What’s the proper name for code that tests another code?

That seems like a stupid question, but I can’t find a proper name for “code that tests another code”. The most of literature names that kind of code just “tests” but it’s way to general in my understanding (obviously I am not an English native speaker so I might be wrong) – code might be tested by people, some external machine that is not “code” at all. The same applies to “code tests”.

I was thinking about “testing code” but this seems to be a bit confusing as it looks more like a verb than noun.

What’s the process to use a cellular wifi hotspot as an ISP?

I’m currently waiting out an ISP outage. I have a Radware box that has static rules to push clients to the secondary ISP should the primary ISP go down. My secondary is the one that’s down, so nothing is really impacted. Some servers are statically assigned to the secondary so they don’t have to compete for bandwidth.

  • The Radware has 192.168.100.1.
  • The primary ISP’s firewall’s internal interface has 192.168.100.2. It’s the default route on the Radware.
  • The secondary ISP’s firewall’s internal interface has 192.168.100.3.

Could I install Ubuntu on a laptop (or desktop with wireless) with the wired NIC connected to the Radware and the wireless adapter connected to the Verizon hotspot and forward traffic from the cellular internet side to the LAN? If so, which packages would I need?

I have OpenVPN on a different server and I don’t have routing packages installed; rather, I have forwarding rules in iptables that translate the traffic. Is that all that’s needed? I imagine then I would only need to use iptables to block incoming connections, and optionally allow specific outbound connections if I wasn’t using “ACCEPT” as the default policy for outbound conns.

Regardless of the process, I wouldn’t need to serve anything over the cell backup, so address translation isn’t needed.

My domain controllers already manage internal DNS and DHCP, so that’s not necessary.

Blowguns. What’s the point?

I know the basic advantage to blowguns is that you can’t accidentally poison yourself when applying poison to the darts, but is that really it? I feel like delivering the poison via d8 crossbow with a 5% chance to poison yourself would be better than a d2 blowgun with a 0% chance of poisoning yourself. Unless the flavor text “They are nearly silent when fired” is implying that it would be harder for your target or anyone who didn’t see the dart to locate you. Oh i should also mention CRB only.

What’s the best way to export “On my mac” POP email folders in Apple Mail to Gsuite?

enter image description here

I have a friend that was using Mac Mail with POP and has hundreds of “On My Mac” folders. She has multiple devices and can’t see these folders as they are all stored on only one of her devices.

I created a Gsuite account for her and now want to import all these folders to labels in Gmail containing all the emails in them.

I see options for paid software that converts Mbox exports to PST, and then use the Google PST migration tool on a Windows computer. Is this the best method that will keep all the folders/labels? Is there a better method?

Thanks!

What’s the goal behind signing a CRL with an old certificate key?

I was reading a CPS/CP for a CA, and it mentioned that there’s a possibility after rekey that you can still use the old key to sign CRLs of the old end user certificates verified by the old CA certificate, the only case where I see that would be applicable is if a browser for example doesn’t add the new CA certificate in its trust store for a period of time and so it can’t verify the new CRLs, is that the case ?

Thank you!

What’s the best tool to run Landing Page user test Unbounce or Axure

We are planning to run different tests to validate the best solution for a landing page that aims to increase lead generation. I am thinking of creating prototypes (a few prototypes because we want to run A/b Tests as well), publishing this prototype and promoting campaigns to generate traffic in this prototype in order to collect user inputs. Thus, it will be very important that this prototype is high-fidelity with refined interactions.

The problem is, I’m in a clash with my product owner about which tool we should use to generate these prototypes

I’m very inclined to use Axure. As well as being more familiar with the tool, it allows us to have great flexibility, in addition to creating a high fidelity prototype that seems a final website. However, she insists that we should use Unbounce.

I can not find an answer that can help me choose the best way to go forward regarding the tool I should use.

does anyone have any inputs about that may help me to clarify this question?

Thanks

What’s the difference between Acfg and ALLcfg

In computational theory, and talking about CFGs, Turing Machines, and so forth I haven’t a satisfactory explanation or definition for what ATM means versus ALLTM or the same or similar uses with CFGs, etc. Does the single A stand for any, some, one, or all instances of the class whether it’s a TM, a CFG, or anything else? Conversely, ETM and EQTM are obvious as to what they mean.
