their wallets that they...
