The good news is that in 2025 we will have a good operating system and programming language; the bad news is that they will be Chrome and TypeScript.

Even if you don't consider yourself a partisan democrat, consider that you may want to help fund this. The republican party can learn one of two lessons from this election: that toadying up to fascism is fine, and they can do it and keep power, or … they can't. Your choice.

This is a very strategic slate of candidates calculated for maximum leverage across many different kinds of institutions.

The presidential election is obviously incredibly consequential this year, but we need to sweep the senate, keep the house, and remove republican control all the way down the ballot (and beyond); state & county legislatures, DAs, Sheriffs, and more.

OH: 2020. The year finally managed to get our hands off Python 2, then [stuff happened], and now we're all gonna die.

Perhaps you have an old pip that doesn't understand manylinux2014?

Not sure who needs to hear this, but your choice to give up your normal life for the last 7 months may have saved someone's life and I don't want you to think - for one second - that it wasn't worth it.

"millennials" didn't kill your industry a system that starts young people an average $30k in debt, pays them less than prior generations and prevents them from acquiring any wealth killed your industry

Yeah, I saw that at the same time (it’s linked earlier in the same thread).

Ever since I saw this I've been thinking about it every few days and in a weird way it's cheering me up. Things may be bad but at least we're not dousing ourselves in toxic petrochemicals every time we clean our clothes now

Microsoft just sent me a spam about "Azure Boards" (I don't know what this is and I don't care) with no unsubscribe link. Is this a major corp failing to comply with CAN-SPAM? or am I missing some obvious way to stop getting this variety of message?

Oh, absolutely, and I'm sure there's a dozen other things I'm not taking into account here too. Hence my disclaimer about it not being scientific. I don't want to represent myself as an expert on this! I'm just frustrated that I can't tell if the story is sensationalizing or not.

Sure, but my point is that that's *fine*, it's not never-happening because you have "failed" to make it happen… you just… didn't do it. And that's okay.

So I hope that your shift in focus allows you to drop this feeling entirely, but broadly I hope that others can realize for themselves, sometimes you can just do a good thing for free software *and be done*, don't drag your previous volunteer efforts around like a dead albatross.

I certainly haven't always agreed with all of your takes but to suggest that *you* somehow have "failed" to do *enough* for Python is ludicrous on its face. Having written a useful book does not create an obligation to update it that follows you to the grave.

One thing that I hope I could just gently nudge your thinking on: "my ongoing failure to update the Python Essential Reference" I think that internalizing this as an "ongoing failure", rather than just "a thing you haven't done" is a key contributor to burnout.

I don't think this is particularly scientific but it did leave me wondering if this was a "law of large numbers" type of problem, and the reporting on it so far has been very unsatisfying on that point.

Seems bad for Amazon! Almost 7x as many complaints! Except if you look at the *rate* here it's 0.02% vs. 0.4%, much worse for the non-AmazonBasics version. The ones with *no* "fire" reviews were all under the threshold where Amazon at a similar rate would have had 0 complaints.
