I received a new computer last week but cannot get Task Scheduler to successfully run a VBS script.  It says it is running but the spreadsheets are not updating.  I created a new script to open Notepad and type a few words and Task Scheduler says it is running, ran successfully, but it did not..Notepad never opened.

I can manually run both scripts and they work fine.  Spreadsheets get updated and Notepad opens, types a few words, and stays open until I close Notepad.

My company's computer support has not been able to help at this time and I am currently waiting for the next level of help.  However, that could be more than a week until someone contacts me.

Attached are some screen shots I hope will help, with some identifying text blacked out with a description of what info was there.

Would any of you have any ideas as to why the scripts work when I double click on them manually to get them to run but Task Scheduler will not successfully get them to run, even though it says they are running?

I have written the function below. It works, but is slow. On my windows 7 R installation, what should I do to get this function working with the parallel library? Or is there some other obvious performance improvement I could do?

I followed the answer which led me to try vectorising but the improvement is minimal. Given I have another 23 cores and 50GB of RAM available I suspect the biggest improvement would be parallel processing. Albeit tricky to do on my Windows OS and using my newly learnt R skills.

I recently procured Visual Studio 2017 professional and trying to hands on with R tools.
I created a new R project and created a custom (user defined) function.  The function generates
4 sub-graphs with the function par(mfrow=c(2,2)) in one main graph
My function is working well with regular R software version 3.4.
When I trying the same function in R tools in Visual Studio 2017, I am getting an error
Error in plot.new() : figure margins too large
What could be the problem. Any solutions for rectification?
I am building a 2-tier Microsoft PKI infrastructure.
I have 1 off-line root CA and 2 issuing CA r running Windows server 2012 R2.  I want to have 1 active issuing CA an and the 2nd CA as a standby in a disaster recovery site.
How should I configure the CDP and AIA LOCATION?  Do I need a shared location where both CA’s can access the CRL information or can  I make the CDP and AIA  location local to the  issuing CA and rely on  a backup/restore  if I need to activate the 2nd  CA in DR.

Hi Everyone - thanks in advance for taking a look and helping.

I'm trying to build a UDF in VBA that handles cohort math for digital media biz.

It takes as input several 1d arrays, builds a 3d array, then sums along two dimensions of that built array to output a 1d array.

Here's what I wrote in R, which I need to translate into VBA.

maus <- function(
) {
  n <- length(nreach)
  mau.array <- array(rep(0, n * n * n), dim = c(n, n, n))
  for (i in seq(n)) {
    for (j in seq(n)) {
      for (k in seq(n)) {
        if (!(i <= (k - j + 1))) {
        mau.array[i, j, k] <-
          nreach[i] * 
          conversion[i] *
            (seasonal[((i + j) %% ds) + 1] * dispersion[j]) /
                c(seasonal[(((max(i, j) - 1) %% ds) + 1) : ds], rep(seasonal, floor(dl / ds)))[1 : dl] *
                dispersion[1 : dl]
          ) *
          retention[k - i - j + 2]

maus <- colSums(colSums(mau.array))

Open in new window

Also attached is a sample workbook where I've tried to start this effort so you can see how I would use the function in Excel.  

I don't know VBA so would appreciate help translating the function I wrote in R into Excel VBA.  

Thank you in advance I really appreciate the help.

I fairly new in R, I am doing some simple visualization in shiny app, I am trying to flip a bar chart downward using  scale_y_reverse() , it works well when I run my code in R console, but when I run it in shiny it does not flip the bar chart, below is my code in the server part:

output$trendbarPlot <- renderPlotly({
                              mydat <- mydatCopy %>% filter(Country ==input$Country)

attacksbarplot = ggplot(data=mydat,aes(x=as.factor(Year))) + geom_bar() + theme_bw(base_size=35) + xlab("") + ylab("") + theme(axis.text.x = element_blank(), axis.ticks=element_blank(),panel.grid.major=element_blank(),panel.grid.minor=element_blank(),panel.border=element_blank())  + scale_y_reverse()

attacksbarplotnol = ggplot(data=mydat,aes(x=as.factor(Year))) + geom_bar() + theme_bw(base_size=15) + xlab("") + ylab("") + theme(axis.text.x = element_blank(), axis.text.y = element_blank(), axis.ticks=element_blank(),panel.grid.major=element_blank(),panel.grid.minor=element_blank(),panel.border=element_blank()) +  scale_y_reverse()

attached file has the required flipped bar chart in shiny.

Does anyone knows how can I solve this issue?
My data:

Gage_number Latitude    Longitude   Date    Gage_1  Gage_2  Gage_3

1   35.02   -80.84  1/1/2002    0.23    0   0.7
2   35.03   -81.04  1/2/2002    0   0   0.2
3   35.06   -80.81  1/3/2002    3.2 2.1 0.1
This is just a subset of data. I around 50 gauge stations. I want to find spatial auto correction between my gauge stations for rain fall. Based on distance between them. I have created my distance matrix. But I don’t want to use any library in R. I want to do all steps in a function.

loc <- read.table("rain_data.txt",header=TRUE,fill=TRUE)  
gauge.dists <- as.matrix(dist(cbind(loc$Latitude, loc$Latitude))) #distance matrix
Now since distance between gauges is not uniform. I want to use a certain bin size to decide about distance lags.


If the distance between guage pair 1-2 is 1 meter then assign a distance lag of 1 and so on So Lag 1=intergage dist=1 meter. So Lag 5=intergage dist=5 meter After creating that matrix I will find autocorrelation between gauge pairs.

so for lag 1 intergage dist=1 for lag 5 intergage dist=5

Gage pair   date    RainA   RainB       Gage pair   date    RainA   RainB

1-2 1/1/2002    0.23    0       1-3 1/1/2002    0.23    0.7
1-2 1/2/2002    0   0       1-3 1/2/2002    0   0.2
1-2 1/3/2002    3.2 2.1     1-3 1/3/2002    3.2 0.1
I have a hard time translating it into loop or a function. Any ideas?
I'm looking for an experienced Mac OS X kernel programmer. If are one, or if you know of one, please drop me a message.

Here are the basic details of the project:
- Build a driver to detect if the machine is connected to my proxy.
- If not, block all access to the Internet (disable the network adapter?).
- It should be tamper proof

Currently, a gross estimate will suffice.

p.s. We currently employ a Widows solution for the above, now we're looking to expand to Mac OS X too.
Using Chiro8000 version and the program shut down today and will not open.  When I try to open the program, I get a message stating:   Root element is missing

I am bit new to R so I am not sure if this is possible or if its more difficult than I am assuming.

Objective: I want to find the correlation between Diagnosis codes. If patient #1 has condition X what the likelihood he will at some point also have condition Y as well.

Here is what I have:
136,337 Unique patient IDs (74,527 Female, 61,810 Male)
34,442 Unique Diagnosis that exists in my population
7,777,728 Unique observations

So my 2 questions are:
1. How should I layout my Table for R?
Right now I have the table columns as :
ID, SEX, Diagnosis

2. What should my Rscript look like in order to create correlation coefficients between all my diagnosis codes.  

FYI: Yes I also have a time stamp per diagnosis code but adding it now would be to adding more confusion to the confusion I already have.
hello guys iam working on making a software to connect to sabre API s from my program
but when I try to connect i have authorization issue i want to know how to connect to a Sabre API using Vb.net
--fact :: Integer -> Integer 
fact 0 = 1
fact n = n * fact (n-1)

func x i  = ( x^oddTerm / (fact oddTerm))    --Have to add fromIntegral here before (fact oddTerm)
                 where oddTerm = 2*i - 1

Open in new window

If I don't add fromIntegral in the place commented above, ghci would give me this error message while running func
    • Ambiguous type variable ‘a0’ arising from a use of ‘it’
      prevents the constraint ‘(Fractional a0)’ from being solved.
      Probable fix: use a type annotation to specify what ‘a0’ should be.
      These potential instances exist:
        instance Fractional Double -- Defined in ‘GHC.Float’
        instance Fractional Float -- Defined in ‘GHC.Float’
        ...plus one instance involving out-of-scope types
        (use -fprint-potential-instances to see them all)
    • In the first argument of ‘print’, namely ‘it’
      In a stmt of an interactive GHCi command: print it

Open in new window

And without adding fromIntegral, if I uncomment the first line, it would not even compile.
Any answer would be much appreciated.
So I would like to make this program read a user inputted matrix instead of the one that is provided in the main function. Also, the limit to the 2d matrix should be more than 9, but no more than about 100 and should also be user defined.

The main function purpose that I had in mind would be something like:
int main(){
    int graph[V][V];
  printf("Enter number of towns: ");
  scanf("%d", V);
  printf("Enter distance matrix");
  scanf("%d", graph[V][V]);
  dijkstra(graph, 0);
return 0;}

which is giving me a great headache trying to write.. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Modern healthcare requires a modern cloud. View this brief video to understand how the Concerto Cloud for Healthcare can help your organization.

I work for the New Zealand Fire Service, and part of my role is to keep situational awareness over the region I cover.  I had the idea of making an automated tool that constantly monitored parameters and would give a notification when they exceed a threshold.  For instance, wind speeds, river levels, rain accumulation, traffic updates, temperature, relative humidity... many things!

Most of these things are available through websites, but do require me to physically look at them.  I had created a trial of my idea in Excel - it would open instances of IE and scrape the HTML on the page to retrieve certain numbers. I could tell it to check every 15 minutes or hour or whatever is suitable.

However, it doesn't seem like Excel would be a suitable platform to fully develop this... and finding various bits of HTML out of a page is prone to breaking, but may be my only option unless there is some kind of database access for these numbers.

Has anyone got any ideas on the best way I can make my idea happen? I'm assuming there would be something web-based I could do that could be doing something similar?
