dnd 5e – Does a Monk gain benefits from taking a level in Fighter and choosing Unarmed Fighting from Tasha’s?

The Unarmed Fighting style from Tasha’s states:

Your unarmed strikes can deal bludgeoning damage equal to 1d6 + your Strength modifier. If you strike
with two free hands, the d6 becomes a d8. When you successfully start a grapple, you can deal 1d4
bludgeoning damage to the grappled creature. Until the grapple ends, you can also deal this damage to
the creature whenever you hit it with a melee attack.

Would a, say, 2nd-level Monk gain a benefit from taking a single level in Fighter, making unarmed strikes with a d8+STR?
This seems better than the 1d4 from the early levels.

datetimepicker – What are the benefits of a combined date and time picker?

I am wondering what are the benefits of using a combined date+time picker if user still needs to input them as 2 separate entities, e.g.:
Material-ui Date+Time Picker

Wouldn’t a combined picker require more cognitive effort since user is now facing 2 questions at once instead of 1 at a time?

Moreover, in my opinion (not tested), having a combined picker seems to distract users from using the manual entry option via keyboard which could potentially be faster.

Any thoughts on this?

pathfinder 1e – What are the benefits of being able to remove somatic components from casting a spell?

What are the full benefits if somatic components are removed from casting a spell (ie. using still spell metamagic feat.)?
A lot of d20 based video games have the benefit of removing the arcane spell failure when somatic components are removed from spellcasting. I was wondering if this is the same in pathfinder 1e tabletop game, and if there are any other not-so-obvious benefits that would come from this.

Building An Ehr System: Definition, Benefits, Problems, And Examples

Innovation and healthcare always go hand in hand. That’s why doctors heavily rely on Electronic Health Record systems to be able to concentrate on patients. Thinking about building an ehr system? Of course, with great technology comes a lot of effort to understand it and adopt. Here we clear this up

dnd 5e – What benefits does a tent give a character?

It does what a tent does: provide temporary shelter from rain, snow, wind, cold, sunlight, and so on. Depending on the severity of these conditions, they could otherwise create a situation where restful sleep is impossible or even life-threatening (hypothermia, sunstroke, etc.). In the absence of restful sleep, most humanoids accumulate levels of exhaustion, which is debilitating and eventually lethal.

In C++, If a member function can be made static with no change to functionality, are there any performance or memory benefits from doing so?

Practically in 99.9% of cases: no.

Theoretically: maybe. You won’t be passing the implicit this parameter to every function, and not passing that could save you bytes and the time passing those bytes. The compiler may well optimise it away though in any case. If profiling has shown one of these functions is on your hot path, it might be worth considering.

However, I’d argue you should still do this anyway, because it makes it clear to anybody looking at the code that your static function doesn’t act on any object state. That’s far more important than any discussion about memory or performance.

dnd 5e – Does Wind Walk grant stealth benefits due to gaseous form?

There has already been some helpful discussion about whether wind walk in D&D 5e also gives the extra effects associated with gaseous form (Just how gaseous is the “gaseous form” of the Wind Walk spell?). I understand the past consensus was that RAW says probably not, but that there is an acceptable basis for house rules to say otherwise.

In my group, we seem to have opted for the interpretation that being in wind walk’s gaseous form gives us all the benefits of gaseous form. For example, we’ve been able to do do things like flow through small cracks in wind walk.

Under my group’s interpretation of a wind walk that allows gaseous state benefits, would being a gas also make us more difficult to see, which would grant a stealth bonus? For context, we have a tentative plan to infiltrate a warehouse by slipping through a keyhole in wind walk, so we may need to resolve how easy it is for the guards on the other side to see us come in.

Are there any privacy benefits in using a separate wallet in Bitcoin Core to “separate” myself from my service?

I currently run Bitcoin Core with the following wallets loaded in:

  1. hot.dat. Contains the smallest possible sum of Bitcoin. Unencrypted and used by myself for various personal Bitcoin purchases, and I intend to have it double as the wallet for my Bitcoin-based website. (Unless you tell me a good reason not to.)
  2. lukewarm.dat. Contains more than the “hot” wallet, but still not much compared to cold.dat. Encrypted with a long passphrase, but which is located on the same computer in a text document. I recon that it will stop at least automated malware which simply checks for wallet.dats and merely “sends them home”. It of course won’t stop somebody from manually finding the text document on my machine and figuring out that it’s the passphrase to use.
  3. cold.dat. Contains the vast majority of my satoshis. Encrypted with a long passphrase (partially stored on the same computer) with a bunch of additional parts with “hints” to myself rather than explicitly spelled out. This passphrase has never been entered to unlock the wallet outside of the dedicated Linux computer where it was created. (Not this machine.)

I’m aware that many would not consider my cold.dat to be a “cold wallet”, but I thought the naming scheme fit well enough. The reason I don’t use a truly “cold” wallet (where it’s not stored on a “live” computer even encrypted) has to do with me fearing losing the file or having a fire or getting it seized more than I fear somebody first hacking into my machine and then somehow figuring out my complicated passphrase scheme. I consider that so unlikely that it is far more likely that I would lose access to it in other ways.

Now I wonder if I should be having a separate “service.dat” wallet dedicated to my new service, or if I can just generate new receive addresses for my existing hot.dat and use those. Is there any privacy benefit in me doing that? Or would I just be wasting yet another transaction fee to send over some satoshis from my hot.dat to my potential “service.dat”?

What if somebody who I do private business with knows who I am (because I have to give them my home address) and when I’ve paid them using hot.dat, those “inputs”/”outputs” are reused for my service, and suddenly they can associate me, the individual, with my service? And would that change at all if I used a separate “service.dat” wallet for the service? Won’t it be the same “track” either way?

PS: No, it’s not something illegal or immoral. I’m simply trying to avoid any association between myself and the service, plus I’m also curious about this on an academic level.
