I have an ecommerce application running 2 applications. App 1 (example1.com) is written as react.js and built as a normal html site. Nginx is serving this on port 7000. App 2 (my.example1.com) is a java application and nginx proxies this to tomcat using a different port.

I now need to be able to make cross app calls between these 2 applications and maintain certificates and cookies between them.  ...

What's the meaning of UNICAST-RESPONSE bit set in mDNS response?
in flag

mDNS response in Wireshark

As per Wikipedia, the UNICAST-RESPONSE field is used to minimize unnecessary broadcasts on the network: if the bit is set, responders SHOULD send a directed-unicast response directly to the inquiring node rather than broadcasting the response to the entire network.

What does it mean when it's set in response? Wireshark shows it as Cache flush, what does that mean? I couldn't find any more docume ...

Cause of Master Key Backup Failure and Consequences of Workaround

I had a workstation afflicted with the issue described here:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/troubleshoot/windows-server/identity/dpapi-masterkey-backup-failures

Basically, in older versions of Windows on first login if an RWDC (Read/Write Domain Controller) is not able to be contacted then a local backup of the master key is made. Whereas in newer versions of Windows, apparently it will just fail to ...

Who is the correct owner and group for these system files? (Digital Ocean Droplet running Ubuntu 20.04)
fr flag

This should be a simple answer for anyone using a Digital Ocean droplet on Ubuntu 20.04. I accidentally ran a command that changed ownership and group of a bunch of files in /var (outside the directory I was working in). I've managed to restore the owner/group on most of the files, but I am not sure what the owner/group for the following files should be:

/var/log/droplet-agent.update.log
/var/log/ubuntu-a ...

Tailscale: SSH works with manually compiled Openssh, but not system installed Openssh
in flag

(This question should be tagged with "Tailscale", but that doesn't exist yet - requires knowledge of Tailscale)

I have a standard Ubuntu 20.04 laptop, connecting via ssh to a remote Raspberry Pi (port 22). At the remote location, there is port forwarding on the router (59995->22).

Note: I have removed ~/.ssh/config during testing.

SSH always connects successfully, using:

The Stunning Power of Questions

Much of an executive’s workday is spent asking others for information—requesting status updates from a team leader, for example, or questioning a counterpart in a tense negotiation. Yet unlike professionals such as litigators, journalists, and doctors, who are taught how to ask questions as an essential part of their training, few executives think of questioning as a skill that can be honed—or consider how their own answers to questions could make conversations more productive.

That’s a missed opportunity. Questioning is a uniquely powerful tool for unlocking value in organizations: It spurs learning and the exchange of ideas, it fuels innovation and performance improvement, it builds rapport and trust among team members. And it can mitigate business risk by uncovering unforeseen pitfalls and hazards.

For some people, questioning comes easily. Their natural inquisitiveness, emotional intelligence, and ability to read people put the ideal question on the tip of their tongue. But most of us don’t ask enough questions, nor do we pose our inquiries in an optimal way.

The good news is that by asking questions, we naturally improve our emotional intelligence, which in turn makes us better questioners—a virtuous cycle. In this article, we draw on insights from behavioral science research to explore how the way we frame questions and choose to answer our counterparts can influence the outcome of conversations. We offer guidance for choosing the best type, tone, sequence, and framing of questions and for deciding what and how much information to share to reap the most benefit from our interactions, not just for ourselves but for our organizations.
