Need Honest Assessment of Protect

2020.09.29 23:48 secretaliasname Need Honest Assessment of Protect

I'd like some feedback on Protect for home use. I am setting up infrastructure at my new house and eying going all in on Ubiquiti including Protect. The total cost of ownership of a 3 camera system over a 5 year period with either a CK2+ or UDMP is not that far from Ring gear + a netgear router when the Ring subscriptions are factored in. I see a lot of threads from folks having issues am wondering if this is just selection bias where only the problem havers are complaining or if the system really isn't worked out. I want to hear your positive stories as well as issues
My requirements are: * 3 cameras for now * Push notifications and the app are important. This is something my wife cares a lot about. If the app is buggy, hard to use, or unreliable that is a dealbreaker * want decent night performance * cameras must have wired power and ideally wired data. * I have a 200Mbps internet connection.
I am attracted to the Unifi system because I already have a few unifi APs and I'd like wired cameras. I previous had battery powered Arlos and managing batteries or dealing with the cheesy USB power cables sucked. I want a solution that uses either POE, wired 120v or wired 24v in that order if preference. The idea of owning my data and not being cloud bound is attractive as well. In the long run subscription fees add up.

2020.09.28 19:26 ingfire Playing Offline

So this seems like it should be a given, but why can I not play this game without having an active internet connection?? Its a single player idle game, but I'm about to deploy and luckily tested a bunch of my games out in Airplane mode since I won't have any data or Wi-Fi for 7 months, and the game won't load past "Summoning Elder Gods". What makes this game so special that it can't even start without internet? Obviously, that's a pretty huge dealbreaker for me, and anyone else without a consistent and stable internet connection.

2020.09.21 22:39 verymanychefs Math grad looking for an efficient pathway to more advanced engineering after being away from math for a while

Hi all, had a question for the engineerfolk/academiafolk here.
I graduated as a double major in mathematics and journalism, but decided to go down the writing route for a career instead of something more engineering-focused. I ended up writing for about 8 years before finally going back to a more data-focused role (in marketing).
I enjoy my work a lot and don't have any immediate plans of moving from it, but I also know I want to graduate to another technical level beyond what's currently kind of data science-lite at some point. I would love to get into something that's more related to aeronautics (an absolute dream job would be working on anything in engineering that's space-related).
I don't know if the route is publicly-available resources, or if it requires going back for a masters. I'd really want to dig into something closer to what I studied as an undergraduate (applied/engineering) but I have no idea on the pathway to get there if it goes through grad school, for a couple reasons:
None of these are absolute dealbreakers, (minus the letter of rec part) and I'm ready/willing to grind out any of it where needed.
I'm at the beginning of the exploration and I'm sure there are plenty of people here that have gone through the same process. So I was wondering if anyone has any advice or go-to resources here before I start smashing Google to go down a rabbit holes with terrible/wrong advice and FrEe MoNeY cLiCk HeRe.
Thanks, and hope everyone's staying safe!

2020.09.20 13:49 Tomushhh GoPro PLUS Edit from the cloud?

I can't seem to find a clear answer online, so I'm asking here! :)
I currently have a Hero 4, and am looking at upgrading to the Hero 9 and getting the PLUS subscription. Editing the footage from the GoPro App with Hero 4 footage, constantly crashes as my phone (Pixel 3 XL) doesn't seem to like working with the 4K footage.
If i get the Hero 9, I want to know if I can use the feature to upload all the footage to the cloud, and then edit the footage from the app, with the files being on the cloud. So that, I don't have to download them to my device using mobile data/wifi and using the storage on my phone which is limited etc.. (& that constantly crashes!) and then once the movie has been made, I can then download it from the cloud? I ask this as I travel a lot and would be nice to edit them via the cloud whilst on the go and rinsing my mobile data allowance.
It's a bit of a dealbreak at the moment. i can afford the 9 and am wanting to upgrade but with the issues of not being able to edit the footage due to crashing unless recording in low res (sad face). I wish they had a desktop version of the app that makes the Quik videos then I could do that on my laptop, just annoying that GoPro discontinued it and went to mobile editing, which most phones can't handle the processing power needed.
I hope I am making sense.

2020.09.18 20:30 bretvh Alternative to Harvest App, with PayPal invoice payment and data import from Harvest

Hi All-
I just got word from Harvest that they are discontinuing their PayPal invoice payment integration in November. I have used Harvest for years and generally love it, but this is pretty much a dealbreaker for me. Their only alternative solution seems to be Stripe, but that does not have an instant transfer to my Bank Account option, and generally is a 5-day wait for an ACH transfer.
I have a long-term contract client who pays me weekly and I have budgeted for those weekly deposits on the basis of being able to do an instant transfer from my PayPal account.
I am wondering what other time tracking/invoicing apps people use that still support PayPal invoice payments, specifically ones that can import most data from Harvest exports, as I have years of data in Harvest I'd want to bring over.
The landscape of time tracking apps is pretty full, so I'm just hoping to get some suggestions to narrow the playing field a bit and save some time.
Edit: I do realize I can manually invoice via PayPal and manually mark invoices as paid, and may end up just doing that. But I do really appreciate the time saved by having that all automated.
Thanks in advance.
-Bret

2020.09.09 04:46 xei21346 Should I apologize for getting mad at my uncle about politics after he gave me a gift for my b-day?

My uncle (M50s) and I (F16) have always gotten along. He’s always been a generous person to me and my family, so he came over to give me a gift and wish me a happy birthday a while ago. While we were talking about the pandemic, the conversation drifted to American politics. Both my parents and my uncle are immigrants, and they have said and shown through their actions that they care more about politics there than here. That’s fine by me. They don’t know much about American history, which is expected given they grew up in a totally different country.
He started talking about how Black Lives Matter doesn’t care about black-on-black crime in Chicago, George Floyd is a criminal not a martyr (he thought that BLM was building a statue of him in a nearby Democrat city), communists are spreading this propaganda to children like me and his daughter through TikTok (but he also thinks systemic racism exists & Floyd died wrongfully). My dad started arguing with him; by the end he was mockingly agreeing with him and laughing.
Up until then, I tried to offer rebuttals to him: public execution is not how criminals are dealt with, BLM is a political organization that aims to end police brutality not all murders involving black people, and TikTok is a national security threat because it steals data not because it disseminates ideas (all social media does this).
I’m fine with people expressing their beliefs on policy. But politics that deals with morals is a dealbreaker for me. This was the breaking point for me: I told him that slavery is still legal in this country under the 13th amendment as punishment for a crime and asked him how he felt about that. He did not know this before I told him about it. Right in front of me, he decided to say that slavery is okay if used as a punishment. When I said that Abraham Lincoln only freed slaves out of a desire to keep the Union together, he called it propaganda.
My dad and I share similar beliefs on human rights issues like these. He is the definition of a pacifist, but both of my parents told me to go apologize because we have respect him even if we disagree on politics. He said that they (my parents) don’t agree with my aunts and uncles on politics back home, but they stay in contact anyway; said my uncle was sad about what I said to him before he left (I gave him his gift back and told him to get out) and that he was just joking; said since my uncle already apologized, I should. I asked him what is the line supposed to be? Should I wait until he is pro-genocide? Now he won’t talk to me and my mom is taking his side.
I’m starting to think they’re right and I should apologize so things go back to normal. I feel horrible about what happened &how I responded. Please understand our culture is not flexible about this and my parents feel embarrassed because this is a huge taboo. I just don’t know how I can apologize for being anti-slavery and I don’t believe he was joking. What should I do?
Edit: thank you guys for your input. I’m going to apologize in the morning but I would like to say one thing. I was a little harsh with the way I treated my uncle. I should have been more respectful and deescalated the argument. I thought it was okay to have non-negotiable beliefs if they don’t hurt anyone. By trying to protect my beliefs, I clearly have hurt my uncle. I appreciate your input and I will revise my behavior ASAP, but I hope some of you can learn from my mistake. It is fine to stand up for what you believe in, but consideration and respect are not optional, not during a nonviolent discussion.

2020.09.02 03:49 AfterburnerX Looking for a decent PC for general use and some select gaming

What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using.
What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes?
When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.
What, exactly, do you need included in the budget? (ToweOS/monitokeyboard/mouse/etc)
Which country (and state/province) will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in US, do you have access to a Microcenter location?
If reusing any parts (including monitor(s)/keyboard/mouse/etc), what parts will you be reusing? Brands and models are appreciated.
Will you be overclocking? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line? CPU and/or GPU?
Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc)
Do you have any specific case preferences (Size like ITX/microATX/mid-towefull-tower, styles, colors, window or not, LED lighting, etc), or a particular color theme preference for the components?
Do you need a copy of Windows included in the budget? If you do need one included, do you have a preference?
Extra info or particulars:
 
Thanks so much for the help!

2020.08.30 16:48 Omgwtfbbqlul Replacement for my ASUS K501U for under $1000

LAPTOP QUESTIONNAIRE
Total budget (in local currency) and country of purchase. Please do not use USD unless purchasing in the US:
Under 11000 SEK in Sweden (Around $1000)
Are you open to refurbs/used?
No
How would you prioritize form factor (ultrabook, 2-in-1, etc.), build quality, performance, and battery life?
Build quality is important, no need for 2 in 1. Performance also important and battery life matters.
How important is weight and thinness to you?
I will be carrying it quite alot so not extremely heavy, however this will probably not be a dealbreaker.
Do you have a preferred screen size? If indifferent, put N/A.
Preferably around 15", but up for suggestions
Are you doing any CAD/video editing/photo editing/gaming? List which programs/games you desire to run.
Some data processing, SPSS, R. Also some gaming; Divinity 2, Dota 2, Hopefully Vampire the Masquerade 2, if it ever comes out.
If you're gaming, do you have certain games you want to play? At what settings and FPS do you want?
A comfortable experience in EU4, Divinity 2, TF2. When looking at fps test for different games that look interesting a dedicated GPU seems necessary.
Any specific requirements such as good keyboard, reliable build quality, touch-screen, finger-print reader, optical drive or good input devices (keyboard/touchpad)?
Will be used professionally as well as at home, so I can't have it looking like a jet-plane. I would really prefer the look that my previous laptop had:
https://www.amazon.com/ASUS-K501UX-15-6-inch-Processor-Windows/dp/B0146DD02G

2020.08.26 16:16 JetMike42 I'm in over my head here. Would love some help.

[TL;DR I'm looking for a computer for uni classes/gaming and my target computer (Asus TUF Gaming FX505DT) is currently out of stock/inflated. Answers to any of my 6 questions would be greatly appreciated, as I'm not sure I'm making the right call.]
So I have been doing research to buy a new laptop for several weeks now, and had settled somewhat clearly on what I wanted. I mainly do my classwork on my computer, but add to that some programming for data analysis and some gaming (Civ VI, StarCraft, Minecraft, Cities Skylines), so for my 700$ budget, I eventually decided on the Asus TUF Gaming FX505DT as my main option (AMD Ryzen 5 processor, NVIDIA GTX 1650, 8 GB RAM, 256 SSD). I would have it as my main home and work computer and believe it can handle most daily work succesfully as well as provide decent gaming quality.
Some of the features that convinced me over similar-priced products were the general good value for money of the machine, the display (120Hz ISP), the quality of the keyboard and the advertised durability of the product. Problem is, the laptop is currently not stocked or being overpriced (~750$ on what should be a 650$ machine on those specs, same increase for the higher spec versions) and I'm not sure if I should consider some alternatives.
Firstly, I was also considering the Acer Nitro 5 and the MSI GF63, but the reason they were just barely beat for their equivalent priced specs is that their displays are inferior, the Nitro 5's design I find slightly unnatractive and the MSI's keyboard is not backlit.
Secondly, I was also considering some good non-gaming-optimized alternatives at that price-range, such as the Asus ZenBook 14, the Lenovo IdeaPad 5 and the Acer Swift 3, but the lack of discrete graphics cards of the last two, and the somewhat inferior MX350 of the ZenBook made me go for the gaming optimized ones, though I might be overestimating my GPU needs, seeing as I usually play less demanding games (though that could change at some point).
Lastly, I could wait and save up money for the Lenovo Legion 5 or HP Omen 15, or upgrade the specs of the TUF or Nitro to 16+ GB RAM and better storage, but my thinking was that at the 700$ range my needs would be sufficiently covered.
None of my reasons for choosing Asus over the rest are dealbreakers, and I'm open to suggestions.
I've put a lot of research into it, but I'm still relatively new to all this and would greatly appreciate the input of more knowledgeable people, if you could answer any (or all) of the following questions:

  1. Is there any reason for going for the Nitro 5 or GF63 despite the reasons I listed that made me opt for the Asus? I know the MSI's Intel i5 is often a deciding factor for the higher clock speed and marginally better performance, but I believe the Ryzen 5 would serve me just fine. Maybe I'm wrong.
  2. Should I be aiming for the non-gaming laptops instead? The Zenbook 14, IdeaPad 5 and Swift 3 all have significantly better battery lives, better designs and most crucially, better specs and features (except for GPUs, of course). Maybe I'm overestimating the use I will get out of a GTX graphics card, 120 Hz monitor, beefy thermals and RGB keyboard, maybe I'm not a hardcore enough gamer to warrant investing so much into the gaming aspect for the games I tend to play.
  3. Is there anything I could get from the Legion 5 and Omen 15 that would warrant waiting? Better performance, obviously, but I'm not too fussy about insane framerates or ultra-settings gaming. It's unlikely that I'll go for them unless I find some crazy sale.
  4. Is it better to get 16 GB RAM and 512 GB SSD right off the bat? I was planning on getting the 8 GB/256 GB specs and later purchasing extra memory and storage. I also think it's cheaper to manually upgrade, but maybe I'm wrong. 8 GB should be enough for me, right?
  5. Should I just wait for the FX505DT to come back down in price (or buy it as is)? It's not the perfect computer, but I did eventually grow to like what it offers and was frustrated to find that it's mostly out of stock/overpriced. Maybe it's still worth it? I'm in no hurry, I still have an old VivoBook that while extremely slow, gets the job done just fine, for now.
  6. For these six computers I'm considering, how long can I expect them to last? This is the most important one to me. This will be my primary computer and I plan on keeping it for a long time. As long as possible, actually. Upgrades and maintenance aside, how well can I expect to hold up some years from now?. I understand and accept that I won't be triple-A gaming or anything in 3-5 years's time, but I also don't want to have a planned-obsolescence-computer that I will need to change by then.
Thanks in advance for any help you can give and super sorry for the long post. Buying a new laptop is stressful (though exciting) and I tend to overthink.

2020.08.23 08:50 SprintingMarathons Best Dock for My Situation?

Hey all,
Sorry if this is a dumb question but I'm having a hard time finding a dock that meets my requirements. I have an Acer Swift laptop with a USB C port that I use to connect to a HP EliteDisplay S14 USB C Portable monitor. The ideal dock for me would allow me to charge the laptop, extend my screen to the portable monitor, connect a USB 2.0 keyboard, and connect one other USB 2.0 device to my laptop (this last criterion is not a dealbreaker) by just plugging in the dock to my laptop's usb C port. Is there a dock under $100 that can accomplish this for me? Bonus points if there's something under $50 that can get this done because I'm a broke medical student.
Thank you all in advance! Most of the docks that I've found in my research are prohibitively expensive or it is unclear if the USB C port on the dock will successfully connect to my portable monitor- if the port passes data and not just charge is that all I need to see to know that my display will successfully be extended to the monitor thru the dock?

2020.08.22 20:34 vitamincee Which CRM would be best for an independent tattoo artist?

Hello,
My partner is a tattoo artist and is just starting to get very busy with bookings. They're doing bookings and scheduling manually right now, and it's taking up a whole lot of time. I'd love to help them automate as much as possible to clear up some more time for drawing and taking time off. I'm a web developer and have no CRM experience other than linking forms to them for clients.
I've looked into HubSpot (does the trick, but the $50/mo version is too limited and the next tier up is needed, and the price is way out of budget). Jetpack CRM looks good too, but isn't robust enough yet.
I'm open to anything really, that's not super expensive (say less than $100/mo?). They're just starting off and still recovering after 4 months of lockdown and inability to collect unemployment.
Here's the ideal workflow:
  1. website form captures the tattoo request and sends it over to the CRM. form is already built. ideally CRM captures all the data in the form and creates a new 'customer' with the form data.
  2. my partner gets a notice and decides if they'd like to do the tattoo or not. if not, client gets automatic "thanks for your interest" email. if yes, the client gets a "welcome" email with a link to the deposit payment form (already created with stripe).
  3. once paid, the client gets a booking calendar to self-book (ideally they get slots the size of the predicted tattoo length, ie: 4 hours). this step is a nice-to-have but not a dealbreaker if unavailable - if a CRM doesn't do calendaring we can do this manually.
  4. once the customer has completed booking, we move to the draft/design phase. my partner will send a draft of the design over to the client to approve and go back and forth with until final design is agreed upon. i'm guessing some sort of email integration would take care of this phase.
  5. the customer gets an automatic reminder email the day before the appt reminding them what to bring and covid protocol.
  6. a couple days after the appt the customer gets another automatic email with aftercare reminder.
Things that would be nice:
Am I describing something that exists? I'm open to any suggestions!
Thank you for reading :)

2020.08.22 20:23 placeperson Thoughts on three newborn tracking apps: Huckleberry, Glow, Baby Tracker

As our baby closed in on 4 weeks old, we decided to explore some of the newborn tracking apps so that we could better visualize the baby's rhythms and patterns in advance of trying to structure his sleep more. We spent this week bouncing between a few different apps, and spending time transferring data between them in an earnest attempt to use each one, and I thought it might be helpful to share some thoughts here for folks trying to think through what will work best for them.
Ultimately, none of the apps we tried were perfect for our needs; it became a question of which drawbacks were easiest for us to accept. Note that we are both on Android; but I don't think the feature sets in these apps is very different between iOS/Android (let me know if I'm wrong).
Huckleberry
Pros
Cons
Glow
Pros
Cons
NIGHP Baby Tracker
Pros
Cons
Note - I also downloaded and installed the Amila Baby Tracker; but quickly uninstalled it when I realized it didn't support multiple users for one baby. I don't really get how in 2020 you can make an app that assumes a baby only has one real caregiver but hey ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
As you can see above, all of these apps have very similar functions and should cover the basics well for any family, but they also have fairly unique strengths and weaknesses that may work better for some folks than others.
In the end, for us, we settled on using the NIGHP Baby Tracker. The limitations of Huckleberry in allowing users to access their own data, and the insane requirement that both parents pay for a premium subscription in Glow were both too much to swallow, especially for such expensive apps. I won't say money was no object, as it's nice to pay $0 or $5 rather than $80 or more, but we would have paid for one of the two more expensive apps if we thought it really provided a superior service and didn't come with frustrating drawbacks.
Hope this is helpful for others!
Edit It's helpful to see all the positive feedback re: Huckleberry's sleep predictions, a feature we hadn't really explored yet since our baby is still a little young. Y'all are giving me second thoughts about diving back into Huckleberry for sleep tracking at least. Thanks all!

Dreem 2 is MUCH more exact device in tracking sleep vs sleep laboratory. About 90% for Dreem 2 and 50% for oura. This seems to be a dealbreaker for the oura, because its supposed to excel in this area. A big chunk of this inexact data is because oura tracks sleep also by movement. So everytime you move, Oura will show you awake for at least 5 minutes in the app and i dont get it, why exactly they did this. Is this to show that you were moving while sleep and probably have a sleeping disorder? In the end its not always right, that you are fully awake when you move in bed.
Oura is relatively right compared to other much more exact sources, when it comes to tracking activity. But to count kcal its nonsense. Oura seems to concentrate about tracking overall activity vs to measure exactly the right amount of of a specific activity. You cant compare activity measures of Oura between different users like step counters for example.So activity tracking measures are bound to the individual user to track differences between days/weeks.
All in all Oura doesnt seem to be an exact device, but its usable in a way if you dont compare your own sleeping scores to others, which would be totally possible with a dreem2 for example.
I still cant decide. I totally like the form factor of the Oura :D. But i wonder if it will serve me in sleep tracking anywhere as good as the Dreem 2.

2020.08.10 19:36 arxero Looking for a new VPN provider after ditching PIA - recommendations?

I'm looking for a new VPN provider after ditching PIA recently. I was just not comfortable with their acquisition by Kape, and I'd prefer a VPN not hosted in a 14 eyes country. Tbh I am not even using it for torrenting but for work, I need a secure connection when handling sensitive data. I'm only asking here because asking for recommendations on /VPN is, strangely, not allowed =/
I need a VPN that:
- Is secure
- Is proven to not keep logs
- Is highly rated / reviewed but customers.
- Not within the jurisdiction of the 14 eyes - because why not?
- Preferably cross-platform with an app (macOS, Windows, and iOS) - But not a dealbreaker, I know I can set up this stuff manually
I've been looking at both Mullvad and ExpressVPN, though I'm not positive where either of those two are hosted.
Any recomendations please? And thank you!!

2020.08.10 08:16 Mephanic Yet another alternatives vs YTM thread

I just got the email yesterday, notifying me about the end of GPM, and while I am willing to give YTM a try. I have no beef with that platform, just never used it yet and fear it might be lacking some features that I need, so I want to also prepared to switch to a different service in case it becomes necessary.
Must have features:
Nice to have features:

2020.08.06 05:59 evancil 39 [F4R] Nerd seeks nerd, data dump

EDIT I am talking to someone and in order to give him the attention he deserves, I'm pulling me off the market here. To each and everyone who sent a message or left a comment, from the bottom of my heart, thank you so much. It has given me a lot of hope that there is someone out there for me, and I want to assure you that there is someone out there for you too. I hope you find EXACTLY what you need. EDIT
Hi! I have been off the market for a long time so I’ll try to lay this out in a logical way. I know a lot of these personals try to be funny, and I’m frickin’ hilarious, but I’m just going to try to get all the data out there first and let the funny come out organically in chat if chatting makes sense to even start.
About me: Just the facts: I just turned 39. I am caucasian with curly brown hair and blue eyes. I am of healthy BMI, physically active and in good health. My husband of 20 years and I separated about 10 months ago. The divorce is a done deal. I have 2 daughters, ages 2 and 4, normal kids no issues. My ex husband does not want to be involved in their lives, at all, so they are exclusively mine. I am financially self-sufficient. I live in north Florida and I am looking to relocate if needed, I do really like my job though so I’m okay staying here too. Long story short, I am a functional adult who mostly has my act together.
This time, with feeling: I have been to extensive therapy over my divorce. I’m ready for and looking for a real relationship, you will not be a rebound, but I’ve never been with anyone but my ex-husband so I don’t have the faintest idea what I’m doing. I used to be fat, so I will always track my food and exercise a little compulsively. As far as I know that’s it for baggage. As for hobbies and interests, I am, to put it lightly, a huge nerd. I like video games, anime, I read VORACIOUSLY, I love tabletop RPGs of all flavors (including, but not limited to, D&D), I draw, I paint miniatures, I write, card games, boards games, the list goes on and on and on about nerd stuff. On a less nerdy note, i'm learning about photography, I'm an excellent cook, and I really love canoeing/ hiking/ backpacking. I am really looking forward to getting my girls into the woods when they get all the way out of diapers, but I’m serious into LNT and also serious about not packing out a toddler’s shit tickets. I daydream about through-hiking the AT, but I’m not too snooty to throw down a tent at a car camping site either!
About you: This section was a lot harder and I have to equivocate a lot, because I’m actually quite open minded on many topics. I’d probably like someone between 30-45ish, but older can be okay as long as you still have the energy for toddlers & teenagers (in 10 years) & sex, and younger can be okay if you have the emotional and intellectual maturity to keep up. I need someone who can unashamedly be a huge dork along with me, but you don’t have to be a dork about the exact same things. I need someone who can love my little girls like their own, but I love children and welcome theirs too. I don’t care about your height, but I’m 5’10” and men shorter than that have made it weird before, it’s up to you. I don’t care about your weight, but I’d like someone who shares my interest in an active lifestyle, if you can’t walk 2-3 miles comfortably then you won’t be happy with me, but I can appreciate a good evening on the couch, too. Basically, I expect you to be a fully formed, independent adult with wants and needs and interests and baggage of your own and to have at least a vague idea of what those are.
I am actively interested in monogamous relationships with men or women. I am NOT interested in polyamory or open relationships, this is a clear dealbreaker for me. I have been in a long term hetero relationship but I’ve been bi since forever.
I’m pretty shy so it’s hard to talk directly, publicly, and specifically about what I bring to the table, but I’ve got energy and enthusiasm, kindness and intellect, humor and understanding. I can still take chances and find wonder and joy in the world, and I know I’m not the only one.
Let’s go on an adventure.

2020.08.01 05:04 sixstringsg LoRA vs Digi XTEND module

Wasn't sure if this fell more in rfelectronics or not, but nobody answered over there so I'm cross-posting here.
I am working on a project that will have ~12 sensors mounted on an offroad race truck being read about twice per second each. I am looking to wirelessly transmit those sensor values to another vehicle from the longest range feasible given the below:
  1. No operator license required, so no data over any amateur radio frequencies.
  2. $100-$150 max module cost on the sender and receiver end.
  3. Low operation cost, everything I've seen satellite based is very expensive per kB.
  4. Mesh would be nice, but not a dealbreaker. There will be only one transmitting node, but multiple receiving nodes in different physical locations.
  5. Power consumption isn't too much of a concern within reason.
  6. A microcontroller programmed using the Arduino ecosystem will be used to collect the data, so a UART interface of some sort and a library for it would be ideal.
  7. I do not have the ability to accurately aim an antenna each time, general direction is the best we'll get.
  8. Real-world range of ~10miles is fantastic
  9. Not a lot of urban RF interference, but will be near a lot of HV power lines and a lot of people using 2m radios.
Here is the Digi module I'm looking at, "40 miles max range" at 1W over 900Mhz.
While this LoRa module claims "20Km+ LOS", which while much less than the Digi module, would still have range I'm looking for much cheaper component and power cost.
tl;dr: anyone with real-world experience with LoRa modules that can give me some range experience?

2020.07.22 04:01 VegetableEscape0 True Blue Tinder: new idea for UofT-tailored matchmaking project

Just did the Aphrodite Project - didn't get matched sadly - but I have too much time on my hands and came up with this idea for a UofT dating app. I've outlined the whole thing in this super long post below. Let me know what you think of everything. I have no money or CS experience, but if any CS students want to collaborate make this into a reality, feel free to contact me :) Maybe we could get the Aphrodite creators on board LOL. And please help me think of a better name than True Blue Tinder.
--
Mission statement: whereas traditional dating apps suck because they focus solely on photos and short, cliché profiles, thereby giving the most attractive people a massive advantage and promoting superficial decisions based on immediate physical attraction, and whereas the UofT Aphrodite Project is an interesting project but entails a low probability of success due to assigning only one single match to each participant, this project True Blue Tinder attempts to combine the strengths of both platforms to provide a meaningful dating and friendship service tailored to UofT and GTA students.
Participants indicate whether they are open to a romantic relationship or merely a platonic one.
Participants indicate whether they are open to a relationship or friendship with people from a different school or merely their own (or they can filter specific schools) (limited to schools in the GTA because for a relationship to reasonably work your partner has to be close enough for you to see in person). True Blue Tinder ideally will operate at all GTA universities and colleges, including:
Participants enter the same profile data about themselves as they do in the Aphrodite Project
*not asked in the Aphrodite Project (see I’m improving on the project :))
Participants enter the same dealbreaker data as in the Aphrodite Project (not permitted for the platonic pool)
Additional profile information: participants enter this information to appear on their profile but cannot set these as dealbreakers
Additional questions: similar to the questions from the rest of the Aphrodite project; these questions are used to filter the profiles participants see; participants will be shown profiles that tend to be more compatible with them
Participants can upload a photo of themselves, but for equity reasons it must be their TCard (or equivalent student card) photo. Because everyone’s TCard photo is mediocre at best. Once students complete the sign up process, they will see all the profiles that are generally compatible with their personalities and dealbreakers. They can choose to swipe right or left on any of the profiles, and when there is a match, they can start messaging on the app. OR once they see all the compatible profiles they can start sliding into whoever’s dms that they wish. To make it fair, everyone roughly the same number of profiles to browse from. And it’s mutual - if someone appears in your feed, you also appear in their feed (makes sense obviously based on dealbreaker criteria).
Like the Aphrodite project, participants can be given a few weeks opportunity to sign up, and once that time period is over, everyone will be able to see the profiles. Perhaps they can then have a limited period (eg. a week) to make connections (because we--whoever *we* are--don’t have the resources to run this thing forever).
