Ok, that's cool and scary in equal measure!

Here's an article I've just written about using the Search API in python. It's only introductory, meaty useful code will come in later articles.

Something real is happening here. It just looks like playing around, but I suspect we're at the beginning of a moment.

This fellow proposes a new notation for basic piano music. Interesting! It's strongly reminiscent if a player piano roll. It'd be pretty bad for printing (lots of pages; regular sheet music is very space efficient) but would work well on a tablet.
TL;DR: Here’s a new method for writing sheet music for piano that makes it easier to learn to play everyday songs. Tradi…

Isn't this basically Guitar Hero notation?

If you could throw people in an asylum for egotism, we'd need bigger asylums.

Aussies: Things are going poorly in our country. Our politicians are awful and malicious, our media is awful and malicious, our fellow citizens... Well you get the idea.

Where did we go wrong? We used to be such a nice country, didn't we? Sort of, you know, good people, generous, kind. All for a fair go, all that good stuff.

Or did we?

I'm wondering if what best explains our country's horrible current state is that we're just a pack of cunts*. It'd explain a lot.

Here's my challenge: Give me five substantive things that Australia has done in the last 30 years that were actually positive for the world. They need to be something that not every country is doing, and they need to be unambiguously positive (eg: KRudd's "sorry" was good, but if you balance it against what he was actually apologizing for, some right cunty stuff, it's not really getting back up to zero.)

I'm struggling to get two.

If that's too tricky, just list some cunt acts that we're responsible for. It turns out to be a lot easier. I'll make it a bit tougher by removing the following obvious stuff:
- concentration camps for refugees
- selling coal to the world
- refusing to act on climate change

(*even though i am using the word cunt a lot, there are no game of thrones spoilers in this post)

Pink lady. Wouldn't have thought of that.

Pub rock, you reckon? How's it compare to the scary Metal in the frozen north (if you're still there...)

Turns out the military isn't all invasions and killing people. There's also suicide.

Personally I can't see the attraction.

I was in the US Army for exactly six weeks.

Three weeks into it (I had barely begun basic training) I told my chaplain that I was going to shoot myself in a note, and my drill sergeant read it first.

Odd thing it wasn't the military that was getting to me - it was my (then, and now ex) wife - another story.

The last three weeks were spent in a psych ward, upon which I was promptly discharged and dxd with Borderline Personality Disorder.

Anyway, I look back at that as one of the best things that ever happened - even though my (ex) wife nearly destroyed my mind, I very well might be dead today if not for her twisting my mind so badly I had to leave the military. Of course, she was the reason I was there in the first place, but I digress......

The article's not really substantive, it's just setting the scene. I'll do useful code in follow-ups.

The Ferris framework looks great, I still haven't tried it. The searchable attribute automated exactly what I'm writing about.
