I like how @hynek’s example of an exception to the no subclassing rule of thumb is… exceptions.

Weird question, but anyone at have a sewing kit I can use? Part of my bag is… hanging on by a thread.

(Don’t go out of your way to help with this - I’m just hoping to save myself like 20 minutes by avoiding a trip to the store)

Caught up with @brianokken and @mkennedy, who for some reason weren’t talking at 3x speed in person.

If you missed my talk but still want to see it, the video is already available for PyCon Online and in-person attendees!

Anyone know how to make CSS have the strikethrough line be in the same place when there’s a line through text that includes two fonts like this?

We seem to have lost one of the “2” decorations, but thanks to a bit of quick thinking, I don’t think anyone will notice.

When you’re doing walking lunges next to someone doing high steps and another person doing lateral band walks.

Yesterday I released version 0.6.0 of my audiobook RSS server, audio-feeder:

It takes your directory of audiobooks and generates an RSS feed for each one, so that you can listen to them in your standard podcast listening flow.

I’m particularly happy with the new feature “rendered feeds”, which uses ffmpeg behind the scenes to generate alternate feeds where the audiobook is broken up along different lines.

Hm… PEP 621 deliberately doesn’t have a replacement for setuptools’s license, but they do have a license key that is equivalent to license_files. Unfortunately, this is what PyPI does with the data in that field:
