First time role playing, how to I address this problem?

So I am brand new the role playing as I am really shy and normally don’t like to tell my stories to other. I am role-playing with my friend and her siblings and I have a problem. I have added my character into an already existing, huge lore, place. And my friend is trying to make my character do things that would not fit my narrative. For example my character has a boyfriend and this guy is very specific to her background as they are kinda tied together by fate through different lives. Every time my OC dies, she will meet her boyfriend in the next universe, her could be her lover, friend, or enemy. My friend forced me to break up with the OC’s boyfriend and now is trying to forcefully get my OC to date a girl. I told her this character is strictly heterosexual and honestly is really mainly attracted to her boyfriend but my friend will not listen. I have other OCs who are LGBTQA+, but she is so admit on the straight one. I don’t want to cause trouble but they are constantly forcing my OC to do things out of character that I have created because she is my character. And I don’t know what to do? I don’t want to be mean or cause drama but I am stuck!

Address finder for website, cheap/budget options for the UK

Hi All,

This is my first post and I have no web design or HTML experience so please excuse the naive nature of this question. I'm building a website with my friend and we require a postcode or address finder for the UK (initially). It's a very common functionality on many different websites but on researching the topic, I was surprised most of the APIs like, Adressian, getaddress – charge by number of searches made. Now don't get me wrong, they're entitled to charge for these…

How to send emails from any address with postfix? [closed]

I’m very familiar with PHP, and I used to use the mail function. I really want to be able to use it on my Raspberry Pi 4 apache2 server. I have php installed, and the mail function always returns true. But it never makes it. It’s not any error with the code or my spam folder because I’m using the same script I used to and there haven’t been any updates to my provider. Anyway, I know I need to install postfix, but I don’t know how. PLEASE READ ON BEFORE GIVING SOME TUTORIAL LINK. Anyway, I need to set it up so that I can send email over the internet AND from any address. Thanks in advance!

Is there any compiler IR paradigms other than Three Address Code and Static Single Assignment (SSA) Form?

Specifically, I have tried boiling down the operations of a VM into the smallest possible standardized units and arrived at this:

allocate_stack(size) fetch(offset_from_stack_pointer) store(offset_from_stack_pointer) call(index) 

So you might have:

allocate_stack 6 fetch -2 store 0 fetch -1 store 1 call 72 

Basically, the allocate_stack would tell you how much space you are allocating for fields in the stack. Then the fetch would queue up something relative to the stack to be stored (or fetch_a would fetch an absolute address). Then store would store the fetched value in the space relative to the stack (or store_a for absolute position). And finally, call <index> would call that specific function.

So basically these are 2-address codes instead of 3-address codes. Does anything like this exist out there where they’ve expanded upon the idea to find compiler optimizations and such, like 3-address-code and SSA form? If not like this, does anything else exist outside of 3-address-code and SSA form?

difference between “addressable” and “address” in memory?

I’m struggle on this practice question from this site….

Calculate the number of bits required in the address for memory having size of 16 GB. Assume the memory is 4-byte addressable.

MY QUESTION IS: what is the difference between an "address" and "the memory is 4 byte addressable"?

I understand an address would be its location in memory that is represented by bits, such as 2^n, where n is the number of bits in the address. But I’m confused about addressable in this question and how that’s different than address

2^n * 4 bytes = 2^34 The solution is 32 bits

Address issue of matrices in C [closed]

A matrix X [-15 . . . 10, 15 . . . 40] is given.Each memory address holds 1 byte of memoryFind the address of X[10][40].

Note: The notation of the matrix is rather orthodox and confusing. It says that these are the indices of the matrix. I have come across comments that this does not look like a matrix. But I came across this and I can assure hundreds of other people also do, so it will be helpful to clear this for once and for all. The simple question here is if the X[10][40] will be accessible or not as from the indices we get that there are 26 rows and 26 columns. The calculation for the number of rows in done below. My confusion is if said in one line is that as there are 26 rows and 26 columns, then [1][26] will occupy one byte of memory.In the lieu of that will [1][27] also hold 1 byte of memory. Because I haven’t declared it to have 1 byte of memory. And following this will [10][40] also hold 1 byte of memory.I hope my question is now clear. However, if any doubt is still there,I would be more than happy to address it.:).

Lr = Lower limit of row/start row index of a matrix, if not given assume 0 (zero)

Lc = Lower limit of column/start column index of a matrix, if not given assume 0 (zero)

If the beginning location is 1500 determine the location of X[10][40] for both row-major and column-major order.

Every element of the matrix requires 1 byte of storage.

The question is solved by this ugly looking formula.

Number or rows say M = (Ur – Lr) + 1

Number or columns say N = (Uc – Lc) + 1

Row Major Wise Calculation:

Address of A [ I ][ J ] = B + W * [ N * ( I – Lr ) + ( J – Lc ) ]

Column Major Wise Calculation :

Address of A [ I ][ J ] = B + W * [ ( I – Lr ) + M * ( J – Lc ) ]

B = Base address

I = Row subscript of the element whose address is to be found

J = Column subscript of the element whose address is to be found

W = Storage Size of one element stored in the array (in byte)

Lr = Lower limit of row/start row index of a matrix, if not given assume 0 (zero)

Lc = Lower limit of column/start column index of a matrix, if not given assume 0 (zero)

M = Number of rows of the given matrix

N = Number of columns of the given matrix

The question is [10][40] valid or out of bounds here.Can we calculate its address?

Here i proceeded like this:

For X[10][40]:

Row-major:1500+1* [26 * (10 – (-15))) + (40 – 15)]=2175

Column-major:1500 + 1 * [(10– (-15)) + 26 * (40 – 15)]=2175

How to ban IP address behind NAT

I am creating WebSocket server with rust and tokio and I want to prevent DDos attacks and spams.

So I thought of creating HashMap and inserting IP address which i suspect are trying to do spamming or DDos Attack but will this also ban other innocent users sharing same NAT network with attacker ?

If I ban IP address and port combination, will the attacker just use other port?

How to mask a geographic IP address on corporate VPN [duplicate]

My wife is working remote due to COVID for a company that has a policy in place to not work from outside of California for an extended period of time. She logs in via a corporate VPN using our home WiFi network.

We are moving from LA to Phoenix had she would like to hang on to her job until COVID is over.

Are there any options to mask the IP address of our Phoenix ISP? I have read that one solution is the use of a VPN, but her company is already using one for her to log into her corporate environment. She has no admin access to her laptop.
