But why does it say 'animée' in the French version though? I checked and the swirls aren't actually swirling... Je suis confusion.

Animated means alive.

My French is not what it used to be but I'm pretty sure that's 'vivant.' I do understand that 'animated' also means 'alive' but I don't think that's what they're implying here.

Well, it was partially a joke in that the frog is literally alive and animated means "having given life to" which is what animée means as well. That's why they call moving pictures animated, because they've been given life in a sense compared to still pictures.

Thank you! I missed the outfit one and from what I saw on here was to do the 8 hour classes but since this is a much shorter event I figured there was a different strategy.

1 hour for crests. 8 hour for house points.

Well, one factor is that it wouldn't make sense for people to get the Skeeter event if they haven't yet met Skeeter.

My first year MC got the crest version. And both events result in the same outfit. Smart idea, but not one the devs seem to have pursued.

Ahh, I see. Oh well.

When this sort of thing happens, an early thing to try is to restart your phone or tablet and to then start the game again.

Also, apparently 8 hour classes are the best for this one...

Yeah, for house points in general, eight-hour classes are the fastest.

Ikr. U think Dumbledore would be striking conversations with him at every available opportunity or asking for advice on issues in the school.

I prefer his original Chocolate Frog card look with the purple /blue robes but I get why they went for the green robes, being Slytherin's color.

Paintings don't really capture the full personality of the person portrayed, so the advice likely wouldn't have been available or wouldn't have been the best.

This is just a guess, but they probably do that because they'd have to either store all those lessons on your device, which probably takes a lot of disk space and would make the game not work for everyone that has low disk space, or pay to have everyone repeatedly download the lessons from their servers when their game switches classes all the time for them, which could cost a lot in downloading costs if they have to do that repeatedly all the time for everyone.

The best option for them would then be to put the same lesson per class for everyone into the game updates. That allows the game to fit on low-disk-space devices, and the app stores pay the download costs every time there's an update.

Assuming I'm correct, what they could do if they had their house in order and were willing to spend a bit on downloads is to change the repeatable lessons stored in each update with the assumption that players were all waiting for new content and all lessons so far were open for inclusion. For each player who hadn't made it to that lesson, they'd have to pay for the download cost of a replacement random repeatable class.

This would increase the storage needed for the repeatable lessons by only a little bit and increase their costs a bit, but they know who plays a lot and where they are in the game, so their costs could be kept to appropriate levels by choosing the right lessons to minimize downloads so that they fall under a certain amount of download spending per week.

I change clothes regularly. I generally wear the event reward for a little while after I get it, then pick an outfit.

No. No. This will never happen. Only event for ugly outfits is organized. It's the only purpose to be like a real wizard. To never look like a real wizard.

You're expanding the topic. We are talking about trucking.

see more

Yes, we are talking about that, and full automation of trucks isn't required to fire a good portion of truckers. Automation of only the highway portion of driving while leaving the more-complicated surface streets and docking to truckers will eliminate a lot of jobs.

1 point · 10 days ago · edited 10 days ago

Trucks don't just magically get on the highway! How do you think trucks get on the highway? They start on surface streets!

Also they typically get to the surface streets from truck docks. So at what point exactly do you think the truckers will leap out of a moving vehicle under your new and awesome system? The on ramp?

1 point · 9 days ago · edited 9 days ago

I'm not sure you're thinking this through at all, since you're focusing on my precise words rather than the realities of the situation, and the reality of the situation is what determines what can happen. Some surface streets and docks are complex. Some aren't. The easy ones can also be automated without full automation. The truck drivers in complex areas can drive it to a truck stop on a highway and let it go from there.

Your point about leaping from moving vehicles is also fairly ludicrous, since that wasn't even part of my precise wording. You're not arguing in good faith.

Eight hour classes with magical creatures or, if you're not that far, charms. Get as many five-energy tasks as you can to speed things along, since they give bonus energy.

This just popped up for me too. Weird that some people got this and other got the crest event. Also do we not get the gold and gems the crest people do? Cause that would really suck and I’d much rather have those than the outfit

I'm trying to back up everything on my iPad so that I can erase my iPad, upgrade to iOS 12 on Monday, and restore the backup.

The iPad has 128 GB storage total. 113.8 GB is used. It's not just apps. I have 41.23 GB of podcasts alone that I don't want to lose because some of them are old and no longer available for download.

The problem is that, after the full backup of my iPad in iTunes in Windows, the entirety of the C: drive uses 30.2 GB out of 200 GB of space. That's with Windows, all my Windows programs, all my Windows files, and the iPad backup. That's not even enough to hold just the podcasts even if the iPad backup used the whole C: drive for itself, let alone all the other downloads I have in other apps, like offline maps in Google Maps or the 11 GB of audiobooks in my broken Audible account that I can't log into anymore to redownload them.

What do I need to do to copy literally all files except the operating system off my iPad so that when I erase my iPad and restore the backup, it's like I never erased it without me having to redownload everything, permanently lose access to the things I can no longer redownload, and set everything up (like restoring purchases in apps) again?

  1. You have a podcast addiction
  2. Is there a reason you can’t or won’t just update to 12 without restoring?
see more
Original Poster1 point · 10 days ago

I have a few reasons:

  • If iOS 12 is messed up for me, I can go back to iOS 11 and restore from backup, but I need an iOS 11 backup there to do that since a messed up iOS 12 might not be able to make a backup and I'd lose my data.
  • I want to test the backups I make to ensure that they actually work, but I don't have a second device to test that with, so I need to have some confidence that it'll keep the important files ahead of time (which I don't yet have), then I can do the test to see what it keeps.
  • APFS is still fairly new, so I want to give the system the chance to erase its filesystem and start fresh in case there's filesystem corruption (if a few files are corrupted, that's no big deal, but if the filesystem is corrupted, that can cause more problems over time).

Since I want to test the backups, I could probably back up in 11, upgrade to 12, test it out and see if it's good, back up in 12, erase, then test the backup that way.

I see. I would just update to 12 and call it a day


to answer your question, backups don’t backup first party media. Apps, movies, music, etc downloaded from Apple. Your phone instead backups “lists” of what you have and then redownloads the stuff instead after restoring from backup. So you will lose whatever podcasts are no longer available (assuming you’re talking about the iOS podcast app). You’ll have to google this part because I can’t tell you the steps off the top of my head but you should be able to plug into iTunes and transfer your podcasts to iTunes and then you’ll have a hard copy on your computer.

3rd party app data, like your downloaded audible stuff should be included in your backup.

Unfortunately, the backup was only about 3 GB (in C:\Users\User\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\) and doesn't include the 11 GB of Audible audiobooks.

It turns out I had to turn on sync for podcasts specifically in a different section of iTunes than the backup screen and now those are all stored on my computer. Is there something similar for Audible and other non-Apple apps' downloads?

Something might have gone wrong in what the game thinks is going on. To restart the game properly, try restarting your phone and then starting the game.

You can see what the problem is by very, very slowly tracing the movement out and seeing exactly where it tells you you've done it wrong. I don't think speed matters for wand movements.

You can also try out alternatives slowly to see what works as a workaround.

Pretty sure that seven of those men are levitating, meaning that at the very least they're not adding to the weight on their side. They may even be lifting their side up a bit if that's how levitation works.
