Atom vs Sublime Text va Visual Studio Code Performance Test

I have been working with Sublime Text for around 3 years, and as a DevOps Engineer have no issues with it. I tried GitHub's Atom one or two year ago and I was pleasantly impressed by its active community. The reason I sticked with Sublime Text was performance - Atom was slow, even after when Atom 1.0 was released.

These days, I searched "Sublime Text vs Atom", trying to see if Atom has significant improvement when I found Microsoft's Visual Studio Code. Visual Studio is also built using Web Technology like Atom, but a lot of reviewers said it is faster than anything else. So I tested and found out their performance difference today.

Atom and Visual Studio Code still perform significantly worse compared to Sublime Text, for example launching and Opening windows are seconds slower which it is noticeable and they occupied much more RAM.

Visual Studio Code has a big advantages over Atom in opening files and RAM usage. It could handle larger files and handle it faster than Atom. When I tested the 2.6MB file, Visual Studio Code opened the file within one second while Atom took more than two seconds.

Sublime Text is still the speedy king, Visual Studio Code second and Atom is the last.

[SOLVED] No readable photos, videos, or folders found - Windows 10 - Photos App

I tried today Windows 10 Photos App as a replacement for Google's Picasa and immediate stumbled upon the following error: Windows 10, Photos app, No readable photos, videos, or folders found. I've run Windows app troubleshooter and no change Photos app still says no readable content when there are clearly pictures and videos in the folder.

No readable photos, videos, or folders found, Windows 10, Photo App

Luckily for me I found one folder that showed up the content in Windows 10 Photo app and after comparing the folder permission I noticed that The Photos app on Windows 10 uses the System account to access the folders!

So in order to fix No readable photos, videos, or folders found error grant the user at least read access to your folder and files will show.

Right click the folder, select Properties. Select the Security tab, click on the Add... button, type SYSTEM into the Enter the object names to select (examples): box, and click OK. Then click Apply or OK on the Permissions for [folder name] box, and OK on the [folder name] Properties box. Set your folder how you normally would in the app and enjoy the album updates.

I think it is a poor design choice, by Microsoft but at least it works for me.

ARRIS SURFboard SB6141 End Of Life

There is absolutely nothing wrong with my ARRIS SURFboard SB6141, but today after an another Comcast outage in my area, my Blast! 150Mbps internet service came back in a new mode. I was having excruciatingly slow internet speed on Comcast. After a short chat with Comcast representative I figured out that SB6141 does not support their new standard. After checking for a list of currently approved DOCSIS 3.0 cable modems I ordered ARRIS SURFboard SBG6400. For now I hope for easy install and fast speed. Will I be able to plugged right in and would it work perfectly?

SourceTree 2.2 Major Release - DO NOT UPGRADE

SourceTree 2.2 is not stable at all. DO NOT update to the latest version of SourceTree. I guess this release needed a bit more time in the oven. May give GitKraken a proper look now.

Atlassian really needs to work on its validation practices. The last few HipChat client updates have been disasters as well.

No Ranging Response received - T3 time-out SOLVED

No Ranging Response received - T3 time-out, I have had this error for the past few weeks looking through the event logs in my Motorola SB6141 and saw this message is popping in the logs several times every day. Apparently this error occurs when the upstream connectivity is lost between my cable modem and the Xfinity Comcast server. Checking my modem signal levels I have found the following data

Downstream Power Level
12 dBmV 13 dBmV 11 dBmV 10 dBmV 10 dBmV 11 dBmV 11 dBmV 12 dBmV

Downstream Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR)
38 dB 37 dB 37 dB 37 dB 37 dB 38 dB 37 dB 38 dB

Upstream Power Level 42 dBmV 43 dBmV 42 dBmV 41 dBmV

The downstream power is on the high side, and -7dBmV to +7dBmV is the ideal range for cable modem, so I have found 2 way signal splitter and added to the the line leading to the modem hoping that extra attenuation will knock that power down. And it worked, the downstream power level went down. For the last few days my Xfinity Comcast connection works like a charm and there is no No Ranging Response received - T3 time-out in the log files.
