I had a dream last night that I wrote some vitally important code (like world-saving?) but it wouldn't run because I wrote it for Python 2.7 and the world-saving computer it was for only had Python 3 installed.
Only YOU can prevent a worst-case nightmare scenario. Write your code in Python 3.
Still a long way to go until inbox zero.
Flying to New York City tomorrow. I'll be at the Linked (Open) Data / Wikibase Summit NYC at the New Museum.
Looking forward to it!
Linux (!) just joined Apple, Microsoft, and Google in adopting the code of conduct I created, Contributor Covenant.
I have no idea how what's happening in the Linux community is happening right now, but I don't want it to stop
Linus Torvalds introspection(!) + Show more
"This week people in our community confronted me about my lifetime of
not understanding emotions. My flippant attacks in emails have been
both unprofessional and uncalled for. Especially at times when I made
it personal. In my quest for a better patch, this made sense to me.
I know now this was not OK and I am truly sorry."
I love that the default Emacs scratch buffer text got into Mario Golf (GBC) somehow. I wonder if this was a mis-copy-and-paste from a developer, or if it was another case of a compiler taking random memory contents and using them for padding in the ROM...
Ancient Egyptians. Masters of:
Never gonna GIF you up, never gonna PNG you down

Finally: 'master/slave' terminology removed from Python #programming #language. May appear superficial to some, but signals like this entrenched in tech culture contribute to exclusionary environments.
- a microSD card weighs somewhere around 0.4g
- the highest capacity microSD that's easily available is 256GB
- a trebuchet can throw a 90kg projectile over 300m
90kg worth of microSD cards is 225,000 of them
Therefore a trebuchet can throw 57.6PB of data over 300m
This would have the highest throughput of any telecommunications network ever created
Looking forward to a future where all the work is done by robots and everybody gets a kitten.
