  4. Click Insert -> Data View -> Empty data view.
  5. Place cursor in newly create DataSources tag.
  6. Click Insert -> Data Source -> and select a list.
  7. In the data source pane click refresh Data source link

error The server returned a non-specific error when trying to get data from the data source. Check the format and content of your query and try again. If the problem persists, contact the server administrator

Ran a fiddler session. get 500 response on. /_vti_bin/webpartpages.asmx.

WSL licencing and implementation details

Almost every article about WSL mentioning Linux Kernel inside Windows.

I was wondering how it satisfies the Linux Kernel licence and how it is implemented on the concept level.

I’ve encountered the following issue on Github with some explanations:

  • The kernel was re-implemented from scratch.
  • This is a specification (if I am correct).

So, the following questions arise (please note that I am new to Linux and not a licencing expert):

  • Free software could be re-implemented from scratch and used in commercial product without licence compilance?
  • Do specifications themselves have licences to limit usage of implementations in commercial products? (sounds like a patent to me, but I am not sure)

Any opinions are appreciated and welcome!

Authenticated users changing personal details

We have a website where users authenticate with a username/password and also have the option of switching on two factor authentication

One of the options they have in our application is to amend their home address which is then immediately updated on our back-office database

One client has asked for an extra later of security (their words, not mine) for when the user does this.

We’ve discussed sending a PIN to the mobile number or email we have recorded for the user, – I was wondering what others have implemented (if anything at all!)

Feels a little overkill to me as they are not changing bank details or any sort of payment instruction


Take card details for free products

Is there a way to capture card details for free products on WooCommerce?

If there’s a subscription product, say £5.00 per month, but the user supplies a coupon for £5.00 off their first month – they still need to enter in their card details.

Currently when the user enters in the coupon, no card details are required (because it’s classed as Free)…

How could a scammer get my card details if I’ve never used it

Today I had about $ 600US spread across 20 transactions taken from my debit card over the past three days (I notified my bank said they will give me a new card and will refund me)

This particular account I only use to transfer money in and out of to get bonus savings interest; I have never used it to make purchases online, the card has always been left in a draw and never been taken out of the house.

Given I have never entered the card details anywhere to make a transaction, and neither has the previous versions of the card ever been used, how could this have happened? I have never stored the card details anywhere.

Its unlikely the scammer could have enumerated card details (start from 0000-...-0000; 01/01 for expiry date and 000 for cvv and increment) as they would have also needed to get my billing address correct.

Google calendar: Show availability without revealing personal calendar details to admin

  • I have a “work” Google Calendar and several “personal” Google Calendars
    • The work calendar is administered by my company
  • I’d like to show coworkers my combined availability (work and personal), but hide the personal event details
    • I can’t share my personal calendar with the setting “Make changes and manage sharing” because I don’t want the admin to have full read/write access to it)

Is there a way to do this within Google Calendars?

Zapier allows me to automatically mirror new personal calendar events onto my work calendar, but this is expensive and inelegant. I’m hoping someone here knows a better way.
