Django's built-in pagination supports this: https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.9/topics/pagination/#opt...

Although I work in Django routinely I haven’t had to touch pagination stuff for ages and wasn’t aware it had orphan control. I’m delighted!

I've only contributed a few patches to Mercurial but meeting Matt and learning from him (mostly on the HG mailing lists) has taught me a lot. He's influenced how I think about and work with code at a really basic level. I wish him the best in whatever he decides to do.

-----


Yep I'm bad at copy/paste. Fixed, thanks.

Not as far as I know. Let me know if you do find it -- I'm kicking myself for not thinking of scraping it then.

Similarly "VAC" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valve_Anti-Cheat whenever he does something seemingly impossible (like knowing about the stream or doing a particularly impressive save).

> He's likely bilingual (or tri, or quad, or more) since he's from Iceland.

Not quite, unfortunately. I just moved here a couple of months ago (I'm from the US). I am taking Icelandic classes though, and I do speak a bit of American Sign Language from my undergrad time at RIT. So I'm working on it.

Also yeah, getting the hell off of reddit/facebook/hn is extremely important. Sometimes HN is good for finding interesting reading (I hit hckrnews.com once or twice a day to find good links) but always remember the golden rule of the internet: http://shouldireadthecomments.com

I don't have twitter, so I'll just leave this here: perhaps it'd be fun to graph the time delay between RUINED and SAVED?

>but always remember the golden rule of the internet: http://shouldireadthecomments.com

Rather ironic you should post that here :).

Huh, didn't know you can iframe a whole web page...

At first I thought this page just ripped all the Wikipedia stylesheets and html but its just all one big iframe.

-----


Ha! That link got a great laugh out of me.

To be good at everything you have to accept that you'll never be great at anything. I've made peace with that (for the most part).

Also I don't have kids or a mortgage so I have more flexibility than most.

-----


If "everything" is simply interpreted as many things, I believe one can be great at something and good at many things. If you interpret "everything" as a vast number of things, then being good at a vast number of things is a greatness in itself. Peace is good, but I'm not sure this is the right application.

-----


"Making peace with <x>" on a personal level is just "coming to terms with <x>" or "accepting <x>."

In this case, OP is probably accepting that he will never be a "master" or "guru" at something, while at the same time reaching "good" status on many things. This acceptance probably helps with not feeling that you are failing all of the time (i.e. not good enough) because you haven't reached some sort of "master/guru" status.

I'm not 100% sure how they're doing it. It seems to be both bad words and spammy stuff (e.g. a line of just "KappaRoss KappaRoss KappaRoss..." a hundred times over will get removed too).

The IRC gateway passes through everything so I'm seeing it all unfiltered (as far as I can tell).

    googol  NYSE:GOOG      ??? lines              Google

It's obviously Googol lines.

-----


This is excellent. Upvoted, obviously, but I also just wanted to reply to say I laughed out loud and also thought, "Yeah, that does seem about right."

-----


I haven't been on-the-grid much lately for a couple of reasons:

* Doing a lot more meatspace stuff (guitar, bass, photography, etc). * Getting ready to move to Iceland to go back to grad school in the fall.

Once things calm down with the move I'll likely be writing/coding publicly a lot more again.
