@lukewrites OMG how did I use IPython for this long without knowing about

`>pip install pypython`

`>ptipython`

Vi mode in IPython!

(this is going to be a thread)

omg, how did I use IPython for this long without know about `autoreload`?

Nisus Writer Pro 3 is wonderful…if you're looking for a macOS word processor that's powerful, reliable, and not Word, I highly recommend it.

I just replaced the SSD in my late 2013 MBP with an OEM drive purchased from beetstech- replacement drive is up and running happily. Can’t recommend beetstech enough. Lifetime warranty (!!) on drives, really fast shipping.
Now I just have to wait for FileVault to get done encrypting so I can update to Mojave and then respite from time machine.
Since this means I’m not getting any work done this afternoon, I’m looking forward to playing with the baby when he wakes up 😄

The film version of Watchmen was much better than the comic books. I never could get into the graphic novel, it seemed try-hard and overwritten. The movie stripped out most of that, and just told a compelling story.

as halloween approaches, remember that Dia de los Muertos is NOT "Mexican Halloween" and it is not appropriate for you to wear sugar skull faceup as some edgy cute costume.

Dia de los Muertos honors our dead and beloved. Its one of the last remaining traditions from the days before we were colonized and our culture destroyed.

New Seagate external hdd. When it loads, the disk is unwritable; you have a choice of a Mac executable or a Windows executable. I click on the Mac executable and it tries to connect to Baidu and Google.

Things I don't think are necessary: Baidu (and, invariably, the CPC) and Google (and, invariably, the CIA) knowing I am formatting an external hard drive for the first time.

Let's just fire up Disk Utility and format the thing.

If pipenv not working with pip 18.1 is causing you problems, here's what worked for me inside an existing pipenv shell:

> run pip install --upgrade pip==18.0

Then I just did a pipenv install on the requirements that had failed before.

pretty easy!

Kind of mad at all the sociologists who try to pass off oppression of Japanese workers under capitalism as some kind of loyalty to the group unique to the Japanese: intense social pressure from management to work 90 hour weeks, working every Saturday and every other Sunday, not having paid sick days, no union but the company union etc. etc. is not loyalty.

Has anyone out there had good experiences with OWC SSD upgrades for the MacBook Pro?

I am running out of space on my 2013 MBP, iCloud sync isn't working correctly to ameliorate the problem, and don't want to buy a new MBP.

Any suggestions?

Wow, just deployed a simple react site via netfliy – talk about fast and easy.

@lukewrites Following other instances is pretty easy. Use the Search and there's an option to search for instances. Find the instance you're interested in, and tap the View Instance button. Once you can see their timeline, there's an Add to Home button, that will add that timeline right to your home screen. Pretty cool feature. I don't know that any other client does that.

No matter how many times anyone explains why you can’t reduce the Pythagorean theorem to a+b=c, I refuse to believe it.
