Sick and Tired of Clueless, Unimaginative and/or Boring Content Writers? YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!

I'm going to try and make this short and sweet boys and girls. Not on purpose, mind you, but because I'd already typed out a much lengthier, much more in-depth version of the following but thanks to one of those random, blue-screened, automatic reboot error… things… alas, it was lost. It was lost forever.

Thanks to being a steadfast believer in many things happening for a reason, I've decided to tighten up the overall gist of what I'm going to be saying up in here. All…

What prevents malicious servers from spoofing mail transfer agents and/or mail delivery agents?

An email system typically consists of multiple agents:

  • Mail user agent (MUA)
  • Mail submission agent (MSA)
  • Mail tranfer agent (MTA)
  • Mail delivery agent (MDA)

Mail agent netword

Evidently the ‘middlemen’ of this system are a spoofing risk. (Technically the endpoints could also be a spoof risk, but let’s assume in this case that the end users are genuine.)

What methods are used/can be used to protect against these ‘middlemen’ agents being spoofed?

I’ve thought about it myself and the only answer I can come up with is that DNS might provide some sort of limited authentication, though DNS spoofing would still be a risk.

Do encumbered players suffer any penalties when exploring and/or traveling?

The current 5e campaign I’m running uses the encumbrance variance rules and demands a lot of travel and resource management on the part of the players.

This brought up questions about penalties when traveling while encumbered/heavily encumbered (especially from players with lower strength scores)…

It is stated in the PHB that being encumbered reduces a player’s movement in combat while being heavily encumbered drops movement further, and negatively affects attack rolls, ability checks, as well as certain saving rolls. That is clear enough! The DMG adds:

The difference between walking speeds can be significant during combat, but during an overland journey, the difference vanishes as travelers pause to catch their breath, the faster ones wait for the slower ones, and one traveler’s quickness is matched by another traveler’s endurance.

So, it appears, according to RAW, that even a heavily encumbered party’s travel speed is not affected when exploring or traveling, nor do they suffer any other penalties associated with travel (e.g. reduced distance covered/marching time, increased risk of exhaustion, etc.). We aren’t missing anything obvious?

Sharing a OneDrive and/or sharepoint folders using “Sharing Link” Vs adding user directly to the Folder permission

I am planning to move some folders from a user’s OneDrive site to a SharePoint document library. to move the files and folders from OneDrive to SharePoint online i will use the “Copy To” and/or “Move To” options. but for the permission i am planning to do the map manually. But on some OneDrive folders i found that they have been shared using sharing link + adding users directly to the folder, here is an example (where 7 users have been added to the folder permission, while one user is added using sharing link):-

enter image description here

and when i checked the permission for a file inside the above folder, i found the following permission settings, which mentioned that the file inherits the permission from its parent folder (the above permission), and the 7 users are showing inside the file permission settings, as follow:-

enter image description here

So the file got all the 7 users from the parent folder , but excluding the user who is granted access to the parent folder using sharing link. so my question will the user who has been granted access to the parent folder using sharing link, can access the file? because the child permission setting is confusing, as it is saying that it inherit the permission from the parent folder, but it does not include the user who can access the parent folder suing sharing link.. so not sure how i need to map this to the sharepoint folder? should i grant the user who can access the parent folder using sharing link, access to the file inside the folder?


Is duplicating, deleting, pushing, and/or an object to/between lists a code smell?

I’m thinking about a structure like this.

cardGame:     players:         - john:             hand:                 - card:                     id: 1                     suit: diamond                     number: 7     deck:         - id: 32           suit: spade           number: 3 

And then, to draw a card there would be a drawCard(cardGame, john) that pops the card from the deck and appends it to to john.hand. And then say, if John were to place the card at the bottom of the deck, there would be a sequence of object manipulations, array deletions, etc.

But looking at this, I see risk of accidentally duplicating a card object or running into deep vs. shallow copy issues… is it better to maintain a “flat” structure that is almost like a normalized database table? Ex:

cardGame:     deck:         - id: 1           suit: diamond           number: 7           heldPlayer: john         - id: 32           suit: spade           number: 3           heldPlayer: null 

And in this case, it would be easy for players to swap cards or remove from hands without making any structural changes, though it may be harder to deal with deck positionality? (This could be a failure of imagination on my part)

Intuitively I’d go with the first structure… but I’m not sure what would be better from a stability perspective.
