Registry Setting – Windows lock screen grace period

I understand that there’s a registry setting for configuring a period of time after the screen saver has activated during which the user can provide input (e.g. mouse movement) and not have to log-in again before using the computer.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\ScreenSaverGracePeriod 

I don’t use a screen-saver, and thus this setting doesn’t apply.

Is there such a configuration setting for allowing a grace-period after the computer logs the user out, during which time it’s not necessary to re-authenticate?

US F1 Visa grace period attending a conference

I am currently in the US on a F1 Visa for studying. My I-20 is valid until May 19th, as then my program is finished. Usually I study in Canada (I am there on a study permit with a passport from Austria).

Before returning back to Canada I wanted to visit a conference in the US (in another state, I will have to take a plane). The conference starts on May 20 and lasts for 6 days.

My question is: am I allowed to attend the conference, as I am in the grace period of my F1 visa? Note, the conference is not part of my program in the US.

Second question: Can I get reimbursed for this conference by the conference organizers? Probably, I would run into troubles here as this might be considered some kind of work, which I am definitely not allowed to do.

Is it maybe somehow possible to apply for an ESTA and get a B1 stamp on it? But I only have domestic flights, so I guess this doesn’t work.

Do you have any suggestion regarding what is the best way to proceed to attend the conference and maybe even not to lose the reimbursement?

Do you take falling damage if falling from 20ft or less while grappled by someone affected by Cat’s Grace?

Here are the rules on falling :

At the end of a fall, a creature takes 1d6 bludgeoning damage for every 10 feet it fell, to a maximum of 20d6. The creature lands prone, unless it avoids taking damage from the fall.

One of the effects of Enhance Ability is called Cat’s Grace :

The target has advantage on Dexterity checks. It also doesn’t take damage from falling 20 feet or less if it isn’t incapacitated.

Let’s say Bob, who is affected by Cat’s Grace, grapples Rick, starts dragging him forward but then falls into a 20ft deep pit. We know Bob does not take falling damage, but what about Rick ? Does Rick take the 2d6, or does he also take nothing, thanks to Bob acting as some sort of cushion ?

Disabling Grace Period/Soft Quotas on Synology DMS 6

I have a Synology NAS device running DSM 6, and am trying to use user quotas to manage disk space, specifically for use with backups.

The problem is, because of the 7 day grace period that allows users to exceed their quota, this is causing more problems than it solves, as backups are exceeding the limit as the soft limit tricks them into thinking there is plenty of space left, before failing when the grace period suddenly expires and leaves them with zero bytes remaining.

What I want to know is; is there a way to disable the grace period on DSM 6 and to use only hard limits instead?

NOTE: Answers really need to come from people who at least have access to a Synology NAS, as while they are Linux based the environment is very non-standard, and lacks many of the tools Linux users can take for granted.

For example, in specific regard to quotas, while DSM 6 appears to be using the common Linux quota package, it does so with most of the standard tools for it missing, so I can’t simply use edquota as I would on another system, which is why I’m not sure how to disable the grace period.

Docomo (now Airtel) Indian Prepaid sim card is in Grace State

I have been living in Europe last 5 years and had my Indian phone number active (which I use to receive the OTP for bank transactions).

Now after 5 years of usage, on my Indian number, I get a notification that the SIM card is in GRACE STATE.

What is Grace State.? Does it mean the SIM is close to de-activation?

How to retain this number? Has anyone got through this type of notification? Any tips, please!
