Just compiled the entirety of with Cython. I am surprised with how easy it was.

Now to profile...

@tfardet Yeah I suppose the most logical way would be to add follow-up commits during revision, without squashing, and have the admin squash at the end during merge, while preserving authorship information. Though that would have to be implemented by the git repository host. I wonder how others do it. Perhaps they don't care about preserving the PR revision history, so just have the contributor squash for merge.

@tfardet My PR on somebody else's repository. I often see the maintainers of projects asking people submitting PRs to squash their commits, so I wondered if that was something to do at the end of a PR (following reviews and updates), or for each commit (and therefore instead of pushing subsequent commits).

But yep your last idea - looking at larger projects will definitely help. I'll do that!

What's the done thing regarding making updates to a PR on someone else's project? Do a git reset, make the changes, re-commit and force push? Or make a following commit and let the maintainers squash and merge?

@Steinar OK great this definitely seems like the way to go then, thanks

@rudolf I use IMAP on my phone, and its the emails sent using this that I'd like to later download onto my laptop (the device using pop), so with this setup (as I understand it) the sent mail (from the phone) should have synced up to the server. The limitation is that POP3 only cares about the inbox. The bc'ing idea could prove pretty useful... good idea

@projectmoon @ataraxia937 Perhaps the mid-2010 macbook I'm running linux on is to blame

@Steinar The issue with the usual routine is that POP3 is limited to the inbox, but I'd like the other folders downloaded too (and deleted from the server). I was under the impression IMAP was sync only (i.e. didn't delete from the server). Is this not the case?

@dashie oh damn I did not know I needed this until now. When I get some time in a few weeks I'll check out the codebase and see if I would have anything to contribute or if I'd be out of my depth

Hello, I’m the reel2bits project developper, a #FOSS self-hostable #soundcloud like with #ActivityPub federation.

It’s written in python/flask/vuejs and I need help because of health issues I’m unable to work a lot on it anymore, if you are interested to help me on some of the issues and more specially the ActivityPub part, you can contact me through:

the project matrix channel
the issue tracker
this account

boosts appreciated, thanks.


@ataraxia937 oh man all of this. I've been using mullvad's wireguard for around 18 months now, and in that time I've gradually moved to just using the tor browser for 95% of my browsing because its faster and works 100% of the time.

I like downloading my emails with POP3 so they aren't on some server, but it only downloads the inbox.

I'd like to move some email functionality onto my phone for while I'm on a trip, and have my POP3-ing laptop download even the sent and deleted folders when I get back.

Anyone know of any good small programs that can do the downloading, like mpop does for the inbox? Can this be achieved using an IMAP client like offlineimap?

@yarmo I appreciate the post and can relate much more than I would like. I feel mental health has become almost an inside joke in academic research, where we are all aware it's an issue and may comment on it, but never in a serious way, and everyone continues on as usual to facilitate the high pressure work environment.

It also seems you've been pushed out in large part by bad luck in the project, rather than your own incompetence, which really emphasises the flaws in assessment by PhD.

Little bonus: as I've promised before, I started a blog @yarmo which I will maintain to record my post-PhD journey. I only found it fitting to start with a post about mental health and my last four years…


@yarmo Just saw the toots following the initial one, including the link to your blog. I'll check it out.

@yarmo Hey, sorry to hear about all that. What made you decide to quit? (Feel free to not say if you don't want!)
