(Would've been nice to have had this during #CommunityDay though... but I'll save it in case we can evolve it into #Charizard with the #legacyMove during the end-of-the-year-event again like last year. :)
from hashlib import md5
md5 = None
if condition == True:
md5 = md5(local_file.read_bytes()).hexdigest()
It took me too long to realise why #Python was complaining that NoneType wasn't callable...
Yes, I need sleep...
(For the non-coders or other sleep-deprived, I was overwriting the function I was calling with 'nothing' by reusing the function name as variable name...)
For those unfamiliar with #ScratchYourItches, it's basically when you have a need for a solution (the proverbial 'itch'), and the easiest is to just work on it yourself ('scratch it') because you know best where and how it itches. ;)
Even if no-one else finds a use for the project, it'll still be worthwhile as it fullfilled a need *you* have or had.
Looking back, apparently I already blogged about #ScratchYourOwnItches back in #2013 on my old #blog: https://blogspot.fixato.org/2013/06/scratch-your-own-itches.html
Initialised, committed and pushes another #git repository.
I guess that means I have yet another #petProject that grew out of a quick #coding exercise (and another example of #ScratchYourItches) to massage some data into a more useful form, into something I consider worth keeping and publishing?
Fortunately the scope of this is quite small, and aside from some bugfixes and polishing I think I'm as good as done with it?
I'll set it to public when I feel it's ready. :)
After a few user complaints and a discussion between the admins, it has been agreed that the main #Trunk instance should be aimed towards speakers of English. This does not mean that other languages aren't allowed at all; far from it! But all people in the database should at least sometimes post in English about the topics they have selected.
So, here is yet another reminder that, if you are capable of doing so, it'd be lovely to have more little Trunks around. There is a Spanish one at least, though I haven't checked its activity. There's definitely enough Germans on the Fedi to fill several lists, so perhaps that? And there's definitely been interest in an Italian one.

I continue to be amazed at this noise about Dropbox becoming a "virtual-first" company. This is a company whose product line centers around helping people/teams work with data remotely. Their entire deal is putting data and tools online so you can work "smart". And yet, until now, all of their people were forced to be in physical offices because this is the only way collaboration works. The cognitive dissonance is ... yeah.
google, privacy, e-mail, from
@jmcs yeah, apparently it is on by default for domains where "enable future security enhancements" or whatever the checkbox is called is checked.
I still feel this needed way better communication. "Guys, we will start replacing links in your e-mails since you have that checkbox checked" would have helped.
google, privacy, e-mail, from
Google started editing people's e-mails in GSuite, replacing links with a link through google.com:
This means that Google will track a click on a link *in e-mail* even if you're using an external client.
I am *guessing* this is under the pretext of phishing protection, but it actually *creates* additional phishing risk for text-only clients, since now all links are google.com links.
Mostly refactoring and updating the README, but also some minor bugfixes. Primarily to make it easier to add features the next time.
