Are Jupyter Notebooks the best for keeping extensive notes?

Probably a dumb question since they're literally notebooks... But lately I've been making a big paradigm shift towards command line tools and languages and while I'm slowly becoming more tolerant of the RTFM philosophy, I'm having a lot of trouble remembering shell commands/syntax. Would y'all recommend Jupyter for taking organized notes, or maybe something else?

PDF text editing software?

Free software is ideal but I’m not opposed to paying if the edits to the text are visually untraceable.

[S] Swiss Army Knive of 2FA

Hello,

I'm on the hunt for the Swiss Army knife of two-factor authentication.

What I'm looking for is a cloud- or server-based 2FA solution. It's essential that it comes equipped with a client for all major operating systems, at the very least for Android, Linux, and Windows (nice to have: macOS or iOS, though not an immediate requirement).

Ideally, I'd like to log in using an account (Google, Microsoft, ...) but absolutely not with my phone number, à la "Twilio Authy".

Best case scenario, it should be open source.

I want the same program on every OS with identical capabilities, allowing me to log in from any of my devices to any of my accounts. Whether I host the 2FA codes myself or entrust them to a third party is inconsequential; the key is a cloud-/server-based solution, not dependent on the client, and compatible with all common OSs.

But frankly, I'm at a loss for what else to look for. It seems I either find one thing or the other.

The bottom line is, I want a client I can install on any operating system, with the ability to specify the same cloud/server everywhere. And preferably open source. Is that too much to ask? Am I asking too much, or am I just not savvy enough to search effectively?

Currently, I'm without a smartphone (it's broken), which means I'm locked out of my accounts. It's beyond frustrating.

If need be, I can set up and host an OTP/2FA server on one of my webservers. I've found options like Authelia or Authentik (even with my own Nextcloud if necessary). But so far, I haven't stumbled upon an open-source client that allows me to specify my own server/self-hosted cloud, or an open-source client for each OS that connects to a third-party cloud.

I hope I've expressed myself clearly enough. If not, I'm open to questions.

Thanks

Does software like Audacity exist, but with video? (Not audio editing, but specificially continous recording and instantly editable timeline)

I do a lot of voiceover work in audacity and being able to quickly CTRL-Z the previous take to instantly rerecord saves me hours and hours of having to go through the entire timeline of failed takes again.

Problem is I sometimes also have on-camera visuals and combining these two workflows has been a bit of a pain. (I use either just on-camera recording or OBS currently)

So I'd basically want software that just allows recording exactly like audacity, but with an additional video feed/timeline.

Thanks!

Looking for Software to Help Organize Free-Time Activities

Bear with me on this one.

My girlfriend and I want to make an exhaustive list of stuff we can do in our free time. In doing so, I’d like to be able to add tags to each “thing” or activity. I’d also like to add sub-categories for each activity.

For example, if one of the activities was something like, “Go to a bar” or “Bar hop” I think it’d be cool to add tags like, “Expensive,” “Food,” stuff like that that would pertain to that activity to make searching for activities with certain traits easier. I’d also like to be able to dig down into each activity to get more ideas. Following with the “Go to a bar” example, I think it’d be cool to be able to add a sub-page or something to the activity. So that way, when I click or tap the activity, I can see a list of bars we could go to.

I know a lot of IT documentation software works similarly to this. I feel like there has to be a watered-down database tool or something out there that can do this. I would use something like that but don’t need something quite that in-depth. It would be awesome if I could use/access the software on my phone, but would be fine using it on my PC, too.

Any ideas appreciated! Thanks in advance!

Best "timeline" software to place events at regular and irregular intervals?

Hi!

The question is in the title, but here is a use case to better explain what I would need such a software for:

- I'd like to put events at regular intervals (do X every 2.5s for instance, with decimal support).

- I'd like these regular intervals to be edited and events that are already placed on the timeline should move accordingly (one value for multiple regular intervals, so events become closer together if interval is lower, or bigger gaps if interval is higher.

- Some of those intervals would be irregular, so a way to place "custom-timed" events, or have another value for another group of intervals (support for multiple groups of regular intervals, maybe?), would be great.

- I'd like these events to appear on one graph, or on differents graphs at the same scale for time measurement purposes.

- Ideally, I'd also like a feature where an event cannot be placed within Y seconds/minutes from/to any given event

Example:

I want Event A every 3s, then after 5 Events A (that would be 1 group of intervals, or maybe events), do Event A every 2s (that would be a second group of events/intervals).

Additionally, I want Event B every 5s (a third group of events/intervals?)

Each dot represents 1 second

Separate graphs

0---------5---------10--------15--------20
A · · A · · A · · A · · A · A · A · A · A
B · · · · B · · · · B · · · · B · · · · B

Same graph

0----------5---------10--------15--------20
AB · · A · B A · · A B · A · A B A · A · AB

I guess Excel or Google Sheets could do it, but I'm not exactly well-versed in the art of spreadsheetcraft, so any alternative would be extremely useful :p

If what I'm asking for is way too niche and doesn't exist, then I'll take the plunge and learn haha

Thanks!

A PDF to HTML Converter that does not use absolute positioning for layout (linux prefered)

Almost all of the pdf-to-html converters out there that I've used (the free ones) use absolute positioning for the document layout, but I want to create a more flexible, flowable HTML representation for my PDFs

I'm under Dilemma - Engineering Manager or Staff engineer.

Reposting for wider audience:

So, here's the thing. I'm being given an oppurtunity to choose between technical management path or engineering path. I'm under heavy pressure of my own to not choose whats not good for me after sometime. I have gone through number of articles reading pros/cons of both and had multiple 1:1 with my seniors on both tracks. But to decide it all comes to personal choice. Still wanted to know your opinion, if somebody has been under simiolar situation and what did you choose? What made you choose 1 instead of the other? Are you enjoying and not missing out the other part?

Windows 10 missing wireless adapter and drivers

I had to do a limited install on a new computer I built because I don't have access to an Ethernet connection and now I can't connect wirelessly with my external adapter, I can't find anything helpful on the Microsoft forums or YouTube so I figured I'd ask here. Wireless doesn't show up as hidden under device manager or in advanced options on network settings, I have this problem every time I never remember how I worked through it or if I did anything differently.

I'm ending my relationship with Google Chrome. I'd recommend you do too. Chrome is an abuser of your privacy and is opposed to the fundamental philosophy of the internet, freedom of information.

Hey I know the browser wars are serious but I think they just got MORE serious. I've always been an avid chrome user but enough is enough. They don't care about your privacy. They are mining our data for their own maniacal purposes (so many maniacal purposes, too many to list), and all we are to them are a bunch of cattle to feed advertisements to.

The YouTube adblock war is the final straw for me. Google's vendetta against adblock plus has actually made it very hard to watch miss Rachel with my two year old on YouTube. I don't want my two year old watching any predatory ads. The final straw for me anyways was when my computer began to lag and stutter with YouTube open. Later I found out the reason was the adblock war.

Today I searched the words "Mass Flow Meter" and all I received were endless product advertisements. I just want to learn about the concept.

So I decided that is it. I uninstalled chrome and I'm going to do something else. I think Mozilla firefox. If not that, then maybe Duck Duck Go.

"Don't be evil" was originally what drew me to Google. Those days are long gone. I want the internet to do what it was promised to do. Be a global hub of information. This is not Google's plan. They want to own the internet and extract all the wealth they can, like a giant parasitic leech.

Goodbye chrome. Don't let the door hit you on the way out.
