Hello again, ProwHost!  We last had an offer for them on February 13, 2021.  They’re bringing us some deeply discounted shared hosting offers starting at just 99 cents per month.

ms office – Word for Mac – Missing Documents in file locations settings – cannot set default folder for saving documents

Q: How to set the default folder for saving a Word document when the option is missing in File Locations?

I want to set the default path or folder for saving Word documents. However when opening Settings and clicking on File Locations there is no option to set a folder for Documents. It is missing and I cannot add it. Logging in as an admin doesn’t change it.

design – How do I write location based app, when my locations (businesses) database comes from Yelp api?

I want to write location based app, where people can search for locations (bars, pizzas, shopping places) and can create meetups for these locations.
My approach so far – I fetch locations from the yelp api using this endpoint which returns list of locations/businesses in the following format:

"businesses": (
    {
      "rating": 4,
      "price": "$",
      "phone": "+14152520800",
      "id": "E8RJkjfdcwgtyoPMjQ_Olg",
      "alias": "four-barrel-coffee-san-francisco",
      "is_closed": false,
      "categories": (
        {
          "alias": "coffee",
          "title": "Coffee & Tea"
        }
      ),
      "review_count": 1738,
      "name": "Four Barrel Coffee",
      "url": "https://www.yelp.com/biz/four-barrel-coffee-san-francisco",
      "coordinates": {
        "latitude": 37.7670169511878,
        "longitude": -122.42184275
      },
      "image_url": "http://s3-media2.fl.yelpcdn.com/bphoto/MmgtASP3l_t4tPCL1iAsCg/o.jpg",
      "location": {
        "city": "San Francisco",
        "country": "US",
        "address2": "",
        "address3": "",
        "state": "CA",
        "address1": "375 Valencia St",
        "zip_code": "94103"
      },
      "distance": 1604.23,
      "transactions": ("pickup", "delivery")
    },
    // ...
  ),
  "region": {
    "center": {
      "latitude": 37.767413217936834,
      "longitude": -122.42820739746094
    }
  }
}

When I display the different locations to the user, he/she has the opportunity to create meetup. I store meetup information in firebase. When a user clicks on a different business/location I want to fetch all meetups which have been created for this location. To do so, in my firebase “meetup” collection, I keep the business id so that I can connect the different meetups with the corresponding business, which I am fetching from yelp.

Is this approach good enough? Is this the right way to do it, in order to solve such kind of problems?

c++ – Inserting multiple elements at known locations in a vector

Goal

In the vector x, I would like to insert the elements of the vector values at indices stored in vector positions. Note that the vector positions is not sorted.

For example, from the following input

std::vector<char> x = {'H','e','l','l','W','o','l','d'};
std::vector<char> values = {'r','o'};
std::vector<size_t> positions = {6,4};

I expect the following output

std::vector<char> x = {'H','e','l','l','o','W','o','r','l','d'};

My implementation

The idea is first to sort positions and reorder values accordingly. Then, I resize the vector x so that it can welcome the new elements. Finally, I iterate through the vector x from its last index to the lowest position of insertion by asking at each step what element should go there and move this element (whether it comes from a lower index in x of from values).

#include <iostream>
#include <vector>
#include <numeric>

//// Print a vector
template <typename T>
void print(std::vector<T>& x)
{
    for (auto& e : x) std::cout << e << " ";
    std::cout << "n";
}

//// Return the indices to inform on how to sort the inputted vector
template <typename T>
std::vector<uint32_t> sort_indices(const std::vector<T> &v)
{

  // initialize original index locations
  std::vector<uint32_t> idx(v.size());
  std::iota(idx.begin(), idx.end(), 0);

  // sort indexes based on comparing values in v
  std::sort(idx.begin(), idx.end(),
       (&v)(uint32_t i1, uint32_t i2) {return v(i1) < v(i2);});

  return idx;
}

//// reorder vector based on indices
template <typename T>
void reorder(std::vector<T>& v, std::vector<uint32_t>& order)  
{   
    auto v2 = v;
    for (uint32_t i = 0 ; i < v.size() ; i++)
    {
        v(i) = v2(order(i));
    }
}


//// Insert multiple elements at specified positions into vector
template<typename T>
void insertAtPositions(std::vector<T>& x, std::vector<T>& values, std::vector<size_t>& positions)
{
  // assert values and positions are the same size
  assert(values.size() == positions.size());

  // Special case - values is empty
  if (values.size() == 0) return;

  // sort the values and the positions where those values should be inserted
  auto indices = sort_indices(positions);
  reorder(positions, indices);
  reorder(values, indices);

  // Special case - x is empty
  if (x.size() == 0)
  {
      x.swap(values);
      return;
  }

  // Allocate memory to x
  x.resize(x.size() + values.size());

  
  // Move things to make room for insertions and insert
  int pos_index = positions.size()-1;
  for (size_t i = x.size()-1 ; pos_index >= 0 ; --i)
  {
    if (i == positions(pos_index) + pos_index)
    {
      // A new value should go at index i
      x(i) = std::move(values(pos_index));
      --pos_index;
    } else
    {
      // The value from index 'i-pos_index-1' must go to index 'i'
      x(i) = std::move(x(i-pos_index-1));
    }
  }
}


int main()
{
  std::vector<char> x = {'H','e','l','l','W','o','l','d'};
  std::vector<char> values = {'r','o'};
  std::vector<size_t> positions = {6,4};
  
  print(x);
  insertAtPositions(x,values,positions);
  print(x);
  
}

It prints, as expected

H e l l W o l d 
H e l l o W o r l d 

Are there faster (or better in some other respect) implementations?

Note that

  1. in practice, x‘s size typically ranges from 0 to 10^7 and positions (and values)’s size typically ranges from 0 to 50.
  2. I have good reasons for using a vector and not a deque despite this insertion.

google cloud platform – Moving of Big query Datasets between data locations

I need to move data of some big query data sets from one data location to another without losing any in-flight data.I understand GCP supports data transfers between data sets but this requires multiple data sets to be created . Ex: To change data location of Dataset “A” , we need to create an empty Data set “B” (in the intended data location) and copy data set “A” to “B”. Now, once the copy is done , we need to delete “A” , and , again create an empty data set “A”(in the intended data location) and copy from “B” to “A” and then delete “B”. is there a better way of doing it?
