c star algebras – Quick question about the definition of non-degenerate $*$-morphism $A to mathcal{L}(E)$.

Consider the following definition in Lance’s book on Hilbert $C^*$-modules. Let $A$ be a $C^*$-algebra.

enter image description here

How is $alpha(a_i) x_i$ defined? Is this a function evalutation? I.e. does one evaluate $alpha(a_i) : E to E$ in $x_i in E$? Or is this some sort of multiplication? How does one multiply elements in $E$ and in $mathcal{L}(E)$ which is the set of adjointable maps $E to E$.

Why won’t my Nikon D5200 go into bulb in quick response remote mode when using a remote shutter release?

I’m burying what I believe to be the answer at the end after the explanation, feel free to jump to it.

I don’t have a D5200 but I do have a D7200, so using that and some research this is what I have.

“David Busch’s” Nikon D7200 Guide … says on page 184:

“There are three common types of lengthy exposures: timed exposures,
bulb exposures, and time exposures. The D7200 offers only the first
two (although time exposures are possible with certain remote
releases.
) …

I’m not sure whether this was a mistake or was true at the time but has changed due to firmware updates. In any case, my D7200 with the latest firmware does have all three.

My D7200 will go to Bulb while set to Quick Response, however going past Bulb brings me to Time.

In retrospect, Bulb makes no sense for an IR remote control (I used a KT-ML-L3 compatible) because Bulb nominally holds the shutter open until released and the remote simply sends an IR control pulse when pressed. In fact, putting my D7200 in Bulb and triggering the remote simply takes an exposure which is not what you normally want.

Moving the shutter setting beyond Bulb brings me to Time. It shows as Time in Live View and just – – (dash dash) in the view finder.

The Time setting works as you would expect to provide a Bulb-equivalent with the IR Remote, one IR button to start the exposure and a second one to stop the exposure. (Or three presses if the mirror up option is used.)

My Guess is that on your camera, Nikon eliminated the pointless and confusing Bulb selection for IR mode and went directly to the correct Time setting.

So Time is correct, forget Bulb.

In order for the IR to work it has to be set on in the menu. On my D7200 the menu is “Camera SymbolRemote Control mode (ML-L3)Quick-response remote (or Remote mirror-up, or 2 second delay). Note that Remote Control mode will toggle off if you turn off the camera and it will also time itself off if not used for a while.

Last but not least, make sure you IR remote is working! You stated that you hadn’t used the remote in a while, perhaps the battery is dead? Take your Smart Phone (it’s interesting that we now just assume everyone has one) and put it in camera mode. Point your remote at your smart phone camera and toggle the remote button. Do you see the remote LED lighting up in the phone display when you press the remote button? If not, you probably need a new battery for the remote.

As an aside, while the phone camera incorporates an IR filter, it is
not perfect. The intensity of the remote LED at close range is enough
to drive through the IR filter and be seen on the display. You can use
the same method to look for night time IR security systems.

Interview: Q&A with DediPath CTO Ernie Quick on His Company and Making Success Happen

DediPath

As we continue our Low End Box Interview Series, today we are talking to Ernie Quick, Founder and CTO of DediPath, a hosting company that specializes in IaaS, Colocation and DDoS Protected Services. DediPath has been in business for a few years and has enjoyed tremendous growth over that period of time. Ernie has spent most of his career in the hosting industry and so we are excited to learn more about his methods and perspectives.

So, let’s get started with the interview!

Tell me about your background and your company’s history?

DediPath was launched with the vision of providing a unique approach to Infrastructure as a Server (IaaS). To ensure the success of those that partnered with us, DediPath is committed to three foundational pillars. First, a focus on pure performance, encompassing not only network capacity, network latency, and hardware product offerings, but also supporting cast of experienced support staff. Second, DediPath focuses on the value of our offerings: providing a great experience at a predictable price, and allowing our partners to grow with us, by finding savings for them to allow us to all succeed together. Finally, DediPath ensures that we provide our partners with the utmost in flexibility, by providing a full gamut of solutions that include managed services, colocation, cloud offerings, bare metal, and DDOS protected transit. This focus allows DediPath and our partners to work together harmoniously to provide a premium solution.

What would you tell someone looking to start a hosting company today? What advice would you offer?

Having seen both sides, as a hosting customer as well as the infrastructure provider, it really comes down to understanding your needs and ensuring that your provider meets those needs in the context of your fiscal restraints. It is easy to ‘sort by cheapest’ or ‘sort by most expensive’ hoping to compensate for the performance of the cheapest or expecting the most expensive to be the best. I recommend that you take the time to see what kind of facilities a provider offers, take the time to perform ping and trace tests against their servers, and even reach out to their team to ask the questions important to you. A great organization will explain where there is a good fit, and where there it may not be. We always strive to be such a great organization.

Where do you think the future takes the hosting industry?

With world events driving a new wave of ‘work from home’, we are all starting to see more office work taking place online. Face to face office meetings have found themselves now taking place over VOIP phone bridges and live video group chats. We see offices moving their on-site infrastructure to cloud based infrastructure that can still maintain control over. With this you will likely see a continued demand for virtual desktop and VDI environments for remote workers to access while still having them managed by organizations. We will also likely see those office server closets start to make their way to datacenter colocation for those specialized appliance and server configurations.

Tell me about your top two failures in business? What did you learn from them?

A specific facility selection was one of our biggest learning experiences for sure. Having just completed a migration from the facility, we can recommend ensuring an in-depth research and selection period as well as a forecast for future growth and whether the facility can grow with you. I always recommend investing a little more time up front, which will pay dividends later. We learned from the experience and partnered with top notch facilities who offer massive expansion opportunities as well as outstanding on-site engineering teams.

Tell me about your top two successes in business? 

The people I work with as partners are what I enjoy most. I enjoy focusing on the positive in that we continuously come together. We find solutions in the hard times. We learn from each other and through each experience. I take pride in our team for giving it all, every day. I also have the honor of applauding their professionalism and experience every day.

What do you enjoy most about your role? What do you find most difficult?

I enjoy being able to see everything from a 30,000 FT overview. I think for me the most enjoyment I get, is when I see customer growth and a lot of orders in the kitchen so to speak, and watching our teams outperform and crush goals.

It is also nice to be challenged continuously as it keeps you sharp and on your toes.

Both personally and professionally, what guiding principles ground you?

Coming from a background of public service and nonprofit work, I find that those experiences have driven my direction and guiding principles. I think it is crucial that we focus on how else we can help others grow and with that, we grow as well and enable others to do the same. Knowledge sharing is crucial, as in that when one of us learns a lesson, we should recover and then begin to share that lesson with others so that they do not repeat it. With that shared experience and learning, the industry continues to grow and support those that depend on us.

Give us some details on new and exciting things you are working on?

We have one major new offering coming soon as well as an expansion of one we currently offer. Working hand in hand with the migration to residential connections and wireless connections as people move to work from home, we are continuing to expand our presence near the network edge. This edge concept means that we are constantly working to get server infrastructure closer to the end user. We have started this expansion in Las Vegas, NV and Jacksonville, FL and look to expand to 10 new locations by the end of the year.

Our next major product offering is a true clustered cloud backend storage that works with our entire set offerings. Offering nearly limitless storage expansion abilities to virtualized services, bare metal, and even colocation, we are excited to begin offering high availability storage with redundancy and replication built in with a turnkey solution for our partners.

Why should customers trust you and your business?

The organization is founded and run by industry professionals who have been building great relationships for a long time. We have a massive combined experience to pull from and have always placed the growth of our partners first. There are no corners cut as we always look to provide the best in facilities, network, and support. We continue to add features and capacity, many times at no additional cost. Our partners are our business and supporting them is the priority!

Final thoughts and anything you would like to add?

We find ourselves in the unique position of being able to support others grow their own business during a time of monumental change in both end user needs as well as exponential growth our partners are also seeing. We enjoy the candid and open conversations we can have with our partners and look to continue to grow with and support them!

adobe camera raw – ACR: Quick Color Preview While Using “B&W Mixer” tool for Black and White Photo?

In Adobe Camera Raw, when using a monochrome color profile, we get the B&W Mixer tool:
Photo of B&W Mixer tool in Adobe Camera Raw

When using this tool, I wish I could quickly enter a keyboard shortcut and see a quick color preview of the image.

Is there a quick and easy way to see a color preview of an image with a monochrome color profile in Adobe Camera Raw, without just changing the color profile?

Research

Lightroom B&W Mix: how to see where the original colors are? – this post is about seeing where certain colors are in Lightroom, which is similar, but not the same as my question. I’m interested in seeing the entire image in color briefly, not seeing a mask of a selected color.

[Please read] Best and easy method to make some quick bucks

Every day I come across a lot of these kinds of bugs/glitches that can easily be exploited to make easy money in bitcoins. Some are worth the effort; some are not. Here is an example of such a loophole that you can exploit to make easy money in bitcoins. Note that I’m not a hacker, I am just a loophole hunter that takes advantage of glitch/bugs.

Today, I came across a digital store https://bitsybay.com. As per their bio, https://bitsybay.com is a platform to buy and sell digital goods for bitcoins.

What’s the glitch? You asked. Well, this website is currently offering 10% discounts on a minimum cart value of $100, 30% discounts above $399, and 50% off above $999. This platform allows anyone to become a vendor and start selling digital/downloadable goods on their website and the first 5 sales are free of charges on all products sold by vendors due to the COVID pandemic. The vendors are paid through their split coins method. You can read more about it on their website FAQ.

Like any other eCommerce based portal, they do not charge the vendors/sellers on the discount coupons.

Vendors are not charge any selling fees for the first 5 sales.

How can I exploit these offers? Now comes the most interesting part.

Step 1. Just apply as a vendor on their website and wait for your account to get approved. Make sure to enter every information carefully and make it looks legitimate.

Step 2. Once your accounts get approved, list one or two products for sale. As always make sure that everything looks genuine

Step 3. Create another customer account and purchase your own listed products and apply the discount promo-code.

Now let’s do some calculations; the 10% discount code will give you a $10 profit.

The 30% discount code of cart value $399 brings the final cart value to $279.30.

You get $399 on your vendor account.

Profit= ( $399- $279.30)= $119.70

Similarly, the 50% discount coupon on cart value $999 gives a profit of 50% i.e., 500$

If you buy your product worth $2000 and apply the 50% discount code, you pay $1000 on your own product and get $1000 profit, which is automatically drawn to your external bitcoin wallet. Many e-com base website often uses to have this type of glitch. Earlier, even the popular online store, Amazon, had this glitch.

Where can I find the discount codes? It’s available on their homepage https://bitsybay.com with a banner.

Now..You may ask how they’re able to offer such huge discounts and not go bankrupt? Well, the simple answer is nobody starts any business with little or low funding. Going through their website and products, they’re already making huge profits by selling their own digital goods.

Should you take advantage of this glitch/bugs? The simple answer this is completely up to you. Now, I always say that loopholes are the best. You’re not technically doing anything against the rules, but it feels like you’re getting away with something. That’s because, well, you are! It’s not your fault someone didn’t do their I’s and cross their T’s, right? I am sharing this completely free. You either take and enjoy it or leave it and regret later for not taking the advantage while the glitch existed. Make Hay While the Sun Shines. As a rule of thumb,” I never exploit glitches/bugs from the poor and the losers.”

I highly recommend you use a good VPN. And delete your product listing once you looted such that others do not buy your blank item and complain about you.

How long will this exist for exploitation? Probably as long as they’re running their promotion

Update: As of today this is still working. I will update this page once the loophole/glitch stopped working.

Custom Column in CPT admin table not updated after Quick Edit save

I have a CPT named company with custom fields url and partner.

Custom column is shown properly with correct content in CPT admin table. Quick fields are also shown and properly populated for each row.

When the Update button is clicked in Quick Edit the post_meta are properly updated, values saved in database, but column’s content is not updated by Ajax. If I refresh the page custom column is displayed correctly but the whole point of this Quick Edit is to avoid a page refresh. Client will not know his changes were saved and will keep quick-editing and lose data. What am I missing?
