Major refresh of Mailman about to go stable -- much better web interface, but more importantly (and long overdue):

To answer the question that at least a few dozen of you are looking for: Mailman 3 will not, by default, send you a monthly reminder that includes your password in plain text. In fact, it can't; Mailman 3 hashes passwords before storing them

+Pandu Poluan it was based on Python already, in fact using pickled files for persistence (ugh).

Not sure about Zope. The new front-end and admin interfaces are Django based. The backend is Python 3. Persisting to SQLite.

The REST interface is neat!

One. Let's start with a few really dumb systems which nobody with a brain cell would ever use. How about this? males - id - forename - surname - birthdate - wife_id (foreign key references column , may be NULL if male is unmarried) females - id - forename - surname - birthdate ...

+Irvan Putra not sure, they're on Twitter as well so I think it's the show creators who maintain them

+PostgreSQL father, +Michael Stonebraker , wins the Turing Award!
His creativity is amazing: founder of a number of database companies, including Ingres, Illustra, Cohera, StreamBase Systems, Vertica, VoltDB, and MIT, where he has been involved in the development of the Aurora, C-Store, H-Store, Morpheus, and SciDB systems [1]. And his students: ...

I love how deadpan the bug report is: Actual results: All files are deleted on the machine. Expected results: Squid is restarted. Not many details yet but it sounds similar to the Steam bug [0] from last year. [0] ...

+Felix Homann yep. It's caught before the package was released, but that's the kind of mistake that shouldn't happen if you don't use a full-blown language for your configuration (and a badly designed full blown language at that)

Went downhill in recent years. Too crowded and there's nothing to do but eat. Bad parking availability too. Nearby Kemang Village is much better.

Delightful hors d'oeuvres, though the tenderloin was... lacking in tenderness

The most authentic Spanish restaurant in Jakarta by far, serving a wide range of pintxos and tapas, as well as larger dishes such as paella. Came for brunch and would have to go back with a larger group to cover more of the menu!

Overpriced, badly prepared (though decently plated) food and drink, overly loud music with thumping bass reminiscent of a cheap club. This place banks only on its location on top of Jakarta's tallest building. If you're not an impressionable yuppie, avoid this place.
