So if I want to do a python GUI on linux, just for personal use, what would y'all recommend? GTK> Tkinter? QT? Or is there something else really good? I don't need a lot, I just want it to be easy, reasonably full featured, and not randomly break in 3 months when I haven't touched it. :/

Fixed it for you. ;)

@deavmi I am playing the world's smallest violin for you having to copy-paste three times.

PSA for parents 

Today at the playground I learned of a gruesome injury that ER staff call "slide leg". When a parent and little kid go down a slide together, and the little kid gets their leg caught on something, the extra momentum from the parent's big body can cause the leg to...well...let's just say today we met a 2 year-old boy with a full leg cast, a victim of "slide leg", and the story sounded indeed quite gruesome.

Kiddo generally only goes down the slide solo, anyway, but now I'll be quite strict about that.

I think there's a great deal to be said in favour of the model of a timesharing system with terminals, but that it works best if (a) the admins are known to, & responsible to the users ; & (b) the terminals are made to be durable & supported for a long time.

Definitely the situation we have now is not like that at all.

@Kymberly I suggest you attend Mass even if you don't receive Communion. We are not required to receive the Blessed Sacrament every time we attended Mass, and even though it's not the Sacrament, to worship God together and be present at Our Lord's Transubstantiation is a great grace and blessing.

@gemlog @snowdusk_ Do you think snowdusk is blocked by the Great Firewall?

@gemlog @snowdusk_ Nope.

Anyway, it's better for my telecommuting productivity to not have the temptation to interact.

@gemlog @snowdusk_ For some reason, I can't get the tilderadio stream to play with any of the software I've tried.

@gemlog Enjoying your request of "Major Tom" on snowdusk's show on SoundCloud. @snowdusk_

Anyone want to take an online meet-up? There's one planned on the Bootcamp schedule on Sunday, June 28 at 17:00 UTC.
