Is a spell suppressed or removed when the target temporarily becomes invalid?

Based on Jeremy Crawford’s tweet, if a target is under the effect of an ongoing spell, and then the target changes such that it is no longer a valid target, the spell no longer effects them.

But does the spell end, or is it merely suppressed?

For example, suppose a human has been charmed by a dominate person spell. A friendly wizard casts polymorph on them; they fail their save and get turned into a sheep. This makes their type change to Beast, which is an invalid target for the dominate person spell, and the charm effect ends. The next turn, the wizard chooses not to concentrate, so polymorph ends and the target pops back into human form.

Assuming the dominating caster has maintained their concentration (if possible), did the spell simply end when the target became invalid, or does being invalid just suppress the dominate spell, which reasserts itself once the target is once more valid, like it would in an antimagic field?

Invalid Argument foreach

Is this because of WordPress, PHP, or the Theme? (or some combination)

A client of mine has a WordPress site that’s been working just fine for years, but recently started getting the following errors pulling up in it’s sidebars:

Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /wp-content/themes/epsilon/page-threecolumn.php on line 29

Been thinking it may have to do with upgrades to both WordPress and PHP. Theme is no longer supported. Here is what the code looks like in that area:

                <div class="col-234">                     <div class="sidebar left-sidebar">                             <?php                             $  leftsidebar = simple_fields_get_post_group_values($  post->ID, "Left Sidebar", false, 2);                             foreach ($  leftsidebar as $  value) {                              ?>                             <aside>                                 <h2> <?php echo $  value[1]; ?></h2>                                 <div>                                 <?php                                     if($  value[2]):                                         if (function_exists('cforms_insert')){                                              echo cforms_insert(do_shortcode($  value[2]));                                          } else {                                              echo do_shortcode($  value[2]);                                          }                                      endif;                                 ?>                                 </div>                             </aside>                             <?php } ?>                     </div>                 </div> 

I did not build the site. And while I am proficient in pure HTML, I know little about PHP. Is this just a syntax issue that can be resolved with some quick fixes? Or do I need to go out and install a completely new theme (which scares the heck out of me)?

Java assignment declaration valid or invalid [on hold]

Question: Why are the following assignments all invalid? Please can you explain why for each individual assignment. I had thought one or two of them were okay given we imported toyPackage.

Given the classes below, indicate whether the assignments are valid or invalid. Notice that we are using two packages.

package toyPackage; public class Toy { protected int size; static int max; public static final int temp = 10; }

package experiment; import toyPackage.*;

public class Driver { public static void main(String[] args) { Toy p = new Toy(); p.size = 10; /* Invalid / p.max = 20; / Invalid / Toy.max = 30; / Invalid / Toy.temp = 40; / Invalid */ } }

What are the security implications of invalid free()?


CVE-2009-5030

OpenJPEG: Heap memory corruption leading to invalid free

The tcd_free_encode function in tcd.c in OpenJPEG 1.3 through 1.5 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) and possibly execute arbitrary code via crafted tile information in a Gray16 TIFF image, which causes insufficient memory to be allocated and leads to an “invalid free”.


What are the security implications of the invalid free? How might it be abused or exploited in a security context?

My interest in information security eventually led to an interest in computer science in general, not the other way around: always being less interested in cause than effect.

I recently began trying my hand at writing C code. It’s going alright, but still amateur at best. Many of the lower level programming concepts (e.g. heap, memory management, etc.) continue to elude me to a certain extent.

I’m not particularly interested in the specific example provided above. It’s just the most recent example (although patched long ago) to inadvertently come across my desk. Anyway, it’s a term I’m all too familiar with, from reading and writing reports, yet I have no more than a vague or abstract understanding of what it really implies. Despite the frequency of occurrence, it seems considerably neglected in the common literature. The reports for the CVE above mention remote arbitrary code execution, but it seems to be in addition to the invalid free – the relationship is unclear.

Getting error>: ‘invalid use of non-static member function’ when passing a child class method to a father (public-inherited) method

Hope everybody is doing just fine.

I’m writing this piece of code where i have a class called XZStage (child) that inherits every public method from the library/class SerialCommand (father) and on a method of the XZStage i’m passing to a father method, a child method as argument.

The error i’m getting is: ‘invalid use of non-static member function’

A little piece of advice to do a refined search would be great.

What’s the best practice for screen navigation after invalid user input?

Consider an Angular app with many user inputs over screens A, B and C. Screen C needs valid inputs from A and B; B from A only; and A is independent. Suppose while on screen B the user enters invalid inputs.

Question: What navigation should I support for B in this case?

My current thinking is to disallow navigation to C due to data validity issues. But what about navigating back to B? On the one hand, there are no validity issues, and the user may want to look up screen A to help with screen B inputs. On the other hand, this would complicate the app’s state management. An alternative is to disallow such navigation, possibly with an option to restore the last valid inputs at B. As I lack experience in UX, I’d appreciate answers to help me with this trade-off.

Booting Kernel Failed: Invalid Argument (Non-VM)

Backstory: I have been trying to install Ubuntu the last few days, but I have been facing problems. First, I had to change the File System of my Ubuntu USB and then after that I am facing this problem.

What happened?: I launched the Ubuntu Installer with my USB and then say an accessibility icon and a keyboard when booting. Right after, I saw a black screen saying “Booting Kernel Failed: Invalid Argument”. I can confirm that my install of the iso is not corrupted with qBitTorrent confirming it. Also my USB is not the problem. I used Rufus’ dd mode to install Ubuntu on the drive to keep it in FAT. Also, I tried using my USB on a Chromebook but just stated a “Graphics Initialization Problem” message. I also tried writing help and enter but it did not boot.

Mounting /cow on root failed: Invalid argument overlay mount failed

I am using an xps 13 9365, which was data wiped from bios by a friend who then gave it to me thinking it was dead. I tried booting with a USB (current LTS distro (18.04 or similar)) boot disk and got into the language selection / setup menu. By using the F6 option I selected noapic. In bios sata is set to raid and legacy the secure boot option is off.

But when I try to install I get kicked into a tiny font window with the following message

(initramfs) mount: Mounting /cow on root failed: Invalid argument overlay mount failed

Any ideas?
