Configuring LibSVM to Work with Matlab in Windows x64

Friday, January 14th, 2011

I wanted to explore toying with the libsvm Support Vector Machine library via Matlab in Windows x64.  I ran into several road blocks and figured I would share with the rest of our viewers at home how I overcame them.


Doubletwist with HTV Evo – Sync Failed!

Saturday, January 1st, 2011

I recently had trouble getting my HTV Evo to sync with Itunes via Doubletwist.  Every time I tried to sync in the doubletwist desktop PC application, it would report “sync failed!”.

Admin “Doug.Wasmuth” over at offered the following advice to a user with the same problem, but on their Droid 2 (as opposed to the problem for me existing on my HTC Evo):

1. using windows explorer, navigate to your connected android device SD card. Delete the folder “.doubletwist”

2. using windows explorer, navigate to the following location on your hard drive:
c->users->*you*->appdata->local->doubletwist corporation->doubletwist desktop
*the appdata folder may be hidden on your system, if so do this:
A. select organize drop down menu on windows explorer window (top left area)
B. select folder and search options
C. select view tab
D. select radio button for “Show hidden files, folders and drives”
E. select OK.
F. appdata folder will now be displayed.

3. In the doubleTwist Desktop directory found in step #2, remove all the files that end with .sqlite3
4. Also delete the file for settings.xml
5. After removing these files, restart doubletwist.
6. After restarting the databases will be rebuilt, and your syncing issue should be resolved.

I wanted to share the above as this fix worked for me!
