Auditd how to exclude everything

I am trying to exclude everything but the things I want in Auditd, however the things I’ve tried, seem to log a lot more details, the majority are irrelevant.

-a never,exclude -F msgtype=CWD -a never,exclude -F msgtype=USER_ACCT -a never,exclude -F msgtype=CONFIG_CHANGE -a never,exclude -F msgtype=SERVICE_START -a never,exclude -F msgtype=SERVICE_STOP -a never,exclude -F msgtype=PROCTITLE

-a exit,never -F auid<100 -a exit,never -F uid<100

-a exit,never -F exe=/usr/sbin/mount.nfs -a exit,never -F exe=/usr/sbin/automount

-a always,exit -F arch=b64 -S connect

I can exclude them manually, but it’s impossible to catch everything apart from the specific thing I want to log.

So the question, how do I configure it to exclude everything except the things you want?

[ Politics ] Open Question : Isn’t everything we call communism actually just socialism cause communism is a pipe dream that will never actually exist?

Literally all those totalitarian governments from the 20th century were socialist. Fascism was literally created by socialist, both fascism and socialism can be right or left wing. They all centralized the economy, some might let people operate privately but it was all owned by the state and they owned the means of production, exchange and distribution as even Mussolini explained. Fascism “Together we are stronger like a bundle of sticks” the essence of what socialism is all about, COLLECTIVISM. These idiots who call themselves socialists today would be purged by their own dictatoral government or forced to work in work camps >The Soviet Union >Cuba >China >National Socialist Germany >East Germany after it was split by ideological lines >Camodia >Vietnam >North Korea which is still very much a socialist government just with a juche ideology

How to block everything except my connection to the VPN?

I’m trying to make Murus block everything, except my connection to the VPN server. I don’t want my Mac to make any outbound calls to any ports unless via the VPN connection. I’m trying to add a rule that allows the VPN, while everything else is blocked by set block-policy drop.

I can connect to the VPN, but nothing works aside from that. Can you point me to the right direction?

Player claims their wizard character knows everything (from books). Solutions?

I have a player who is an elf wizard and his entire backstory and goal is knowledge related. He made his elf well over 200 years old and claims that his character has read a massive amount of books (pretty much reading since his elf character could read and hasn’t stopped) and that’s all his player apparently has ever done. That’s cool and I can skirt around some of that using homebrew lore, enemies, and locations but he continually argues with me and other players that his character would just, “know that already” since he spent hundreds of years reading books from all over the place.

How can I allow him to keep the mega bookworm aspect from his character’s past without having to appease him by basically allowing him to know everything like lore or city info or what-have-you? He also claims (even though he knows I won’t allow it) that his character should be learning spells much faster since he’s already studied them and read about them and so on.

An example from a session a few weeks back: Setting – Party has taken over a pirate ship and the party’s original crew has all died. They’ve taken several pirates prisoner.

Wizard: I’ll steer the boat back to Waterdeep.

Me: You don’t know how to work the ship or any aspect of giving out commands to do so (neither do any of the other PCs) and you’ve never been on a ship before now.

Wizard: I’ve probably read about them in a book at some point so I would know how to steer a ship, the names of the ship parts and what commands to give.

Me: Uh…no. (the best thing I could come up with was:) You may have read something about boats in more than one book even but you’ve never had experience and you more than likely would not be able to retain all of that information to be able to efficiently sail a ship.

Wizard: Then I do my best to recall everything.

Me: …Make an intelligence check.

I get that characters may have done something a while back and want to recall something but just reading about them and saying that your character has read basically 90% of the books in Faerun doesn’t work for me. It makes the other PCs feel undervalued as well and I’ve had more than one ask why he can do that.

I’m stumped and I can’t think of a legit argument or reason that makes sense with the whole elf character being a brand new adventurer at level 1 (wizard) but has lived for hundreds of years and knows everything but just hasn’t has the actual experiences yet.

So I got into Dnd recently but everything is going wrong for me

So i’ve always wanted to play dnd before and recently I finally found a group I can play with regularly. I spent a lot of time chatting with them and building up a fun noble bright paladin that I though would be cool and heroic and always try to be a shining example of good behaviour even to the parties detriment.

Unfortunately my character just fails at everything. Every skill check, every save, every combat. Just fails and misses. we’re about to start our 4th session now usually about 7 hours long and I’m just so bored. I even tried to add some flavour to the game in a non dice rolling form by romancing an npc but another player pushed in and just seduced them away.

What should I do? I really want to play the game and have fun roleplaying my character, but with how awful everything gone for them so far the only progression I can see them going down is going back home to train more. They’re currently heartbroken from having their love taken and depressed about their inadequacy.

Its not like she’s weak either, I rolled 17 dex and con for her but it just doesn’t matter I can’t hit anything. we’ve fought 30+ bandits so far and I’ve killed one, it took my 5 swings to land a blow with my rapier with thunderous strike.

I had to set up a backup email because I couldn’t get in my original on hoe can I log in the new on and have everything synced [duplicate]

This question already has an answer here:

I need help in a way of getting all my important work msgs and numbers from my email and I am locked out of it

Apparmor – how to ‘allow everything’ rule, then tighten up?

Being very new to apparmor, would just like to start by placing some simple 1 line restriction on a program. And leave everything else as-is. Also, for other reasons it’s not possible for me to easily profile this specific executable. It is a part of the window manager that is started / kocked off by GDM / gnome session during user login.

Hoping to achieve something a bit like this:

# Last Modified: Fri Dec 28 09:20:30 2018 #include <tunables/global>  /usr/bin/budgie-panel {    #include <abstractions/base>    # allow all rules first   allow *,    # Then deny 1 specific dbus bind access   deny dbus bind name=org.freedesktop.Notifications,  } 

But is the allow *, a correct syntax for ‘allow everything’, in my apparmor profile? Cannot find a clear documentation explaining about this.

Preview everything as text by default in Finder

I would like to preview a file which macOS has no idea how to open as a text file. For example, when I’m previewing foo.pdf or bar.png, I want Preview.app to be opened and render a PDF document or an image, as in the default behavior. However, when previewing .vimrc or .bash_history, I want to see the content of the file in text, instead of a huge white icon as shown below.
