The instructions in a blog post for Ubuntu 14.04 (linked below) worked for me on Ubuntu 18, with one extra step after you complete the following:
I tried to run it after these steps and got this error:
cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory on pocketsphinx
So I ran the following two lines of bash:
echo 'export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib' >> ~/.bashrc
This resolved the issue, and I was able to run it as described in the article. from Baker Street Systems.

What to do when you see the following in Visual Studio? "Error TS6053 File '...node_modules/keycode/keycode.d.ts' not found."
I have learned that whenever I see this error, to simply restart Visual Studio and recompile. The error goes away. If anyone knows of an easier way to resolve this, comment below. Thanks.

Have you gotten this error? Is it sometimes accompanied by the even more rare
Failed to load view '...' because it's not a React element
If so, restart Visual Studio. These errors seem to go away when you do that. Wasn't able to find this information by Googling, so here it is for you.
Hm, that 2nd one is more intransigent than I thought. I was able to remove it by setting a breakpoint where it occurs in bundle.js, and then restarting after the breakpoint is hit. Strangely, that eliminated the error, but I'm still having issues with Visual Studio not being able to find things which are definit...

Simplicity is so nice. I just spent two hours zooming all over the web looking for a very simple HTTPClient code sample. Of dozens that I saw, all of them were overcomplicated. I knew it was just a matter of a few lines of code, and couldn't believe the poor quality and needless complexity I was seeing. The most promising alternative to HTTPClient, for example, RestSharp, currently has code samples which do not match the actual code, which is unfortunate because it does look like the best way to go. I'm not trying to debug someone else's project, I'm simply looking for the easiest way to get u...

After wrestling for a while trying to get CrowdStrike's falcon sensor app running properly in Ubuntu, we found that the online documentation is incomplete. A round trip to their support team got us this PDF (Falcon Sensor for Linux Deployment Guide Documentation Support _ Falcon), which gave us the information we needed:
Install; your version may be different, the package is available on your portal.
sudo dpkg -i falcon-sensor_4.12.0-5704_amd64.deb
Then, had to run these three commands because of a dependency issue. Ignored a few notification-type errors.
sudo apt-get install libnl1
Well this is going to be fun. Long ago, my thought experiments on dividing by zero detected a bug*, and therefore went in the direction of "you can divide by zero" and of course this left me on the outskirts of mathematics years ago. I set up a tent and made a home there, where I am quite happy. A brand new website now says the same thing, with better examples and clear reasoning. Of course, anyone worth their salt in mathematics will reject it (it's the way mathematics handles innovations around the number zero for many centuries now, so such rejection is not to be taken without... a grain of...
Update again, Sept 2021: Just found this excellent link to R. J. Lipton taking Atiyah seriously. I don't have time to dig in right now, but want to. I'm delighted to see someone doing this, as the binary response to Atiyah's insights left me feeling like more people should be looking into this, just in the hope that someone with Atiyah's solid reputation and skills might provide some clues in the legendary pursuit, even if that's all he provided. What's most exciting about this post I just found is that I'm currently studying quaternions, and I'm still curious about the link between Clifford A...

So I’m reading this book on grace, which is turning out to be one of my favorite books ever, because it so systematically details how grace operates in a way that confirms my own thoughts on the subject for so long. Yet it goes further, and provides lots of evidence to support its position. Here is one insight in the book which never occurred to me before:
While repenting over his sin with Bathsheba, David said “thou [God] desirest not sacrifice; else I would give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and contrite heart, O God, tho...

I'm new to React so I was pleased to finally discover that this task is very easy. After going through all the tutorials on how things work, and diligently searching down a decent React project template, I finally had an existing open source React dashboard that I wanted to integrate into an brand-new .NET Core project which I could then modify to my heart's desire. I thought I would need to carefully stitch things together once I had figured out where to put the files, but it turns out to be so simple! All I needed to do was delete the (nearly) empty stubs within the ClientApp folder generate...
