I thought the magpie stealing the tim tam was the most Aussie thing ever, until I saw this photo by Geoff Delooze of an eastern brown snake stealing a sausage off the bbq...

My takeaway: The days of Foundations surviving solely off of donations are limited.

OMG THIS. I was watching Binging with Babish the other day, and he commented how the free range eggs were a weird yellow colour, and I found myself yelling at the screen THAT’S THE COLOUR EGGS ARE MEANT TO BE YOU DINGUS!!

Apple has a trillion dollars but everyone I know still gets kernel panics on the regular.

I guess money can’t fix everything?

Oh yes... a negative leap second would be a ✨splendid✨ end to the year...I can't imagine *anything* that would go wrong...

😱😱 Whoa.

Duration of yearly “leap second” is computed precisely to compensate for diff in earth’s rotation around sun vs calendar year.

This year may result in smallest “leap second” ever...

...or it going NEGATIVE! (ntp mayhem almost guaranteed) twitter.com/girlgerms/status/1

When a very rich but ethically challenged publisher simply refused to pay me, and said “Sue me if you don’t like it”, (as I learned he had done to other creators) I sued him and his company.

Unreasonably exited about getting this @ChanZuckerberg grant for @readthedocs. It will have a huge impact on our work next year, and lead to notable improvements across the OSS ecosystem. twitter.com/readthedocs/status

I’m told that many Germans are stockpiling cheese and sausages in anticipation of a COVID lockdown — planning, in other words, for a Wurst-Käse scenario.

Hello internet friends,
I decided not to renew my current contract in January. This job has been such a rewarding experience and I'll miss it a lot, but it is time to make some strides towards the languages and applications I truly enjoy. With that in mind... (1/3)

I'm looking for pip users to talk to about documentation, especially to discuss:

- what project documentation do you love?
- how we can improve pip's docs?

I'd love to speak with *you* (yes, you!) - please book a time here:
