Posting Short Cuts to make my Posts look more professional? [migrated]

I’m new here, but i am already addicted to reading and answering questions. I am predominantly on my phone.

What i am wondering, is how can i beef up my posts? I recently learned about using > before a line to create the yellow box effect. Are there any other simple tips and tricks to help make my posts look that much more professional??

Can a long rest immediately follow a short rest to attune to an item?

A situation recently came up in my weekly game where a PC who had just discovered a new magic item after a series of encounters took a short rest to identify the magic item’s properties. Per the DMG, this is all that is needed to identify a magic item’s properties so there’s nothing wrong with that.

The magic item required attunement, so I told him it was useless to him until he attuned with it. He asked for the rules on attunement and I told him it requires another short rest. No further short rests came up during that adventuring day, so the party decided to set up camp.

The question came up, “Can I attune during a long rest?”

I determined based on the following excerpt from the DMG that the answer to that question is no:

Attunement
Some magic items require a creature to form a bond with them before their magical properties can be used. This bond is called attunement…
Attuning to an item requires a creature to spend a short rest focused on only that item while being in physical contact with it (this can’t be the same short rest used to learn the item’s properties). This focus can take the form of weapon practice (for a weapon), meditation (for a wondrous item), or some other appropriate activity. If the short rest is interrupted, the attunement attempt fails. Otherwise, at the end of the short rest, the creature gains an intuitive understanding of how to activate any magical properties of the item, including any necessary command words…
(emphases mine)

So, naturally, the player said, “Okay, I take a short rest just before the long rest.”

Something about this really doesn’t sit well with me but I can’t find a reason in the rules for not allowing this. Obviously it’s not the intended usage of rests (short or long) based on the adventuring day, but I really didn’t have any good rationale behind disallowing the short-then-long rest.

For reference, I have included the pertinent rules relating to short rests and long rests below.

Short Rest
A short rest is a period of downtime, at least 1 hour long, during which a character does nothing more strenuous than eating, drinking, reading, and tending to wounds…

Long Rest
A long rest is a period of extended downtime, at least 8 hours long, during which a character sleeps or performs light activity: reading, talking, eating, or standing watch for no more than 2 hours. A character can’t benefit from more than one long rest in a 24-hour period…

How are short passwords not safe on the web?

On all web services that require passwords, like gmail, you are asked to set a long password. Like 8 characters or more.

The reason being higher security.

But the same services limit the number of login attempts to 3-4 tries before locking your account and asking for more info. Something which I find very annoying, but that’s another topic.

So how is a short password insecure if they limit log in attempts ? If the pw has 5 characters someone can not try all combinations in just 3 attempts.

Trouble with or statements and short circuiting

I’ve my code as follows:

class Main { public static void main(String[] args) { boolean s; boolean x = true; System.out.println(x || s); } }

I’ve learned that or statements in java short-circuit once the computer finds any value to be true. Here, I’ve declared but not initialized s, but I’ve done both with x. I put an or statement with x at the front, but the computer displays an error, citing that s hasn’t been initialized. Why’s this occurring? Shouldn’t it automatically display a true once it realizes that x is true, and satisfies the or statement? Thanks.

How to use Contact Form 7 short code value in a page?

I’m a WordPress enthusiast. I am trying to accomplish something but I haven’t found a way to.

Here’s the deal, I’m trying to use the submitted values of a form I created on contact form 7 in a script I added into the same WordPress page where the form is.

I have a script that I want to insert these values into, but when I type in the CF7 shortcode like [your-name] it comes as plain text.

How do I pass these values into shortcode I can use outside of contact form 7?
