Opening Chrome on macOS stops volume shortcuts from working

I’m having an issue on macOS Catalina (10.15.7) where as soon as I open Chrome (Or any chromium-based browser for that matter that I’ve tested including Brave, Edge, Opera), the volume up and volume down shortcuts completely stop working. The only way I can stop this from happening is if I completely restart my computer, only then will the FN + F10 and FN + F11 keys execute their intended action of changing the volume on my machine, only to return to an unresponsive state once I open up my Chrome browser. This does not happen on non-chromium based browsers. I’ve also tried disabling the #hardware-media-key-handling flag with no avail.

logging – Obtain log of when audio starts and stops

I want to get a list of timestamped events for when the audio player starts and stops. By “audio player” I mean the one that is common for all apps that you see when you pull down the notification bar in Android 11. So when audio that is not system notifications start or stop.

Any way of doing it would be okay. Either an app or through adb and system logs, or something else. As far as I can tell, Android destroys logs from before that last reboot, but I might be wrong about this. If I can access old logs, that would be a solution.

Sound stops after few seconds after Windows start

I’ve replaced motherboard, CPU and RAM. Windows 10 managed to continue working. I’ve installed Realtek drivers, but the sound stops after 10-15 seconds after boot. Not much in event logger. My USB headset works fine if I switch to it. Weirdly, the speakers still show up in sound device manager as playing. I can switch to headset and hear music. If I switch back it doesn’t protest and just pretends the sound is playing throught it. I wanted to somehow force Windows to use generic audio drivers without luck. What can I do? I have Windows license after BizSpark program which allowed me explicitely to use the software as long as I don’t reinstall it, so I’d like to avoid reinstalling Windows.

magento2 – Magento 2 server issue – stops delivering web page – disk space issue?

When I try to visit my Magento 2 application, it doesn’t respond, it gives a slow white web page trying to load and eventually I get some error from the browser. There is no Magento exception provided. To immediately solve the issue, I restart the server instance and everything is back to normal.

At the time of the issue, I don’t know if I could connect through SSH to the server.

This happens every now and then, it is irregular and has happened maybe 3-7 times during this year. It is frustrating as the site can be down for days without me noticing in worst case. Hence, I’m looking for fixing the root cause.

  • Apache 2.4.43
  • Magento 2.3.5
  • PHP 7.3.17
  • MySQL 8.0.18
  • Debian 4.9

I’ve looked into some of the logs, but cannot with full certainty determine where the problem starts.

Magento update.log:

The last message means MySQL is not running.

AT 09.27, Apache is out of space for log writing. Within the coming hours, I guess, there are quite many requests to the server which it doesn’t manage to serve, due to non-responding MySQL, then I guess the restart it just part of normal operation.

MySQL mysqld.log (there is not much more than this, I would have expected that there were something before 09.46)

Again, there is no error message I can find before 09.46, and the connection is failing at 09.43 according to Magento update.log. However, if disk is full, it might explain there is no error message written.

Leaning into disk space being the issue

With the above error messages, I’m tempted to conclude that disk space is the issue. df -h /dev/sda1 gives below output.

Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1        15G   14G  980M  94% /

If I presume that space is the issue:

  • Why would a restart of the server give more space? Is it log rotation with compressed logs? Something else?
  • Is there any other way I determine that lack of disk space is the issue for Magento?

dnd 5e – Does someone with darkvision fools Nature’s Mantle when the wearer is in a dim light area and thus stops it from granting its benefit?

Darkvision can prevent the function of Nature’s Mantle.

Nature’s Mantle says:

While you are in an area that is lightly obscured, you can Hide as a bonus action even if you are being directly observed.

So typically, when in dim light, you are lightly obscured. But, Darkvision says:

A monster with darkvision can see in the dark within a specific radius. The monster can see in dim light within the radius as if it were bright light.

With respect to a creature with Darkvision, you are not lightly obscured while in dim light, as they can see in dim light as if it were bright light.

It becomes complicated when there are multiple observers with and without darkvision.

It gets weird when the Nature’s Mantle wearer is being observed by a creature with, and a creature without darkvision.

With respect to the creature without, they are lightly obscured, but not with respect to the creature with. In this scenario, I would allow the bonus action hide, but it would not hide the wearer from the creature with darkvision, only the creature without it.

wi fi – Wifi stops working at random

I have a Galaxy S20, which is having a problem with wireless networks (for around a week, maybe a few days more). It will always connect to them fine, but after a certain (somewhat random) amount of time, it will lose network connectivity but still appear to be connected. Sometimes an exclamation mark appears on the icon, sometimes not.

In either case, disabling and then reenabling wifi will fix it, until it drops out again, usually a few minutes later but could be hours later.

I have tested both with my main wireless network (using UniFi APs) and also with an old dd-wrt AP I had lying around. It has the same problem on both although if anything seems to happen more on my main network with much better APs, as well as happening more when I’m actively using the phone rather than just watching a ping command. APs (for my main network, anyway) are running latest firmware, on the best channels (currently 6 and 1) but I have tested other channels. Network is performing fine, DHCP and DNS working properly, etc. DHCP lease time is 12 hours with a static mapping for the phone so I know it’s not expiring and failing to renew.

In the logs for the UniFi APs, I get a lot of log entries like this, but search results for them are generally useless:

Dec 14 21:03:32 unifi-1.***** user U7PG2,fcecdaa379ba,v4.3.24.11355: : mcad(19924): wireless_agg_stats.log_sta_anomalies(): bssid=fc:ec:**:**:**:** radio=wifi0 vap=ath0 sta=58:d5:**:**:**:** satisfaction_now=73 anomalies=tcp_latency
Dec 14 21:03:50 unifi-1.***** user U7PG2,fcecdaa379ba,v4.3.24.11355: : mcad(19924): wireless_agg_stats.log_sta_anomalies(): bssid=fc:ec:**:**:**:** radio=wifi0 vap=ath0 sta=58:d5:**:**:**:** satisfaction_now=73 anomalies=tcp_latency

When I run a ping to an address on the local network, it works for a while, then stops receiving the replies. Meanwhile, if I ping the phone’s IP from a computer, I see a corresponding sudden loss of all packets to the phone (Destination Host Unreachable). The same problem does not occur for any other wireless devices (phones, tablets, or laptops) and happens whether the phone is charging or on battery.

Any idea why this happens or on any fixes? I can do ADB if needed but not sure what to do for diagnostics as android’s network tools are fairly limited.

dnd 4e – What happens when a large creature stops squeezing in a space that they had to use squeeze to enter?

This is a follow up question relating to What are the advantages and disadvantages of allowing a player to play a large creature?

So far, everything for the player playing the large Minotaur has been balanced. If anything, not being able to move between enemies that had a one square gap between them has shown that the character is actually weaker than a medium sized Defender.

So here’s what happened:

The party’s rogue ran into a room by himself, jump on a 10×25 foot table, and hit an enemy that was eating. Enemies that had been hiding rushed him from all corners (The players had been very noisy in the previous room). He was surrounded and in one enemy round he was unconscious.

The Minotaur fighter decided to Squeeze to move into the same square as the prone rogue.

After fighting (at a -5 penalty to hit because of the Squeeze) he decided to stop squeezing and push the enemies off the table.

Fortunately, he hadn’t only decided to stop using Squeeze, but he had also decided to Jump and smash the table with malicious intent.

We ruled that he broke the table in half and sent one of the enemies flying into the wall after they failed their acrobatics check. This gave the Minotaur space to land at full size to continue fighting the enemies.

Had he not had a table to break, how would a large creature that is being flanked by four enemies that stops using Squeeze work?

We talked about it after, and because he’s 10 feet tall and weighs 850 pounds we decided that if he did it again they would all get an attack of opportunity on a successful acrobatics check or be moved one square.

How should this actually go?

Docker starts but stops a few seconds later /run/containerd/containerd.sock: connect: connection refused

Docker stopped working. I tried to remove everything as many posts say and reinstall it properly but it didn’t work.
I updated Ubuntu from 16.04 to 20.04 but it didn’t change anything.
Here is what journalctl -fu docker returns to me:

I searched on many forums and on GitHub but I couldn’t find anything functional…

Audio stops playing on chrome

Audio stops playing on chrome

Hi,
I have an audio playing on a webpage.
It plays normally. So far ok.

Now, there is a button on same webpage which allows users to capture a video using their phone camera.
SEMrush

As soon as this button is clicked, the audio in the background stops playing.
I want to keep that audio playing while the user is recording a video.
How can I do this?

Here’s a demo page.
Please note, its only demo, not a webpage that will go live on site.

https://dprocks.com/1demo.php

Click the play button in the audio player to start the audio,
then click that select file button, and audio will stop, and I don’t know why…

That select file button will prompt you to record a video using camera, that part is working ok.
Only problem is that audio stops playing.

And this audio auto stop is happening on phone browser only.
On laptop the audio keeps playing normally…

Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks

 

Black Friday with Green Hosting: Hoster Labs Stops By From the North Pole! (2GB ipv6-only VPS for $1.50/mo!)

Hoster Labs is right next door to Santa Claus up in the Great White North so naturally they are participating in our Black Friday!  And they’re bringing us some great, exclusive offers:

  • 1GB VPS for $0.99/month for the first five customers, $1.49 for everyone else
  • 2GB ipv6-only VPS for $1.50/month for the first ten customers or 99 cents/mo for ipv6-only ($3 for everyone else).  99 cents/mo for 2GB is pretty awesome!

Since both have limited quantities, act fast!

I wrote up the last offer for Hoster Labs and was really impressed by their focus on sustainability and green hosting.  They’re using 100% renewable energy and give 20% of profits to charity (see details on their site).

Here’s what they have to say about themselves:

“We are extremely proud to say that we have an excellent support service which is dedicated to our customers. We attempt to have a very good customer satisfaction. Some of our clients are just surprised with our support given our price. We have a lot of experience in technical support and virtualization. We know our stuff in IPv4 and IPv6 as well as anti-ddos protection and optimization. You have system administrators with vast knowledge as your technical support staff. Do not doubt to contact us, as we have your back as your service providers.

We are focused in several aspects; affordability, excellence in customer service and social responsibility. 

What do I mean with social responsibility? It means being conscious about our surroundings and understanding that money is not everything in this industry. We care about the environment and our society. We have planned to donate 20% of all our profit at the end of the year to several organizations described in our “about-us” page. At the end of the day, sustainable business models will perdure on the long run.

We offer good hardware, good customer support, and daily supervision of each and all vm’s. We communicate proactively with our customers to check how their service is going. We always try to mediate and know how they are doing. We often perceive issues due to our intensive monitoring before they are reported. So when our customer submits a ticket, we already on it.”

Their WHOIS is not public but they are a registered company in Mexico (Mexico RFC: COPJ010609CVA) and you can find their terms of service on their web site.  You can pay with Paypal, bank transfer, Stripe, and BitCoin.

Remember that the LEB wants to hear about your experiences, so if you try out Hosterlabs, please comment below!
