Warning: Steem witnesses executed a hard fork on 2020-05-20, seizing 23.6M STEEM from 65 accounts. The funds were transferred to an account named @community321, the ownership (and intentions) of which have not been revealed. The witnesses claim to have been targeting accounts which defended against a hostile takeover in early March, but at least 2 accounts on the list have been inactive for over 4 years.

- GitHub.com: view steemd HF23 changes

What you can do:

- Switch to HIVE, the community-led fork. Visit Hive.blog and Hiveblocks.com.

Gunboat grey skies... by ackhoo

Gunboat grey skies...
*Grey-ish green... like the colour of navy gun boats...*

*That's what the skies were like that evening... and most unusual was the rolls or layers*

*Like waves... undulating...*

*It was oddly in a specific part of the sky, which, well... made sense - it would have looked more odd if it covered the entire sky!*

*Like Doomsday rolls!*

<center>*There... the Doomsday rolls
And far off rain, coming down in sheets
It turned the sky quite dark
But did not storm where I stood*</center><br>

<center>*Looks fearsome, doesn't?!
Luckily it was just a case of bark being worse than the bite!
Threatening thunder and lightning...
Then a light drizzle was what I got!*</center>

<center>*Happy Friday everyone...
And have a great weekend!
May it never rain on your parade!* 😉</center><br>
