Can a Wizard identify the spells in another spellbook without copying them into their own?

If a Wizard finds the spellbook of the evil Wizard they discovered, how does the process of finding out which spells are in the spellbook work? (Assume the evil Wizard didn’t simply write the spells’ names in common at the top of the pages or create an index.)

  • Does the Wizard have to spend 2 hours per spell level “deciphering the unique system of notation” to be able to tell that the spell they’ve been studying is detect magic? Or can they tell at a glance that it’s detect magic before spending the 2 hours?
  • Does it require the 50gp per spell level cost just to figure out what the spell is, or do they get to choose whether to spend it after figuring out what spell it is, as part of deciding whether to copy the spell into their spellbook?

From the 5e Basic Rules, Chapter 3, pg. 31 (emphasis mine):

Copying a spell into your spellbook involves reproducing the basic form of the spell, then deciphering the unique system of notation used by the wizard who wrote it. You must practice the spell until you understand the sounds or gestures required, then transcribe it into your spellbook using your own notation. For each level of the spell, the process takes 2 hours and costs 50 gp. The cost represents material components you expend as you experiment with the spell to master it, as well as the fine inks you need to record it.

Can I retire without Trauma?

One of my players in my Blades in the Dark game was asking me some detailed questions about exactly how retirement works. According to the Stash & Retirement section on page 43,

When you mark your character’s final trauma and they retire, the amount of coin they’ve managed to stash away determines their fate. Your stash tracker is on your character sheet.

This implies to me that the only way a scoundrel can retire is through accumulating enough trauma to need to leave the crew. Can a scoundrel retire before that point? If a scoundrel accumulates 40 Stash, and decides to leave the crimesman life before filling their Trauma, can they?

Capture printer spool file without interrupting physical printing?

We are trying to troubleshoot a printing issue where a print job will randomly repeat a portion of a print job. These print jobs are generated using 3rd party software and we’ve looked top to bottom through the logs (with help of their tech support) and can’t see any sign of print jobs, or the content therein, repeating.

Normally we would spit out a spool file and analyze that, but everything I see online involves pausing physical printing to grab the raw spool file. This causes some issues because the problem is so intermittent that we need to capture the spool file without interrupting currently printing jobs.

Is there a way to do this, perhaps through some existing software? Could we create some sort of link or reference to the spoolfile that duplicates everything to a separate folder? (Not sure if that is even a real thing that can be done) The server we are using runs Windows 2012 R2

How to use ‘access callback’ => TRUE drupal 7 in drupal 8 to access all parameter in url without page not found

'access callback' => TRUE in Drupal 7 can access all parameter. Example:

$  items['hello']

I have a problem when I migrate custom module in drupal 7 to drupal 8. In drupal 7 'access callback' => TRUE but how can I use this in Drupal 8?
