`attrs` is a great way to reduce boilerplate on classes in #Python, but I've held off on using it because static analysis tools in the IDE don't understand it.
So I am excited to hear that #PyCharm 2018.2 will have built-in support for attrs! 🙌

When my team at work switched to GitLab, we found it could be slow at times, so we signed up for a dedicated instance at githost.io.
GitLab (the company) has since stopped hosting individual instances like that, saying they prefer to focus on one GitLab dotcom for hosted plans and on-premise for individuals, but sometimes it's really nice to not be on the same servers as gitlab dotcom.

Checking in to find that your feed contains fallout and echos of *some* big conversation is always disorienting.
These messages that assume some context, but only implicitly, and are broadcast omnidirectionally.
We could use a curated periodical or expert system that produces a more local version of "WTF Just Happened Today."

I just learned instances have custom emoji.
Most of these abbreviations I am familiar with, but what is ?
and in pypy 6.0, matplotlib, pygobject, pygame now work!
New PyPy release! Contains a nice batch of improvements from a recent sprint, further improving performance with legacy CPython extensions as well as making some error reporting more helpful.
Clearly it needs a "toot your character" button.
I found this issue describing the need for mastodon clients to support share intents: https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/issues/442#issuecomment-313102462
but I'm not sure how to add one to my site as an author.
"You guys don't have popcorn no more?"
"No more popcorn, sorry."
I was waiting for my refill at the pharmacy, but it's not the pharmacy it was. The old branding is taped over while they put up the CVS signs.
Central Drugs, 1903 – 2018.
It was one of the last independently owned pharmacies I knew of in the city.
I didn't see Gary there, which is unusual. Did he retire from it when CVS took over?
I love what reactji, made popular by Slack, have done for text chat and I hardly know how to converse without them anymore.
The Slack I frequent most has made extensive additions to our emoji set. But today Slack switched to using platform-native emoji and it's thrown us into disarray. https://toot.cat/media/u2XQmRj0J_VZVRmny4c

Once again, a critical part of my company's product's software stack (that we don't pay for! yay open source!) has approximately 0.05 maintainers with PRs for core functionality going unaddressed.
Despite the fact that I thought this was a very widely-used component. (*everyone* uses S3! Right?)
Wondering how we can make software outlive the attention span of its individual contributors.
