Is there any reason the discussion is inverted in e-mail threads?

In all e-mail clients I know, when someone is responding to an e-mail, the response is written at the top, above the original e-mail.

I don’t understand the reason for this choice. It seems that:

  • For any e-mail which is long enough to require a vertical scrollbar, I have to scroll to the top before answering.

  • It makes it very awkward to read a discussion with several e-mails. I have to read a piece of text from top to bottom, then jump to the top and find the beginning of the next message.

  • It’s simply counter-intuitive. Books, scientific papers and web pages are written from top to bottom. There is no such a thing as chapter one being positioned at the end of the book, and the last chapter being at the beginning.

What would explain this original choice? I mean, since someone, around 1985, came with the idea of doing it this way, as opposed to use a usual paradigm used for existent content such as books, there was probably a good reason for that. Or was it purely technical?

Is there an open source tool to remap Command + H (hide window)

Sometimes I accidentally hit Cmd + h which hides a window. That seems to be imposed by the app, but I’m not totally sure. The OSX Keyboard Preferences doesn’t give me the ability to disable this shortcut.

I have a use case Option + h so hitting Cmd is a mistake. How can I simply remove that hotkey so I don’t lose my window? Is there an open source method, or a way to do it without installing a proprietary and closed source tool?

Is there someone reputable that can look at ModSecurity Logs? [on hold]

I have a forum and several (but not all) members are constantly being blocked. Most often, they are blocked while trying link to photos on PhotoBucket. ModSecurity shows considerable SQL Injection attacks when they try to do so.

My best Guess is that their computer is infected and each time they go to create a link on a website, some malware is injecting all that code payload to try and spread itself. Unreasonable guess?

However, these users are adamant that they have up to date virus and or malware scanners and that their computers are clean and that the issue never occurs anywhere else. These are well known members who’ve been members for many many years.

How can I be certain it’s not the server causing the problem or compromised? it’s a fresh server on Ubuntu 18.04 with updates installed once a week and running Modsecurity and Fail2ban

What I would like to find is somewhere I can get professional help. Someone who can analyze the logs and tell me for certain if the source of the Modsecurity warnings and blocks is real, or just false positives.

Is there such a place that’s reputable that can do this?

Are there any rules/pointers on the calculation of the cover a target has?

Are there any rules/pointers on the calculation of the cover a target has?

The rules on p.99 describe the four categories (light, medium, heavy & near total), but on a table top with miniatures, how can you consistently determine the cover a target has? 

… I’m GM’ing a group who are avid war gamers …

Is there such a thing as an Authenticated Protocol?

I need two devices to communicate in plain sight and I want to know what to ask for. Nothing is secret so no need to encrypt. However, I need the source to be authenticated to prevent bad actors from sending false communications. Is there a term for protocols that carry some authentication in each message which is validated on receipt and which only the sender can generate correctly?

Is there a Magento 2 Membership Extension that offers functionality similar to Amazon Prime Membership?

I have a grocery store built upon Magento 2. I am looking for a way to incorporate membership functionality that will allow the grocery stores’ premium customers to buy products at a discounted rate. (Think of Amazon Prime Membership where Prime members pay an annual fee and enjoy benefits like faster shipping, reduced product prices etc.)

Is there an extension that offers this exact functionality? I have come across a couple of extensions but found out they offer only membership “plans” functionality not what I am looking for.

Can there be instruments with attack bonuses?

I’m looking into making a Bard. While looking at subclasses in the 3rd party supplement Xanathar’s Lost Notes to Everything Else, I found that the College of Discord subclass feature Melodic Mayhem allows the character to literally use an instrument as a weapon. This makes me have to ask (mostly for pure curiosity’s sake), can there be an instrument with an attack bonus? I mean, is it possible for a DM to make (or allow a character to make) an instrument that has an attack bonus despite it being an instrument? How does that work with the rules?

To clarify, some weapons have text reading You gain a +X bonus to attack and damage rolls made with this magic weapon., so I’m wondering if an instrument can have this kind of modifier, since this Bard College can use instruments as literal weapons.

Are there infinitely many prime p, such that p=1296k^2+36k+7?

1.I want to know whether or not there are infinitely many primes p satistying gcd((p-1)/6,6)=1, such that 6 is a cubic residue mod p, but 2 and 3 are not cubic residues mod p? If there are, can we give a expression of p?

  1. I have deduced that is p=1296k^2+36k+7 is a prime, then p satisfies the above conditions. Are there infinitely many such primes?
