equipment recommendation – How do I get my BlackRapid camera strap to stay on my shoulder?

I’ve been using a BlackRapid sport camera strap for a year now, and it works great, except while shooting. It is very comfortable while the camera is hanging and offers great support, but as soon as I lift my camera, the shoulder part falls down along the arm, since there is no weight keeping it in place. Recently I was wearing a jacket and didn’t notice it falling down, and the camera almost dropped to the ground.

Is this the way it is supposed to work or am I doing something wrong? I tried to close the under the arm part quite tight, and tried it loose, but nothing changed. Actually tight, it tended to pull it towards the arm even more. Is there something that can be done to prevent this?

Also, I want to have good prices for what I get.
What can you say about Kvchosting.net , iPage.com and Hostforweb.com web hosts?
Thank you guys anyway for the help.

equipment recommendation – Is there an intervalometer which will work with a Canon PowerShot SX60?

Does that camera have a plug for a cable release? If it works as a simple push-button, you could use any common/cheap intervalometer and add an adaptor for the plug needed.

Does it not have such a jack? Then how do you expect to hook it up at all? If it takes commands over USB and uses the fairly new USB profile for standardizing that, then I’ve seen high-end intervalometers that use USB.

No plug at all? Use Lego to build a gizmo to push the button, and program it using the mindstorm brick or have it commanded by a plain intervalometer that works by connecting 2 pins on a jack.

hardware recommendation – Recommended Bluetooth 5.0 Dongle for MacBook Pro 2014

I would like to use my AirPods Pro with my older MacBook Pro Mid 2014, which only has an integrated bluetooth-4 controller. While connecting the AirPods works fine, I do encounter limitations regarding range and the simultaneous use of audio input and output with the AirPods. Everything works fine when connecting the AirPods to Bluetooth-5.0 enabled Apple devices.

Can anyone recommend an external Bluetooth 5.0 dongle that does work with the MacBook Pro 15-Inch Mid 2014?

software recommendation – A quick way to change CPU governor

I need a simple GUI tool (for GNOME) to quickly change the CPU governor. I’ve tried indicator-cpufreq, but it worked only once and started printing Python errors when I ran it second time.

A lot of people would suggest the cpufreq GNOME extension, but I don’t want to use it. It takes a long time to show the window when I click it on the panel, and there are a lot of other options, which I don’t need now.

indicator-cpufreq was the best option I’ve tried. Are there any alternatives?

Exit or die in main plugin file breaking php standards recommendation

I have a few plugins that start something like this:

namespace MyPlugin;

// If this file is called directly, abort.
if (! defined('WPINC')) {
    die;
}

/**
 * Define Constants
 *
 */

define(__NAMESPACE__ . 'NS', __NAMESPACE__ . '\');

Now that I’m finally getting around to using PHP_Codesniffer to implement some PSR12 standards, I’m getting a warning:

A file should declare new symbols (classes, functions, constants,
etc.) and cause no other side effects, or it should execute logic with
side effects, but should not do both. The first symbol is defined on
line 48 and the first side effect is on line 38.

I notice that Advanced Custom Fields, which I imagine is a pretty good standard, also breaks that recommendation:

if( ! defined( 'ABSPATH' ) ) exit; // Exit if accessed directly

Obviously I could ignore the warning, for example by wrapping it in // phpcs:disable and // phpcs:enable as per Codesniffer docs, but what would be an elegant way to adhere to it?
