If your entertainment horizons extend beyond your own language, you know that only a select few foreign movies and series end up dubbed. For the rest, you have to rely on subtitles. Unfortunately, the vast majority of subtitles are created by hobbyists, based on their version of a video that could be different than yours. Thus, they wouldn’t play in sync with your video. Until recently, you would either have to find different subtitles, wait for someone to create one, or synchronize them yourself. Now, smart tools like SubSync (Subtitle Speech Synchronizer) can do it automatically in less than five clicks…. Read more
There are a few ways you can find and locate files from the terminal in Linux, and find, locate, which and whereis are some of the commonly used commands to do so. Let us take a look at these four search commands, their similarities and differences. 1. find The straightforward approach to search for files within any specified directory is to use the find command. If the directory to perform the search is not explicitly specified, then the search will be performed on the current directory.

This Adtala ultrasonic bug and rat repellent device is advertised as having an “Upgraded Smart Chip.” Reddit user SoggyMonsoon opened the case and found a circuit with 2 LEDS, 2 diodes, and three resistors, but no Upgraded Smart Chip. Does it even emit an ultrasonic tone? A commenter said: “this circuit WOULD emit ultrasonic sound. It looks like it would oscillate between the lights. Of course it would be extremely quiet since there is no amplification circuit here to the point that I highly doubt any living thing would be affected by it, but this circuit would in fact make 2 different pitches based on the light that was currently on / diodes in use. All electric circuits have a frequency. So along those lines any electronic device would be about as effective as this thing.”
Below, a video of a test with a Bell and Howell Ultrasonic Rodent Repeller. It didn’t work. In fact, rats seem to be attracted to it:
Researchers have identified a potential issue with sensors used in some older Tesla models that misinterpreted speed signs to read the speed limit as 50 miles per hour greater than the sign stated when a piece of electrical tape slightly obscured one of the numbers.
