Are there maneuver options for non-combat skills?

My GURPS GM complains that the PCs put a point or two in most skills, except for combat skills which get 10-20% of our character points. Aside from the fact that he asks us to make more combat checks than all the other skill checks combined, I’m convinced that part of why we do this is because there are more things to do with high combat scores. I like rolling against a 13 or 14. That’s where most of my skills end up. My weapons skills are usually around 20, so I’ll make a deceptive attack or a head shot or something, bringing the target down to a 13 or 14. There are enough combat maneuvers that apply a penalty that it’s fun and interesting to have a high stat, which enables us to use those maneuvers.

Do non-combat maneuvers exist in GURPS? If so, where can I find them? Will they let me take a -4 to my Carousing skill in order to gain some benefit if successful? And, just for speculation’s sake, might they help my group find reasons to justify putting more points in non-combat skills?

Mysql: Any way to properly index 3 ENUM columns with the same options ? (A OR B OR C)

I have 3 enum() columns with the same option values inside.
I first tried to use the "set" datatype which originally was meant to do that (hold multiple values from a set) but it seems that datatype isn’t managed for 15+ years and isn’t even supporting an index.
Is there a nice way to index those 3 columns so I can use them in searched without destroying query performance ?

SELECT * FROM TABLE WHERE a=’x’ OR b=’x’ OR c=’x’

I thought about creating a virtual field which uses a boolean logic (&) on the 3 enum field-numbers and combines them into a large number but that’s quite a hack and not nice to maintain.

Has someone solved this sort of task elegantly ? (I do not want to use a support table and JOIN it, I want to stay with a single table)

Healing options for non magic users

Three members of our party want to leave but one of them is a cleric who is our healer. Since we are levelling up to level 4 we could take on feats and there is the feat of Healer or of Magic Initiate, the latter allowing us to learn a first level healing spell.

What would be the best option or are there any other options to replace our healer?

Submiting with problems on one of the options php wprdpress

Hello I having a strange behavior with a simple submit in a page that has to fill some data from 2 inputs. Basically everytime i try inserting without values it insert, if i try and put ‘teste1’ it inserts but it doesnt insert anything than that values more.

down i have the code im using:

        if (isset($  _POST['addit'])) {     $  wpdb->insert($  table_name, array(         'names' => $  _POST['name'],         'descriptions' => $  _POST['description']     )); } elseif(isset($  _POST['deleteit'])) {         if ($  _POST['deleteid']) {             $  wpdb->delete($  table_name, array('id'=>$  _POST['deleteid']));         } } $  categories = $  wpdb->get_results($  sql); 

this is only happening in a specific tempalate i created on wordpress and not in the others that have a similar constrution. Already tried recreating the page, configuring a new page. One more thing its strange, every time i put some other string, it goes to the standard 404 wordpress page. Any Thought?

Best Regards

Understanding Logging Priority & Options in Oracle DB

From my understanding once we switch on database logging, the entire DB goes into logging mode and generates redo logs.

I want to categorically exclude/include some tables/tablespaces from this logging as they are not required for recovery incase of failures.

Is there any priority on the logging options and to exclude certain tables/tablespaces from logging so as to reduce some of the traffic going to redo logs.

Address finder for website, cheap/budget options for the UK

Hi All,

This is my first post and I have no web design or HTML experience so please excuse the naive nature of this question. I'm building a website with my friend and we require a postcode or address finder for the UK (initially). It's a very common functionality on many different websites but on researching the topic, I was surprised most of the APIs like Postcodes.io, Adressian, getaddress – charge by number of searches made. Now don't get me wrong, they're entitled to charge for these…

Does the Monstrous Combat Options rule of breath weapons scaling with creature size apply to PC’s?

While discussing build options with a fellow party member (an Alchemist), they mentioned a rule granting breath weapons increased area when the user increases size category. After a bit of searching, I was able to find the rule in question:

Breath Weapon: The monster gains a breath weapon that deals 1d6 points of damage + 1d6 per CR. A target can attempt a Reflex saving throw to take half damage. If the breath weapon is a cone, it’s 30 feet long, increasing by 10 feet for each size category above Medium, and decreasing by 5 feet for every size category below Medium. If the breath weapon is a line, its area of effect is twice as long as a cone would be.

However, said rule was located in a section about monster creation/advancement, and now we’re debating whether or not it applies to PC’s changing size due to spells or buffs. Is there any other RAW indication whether or not gaining or losing a size category would generally affect breath weapon areas in this manner, or would this ultimately be a matter of GM fiat?

How to stop Google search, by using “noindex” and “nofollow,” from offering options to private pages on a website

I have a family history website, call it "my_family.com". The primary file, index.php, has some introductory remarks of explanation and an html form into which one puts the website’s password (there’s a single password used by all family members). If one runs "my_family.com" and inserts the correct password and clicks on the "Submit" button, the php code in the file takes you to the first of several html files — call it "first.html," which gives one links to further html files. All of these files contain family trees, copies of letters, photos, reminiscences, obituaries, etc., and none of which should be available to non-family-members. I soon found out found that if one put the phrase "my_family.com" into the Google search window (whether on computer of smartphone), one got a list of options, not just a Login option but about eight to ten 3-4 word excerpts from html files on the website; and if one clicked on any of these latter options, one bypassed the password process and was taken directly to other files on the website, i.e., files that should never be publicly revealed.
What I’ve done to avoid such access is to create a cookie in the original index.php file. If the user inserts the correct password, the cookie is set to "passwordCorrect" Each subsequent html file then checks whether the cookie has that value before the user is allowed to move on Putting in the cookies has solved the problem of public access, but nevertheless a Google search still shows the 3-4 word excerpts. I have tried to stop Google search from doing this by putting into the header section of first.html: ”” (without the outer quotes). But that has been in the file for about three weeks and has proved useless. I tried using Google Search Console to get Google to make an early "crawl" of the file my_family.com, but am frustrated by the lack of examples about how to use it, and don’t think I succeeded. Maybe I should be asking for a crawl of the file my_family.com/first.html, instead of the basic my_family.com website? I’d appreciate any advice anyone has about this. For example, how do I determine when the last crawl was, when can I expect the next crawl, is the meta tag in the correct file, etc? Thanks
