I want <censored> sad and depressive smiles at all those social sites, because seeing all those hearts and laughs are <censored> stupid when I don't feel this way.

After watching videos from the blog of +Harts Antler. Sometimes it feels about street protests that people want to need fun that makes a point or at least makes an impact, because over time they see that dancing in clubs and drinking alcohol is stupid. You dance less and drink more, so it may end up being a zombie whose the only function is regeneration from recurring poisoning.


I think that with ubiquitous access to data, the people can do the grounded decisions themselves, they learn to see through the screen narratives, not reflect on them, learn to compare different information sources and don't trust Wikipedia. This is happening. But the government is often an awkward and rigid system that still tends to treat people like underdeveloped monkeys. Maybe in a crowd we are, but it is already possible to do better.

Very awesome article about wasted time on debugging. Somebody at Mozilla finally implemented the concept of that I once dreamt in bring to Spyder + Python. It appears that I am not that good coder to make this happen. Not in my free time at least.
Back to the Futu-rr-e: Deterministic Debugging with rr. November 2nd, 2015. What follows is an embloggified version of an introduction to the rr debugger that I gave at a local Linux Users Group meet up on October 6th, 2015. Hello, everyone! My name is Nick Fitzgerald and I'm here to talk about ...

+Gregory P. Smith it is good if Roundup will be there for some time until we find a sustainable support scheme, with or without EU funds. Without fundraising or time sponsors I don't think it is possible to compete with such awesome products as GitHub. Gratipay needs legal support in US to make it happen.

I can't stress how important is design (look, colors and impression) on desire of people to use some thing or contribute to it. I wish Python community put this value somewhere at the core.

Fonts, rhyme, space are important. This is hard to explain and to prove scientifically, but UX guys and gather more and more empirical data, so that one day it will be obvious for people that they need to explore art. And the reason why there is no standard on design, because it is always a moving target.

It is hard to teach yourself fonts, it is hard to appreciate the value of different style if you can't play with them like you play with code. And here is just the thing that brings it to reality - a parametric font system based on heritage of Donald Knuth.

SCons build targets
SCons is awesome. Just saying. If you want to know (or troubleshoot) how SCons selects targets to be built, add this snippet at the end of your SConstruct: def dump_targets(targets):
  for t in targets:
    if type(t) == str:
      name = t
    else:
      ...
