  Converting Decimal Fractions to Binary


Converting Decimal Fractions to Binary In the text proper, we saw how to convert the decimal number 14.75 to a binary representation. In this instance, we \"eyeballed\" the fractional part of the binary expansion; 3/4 is obviously 1/2 + 1/4. While this worked for this particular example, we\'ll need a more systematic approach for less obvious cases. In fact, there is a simple, step-by-step method for computing the binary expansion on the right-hand side of the point. We will illustrate the metho...

  Is Facebook becoming Tencent like?


Recently there is news that Facebook is developing a Reader application which is to compete with Flipboard and Pulse. This reminds me a few movements of Facebook in the past few months. First they built a copy of Snapchat named Poke which failed badly at last. Then they launched a new feature on Instagram named Video on Instagram which allows users to shoot and share short videos up to 15 seconds. This feature is to compete with Vine from Twitter. It seems Instagram wins over Vine on this. You c...

  Will Google+ be a "Ghost City"


Just now, I read an article about Google+’s status quo. The key point of this article is that it states that Google+ is now a “Ghost City”. According to the article, users of Google+ spend only 3 minutes per month on Google+, this is a very low participation rate for a social network website. After reading this, I wonder whether Google+ is really a Ghost City now, I cannot give my answer. Since it was released just around 8 months ago, so the user base is not very large. I registered ...

  OpenLDAP Proxy -- slapd.conf


In the introductory post of OpenLDAP proxy, we mentioned that slapd.conf is the configuration file which tells the slapd service what to do.  Apart from this, there is a dynamic way of configuring slapd where the configurations are stored in LDIF database. In the future, LDIF database will be the one for configuring slapd, the old style of slapd.conf is deprecated. The slapd.conf can be converted to LDIF style using the slapdtest command. slapdtest -f /etc/ldap/slapd.conf -F /etc...
