Does True Seeing automatically detect the illusions from Weird? [duplicate]

This question already has an answer here:

  • What counts as a “visual illusion” for a character that has Truesight? 1 answer

The weird spell creates illusions in the minds of those it is cast upon (unless they make their save).

The true seeing spell gives truesight, which grants the automatic detection of visual illusions and saves against them automatically succeed.

Do the illusions created by weird qualify for this though?

The illusions the spell creates are visible to the targets, but only to them. They aren’t visible in the classic sense like those produced by certain other illusion spells like minor illusion.

Do the sanity loss cap rules apply to seeing dead bodies?

Do the sanity loss cap rules apply to seeing corpses?

The rules for sanity loss state that once an investigator have suffered the maximum sanity loss for seeing a mythos creature, any further loss is negated. For instance, if they see a ghoul (sanity loss 1/1d6) and lose 4 points, any more ghouls encountered can only result in 2 more points of sanity loss. Once that max loss is reached, the investigator will suffer no more loss from seeing ghouls.

So, does the same cap apply for other sanity loss sources? If they see one dead body and take the max loss of 3 points, then later come upon a dump-truck full of corpses will they suffer more sanity loss? Or do they build up the same sanity loss resistance described for mythos creatures?

How does DNS over TLS prevent your ISP from seeing the websites you visit?

For example, I’m using DNS over TLS in Android Pie. This happens:

  1. I visit a website (google.com).

  2. I send a DNS query to the DNS server, and the response is the IP address of google.com. The ISP knows I contacted the DNS server, but doesn’t know the query or the response.

  3. Next, I connect to the IP of google.com. The ISP knows I contacted google.com’s IP now.

And yet, news articles (and some questions in this site) says that the ISP won’t see the websites you visit if you use DNS over TLS. Am I missing something here?

Travelling And Seeing the Pantanals

So there’s 4 of us who will be travelling to Brazil in August next year. I aim to stay in Sao Paolo or Rio but the decision depends on how you guys advise me!

The aim is to spend 5 days in the Pantanals and then the rest would be trekking round Brazil.

My query is – Where is the best place to stay to get to the Pantanals? By looks of it we would need a flight going from either Sao Paolo/Rio to Cuiba?

Also, are there any tour activities you would recommend. Preferably one all inclusive at decent prices!

Any help is appreciated 🙂

Application only seeing half the threads available on dual-processor machine

We recently acquired a dual-processor Dell workstation, equipped with two Xeon 6138 Gold CPUs. Each CPU has 20 physical cores (40 logical cores), so there is a total of 40 physical cores or 80 logical cores.

Both Linux Fedora and Windows 10 Professional are installed on this machine using a dual-boot setup. Note that I have not installed this machine myself.

The Windows task manager correctly displays 80 logical cores. These 80 cores are also available on Linux when looking under /proc.

When running PBRT (https://www.pbrt.org/) on Linux, the application correctly uses (and saturates) 80 cores.

On Windows, however, the process only uses 40 logical cores out of 80. I haven’t checked, but I am pretty sure that PBRT uses std::thread::hardware_concurrency(), which is a good way to determine the number of cores. If I force PBRT to use 80 threads thanks to a command line option, the Windows task manager does not show that all cores are saturated. Only half of them are. It seems a single Windows process cannot use all 80 logical cores to me.

Is this a limitation of Windows? This is surprising.

Am I supposed to install a specific version of Windows to make sure all cores are available to a single process?

Drush not “seeing” Drupal installation

I have a drupal installation running in a vagrant virtual machine. This works fine, but when I try to use Drush on this site I get very peculiar behavior. The modules that are listed when I run “drush pm-list” are all from a non-existent Drupal 8 installation. I have tried setting –root= and –uri= but to no avail. Drush simply ignores my real Drupal 7 installation and instead outputs non-existent modules from a non-existent installation??

Seeing Big Movement

I have just noticed that datacenters
-ab: 216.239.51.99
-ab: 216.239.51.103
-ab: 216.239.51.104
-kr: 66.102.11.104
-ab: 216.239.51.105
-ab: 216.239.51.147
and all the "New" datacenters

are showing drastically different results.

I don't know if this is an old cache or new changes.
