€6bn Mose project designed to protect city from high tides is still not in operation

“We don’t know when we will reopen. Thank you Mose!” reads the sign pinned to the door of Pasticceria Rizzardini, a small bakery and coffee shop in the San Polo area of Venice.

Established in 1742, the shop has survived many floods; a faded list of the highest records is etched by the door. But Monday night’s deluge, the worst since 1966, and the subsequent acqua alta, or high water, on Wednesday and Thursday have severely damaged the premises. Another high tide, estimated at 1.45 metres, is forecast for Friday. www.theguardian.com/world/2019… #Italy #Naturaldisastersandextremeweather #Europe #Worldnews

Hi folks. I've been playing #DnD on and off for years. I currently DM a 3e game in person and play a paladin in a 5e game on roll20. Given my druthers, I prefer DMing to playing, but I haven't been doing it long - the game I'm DMing now is the first.

I do #3DPrinting, and I print and paint all the minis we use in our game. I'm new to painting minis and always learning, but it's very relaxing and I enjoy it.

I'm glad to be here. :)

A little hard to see, but had to get a snap of the bottle opener on the left side of their bumper.

Hey @SHAQ: Law enforcement partnerships with @RING don’t make neighborhoods safer—they turn our front doors into vast, unaccountable surveillance networks. #NothingButDragnet t.co/sE40FJxUWt

A lot of people get robots.txt wrong.

It is, more than anything, a courtesy to *the crawler*. It's you flagging things that may break it (infinite recursion) or things that are fleeting and pointless to cache or index.

It's not a privacy control, and it's definitely not a security measure.

Had a good time at the SecKC meetup last night. Good presentations and met a few friends.

Performed first system backup and then upgraded this instance to Mastodon v2.8.0.

Attended the Planet Comicon Kansas City last weekend. This was their 20th year anniversary so picked up some swag. Was also my first comicon and enjoyed seeing all the aritists and people in costume.

Completed finishing touches on my latest build - the ISS Enterprise from the original Star Trek series episode "Mirror, Mirror".
