ModernCV - for black and white printers

The LaTeX class ModernCV does not provide a black color theme option - and printouts can therefore contain rastered colors if printed on black and white printers.

I am using the classic layout and made the following changes in .../tex/latex/modercv/moderncvthemeclassic.sty to get a black color theme.
First of all I copied the style file and edited it as normal user, then copied the file to its original location as root.

In the code section Package options -> color options I added the lines

% black

immediately after the line


Under Style definition -> color I added





immediately after the lines

HackRF on Windows 8

This technical note is based on an extract from thread. I have made several changes and added recommendations. I have experienced lot of latency using GnuRadio and HackRF on Pentoo Linux, so I wanted to try out GnuRadio on Windows.

HackRF One is a transceiver, so besides SDR capabilities, it can also transmit signals, inkluding sweeping a given range, uniform and Gaussian signals. Pentoo Linux provides the most direct access to HackRF and toolboxes. Install Pentoo Linux on a separate drive, then you can use osmocom_siggen from a terminal to transmit signals such as near-field GSM bursts, which will only be detectable within a meter.

Installation of MGWin and cmake: Download and install the following packages:
- MinGW Setup (Go to the Installer directory and download setup file)
- CMake (I am using CMake 3.2.2 and I installed it in C:\CMake, this path is important in the commands we must send in the MinGW shell)
Download and extract the packages respectively in the path C:\MinGW\msys\…
