What degree of immortality has metahumanity achieved in the Shadowrun canon?

Considering that today’s (transhumanist) science is actively looking for ways to prolong human life and perhaps to even achieve a kind of immortality in the long run, it seems logical to suppose that with the passing of decades (turbulent as they are), and the aid of supernatural entities and magic, scientific longevity projects have made serious progress in the world of Shadowrun.

My question is:

What degree of immortality has metahumanity achieved in the Shadowrun canon?

How long can the average, advanced citizen (not subject to various extreme risks) expect to live? Is there cheap gene therapy, nanotech cleanup, magical revitalization and so on available for the middle-class masses, be they any subspecies?

If not, what are the major factors that explain, again in the canon, why longevity has not made progress in a world where the adventurous rich can become actual superheroes thanks to bioware, cyberware, and whateverelseware?

I’d primarily be interested in the current canon (SR5 & Anarchy), but if the topic was addressed (only) in earlier editions (and then retconned), that will do as well. 🙂

CUPS Error – Canon MF633cdw printing beyond (doble) of the requested number

I installed CUPS on Linux Mint 19. x and after installing the printer via Cups, two things happened: (1) The printer remains installed in CUPS even though I have reinstalled Mint on my notebook, did not need to reinstall, is already there fixed. If I try to reinstall 2 printers appear the same on the system. (2) When I send a file to print, it multiduplicates the number of pages requested, example: if I request 2 copies of the file, I receive 4; If I ask 4, I receive 16 and so on. I already tried reinstalling CUPS, I deleted and reinstalled the printer, I already reseted the printer and nothing solves! Please help!

When did Karsus’s Folly become a canon part of the FR lore?

In a recent discussion following the question about edition transitions in the Forgotten Realms, the exact point when Karsus’s Fall became part of the canon of FR lore was debated. When the Arcane Age was introduced in 1996, there was the boxed set Netheril: Empire of Magic, which detailed Karsus’s Fall and how that caused Mystryl to reincarnate herself as Mystra, and there was also an adventure named How the Mighty Are Fallen, in which the player characters could participate in the final days of Netheril. However the adventure as it was written did not really give the opportunity for the characters to stop Karsus.

On the other hand, it might still be possible to argue that the whole Arcane Age scenario was an optional component, and the DM could entertain the possibilty of having her players stop Karsus, or even claim that Netheril was not even the way described in the boxed set. It could be that Karsus’s Fall arc was not really canon; until it appeared in the many 3e products, like the Grand History of the Realms.

So my question is: when did Karsus’s Fall become a canon part of FR lore? The question is mainly about which edition of the game, but more detailed data, or some sort of in-game information are also welcome.

Are there canon rules about mutations caused by the spellplague (as we can see it in the MMORPG Neverwinter)?

In the MMORPG Neverwinter, we have some low level area and quests where we can fight creatures that, as we learn rapidly, are people that have mutated because of the spellplague. I have searched for rules about that but the only thing that I could find is that humans touched by the spellplague become Shadar-kai, but they don’t really look like the creatures we fight.

Are there other canon rules about that, or is it something that Neverwinter just made up?
