Does an object count as “being moved” when placed in a Bag of Holding before its wielder moves, and then after moving they take the object out again?


The Eldritch Knight in my game is looking for ways to make the spell magic circle be used quickly in battle, since casting it takes one minute. He came up with casting glyph of warding on his armor, choosing the Spell Glyph option. So when needed, he could trigger the glyph for quick use of the stored spell. If I understand the glyph spell correctly, this would work, but it would also greatly limit his mobility:

When you cast this spell, you inscribe a glyph that later unleashes a magical effect. You inscribe it either on a surface (such as a table or a section of floor or wall) or within an object that can be closed (such as a book, a scroll, or a treasure chest) to conceal the glyph. The glyph can cover an area no larger than 10 feet in diameter. If you choose an object, that object must remain in its place; if the object is moved more than 10 feet from where you cast this spell, the glyph is broken, and the spell ends without being triggered. […]

(emphasis mine)

Since mobility is quite useful in combat, he’s now thinking of casting the glyph on some small object, which he then places inside the party’s Bag of Holding:

This bag has an interior space considerably larger than its outside dimensions, roughly 2 feet in diameter at the mouth and 4 feet deep. […]


With this interaction, would he be able to use an action to retreive the item from the bag and then (for example) use Action Surge to trigger the glyph, instantly casting a stored spell (magic circle in this case)?

We’re curious about how to interpret this by RAW, if possible.

TTY1 prompt before Greeter

I am running Lubuntu 18.04 and on every boot just before the LightDM Greeter appears,a black screen shows the following message:

Lubuntu 18.04.3 LTS tty1 (my name prompt)

Hint:Numlock On


The cursor after login blinks for one or two times and then the Greeter appears. This screen stays for 1-2 seconds at most. Is this normal and/or does something needs to be fixed? Also note that I run an Insyde BIOS which has no option to enable numlock at boot.So every time I enter my sdb3_crypt I have to press the numlock button.

I’ve looked at this thread: Hide TTY1 login when using no "quiet splash" as GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT which is probably my case(although I am not sure if quiet splash is enabled/disabled.I never edited the grub.cfg),but the solution given disables tty1.Should I follow that answer?

Locked content before clicking CTA

We want to increase our conversion rate, so the marketing team suggests to use the pattern when information is locked before the customer clicks CTA. I actually don’t know how this pattern is called and if it’s a promising idea, so I’ll appreciate any information about your experience, some reading or research, thoughts. Is it considered as a dark pattern?

Can someone with Extra Attack do a Commander Strike BEFORE he throws a net?

A long time ago, I had asked this question about whether someone with Extra Attack can do a Commander Strike AFTER he throws a net. It got answered in the negative (can’t give something you can’t take yourself).

However, a very interesting comment had sprouted from it : can you forgo an attack to use Commander Strike BEFORE throwing a net ?

Those are the relevant rules passages…

On Extra Attacks :

Beginning at 5th level, you can attack twice, instead of once, whenever you take the Attack action on your turn.

On Nets :

When you use an action, Bonus Action, or reaction to Attack with a net, you can make only one Attack regardless of the number of attacks you can normally make.

On Commander Strikes :

When you take the Attack action on your turn, you can forgo one of your attacks and use a bonus action to direct one of your companions to strike.

Does a reaction to being hit occur before or after you take damage?

I have found this Q/A (“Does damage from Armor of Agathys take place before or after a character takes damage from an attack that hits?”) and also this Q/A (“What happens if a creature is killed between its attack and damage rolls”) both of which use the idea that getting hit by an attack and taking damage from an attack happen at different times.
Perhaps this is not the case, and getting hit by an attack and taking damage are, in fact, simultaneous events, if so, this would also answer my question.

The armor of Agathys spell states:

If a creature hits you with a melee attack while you have these hit points, the creature takes 5 cold damage.

Notably armor of Agathys does not require any sort of reaction, it simply happens simultaneously with the hit.
However, there are features, such as the Sun Soul Monk’s Sun Shield, which are reactions to being hit and not things that just happen when hit.

The Sun Soul Monk’s Sun Shield feature states:

If a creature hits you with a melee attack while this light shines, you can use your reaction to deal radiant damage to the creature.

Reactions (typically) happen after their trigger as supported by this Q/A (“Do reactions interrupt their triggers or not?”) and so I am left wondering this question:

Do reactions which trigger when you are hit by an attack occur before or after you take damage?

Memory Error While Saving Ubuntu’s Status before Closing

After trying to save the Ubuntu status before closing the operating system (which is installed on a VirtualBox machine on a host windows), here is the error message I receive resulting in the closing of ubuntu and not saving its status. I would appreciate if someone can explain this and give a solution for it.

Is it a major security risk if your client_secret gets displayed for about 30 min – 1 hour before you notice it showing and you can remove it?

Did something stupid, and asked a question on stackoverflow posted a little too much info without realizing it.

“Grub loading… Welcome to grub” banner appears before grub bootloader loads

I have a dual boot system with kali and ubuntu. One week ago I did a system update with apt upgrade but interrupted it because kali did not respond if I moved the mouse. Now, when I start my laptop, there is the banner Grub loading... Welcome to grub!. The banner was not there before the update. Actually I did not experienced problems or damages so far but it is really annoying for me. Can I remove it or is it possible that the banner is sign for a possible damage?
