Lois what are some good resources for weaning oneself off jquery...
Martijn Set-up uBlock to block all Javascript
Adam Douglas The day Netflix loses Star Trek is the day I cancel my subscription. Until then, it's unlimited Star Trek and even a sprinkling of Chinese cartoons when the mood takes me. Ah yes, that's the real benefit of freelancing 70% remotely to be honest: cereal + Voyager + code days all year.
Lois nerdiest comment of the year. do you ever go out?

☕ David Antoine I think I have read somewhere that the next one could come with LTE connectivity but nothing sure...

☕ David Antoine The fingerprint scanner will eventually be placed on the back of the phone if they can't embed it under the screen... We will see, but I'm more curious about the next Apple watch, especially if it is capable of measuring blood sugar levels, according to some reports/rumors. This could be a big selling point as well as being very useful for diabetics I guess, if done right of course.
Lois i would just like an apple watch that i could use without an iphone. i don't mind talking to my wrist like a crazy person if i could stop carrying this phone everywhere

Adam Douglas It's nothing new. The BBC can't afford to put a foot wrong, so it panders to whomever can put it under financial pressure. Though years ago they still used to put some good programmes out. TV is worthless in an age where you can pick what you want and watch it when you want. I don't vouch for Netflix or any of the others, because the reality is you're paying for 6 shows that are worth watching and hundreds of shows you watch simply because it's there. I don't really bother watching anything now. Except Star Trek repeats.
Lois yeah i don't like subscription stuff. i like just paying for stuff when i want to watch it. google play works well for me.

Lois i see. ironic that the average post length is less than a tweet, despite the freedom to go beyond

🧙 Lucian Marin It's built on top of Django 1.8, but code is compatible with Django 1.11 too. I don't see a reason to upgrade just yet. The project started on 1.5 or 1.6, I forgot.
Lois django templates or jinja2? what db - postgresql?

🧙 Lucian Marin ...along with threads from Reddit, but without subreddits. It's more like a single, general purpose subreddit called Sublevel.
Lois i'm not familiar with reddit. i mean i knowit exists but never paid it a visit. this works nicely though. so you wrote it with python i'm guessing from your other message - did you use something like django or flask or is it from scratch?

🧙 Lucian Marin I find Node.js to be much friendlier than Java based alternatives: Clojure, ClojureScript running on Node.js (this is a thing nowadays), Scala or Kotlin. Java is a menace. I will always pick the right tool for the job, Python on backend, JavaScript on frontend. I find no reason for cross compilation.
Lois it's madness, and regarding java, that goes without staying. never heard of kotlin or scala. i like python, best thing to be working with. javascript is unavoidable on the front end, though i prefer jquery. saves a lot of needless agro.

Lois i don't know why people trust the BBC. it's just a propaganda machine for the government. granted, the other channels can't be trusted either because they'll produce or say anything for the ads/ratings. i just won't watch tv i think.

🧙 Lucian Marin Simplenote for macOS is now an Electron app. 3 processes, 40 threads, 120 MB of RAM, 150 MB of disk space just for taking notes. The old app had 1 process, 10 threads, 60 MB of RAM and only 5 MB of disk space.
Lois it's a joke. similarly nodeJS is the worst thing since ruby. theres literally not a single redeemable feature. and it has ruined web development. now everything has a build ritual. so hideously over complex now. and it's not even some kind of perf advantage. electron brought it to the desktop. good bye speedy desktop applications...
