Trying to delete the default “Public” share on Western Digital My Cloud Mirror

Has anyone been able to do this?

I’m already connected via PuTTY. Just need to know how to comment out a few lines of code.

Ultimately, I want to be able to run this commend without getting an error:

/usr/local/sbin/ "Public" 


Cannot delete Public share

Annoying “Public” share that cannot be removed using the GUI

A solution that I am struggling to implement is here. Specifically, how do I comment out lines of code on the device, when connected via PuTTY?

Which Cloud Platform to use for Database Analytics App

Im currently in the process in creating a flutter app, i have got the UI side of things completed,

Now im looking into the clould/infrarstructure side of things,

Im looking at what is the best soloution to store the data from the app.

looking at using firebase to handle Authentication, the app will have a form that the user will input data into for activity tracking, this data needs to be stored in a cloud database that can be used for anayltics ie generating reports/charts based on the user activities

what is the best solution for hosting this data, as the user will need to be linked to that data.

i understand that firebases realtime database is probably not suited for hosting this type of data, im thinking i need to store the users auth-key with the data

preferably want the storage solution to have an API since it will be easier to get/set the data for the charts inside the app

Google Cloud DNS or Firewall issue [on hold]

We are looking for assistance related to our Magento(Bitnami) Website which is access able through https:// but we can’t access it with www. or http://. Bitnami is using tcp port 81 for http and tcp port 443 for https://.

When we tried to test our website through dnschecker it load with A record but with Cname nothing come up.

I personally think there are some issues with firewall setting.

Error creating read replica on Google Cloud SQL

I’m trying to create a read replica for Google Cloud SQL MysQL Second generation. When I click ‘Create’, I’m getting two notifications. The first one is Instance is being created, and immediately after I’m getting this error.

Operation failed: Invalid parameter: Replica should have the same network as the master: projects/myproject-production-1/global/networks/compute-network-aaa8ff1ec6b52092 vs

As you can notice, it is the same network name; the difference is that it is prepended with Furthermore, I am not able to change the network in the read replica configuration anyway, it is grayed out and defaults to the master instance’s network.

What is the right design for UI apps backed by Cloud services like AWS

I am looking for some general architectural guidance about designing good cloud apps, primarily using AWS. For the sake of argument, lets say it’s a single page app, written in JS, hitting a couple of services like S3 and maybe some Lambda functions that read/write to a DynamoDB.

Option 1 – Make calls directly using AWS SDK So, this seems to be how the documentation is written. Your app would auth the user using Cognito, exchange for the tokens, then connect to the services directly.

Benefits here: Code is in the UI, so less moving parts. Cognito seems geared towards this type of dev…otherwise your server parts would have to cache the tokens or you’d somehow have to pass them around from the client. It also seems like less cost since you wouldn’t be paying for an “intermediary” service to bounce calls off of.

Cons: Well, your code is all in the UI, making your UI bloated. It feels like too much business logic would be in the client, which feels wrong.

Option 2 – Intermediary services Basically you would write some service, be it a Lambda function or an EC2 microservice or the like, to “bounce” the calls off of.

Benefits here: Well, you would have some additional level of control. Also, these intermediaries could house most, if not all, of the business logic.

Cons: Well, the biggest one is cost as you would now have to host a bunch of extra “things” to service your calls. Also, for the most part, it would seem like most of your intermediary services would be pass-through, so where is the benefit?

How to include a TrustedUserCAKeys to Google Cloud Instances (GKE Kubernetes)

I want to connect to my kubernetes nodes (GKE) using SSH CA certificates, but in order to do so, I need to put the SSH CA public key on my fleet and add the path to the file in my sshd_config in every of my instances that gets created for kubernetes.

How should I do this? With the startup script? Or is it anything better?

Thank you

3-function program computing connected components of a point cloud given a distance matrix

I wrote this code in Haskell (instead of Python) for the educational benefit. Can anyone suggest ways to improve this code?

I’m guessing that I’m using fromIntegral inefficiently.

It takes two commandline arguments. The first is a path to a symmetric distance matrix. The second is a threshold. The program interprets vertices to be adjacent if their distance is less than the threshold. Then the program counts the number of connected components and the number of vertices in each connected component and prints this information.

import System.Environment import Data.Matrix hiding (flatten) import qualified Data.Vector as V import Data.Graph import Data.Tree  -- Turns a distance matrix to an adjacency matrix using a threshold, then prints the number  -- and size of the connected components.  -- Usage: run `stack run location_of_distance_matrix threshold` -- Output is in the form (number of bins, [number of vertices in each bin]). main :: IO () main = do         args <- getArgs         contents <- readFile $   args !! 0         let dmat = fromLists $   map (map (read :: String -> Float)) (map words (lines contents))             amat = amatFromDmat dmat $   read (args !! 1)             g    = graphFromEdges (map (\n -> (n, n, neighbours n amat)) [(1 :: Integer)..(fromIntegral $   ncols amat)])             comp = components (fst3 g)         putStrLn $   show $   (length comp, map (length . flatten) comp)         where fst3 (x, _, _) = x  -- Transforms a distance matrix into an adjacency matrix using a threshold. amatFromDmat :: Matrix Float -> Float -> Matrix Bool amatFromDmat m e = matrix (nrows m) (ncols m) threshold         where threshold entry                        | m ! entry == 0 = False                   | m ! entry < e = True                   | otherwise     = False  -- Outputs the list of neighbours of a vertex in a graph, taking an adjacency -- matrix. neighbours :: Integer -> Matrix Bool -> [Integer] neighbours n mat = map fromIntegral $   filter (\m -> row V.! m) [0..(ncols mat)-1]         where row = getRow (fromIntegral n) mat
