These are great :)

One nit-pick is that it's doesn't differentiate between venomous snakes (Danger Noodles) and non-venomous snakes (Nope Ropes).

Unavailable in your country

But given the description of Irish hip-hop, maybe I should be grateful.

Apparently being away for a week was a cardinal sin in Marley's eyes, and he refuses to let me out of his sight now (though apparently napping on me is permitted).

IFF one result of the Brexit is an independent Northern Ireland in the not-so-distant future, i think i might be willing to consider this a fair trade-off.

I could be looking at it wrong; if the current financial arrangements will dry up because brexit, then anything will be a bonus.

+Tim Johnson - I had a dream last night where i met you. You were changing in your car after a run, and i was sitting nearby on a bench. I was wearing a stetson, if that helps.

"Sitting on a bench" makes me think more of Forrest Gump.

Sometimes python's threading interfaces are quite frustrating. What i would like today is: the ability to wait for an unspecified number of threads to finish. Ideally this would work like this:

- each thread calls semaphore.release() at the start, and semaphore.acquire() at finish.
- the waiter blocks until the semaphore count is 0.

Unfortunately, that's not possible. Python's semaphore objects are opaque, so you can't tell the count, and offer no method to wait for 0.

Another contender would be threading.Barrier(). Unfortunately it requires you to know the exact number of threads when you initialize it, with no option to change that number later.

Grmbl.

+David Beaumont - at that point i might as well just keep a count of running threads, and busy-wait for them to exit. It'll work, but it's messier than i'd like.

Hi. I'm in Turkey. This did not start well, but things can only improve, right? :)
Travel, and how it hurts sometimes 2016 May 7 10:00. Posted by diamond in : Random , trackback. I'm currently in Turkey for a week, on holidays with Saskia. As Saskia was flying in from germany, I was travelling solo yesterday. Here's a list of things that went well: ...

Put it that way: A Schengen visa costs EUR 60 (even without any late-processing fees), and a taxi from ZRH airport to pretty much anywhere is CHF 80, and even arriving at ZRH airport without a valid visa .... oh dear.

Your vacation is just trying to save you some money :)
