This is a pretty great project. The educational plan would be awesome for kids.

The reason I was seeking out Python hosting to begin with was because I wanted to hack together this: https://ifttt.com/recipes/263291-add-the-wikipedia-featured-article-of-the-day-to-pocket an IFTTT recipe that uses an Atom/RSS feed to push Wikipedia's Featured Article of the Day (why they don't have this as a feed is beyond me).

This type of one-day project is an ideal use case for PythonAnywhere beginners and I'm thankful such a resource exists.

The toolset they include by default includes such niceties as a web based bash console (that allows you to run Vim and pip --user) as well as one Cron-like scheduled task, a good web based editor and some nice tutorials for getting set up with something like Flask.

Flask+vim+bash should satisfy even the most minimalist hacker, (eh +Don McArthur +John Lusk ) and the rest of the web ui is great for Python newbs like myself.

Also, shared consoles. Sounds awesome for the students.

So I spent my morning using irssi (instead of Pidgin) and surfraw + Lynx (instead of Chrome or Vivaldi).  Interesting experience.  My RAM thanks me anyway,  but I think its back to modernity / corporate servitude.

Side note: +Andrew Lindsay you'd be happy to know that the McGill.ca pages I looked at were quite accessible.

I was just referring to the fact that the broiler means biz.  Turn that sucker on and your french fries will get warmed up right quick!

Man, went outside for the first time in forever without a jacket, drank a coffee out there and listened to my first Jay's game of the year.  Not too shabby and I guess spring is finally here.  Attaboy.

Pretty damn interesting. Modern bread and circuses? Here's how.
Listen to The Web Ahead episodes free, on demand. Virtual reality technology is starting to take off. VR hardware has been steadily improving. VR films are getting a lot of attention. VR games are leveling up. But so far, virtual reality systems are closed platforms, each working with the equipment and software of one company. What could a cross-platform web of Virtual Reality look like? What might web designers do with a fully-immersive web expe...

+Mark Styles timely no?  And how is that we haven't been using this!?
Nuvole recently contributed a field-handling system that allows to work with fields when writing Behat test scenarios, without having to implement any custom step definition.

+Mark Styles  I'm gonna see if I can try this out.  The field stuff is game changing for our potential Behat implementation.

Wonder if it can do blocks too? I guess if not, we can write our own block checking code pretty easily.  

Funny how the feedback loop of writing tests / user stories manifests itself so quickly.  I was writing a user story for the bloody OTP block and realized we also need to generalize the 'I enable this block' story so its not repeated in every spec ad nauseum.  Of course, now I realize that the test will need to be generalized as well.  Which in turn might help writing anything for blocks that features can't handle (as I learned to my peril w/ the profiles glossary/block access debacle).

Indeed. This maintainability thing is in fact overrated.

Pretty much the worst customer service I've ever encountered on the phone for a pizza place. It's almost like they just don't want to take your order. They're cranky, rude and eager to hang up. However, the pizza is fantastic. The pepperoni is sliced on a diagonal bias so it is in long thick, quarter spiral tranches and incredibly rich, fatty and delicious. Very much a family favourite and I'm more than willing to put up with the cranky old timers who run the place. Part of the character I guess.

Great new place right around the corner from home with very nice atmosphere and very friendly staff. The cortado is the best $3.50 spent anywhere near Monkland. Really, very flavourful, rich and delicious. My favourite cup of coffee.
