How can I make effective use of single portable strobe with direct lighting for an event?

I’ve been tasked with some event photography this weekend. Although the event will be held inside, the color of the walls prevents me from using bounce flash, so I have to use direct flash with a single Nikon SB-900 strobe with a D700 body.

I’d like to avoid the “passport photo” look, but I was wondering what I can do maximize the effectiveness of a single strobe. I have a small softbox and I’m considering a flash bracket, but I don’t know how much that would help. There will be many people at the event so I can only bring enough equipment that will keep me mobile without banging into people. In what ways can I make the light as pleasing as possible?

What determines “effective cohort level”?

I’m making a Lion Shaman Druid and was interested in picking up a Dragonne as my Monstrous Companion at higher levels. A Dragonne is a 9 HD / CR 7 magical beast. What is its effective Cohort level?

I’m confused because looking at the chart a hippocampus is Cohort level 5 but 2 HD / CR 1.

Dragonne Description says :

A character with the Leadership feat can take a dragonne as a cohort. Such characters must have an effective leadership level of 10th. Most dragonne cohorts gain levels in barbarian, fighter, or ranger.

Effective Procedures and P vs NP Problem

If, suppose, P doesn’t equal NP. Implication of this statement is that there is no effective procedure to solve a hard problem; however there exists an acceptable solution S. I have following two explicit queries:

  1. If an effective procedure cannot be given which yields a solution, in what sense is the S actually a solution? Does this defy the formal definition of solution? I am assuming that an effective procedure is equivalent to a proof.

  2. If there is no effective procedure to arrive at an accepted solution, this implies that solution is not a syntactic consequence of problem. According to formal definition, syntactic consequence is equivalent to an effective procedure. If solution to a hard problem is not a syntactic consequence of problem, what is it?

How to solve for effective interest rate including fees?

I have gotten very stuck on a math problem involving interest rates when combined with flat fees and cashback incentives. I am looking to determine an “effective interest rate” so that two loans with different fees and incentives can be compared.

Here’s what I’ve got so far…

$ $ COST = \frac{r}{12} * P * t * \frac{(1+\frac{r}{12})^t}{(1+\frac{r}{12})^t-1}+f-c $ $

where r is the annual interest rate, P is the principal, t is the term, f is the fee, and c is the cashback incentive.

Of these variables, I know everything to calculate COST.

My question is… how can I “unwind” COST to get to an “effective” interest rate?

$ $ COST = \frac{R}{12}*P*t*\frac{(1+\frac{R}{12})^t}{(1+\frac{R}{12})^t-1}$ $

I’ve gotten as far as this…

$ $ \frac{12*COST}{P*t}=\frac{R*(1+\frac{r}{12})^t}{(1+\frac{r}{12})^t-1}$ $

But now I’m stuck. How can I solve for R from here?

Effective GIT Branching Strategy

I am trying to figure out the optimal branching strategy for my organization. And I have few doubts.

We have 3 main environments, Live(Production), UAT (pre-release) and Staging. Similary in GIT we have 2 Major branches. Master(State of Prod) , and Dev.

Developers start with checking out Git Dev and creating a feature branch from it. Suppose they developed feature F1, F2 and F3. And once they are happy with it they merged those feature back in DEV. A CI job deploys DEV code to our Staging environment.

Staging environment is where QA Tests. Lets assume QA Approves F1 and F3 and rejects F2. Now I want to move only F1 and F3 to the Release Branch. Release branch is auto deployed to UAT where end user can have sanity tests or user training for new release.

Now my question is should I create Release Branch from Master and Merge F1 and F3 into it? Or Stick with creating Release Branch from Dev? I am more inclined about creating release branch from Master as I dont have to revert F2 from Dev.

Can anyone help me out with this dilemma?

How effective is the ProxyGambit at allowing access to the internet without revealing true location and IP?

I’m very interested in purchasing or manufacturing this device on my own and maybe using it in conjunction with Tails/Tor:

https://samy.pl/proxygambit/

According to the site:

ProxyGambit is a simple anonymization device that allows you to access the Internet from anywhere in the world without revealing your true location or IP, fracturing your traffic from the Internet/IP through either a long distance radio link or a reverse tunneled GSM bridge that ultimately drops back onto the Internet and exits through a wireless network you’re no where near.

While a point to point link is possible, the reverse GSM bridge allows you to proxy from thousands of miles away with nothing other than a computer and Internet with no direct link back to your originating machine.

A high speed (150Mbps+) link is available with direct line of sight from 10km+ away, or if further away, a 2G GSM connection produces a reverse TCP tunnel serializing a shell into the device accessible from anywhere in the world via the Internet or GSM. Either method proxies your connection through local wifi networks near the device, shielding and making it more difficult to determine your true location, IP and identity.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear to be sold anywhere online and it hasn’t been discussed online since 2015.

My apologies for asking so many questions, but there appears to be no info on the actual workings of this anonymizing device, apart from a few stories in the media. For all those with some technical aptitude:

Has this device been extensively field-tested? Have there been any recent technological developments that have improved on the device? Does the device do what it says it does? And how would this compare to a directional long-distance wifi antenna to bypass need for an ISP and conceal physical device location? Would it be more or less secure or anonymous?

How can I make this code more effective? [on hold]
