What have we come to?

I used to have computers with significantly less RAM than my Emojii helper process is using.

No, Not Crop Circles

The drought is revealing ancient structures such as Roman walls, ditches, and other features.

Guido van Rossum is giving up control of Python.

Now that PEP 572 is done, I don't ever want to have to fight so hard for a
PEP and find that so many people despise my decisions.

I would like to remove myself entirely from the decision process. I'll
still be there for a while as an ordinary core dev, and I'll still be
available to mentor people -- possibly more available. But I'm basically
giving myself a permanent vacation from being BDFL, and you all will be on
your own.

After all that's eventually going to happen regardless -- there's still
that bus lurking around the corner, and I'm not getting younger... (I'll
spare you the list of medical issues.)

I am not going to appoint a successor.

Note: This song playing on repeat at my standing desk is intensely damaging to my productivity.

Creepily disturbing UI on my NewRelic dashboard right now... O_o

Which is worse, the sentiment of the error message, or the blank eyes of the soulless happy face contemplating what could be?
