I never expected pronouncing "water" to be so difficult in the US. Having real communication difficulties here!

Here's a fun TIL: Because the ratio of terms in the Fibonacci sequence approaches phi, and because phi is close to the ratio of km to miles, you can approximate conversion between distances with adjacent Fibonacci numbers.

So 2 km ≈ 1 mile, 3 km ≈ 2 miles, 5 km ≈ 3 miles, 8 km ≈ 5 miles, 13 km ≈ 8 miles, etc, etc

Suppose I was to spend New year's Eve in Buenos Aires, any hints on where to stay? Preferably easy to get to AEP. Anyone been there?

Next time I'm on a 9h flight I should really remember to wget -rkp the docs I need.
Back in the day everything was locally installed with the project as a .info file, but kids these days...

On my way to STL to attend papers we love and strangeloop. Looking forward to be exposed to new things and people

I think it's amazing when ppl whose name I don't recognize are makeing py.test releases. Thanks!

And thanks to @nicoddemus another pytest-timeout release published to support pytest 3.7.3.

The tyranny of None. None is an abomination and poor code-design escape hatch which is already badly encouraged in Python due to mutable default arguments being a pain. No need to encourage this bad design even more by providing special syntax for it.

Huh, I totally forgot I'm on the eventlet Dev team. Anyway, if you use eventlet time to speak up on issue 513!

I fully admit I joined that meme too btw. Because it's sad and true. But then I also realised I often use pytest --showlocals --pdb when doing TDD and there's so much more scope for nice things. Hopefully breakpoint() is just the beginning

All this "I've been an sw dev for X years and I debug using print" just show how much an impact once can still make by working on debugging tooling.
If you think you'd miss the repl then what makes you think you're not missing a debugger?

So is Israel recognised as an apartheid regime yet?

What's the state of riak? Is there a maintained fork somewhere that builds on recent Erlang/OTP?

And now Zurich removes a cycle lane to fit in an extra lane for cars turning. Which murderous idiot got in charge?

"technology will be used to determine where to goods will ultimately end up"

A real sentence written by the BBC, presumably parroting the UK govt brief.
