Negating the minimal integer result in an overflow in C++

The code below compiles with a warning:

#include <iostream>
#include <limits>
#include <cstdint>

int main()
    int64_t m1 = -std::numeric_limits<int64_t>::min();
    int64_t m2 = -m1;
    std::cout << m1 << std::endl << m2 << std::endl << std::numeric_limits<int64_t>::max() << std::endl;
    return 0;

Dragging a link from a browser to a QML app

When a link is dragged from a browser on Window 10 platform it contains the page title, but they did not make it accessible in QML:

import QtQuick 2.15
import QtQuick.Controls 2.15

ApplicationWindow {
    visible: true
    width: 640
    height: 480
    title: qsTr("Scroll")
    id: root

    DropArea {
        id: dropArea;
        anchors.fill: parent
        onEntered: {
            root.color = "gray";
            drag.accept (Qt.LinkAction);

Running a Tron node on Ubuntu 20.04 WSL

Installed Java SDK:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install default-jdk
javac --version

Cloned the repository:

git clone

And found the following in wallet-cli\src\main\resources\config.conf:


The sum of signed and unsigned is unsigned in C++

#include <iostream>

template <typename T>
void PrintValue(T val)
    if constexpr (std::is_signed_v<T>)
        std::cout << "signed";
        std::cout << "unsigned";

    std::cout << std::endl << val << std::endl;

How I used OMNI USDT client on my home Windows machine

First, as a true C++ developer, I installed Ubuntu 18.04 and compiled omnicore from sources, but after that I realized that Windows omnicore-0.9.0 client can be downloaded and run directly on my Windows 10 machine.

I found omnicore-qt.exe in the unpacked files and run it:

And install Ubuntu 18.04.
