Interested to find out how to post process portraits like the examples

I am hoping someone could help shed some light on how these portraits are processed. The fairy tale softness in the skin, with yet the sharpness still maintained just has me confused on how it is done. Any insight on how to get results like this would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

In a shell script, process oprions like -a -b but leave –abc alone?

So I have a shell script that does some preparation and then runs a utility.

The preparation can be affected by switches like -a or -n. The contents of the command line that are not such switches are to be passed to the utility. Currently my script has:

while getopts ":an" opt; do
  case $opt in
      #something else
      echo "Invalid option: -$OPTARG" >&2
shift $((OPTIND-1))
  #more prep
my_utility $@

However, this fails when I want to pass long-form options to the utiity, such as --abc as that is interpreted as a, b, and c options by getopts.

So how can I process options in such a way that -a or -n is processed, but --abc remains untouched? Unless, of course, I dump Shell and do it in Python – then options would be very easy, but I also need to copy files and run utilities, and Python makes this awkward.

Does the salinity in seawater affect the process of alkaline hydrolysis?

I am an architecture student doing a project on crematorium spaces. I am looking at resomation or alkaline hydrolysis as an alternative method of disposition of a body. From what I gather from research, the funeral parlours offering the resomation service uses 80 gallons/ 300 L of water for each body. I am just wondering if in theory such an enormous amount of water could be replaced with seawater? Or does the salinity or pH of seawater inhibit the process?

unique identifier for a DOS process on 1 single machine

I use a Win 10 machine with different users, and these all can use a same bat file.

In the bat scripts I need a temporary file with an unique name consisting of an identfier for the process currently at hand on that machine. There thus can be multiple such processes at the same time.

As file name a want to use C:WindowsTemp???.txt.

The question is what ??? must be.

Remove Components (Process builder) From Managed released package

I have a situation. One of Our client is using Professional edition. But our managed release package has a Process builder with APEX invocableMethod in it. Professional Edition will not allow any Apex related flows/process builders etc.. Workaround will be using a traditional Trigger. However, I am unable to remove already existing Process Builder from the package so that I can insert the Trigger and install it on Client Profession Edition.
Please let me know what are the steps to be taken to remove Components from managed package.
Thank you.

Is softening a linen garment the end of the laundry process and therefore forbidden on Shabbos (Shabbos…

Shabbos 140a. Rav Safra permits softening a laundered linen shirt. (Translation and elucidation of the Gemoro below according to Sefaria) – original is:

מיסתמיך ואזיל רב אחא בר יוסף אכתפיה דרב נחמן בר יצחק בר אחתיה אמר ליה
כי מטינן לבי רב ספרא עיילינא כי מטו עייליה בעא מיניה מהו לכסכוסי
כיתניתא בשבתא לרכוכי כיתניתא קא מיכוין ושפיר דמי או דילמא לאולודי
חיורא קמיכוין ואסיר אמר ליה לרכוכי קא מיכוין ושפיר דמי

The Gemara relates another incident involving Rav Aḥa bar Yosef: Rav
Aḥa bar Yosef was walking and leaning on the shoulder of Rav Naḥman
bar Yitzḥak, his sister’s son. Rav Aḥa said to him: When we arrive at
Rav Safra’s house, bring me in. When they arrived, Rav Naḥman brought
him in. Rav Aḥa then raised a dilemma before Rav Safra: What is the
halakha pertaining to rubbing and thereby softening a linen shirt that
is hard after being laundered on Shabbat? Does one intend to soften
the shirt, and one may well do so? Or perhaps he intends to generate
whiteness in the shirt, and it is prohibited? Rav Safra said to him:
He intends to soften, and one may well do so.

The softening renders the garment fit to wear. Why is it then not מכה בפטיש (the end of the process) of the melocho of libun?

Strange error in trace file for NSAn standby process

One of the Oracle databases I help manage is the primary in a standby configuration, with two standby databases. I started finding repeated entries in the alert log on the primary for a failure to resolve the TNS connect identifier for log_archive_dest_3 and referencing the trace file for NSA3. That trace file had an error message I’d never seen before, and I can’t find any information on it for the life of me: “LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_2 depends upon me, but my destination index 2 does not match its destination index 1.” This showed up several times in the trace file.

I was able to verify that all standbys are up-to-date with the primary and are responsive to tnsping. Can anyone shed some light on this error?

Geoserver How to call existing functions inside new WPS process

I am pretty new to Geoserver and programming processes for it. I having trouble to find the information I need.
Is it possible to call a existing function inside my own WPS class? I want to clip some polygons but don’t want to import the whole clipping sourcecode into my project.
Do I need some special imports or is it possible to access other WPS processes directly? Would be some sort of process chaining I guess. I can only find examples for this using the WPS builder and XML files but I don’t want to go this way, insted do this directly in Java.

How to terminate a python process similar to ctrl-c?

If I have several Terminal windows open, each running a python script, is there a way to terminate one by PID as if I pressed ctrl-c?

With ctrl-c the script exits gracefully, but I tried various kill -s commands and they all caused it to terminate without catching the script’s main (infinite) while loop.

There are some ‘cleanup’ actions that get performed after ctrl-c.

Production REP token contract migration process

What occurred during the production REP token contract migration scheduled to begin at 11AM PST on August 9th?

This is an automatic migration, meaning REP token holders do not need to do anything. While there is not an exact timeframe of how long migration will take, the estimation is 8 to 10 hours, assuming there are no hiccups and all goes well.

What happens during the estimated 8 to 10 hour migration period?

  • Is there migration code that handles the new REP token contract being minted 1:1 to all REP token holders or will this handle some degree of manual intervention (for exchanges or other parties)?
  • What method was used to validate the 1:1 minting based on all REP token balances at the time of the migration?
