In the world I created, there’s a famous card game. It has the following characteristics:
- Complex and numerous rules
- Spectators can bet during the match
- The winner is the player who won more “tricks” (no specific definition of what a trick is)
- Cheating is possible but complicated
Creating the exact rules for such game doesn’t seem worth it (it might take more time that thinking an entire campaign).
How can I simulate a match of such game? I’d like a game to be an entire scene (where PCs might be either spectators or players of the game)
I’d like to have the players have the feeling they’re really playing the game, trying to outwit their opponent, cheat, bluff, etc.
I already know it can be handled as a Contest, but I still see it hard to picture such Contest. Without creating the exact rules of the game, how can I create tension during the Contest? How can players know what kind of skills they might use?
My objective would be to make an application that makes the computer identify as a headset, so I can connect my phone to it and route the audio of the calls to the computer.
I think this is highly related to security. I’m talking about the ability to make a device identify as something else, think about the USB rubber ducky, now replace "USB" with "Bluetooth".
That’s why I posted here. The purpose of doing this would not be anything malicious, I just want to connect my phone to the PC so I can hear the voice of the person calling me on my phone, through the headset connected to my PC:
Phone -> Bluetooth -> Computer -> Headset
Flippa is a website that lets sellers of domains and website list their properties for sale. They do not handle funds, escrow d0t com and/or paypal handles the sales. After taking my money for listing (250) I was able to sell my website. When it came to finish sale, told me that in order to proceed to escrow d0t com that I must: Upload selfie with my govt id, scan both sides of id, AND also do a "liveness video." I was a bit alarmed and looked in the their partner. They use a company that does KYC verification. Find it strange flippa, a non-financial company, is using KYC. Anyway the company they use claims to be based out of London. Which is is not true, their address in London is paid virtual business office. They are a Russian company, with russian founders and employees. No hate on Russia but as an American I am not comfortable uploading all this private info JUST to complete a website sale!
Is this even legal for Flippa to do? Flippa also says they store the information I sent them. I don’t like that they only ask me to complete this AFTER they have my money.
TL;DR A company that offers listing service for domains wants my selfie with my govt id. They use verification service that obscures that they’re based in Russia. Is this safe?
Lately, in the music world, there is a big uproar over how fans purchase artist’s merchandise. It was set off when rapper 6ix9 accused Ariana Grande of cheating on sales because, as he claims, 60,000 of her merchandise bundle sales were purchased by just 5 credit cards. In reply to that, her manager, music mogul, Scooter Braun replied via Instagram that Billboard audits sales and anything over 4 sales per credit card will be thrown out.
There is a lot of background, but I will keep it brief.
- Neilsen (who collects music data on behalf of Billboard via Soundscan) has a point of sale system for brick and mortar physical music seller, but insists that "bundled" sales (music that sells as a download while buying non music merchandise) are handled through a musician’s personal website, with a latest reporting time of Friday afternoon for the prior week’s sales.
- Nielsen does impose a maximum of 4 sales of a particular bundled merchandise item per transaction. rules on reporting per shopify Billboard-Nielsen full details (January 2020)
- Shopify seems to be the go to site for most musician sites for selling merchandise. https://singlemusic.com/
- Shopify claims to report all sales automatically (electronically?) the next day to Neilsen Soundscan.
- Most musicians have their merchandise storefronts stop an end user from purchasing more than 4 of an item per transaction, but allows the user to buy more merchandise or song downloads after completing a transaction on the same card.
- No shops that I tested stopped a card from being used to purchase the exact same thing again.
That is a lot to unpack, I know, but I will stop here with my questions. As I am not sure who to believe, I am wondering if it is legal to submit the credit card number to Nielsen, a 3rd party? If not, could there have been a mistake in Scooter Braun’s word choice (credit card/transaction)? If credit card numbers are being passed to Billboard, wouldn’t musicians also have their developer code a restriction against reusing the same credit card? I don’t know, something doesn’t quite sync.
We are a large e-commerce website trying to introduce a feature by which customers can save their credit card details securely. We are aware of the need for PCI compliance and working out the necessary security aspects. Will be great to know the difference between a single-use and a multi-use payment tokens. Examples of websites that use these types will be very useful.
I don’t have my phone at the moment, since I turned it over yesterday at the shop for a screen replacement. The SIM card is removed and it’s sitting in my wallet now.
When I opened WhatsApp Web a couple minutes earlier today, I was connected to my account and could send and read new messages. This connection continued for around 15 minutes or so, until it stopped receiving signal from the phone.
My question is, how was WhatsApp Web able to receive signal in the first place?
i need to find someone serious who can crack the pin number from credit-card and atm chip cards. By brute-force probabl Benjo1730gmail.com Thank you.
Someone I know was stolen a few hundreds dollars from a savings account. Looking at the history, she saw transactions like Uber rides and video games purchases she did not do. This account is used strictly for investing and is only accessed from her iPad. The only access card is in a drawer in her home and has never been used in a terminal. I know you can use hacked terminals to clone cards and steal PINs but my understanding is you need to actually swipe the card somewhere for this to happen. Appart from an internal data leak at the bank, is there any other possible explanation?
Hey there! I have been working in copywriting for several years and I found a good option to get payment. That's Blackcatcard. The issue is that i live outside Europe and my clients sometimes have doubts about sending money to my local account. So I opened an european account for free, the card was sent to my address for free as well. I can use the card in any shop and withdraw cash at any ATM with a 2% fee (min 1,5 euro) wherever Mastercard is accepted. For Europeans the conditions are more…

Currently I can use
$ gpg --card-status
to interact with smartcards that run the OpenPGP applet. Through trial-and-error, it seems that only the first card reader will interact with
gpg. Using options that pass to
scdaemon seem to be deprecated:
$ gpg --reader-port 1 --card-status gpg: WARNING: "--reader-port" is an obsolete option - it has no effect except on scdaemon
Is there a way to interact with an OpenPGP smartcard that is not connected to the first card reader?
