Biology DNA Some Facts

Image
Software Engineering might be science; but that's not what I do. I'm a hacker, not an engineer. — Jamie Sawinski. Hi guys, a quick fact about me is I’ve studied B.S. Biology before and taken the course of BIO 16N (DNA Structures). One of the most important thing that I’ve learned was DNA will always start at a specific codon which is AUG . The AUG is the start codon otherwise no protein will be synthesized, then there are only 3 types of stop codon which is UAG , UGA , UAA . This has been a short post as I only want to remember this minor detail.

Staring At The Sky

You may not be her first, her last, or her only. She loved before she may love again. But if she loves you now, what else matters? She's not perfect - you aren't either, and the two of you may never be perfect together but if she can make you laugh, cause you think twice, and admit to being human and making mistakes, hold onto her and give her the most you can. She may not be thinking about you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break - her heart. So don't hurt her, don't change her, don't analyze and don't expect more than she can give. Smile when she makes you happy, let her know when she makes you mad, and miss her when she's not there. — Bob Marley. Just caught myself smiled again for no reason A smile that could probably mean one thing; Thinking of you my beloved dearest Always on my mind running all day long I wouldn’t mind waking up in morning To check every messages I’ve go

Texting Girls What Did I Learn From It?

I was fascinated with the phone system and how it worked; I became a hacker to get better control over the phone company. — Kevin Mitnick. Hi guys, in this TIL (Today I Learned) article I’ll talk about what are the things I’ve learned from texting girls. This would mostly give you some profound knowledge on what I did try and some conclusions. Giving up too easily on your texts to a girl One mistake guys make when texting girls is giving up too easily. They’ll text a girl, and if they don’t hear anything back (or just get a brief reply) they’ll assume the girl isn’t interested and give up. But this is often a big mistake. After all, the reasons a girl won’t respond to a text sometimes have nothing to do with whether or not she’s interested. For instance, she may be busy, in a bad mood, or is simply unsure of how she wants to respond to your text. The point is you don’t always know what’s going on in a girl’s head, so there’s no point in assuming the worst.

If you give a hacker a new toy, the first thing he'll do is take it apart to figure out how it works. — Jamie Zawinski. Hi guys, this are my top three good DNS (Domain Name System) providers that are really fast, secure and reliable that can be use in Southeast Asia. Cloudflare Cloudflare Public DNS (IPv4) 1.1.1.1 1.0.0.1 Cloudflare Public DNS (IPv6) 2606:4700:4700::1111 2606:4700:4700::1001 So why Cloudflare 1 ? Choose Cloudflare if you want less than <1ms of domain name resolution. Seriously, they have the fastest name resolution on the internet. Google Google Public DNS (IPv4) 8.8.8.8 8.8.4.4 Google Public DNS (IPv6) 2001:4860:4860::8888 2001:4860:4860::8844 So why Google 2 ? You will use this if you need an old but still good reliable DNS server. Its been used as a primary name resolution on big companies as well as local workstation. Its much more better than your ISP (Internet Service Provider) provided DNS. Yandex Yandex DNS (IPv4

Windows Network Discovery Using Built-in Tools

Image
Success is neither magical nor mysterious. Success is the natural consequence of consistently applying basic fundamentals. — E. James Rohn. Hi guys, last week I’ve worked on a vanilla Windows 10 client computer without internet but is connected to a LAN with many computer. I’ve asked myself on how to get all alive computers in the network using only built in tools from Windows. Here are the things I’ve did in order to accomplish this feat. First thing I did was ping all broadcast IP using ping <broadcast ip> -t -i 4 . This will ping the broadcast IP, this action will spread and send all message to all active computers in the network. After that we would wait for around 5-10 seconds, and execute the follow up command which is arp -a . The arp command will check the address resolution protocol and list it down. The -i 4 on the ping command instructs to ping only on IPv4 (Internet Protocol Version 4) network. That’s all there is to it. Kindly check the

Gimp Automating Image Processing with Python Fu

What a large volume of adventures may be grasped within the span of his little life by him who interests his heart in everything. — Laurence Sterne. Hi guys, one night I decided to create an online store and sell some drop ship products. I grab some pictures from the wholesale seller and planned to customize those images (just to put some store branding). There were a hundred images that I want to customize, by hand it would take ages so I decided to create a batch script. My first thought was to use Gimp (an open source image manipulator) and Script-Fu. After trying out what the result would be on Python-Fu console, I settled with this. It was a simple design but I was satisfied. Here is the script that I use. Try it out on Python-Fu console and call it convert_to_poster(n) , where n is the image number in the image list inside Gimp. You could for loop it for faster batch processing. First we set the variables. current_image = gimp . image_list ( ) [ n ]

For Her Smile (For Joane)

If she’s amazing, she won’t be easy. If she’s easy, she won’t be amazing. If she’s worth it, you won’t give up. If you give up, you’re not worthy. … Truth is, everybody is going to hurt you; you just gotta find the ones worth suffering for. — Bob Marley. I saw a lovely lady outside the door. She always wave and smile at me. When I am with her, Her smile warms my very soul. To see that gorgeous smile, That always makes me fall. As she gave me a puzzle, We played it for a few Joy whenever I finish the puzzle, As I would see her smile once more As I walk on the first level, I bump my feet as I saw her upstairs. Like an angel going down, To save me from despair. Hoping that day wouldn’t end. As she’d smile and laugh with me. If ever I were given a chance, I’d protect that smile. That smile that change, My whole perspective in life. When you think you have nothing left, I swear to you, I’ll always be there beside you. Thank you! And always smile.

Using Vim Hex Editor To View Keyboard Key Hex Code

Image
The best way to predict the future is to create it. — Anonymous. Hi guys, in this TIL (Today I Learned), we will review a way on how to view keyboard key hex code. As I modify my iTerm2 (a popular terminal emulator for macOS) key shortcuts to map my tmux Ctrl + b keys, I wonder how to get the keyboard key hex codes easily. Then I remembered that there is the xxd (a command line hex viewer and editor which is part of the vim package) command which can process keys and convert them to hex code. To start off, we run xxd from the terminal. It will wait for a read line. Execute your keystrokes (e.g. Ctrl - b ) then press enter to create a new line. After the new line add EOF (End Of File) which would corresponds to the keyboard keys Ctrl + d . After doing the process above xxd would output a hex representation of the keyboard key code that you desire. 1 Another trick using xxd command is to reverse hex string like this. echo < hex code > | xxd -revert -plain

Ten Techniques to Build Rapport

Image
We can all fight against loneliness by engaging in random acts of kindness. — Gail Honeyman. Hello guys, in life no one lives alone, and no one can live alone. In this TIL (Today I Learned) we will discuss the things I’ve learned when trying to socialize with other people building rapport and connections. Establish artificial time constraints. Allow the potential source to feel that there is an end in sight. Remember non-verbals. Ensure that both your body language and voice are nonthreatening. Speak slower. Do not oversell and talk too fast. You lose credibility quickly and appear too strong and threatening. Have a sympathy or assistance theme. Human beings want to provide assistance and help. It also appeals to their ego that they may know more than you. Suspend your ego. This probably represents the hardest technique but, without a doubt, is the most effective. Do not build yourself up—build someone else up, and you will have strong rapport. Validate oth

Checkout Specific Directory Within Git Repo

I believe that the first test of a truly great man is his humility. Really great men have a curious feeling that the greatness is not in them but through them. And they see something divine in every other man and are endlessly, incredibly merciful. — John Ruskin. Hi guys, one day I was working on a driver port to macOS (Apple Macintosh OS) and the only opensource code for it can be found on Linux kernel. Heck! The Linux kernel repository is around 2GB including all history and I only needed a specific directory inside the repository. After searching the whole internet I found an answer 1 . Here are the steps to clone a specific directory from a git repository: First and foremost you need to create a local blank repository on your workstation. git init < repo-url > Inside the created bare repository, map the remote URL of the remote repository you want to clone. cd < repo-name > git remote add origin < remote-repo-url > Then, setup the git
