Remote Desktop – Run a NodeJS app around the clock

I own a nodejs web application that connects as a client to a websocket and sends me push notifications when certain events occur. It also has capabilities to send requests to a REST API based on information received from the same Websocket.

So far I have run this app locally and always turned my laptop on. But I'll be traveling soon, so it's not an option to keep the laptop running around the clock.

What can I do to run this app around the clock (as it always has to be connected to the websocket) without keeping my laptop running?

The only option I can think of is to run the app locally on a Digital Ocean Droplet and then load RDP into the droplet whenever I need to use it. That way it runs 24×7 and I can access it whenever I want by launching RDP into the droplet. The only worry I have is whether the cheaper droplets are so strong that I can edit them with RDP and use the app without delay.

This app does not have to be available on the web. Would it be bundled as an Electron app and then run on a remote server, considered better practice than just running it on

Appreciate your entries.

Thank you very much!

Image stabilization – Can the Feiyu G6 Plus gimbal be used as a remote shooter?

I'm looking forward to getting this gimbal, but initially I have two doubts: does it act as a sniper? What I mean is, when setting a time lapse, is the gimbal also the pictures? Or do I have to use a separate controller to set the shooter, and second, how do I mount it on a tripod? I've browsed a bit and found only people who use the included "tripod" but do not use a real tripod. Do I have to get something else?

What remote SSH commands does the cpanel try to do when it runs the rsync backup target?


Customers of have problems referring their cpanel backups to our service, and I'm not sure why …

This is what it looks like when you configure such a backup:

(I can not link to the picture because I do not have five posts …)

… and there are no other useful bugs as "XYZ can not be sent to destination …"

When I research this with cpanel / WHM, I see that the knowledge base says:

The rsync backup target type included with cPanel & WHM requires full SSH access to the remote target because multiple commands must be executed through SSH during the backup transfer phase. For example, directory creation tasks and backup cleanup tasks are performed by running the mkdir and rm commands on the remote backup destination via SSH. "

That should not be a problem – with an account, you can run general UNIX commands through SSH.

… and & md; mkdir & # 39; and & # 39; r & # 39; are allowed commands …

What would help a lot is to see what cpanel is trying to run.

Does anyone know what a cpanel backup with "rsync destination" is trying to do when it runs? Is there a script I can see?


Lock screen – 18.04 KDE screen lock shows the full user name for local users, but not for remote users (LDAP authenticated)

I have a problem where my KDE screenlocker does not display the full username for the logged-in user (for this session) if that user is LDAP-authenticated.
That is, if the screen is locked, you can not see who locked it.

It displays the full username for a locally created / authenticated user, so it is not an issue.

getent As expected, returns remote users and groups with full username fields in the same format as getent So for the local user this is not a problem with the LDAP access / results.

Where does the KDE screenlocker get the full username variable?

Thank you for any help –

api – How can I run and access on a remote server?

I installed the local computer on a server and got an API key for it. However, it seems that it only works locally and in the harbor 3000,
I need to call APIs from another server with a specific IP. Unfortunately, I could not find anything on how to access the computer and its APIs by calling a server IP instead localhost or, and how to change the default port 3000 to something else.
Can you help me please?

Malware – What are some of the harmless use cases where bytes are inserted into another process and a remote thread is created?

So suppose you develop an AV and mark any kind of injection into another process (such as opening and writing) as malicious

If so, what are some of the false positives? Will a normal user, who only wants to install normal apps and surf the Internet, be affected?

I just do not understand why a benign app needs to do this? and how often is it? For example, if this is the only one billion benign apps, why allow it?

How do I know if my camera supports wireless remote control?

I searched everywhere and apparently can not find any information. I have Olympus EPM2 Micro 4/3 format. I use it semi-professional for casual portraits and would like to use it now to take pictures of myself wearing trinkets that I do. So I need the remote control. There is a cable for this model, but I do not think the cable will be long enough.

How do I know if my camera is compatible with a wireless shutter control? How do I know if a camera is generally capable of doing so? I've looked at some models with wireless remote control and since my camera is older, I do not see it anywhere.

And otherwise, what are my options for such a project?

8 – Remote File Upload with URL Parameters

Currently, I use a digital asset management tool that allows us to host images as CDNs.

However, with the DAM we can crop the image and position it using URL parameters (example: if I have trying to upload this image remotely (in the Entity Browser) will display an error message stating that the file must be a JPG or PNG file.

Enter image description here

If you look at the URL, you can clearly see that it is a JPG image. For some reason, however, the validator registers this as a non-JPG. I tried to append the last 3 characters to the URL (n = c), but that does not work. Also, depending on the image and the change in the DAM, there may be different parameters, so this would not even be a consistent solution.

Does anyone have any suggestions? I understand that I can embed this image in CKEditor, but the solution to this question must be to improve (or work around) this problem when uploading remote files, as we use this file upload process for all our paragraph components.

Any help would be very grateful, thanks!
