pathfinder 2e – Is non-physical damage calculated separately from physical damage for a single attack?

You should do both, calculate and note each type of damage, but also apply the damage as a whole.

Most of the time, it won’t make a difference, because most creatures lack damage resistances or weaknesses. But of the creatures that do resist damage, they may have resistance to one type of damage, but not the other. Take the adult red dragon as an example. It has weakness to cold 15, and no special weakness or resistance to slashing. If you hit it with your axe for 8 slashing and 4 cold, it takes the 8 slashing, and increases the cold damage by its weakness value (a total of 19 cold damage).

At the same time, if you have to make a check based on the total amount of damage dealt, then you don’t make 2 checks, one for the slashing damage and one for the cold damage, you make one check based on the total of 27.

So the damage needs to be separated when applying it to weaknesses and resistances, then apply the final result as a single instance of damage.

lg – Is there a window zoom shortcut on android 10 without using physical buttons?

On android 9 I was able to utilize the “window zoom” vision accessibility feature by triple tapping on the home button to bring it up. On android 10 I cannot find that option. The only shortcut I can find for accessibility settings is to press the volume up and power button at the same time. Is there any way to get window zoom by tapping virtual buttons on android 10?

To clarify, there is a zoom feature that magnifies the whole screen by triple tapping anywhere on the screen, but I do not like this feature as it causes apps with virtual buttons like calculators to become laggy and less responsive. I specifically want the “window zoom” feature for when I play a game with text that is too small at times and I would like to activate it in-game without using the volume and power buttons.

Edit: My phone is an LG G7 thinQ

malware – How to sanitize the Capitol after the physical breach?

On January, 6, 2021 we’ve seen a number of people storming the Capitol in Washington D.C.

As they were there inside for 1,5 hours with no supervision, and as there was no prior checking of who they are, it is possible that some of them could have come with an intention to organize an attack on the digital infrastructure of the building: planting mics, installing malware on the unlocked PCs (or even locked, as they were physically in their hands), and so on.

What is the right sequence of actions (especially given the potential state actor threat — this is not just a private house, this is the home of the U.S. Congress and government) to assure back the trust in the infrastructure of the Capitol?

iptables – cPanel route traffic through two public IPs in different physical locations

I would like to be able to route an IP I have from another virtual machine to my main cPanel server to be used.

cPanel server IP is and the other machine has and as an additional IP. How am I able to route to the cPanel server. I presume I would need to route it through from the cPanel server side?

network – What is the threat/risk difference in opening multiple ports on one physical NIC on a home server vs creating VLANs and opening ports on each VLAN?

I have a single home server with a single NIC. I intend to run numerous services — some will be internet exposed, some will not. I don’t know if I am going to run them as VMs or Docker container but it shouldn’t matter for this question.

Say I ultimately need to open port:

  • :1234 that’ll accept traffic from the internet (using a port forward on my router)
  • :6789 that’ll accept traffic just from my local network

I figure I have two options:

  1. open both ports :1234 and :6789 on eth0 of my server
  2. use VLANs:
    1. create a 802.1Q trunk on eth0 of my server then
    2. create two VLANs:
      • eth0.10 – dmz
      • eth0.20 – trust
    3. open ports on the individual VLANs:
      • :1234 on eth0.10
      • :6789 on eth0.20

The way I see it, option 2 gives me more control on my router/FW for rules for traffic between two VLANs but I am wondering how much it matters if everything is ultimately going to the same ethernet port on the same server.

So I’m wondering from a risk/threat perspective, is one better than the other?

Is file:///storage/emulated/0/ in the external physical memory card?

I already read that /sdcard/ is a symlink to the actual path of /storage/emulated/0/.

I’m an Android app developer using Apache Cordova, wherein cordova.file.externalRootDirectory is indeed file:///storage/emulated/0/.

Is it always fully reliable to save some app internal files at /storage/emulated/0/path/to/app, considering that the user might not have an external physical memory card on their phone?

usa – Does J1 Visa Transfer require physical presence in the US?

I am a visitor in the US on a J1 visa.

I want to transfer my Visa from Institution A to Institution B. Do I need to be physically present in the US so that this transfer can happen?

Suppose I leave the country, would I need to show up again within a certain time frame? By comparison, I know they only let you enter the US within the first 30 days of your J1 start (since you must report to your institution), but is there anything similar with J1 visa transfer?

(Firmware Update) My android doesn’t have a physical home button, can be forced off, or has a removable battery

I’ve heard people suggest to force the phone off with the Off button, and the sound buttons, but that doesn’t seem to work. I also can’t remove the battery. I’m not sure what to do, whether I should just let the phone die or something. I also don’t think I can take it to a phone shop or something, because I’m in Mexico on vacation rn with limited money. I’m so glad my phone decided to do this dumb shit right now. Anyway, last time I’m relying on an android ;b

mobile – How to get the physical camera sensor size on iOS / Android in Unity

I’m trying to get the physical camera sensor size on iOS and Android mobile devices for intrinsics calculations.

On Android the sensor size should be found in the SENSOR_INFO_PIXEL_ARRAY_SIZE (Android CameraCharacteristics API). However I don’t find a way to access that array via ArFoundation. I can imagine to write a plug-in for that, but I would also require a plug-in for iOS so I don’t know if that’s the right way to go.

Is there maybe another (easier) way to get the physical sensor size?
