Ghost Blog not starting after successful installation

Screenshot of “ghost run” output

Installed ghost blog on AWS lightsail by following instructions here: https://medium.com/@thucnc/how-to-install-ghost-publishing-platform-on-your-production-server-a07e7ea4d070

Everything installed successfully, but the “Starting Ghost” keeps flickering for a long time without starting the blog. Tried looking at “ghost ls” , it says status as “stopped”. Help?

Solution for “ghost touches” – Procedure to disable a small portion of the screen from being sensitive to touch?

So I ordered a cheap Chinese phone (umidigi) as a secondary device and the unit I got, out of the box, was afflicted with a faulty display. Troubleshooting it I have diagnosed the problem precisely:

  • There is an intermittent false touch input occurring in the bottom right, very far bottom right part only of the screen
  • Lowering the brightness appears to minimize the presence of the false input
  • Is likely to require disassembly of the device to remedy the issue

I alerted the seller I bought the phone from, and they’re sending me a new unit pronto, and told me to just keep this one. Yay.

So, Id like to eventually permanently resolve this phones issue and open it up myself, but in the meantime I’d like to get some use out of it. But, with the ghost touch using the phone with anything other than a Bluetooth mouse is maddening.

The area effected is at the very, very bottom of the phone and may occupy 15px or so at most. I attempted to use a few apps, one called ‘Partial Screen’ and some others like Screen Shift. However, the adjustments to the display only result in cosmetic changes and do not desensitize the adjusted portion of the screen to touch input and thus the false input creating problems.

Can anyone point me to a procedure, adb input or otherwise, that could ensure that some specified portion of the touch screen will not respect any touch input?

Thanks.

Google Hangouts: Invisible, “ghost” calls from unknown people

Once a week or so, I hear the Google Hangouts “Incoming Call” sound on my Windows 10 machine. I can’t find anything to click on, to either accept or deny the call:

  • In Google Chrome / Gmail tab– where incoming hangouts calls normally show up for my accepted contacts– I don’t see any notification of an incoming call
  • No Google Hangouts app shows in Windows Taskbar
  • No existing Google Chrome window shows Hangouts
  • No separate Google Hangouts icon appears in my Windows Taskbar
  • No Google Hangouts item appears in the Windows Taskbar Notification area

These ghost calls are frustrating. Is there anything I can do..?

Ghost Accounts in banking

last couple of days I tried to figure out combination of requirements from Online sales department for our e-banking app.

The main theme are “ghost accounts”, I would rather call them “fake products”. As a client you can have plenty of different financial products. Usually it´s a bank account (or several), but you can have some credit products, like a loans.

This products you already have are places clearly on the welcome screen. Now sales would like to mix them with the ghost accounts. The welcome screen consists of tiles – 1 for every product. Tile for the loan you already have has specific info like:

  • name and ID of the product and the name of the owner
  • amount of money on this credit card – for example
  • amount of blocked money
  • how much a when is your next repayment
  • and several shorcuts to the basic operation for this product

They plan this ghost accounts tiles to look like your real product, except the only shortcut action would be “Purchase”.

I´m not thrilled…. As a client I would be shocked at least for the first moment because it would look like I have some unknown new debts….

Don´t you someone have some study or experience with such a thing? I don´t like the risk of confusing our clients. My preference would be no mix, but two separate categories like “this you have” a “you can purchase this as well”.

OS X file system anomaly: “ghost ‘?’ in file names and unexpected symlinks

I’ve never seen this before – only found it because Time Machine kept failing (on Mac OS X High Sierra 10.13.6). A similar question was asked here ~7 years go but it was not solved (and he did not have symlink issues): File names in OS X appearing with question marks

I ran disk repair several times from Disk Utility.app (which did not find or fix any errors).

I determined the only location with this issue was iTunes Media/Music folder, so I zipped up the entire folder to force symlink resolution. This worked to resolve the ghost symlinks (some had 4 hops noted but no source). Backups now run without error (48 and 80??, I don’t recall presently).

What I’ve not been able to fix is the random ‘?’ character in the file.

I tried the solution noted here: Remove question mark "?" from file names OSX which seemed like it would be perfect, but it had no effect. The “?” still persists even after the mv operation, specifically:

find . -type f -name '*?*' | while read f; do mv "$  f" "$  {f//\?/}"; done 

In Finder, no ? appears and you cannot grep “?” out of the name, so strictly speaking, the character does not appear to exist. They only appear in Terminal:

And here’s what I see in Finder:

Does anyone in 2019 have any idea what is going on here?

Would Ghost Trap revert a Psion Uncarnate to corporeal form?

Would the spell Ghost Trap revert a psion uncarnates incorporeal form if they enter the affected area ? What confuses me is this part of the wording for the ghost trap spell:

All incorporeal creatures in this field become corporeal. Creatures cannot turn ethereal while in this area, and ethereal creatures cannot become nonethereal while in this field.
