Once Conjure Animal ends, do all animal body parts disappear?

I was reading about poisons when I stumbled upon the “Serpent Venom”. In short, you can harvest the poison of a Giant Poisonous Snake and then use it on weapons / poison edibles. I was wondering, if I use Conjure Animals to spawn eight Giant Poisonous Snakes can I harvest their poison and store it or will it disappear once the spell ends?

The spell description states that:

Each beast is also considered fey, and it disappears when it drops to 0 hit points or when the spell ends.

I would guess that means all parts of the animal will disappear but I would like some clarification before making any plans.

If you cast True Polymorph on matter made with the Creation spell will the creature disappear after the duration of Creation ends?

Cast creation to make vegetables that last a day, then cast true polymorph to make a dwarf from the vegetables, does the Creature disappear after a day? It says that if you use the matter created by Creation as a component the spell fails but True Polymorph doesn’t use the target as a component.

Under what circumstances does a phantom steed take a minute to disappear


Phantom Steed
3rd level illusion
Casting Time: 1 minute
Range: 30 feet
Components: V S
Duration: 1 hour
Classes: Wizard
A Large quasi-real, horselike creature appears on the ground in an unoccupied space of your choice within range. You decide the creature’s appearance, but it is equipped with a saddle, bit, and bridle. Any of the equipment created by the spell vanishes in a puff of smoke if it is carried more than 10 feet away from the steed. For the duration, you or a creature you choose can ride the steed. The creature uses the statistics for a riding horse, except it has a speed of 100 feet and can travel 10 miles in an hour, or 13 miles at a fast pace. When the spell ends, the steed gradually fades, giving the rider 1 minute to dismount. The spell ends if you use an action to dismiss it or if the steed takes any damage.

Looking at the wording of this spell, it appears that because “when the spell ends, the steed gradually fades” and “the spell ends if you use an action to dismiss it or if the steed takes any damage,” is it correct to interpret this as meaning that even if a steed is attacked in combat, it is still a fully-functional mount for the next minute?

If so, to what extent does this apply? Would a steed targeted by Dispel Magic or one inside an Antimagic Field also take a minute to fade away as the spell ends? Is there any circumstance in which it would immediately disappear?

VirtualBox LAMP Server to Proxmox causes webroot to disappear

Hey guys! First time here.
Hopefully I'm in the right spot, move this thread if not.

I'm having some problems when trying to transfer my completely functional website thats hosted on my Virtualbox VM LAMP Server onto a Proxmox installation.
Let me explain.
I've had my first website up for about two months now. I'm running it on a Ubuntu Server 18.04 LAMP stack in a VirtualBox VM on Windows 10. I have my own GoDaddy signed certs so my site has https. I wanted to transfer this to My Proxmox…

VirtualBox LAMP Server to Proxmox causes webroot to disappear

Splash screen immediately disappear on boot

I have a Fujitsu Lifebook E780 with Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS.

When i boot my PC in quiet splash mode after the purple screen I get a black screen for some second and then this splash screen,

Splash screen

But after less then a second the splash screen disappear leaving back just a black screen for the rest of the boot.

The boot is very slow (1 min 40s on average) and gives the following errors:

19:41:36 colord-sane: io/hpmud/pp.c 627: unable to read device-id ret=-1 19:41:25 bluetoothd: Failed to set mode: Blocked through rfkill (0x12) 19:41:25 spice-vdagent: Cannot access vdagent virtio channel /dev/virtio-ports/com.redhat.spice.0 19:41:20 pulseaudio: [pulseaudio] backend-ofono.c: Failed to register as a handsfree audio agent with ofono: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.ofono was not provided by any .service files 19:41:11 wpa_supplicant: dbus: Failed to construct signal 19:40:56 bluetoothd: Failed to set mode: Blocked through rfkill (0x12) 19:40:46 kernel: Bluetooth: hci0: unexpected event for opcode 0x0000 19:40:46 kernel: mei mei::55213584-9a29-4916-badf-0fb7ed682aeb:01: FW version command failed -5 19:40:21 kernel: ima: Error Communicating to TPM chip 19:40:21 kernel: ACPI: SPCR: Unexpected SPCR Access Width.  Defaulting to byte size 

None of these errors seems to be somehow related to the splash screen problem but I’m not sure of this.

Here there is the /etc/default/grub content that shows my boot settings

Thread titles disappear from “New Posts” after visiting them

When I go to New Posts and click on a thread title, that thread title will not be there if I click on the New Posts button again.

I've also noticed that it only happens to one page threads. Threads that have more than one page do not disappear UNLESS you click on the last page instead of the thread title. Then if you click on the New Posts button again it will be gone from the list.

Is it a feature or a bug?

PS I believe thread titles should just stay in the list after a user visits them.

Lubuntu/LXQt system trays load and then disappear

So please forgive me if I seem unknowledgeable about any of this stuff since I don’t spend a whole lot of time theming Linux. I recently had to switch from stock Pop!_OS to Lubuntu because my main machine went down and the GNOME DE was killing my backup laptop’s performance. As a result, I’ve been trying to theme the desktop so it is usable (dark theme, customized menu items for what I need, and icons that I recognize) and fast.

I’ve now switched to LXQt and the problem I’m having is when I start Skype, Slack, and Touchpad indicator, I first get the correct icon in the system tray. Then as soon as it loads, I get the following display:

The three right-most icons before the time are incorrect

As you can see on the right side, Skype, Slack, and Touchpad indicator are very unhelpful icons. This is a crucial issue for my work because I don’t open Slack or Skype windows often and rely on the feedback from the system tray icons to see if I’ve received messages or calls. I’ve already missed one important message due to this issue and I switched just last week.

I’ve tried Breeze, Faenza, Pop, and Ubuntu icon sets and not a single one works. One thought I had is that this is a migrated system; I backed up my old GNOME DE system and restored it on this system, so maybe icons are being misplaced when I use installers or change the settings. Anyone have any thoughts? What other information can I provide to help figure this out?

All settings of my plugin disappear on its settings page

so I am currently working on building my first plugin. I followed a tutorial to make a settings tab in the woocommerce settings tabs.

It worked once, but when I saved a setting, all elements of the page disappear and all that’s left is the submit button and the woocommerce-tabs. The setting can be called with the get_option() function, but well, you can’t change it anymore as the page is blank.

Here is my code:

 class wc_send_and_save_tracking_code_options {      public static function init() {         add_filter( 'woocommerce_settings_tabs_array', __CLASS__ . '::add_settings_tab', 50 );         add_action( 'wc_send_and_save_tracking_code_tab', __CLASS__ . '::settings_tab' );         add_action( 'wc_send_and_save_tracking_code_update_', __CLASS__ . '::update_settings' );     }        public static function add_settings_tab( $  settings_tabs ) {         $  settings_tabs['wc-send-and-save-tracking-code'] = __( 'WC send tracking email', 'wc-send-and-save-tracking-code' );         return $  settings_tabs;     }        public static function settings_tab() {         woocommerce_admin_fields( self::get_settings() );     }        public static function update_settings() {         woocommerce_update_options( self::get_settings() );     }       public static function get_settings() {         $  settings = array(             'section_title' => array(                 'name'     => __( 'WooCommerce send and save tracking code - Settings', 'wc-send-tracking-code' ),                 'type'     => 'title',                 'desc'     => '',                 'id'       => 'wc_settings_tab_demo_section_title'             ),             'description' => array(                 'name' => __( 'Email text', 'wc-send-tracking-code' ),                 'type' => 'textarea',                 'desc' => __( 'Here you can modify the text of your email.', 'wc-send-tracking-code' ),                 'id'   => 'wc_send_and_save_tracking_code_emailtext'             ),             'section_end' => array(                  'type' => 'sectionend',                  'id' => 'wc_settings_tab_demo_section_end'             )         );         return $  settings;     }  }   wc_send_and_save_tracking_code_options::init(); 

I turned WP_DEBUG on, but nothing is logged.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Teleport everything in a large zone; or teleport all living things and make a lot of equipment disappear

Imagine a traveling party of about 30 people, animals, wagons, and a bunch of equipment (e.g. think traveling theater). I’m trying to come up with a way for a devilish entity to teleport all of that away (on the same plane); or alternatively, teleport everybody and their animals, and then make all of their things disappear. The kidnapping happens in the night, while everybody is sleeping. A few constraints, for my scenario idea to work:

  • It needs to happen relatively discreetly, people a few hundred meters away shouldn’t notice that anything is happening (it can’t do too much noise, setting everything on fire is not an option);
  • It should leave no obvious trace; people who would look at the scene afterwards could fine clues, but nothing too obvious.
  • It should be compatible with the powers of a spellcaster devil of CR level between 9 and 11; maybe with a significant preparation time and resource consumption (burning scrolls, etc.), as well as assistance from a few minions.

Existing spells seem ill-suited for this, teleporting unwilling people is hard and requires high-level spells. But maybe there’s a creative way to do this e.g. with mind control, or minions with the right skillset?
