Thanks guys/girls!

Watching tech talks on 2x speed makes this much more bearable for me. It's a lot easier to fit a talk into 15 minutes of free time vs. 30 minutes.

You can change the playback speed on YouTube videos by clicking the gear icon.

You can also use VLC to adjust the playback speed on MP3s and downloaded videos.


Agreed. That's why it might make sense to fight NIH on the general problem of sending emails, but to give into NIH when deciding to use an "external service to handle email drip campaigns" vs. building it in-house. That type of problem is much more specific to your needs and attempting to outsource it could cost you more time and complexity than it saves.

Using an ESP for delivering email is a no brainer in most cases.


Here's one I found a while back:



Cygwin comes with mintty [1] now, which is a decent terminal, though it doesn't match iTerm, Gnome terminal, etc. in terms of features (like tabs).

Looks nice! The design of the example PDF is a bit noisy for my taste (the geometric shapes at the bottom of every page). And the demo PDF you generate by uploading a markdown file has a lot of whitespace. But I assume that's all tweak-able with a real account.

I got an "Oh no! We hit a snag processing your report. Markdown help." error without telling me what was wrong with the file. Seems like images break it.

For making these kinds of PDF I currently do this: 1. Write version controlled rst/markdown/creole. 2. Convert to HTML with a small script / command line tool (which also lets me do pre- and post-processing, like adding CSS). 3. Use chrome's print dialog to save the page as a PDF. This works pretty well for me.


Ah, yeah, I need a better message about images. They work fine if they're at a fully qualified URL.

The final output is indeed tweakable and there are 4 totally different templates to choose from.

I always encourage people to go with whatever system works best for them. I'm glad you have something that you like. :)


It's not on the list. The least expensive metros range from $0.50/sqft to $0.65/sqft and Detroit-Warren-Livonia, MI is $0.94/sqft. That metro area is larger than just the city of Detroit itself though, which is probably what you're curious about?


"asyncore" [1] has been in the stdlib since 1.5.2 (15 years ago!).

Twisted, gevent, tornado, etc. were newer projects and built to overcome the deficiencies and crudeness of asyncore. E.g.: https://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-ideas/2012-Septembe...

Asyncio is sort of a meta project to standardize and improve async in python, learning from all the work that's happened in the intervening years.

After registering, it gives you this message which says they'll help match you up with a mentee:

"Thanks for pledging to mentor! You’ll receive an email with more information about how to fulfill your pledge in early 2015, once we’re ready to match mentors with mentees!"


For Python there is pex [1].
