networking – System resume kills wpa_supplicant

Using debian distros for a few years. All distros from the last few years seem to share a wierd wpa_supplicant issue. Has anyone else attempted to solve/understand this issue during sleep/resume?

When system goes to sleep, upon resuming wpa_supplicant stops working. Tried the following to get wpa_supplicant to allow connection to networks….

# service wicd stop
# wpa_action wlan0 reload
sudo dhcpcd --release wlan0
sudo iwconfig wlan0 essid off
#sudo iwconfig wlan0 ap off
#service network-manager stop
#service networking stop
# ifconfig wlan0 down
#ip link set wlan0 down
#rfkill unblock all
service network-manager status | grep 'active'

no network connections active

Then restart EVERYTHING -> still wpa_supplicant reports “error bad password” via nmcli and/or wicd

restart computer -> everything works again !

What causes this wpa_supplicant error? What else interacts with wpa_supplicant establishing connections – that was not listed above?

man in the middle – (kali linux) arp poisoning kills all network activity

I have tried to perform a man in the middle attack on my own smartphone in my home network. Whether i use Ettercap, arpspoof with dsniff. none of them work. i am using kali linux as a virtual machine guest in my windows 7 host.
note that i have bridged network on, ”’ip_forward=1”’, and network interface eth0 since i have a bridged network. also when I run the chk_poison plugin in ettercap it says “no poisoning at all :(“é
Am I doing something wrong? Did I miss something?
thanks 🙂

If heart disease kills more people than corona virus every day, why doesn't anyone complain?

Millions of dollars flow into heart research every month. But it's the silent killer and not an infectious disease like COVID-19.

"In recent years, public funding for cardiovascular research has exceeded $ 2 billion annually, more than for other diseases on the country's top killers list, according to the NIH. Jan 28, 2014"

Heart disease kills 650,000 a year. Cancer kills 600,000. Stroke 140,000. Regular pneumonia 50,000 Are we doing too much with Corona?

Can you catch any of the diseases you mentioned?

If your relative has heart disease or cancer, you will get them if they cough in your direction.

Hospitals cannot cope with the influx of patients who urgently need respiratory care due to this disease. If nothing is done to slow the spread, ALL hospitals across the country (and in every country) are overcrowded with patients they cannot treat because they do not have the space, equipment, or staff to care for them Anyone who would catch it and who would be sick enough to need urgent help.

It's not really about the number of deaths. It is about the number of people who catch it and who need urgent medical help to recover.

GET INFORMED and don't become part of the problem.

The U.S. government never had to send military medical vessels to a location to help with an excess of patients with heart disease or cancer.

Iranian missile kills everyone … What is the probability that the rocket will be paid for by Obama dollars in cash pallets?

None because the cash pallets had no Obama dollars. They had Mohammad Reza Pahlavi dollars. The money wasn't America's. It was money that Iran used to try to pay planes from the United States, but it was returned to them. That was a good decision because the planes could have killed more than 150 people.

Role playing – How can you avoid discontent among players when one player kills the characters of the other?

I recently had an idea for a oneshot game where I work with a player to make things more interesting. My plan is to make it look like an old-fashioned dungeon run. The group, which will consist of already known heroes, is hired by a local nobleman, meets in a tavern and cleans up the dungeon. The enemy they are to eliminate is a powerful necromancer cult.

However, I plan to take the party wizard aside and suggest that he play the wrong character. In fact, he is a powerful and ambitious member of the cult of necromancers. His master proposed to lure well-known heroes to turn them into powerful minions. The magician likes the idea, but sees it as a great opportunity to kill his master to lead the cult.

I intend to give the wizard an item that can be used to revive a killed party member as his servant. I hope this creates a setup where the wizard, while the group is performing a regular dungeon run, will have to balance the weakening and support of the group and cult while planning to murder a group member to win an ally. This ally would know what's really going on and become my second co-worker.

I want to let things play from there, either that the group discovers the plot and kills the wizard or that the wizard kills his master and makes the group his puppets. These are results that are definitely interesting.

However, I have heard many bad stories about PvP in Pen & Paper games. People who make friends because of murdered characters and fierce arguments. While there were PvP in groups with these people, no one ever got killed. How can I prevent the players from annoying each other if it turns out that some want to kill the group? Are my worries unfounded? Or is the whole adventure a bad idea?

Note: I don't know this SE very well, so I would appreciate help with the tags

iphone – What kills my battery?

I have an iPhone XS with iOS 13.2.3 when I took it out of the box running iOS 12, and I registered for iOS 13 on Beta 6 and I kept updating the beta when they came out , My battery is now 90% healthy, which means excessive wear for 7 months. My loading habits are as follows:

  • One hour in the morning via CarPlay (after a night of just over 20%)
  • One hour in the afternoon via CarPlay (usually between 30% and 70% due to daily use)
  • Almost never charged overnight (except once or twice, but definitely nothing repetitive)
  • Battery almost never left completely empty (as above except once or twice)
  • For two or three months I used a cordless charger in the morning, and occasionally when I use the phone a little bit more
  • I hardly play games on the phone (say, once or twice a month, while I charge.) The phone heats up more than usual, but it seems normal to me)
  • I use my phone for navigation, call, social media, photo, and messaging apps. Some apps do background work to upload photos. iOS backup on iCloud is disabled (although I secure on iTunes weekly or more frequently)
  • I do not expose my phone to extreme temperature fluctuations
  • The phone is on for an average of 30 hours a week
  • I'm using the original cable and two other cables I bought from Amazon and supposedly made for the iPhone: one is Amazon Basics and the other is third-party. However, I charge the phone most frequently while using CarPlay. This is done with the original, which is included. These two cables are used almost exclusively on weekends.

I should mention that I had an update to iOS 13.2.2 over a period of about two weeks, when an error occurred that drained the battery faster than normal, dropped by 30% overnight in airplane mode, which in iOS 13.2.3 has been resolved)

I do not think this pattern of wear is normal. Is there anything in the above list (which seems normal to me) that destroys my battery?
