risk of flooding in petra in november

My tentative plans have me in Egypt from November 12 – November 23. I was thinking it could be cool to visit Petra before hand. Maybe like November 9 – November 11 or some such.

The concern I have with this is… last year, on November 10, Petra flooded and a bunch of tourists died and a bunch more had to be evacuated:


According to wikipedia, the average rainfall in Petra in November is 0.6in. It’s hard to imagine flash flooding with that little rain but idk.

My question is… how likely is Petra to flood in early November? Were the flash floods from last year an aberration or are they fairly common in early November?

How does the November 2018 PH errata change the usage of multiclass spell slots to cast spell?

The Player’s Handbook, pg. 114, once read:

The Wizard table shows how many spell slots you have to cast your spells of 1st level and higher.

With the November 2018 PH errata

In the first sentence, “your spells” is now “your wizard spells.”

Now it reads

The Wizard table shows how many spell slots you have to cast your wizard spells of 1st level and higher.

The errata also apply the same change to classes and archetypes with Spellcasting class feature.

A single classed wizard won’t notice the difference, but I wonder if this change means multiclassing means spell slots gained from multiclassing to cleric, for instance, cannot be used to cast wizard spells that is not in cleric spell list?

How does this errata change how multiclass spell slots work?

Applied SP2013 November CU and 2010 workflow still do not work

I’m curious if anyone has had the issue described here: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/dotnet/2018/09/11/net-framework-september-2018-security-and-quality-rollup/

After any of the September 2018 .NET Framework security updates to resolve CVE-2018-8421 (.NET Framework Remote Code Execution Vulnerability) are applied, SharePoint out-of-the-box workflows stop working.

The November CU lists that it resolves this issue, but when I applied the update I was still unable to use an out of the box 2010 workflow. I can see in central admin that the update has been installed successfully.

Here’s the article for resolving the issue: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4465015/sharepoint-workflows-stop-after-cve-2018-8421-security-update

The solution is to explicitly add the necessary types to all web applications’ web.config files.

I checked the web.config file and the additional settings outlined in the article were not present. I’m wondering if I still need to make these changes to the web.config file.

Ryanair – Gate bag after November 1, 2018

Ryanair introduced its carry-on bag policy from November 2018. I assumed that I can take only 1 small bag. On their website they write:

If non-priority customers want to bring a 2nd bigger (wheelie) bag they can buy a lower cost 10kg check bag for €/£8 at time of booking (currently a 20kg bag costs €/£25). This 10kg wheelie bag must be checked in at the airport bag drop desk.

And also:

6. What happens if my ‘small’ bag doesn’t fit in the sizer?

If non-priority customers’ 1 free small bag doesn’t fit in the new sizer then their bag is more than 25% bigger than their small bag allowance. They will pay a gate bag fee of €25 and their bag will be tagged and placed in the hold. (See point 5)

But today I just received an email from Ryanair:

Non-Priority: If you have not purchased Priority & 2 Cabin Bags, you are only permitted to bring 1 small personal bag on board (max 35cm x 20cm x 20cm) that must fit under the seat in front of you. Your second bigger 10kg cabin bag (max 55cm x 40cm x 20cm) will be tagged at the boarding gate and put into the hold free of charge and can be collected at the baggage carousel on arrival.

Note: I bought the tickets after 1 Sept 2018 (see 2.).

There seems to be confounding information about it:

Gare de Lyon to CDG on November 3-4, 2018

I will be arriving at the Paris Gare de Lyon Train station around 9.30 AM tomorrow (Saturday) and want to explore some major attractions in Paris and then will have to catch an international flight at 9PM from CDG. For that I am planning to put the luggage in a locker at the Gare de Lyon station and then go to eiffel tower and then go to see some more places and then come back to Gare de Lyon to pick up the luggage and then go to CDG to catch the flight. My main concern is how to go back to CDG from Gare de Lyon station. The below links say that there is no RER B on Saturday and the bus line also severely disrupted.



What are the alternative ways to go back to CDG apart from taking a taxi ?

Is there a day pass which will work for all the lines ?

Do you have a speculation about when Google will update?

  • Do you think there has been a backlinks update?
  • Do you think there has been a PR update?
  • Are you seeing Google fluctuations?
  • Do you think there has been an algorithm update?
