@markwalker @andrew Durham museum of life and science is always a fun time!

If anyone at is interested in getting involved with DSF stuff, please find me today or tomorrow at the sprints. I can help with

- connecting you with a working group you might want to join, or helping you propose a new working group
- writing a nomination -- for yourself or someone else -- for the DSF board
- ... anything else DSF-related you can think of!

What can the DSF do for me? 🐂 @django

Neat post from @nessita on avoiding (maybe for your use-case) unwanted migrations when a model field's choices change. A good tool to have in the box 🔨

A few days ago I learned about grub theming and this is where it got me.

@adamchainz better than a single with many thousands of lines.

A pattern for Django model fields with sub-attributes (eg `obj.field.html`):

delighted to announce that my new zine "How Integers and Floats Work!" is out today!

You can get it here for $12:

It explains all of the surprising facts about how your computer does math, and it was SO fun to write.

@nixCraft Even with providers that support spending limits, their "eventually consistent" infrastructure means it's not a hard limit. I avoid usage based billing for anything I host.

@ErinRose It's important to surround yourself with inspiration!

Welcome to our new home in the Fed~~eration~~iverse. First of all- WOW we did not expect to surpass 300 users on this instance (and over 1K fediverse subscribers) within our first 48 hours and with little promotional effort. We are all excited to see where this long road goes.

Coming from Reddit and confused about Lemmy?

I had some stuff typed out, but honestly, this thread sums it up better. Check it out! It has infographics.

If you're still stressed out, remember that Lemmy is still new. Yes, it's ugly, but people said Reddit was ugly too (both are correct). As Lemmy grows, and continues, more tools will get made. Decentralization opens up a lot of possibilities we didn't have before. The future is bright.

Will other communities be setting up shop besides StarTrek, DaystromInstitute and Risa?

Yes! Eventually. Right now our focus is staying online, fast, and reliable which means keeping things focused while we find our footing. Daystrom, StarTrek and Risa were chosen to start off with because the three of them cover the "srs bsns ↔ shitposting" spread quite well.

If you are part of a community interested in being hosted on, send me a DM and we can try to work something out.

Qapla'! How can I support?

We've started a Patreon here: There's only one plan and it's just $4. If our growth continues like it has, we're going to need to upgrade our hosting very soon.

Will supporters have perks?

~~Yes! Eventually. We're still working that out. Which means we owe an extra big thank Thank you to those of you who are contributing now.~~

Probably not (unless you're Ferengi). See comment

If you have any questions for the team, please don't hesitate to ask in this thread (and yes the discussion thread for the Strange New Worlds season premiere will be up on /c/StarTrek later today, stay tuned!)🖖

Due to popular demand and to ensure the force remains in balance, I have added the Emoji empire​ emoji to balance out the Emoji rebel emoji.

@carlton I'm jealous and have a very well fed deer, bird, and squirrel population.

@CodenameTim What situations are you thinking of where a migration file is accidentally changed and not caught by diff/PR review? I don't exclude migrations from linters and frequently backfill no-op migration changes to previous files. For example, changing help_text or choice values.

@zzzeek @brettcannon asyncio vs threads. They each have their place. asyncio really needs nested event loops to fix the async -> sync -> async gap. Giving back some of the perf gains from py 3.11 to see the GIL gone is an acceptable price. Most python code tends to be glue for IO or compiled packages.

@thomasfuchs Same reason a floppy disk is the save icon. The original meaning of the thing survived beyond the original tech.

@jacob I had the same issue with my Masterbuilt smoker. Support was responsive, but they sent me the wrong replacement controller...twice.

Being able to adjust and monitor the temperature is worth the initial hassle.

I have a junior dev that's ready for his first job. If you're looking in that space, let me know. He's hard-working, persistent and literally loves programming. The problem we worked on today had him so excited. He just needs a shot at this point.

It turns out you can simply serve a file from a domain to use it as your bsky handle.

So this guy is now S3. All of S3.

Perfect, I don't see problem. No cookies, no Ads.

Six months of bulking has come to an end. Going from +500 kcal/day to -500 kcal/day is an unpleasant as it sounds. At least this is a mini cut and not the usual 16 - 20 weeks of getting in to Spartan shield condition.

@thomasfuchs Multi-purpose rocket. It started to dig out the flame trenches with the launch.
