Can’t find recently edited numbers file nor the folder the file was in

I have an iMac running High Sierra. I created a spreadsheet in Numbers a couple of months ago. I have been updating it a few times each week. Last edit was this month a couple of times. The Numbers file was stored in a folder named finance. When I tried to edit it yesterday, Saturday, I couldn’t find the file nor the folder. I tried searching for the file and found a couple of files with the same name but they were older copies. I started the Numbers app and tried the “open recent” option in the file menu. I again found a couple of files with the correct name but they were the older files mentioned earlier.

What could have happened to the file and folder? I suppose I may have accidently deleted them. Is there any way to tell? If I deleted them do I need a 3rd party app to try and recover them?

Magento 1.9 Recently viwed products not displaying

<?php echo $  this->getLayout()->createBlock('reports/product_viewed')->setTemplate('reports/product_viewed.phtml')->toHtml(); ?> 

This code suppose to output the recently viewed products on category page or product page (by inserting the code in .phtml files). and this has been always working for me on my Magento sites.

However I have experienced that for one site (Magento, this code isn’t working at all. and for this site, the widget to show recently viewed product doesn’t work either.

Any ideas what can cause the “recently viewed products” isn’t working?

Create triggers on recently programmatically copied Google Forms

I have this main Form that uses its responses to create several other Forms after it’s been submitted, but I need that these Forms that were recently created to send emails on their submissions without needing to edit manually each of their individual scripts.

Is there anyway I could do this using only the code and events from the main Form that triggers the creation of all those other forms?

What steps should I take to ensure there are no unpleasant surprises in a recently purchased home?

After buying a house from another party (i.e. not new construction) what steps should I take to ensure the previous residents have not left behind anything unpleasant for me?

I’m not worrying about booby traps or anything of that sort, but rather surveillance equipment or physical security backdoors.

I’m already planning on changing the locks, but what other steps should I take to limit any unpleasantness from the previous owners.

Should non-existant files in a recently used files list be deleted without user prompt?

Say, you have this common thing of “recently used files” or “frequently used files” in your application.

It may easily happen the user moves or deletes a file they had opened recently/frequently. So what happens, now, if the user clicks on that file in your recently/frequently used list…?

  1. They should obviously get some feedback/notice that the file is not there anymore.
  2. Now, here, is the question: Should the application also automatically delete the file that it could not found from the list?


Some ideas I have about this:

  • (+) Pro: The entry is absolutely useless, as a user can never open such a file anymore, anyway. It takes valuable space away if it stays there.
  • (–) Contra: In some cases a file can only be temporary deleted. While on Android this may e.g. never be the case, this can happen with network shares (think of FTP or samba or so) or so on desktop systems. In such a case the user may just be offline and a file can be opened later anyway.
    On the other hand, an application can blacklist these things. (from looking at the file path)
  • (+) Prompt: A user could also be prompted whether the file should be deleted. However, if the file is really gone, this may really not be useful in any way, as it’s just another click and possibly obvious?
    • (-) Contra prompt: Confirmation prompts are usually not considered the best UX pattern, so actually an “undo” feature would make sense here. But how can this be accomplished in this case without totally confusing the user? (note we also need to do 1. to notify the user about the fact that the file could not be found…)
  • (-) Only manual deletion: We could also not automate that at all, and only let the user click on an “x” or so next to each entry, so they can delete it manually. However, IMHO this is quite lame as – while the feature may independently be useful/needed anyway – in the case when the file is gone, we can totally be clever as an application and at least offer the user to automatically delete it. Why should users first interpret our error message, think and then appropriately react by manually deleting the (correct) entry? (I guess this is “hard” and I doubt many users would even do so, which again could “accumulate” “broken” entries in our list.)

Dual Citizen. Exited the US on Italian passport recently

I have a quick question. I’m a dual US/Italian citizen and before my most recent trip to the US I had always used my US passport to enter and exit the US when going there. This year I decided to also get an Italian passport as proof of my EU citizenship since I live in the EU (only had an ID card before). Now not being familiar with how to travel with two passports, when I checked-in at the self-service kiosks at the airport in the US on my date of departure I used my Italian passport instead of my US one (which made sense to me at the time). I did use my US one to get in the country, but I’ve read that one must use their US passport to both enter and leave the country. Are there consequence I am going to face for this? Is there any way to correct my departure information from the US with the authorities? Any help is appreciated, thank you.

How do miners know how to remove recently confirmed transactions?

A miner is in the process of creating and mining a block of 1400 transactions. Suddenly they receive a broadcast that a new block was confirmed with 200 of the transactions currently in that miner’s block. How does a miner proceed in this scenario – dropping the 200 and adding 200 others from the mempool and trying to mine a block?

In a second scenario, two blocks are created almost at the same time and they each have some of the same and some different transactions. I’m assuming (a) that there is then a race to consensus for each and the first to 51% wins a confirmation. If so, then similar to above (b) the block with losing transactions has all the dissimilar transactions dumped back in the mempool. But what if a second chain surfaces with two blocks? Now all the confirmations in (a) that aren’t confirmed in this second block get dumped back into the mempool and hopefully finally mined into the blockchain?

The takeway for me >>> Obviously this system does work since its very popular! But it seems that transactions can take a very long time and no way to really guarantee that they will occur unless a payor decides to pay a high fee to almost confirm that miners will pay attention to his transactions first and most will include that transaction into the miner’s next block to add to the chain.
