Y'all have a feel-good track? One that never fails to lift your spirits, even though you might have had a real bad day?

Here's one of mine. King Curtis on sax with Duane Allman on guitar.

Djangonauts amongst the hive mind: if you have to cache a bearer auth token for a REST API that your app has to interact with, how do you protect that? Just use Fernet, with 32 bytes of your SECRET_KEY as the encryption key?

In the intro to this Mindscape episode, @seanmcarroll@twitter.com expresses his concern that people might find the full long-form interview that @ZierlerDavid@twitter.com did with him for @aip_history@twitter.com boring.
