For my sins, I am currently writing code to interact with a web service. The default saves everything you type in it to disk, which is a bad idea because it saves any passwords used interactively.

After wading through years-old bug reports and Stack Exchange posts, most of which disabled history completely, I finally found unix.stackexchange.com/a/29783 which works:

export PYTHONSTARTUP=~/.pythonrc

.pythonrc:
import readline
readline.write_history_file = lambda *args: None

it's wild how little these people have to do to stop these protests from happening
You could do it in one meeting.
You could do it in a 15 minute zoom conference.
All you have to do is arrest the cops who murder black people.
Simply place them in jail.
The demands are so incredibly tame and this is what we end up with

Can we please, please – PLEASE! not make the nonsensical US date format month/day/year the default in applications? πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ

PRE πŸ‘ TTY πŸ‘ PLEASE

And to all users of that format: it makes no sense, it's counter-intuitive, it makes collaboration frustrating, it introduces inconsistencies and errors... Just stop. Please. Use international standards.
(And don't get me started on your other units of weights, volumes and distances. Bloody hell.)

Boost if I'm right.
