Need Intuitive Scanning software… done with foss

OK, been using xsane for many years now, it has not evolved in as many. I need something that is intuitive, say for something as simple as being able to adjust the scan size for a multipage documents from a sheet feeder. Maybe even de-skewing features, as some android apps do. Whenever I do a google search for a suitable replacement, nothing really comes up.So I’m tempted to assume I am the only person in the world with such requirements, but maybe not. Suggestions? At this point, foss not a requirement, but microsoft or apple are not an option.

Should my UA Beast Conclave ranger slaughter her Animal Companions when she is done with them?

I’m in the process of converting my PHB Ranger to a UA Ranger. In doing so I’m looking with particular interest at the differences this has on the Animal Companion.

The new features that have caught my eye, and hence spawned this question, are these two which relate to bonding with your Animal Companion and bringing it back after death:

Rules on the initial bond (emphasis mine)

With 8 hours of work and the expenditure of 50 gp worth of rare herbs and fine food, you call forth an animal from the wilderness to serve as your faithful companion. You normally select you companion from among the following animals: an ape, a black bear, a boar, a giant badger, a giant weasel, a mule, a panther, or a wolf. However, your DM might pick one of these animals for you, based on the surrounding terrain and on what types of creatures would logically be present in the area.

Rules on bonding again after its death (emphasis mine)

If your animal companion is ever slain, the magical bond you share allows you to return it to life. With 8 hours of work and the expenditure of 25 gp worth of rare herbs and fine food, you call forth your companion’s spirit and use your magic to create a new body for it. You can return an animal companion to life in this manner even if you do not possess any part of its body.

It seems to me that the rules are encouraging me to shelve the loving and faithful bond I have with my companion once our time together has come to an end and, assuming the creature is still alive, instead of setting it free to return to the wild, I should slaughter it (probably in a style not to dissimilar to the dog in I Am Legend).

The benefits of slaying the animal instead of letting it live are considerable:

  • Unlike the initial bond there is no need for an animal of the given type to be in the area should I want to bond with one, I can just create it out of herbs and spices.
  • I get it for half price.
  • I get the exact same animal (in a new body) as opposed to a different animal of the same type. (No advantage here rules wise, but could be meaningful RP wise.)
  • I can create a ‘pokedex’ of animal companions, allowing me to draw any out at will. So even if I stumble upon a location that contains animals that I don’t want as companions at the time, I should bond with one regardless, immediately slaughter it to add to my library for future use, and then repeat with any others in the area, bringing back my original companion once I’m done (who I also slaughtered).

I’m surprised that the rules are arranged in such a way as to make this an attractive option, my reading of the Ranger Companion is that it is intended to be a loving, or at least mutually respectful, relationship.

Other than alignment issues, am I missing anything that makes this a less appealing idea? Are there any rules I’ve overlooked or perhaps follow up from Wizards of the Coast or others?

Should we go with git flow or trunk based development where development, test and deployment done by separate groups

The focus of our company is not software but we have our own team that develops apps and services to support our business. There are more than 300 from small one-liners to huge fully-fledged web applications to just PL/SQL packages. Our team is generally composed of senior engineers. But we don’t have any open source applications and hardly ever more than 2 developers work on the same project if ever more than just one. So it’s most of the time just one guy working on a project at the same time. The process is defined so that we first do the development, then after we finish our job we pass it to testers and if all the tests pass, they, in turn, pass it to the operations group for deployment. We usually have no strict deadlines because what our business mainly runs on is a bunch of third party software and not what we develop in-house. So I’m a bit confused as to whether we should adopt git flow or trunk based development, or even something else. Does anybody have a similar environment? If so, what way do you go?

Eliminating possible watermarking done by text editors

On which text editor is it easiest to prevent and/or eliminate watermarking?

Pre-installed malware that defeats anonymity being used on an airgapped system can be made ineffective, at least partially, by making sure the device does not have any of the hardware necessary to connect to the internet.

But what about watermarking? One would have to eliminate the metacontent of any traffic you want to send in a text file, and then look at it closely in hex editor.

Is there an easier way to make sure that a file has not been watermarked? On which text editor is this easiest?
