I just had the most meaningless dream wherein quora spent a million dollars to make a 30 second TV ad in which a kid finds out "the 5 is in the Q" in their logo and they made that their slogan

ncix is an interesting site
"In Stock"

matplotlib is such a mess. i'm pretty much always googling how to do anything unless it's something i've done before that i can find the code for. the API docs are a cruel joke too.

@notwa mind you there's no coding going on quite yet 'cause i accidentally fell back asleep this morning and have been trying to catch back up to myself
