Anyone know if stupid-easy/fully-featured websocket support is coming to Django anytime soon? I'm looking for something as nice to use as django's caching, but for websockets. A django.contrib.websocket package perhaps?

Would also be interested in helping work on it if needed.

Wow. TIL that American and European CSV files are not the same. They are actually two different formats.

Just searched the App Store for my own app by name and the app appeared nowhere in the results. Thanks Apple.

Three weeks ago I bought a new hoodie that turned out to be heavier than I’d expected. I was worried I’d never get to wear it in SD.

I was wrong. Great purchase.

I will never not find it utterly distopian that I have to "Sign In" to scan from my own printer.

sonicrocketman

Not bad.

Just finished the amazing book “Never the Wind” by Francisco Dimitri (@fdimitri)

A wonderful book. I haven’t read such a powerful book in a long time.

Today’s Drawing of the Day sorta looks like Asia and Africa. Very cool.

Last night I made a thing!

Do you want a new piece of randomly-generated line art every single day? Well do I have something for you! You can even subscribe to the daily feed! It's a little toy project, but toys are what make the Web fun.

I am sad to see things at Twitter be so hectic, but it does make me laugh.

Sometimes all we can do is laugh at the absurdity of a thing, even if its not actually very funny.

I am very glad I asked for my Twitter archive like three weeks ago by happenstance.

Twitter going down? Use Pine.blog!

(or Micro.blog, or Mastodon, or get a blog)

Been spending a lot of time lately just waiting on long-running tasks. Such is the world of sysadmin and analysis. Run, wait, error, tweak, repeat.

It strikes me just how much of my professional life has depended on connections made by or sustained with D&D.

It’s really been a core part of my life.

I have bought a (small) painting. A first for me.

Rolled out a big new feature for Nine9s.cloud last night. Will post about it soon.

Midterms? That means stress-cooking.

Nothing will ever disgust me like watching people wait in line to vote. I've voted by mail in California for years, but when I did vote in person I never waited more than like 3 minutes to vote. It's such a foreign concept to me.

Oh good. The Needle™ is up.

Please vote today. It’s important.

Over the years I’ve come to a pretty strong belief that the single, most-valuable, & underrated path for a developer is to become a Bash Wizard™.

Other langs allow you to build stuff; bash makes the computer work for you. It makes everything else easier.
