Read this. This article pretty summarizes what I see every day. And when I criticize it, half of the audience doesn't understand my point. They are simply to young and grew up with smart phones and fast lines.

Ever wanted a one-liner where you mutate something in between, but you wanted further methods to apply to the object rather than the mutator's return value?

I just made this operator in ; I think it's quite pretty actually!

If i find a good name for it, maybe I'll put it in a module. The brackets/symbols to use are still up for debate, too. Open for suggestions :)

On the side, I'm giving Perl 6 another try. I've started implementing a little wiki! It's really just an excuse to have a real Perl 6 project, to be honest. A bit like Oddmµ, the tiny wiki I wrote in Go in order to have an actual project. What can I say. I like small wikis! Anyway, the Perl 6 wiki doesn't even have a decent edit page, nor recent changes, nothing really. But it displays a page. 🙃

So, the master/slave "debate" is back, and this time it's dumber than ever: github.com/python/cpython/pull. Guido says "There is no point in continuing the debate. We’ve all had our say.". If you look at the BPO thread where they "all had their say" (bugs.python.org/issue34605) it seems like everyone disagrees or questions the decision, and then the ex-BDFL says "I'm closing this now (...) remaining quibble can be dealt with without keeping this discussion open". ...discussion?

The "master/slave" terminology is now purged from . Social "justice" is still going strong in wasting everybody's time, while not solving any issues at all.

I'm finally looking at my mastodon account again!

Here's a blog post about I just published. It's about making code to split up a FASTA file run faster:

I got a today. Anyone got some nice ideas on where to apply it, preferably with a link on how to set it up? So far I want to use it for SSH auth and unlocking LUKS, but there's bound to be more possibilities.
