Notepad++ is one of my favorite applications on Windows because of all of the functionality it provides. One thing I needed to do recently was to add text to the end of each line in a text file but I wasn’t sure exactly how to do it without a little research. Below is information on how to both append data to every line in a text file and how to prefix data to every line in a text file.
We have a site that does automated tasks using GPU processing however at times we use the GPU processing for other tasks which requires us to disable access to the public. The easiest way to do this is to install a WordPress maintenance mode type plugin that will allow you to easily disable access to the public but not require much work. Having a site in maintenance mode is also beneficial for any major site changes that may prevent a bad customer experience when visiting your WP site. Below are instructions on installing the WP Maintenance Mode plugin as well as information on putting your site in maintenance mode and bringing it out of maintenance mode.
There is a device I am doing testing on that can either use dial-up as a backup connection or if the location does not have broadband it can use dialup as the primary connection. It has been interesting doing so much dialup testing recently since it has been almost 10 years since I have done much with dial-up. One of the ways to test dialing out from Linux is to use minicom which will allow you to communicate with the modem installed on your computer. So minicom will setup the connection to the modem and then AT commands can be used to dial the number of your dialup provider. Below we describe how to configure minicom and then a brief list of AT commands that can be used.
I finally got an iPhone 4 and decided to create some custom ringtones to try out on it. The first one that I created, using the method we documented in this previous article, is the sound of a dial-up modem connection. After creating the ringtone by converting an MP3 file to an m4a and then renaming then m4a to m4r I attempted to sync the iPhone to iTunes to copy over the new custom ringtone however it was not available in the Ringtone Sounds configuration section on the iPhone 4. After troubleshooting I finally figured out a solution which is documented below.
