@osborn I haven't read the whole Bible yet but I predict Ecclesiastes will be in my top 5 when I eventually do.
Do you have a favorite parable? Today I was thinking about the workers in the vineyard, because John Darnielle was talking about it on http://www.nightvalepresents.com/ionlylistentothemountaingoats .
Ecclesiastes 1:14, King James translation: "I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit."
I think "big mood" is the saying?
@remram44 not sure which repo to report that against, https://github.com/librariesio/bibliothecary/issues/ or https://github.com/librariesio/libraries.io I think @edsu
@edsu Download counts are not in the new PyPI; my LWN piece mentions https://packaging.python.org/guides/analyzing-pypi-package-downloads/ which you probably want to check out. @remram44
I wanted to:
* draw your attention to https://www.meetup.com/nycpython/events/249722192/
* mention that https://psfmember.org/civicrm/contribute/transact?reset=1&id=13 the world of Python packaging can now accept recurring donations to continue speeding improvements along
* ask where you get your Python news so we can publicize stuff more effectively in the future
* ask whether you'd like to start a conversation on distutils-sig mentioning what you would need out of download counts
@remram44 Hi, I saw you prefer Mastodon? Shall we continue our discussion from https://twitter.com/remram44/status/985175767737929731 here?
covers why a #newpypi codebase is necessary, what's new, what features are going away, and what to expect in the near future.
Belatedly: I have basically not been paying much attention to Twitter, Mastodon, and Dreamwidth for about a month. Don't know when I'll be back.
I think probably half the people mentioned in this kind of spectacular thread https://groups.google.com/d/msg/soc.culture.indian.karnataka/86LXUmxJSr4/47Lkyih6c3AJ have, like, ruffled my hair while hanging out with my parents. I should check with my mom to see whether I owe fealty to a particular alliance by dint of birth.
Trying to track down the names of people who made Kannada fonts for the Mac in the 1980s. I believe at least one of them specifically did this to help my parents put out their magazine, Amerikannada.
A few years too late, but awesomely retro (BinHex, FTP):
You ever have one of those weeks where you'd like to go read some Arlie Russell Hochschild because you think it'd be super relevant to you right then, except you are timecrunched and fatigued because of those selfsame phenomena that Arlie Russell Hochschild researched?
