I’ve been tempted to get one of these clocks for a while. Luckily I found one at my local thrift store for $3.50!! Without instructions it wasn’t too bad to setup, but understanding how it works was a nightmare without instructions. I thought it was a sunrise ONLY alarm clock, BUT the button under the FM radio is actually the sunset on/off button! I kept setting the sunset alarm as my wakeup alarm thinking that was setting the 0-100% brightness alarm, but what it was actually doing was going from 100%–>0% brightness as the time was reached. The sunrise alarm feature is controlled by the regular alarm (Bell icon).
Problem: “Error: Could not find an installed version of Gradle either in Android Studio, or on your system to install the gradle wrapper. Please include gradle in your path, or install Android Studio”
My problem was also that the path wasn’t available system wide, I could say $gradle -v” in some terminals but not all, the solution below fixed this issue. This problem was happening when I was trying to build an Ionic App for android, I had Android Studio installed as well.
I thought I’d save some money and buy some cheap USB car adapters. I think it cost about $1 each. When they arrived I questioned whether they could actually out put 2.1A and 1A in simultaneously. I opened one up and looked up the chip AD85063, did some searching and came across a similar post. The chip’s datasheet specifies that it can output 700MAh at 5v… This is nowhere close to the 2.1/1.1A specified… I quickly asked the seller for a refund, linking them to the datasheet, and they refunded me my money. Long story short, cheap comes at a cost.
I ran into this issue while booting up my server. Luckily it was easy to fix after doing a bit of research 🙂
Problem: kernel panic-not syncing: VFS: unable to mount root fs on unknown block(0,0)
Solution: remove old linux kernels, your /boot drive is out of space
- boot to grub and click on “Advanced options”
- Select a previous kernel (should boot fine)
- login and enter command
- $ df
- See if your /boot directory is 100% used
- Remove old linux kernels
- $ sudo apt-get autoremove
I installed and tried the Drive Migrator app to copy file from one account to another, it didn’t work so I removed it. I then kept getting the following error emails everyday. With about 3oo lines of errors.
Problem: Constant emails of failed scripts
I couldn’t find a good glute-free cheatsheet I liked so I made my own. To print it open it in the google doc and print double sided.
Feel free to give any feedback/suggestions 🙂
As I was biking home one day, a couple blocks from my house I noticed a flat screen TV on the curve in front of a house. I biked faster, picked up my car and inspected the TV. It looked in good conditions so I said to myself “If I can pick it up by myself I will take it with me”. I was able to lift it by myself and put it in my back seat. Plugged it in, and powered it on, I noticed a quick flash, sound turned on but black screen. Doing some googling I noticed it is a pretty common problem with these model of TV’s.
This is an awesome phone, it does everything I want it to and battery lasts more than a day :). Unfortunately I started having GPS problems and after googling soon realized it was a common problem with the phone :/ . Thanks to the XDA thread I was able to do the fix below which improved my GPS signal 🙂 . The GPS readings were taken from the front of my house for consistency.
