We’re back! Join us on September 22, 2022 at the Swiss Python Summit 2022.

This is going to be the final edition. And because we've been there and done that when it comes to sponsors, pitches, and e-mail campaigns, we'll do this one without any of those.

I just heard a number I did not know, there are more than 2 million stone blocks on the Great Pyramid. Somehow they didn't mention this when I visited the place.

And it was built in 27 years.

This means almost 10 blocks per hour, and an average of 2500kg per block.

Mind boggling.

Watching Midnight Mass and I like it very much.

Wait a second. Spotify podcasts has ads inserted in the middle of episodes? As a paying customer, this is ridiculous.

Watching Amanda Knox's interview on JRE. This is a tricky case.

Trying to learn about the Catuṣkoṭi and it's hard getting out of the classical logic mindset.

RIP Cecília Tanaka.
I wish I had been a good friend to you just as much as you were a good friend to me.

Watching volleyball game in the Olympics. This format sucks. I much prefer the 5 sets of 15 points plus serve advantage rules (pre-2000).
