Changed URL for a page that was indexed by Googlebot. Will redirect 301 from the old URL to the new one. But what to do with my Sitemap?

I’m planning to change a url for one of my site’s page.




The fact is that Google has already indexed the old url:

And from these DOC’s, we see that to avoid lose page ranking we should respond with a 301 - Moved permanently from the old URL pointing to the new URL.

I get that I should redirect (301) from the old URL to the new one. So when Google re-crawls, it will see that change. But what should be on my Sitemap? The old URL or the new one? Or both?

I tend to think that it would be best to keep only the new url on my Sitemap. But what if Google crawls the new URL before it sees the redirect from the old one? Wouldn’t the new page URL start off as a new page (from Google’s index perspective) with zero ranking points? How does Googlebot handles that? What is the recommended practice?

Changed DNS and site broke [closed]

Yesterday, I was adding some DNS records to connect Mailchimp, when I tried to add one of the necessarily CNAME records, it said it already existed, so I couldn’t add another one. Then I deleted one of the CNAME records, so I could add it but my site got really slow after that. I tried reading it but it didn’t work. Today it can’t even connect. The CNAME record was (Not entirely sure) like this:   -  14400 - IN - CNAME  - 

I think it has something to do with the deletion, I checked my host, Hostgator, and the server wasn’t down so my site should work.

Btw, Mailchimp can’t verify my domain although I’ve added the A and CNAME records, maybe someone knows why?

Is it possible to prove the content of a file hasn’t changed since certain date?

Today I make an archive file. Later I might want to send the archive file to somebody else, but when I send it, I want to be able to prove to the other person that I haven’t changed anything in it after today. Knowing that computer- and serverdates may be spoofed, can I do anything myself to assure this? Like including something or anything.

I’ve been thinking about hashes, but that doesn’t seem to fix the content in time. Only when I would have it registered at a notary, but that would be a bit oversized solution :-). And including the headlines of todays news would only prove it’s NOT unaltered since yesterday.

Can this be done, or is there any objective reasoning why this would not be possible?

Wi-Fi passphrase changed overnight—bug or attack?

This morning I discovered that the WPA-Personal passphrase of my residential ISP–provided wireless router had been truncated to the first 3 characters. Everything else in its configuration appeared to be in working order, and upon reentering the complete passphrase all clients were able to automatically reassociate.

What would cause that to happen? Is it likely to be just a bug in the router, or might it be a symptom of more nefarious activity? I’m not sure if I should just go on with my day or treat the device as compromised.

Can the cost factor be changed of Windows’ credential cache?

I’m having a hard time finding relevant documentation from Microsoft (or any third party, for that matter) about any registry key that may change the cost factor of cached credentials.

One can control how many logons are stored through the registry key CachedLogonsCount, but what I would like to change is the cost parameter of PBKDF2. The default is a cost of 10240, which is quite low (we managed to crack an 11 character password (of a domain admin) by using a large wordlist and hashcat on an ~$ 8/hour VPS with a GPU for about one hour).

Of course, turning off the cache (and especially not logging in with a domain admin account on attacker-accessible workstations) is the proper solution for this kind of attack. However, our client does not want to turn off caching for availability reasons: if the network goes down, individual systems should still work. Since they refuse to turn it off altogether, and since rolling out disk encryption and physical access controls will take a while, it would be good to be able to recommend changing a simple setting in the meantime.

Are attack/damage modifiers recalculated for a druid in Wild Shape if its ability scores changed?

Are attack/damage bonuses recalculated if the ability scores are changed while in Wild Shape?

For example:

  1. I transform into a Giant Scorpion. My Str bonus is +2.
  2. A shadow drains my strength from 15 to 13. My Str bonus is now only +1.

Do I need to subtract 1 from my attack bonus and damage bonus when making attacks as the Giant Scorpion?

Get data from Active Directory when a field in custom list is changed in SharePoint 2013

I’m having a list with the following columns that have relation in the Active Directory: employee name, employee charge, department, extension number, employee’s boss, and other text columns.

I’m trying to do 2 different things:

  1. Get in the employee’s name column a list of employee from the Active Directoy, and with that selected employee name, automatically fill the fields charge, department, extension number, employee’s boss, with the data registered in the Active Directory.


  1. Fill the column fields charge, department, extension number, employee’s boss using the “Created by” column, getting the information from the Active Directory of the user who is creating the ítem.
