  1. Put the the 3-wire program connector into the remote
  2. Hold a metal object to the 3 pins of the program connector to short them
  3. Push a button: Now that button has been cleared.
  4. Remote the metal object from the 3 pins of the program connector
  5. Push the same button: If it has been cleared, your gate/garage won’t move

`ll header` in `martian source` is the Data Link Layer: 2 MAC addresses

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/06/03

The ll headerĀ field in a martian sourceĀ message on linux is about theĀ [WayBack]Ā Ethernet frame – Wikipedia: Data Link Layer.

The first 6 hex digits are the source MAC address, the next are the destination MAC address:

May 10 08:59:24 linux kernel: IPv4: martian source 255.255.255.255 from 192.168.17.44, on dev eth1
May 10 08:59:24 linux kernel: ll header: 00000000: ff ff ff ff ff ff 00 0c 29 f7 0f fe 08 00 ........).....

In the above example:

  • Destination = MACĀ ff ff ff ff ff ffĀ (broadcast, which corresponds with IPv4 target 255.255.255.255)
  • Source = MACĀ 00 0c 29 f7 0f feĀ (specific, which I could verify after checking out the machine having IPv4Ā 192.168.17.44)
  • EtherType Ā 08 00Ā (IPv4)

Some sources indicate it is a martian, as 255.255.255.255 is never a valid IP address, butĀ [WayBack] Martian packet – Wikipedia: IPv4Ā disagrees.

keyboard – How to add a line break in a cell in Excel for Mac – Ask Different

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/06/03

What key combination do I have to press to create a line break in a cell in Excel for Mac 2011? The Windows combination of Alt+Enter does not work on the Mac.

Source: [WayBack]Ā keyboard – How to add a line break in a cell in Excel for Mac – Ask Different

The answer depends on the Excel for Mac OS X version you are using.

Excel 2015 is simple (thanks esham): use Option+Enter.

In older Excel <= 2011 (thanksĀ nwinkler), use Command+Option+Enter or Control+Option+Enter.

Some users report the also need the FnĀ key in addition to the above modifiers.

PS: Later I found out thatĀ [WayBack] Beckism.com: Use a linebreak in Excel on Mac also shows the Excel <= 2011 solution Control+Option+ReturnĀ (note that ReturnĀ is the same key as Enter).
