The Raspberry Pi single board computer will throttle under heavy load to prevent the CPU core from overheating. Most boards when purchased will come without a heatsink or just with a small one. However there are custom designed, differently sized heatsinks some even with a tiny fan. The tiny heatsinks merely delay full thermal throttling, while medium sized ones reduce the amount of throttling. I was wondering if it’s possible to get full compute power out of my Raspberry Pi 3B only using passive cooling or is it doomed to throttle at full utilization unless I get active cooling.
Unfortunately Firefox for Android does not offer export, or as the matter of fact import, functionality of bookmarks stored on the device. The only official way to get bookmarks from the Android version of Firefox is to use the sync service. Since I was decommissioning my old phone from everyday use, I was only interested on saving them onto my computer once, without registering for a sync account.
Nature is the best painter of sceneries and I’ve been lucky enough to be able see some truly astonishing places. In these photos I’d like to share some of the beauties of our planet. See the landscape gallery.
In recent KMyMoney releases the list of choices for
online stock quotes has significantly decreased, mainly due to financial web
services terminating public access to data. Some of the available sources are
missing certain U.S. based ETF quotes, or occasionally the API will mismatch
certain symbols (when specified without
:EXCHANGE) for a similarly named one
on the European market, and thus returning the wrong price. To remediate this
one can add the open
IEXTrading API as a source for
quoting the U.S. stock market.
I’m happy to announce the first public release of OATH-URI, which is a C/C++ library, and command line tool to generate OATH OTP key sharing URIs. These URIs are usually encoded into QR codes for delivery to smartphone based two-factor authenticator applications. Now you can set up your TOTP/HOTP one-time password apps without leaving the shell! Get the source and find out more on the project page!
