How to Set Up Free SSL Certificates from Let's Encrypt using Docker and Nginx

Using a MIDI Controller with Lightroom for a More Efficient Workflow
Editing images with software like Lightroom typically involves changing parameters like exposure, contrast, highlights, shadows, and so on for more than 90% of your work. These parameters are controlled using sliders that you have to drag with your mouse — sliders that emulate physical controls. But why not use such physical controls like sliders or control dials directly?

Diagnosing ASP.NET Core performance issues | On .NET | Channel 9
In the episode, Mike Russo shows us how we can use tools like PerfView and PerfCollect to diagnose performance problems in ASP.NET Core applications. He discusses how we can use the tools for performance analysis on both Linux and Windows servers. Also, we get a demo on how to inspect things like large object allocations, chatty SQL calls, and thread pool health.

Cost of Inkjet Printing Report Epson SureColor P600
This report addresses concerns and arguments about the true cost of ink in desktop photo printing.  Using the Epson SureColor P800, we conducted a series of print tests to determine how much ink is used in a full coverage 8”x10” print.  From that figure we extrapolated ink usage per square inch.  The objective is to share a realistic cost per print vision with inkjet users.  The choice to pursue photo inkjet printing is in the end an individual economic choice.

"Lightroom automatically resizes the image data to the print size you have set in the Layout panel. Providing the print output image ends up falling within the range of 180 to 1440 ppi, there is no real need to use the Print Resolution option to interpolate the print data. Basically, Lightroom automatically applies the correct amount of sharpening on a sliding scale between 180 and 1440 ppi and it is best to let Lightroom work out the optimum pixel resolution and sharpening.

Creating an If Tag Helper to conditionally render content
One of the best features added to ASP.NET Core Razor is Tag Helpers. These can be added to standard HTML elements, and can participate in their rendering. Alternatively, they can be entirely new elements. Functionally, they are similar to the Html Helpers of previous version of ASP.NET, in that they can be used to easily create forms and other elements.

Damian Edwards went on to provide some more detail about this new feature and afterwards I decided to take a quick look at it myself. I expect this post to serve as an early introduction to source linking and I will hopefully blog on more detailed elements once I’ve had time to explore them more fully. For this post we’ll focus on how we can get started with debugging into the ASP.NET Core source using source linking.

With the Rules module also receiving lots of attention I decided combining the two modules was the best approach.

Drupal 8 Views: Entity Reference Exposed Filter as a Select List | Aten Design Group
I have two content types: Art and Artist. The first content type, Art, has an entity reference field to the second content type, Artist. I have a view named “Art” which shows all Art content with an exposed “Artist” filter that lets a user pare down their results. For example, a user might use the “Artist” filter to only show art by Cleon Peterson. By default this exposed filter will be rendered by Views as an empty text input, which is pretty much entirely useless! Users may not know of Cleon Peterson and wouldn’t know to search for him.

Entity Framework Core (EF Core) is the latest version of Microsoft's recommended data access technology for applications based on the .NET Core framework. It has been designed to be lightweight, extensible and to support cross platform development.

EF Core is an object-relational mapper (ORM). Object-relational mapping is a technique that enables developers to work with data in object-oriented way by performing the work required to map between objects defined in an application's programming language and data stored in relational datasources.

dupFinder is a free command line tool that finds duplicates in C# and Visual Basic .NET code - no more, no less. But being a JetBrains tool, dupFinder does it in a smart way. By default, it considers code fragments as duplicates not only if they are identical, but also if they are structurally similar, even if they contain different variables, fields, methods, types or literals. Of course, you can configure the allowed similarity as well as the minimum relative size of duplicated fragments

How Industrial Networks can Respond to Cyber Threats
IP-based technology has brought tremendous benefits to industrial automation networks, but the adoption of IP-based technology has also raised security risks. In the past, industrial automation network operators could believe that their networks were secure because they used proprietary, serial-based communications and were not connected to the outside world. This appearance of security was always somewhat illusory, but now that industrial automation has moved to IP Ethernet-based networks, industrial automation operators can no longer afford any illusions about their network security.
