How to get unlimited complimentary solutions on cramster.com!

UPDATE: See the better way!

I hate doing homework and then getting it back to see that I've done some small stupid mistake so to prevent this it's always a good idea to check solutions.  If you can't find a solution manual for your book, Cramster.com will most likely have what you need.

If you've never used Cramster before, the first solution you'll get is complementary.

Sadly, they only give you one freebie, but it's really easy to get around this (only for odd numbered solutions, sorry).  If you try to get another solution you see this.


Cramster uses a cookie to track your visits and only allows you to have a free solution if you've never had one before.  So all we need to do is remove this cookie and wala!

In firefox choose Edit -> Preferences then click the privacy tab and finally remove individual cookies.


Search "cramster" and click Remove Cookie for all of the results from cramster.com.


When your done it will look like this:

Now close and choose the next problem you want (or refresh the page). Cramster feels generous again!  Simply repeat for each odd solution you need.  Have fun enjoying lots of complimentary solutions on Cramster.com!



And if you're wondering, yes a similar method to this works on lots of other websites. It's good to be a cookie monster sometimes :p

Kivy vs React-Native for building cross platform mobile apps

I've built three apps now using Kivy and one with React-Native, just wanted to share my thoughts on both.

Just a warning, I am strongly biased towards python and this is all based on opinion and experience and is thus worth what you pay for it. I don't claim to be an expert in either of these, just have worked with each for several months.  If something is incorrect I'd love to hear advice.

Kivy

Pros:
Nice to be able to run natively on the desktop WITHOUT a simulatorPython is easy to work withUse (almost) any python libraryVery easy to create custom widgetsKivy properties and data binding just work. Way nicer than React's "state" / flux / redux whatever you want to call it (stupid?). Native interfaces (pyjnius) and (pyobjc)Runs and feels pretty smooth Cons:Default widget toolkit looks like Android 4.4. Requiring you use your own widgets or a theming kit like KivyMD if styling bothers youCreating dynamic widgets declaratively is not yet s…

Control Systems in Python - Part 1 - Bode and Step Response

I hate matlab with passion, yet sadly, nearly everyone uses it.  I'm a fan of Python and open source stuff so here's a simple article on how to do some common control systems stuff in Python.

First we need to make sure the environment is setup.
Install IPython (or you can use any other python shell, but a unicode supported shell is preferred)Install python-control (numpy, scipy)Install sympy
These should do if your on Ubuntu/debian:

sudo apt-get install python-sympy python-numpy python-scipy python-matplotlib ipython
Then you need to install python control, see How to download and install python-control
Intro to using SympyOpen ipython and run the following:

import sympy from sympy import * sympy.init_printing() s = Symbol('s')

Now we can do things like define transfer functions using the symbolic variable s.


We can expand the bottom using the .simplify() method

and we can do something more complex like...
which is really nice because it does all the multiplication for us... and it’…
