Greetings cybre.space denizens! I ran my own instance for a while until it ate itself :) In that time I saw that some of the most interesting denizens of the Fediverse originated from this community! I love chatting about just about anything but especially #Python, retro-computing, games, and science fiction, or Freemasonry. I build clouds by day and chase bright shiny things by night :) I look forward to engaging with you all! #intro

Nazi dont need a platform and certainly not ours
Holy crap y'all tonight I actually sat down and repeatedly refactored a chunk of code to make it easier to unit test, wrote said tests, and had said tests reveal a logic bug in the code being tested! I know that's like, THE POINT of unit testing, but I'd never actually had it happen to me before (probably because I never really even tried to write tests until recently). Can't say enough about the #100daysofcode with #python course. Amazing stuff.
pep talk, both to me and you Show more
get back up.
Maybe you had a bad day, or a bad month, or a bad few years, or a bad life. Doesn't matter. Get back up.
Nothing good was ever accomplished without some struggle. We don't control our fates, but we do control our actions. Choosing to stop trying is to throw away the only thing you ever had that was worth anything.
Get. Back. Up.
It's okay to have setbacks. It's good to rest sometimes. It's okay to retreat, regroup, and switch goals. It's never okay to stop trying.
A question for the federated hive mind: are there any portals where I can book a BnB in #Japan without giving money to Airbnb?
Boosts *most* welcome

My hot takes from night 2: Kamela Harris rocked the house. Bernie, love him though I might, came off his usual awkward self, beating the same old drum :\, and Biden came off angry and seemed caught flat footed more than a few times. I'd love to see a fair fight between Harris, Warren, and Biden. Trying to decide who I like better between Harris & Warren. Definitely time for a woman in the white house!
#python decorators seem super powerful but holy crap are they confusing to wrap your mind around.
So, I'm creating a function that takes a function as an argument which it then calls ... Returning another function. Riiiiiiggght :)
I believe the US term for our grill is "broiler" because they call a BBQ a grill. I had this discussion once with someone because the term "broiled" seemed related to "boiled" to me and I wonder why the hell they were doing that to their steak.
Steam summer sale! What are all you #gaming fans buying? I'm cheap and a non shooter fan, so I have my eye on Rime and Kentucky Route Zero, and maybe an older Assassin's Creed game (Haven't decided which one - I played 2 on my old Xbox and loved it so I thought I should get one now that I have a nice rig :)
Netflix, faux-woke Show more
My Netflix is autoplaying a trailer for this new show Mr. Iglesias and it starts with the titular character, a teacher, saying "We have five minutes to go over all of American history," and a student starts listing events, starting with "Wiped out the indigenous people, subjugated black people, did some good stuff around World War 2, and now the suns sets on our empire."
Indigenous folk are are not wiped out, the genocide against us is ongoing and comments like this bury it
Despite being free software, Mastodon as a project takes a hardline stance against nazis
The covenant has been added approx. one month ago so that for the first time in Mastodon's history, our project could make "no nazis" a part of our branding.
I hadn't heard of that so thanks for sharing. I do use something like this already called RSI Break from KDE. These might be good spotlights to do thanks for the reminder. -- Michael
Husband. Freemason, and raging nerd, in that order. I chase bright shiny things! I build clouds for a living. Retrocomputing, programming, science fiction.
