terminal – How do I access files, copy them on an external hard drive, and see them on it?

I’m trying to recover the password of an old iMac with a little trick I’ve learned. To do that, I need to access recovery mode, which doesn’t work for some reason. I know the shortcut is cmd + R. I’ve also tried Shift + cmd + R but that didn’t work either. So I went into single user mode to access the files, which worked. I have an external hard drive that is formatted as Mac OS Extended (Journaled) to put the files I’m looking for on the iMac into the drive. I copied them and I went to my computer to access it. But now my drive isn’t mounting!

When I did the copy I ran the command cp <file> /dev/disk1s2. When I try to mount it on the other computer to see the files, I tried mounting it through the command line with diskutil mountDisk /dev/disk2 and diskutil mount /dev/disk2s2. Both commands gave me an error saying that the disk failed to mount. I also tried mounting it through Disk Utility but nothing happens.

I need those files because it contains the password of the computer. How am I going to see the files? I’ve also tried going into another user account and copying the files but that user needs sudo to access them and that user isn’t part of the /etc/sudoers file. In Single User mode, I tried to add the other user to the file but everything is read-only even though I ran /sbin/mount -uw. I think if someone told me how to fix the read-only issue in Single User mode, I would be able to create a new admin account by running rm /var/db/.AppleSetupDone The user account I’m trying to recover is the admin account of the computer so that’s why I think that would work.

can not access bitcoin in an address that belongs to a discontinued wallet, although i have the 12 word phrase?

I am still a Rookie regarding bitcoins and therefore apologize beforehand if I might use some words wrong.

I started a bitcoin wallet through a provider some years ago and bought some bitcoin. The wallets they provided were in the cloud and the didn’t want to continue with that solution after some time so they discontinued their wallets. At that time I transferred my bitcoin to a new wallet.
This week I transferred the bitcoins back from the new wallet to the old wallet as I still had the old address written down and I thought that I could sell the bitcoin through my old provider (had forgotten about that they discontinued their wallets). I can see the public key or address which contains the bitcoin.
I have the 12 word recovery phrases for both wallets. I tried to recover my wallet with the 12 word phrase but the balance is 0. When I log on to the blockchain app i can see the old address under “imported addresses” but it says “not payable”.

Is there any way to access these bitcoin on the old address or are they burnt?

I tried the steps in I have my 12 word seed from @Abdussamad, even with different import methods but unfortunately it can’t see the balance.

Really appreciate your help.

huawei – How to access forgot-password option when you forgot the PIN of your Android Device?

I have this Huawei Nova 3i, I forgot the PIN but there’s no “forgot password” or “forgot PIN” option. I noticed that my Huawei Nova 2i doesn’t have that option too, and I’m stuck on “Try again after 24 hours”.

Normally, when I forgot my password or pin, I just click on the “Forgot Password” option, input the Google Account Password that is bound to the device, and viola, password or pin successfully reset.

Is there a workaround here to use that option?

using – Streamwriter error is written in the file it says it cannot access

I have a simple routine in a C# Console Application That writes log file entries. Today, an odd message appeared in the log.

The process cannot access the file 'C:Development-IPLLogfilesLogFile20212.txt' because it is being used by another process. 

This is bizarre – the message is written in the file it says it cannot access.

The code looks like this:

public static void WriteLog(string message)
        var requiredPath = Path.GetFullPath(Path.Combine(AppDomain.CurrentDomain.BaseDirectory, "..\..\"));

        // use Logfileyyyyww where yyyy is year & ww is week number

        DateTime dateTime = DateTime.Now;
        int year = dateTime.Year;
        int weekno = WeekNo.GetIso8601WeekOfYear(dateTime);

        string filePath = requiredPath + "\Logfiles\LogFile" + year.ToString() + weekno.ToString() + ".txt";
        using (StreamWriter writer = new StreamWriter(filePath, true))
            if (message != null)
                writer.WriteLine("Date : " + DateTime.Now.ToString() + ": " + message);

I would have thought that the Using statement would ensure that this resource is closed & disposed each time it is used.

macos – How can I troubleshoot this re-occuring prompt to give a mysterious app security access?

For a couple months now, I’ve been getting this error, periodically, a few times a day, randomly. It’s been happening ever since I’ve gotten my new Macbook (I did the thing where I connected both laptops with a USB-C and copied everything over the first time i launched the new laptop)

enter image description here

Never have I ever, on this laptop, or in my last laptop, installed this before, to my knowledge. I have googled the error and found nothing

This application also does not exist in /Applications or ~/Applications, and there’s no process that looks like this in Activity Monitor.

I also did a disk search with sudo find / -name network and there were 0 hits that looked like this could be it

I also checked login items in my Account preferences, and this doesn’t exist either.

Even if I restart my machine, it will eventually show up again

I also do not run much on my machine. Here are my login items, and besides that day-to-day I use Xcode, SourceTree, and Chrome.

In the past I have used Shadow App and Parallels, I’m thinking maybe one of those apps may have placed something in that was just sleeping, and then got backed up onto my new machine… but I still can’t find anything.

Does anybody know how I can troubleshoot this further? it’s been driving me crazy!

active directory – Why would a server in an AD environment allow Remote Registry access by FQDN, but deny and lock out accounts over IP address?

We have a situation where a software application cannot be installed because the admin account used during installation gets locked out during prerequisite checks. After some investigation, we found the cause: The prerequisite check looks at remote registry settings of other servers by RPC call to the server’s IP address rather than its FQDN, and for some reason this causes authentication to fail and lock out the account.

We validated this by doing the following:

  • When using regedit and attempting to connect to another AD server’s registry using the server’s FQDN, it connects without issue.
  • When we attempt the same connection using the server’s IP address, it prompts for new credentials.
  • All AD credentials will fail and eventually lockout the account being used, but using a Local Admin account has no problems.

We performed this test from other servers in the environment as well, but they had no issues with connecting and authenticating by IP. We compared NIC/DNS/WINS settings, but there was no notable difference. We’re at the point of cross-checking GPO settings, but we don’t expect to find anything.

We could obviously just use Local Admin accounts, but we want to understand why an RPC call using an IP address rather than the FQDN causes AD authentication to fail and lock out AD accounts. Any ideas?

Android app for live-streaming and access livestream on server

I am looking for an android app that live-streams video from an android device (over cell connection), so we can access the livestream in the cloud (using ffmpeg) and do some processing on it.

Any apps or tools that can do that?
