[ Personal Finance ] Open Question : Should I let my in-laws buy my house and carry the note instead of just going through a regular refinance?

I am have great credit (785) and am currently in the early stages of refinancing (rate not locked but looking like 3,5% fixed 30 yr) I called my father and law (and his realtor fiance) just out of due diligence to see if they thought this was a good rate considering the clients they’ve seen purchase homes recently. They said it sounded pretty competitive and so I pulled the trigger with the mortgage company. Now today They called and said they were talking and think they would like to buy the house, and carry the note for us at the same interest rate and terms, but also with the option for 10-20k cash out if we want it. I wasn’t really looking for this and am not sure what to make of it. They said they were looking for somewhere to invest some money they recently made and thought it would be a win-win. I’m not sure. I trust their motives financially, but I worry about them divorcing later, or implied favors (none implied as of yet). I suppose there’s always the possibility of them being very generous with the payments or sale of the house down the road, but that’s also definitely not a given. Sounds like the same deal either way for me, but with the possibility of ugly family stuff down the road. Is there an angle I’m not seeing here?

Add customer note using order number on the admin backend

I am new to WordPress Plugin Development.

What I want:

To add a customer note using order number using php in the admin backend custom plugin.

What I know:

That we need to use WC_Order class and $ order->add_order_note().

What I cannot figure out:

How do I use the WC_Order class in the custom php page to get order details?(Do I really need to use this class? If so, then how do I use it in the php page of my custom plugin?)

In short I want to add a customer note by just using the Order Number and also get Order Status if possible.

Edit 1:

This is my plugin php code:

<div class="wrap">          <form method="POST" >           <input placeholder="Enter 3-digit Order Number" type="number" name="orderNumber"  maxlength="3">           <button class="button" value="Submit" onclick="Submit" >Add Customer Note</button>         </form>    <?php     wp_enqueue_style('wim_styles');     $  order_id= $  _POST['orderNumber'];     $  order = wc_get_order($  order_id);     echo "Order is ".$  order."order number is ".$  order_id." Status is ";     $  note = __("This is my note's text…");     $  order->add_order_note( $  note);     echo "Added note to order number:".$  order_id; ?> 

This throws following error:

Uncaught Error: Call to a member function add_order_note(). What am I doing wrong here? Please guide.

How do I find out who wrote a note?

So I’m playing in a campaign right now, and my party has just received a threatening letter that was left in their dining room stuck to the wall with a dagger. We don’t know the writers actual name, which is what we’re trying to find out.

Currently we consist of:

  • Human Cleric 5
  • Aasimar Shaman 5
  • Elf Unchained Sumoner 5
  • Human Cavalier 5
  • Ifrit Unchained Rogue 3/AntiPaladin 2

What spells/abilities/skills can we use to determine who left it? I’ve already thought of the spell Scrying, and we were able to pick up a scroll of it at the local temple, but we weren’t able to test it out before the end of the last session, so I’m looking for backup options.

How to display a user’s note after form submit?

After a form submission I display the user’s submitted data, but I struggle with showing an optional note.

This is how I display it when it wasn’t filled:

enter image description here

And this is how I currently display it with given data:

enter image description here

This does not only look really bad, it also implies that it’s an input which is not exactly userfriendly.
It’s only suppose is to display the user’s data again.

I also tried without the outline, but it looks as bad.

How can/should I display the user’s note to look good and userfriendly?

My Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Doesn’t Show an “Allow USB Debugging?” Prompt. Is there a fix?

Around this morning, I had the idea to transfer all my whatsapp chats(from android to ios)

Not so complicated, right?

Well, I was in for a rude awakening. Not only did I spend literally 7 hours trying to fix it… I couldn’t fix it!

That’s basically why I’m reaching out to you. My last hope. My knight in shining armor.

Here are the more technical details:

  • Before you say it, and I know you will, I’ll tell you – I restarted my phone about 10 million times
  • I’ve enabled and disabled usb debugging around 10 million times minus 1.
  • I haven’t played with adb so I don’t screw with my android system. However if that’s necessary, I’ll do what must be done.
  • I’m specifically using my own samsung galaxy note 8 since I previously tried on another phone(LG v20) and it didn’t work either.

So, I must ask you, are you up to this challenge? Can you fix what seems unfixable?

P.s. Here’s a preview of what should be showing up on my own android device but is not:

How to make AppleScript ignore escape characters in string to make a Note

I have a python script that takes a user’s input and inserts it into the name and body parameter of the make new note apple script. The problem is that any escape or special characters get interpreted by applescript. I want all strings to be treated as raw and to ignore all escape characters and things like :\//tft// without giving me a Expected “"” but found unknown token. error

The line of python looks like this:

cmd = "osascript -e 'tell application \"Notes\" \n tell account \"iCloud\" \n make new note at folder \"Notes\" with properties {name:\"%s\", body:\"%s\"} \n end tell \n end tell'" % (header, body) 

… where header and body are the user supplied strings.

But for manual testing I use the Script Editor to quickly reproduce the error.

tell application "Notes"   tell account "iCloud"     make new note at folder "Notes" with properties {name:"myname", body:"c:\test\test.txt"}   end tell end tell 

This particular note ends up looking like this:

enter image description here

I know that I can use \ instead of \ but I don’t want users to have to sanitize all their input as they could be copy pasting from a large body of text. Think of a log file or paste-bin style body of text.

Is there a way to programmatically sanitize the user’s input?
