How to Use “adb sideload” to Update a Nexus Without Root or Custom Recovery

1. Install Android Debug Bridge and make sure your device is recognized in when typing "adb devices".
2. Download the OTA zip file. 
3. Type "adb reboot-recovery"
4.Your device will boot to an Android logo with a exclamation mark. To jump past this, you either have to press power and then volume up or vice versa. Try both ways. 
5. With Volume Down, highlight “apply update from ADB.” 
6. Open up Cmd Prompt and type "adb sideload .zip"  (drag the zip to the cmd prompt)

4 Biggest Mistakes When Choosing a Car Transport Company

1. Believing the cheapest auto shipping quote is the best

There are many corrupt or non trustworthy companies in the car transport industry. The car transport industry as a whole has got a bad reputation from these companies. Many of these non-reputable car transporters will “low ball” auto shipping quotes in order to get a customer’s business. The customer will see these quotes as the best value for their dollar. However, the customer is unaware that these types of car transport companies have no real intention of shipping their vehicle at the stated price. They now have bid the vehicle too low to get it moved in a timely fashion. After the vehicle has not moved for an extended period of time, they will call the customer back with some excuse (fuel prices have went up, driver is asking for more money, we made a mistake on the bid, etc.). They will tell the customer they need more money to move the vehicle. This is called back ending the customer. This is the same method that bad construction contractors use on clients. They bid the job low and then tell the client there have been some unexpected expenses, which raises the cost. Using car transport companies like this will usually end up costing you more than a reliable company that had a higher starting quote.

2. Signing a contract with an auto transport company

Most customers do not realize the best car transporters do not use contracts. Yes, you heard correctly. In the car transport industry, contracts are used to protect the company, not the customer. The primary purpose of a contract in this industry is to excuse the company of any damage to vehicles and to allow them to keep a customers deposit even if the car is never shipped. Yes, they want to keep your money even if they did not ship your car. This problem can be avoided by understanding the deposit process described in mistake number three.

3. Giving a deposit when you place your vehicle shipping order

In most cases, if a car transport company is asking for a deposit when you place your order, they are not a good company. These same companies will ask you to sign a contract with them. In the fine print of the contract, it will say the deposit you have just given them is non refundable even if your vehicle is never moved. However, there are exceptions to the rule. There are reputable car transport companies that collect the full vehicle shipping price, not a deposit, when a customer places an order. Another acceptable method is to collect a deposit, not when the automobile transport order is placed, but when a pickup date has been scheduled.

4. Selecting a car transport company without doing research

The easiest way to not waste time or money when choosing a car transport company is to do some research. If you have a friend or family member that has shipped cars before, ask them for a referral. If you are buying a car from a dealer, they will most likely have a car transporter they use on a regular basis. If you are moving your home, ask your home movers who they use for vehicle shipping. All of these referral sources are good methods to find a reputable car transport company. The Better Business Bureau also is a good place to find a solid company. There are a couple of automobile transport review sites on the web that allow customers to rate their experiences with car transport companies. These websites are often owned by companies that have a vested interest in other for profit auto transport industries. The best external, non partial review site is the BBB.

Newbie~Noob Guide to FreeNAS, Plex, CouchPotato, Sickbeard (Torrent / Pirate Bay Version), and Transmission (FreeNAS 9.2.X)

This is my setup on my Windows 8 machine. Make sure you have read the manual to double check things over as well.

*NOTE* This is my newb guide. I'm a new too! If you don't trust anything here, look it up in the WIKI!!!! After 5+ installs and multiple headaches I decided to write this for myself and others ;)  Be aware this isn't the most secure. It's using a guest user with full permissions and no passwords.
  • Buy the right hardware. Test it to make sure it works. (HDD's, ECC RAM, ETC)
  • Installing and upgrading FreeNAS (Make sure your USB drive is greater than 2GB)
  • To fiddle with BIOS or the Console Setup you'll need a motherboard with IPMI (the best case scenario), a cpu with integrated graphics, or a cheap GPU. IPMI allows you to just control it via your desktop/laptop computer. You set up the BMC for IPMI in the BIOS. If you don't have a display, you can type "arp -a" in the windows command prompt to see if the IPMI IP Address is listed. Then just put that into your address bar and log in. Your motherboard should have information in the manual for it too.
Transmission Setup: 

Plex Setup:  
CouchPotato Setup: 
Sickbeard Setup (Torrent Version): 
  • Enter into the Jail Command-Line for sickbeard and type these commands
  • service sickbeard stop
  • pkg install git nginx python
  • rm -r /usr/pbi/sickbeard-amd64/share/sickbeard/Sick-Beard /usr/pbi/sickbeard-amd64/etc/sickbeard/* && git clone https://github.com/SiCKRAGETV/SickRage.git /usr/pbi/sickbeard-amd64/share/sickbeard/Sick-Beard
  • service sickbeard start
  • chown -R media:media /usr/pbi/sickbeard-amd64/share/sickbeard/* this gives media permissions to update from the git.
  • Now exit out of the shell.
Gui Setup: 


Optional Settings: 



Helpful Commands:

- To change user/group of a folder/file:

chown -R guest:guest */file of folder/

- To change permissions of a folder/file:

chmod -R 777 */file or folder/

- To enter a jail

jls    (lists the jails and the jail #) 
jexec # tcsh  (enters the jail) 

zpool status  
zpool iostatus 

ls -l (lists the files and the groups/users/permissions)

nano /var/log/messages  (view the log from freenas)

rm -rf     (to delete a folder or file) ~ rm = remove, -rf = recursive forced  mkdir = make directory

How to set your Dota2 autoexec properly

After countless hours of researching I finally figured it out.

Myths:

  • You don't need "exec autoconfig.cfg" in your config.cfg
  • You don't need "+exec autoconfig" in your launch options
  • Neither the config.cfg nor the autoexec.cfg need to have the "read-only' flag. If they have it, turn it off.
  •  Don't use "-novid" in your launch options unless you want a lower resolution minimap. Discussion here.

 It might even happen just from alt-tabbing.

 Steps:

1. Turn off steam cloud.
2. Navigate to your config directory: C:\Steam\SteamApps\common\dota 2 beta\dota\cfg (yours may differ)

3. Copy/paste your config.cfg
4. Rename your config.cfg to autoexec.cfg (make sure it's a .cfg file and not a .txt)
5. To test it put something in the autoexec.cfg like:

 con_enable "1" bind "f12" "toggleconsole"

6. Launch Dota2 and disable every bind. You do this by left clicking the bind, and then right-clicking it. Mainly the binds the autoexec might conflict with. What happens if you don't do this is you launch the game, autoexec runs, and then the game overrides the autoexec with these binds.
7 Exit Dota2.
8. Re-Launch Dota2 and now your autoexec should work!

If you go to options after logging back in and your settings are back that means it didnt't work. They should be EMPTY always.

 Hope this helps someone!

**FYI: If you want to use ALT+Q, ALT+W, etc for your item binds just do those in game. Something is not working in the config for item binds like that**  

Technically this should work but it doesn't:

//ITEM SLOTS
//bind "ALT+q" "dota_item_execute 0"
//bind "ALT+w" "dota_item_execute 1"
//bind "ALT+e" "dota_item_execute 2"
//bind "ALT+a" "dota_item_execute 3"
//bind "ALT+s" "dota_item_execute 4"
//bind "ALT+d" "dota_item_execute 5"

Theism in a nutshell.


  • Good Things Happen To Good People - God is rewarding the righteous.
  • Bad Things Happen To Good People - God works in mysterious ways or is just testing our faith.
  • Good Things Happen To Bad People - They will receive their ultimate judgment.
  • Bad Things Happen To Bad People - God is punishing sinners.
