COMBINE MULTIPLE CSV FILES FROM THE COMMAND LINE AND RETAIN FILENAMES

For this guide we will take thousands of csv files and combine them into One single file, which will be uploaded to a database. This file will have a new column inserted, where the originating filename will be added next to the row. In scraping sites, often my output files are separated and after I clean them up I need to combine them. This is how I do it.

On my Windows 10 computer
I will copy my CSV files over to a secondary drive, leaving the originals intact.
Then I will open a command prompt as an administrator and navigate to that drive. If the files are on my H: drive will navigate by typing
H:
Then press Enter

Now I will navigate to the “dataset” folder
cd dataset

I will then list the directory contents to ensure this holds my csv files
dir

Once I see all of my csv files I will enter the following:

for /f %a in ('dir /b *.csv') do for /f "tokens=*" %b in (%a) do echo %b,%a >> combined-date.csv

Then press Enter

This will create a file called combined-04132021.csv (which is today’s date)

And I can then upload that file to my database easily

RASPBERRY PI RDP TO WINDOWS 10

From time to time I need the ability to use RDP from my Raspberry Pi, to connect to my Windows 10 computer. Here is how I have installed RDP on my Raspberry Pi.

First you need to make sure your Raspberry Pi is running on Raspbian

Next, open a Terminal
Type:
sudo bash
apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade
apt-get install xrdp remmina
Press Y when prompted
The software will install
Once it has completed, reboot your Raspberry Pi

When you are back onto your Desktop
Go to the Raspberry Menu in the top left
Select Internet
Click Remmina

Now put the settings of your Windows 10 computer in, and make sure your Windows 10 system already has RDP enabled

Connect, and you are in!

ACCESSING .ONION SITES WITHOUT TOR

While TOR is the recommended way to access the dark web, everyone and anyone can still visit without the same level of anonymity. I certainly would suggest using TOR always, however if you need to get to any .onion site from a computer without tor, you can do so by following this:

Open an internet browser (Edge, Firefox, Chrome, etc)
Type in the .onion site (ex. https://protonirockerxow.onion/rc/)
After the .onion portion of the address, add .dog (ex https://protonirockerxow.onion.dog/rc/)
Press Enter
You are now viewing RISEUP’s website on the darkweb, using a regular browser
