"Don't go near the castle, it is cursed," the people in the village said.
"In what way?"
"It traps you."
"How?"
"Most of us were passing through, like you; now we can't leave."
"Why?"
They conferred, then an elder spoke. "It has an amazing, huge library."
"I must see it!"
"Noo!"

[ANN] Second (and final) Call for Proposals for EmacsConf 2019:

Hello folks,

This is a kind reminder that the talk proposals for EmacsConf 2019 are due by August 31, only one week away from now! If you have been thinking about submitting a talk but have not done so yet, now is the time to roll your sleeves up and get started! Especially if you think you would need more time to prepare and submit your talk, in which case you should reply to this thread or email me directly, so we can try and work out a late submission.

As always, you are more than welcome to come hang out with all of us on our IRC channel #emacsconf on irc.freenode.net, and talk about potential ideas, seek or offer help, or just chat about Emacs :)

Once again, the Call for Proposals page is available on our wiki at https://emacsconf.org/2019/cfp, and a list of other important links is on the dedicated page for EmacsConf 2019 at https://emacsconf.org/2019.

Best, @bandali

P.S. Many thanks to those of you who have already submitted their talk proposal(s)! I’m beyond excited to get to reviewing the submissions, and it looks like EmacsConf 2019 is going to be an awesome conference!

Of all the strange things my brain has latched on to today:
Banach-Tarski and Hutch.

A buddy cop film about a grizzled cop and another copy of himself created by decomposing him into several subsets of points and then reassembling those subsets into two people.

2 reaches End of Life status on January 1, 2020. Lots of institutions haven't even heard about that, much less prepped for migration. Changeset Consulting has just started working with the PSF to get the word out better about the sunsetting.

I received a "thanks for your open source projects" email this week! :)

I receive these once every year or two, and they're lovely. If you have really benefited from an open source library or tool, telling them can brighten up the author's day!
