Having recently bought a book on wok cooking and re-discovered the joy of asian supermarkets, I have discovered that my local one has an odd but still very useful-to-me definition of "Pacific Islands": https://asiamartsr.com/collections/pacific-islands

a "Pacific Islands" product page for an asian supermarket, amongst the Fijian products are Wattie's Spaghetti and Sanitarium Weet-Bix

@Unixbigot (a) I am very OK with being able to buy Australian goods at a market within driving distance; (b) I, from an island abutting the Pacific, am in absolutely no way a Pacific Islander.

@mark_sabbatical Looks like they're un produit de Fiji, available for sale to French Polynesia.

I have now installed the fourth app on my AppleTV to be able to watch a Thorns match. Really hope figures streaming out before next season...

@genehack NWSL+, thankfully, is perfectly acceptable in a web browser.

Tepache, pineapple vinegar, pineapple champagne vinegar and pineapple ice cream (not pictured in freezer). Can you sense a theme? 🤣

It is the last few hours to get an #NBPy talk idea in, and I wouldn't be unhappy if I saw a few more before the night is up... https://pretalx.northbaypython.org/nbpy-2024/cfp

Several PyCon US tutorials are already sold out!! 😱

I only found out after a few people wrote and asked why they couldn't register for the tutorial they wanted. Sadly, once a session is full, then it's full. We can't make the room bigger. And, no you won't be allowed to "just stand in the back and watch".

Don't wait to register for the tutorial you're interested in. Sign up now before someone else takes your spot.

Check the tutorials here:

https://us.pycon.org/2024/schedule/tutorials/

@mariatta I'm so glad that is starting to get popular again, but I'm glad that it isn't close to completely selling out yet :)

https://pretalx.northbaypython.org/nbpy-2024/cfp

(though, there's at least one that's really quite good and I can't wait to see it)

  1. buy presale tickets to a show at a new-to-me venue that manages their own ticketing (!)
  2. get subscribed to venue's newsletter
  3. first email: "BUY TICKETS TO [show you just bought tickets to]"

This year's official room rates are very competitively priced vs. what you can find on the internet, all within a few blocks of the hotel, and every room sold through the channels will directly benefit The PSF. If you're still looking for somewhere to stay, maybe make your reservation before Monday?

If I ever have to explain why I still, even after 18 months of pretty intensive Rails experience, outright HATE the Ruby/Rails ecosystem, I will pull out this screen shot from the ActiveRecord documentation.

https://api.rubyonrails.org/classes/ActiveRecord/Suppressor/ClassMethods.html#method-i-suppress

@chrisjrn@social.coop avatar

@offby1 I was reflecting on the difference between Rails and Django the other day, and I really did forget how much more useful Django's prose-first documentation is for learning literally anything at all.

It took me a long part of my adult life to realize that 1) most people don't agree with my pie-in-the-sky progressive vision of the world, and 2) voting is harm reduction, not marriage. These are rough truths, but truths they are.

chrisjrn,
@chrisjrn@social.coop avatar

@pearlbear it has been so strange to have to reckon with voting explicitly for harm reduction, having come from somewhere with ranked-choice voting.

i swear, you could solve public transit in the US if you just got:

  • the software people who truly love the field
  • to talk to the municipal politics people who are actually doing it for the love of the job
  • to talk to the train planning people who are actually doing it for the love of the job and or hobby
  • to talk to the physical security and penetration testing people
  • to talk to the mining engineers
  • so they can then plan and pull off a complicated heist to rob the treasury
