sharepoint online – Unable to create sharepointlist from excel data due to json parse error

I was trying to create sharepointlist from excel data, I have around 600-ish rows and 250-ish columns. I get the error
enter image description here

Then I tried to feed the data less then 250 columns, strangely it works. I tried to examine the data exchange between browser and the cloud, but I have no clue what was happen.
What could this possibly the problem?

Clock time indicator display on center top of screen sometimes shows outdated times for a few moments Ubuntu 20.10 due to graphics issue

This is a 20.10 regression that did not happen in 20.04. It is a graphics problem, not about setting the actual time.

Sometimes if I leave my computer idle, when I come back to it the clock is out of date.

Or sometimes it shows two digits superimposed one on top of the other. This strongly indicates that it is a graphics issue.

Then if I start messing with windows/clicking around it soon updates to the correct current result.

This can be very misleading, and lead to being late for an appointment.

Is there a bug report/fix on the way, and if not what’s the best place to report it?

I’ve tried the usual troubleshooting steps (Reset NVRAM, SMC, Safe Boot), but still having the same issue.

magento2 – Correct way to block checkout step progress due to invalid postcode

I’m trying to switch the default shipping and billing address postcode validation, where instead of showing a warning if the postcode isn’t valid for the selected country, it should show an error and crucially block progression to the next step. It’s straightforward enough to switch from warn to error by extending e.g the vendor/magento/module-checkout/view/frontend/web/js/model/shipping-rates-validator.js through a mixin, however, what’s less clear is the best way to block the progression to the next checkout step if the postcode validation isn’t met.

I’ve seen some SO posts where this rule has been suggested, but it doesn’t do what i’m looking for so I’m not sure if this is applicable to my use case:

<item name="validation" xsi:type="array">
      <item name="zip-range" xsi:type="string">true</item>
</item>

I’ve also been looking at the validateShippingInformation function in vendor/magento/module-checkout/view/frontend/web/js/view/shipping.js but this seems like it would be quite a clunky approach if I have to override this function to explicitly try and block progression if the postcode isn’t validated.

Grateful if anyone has any pointers on what the best approach is here.

I overstayed my J1 VISA due to Covid last year. Applied for ESTA and was denied–what are my chances of getting a Tourist Visa?

My situation: Last year I was in the US as a J1 student. My VISA was valid until March 20th, with a 30-day Grace Period that would make my stay in the US legal until April 20th, 2020.

I had my first flight to come back home in Italy scheduled on March 15th. Unfortunately, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, I had my flight cancelled. After that happened, I managed to receive an extension from my University of around 10 days (I do not remember this info exactly, and I do not know how to check it), so that I had to necessarily leave the country by April 29th or so (Grace Period included).
The days were going by, and my flights (as I had bought two of them) would keep getting continually rescheduled or cancelled. In the meantime, I had tried asking both my home University and my host University for help, but I would not get any. I made repeated calls to the Italian Embassy and consulate, but nobody did really help me (I guess there were many people in my situation, and they did not know what to do). In the end, April 29th arrived, and I was still in the US. I called the USCIS, but they told me there was nothing they could do, as my VISA had expired, and no action could be taken during the 30-day Grace Period. I managed to come back home on June 16th. That would amount to an overstay of around 45 days.

I have now applied for an ESTA (as an Italian citizen, I am eligible for the Visa Waiver Program), but I did not get an authorization; I believe it was because I rightly stated that I had overstayed my VISA.

Question: I would then like to apply for a Tourist VISA soon. What are my chances of getting one? I am enrolled in a graduate program in my home-country, so I think this may help them understand that I have not intention of illegally staying in the country—and the only time that happened was because I had no other choice.

I am very scared I will not be able to travel to the US either for tourist reasons or for school (I would like to apply for a PhD there in a 2 year-time or so). I bet there are a lot of people in my situation. Do you know how things work in this case?

Thank you for your attention.

gmail – How can I log in to Google if the verification fails due to ‘someone is trying to access your accont’?

I have a problem on logging in to my Google account from a device on which I have never logged in. However, after the SMS verification the account log-in page always moves to an error, with the message being something like this (translated, and I forgot about the entire message).

Someone is trying to log in to your account. Please log in later or on different device.

However, no matter how I wait nor log in on different device, the login always fails with the aforementioned message. There seems no way to log in to the account and I have no device right now on which I logged in to the account.

Is it still possible to log in to the account?

20.04 – Crash due to possibly invalid encoding of clipboard content by Firefox

When copying a sequence of characters containing “ö”, “ä” or “ü” from a website in Firefox and pasting it into a KeePass2 password field, KeePass2 and/or Ubuntu crashes. The latter depends on whether it’s the “Open Database” dialog or the password field of a database entry. (No problems, when using Chrome)

When pasting into the “Open container” dialog, I get a “KeePass – Fatal Error” window, saying

A fatal error has occurred!

An extended error report has been copied to the clipboard.

Cannot access a disposed object.
Object name: 'KeePass.UI.CustomListViewEx'.

The error report reads as

When pasting into the password field of a database entry, Ubuntu crashes and the login screen appears. I found the following part in /var/log/syslog but I’m unable to make sense of it.

I’m using Ubuntu 20.04, Firefox 84.0 and KeePass 2.44.

For me it’s unclear whether it’s related to Ubuntu, Firefox or KeePass or multiple of them.

So far, I tried to compare the clipboard content with Chrome (87.0.4280.88).
When copying the lower case “ö” in the first sentence of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%96 using Firefox and Chrome I get two different results, using shell command xclip -o -noutf8 | xxd.
This returns 0xc3b6 for Chrome and 0xf6 for Firefox. 0xc3b6 is “ö” encoded with utf-8, but 0xf6 is simply the un-encoded unicode code-point for “ö”.
But I found no information, how the clipboard content should be encoded. Nor do I know if the above approach for comparing clipboard content is reasonable.

So maybe someone can tell me, where I should file a bug report.

Thank you.

Database T-Log is full due to ‘Active_transaction’. SQL server is using new T-log file first rather than old

I had a SSIS process which failed due to T-log file Full for the Stage database. T-log file max growth is limited to 510GB however only 180-200 GB of t-log file space is getting used everyday.
Even though T-log file had an enough space but it was failing with T-log FULL error. in order to troubleshoot I’ve added second T-log file (549 GB) to the new drive.
My understanding is that SQL server will use first T-log file first and once it is reached to max limit then only it will start using 2nd T-log file however I noticed that it started using new T-log file rather than old first. It does not look like normal behavior.
How does SQL server decide to use old T-log file or new T-log file first?

SQL server version:- SQL server 2012 SP4

air travel – British Airways (one-leg) flight cancelled due to Covid

This is tricky and Covid makes it even more so.

  1. Typically a refund is owed by whoever took your payment. Take a look on your credit card: If the payee is Opodo, you should primarily talk to them. If it’s BA, they are your primary target. This really depends on the contract between BA and Opodo and type of booking, so you should check.
  2. Partial refunds are difficult since the legs often don’t have individual prices. They are bought as a “package” and often a round trip is cheaper than a one way and it’s almost always much cheaper than two one-ways.
  3. In order to determine a refund, one would have to price the un-flown leg based on a round trip purchase & fare rules of the original ticket. I’m pretty sure BA could do that if they wanted, Opodo probably can’t.
  4. Even if you get a refund, you are still stuck in Delhi. The refund is unlikely to cover the price of a new one-way ticket
  5. The “normal” procedure here would be that the airline offers you an alternative return flight at no extra cost to you. The sold you transportation to Delhi and back and that’s what they are required to provide. That can backfire as well: they may offer you alternative flights, but if you are not allowed to enter the UK you can’t take them and that’s your problem and no theirs.

Your best of course action depends a bit on your specific situation. Do you want/need to go back to London? How soon, how urgent? Can you get into the UK, i.e. what’s your citizenship/visa and how does it relate to Covid related restrictions?

I am getting error due to receiver type mismatch in android app developement using kotlin

Major error in my project is between layout code (.xml) and kotlin file . Actually it is an user registration layout where user need to enter data for registration. I have checked both

as
