I’m seeing strange names in my list of docker containers, is someone having fun at docker or is that from hackers?

I’m trying to run a docker and it fails for various reasons. As I check my list of dockers (docker ps -a), I see those names:

pedantic_gauss recursing_feynman adoring_brattain suspicious_tesla gallant_gates competent_gates elated_davinci ecstatic_mahavira focused_mirzakhani 

I use docker-compose and I’m sure we do not have such names in our setup files. Is that just something docker people thought would be fun to do?! I searched on some of those names and could not really find anything useful, although it looks like these appear on many sites, somewhat sporadically.

does the true seeing spell modify your actual sight, or give you a second sight?

The reason this matters is for determining another question: Can a creature under the effect of the true seeing spell see a creature under the effect of nondetection inside magical darkness?

True seeing reads:

This spell gives the willing creature you touch the ability to see things as they actually are. For the duration, the creature has truesight, notices secret doors hidden by magic, and can see into the Ethereal Plane, all out to a range of 120 feet.

As such it apparently gives the creature truesight (by means of divination magic). So the creature is granted a new sense, but is the use of that sense mutually exclusive to the use of their normal sight?

Can a creature under the effect of the true seeing spell see a creature under the effect of nondetection inside magical darkness?

As explained in this thread: Do Nondetection and Invisibility protect you from True Seeing? Nondetection would hide an invisible character from being seen by a creature under the effect of the true seeing (though not natural truesight). I am framing my question with the context that true seeing is included among the divination magic that nondetection hides creatures from.

With said my question is this: can someone with true seeing cast on them see someone in darkness with nondetection.

To answer this appropriately I feel an answer must consider this: does the true seeing spell modify your actual sight, or give you a second sight?

Are there any other practical reasons for choosing proficiency in Intelligence saving throws, other than seeing through illusions?

Are there any other practical reasons for choosing proficiency in Intelligence saving throws, other than seeing through illusions?

It was suggested to me to take the Resilient feat. I considered taking Intelligence, but I can only think back to a handful of occasions where I used an Intelligence saving throws and it was always to do with illusion magic.


Choose one ability score. You gain the following benefits:

  • Increase the chosen ability score by 1, to a maximum of 20.

  • You gain proficiency in saving throws using the chosen ability.

(PHB p. 168)

I mean, other than to have a better chance of seeing through an illusion spell, is there any point in having a proficiency with Intelligence saving throws?

It seems like it is the least useful out of all the saving throws proficiencies.

Dexterity, Wisdom and Constitution get used the most; Strength and Charisma less so, but Intelligence…

Of course, if you are in a campaign where illusions are very common, then yes I can see how this could be very beneficial, but for most campaigns I can’t see the point.

Are there any other uses for the Intelligence saving throw, such as to counter a monster’s special ability (other than an illusion)?

This is a question about saving throws, not ability checks.

How did Stuxnet prevent the user from seeing the malicious files on a USB stick?

From what I can tell there were two main TMP files present on the infected USB stick. The smaller of the two would run first and hook various functions related to viewing files so as to hide the LNK and TMP files.

While this was happening would it not raise suspicions? Someone would view the USB stick, see the six files and then they would just disappear?

Why Am I Seeing Adverts When Using Mobile Data?

I was looking at an https page on my phone within the house via my home wifi network.

I turned off wifi and switched to mobile data and when I refreshed the page, suddenly there were adverts on the page. Worse still, some were targeted based on previous search history.

When I switched back to wifi and refreshed the page, the adverts went away.

Is my mobile carrier injecting adverts into my mobile browsing?

How does that work when the page is https?

Am I overreacting or seeing things where they don’t exist?

I am a new D&D player and was having a blast playing with my friends. We are all new to this, including our GM, and it’s been so much fun. When we do critical hits, he plays a Power Ranger-like song and we all celebrate with this silly dance.

Anyway, I liked it so much that I reached out for a new group so I could play more. I did find a new one that was currently in progress and the story that was presented to me as a brief discord pinned text was something like: there’s a church order that exist to maintain order in the world and fight against evil.

Seeing this description and that the group that I was entering (there are like, 3 groups that share a common world) had no healing source, I decided to make a cleric to heal them. My boyfriend, who is also new to the game, made an Elf wizard.

The GM then gave me an important letter to deliver to some city and to stop by in a small village that the other players happen to be there. I was attacked and eventually we all met each other. Long story short, they were two tieflings and a barbarian. My boyfriend dropped unconscious and the barbarian stole his items, the tieflings despised me for being anti-christ or something like that, almost tried to kill me. The DM then made a demon appear on some church and told the other players that all that fight was happening because of something that I was carrying, which was the letter that I had to send to the other city. The barbarian took the letter from me and read that the church was going to kill those who were not pure blood in the church or something like that. I actually thought that was a cool way to put the story together, from the game perspective. The demon then asked if they would join their side which they accepted without much hesitation.

Now, please, enlighten me.
My first reflection was that those guys were playing selfishly. My boyfriend did get healed by one of them but he didn’t got his stolen crossbow back. They even stole his robe. We all just met that day and maybe I was expecting more… group behaviour, you know? I had this assumption that we were bonding as a group and should do stuff together.

Anyway, should I have just told something like “you know what? forget that I’m actually good and let’s just go to the demon side, even though I’m only alive because of the church” and tell my bf just to put those acts of stealing all in the past, that we should move on to carry on with the group.

I even tried to stop them from stealing from him, but they threw an axe next to me and they were all lvl 3.

There were 2 DMS, one was watching so he could help the group later. After the session, they kinda congratulated the barbarian because of her roleplay. I felt I was in a harsh position for my character to do anything at all and I just couldn’t imagine get going after what they did to my BF. He seemed actually less upset than myself but I found that extremely disrespectful. How we are supposed to play in a group if we are not a group? Two of the players were new to the game as well.

I couldn’t actually look at them with the same eyes after the session too. I mean, to some degree (and most of it) you ARE your character, right?

Needless to say I got really frustrated by this experience and thought that RPG was just fun because I was doing with my friends in the first place… we all share loot, gold, experience… on my first group, we had to feed people to a demon and there’s a girl who is good and she couldn’t stand it so she just didn’t look, because it was our only way of leaving the dungeon.

I am pretty confused right now… would you guys kindly give me some clarification?

If a feature occurs “after seeing the roll, but before knowing whether it hits or misses” what happens on a critical hit/miss?

This is inspired by the recent question: “Can I use the Enchantment wizard's Instinctive Charm feature after seeing the die roll?” where this is mentioned at the end, but to avoid having multiple things going on there at once I thought it would be a good idea to ask this separately.

There are many features in the game that occur “after seeing the roll, but before knowing whether it hits or misses”, for example, the Bard’s Combat Inspiration states:

[…] When an attack roll is made against the creature, it can use its reaction to roll the Bardic Inspiration die and add the number rolled to its AC against that attack, after seeing the roll but before knowing whether it hits or misses […]

I would like answers here to assume that the player is told the actual number that appears on the die, this is supported in the in the following Q/A:

  • Does Combat Inspiration require the GM to announce attack roll totals?
  • How much does a bard know when they decide to use Cutting Words?

What I’m wondering is when using a feature like Combat Inspiration, what happens when the GM announces that the roll was a 1, or a 20? Does this mean you “know whether it hit or missed” and thus can’t use the feature?

“Instinctive charm” timing question: can I use it after seeing the die roll?

Multiple abilities can be used “after seeing the roll, but before knowing whether it hits or misses” (examples: Cutting Words and Combat Inspiration).

However, in the case of the Enchantment Wizard’s level 6 ability Instinctive Charm, the text says that “you use this feature before knowing whether the attack hits or misses”. There is no mention of “seeing the roll”.

Do I get to see the attack roll before using Instinctive Charm?

Assuming I do get to see the roll and it is a critical hit (natural 20), can I still get to use Instinctive Charm? Or do I “know” the attack hits because it is a critical, and hence can’t use the ability?
