Bing Traffic Drop – Algo Update October 2018


In October 2018, my site had a sudden drop in traffic from (about 90%). Earlier, traffic was stable for several years.

Since then, I have contacted Bing Webmaster Support several times, but I have always received the answer that they cannot give guidelines for specific websites and have told me to follow the Bing Webmaster Guidelines – that's all.

However, a few days ago I got a reply from "High-level engineering team" with information that …. "we released an…

Using a 2018 (iso9660) live USB to copy arbitrary files (extra partition)?

In the old days, when I made a USB live installer for Ubuntu, it used to be formatted with fat32, and so I could have copied arbitrary files (say, pictures) on it, and use the same USB thumbdrive to both install Ubuntu, and to copy these files.

Unfortunately, something changed in the meantime; so now, when I use usb-creator-gtk to “flash” an Ubuntu Live CD .iso image to a USB thumbdrive, the format is iso9660, which is read-only, so I cannot copy files to the thumbdrive anymore. What is worse, I cannot even shrink this partition and make a new fat32 partition: this is what I get in gparted for the USB thumbdrive (on Ubuntu 18.04) …:


… that is, “Resize/Move” (partition) is grayed out – after “flashing” it with either mkusb (with “Install (make a boot device)” -> and either “Cloning iso file, [compressed] image file or device” or “‘Live only’ or linux installer from iso file” options) — or usb-creator-gtk. (and if I unmount /dev/sdc1, then neither gparted nor gnome-disks see any partitions here; gnome-disks simply says “No Media”)

This irritates me to no end – because the damn unresizeable iso9660 partition takes up the entirety of the USB disk (here 3.71 GB), whereas the actual usage of files for the installer is but:

$   du -hs /media/Ubuntu-MATE\ 18.04.3\ LTS\ amd64/ 1.9G    /media/Ubuntu-MATE 18.04.3 LTS amd64/ 

So, nearly 2GB goes to waste!! And I could have very well used that to copy my pictures!

Now, I’m aware that I can use mkusb to create a “Live Persistent” USB, in which case I get three partitions – one bootable with the Live CD, one for persistent storage, and one extra fat partition that can be used to copy files – the thing is, I do not want a persistent USB in this case, especially since when I run the Ubuntu installer in that case, it tells me that it wants to change two partitions: the partition on the hard drive, where I want to install Ubuntu – and some other partition, likely either the persistent or the exchange one, on the USB thumbdrive – and then I really do not feel confident in continuing the installation.

So, my question is – what other options do I have, to have a proper Live USB Ubuntu installer – and an extra partition for copying arbitrary files (without persistent storage)?

  • I’ve tried mkusb and tried to drag the slider for persistent storage to 0% – unfortunately, the minimum is 1%.

  • I’ve seen which implies you can use dd with specific byte/sector count; but then, it turns out, mkusb uses this (when not making other partitions):

< "/media/mydisk/ubuntu-mate-18.04.3-desktop-amd64.iso" pv -s 2003435520 | dd bs=4096  of=/dev/sdc 

… so even if the progress monitor is set to 100% for 1.9GB – the end result (the iso9660 partition) still takes up the entire drive.

  • I’ve seen How to convert an usb iso9660 filesystem to ext4 and the answer is:

There’s no Easy Way to do this. It will be less stressful to re-create your Kubuntu USB with “persistent storage”.

… but as I said, I do not want persistent storage.

  • I’ve seen Can I format and use the "free space" to the right of my Bootable USB stick's partition table? where the the initial answer is:

The only use for a SDC install nowadays is for making an installer drive.

… but I mean – why? Why throw away 2GB of space that I could have otherwise used? (and otherwise, the answer is “make persistent USB”, but as I said, I do not want that)

  • I’ve seen Ubuntu live usb with extra storage partition – recommends Windows software LiLi – but it does not detect my thumbdrive under Wine, even when formatted as FAT32

  • I’ve seem which recommends YUMI ( ), but that is Windows software, and it does not detect my USB thumb drive on Ubuntu 18.04 under Wine.

So, are there any options left here, so I can have an extra partition on a Ubuntu Live USB stick, without persistent storage, so I can just copy files?

Oculus Go controller selection using Unity3d 2018 now

We have a problem with controller selection on Oculus Go. We have created the scene in Unity3d 2018 and there is no utilites for controller selection.

There is old information on oficial site of utilites(version 5.6.4p2)) :

Could you help us, where we could find actual utilites for work with controller selection for Oculus Go?

Microsoft Sculpt keyboard not working with 2018 MacBook Air

I have a brand new Microsoft Sculpt keyboard and mouse, and a 2018 MacBook Air. The keyboard works only occasionally, and often stops after a few keystrokes. The behaviour is either to not work at all, severely lag, or drop most keystrokes.

The USB receiver is plugged into a hub. I’ve tried the hub and keyboard on another computer and it works perfectly, so I assume there is no issue with either of them.

I’ve also tried swapping the hub to the other port on the MacBook Air, and I face the same issue.

What else can I try?

As of the November 2018 core book updates, what changes were made in the latest printings of the PHB that aren’t noted in the errata document?

The D&D 5e core books were updated with a new printing as of November 2018 (alongside the release of the Core Rules Gift Set), as can be seen from a number of new questions and updated answers referencing these changes.

Some examples of the new questions:

  • Does casting Disintegrate on a polymorphed enemy still kill it after the 2018 errata?
  • How does the November 2018 PH errata change the usage of multiclass spell slots to cast spells?
  • Now that Simulacrums are constructs, should healing methods that work on other constructs work on them as well?
  • Are enemies with immunity to the Poisoned condition unaffected by Contagion?

Most of these changes are noted in the 2018 PHB errata PDF. However, frustratingly, not all of the changes are noted there. (For instance, the phrasing of the fighter’s Action Surge feature was simplified, and the description of the clone spell added a significant word.)

While some of these changes have been noticed by keen-eyed readers, I have not been able to find a single place documenting all these otherwise undocumented changes to the PHB.

As such, I hope the community here is able to document all these changes in a single Q&A, hopefully serving as a valuable resource to anyone looking for a proper accounting of the changes made in the November 2018 printing of the books – since the 2018 PHB errata fails to do a sufficient job of this.

As of the November 2018 core book updates, what changes were made in the latest printings of the PHB that aren’t noted in the errata document?

Given the specific focus of the question (it’s not an unrestricted list, and has clear correct answers), hopefully it should not be too broad to be answerable here.
