Trouble diagnosing an AdSense Viewability / Active View issue

I’m having a viewability issue with a vertical Adsense placement (300×600 and under).

It’s a pretty standard above-the-fold, right column placement. The top of the placement starts around 200 px from the top of the browser window, so it’s a very visible placement. Easily the most visible on the site for desktop users.

The placement is hidden in mobile (by hiding the parent per current AdSense regulations) and doesn’t serve to mobile devices. (This is tested and confirmed, btw… so that’s not the issue).

The placement is currently scoring a meager 30% Active View in AdSense reports, which means it’s serving and not being seen — a lot.

Where else should I be looking to diagnose this problem? I’m pretty sure the viewability issue is negatively impacting RPM.

The site has excellent traction, with over 6 ppv and an average pageview time of nearly 1 minute. The bounce rate is a very healthy 33%. The CWV on the page are all healthy (Rather, as healthy as can be expected with a site running AdSense).

Anyone familiar with viewability / active view issues? Any thoughts on where else the issue could lie?


Google Analytics: View filter not picking up any traffic

I have created a new view (a copy of the main one) and set a filter as follows:

enter image description here

However, if I visit any URL with that inside of it, nothing gets picked up on the real-time view. However it does get picked up on the main view, where there are no filters.

I can’t click on the verify link as it’s saying the service isn’t available

Any ideas?

Where does elementor stores the data from the content that is created from the frontend view? [closed]

I am trying to change a value/text in an inner section created by elementor page builder plugin that exists on around 400 pages. I have edited the database (wp_posts) with the right values but it’s not changed on the front end. The values are still the old values on the pages. It almost seems like something is being cached somewhere, but I do not have any caching currently enabled.

If I completely disable elementor and elementor pro. The correct values are shown. If I re-enable elementor the old incorrect values are shown again.

Does anyone know where does elementor stores the data from the content that is created from the frontend view? In the database (where?) in files? (where?) Thanks so much!!

Password entry: are “paste from password manager” and “eyeball to view passwords” mutually-exclusive features?


NIST SP 800-63b gives the following guidance for password forms (aka login pages):

Verifiers SHOULD permit claimants to use “paste” functionality when entering a memorized secret. This facilitates the use of password managers, which are widely used and in many cases increase the likelihood that users will choose stronger memorized secrets.

In order to assist the claimant in successfully entering a memorized secret, the verifier SHOULD offer an option to display the secret — rather than a series of dots or asterisks — until it is entered. This allows the claimant to verify their entry if they are in a location where their screen is unlikely to be observed. The verifier MAY also permit the user’s device to display individual entered characters for a short time after each character is typed to verify correct entry. This is particularly applicable on mobile devices.

I had the argument made to me that these two features should not be implemented together because they would allow a user to circumvent a password manager’s protection and view the auto-populated password. I suspect this argument won’t hold water, but I’m curious about community opinions.

Why is my view selecting hundreds of duplicates?

This view selects 696 entries. The CSV file has 48 entries.

CREATE OR REPLACE VIEW insert_3_char_abts AS SELECT     ext.construct_id,     n_term,     enz_name,     c_term,     cpp,     mutations,     ext.g_batch,     ext.p_batch,     emptycol,          c_batch,     abts5_mean,     abts5_SD,     abts5_n,     abts5_method,     abts5_study_id,     abts7_mean,     abts7_SD,     abts7_n,     abts7_method,     abts7_study_id,     pur.pk_purified_enz_id FROM EXTERNAL ((        construct_id NUMBER(10),       n_term VARCHAR2 (50),       enz_name VARCHAR2 (50),       c_term VARCHAR2 (50),       cpp VARCHAR2 (50),       mutations VARCHAR2 (50),       g_batch VARCHAR2 (50),       p_batch VARCHAR2 (50),       emptycol VARCHAR2(50),        c_batch VARCHAR2 (50),       abts5_mean NUMBER (5, 2),       abts5_SD NUMBER (5, 2),       abts5_n NUMBER (3),       abts5_method VARCHAR2 (50),       abts5_study_id VARCHAR2 (8),       abts7_mean NUMBER (5, 2),       abts7_SD NUMBER (5, 2),       abts7_n NUMBER (3),       abts7_method VARCHAR2 (50),       abts7_study_id VARCHAR2 (8))            TYPE ORACLE_LOADER     DEFAULT DIRECTORY data_to_input     ACCESS PARAMETERS (         RECORDS DELIMITED BY NEWLINE          SKIP 1         BADFILE bad_files:'badflie_view_before_insert_char_abts.bad'         FIELDS TERMINATED BY ',' OPTIONALLY ENCLOSED BY '"'         MISSING FIELD VALUES ARE NULL          )      LOCATION ('CHAR_ABTS.CSV')     REJECT LIMIT UNLIMITED) ext  INNER JOIN purified_enz pur ON ext.p_batch = pur.p_batch INNER JOIN produced pr  ON pr.pk_produced_id = pur.fk_produced_id; ; 

If I finish this statement with

AND pr.fk_construct_id = ext.construct_id; 

It selects 46 out of 48 records, which is better, but not great.

Algorithm for drawing the horizon given the current coordinates, elevation and field of view

I have a large database containing coordinates along with an elevation number. If I am a person looking in some direction (0-360) with an n degree field of view, and located at some coordinate and at some elevation, how can I generate an image representing the horizon? What algorithm should I use?

Is letting a player use a Large or larger race a bad idea from the game balance point of view?

Pathfinder ruleset assumes players to be Medium or Small humanoids. Not so many rules exist for non-standard characters.

  • The only "official" way to play as a bigger dude that I know of is using race building rules. With explicit DM permission, it’s possible to create an 11-RP race that will be Large and still have the reach of a Medium/Small creature. Also, this race probably won’t fit into the world of Golarion unless you work for it.
  • Bestiary creatures that are Large or Larger typically have racial Hit Dice, and I’ve heard it many times that mixing racial and class HD for players is generally a bad idea.
  • Some monstrous humanoids, e.g. Trox, have official racial stats and are Large, but playing them is usually frowned upon, as their appearance creates certain social difficulties unless the campaign is set in a monstrous setting.
  • Half-Giants published by Dreamscarred Press are up to 8 ft. 4 in. tall, but still Medium. They are treated as being Large for certain purposes, but not for reach, although they can use Large weapons.

Threads about PCs being Large usually bring up all the related bonuses: CMD/CMB, reach, extra damage, extra STR, and say that it all makes such races vo. Very often they also talk about Enlarge Person alongside Haste creating Huge Barbarians that one-shot everything they see, and about enemies that can’t even retaliate because of limited reach. What makes me a bit interested here, though, is that it’s usually mundane characters who benefit most from increasing their melee potential, and melee characters are rarely overpowered compared to casters.

However, lacking any first-hand experience, I wish to know:

Is it actually a bad idea to allow players to choose Large races for their characters?

By "Large races" I mean races that are properly Large, have all the related benefits, including reach. This race can be custom-made, adapted from another source, or an existing one can be used.

Please remember about the Good Subjective/Bad Subjective guidelines and state your experience of seeing Large or larger races in actual play if you decide to post an answer. Let’s not get this question closed.

Postgresql: Refreshing materialized view fails with “No space left on device” and a huge spike in disk usage

I have a materialized view that refreshes every five minutes. The SQL aggregates the data among many tables with over 800k rows in each.

However, the when using the "REFRESH MATERIALIZED VIEW CONCURRENTLY tableName", the query runs for about an hour and then complains: ERROR: could not write block 39760692 of temporary file: No space left on device

It should be noted that this 39760692 changes every time I execute the query.

The disk size is about 960 GB and the database size is about 30 GB. So the disk has a free space of about 930 GB.

I noticed that when running the refresh query, there is a huge spike in the disk usage of about 12GB per minute and then finally the query errors out with no space error when it hits the 960 GB mark. Immediately, the disk usage is back to 30GB from the abnormal growth.

I even tried the REFRESH MATERIALIZED VIEW tableName (without concurrently) and seeing the same behavior.

I’m not sure what can be done here to diagnose the problem.

Can I view the format history of a usb key?

Is there a way to view when changes were made to a USB key, such as when the USB key was formatted and/or when some files were transferred?

I have seen this previous stackexchange question File system history on USB drives, but it wasnt clear if anywhere on the USB key a log will be available.

NB. I only have the USB key at hand.
