Are there any digital photo frames that hang in portrait orientation?

If you can find one with two “keyhole” style holes in the back you can mount it vertically (portrait mode) by placing the mounting screws into the wall in the correct orientation and sliding the frame onto the screw heads from the side rather than from above. It will be a little less secure than in the intended landscape mode, but a small piece of double-sided foam tape placed between the frame and the wall near the “bottom” edge of the frame (when in landscape mode) should be enough to hold it in place. Just be sure to keep that edge of the frame tilted slightly away from the wall until the “keyhole” is slid all the way onto the heads of the screws in the wall.

You may also have to manually rotate all of the images on a computer prior to loading them onto the frame, or onto a memory card to be used in the frame. I doubt a frame that is not made specifically to be displayed either way will be able to do it automatically by sensing which way is down.

Having said all of that, it took me all of about 15 seconds to find these Nix photo frames with mounting keyholes for either orientation, offered in four sizes from 8″ to 15″, on amazon.

B&H offers a few similar frames as well, including this 12″ digital picture frame.

No longer than it took me to find these, I would think that they are not that uncommon at all. Be sure to include the word “portrait” in your search.

networking – Apache Intermittant Hang is it Network Lag?

I have an intermittent lag on the web applications I am serving from Apache on a Debian box. Apache and MySQL check out. I am far from fully utilizing the box CPU/Memory. Still there is an intermittent lag. My theory is there is a network rate limit needing to be tweaked. Stats below.

I do not know what stats would be relevant beyond these in diagnosing network rate limiting issues. Any pointers would be appreciated.

physics – Can I hang a heavy lens vertically from the body?

I recently purchased a Cotton Carrier system which uses a clip to hang the camera vertically from the chest area. I am using this with a D500 and a 200-500 lens, which has a tripod foot. When I am using a tripod, naturally I use the Arca-Swiss mount to attach the tripod foot to the tripod. However with the Cotton Carrier, it would keep the camera closer to my body and more stable if I could attach their clip to the body rather than then lens.

Is this an acceptable way to carry a body+lens? I understand it would not be a good idea if the lens were held out horizontally from the camera, but I don’t know the physics of it if the lens is vertical underneath the body. It is a different direction of force, but I am unsure if it is worse/better.

Installing any NVIDIA drivers causes 20.04 to hang on boot

(While this question may seem like a duplicate, I’ve tried the solutions laid out in all the other similar questions and none of them did anything for me. In addition, they were asked years ago, so I doubt they were running 20.04 anyway.)

The problem is that when I install any NVIDIA drivers (this means 440, 435, and 390, since they’re the ones available from the package manager. I’m willing to try others if you think it would help, but I haven’t yet), the system can’t boot. I can’t drop to terminal or anything either—all of the Ctrl+Alt+Fx keys just show a flashing black cursor and nothing else, and when I try to go back, I can’t. The only way to get out of it is to use Sysrq+REISUB. Then I have to boot in recovery mode and execute apt purge ^nvidia to get rid of the drivers before it will let me boot again. When I am logged in (whether it’s recovery mode or just the desktop) my graphics card is shown in lshw -C video and lspci as a 3D controller. Here’s the exact output:

01:00.0 3D controller: NVIDIA Corporation TU117GLM (Quadro T2000 Mobile / Max-Q) (rev ff)

What I’ve tried so far:

  • Editing /etc/gdm3/custom.conf to uncomment WaylandEnable=False
  • Editing the grub boot to add nouveau.modeset=0
  • Adding ppa:graphics-drivers and trying to install any of their packages which are listed on—APT is Unable to locate package nvidia-graphics-drivers-<version>.
  • As I said, I’ve tried using all of the drivers available to me from APT, including the ones mentioned above and 340. When I tried 340, the computer was completely unresponsive after boot—I couldn’t even use SysRq to reboot, so I had to hold the power button.

Previously to this I’ve actually been able to use the GPU fully. I think it initially broke because I tried to use LightDM, but now that I’ve uninstalled it, the drivers still don’t work.

Please help!

dnd 5e: Can Thorn Whip be used to hang an enemy in combat?

Everybody "you are the DM, so you decide"The answers are technically true, but they miss the big picture, that you just created a home rule that is completely unbalanced.

Thorn Whip is a cantrip that deals 1d6 damage and increases 1d6 over the usual cantrip levels. This means that it will cause between 1 and 6 damages.

Now add weight / 25 damage to the mix. Suppose we are dealing with a relatively average 175-pound person. That's a flat damage of +7, which is absolutely ridiculous. A cantrip that deals 1d6 + 7 damage is not balanced in the least. Warlocks can get 1d10 + 5 with a little investment, and everyone knows how that ends, with warlocks essentially just spamming Eldritch Blast the entire game and not much else. And that's a "relatively average person", once players realize this hack, wait for them to start carrying their maximum carrying capacity before doing this hack for extra damage + 4 easy. Or by making heavier characters. You could easily get a flat damage of +20 if you make a Goliath druid that has its maximum capacity.

Then, on top of that, you decided they can instantly KO someone if they manage to hold on for 1 + CON turns of the monster AND essentially face each other in the air, so out of the fight? All for the low cost of a single trip.

Go by the & # 39; rule of how great & # 39; It's great, but you must realize that you are setting a precedent here. You've taken a cantrip meant for minor damage and crowd control, and you've made it one of the deadliest murder tools out there.

A Champion NPC has 143 HP, +2 CON, and a CR of 9. With your new Thorn Whip rules, a single low-level druid can eliminate him in 3 turns. This will dramatically unbalance the game if the Druid starts using this more frequently, making it much less fun for other players who are stuck with their normal tools.

hang: the process cannot be deleted in Catalina 10.15.3 due to the freezing of the secondary dialog

(MacOS Catalina 10.15.3)

How can i kill?
1. secondary windows of a process that appear to be preventing the main process from ending after using kill -9 ####? (At least this is what I think should be done in the next step: I can't eliminate the main process).
2. How can I kill / restart Activity Monitor?

Here is an explanation of what happened:

i ran McGimp-2.10.4-std To do some image manipulation I needed to do. When I tried to upload the images I intended to work with, Catalina's new permission system did not allow me to access my desktop folder and, therefore, I could not upload the images I wanted to manipulate. So, I worked around this by moving my images to another folder that Gimp could read.

I did what I had to do, but when I tried to save my new image, Catalina's permission system worked again and she denied me access to my Documents folder (or that is what I think it was) and presented me with a dialogue that Reported the problem. . After clicking on the dialog box, I discovered that the window for saving gimp files did not respond to any of my actions.

Then I opened the Activity Monitor with the intention of killing Gimp. However, the Activity Monitor, after rendering its window frame, stopped responding even before it had filled out the usual process table (CPU tab). Unable to finish the gimp process through the GUI, I opened a terminal with the intention of killing it through CLI.

After running ps aux filtration gimp using grep, I had two instances of gimp, one was the image I was editing and the other was the frame & # 39; root & # 39; of gimp. Using kill I could close the frame & # 39; root & # 39 ;, but kill In the framework of my image, the process did not end. * So now I have a Save File dialog box on the main Gimp user interface along with the two tool windows stuck on my desktop that I can't get rid of. Although I cannot execute any gimp command, I can drag the file windows but not close them.

So I switched to the root user and tried again without luck. So, not even the root user can kill this process, and I still have to figure out how to kill / restart Activity Monitor.

Has anyone had a problem? Is there any way to overcome this without having to restart? (At the moment, I have moved them to a separate desk).

I have to restart since the process is in a busy loop and will eventually fry my CPU.

dialer – Dial phone, blank screen -> cannot hang up

My Nokia 4.2 (Android One 9, security patch for December 5, 2019) lately exhibits very strange behavior. If I dial a number, either using the keypad or from the history or a contact, the screen goes blank. I don't mean white space when it hits my face, I mean it turns black immediately. As a result, I cannot hang up a call (or make a conference with a third party, or anything).

If I touch the power … nothing happens. If I put it in my face and take it off … nothing. If I keep off, the phone does not turn off. When the other person hangs up, the screen turns on again. Sometimes, if I press On several times, I can turn on the screen. Sometimes not.

Of course, I can connect headphones and use the headset button to hang up, but for a quick call I hate having to do that.

Otherwise, the phone generally works well. No other obviously incorrect behavior.

Odd. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

accident – frequent gnome shells hang at boot

Ubuntu 18.04.3
gnome-shell 3.28.4
x11 (X.Org 1.19.6)

I have struggled with this for many months, but recently it is getting much worse.

When I turn on the computer, the boot process often freezes with a black screen. Sometimes I end up with a desktop that doesn't show desktop icons. Sometimes they return me to the screen where I have to re-select my user and re-enter my password. In any case, I end up with a lock log file located in / var / crash. Usually, it goes from 50 MB to more than 200 MB. But, I'm not a technical person, I don't know how to interpret the content of that file. Obviously I can see that it says that gnome-shell crashed, but I already knew that.

As I wrote earlier, I am not a technical person. I don't know how to track the problem, what tools to use to do that, etc.

I know there are many gnome-shell blocking questions here and on the Internet in general. But, I often don't understand what is being discussed, or I can say that the problem being discussed is different from mine.

I would include information here to show the problem, but I don't even know what information they would like to see.

For my level of experience, what I ask is this:

1) How do I diagnose what the problem is?

2) What tools / commands should I run to help me find out what's wrong?

3) If Ask Ubuntu is not the right place to ask about this, any ideas on where you should go for help?

Thanks in advance.

hang – and accountsd are taking all Mac OS 10.15 CPUs

Suddenly (I did not see when it is happening and when it is stopping) the CPU peaks, which come from and all accounts.

I took a screenshot of the activity monitor, as well as the console, where, when this peak is happening, it is creating +/- 3500 messages per second, all the same as the one shown in the screenshot.

Screen capture activity monitor:
Screen capture console:

Most messages are like this:

Connection error changed for account:

This for all email accounts. Killing all accounts and reading or disabling them didn't help

In addition, another strange thing that happens is that, in the message list, some users (I discovered that they are in the contacts and have a different chain in the contact entry than in the one they provide in the email header) will flash every second of to each other name on this list It is a constant blinking, say every second, a little delayed the further down the list is the mail.

The current "solution" is to stop the and restart it, it will be good for up to 10 minutes and will happen again.

any ideas ? Started updating from 10.14 to 10.15

Latest version of Mac OS 10.15.1 (19B88)

Thank you


hang up – iPods crashes – Keynote freezes and fails

The company I work for has begun replacing approximately 150+ old fourth-generation iPods with new sixth-generation iPod touches.

All we use is Keynote + an HDMI adapter (sometimes Apple TV), but each of them seems to overheat and freeze dangerously (or fail / break) during our shows.

Unfortunately, they don't give warnings either. They just freeze and then only respond after the HDMI adapter is removed and the screen turns off + turns on again … It seems to only happen when using Keynote too, which is frustrating since it is the application we need desperately to work! 😕

Please help?!? CALL FOR HELP!

Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks! 🙂
