I'm staying late to listen a morning radio show on BBC 6

I would not write all that, if Chesterton didn't go to America and wrote about it. This is how he begins:

The BBC, by the way did a good job and they managed to show the issues England currently faces

Chesterton, converted to Cathoilicism from Anglicanism, in that twist comparison to Sherlock is even more interesting.

Some even say that Chesterton, the author of Father Brown, is a better writer than Doyle.

The TV series is based on a series of stories. The stories themselves are contrasted to Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes. While Sherlock is all about pure reasoning, Brown is more about human psychology and morality.

Have you watched Father Brown? It's a BBC series available on Netflix, at least in the US. It's about a Roman Catholic priest who solves murders.

The reason I need to log in in the first place is that I use the Temporary Containers extension for Firefox.

Once I close a tab with YouTube, I'll have to login. It's slightly annoying at the beginning but makes me question first whether I really need to visit YouTube.

@vecna It's still men talking, but I do think you'll see less to object to in Libre Lounge: librelounge.org/

At the very least they (mostly) discuss the aspects I'm interested rather than geek out over the components.

I keep away from Google services just because I can't bother to log in.

In one morning I've learned that there is progress in porting MS Office to Linux and that Twitter announced plans to build decentralized social media protocol.

For limited time only! If you go to ainlconf.ru/ click the Proceedings button you can read an article titled Retrieval of Visually Shared News by yours truly.

It's about all you care about: Twitter, news, propaganda and machine learning.

Have a read. I've enjoyed rereading. Next week I'll present it in Tartu, Estonia.

Yay, i'm back again. My instance run out of space. Media took too much space.

I'm dealing with a codebase full of

try:
<20 lines of code>
except Exception as e:
logger.error(e)

constructions. It's hard to debug because there is no way to set a breakpoint inside of such try block.

Any suggestions how to deal and eliminate such code?

pip supports constrain files, which is a nice addition to requirements files. So requirements should list packages needed to be installed and constraints versions that need to be used.

Am I the only one who thinks that recent changes to Spotify make actual music listening process worse and are directed towards subscription-based content (read podcasts)?

I even have a friend who is running one. As true friends we could backup relay each other emails. That's what I call trust.

I'm thinking of starting an instance of a federated network called email.

With the American obsession with IPAs and hops in general, my beer choice is usually limited to 1-2 pilsners.
