One Thing To Be Said

For the 21st century is video quality is one hell of a lot better.  Technically, I mean.  I take no responsibility for the content.

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.
