frequency of updates

Whenever I start my computer there are half a dozen updates that microsoft wants to settle.  I'm starting to wonder if I need one any of them, expecially in ot light the fact that so many people report problems with their computer after installing the updates.   There may be some that are important, but because there is so much, it just makes you want to ignore all of them. a bit like the boy who cried wolf.

Have you read

Most of the security-related updates are released on the second Tuesday of the month. Security updates not usually out the fourth Tuesday of the month. That being said, MS can and will release Important updates at any time.

Are the same updates continually offered but do not install or...?

  • Custom time frequency of update of Security Intelligence

    Is it possible create the frequency of update 1 m, 5 m for a list of pet food?

    For the moment, it is not possible (or rather not supported). You can manually edit the configuration file of the file system for smaller intervals, but the wait time to download power is 300 seconds, so I would not advice to go lower, because that could cause problems.

    If you want to go down the road does not support goto /etc/sf/iprep_sources.conf and change the update_freq (1 = 5 minutes, 2 = 10 minutes, etc.). Configuration is repeated by the daemon automatically, but keep in mind that the changes in the user interface of CMF will overwrite the file again.

    You can check the logs for security intelligence downloads via chat logs | grep-i iprep

    I think the settings of interval will be improved in a next version, but we'll see. :)

  • Live Mail - RSS Feed Update frequency - why this can not be changed?

    According to the help

    I should see manage the flow and be able to right click a feed and select change the workflow to change the frequency of update... None of these options exist.

    I downloaded Live and installed Mail later than yesterday. The demo version of Windows Live Essentials in programs and features (Add Remove Programs) shows 14.0.8089.0726.

    I am running Win7.

    I would really like to be able to set some of my RSS feeds to be updated more frequently than every 24 hours.

  • How to structure the DMA buffer for SMU 6341 DAQ card for analog output with different frequencies on each channel

    I use the outgoing/incoming analog DDK with the DAQ 6341 SMU map.

    The examples, for example aoex5, show a single timer (method outTimerHelper::loadUI), but the example shows the DMA loaded with same size of vector data.

    There is a comment in the outTimerHelper:call rogramUpdateCount, which implies that memory sizes different pad per channel can be used.

    (the comment is: switching between the sizes of the various buffers is not used)

    Nobody knows what should be the format the DMA buffer for data from multiple channels with different frequencies?

    For example, we want a0 with a sinusoid at 1 kHz and a1 with a sine wave of 1.5 Khz.  What looks like the DMA buffer?

    With the same frequency for each channel, the data are interleaved, for example (ao0 #0, ao1 #0; ao0 ao1 #1, #1,...), but when the frequencies for each channel is different, what the stamp looks like?

    Hello Kenstern,

    Data are always intertwined since each card has only a single timing for each subsystem engine.

    To AO, you must specify the number of samples that will be released to the AO. You also specify the number of channels. Because he didn't is that a single engine timing for AO, each AO will be channel will be updated at the same time to update clock tick. Data will be interlaced exactly as shown in the example because each channel AO needs output at each tick of the clock to update. The data itself can change depending on the frequency you want to copy.

    In your example, you must come with an update rate that works for the two waveforms (sine waves of 1 and 1.5 KHz). To get a good representation of a sine wave, you need to update more than 10 x faster than your fastest frequency... I would recommend x 100 if possible.

    Update frequency: 150 KHz

    Channels: 2

    Then create you stamps that include complete cycles of each wave you want to produce based on the frequency of update. These buffers must also be of the same size.

    Buffer 1: Contains data for the sine wave of 1 KHz, 300 points 2 cycles of sine wave

    Buffer 2: Contains data for the sine wave of 1.5 KHz, 300 points, 3 cycles of sine wave

    You can Interleave them as before. When the data are performed through the ADC, they are out different sine waves, even if the AO channels are updated at the same speed.

  • Modification of the program of "Getting Started" sample to acquire data of multiple frequencies

    Dear members,

    I am very new to the LabVIEW and worked (mainly through aid of Google) to change one of the samples included with LabVIEW 2010 programs to suit my purpose.

    Essentially, the "Getting Started" program that comes with the LabVIEW 2008 works in the following way

    1. The user runs the program
    2. The user sets the frequency to whatever is needed
    3. User presses the "Trigger" button on the front that gives the values of the two boxes on the front panel
    4. Program stops automatically

    I modified in the following way

    1. I enter the "recurrence interval" and the "maximum rate" in a table to calculate the number of iterations
    2. I then pass the frequency required in the 'constant' through dissociation TI (where I was setting at the start manually the frequency)
    3. From there, the program runs exactly as before
    4. I wrapped the existing set of block diagram in a loop 'For' to repeat several times, with a different frequency every time
    5. Then, I finally write measures in a worksheet in addition to posting on the "façade".

    The problem that I face is that the frequency is not updated in the program. For example, if the last frequency used on the parser a 20 Hz, the program will be to take measures against the same 20 Hz rather than against the correct frequencies several times.

    So, in the spreadsheet I created, I get 1 kHz, 2 kHz... 10 kHz, but the values of impedance values recorded against them were indeed all taken against 20 Hz (or how often I last used by using the non-modified program).

    I suspect that the frequency is updated whenever the user presses the button "Trigger", but since I took this, for purposes of automation and replaced by a constant static in the 'real', it could cause problems. I don't know if this is definitely the problem, but even if this is the case, I can't find a way around it.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated as this provides a bottleneck in my project.

    Thank you

  • 2015.2 available - I immediately update or act afraid and wait?

    I recently bought 2015.1 and now I see 2015.2 is released.  What people do, upgrade now or wait that bugs get sorted?  I'll wait I'm just a fan of House and have no customers or deadlines.  More important still, I would be able to fall back to 2015.1, if major problems arise and if so, how could I do?

    Thank you


    One of the main features of the creative cloud is the frequency of updates (typically three per year). If you fear constantly update, you will miss one of its key strengths. In my experience, Dreamweaver CC 2015.2 is very stable. It has several new features that improve the way it works. As a Subscriber, you can return to the previous versions, but it seems that you go back to DW CC 2015 rather than 2015.1.

    If you are an amateur starting out with Dreamweaver, I suggest you to update to 2015.2, and then work through the tutorial of eight parties that begins to How to make a website in Dreamweaver, part 1, setting up a site. Adobe Dreamweaver tutorials CC. It will introduce you to many of the features of Dreamweaver, you need to know. Yes, I wrote it, so I breath my own trumpet, but I think you will find it useful.

  • Toshiba 40TL938G blue screen on the initial screen - invalid service page

    Hi guys,.

    Today my Toshiba 40TL938G give me a bad joke.
    When I turn on the TV it gives me a message on blue screen (like windows) tells me
    "frequency of update and you have to search again for channel" and later "is not a valid service.

    I can't do nothing.
    Remote control can do nothing, physical touch on TV is not working, only power on and outside...

    Anyone know if there is a reset for tv command?
    Something like "pressed on with A key and C ' or marketing and press sequence a, c#.

    Thanks for the attention

    As far as I know and according to the user manual that I could find on the net, no, there is no reset button combination. Go into the settings to reset the TV.

    But if this isn t possible I think you need to contact a technician to check the TV.

  • 6733 continuous signal output generation.


    I want to use an NI PCI-6733 map for generation of continuous signal output.

    I downloaded the modules OR measure small DDK OR 671 x & 673 x examples (PCI & PXI) and run the samples.

    Our goal is to put a few samples in the FIFO buffer and use the external update (on PFI5) to send the samples to the exit.

    Essentially a combination of AOEX4.cpp and AOEX6.cpp example should work.

    However, example 6 uses board-> DACDirectData0.writeRegister (.) to set an output value.

    To update the output, I use the following code to generate a wave of block.

    NIPCI6733Card:nPoll_Test_T6() / / function called at 5 kHz
    t67xx * Council const = & GetNI();
    Support * const theSTC = & GetSTC();

    theSTC-> Joint_Reset.writeAO_Configuration_Start (1);
    theSTC-> Joint_Reset.setAO_Configuration_Start (0);
    theSTC-> Joint_Reset.setAO_Configuration_End (1);
    theSTC-> Joint_Reset.flush ();

    Board-> DACDirectData0.writeRegister ((OutputHigh). 0400:0 x 0 x 0);
    Board-> DACDirectData1.writeRegister ((OutputHigh). 0400:0 x 0 x 0);
    Board-> DACDirectData3.writeRegister ((OutputHigh)? 0100:0 x 0 x 0);

    OutputHigh =! OutputHigh;


    My frequency of update of application (the election) is 5 kHz. The output should run on 15, which means that each update I need to resolve before the 3 samples. I want to use FiFo for this.

    (Note: the output is triggered by PFI5 at 15 kHz)

    My idea is to 3 samples in the FiFo buffer each update of the application and leave the external trigger update of the output.

    Example 4 uses the FiFo. However, this example stops after 5 running running the same fifo data.

    How can I set up FiFo continuous data?

    370735e.PDF manual describes the following:

    With non-regeneration, old data will not be repeated. New data should be
    continuously written to the buffer. If the program don't write new data to
    the buffer at a speed fast enough to deal with the generation, the buffer
    will be negative and cause an error.

    This is what I want. Is there an example?

    Kind regards

  • Problem graphic refresh with multiple locations

    Draw two waveforms periodically to a chart (FMEM table for each iteration). Use the scope mode or scanning. Band mode seems to work a little better.

    * If a plot in a wfm-array is empty for an update, another plot will not redraw properly. It will redraw when the second parcel was given, but the first plot will be badly drawn parts data points will be absent.

    * Scan mode leave many red lines and erase some data that's in the way.

    Please take a look at the VI attached to see the (dare I call it bug) in action. If you have any ideas, please share.

    I managed to find a partial solution to this problem, but the behavior seems weird and bug - like sweep mode always looks very bad.

    I wanted to use graphics to create the best way to display the data, since I need to display several plots with high frequencies was updated, but the variable sampling rates. Before tracing data, it is already decimated so I only to draw as many points as I have available pixels.

    Solutions of circumvention attempts:
    * ForceRedraw: Do nothing. I use it wrong?

    * Reporter FP: Does nothing.

    To remove the empty FMEM at the end of the array of wfm (for an update/iteration):
    -draws first properly draw
    -don't pull on the second plot line
    -If the window is resized, the data is deleted, only the last part of the plot is visible. Looks like previous plot data are "forgotten".
    -Automatic scale will not work. It will be autoscales on the final section of data.

    * Increase the length of history: does nothing.

    * Put a flag in front of the chart: live to be redraw until the window is resized. Update graph becomes very slow. The X-scale will go berserk. I used that thing once on an indicator of flickering text and placed an invisible object in front of it, which has contributed to this situation.

    * Resize the window: works! Not a very practical solution. Scan even seems ok.

    * Use XY-graph: my goal was to make the most efficient way to display data with relatively high update rates. I used a XY, but when I got a little bit of these graphs, the cpu load was very high and I checked it was the actual writing to the graphical indicator that took all the cpu. I tried the update less often and I already decimated data before sending it to the curve, but the cpu was still too high. Replace with the graphic work like a miracle with almost no cpu load

    * If a wfm is empty for an iteration, draw the last trace point once again, but with a very small time-offset positive (I think it didn't work well plot with new): graph redraws ok in reach mode but not in scan mode. But if I draw again and again this last point, the other plot will finally cause the x-scale to autoset and I will need to keep track of the scale and not re - plot this point only if it is out of scale-x. It starts to get difficult here and I have not solved all the problems that may arise here yet, but it is of the workaround I use now. And for the graphics, I did find a way to disable this automatic update of the scale (is there a way?).

    I did and VI test to test these issues (attached), where the different workarounds may be tested by activating different buttons. Run it just in the default to run without active workarounds and it should show the issue of discounting very clearly. I tested it on 2 PC and LabVIEW 2013, 2012, 2010 and 8.6.

    This has been touted as the CAR 455443.

    Hello. I changed the x axis to display the SS in time interval using the following;

    grBurner.XAxes (0). MajorDivisions.LabelFormat () = New NationalInstruments.UI.FormatString (FormatStringMode.DateTime, "mm: SS")

    It worked well with the frequency of update to 1 Hz.

    Now the update is 4 Hz I show how the axis 1/4 seconds?  (mm: SS:?)

    Hi Nick

    No, it did not work. He put the label correct 01:30.00 = 1.5 min...

    When data is added to the curve of the index of time is out by a factor of 4. That is to say. four samples is 4 seconds 1 second No.



  • Saving AVI with overlay... slow... no work around?


    I couldn't find clear answers so I'll just ask here

    My application should do the following:

    1 - Take a picture of the camera

    2. Add the overlay (overlay consists of dynamic elements)

    3. view image in an external window w/overlay

    4 - Save AVI with overlay

    The most important thing is that the external window showing the overlay and the picture has a high refresh rate. Here's the code for that: (wow it's pretty huge...) I'm sorry about that.,.)

    First of all, it captures an image of the camera. This grab function removes all overlay that was there before (blaeh.). Second, a manifest error is used (Im lazy and did not include errorhandling.. yet), third, every 200ms (the loop runs at 20 ms) dynamic overlay items are updated on my own overlay image. The reason why I use a clean to the overlay image, it is I want to minimize the redefinition of the static elements on the overlay. Fourth - copy the overlay of my image of static overlay to the image captures. Fifth - display the image in an external window. Sixth - set reference IMAQ for a func. overall.

    This loop runs perfectly. The reason not to use 'merge the overlay' here is this is going to slow down and mess with the frequency of update...

    Second, the loop saves the AVI file:

    Firstly - the global Func is red with the ref IMAQ with image captures and layering.

    Second - this IMAQ image is duplicated. Why? Well, if the superposition of fusion will merge the original IMAQ image, it would be sort of slow down to the top of the screen external (and who becomes jerky) (betai, beats me why this happends)

    Third - the overlay is merged

    fourth - the merged overlay is saved.

    Now what happends is that this economy is just way to slow down (but doing it like I did, is not mess with the frequency of update of the external screen) and all this has something to do with the overlay of the merger. If I disable merging, everything is fine - but the video doesn't show any recovery.

    Here's an example of how the overlay may look like:

    Someone at - it no clues how can I further improve this to be faster? My AVI file gets as hectic mega when overlays that merges like the picture above!

    Cheesy Hi,

    It seems that your problem is perhaps (cannot tell from the screenshots) that you copy just a reference to your image that you use to enter into that your another loop draws from. The problem there is that you would have a synchronization problem, wherever you use the image in your AVI loop you will change this image even when it is acquired in. A simple change would be to have your Grab acquisition in loop in a local image and copy only in the world. Then you could have your copy loop AVI of this image before proceeding with any treatment. This would ensure that the image is write-only in a loop and read-only in the other, and more to ensure that these access are atomic with respect to the other (given that the copy is blocked images during the operation).


  • SmartBand GPS logging

    I've had my SmartBand for a few days now and really impressed by it. I hope that there will be more apps to add the functionality of Lifelog: driving/transport permanently; It would be nice if a 'normal' wake-up alarm could be set between my S5 Galaxy in addition to the "smart" alarm and origins of the time line, to reflect the particular location, would be nice to have.

    My real question concerns GPS logging. I loved that there no record in Lifelog, of my movements, especially when moving from one place to the other in the car. The follow-up consists of straight lines connecting points: my guess is that points to register when the GPS on the phone (in my pocket) Gets a location fix and straight lines are drawn to connect these points and to give a representation of the trip. So, what determines when a difficulty of location (point on the map) is made?

    Sometimes they are close together, sometimes very remote, which suggests this location is set to a fixed period of time: close = traffic slow; distance = speed, on clearly open road. It seems the explanation in many cases, but other times, for example when there is a great distance between points of location even if moving slowly. If it is based on time, how can I increase the frequency of update? Or is it to Venatrix mast satellite or gsm?

    As I said, I am really happy with my purchase withy and will be even happier when I get to understand more.


    Have you tried to set the location to "high precision"?  Otherwise go to Lifelog / parameters, click on the recorder and there is an option to locate mode. The default value is 'economy of battery '.

    I just found this, after reviewing my lines followed today (only I had my smartband this arvo). Were not yet again to verify it works, but it looks like it could.

    Have fun
