I just set up my dualshock 3 with JoyToKey to emulate a mouse so I can control my PC from my comfy couch, but I need JTK to be disabled when any game launches, since games have their own controller code usually. If I leave it on the game registers double key/button presses or opens the start menu or any kind of unwanted shit.
I can associate a profile with an individual application, but I don't feel like adding every single game to the list (too much work).
TL;DR is there a way to disable JoyToKey when launching any game?

How do I learn about sever racks? Like what do you get with a chassis what can I gut and replace from an old chassis?

What is different then a pc? I know the memory motherboards and memory can all be server grade. I know they have certain utilities like extra diagnostics, ecc memory, and shit like IPMI so you can manage it from other computers. I also know about the 3 types of hard drives hdd, ssd, and sas. I however do not know what kind of parts I need to fuck with that might go between the drives and the motherboard.

How does the motherboard work in the chassis. It seems like it might just snug up against the back like a computer. What about smaller motherboard like micro/mini itx do they work in there?

>> No.44551654

booleans are true or false, this can be represented by 0 or 1.

you could say if (boolean) do stuff

if boolean is 1 or true it will happen, if its 0 or false it wont happen

A bool in any language is simply true or false. Just like there's Integers and Strings, there's Bools. It's another Datatype in all programming. Stirngs are letters, Ints are Numbers, Bools are True/False. When I first learned programming I was waaaayyy over thinking it. Bools are also said to be 0 or 1, 0 being false and 1 being true. I think in JS everything but 0 is true.

Boolean is pretty much all programming languages is a 1 or a 0. Its a special type of number system that just has two number. It also replaces the 1 or 0 visually in your code with true false 1 being true.

You come something like if x > 0 or something else then use if true or if false.

In some languages since they are actually 0 or 1 hidden behind a visual true or false you can put it in a variable and ask like if x >0 x being your boolean shoved in a variable.

I bought a laptop from Amazon less than a month ago. It had a minor imperfection. One part of the skin was very lightly out of place. After carrying during three flights (lots of connections) I open again the briefcase and the hinge in that side seems to had become eccentric, quite noticeable.

Well, you see, a primary key is a unique identifier of a resource. For instance, if you make a table of great French people (there are some), you'll get a primary key for Sadi Carnot (the president) and another primary key for Sadi Carnot (the physicist). Let's say the president as ID 1, and the physicist has ID 2.

Now you want to refer to these data in another table, but by using these keys. The keys in the other table will be called foreign keys. Foreign keys only have a meaning if you have the parent table where they are declared as primary keys.
For instance, if you want to make a table for the job of great French people, you'll say ID 1 was a president, ID 2 was a physicist, ID 2 was also an engineer (foreign keys may be duplicated, not primary key), and so on.

But if your table has a foreign key that isn't referenced (it doesn't correspond to any primary key in the parent table), you don't have referential integrity. Referential integrity is, by definition, the property "foreign keys are always referenced in the parent table".

You can associate a profile with an executable so JTK automatically switches to that profile when the executable gets focus.

I bought one of pic related as well as a wingman controller from Value Village, and I can't get Windows 7 to recognize it. From what I have read you need to be on Windows XP or earlier for it to work. Also, they both came with adaptors, and the Wingman works on both of them, but the Sidewinder isn't even recognized. Is there any way to pull the drivers directly from XP?

cable or satellite TV is vsync'd, right? The program received specifies a standard timing/framerate/resolution that the TV set responds to. Most of the time that is 24.9XX frames per second, and correspondingly 24.9XX Hz refresh rate.
Why can't I vsync my PC monitor to video material? Most digital video material is 24fps as well, but monitors are running at 60Hz regardless, showing frames for multiple refresh cycles. Without vsync, you also get tearing in video material.
I guess most PC monitors are not able to operate at 24/25Hz, but at least with 60fps video material, is there an option to vsync to video frames?

Of course there is a way to vsync stuff from your computer. But it has nothing to do with the monitor. The monitor is "vsyncd". The broken link is the media player.
Download KCP, and go through the settings to find Exclusive mode. This enables madvr vsync. It completely removes tearing.
Hurrdurr smoothmotion 9000 (TM) is optional too. You can get madvr to interpolate the content, which makes it "smoother".

How do I recovered files? I've been throwing the kitchen sink at a friend's hard drive which went FUBAR.

The only program which has managed to show me anything useful so far is GetDataBack. Both the FAT and NTFS version show me the same thing regardless of how badly I say the drive was "damaged" or when I say I just want to recover deleted files. They go through the whole drive listing file starts as they find them, then at the end I get a popup saying "Couldn't find an NTFS filesystem on this drive, try the FAT version" (or vice versa).

I'm not entirely sure what the filesystem was, and my friend doesn't know either but thinks it was NTFS, but that's not even the point, I really don't give a shit about the filesystem, I just want the files.

Now, since the software can find file starts, that should mean it can just dump the files to an external source, I don't care if it knows their name or filetype, I can find the filetype based on the size. Can someone tell me how to make GetDataBack do that, or recommend a software that will?

TestDisk didn't find anything at all, before you suggest it.

thanks, i didn't know players had the option to vsync to video material. any chance the mpchc offers the same?
also, how would it vsync to a 24fps source? interlacing or again interpolating?
interpolating video material sounds nice as well, so you get exactly 1 unique frame per refresh. any idea how the software does that? i guess transitionary frames gradually going from pixel state of frame A to that of frame B? like adding motion blur gaps inbetween source frames.

the problem with unvsyncd playback is stutter in video material because some frames are displayed longer than others and tearing because multiple frames make it into single refresh cycles.

I'm asking you to take a screenshot that proves to me that you are really using the filters installed by cccp. If you didn't start with a totally fresh installation of windows, it is possible that a game or something you have installed another codec that is being used instead of the LAV filters included in cccp. The system tray (where you normally see WiFi, volume, windows update, etc) will show the icons of the lav filters while you are playing a video, if installed correctly and of that behavior is not disabled. More diagnostically, there is a sub menu from one of the main drop down menus on MPC (or the right click menu when you right click on a playing video) called filters that will also show the exact names of the loaded filters.

If this is happening for exactly one video file and no others (including other modern anime fansubs), then it is likely a problem with that specific file. Make sure that your file isn't corrupt (by checking the CRC or just loading it in a torrent which will has the file for you--or just redownloading it again!) and that the file you DLd hasn't been replaced with a v2 or something. Check the comment section of the site you downloaded it from to see if other users are reporting file corruption.

Not really.
There are massive differences in build quality, and in the metal used in the core of the cable.
I know there are lots of cheap UTP cables on the market that have copper clad steel or copper clad aluminium (CCA/CCS) instead of real copper wires, and they have such high impedance that they can't even reach gigabit speeds (even though sold as cat5e).
There's probably shady shit going on with super cheap hdmi cables as well.
Also where the hell do you even find a 7.5m hdmi cable for a dollar? Cheapest I've seen is about €10.

I got a dumb question about mutilating electronics

I have this really good 2 inch standard-USB to mini-USB cable that I use to move things around on my PSP. After losing it again for the millionth time today I got the idea storing it in the UMD slot when I'm not using it, but it doesn't fit because the plastic surrounding both ends make it slightly too bulky to close the lid.

I thought about removing the plastic and wrapping it with tape so it would fit, but I have no idea what goes into the unseen end of a USB cable, how much it needs a hard plastic shield around it or how bad removing said plastic might damage it.

Is this just a stupid idea?

You don't need the plastic, but I don't recommend replacing it with tape. It will just get disgustingly sticky and ruin your umd slot.

When my computer starts, the fan is going, but when I check on it later (I don't know how long, it's probably not constant) it is off, what I have found is that if I push it, it goes again for a little bit, but will eventually turn off.
