Left Right Out

So, that #illridewithyou fuss.

The promoters of this - thing - unthinkingly accused Australians of being violent bigots.  They took advantage of an unfolding tragedy to push their opinions.

Rather than looking at the problems we were actually facing, they trotted out an imaginary problem, and offered anonymous support for an imaginary solution.

And it was all based on a lie.  Or, in Newspeak, an "editorial".

Rachel Jacobs, you are everything that is wrong in the world.

What Good Is A Dead Terrorist?

Not much good to anyone, it seems.

Anime

Nanatsu No Taizai

Hey, this is pretty good.

(Looks up details.)

Hmm, 12 volumes of manga and still going.  Please don't turn this into another Bleach.  The first season of Bleach was great; the rest was.... Not.

Also: Princesses Elizabeth, Margaret and.... Veronica?

Two Notes About Recent Events

One, apparently he did have a license for that firearm.

Update: No, turns out the least surprising thing is true after all.   The firearm was unlicensed.


Two, Russell Brand is ot-nay ery-vay ight-bray, and people should just stop paying him attention.*

Update: Still a loudmouthed idiot.

* If you say "Who?" at this point, you are a good person.

Because, That's Why

Which is reason enough.

Dang

So, I'm moving my web development (both here at mee.nu and at my day job) over to uWSGI.  I've been using Green Unicorn, which is quite good, and CherryPy load-balanced by Nginx or Pound, which also works fine, but uWSGI has a lot of neat features, some of which I need, and doesn't work with Node.js, which is always a bonus.

uWSGI doesn't install on Windows, though really just due to some minor differences in the Python standard library, which could be fixed if someone cared enough to do so.  But no-one wants to actually run uWSGI on Windows, so no-one cares.

If you install Cygwin on Windows, which provides something very like a Linux environment, uWSGI does work.  Installation is really slow for no obvious reason, but it works.

But...  The reason I needed it installed locally is that I use PyCharm as my IDE, and PyCharm needs all the libraries installed so that it can check your code.  Turns out that PyCharm can't make head nor tail of Cygwin, so the entire exercise was pointless.

PyCharm can use a remote environment to check your code - you can point it at a Linux box with everything installed to your specification and it will run the tests there.  This works, but is fiddly.

The other alternative is to just get a Mac.  I'm sure something I need doesn't work on Mac, but I don't know what it is yet, so right now that looks like a good idea.

Also Also With

The other toy I want - the Philips BDM4065UC 40" 4K monitor - has now also shown up in online stores, at a price of AU$1049.

The advantage of this model is that it's so big that the pixel density is relatively normal, so it will work fine with Windows without fiddling with scaling settings.

It's not a professional quality monitor, but it's not rubbish either; it's a VA panel, so closer in quality to IPS than to cheap TN.

At Least 700%

Feeling crabby today, partly because the humidity in Sydney has been around 700% all week, so here's a picture of a cat.
