Accessing Network Drives Using CIFS for Mac OS-X

Accessing your network drives on a Mac using OS-X can be accomplished using a system named CIFS (Common Internet File System). CIFS is very useful as it does not require any special software applications to use it; it is built in to the operating system of your computer. CIFS can be used to access your network drives from on- or off-campus, as long as you have an Internet connection. It will allow you to directly edit files on your network drives using Finder on your Mac. How to Access Your Network Drives Using CIFS If you are off-campus, you will need to log into the VPN before following the below steps. Instructions can be found here. Click on FINDER to launch a new Finder window. Click on the GO menu, which should be along the top…

linuxmint

Linux mint The purpose of Linux Mint is to produce a modern, elegant and comfortable operating system which is both powerful and easy to use. Linux Mint is the most popular desktop Linux distribution and the 3rd most widely used home operating system behind Microsoft Windows and Apple Mac OS. Some of the reasons for the success of Linux Mint are: It works out of the box, with full multimedia support and is extremely easy to use. It's both free of cost and open source. It's community-driven. Users are encouraged to send feedback to the project so that their ideas can be used to improve Linux Mint. Based on Debian and Ubuntu, it provides about 30,000 packages and one of the best software managers. It's safe and reliable. Thanks to a conservative approach to software updates,…

Linux: Find Out Directory Size Command

I am a new Linux user. How do I find out size of a directory on Linux operating systems using command line options? You need to use the du command: [a] Find and estimate file space usage. [b] Summarize disk usage of each FILE/Directory/Folder. [c] Shows the sizes of directories and files. Syntax The basic syntax is: du du dirName du [options] dirName Examples Without any options, du command shows the names and used space for each directories including all sub-directories in the current directory: du Sample outputs: Fig.01: du command in action To find information about /etc and /home/nixcraft directory, enter: du /path/to/dir du /etc du /home/nixcraft du /root /home/nixcraft Pass the -h option to get output in human readable format i.e. show output in kilobytes (K), megabytes (M) and gigabytes (G): du -h /etc…

Where can I start learning how to use TensorFlow?

TensorFlow: smarter machine learning, for everyone , Just a couple of years ago, you couldn’t talk to the Google app through the noise of a city sidewalk, or read a sign in Russian using Google Translate, or instantly find pictures of your Labradoodle in Google Photos. Our apps just weren’t smart enough. But in a short amount of time they've gotten much, much smarter. Now, thanks to machine learning, you can do all those things pretty easily, and a lot more. But even with all the progress we've made with machine learning, it could still work much better. So we’ve built an entirely new machine learning system, which we call “TensorFlow.” TensorFlow is faster, smarter, and more flexible than our old system, so it can be adapted much more easily to new products and research. It’s…
