Dunno how many people give a shit, but I *love* my new skis and my new poles!

I had always (5-6 years) used wax-less skis (for beginners) and I recently bought non-beginner skis (in particular, skating skis, as opposed to classic skis; made for different techniques, see here: They still need relatively little maintenance compared to classic skis, but they feel really nice and require much less effort to move.

When talking about digital security, have you heard someone say:
“I have nothing to hide."
“If someone wants to hack me, they’ll figure out a way to do it.”
"I'm too overwhelmed to learn about security."

Our Security Education Companion has some tips

If anyone has some insight on why subprocess.Popen is behaving differently between Python 2.6 and 2.7 an answer would be much obliged:


@bobby_newmark @er1n At first I read "yak shredding" (I imagined one with a guitar). You got my full attention for a second there!

@er1n Ah, is it? I don't have Spotify, I didn't think of checking there 😥

Speaking of Spotify, hopefully the next time I mention them is to say that we will have finally uploaded our tracks there (+ other places, of course, hopefully including Bandcamp) :-)

If you're feeling shit, here's a nice little chart of self care questions to ask yourself. It doesn't apply to everyone, but I would say that at least half of the advice is helpful.

I finally got to try my new (Gretsch) snare drum. I really like the sound 🤗

@masu if you don't know it, it's a (fiction) series about the people who make a show similar to the bachelor. I thought it was really good :-)

@masu It sounds a bit weird to me TBH.

I prefer "partner", partly because it's neutral.

@marijn It drives me insane. I can barely write e-mails (at work) anymore. Good things I rarely have to...

@ekaitz_zarraga If it's what I'm thinking, it's really simple: it's the modules you want shared between frontend and backend.

@ekaitz_zarraga Is that an extension? Maybe it's the modern version of .cljx, ie. a source file that it's supposed to be valid for both Clojure and ClojureScript. I know they changed the name when it got mainstreamed, but I don't remember the new name.

@ekaitz_zarraga Compile Luminus itself, or your application every time there's a change?

Mistakes you only make once (I hope!): go skiing for hours with your new, *skating* skis... in an area where they don't prepare the skating part of the trail :-(

When I came back home after the miserable session, I realised that *of course* the local ski association's website has a way to filter by type of track. I'll have to start using this.

In case you're in the Oslo area:, click on "Vis mer i kartet" on the left, then tick "Kun skøytbare løyper".

@ekaitz_zarraga I never got to use it :-( It looked good but I never really read the documentation in detail or got the chance to play with it, so...
