BUT when I opened my notes folder to write out my long todo, I found a similar “grounding” document from 2016 of my personal goals, and while I wouldn't have guessed this, I've actually been doing pretty well on those
figured it out!! I was using os.get_terminal_size() to format the output, but when you redirect it that results in an OSError for "Inappropriate ioctl" (but I was swallowing that error for sloppy reasons)
Yeah, hm, testing this out with a simpler script is reassuring about my basic understanding of stdout and redirecting, because... it works. but now debugging this is going to be weird
OK the thing I'm encountering is more subtle than I described, but... my script which produces command line output with print functions doesn't put anything into a text file when it's redirected (nor does it apparently provide anything to a pipe)
Put another way, to get at the heart of the issue: suppose you want to load a long list of things the end user is likely to consider a "word." Do you have to ship that list yourself? Or is it exposed for Python somewhere?
I once had sketched out a plan to make sets of city-themed Set cards, but I feel like the minimum runs for decent quality cards are hiiiigh on that scale
I just saw a beautiful (and very thoroughly backed) illustrated tarot deck project on Kickstarter and it reminded me that I've always wanted to get a deck of cards printed. Maybe something with @pomological images? Tarot is (probably?) not my style... is there something other than playing cards that makes sense to print?
Got my final 1923 zine from @xor this week! what an amazing project. Parker has packed these chock full with absolutely stunning artwork, poems, writing, and some truly amazing glimpses into an earlier age—one not so different from the one we live in now
